January Wordless Wednesday Link Up: Squirrel Ski Jump


By on 1/28/2014 07:26:00 AM

We have had a psycho squirrel living in our maple tree since late last spring. I am not sure if he's truly crazy--or just clumsy--but, he does some odd things. He has fallen out of the tree a few times (once inches from my head), he taunts the cats outside the front window, and he frequently peeks into my office window from atop the rose trellis--thoroughly scaring us both to death....I scream, he jumps...same scenario...different days. We have had a bit of snow again--and, I thought I'd share my latest hmmmm-inspired photo as this week's Wordless Wednesday Link-Up.

Squirrel Ski Jump?

While I didn't see Squirrel Nutcase create this Squirrel Sized Ski Jump--I'm pretty sure he did it. It's his usual M.O.--and path from the back deck to the front tree.


I am sure he probably made it safely from the end of the "ski slope" to his happy home in the tree.  I do think I can make a valid case for his insanity; however, if I see a new jump trail today.

After the frog in the fireplace, nothing really surprises me anymore--but, things do kind of make me shake my head and smile!

Enjoy your Wednesday--and don't forget to link up your latest, favorite Wordless Wednesday posts!

  23. This is really just too funny. Can you just imagine seeing your squirrelly squirrel on its make-shift roof top slop with a pair of nutshells strap to its feet and tiny twinge for poles? There could be a cute children's story in this. Thanks for stopping by & joining my WW linky party!
