Squirrel Whisperer

Folks, this is my dad, the famous Squirrel Whisperer of East Pine Street. Scurious Sciuridae skitter from miles around to eat treats out of my parents' back yard. He has the squirrels so tame that they literally eat out of his hand.
But it's not just the personally harvested chestnuts, walnuts, hickory nuts and ear corn that the bushy-tailed rodents are after---it's the FUN! Mom & Dad's backyard is literally a squirrel amusement park. There's the whirly-bird gadget to which four ears of corn are attached and my personal favorite, the bungee-cord feeder. Not only does all this provide endless hours of entertainment for the squirrels, the humans are equally amused.
