MY SQUIRREL

My squirrel keeps eating the walnuts I leave but she doesn’t seem to be getting fatter or showing me more love. Are any of you knowledgeable enough to know if it’s a girl or boy? I think girl. All I know is that feeding her my nuts everyday makes me feel good. About 7 years ago, I was in a swimming pool in Baha, California, when I heard the news that the Fukushima Japanese nuclear power plant had had a serious accident. I know something about these things. I made “China Syndrome” and I’ve studied the subject of nuclear energy so I was overcome with emotion. Right then, I saw that a bee had fallen into the swimming pool and was struggling. I wanted above all else to save that bee and I did, scooping it out of the pool with a leaf. In fact, I think I blogged about doing that and how it made me feel better. Just doing that little act of kindness helped. It’s like that with my squirrel.

  1. Hi Ms Fonda squirrels only retrieve one in five nuts they burry I leave the two that visit our garden monkey nuts and watch them munch away. X

  2. Hi Jane! I was going through some of your old workout videos, and I saw Leslie Lilien. I searched the internet for her, but there were no records of her except a very tiny imdb credit. I was wondering, are you still in touch with her, and if so how is she doing?
