Dear Treetop Squirrel
Please give me the strength to get through another day in the backyard jungle, and with Your omniscient eye, help me keep an eye out for those evil cats who would like to do me harm. Please also use your healing powers for my friend Ralph, who seems to have come down with a case of the mange. You will see him in confessional later on today, as I had warned him about taking that nasty squirrel back to his nest last night.
Please accept my humble gratitude for the simple things You have put on this earth for us squirrels to get by on… thank you for the trees to dwell and leap freely through, thank you for the twigs and leaves for which we may build warm, cozy nests out of, thank you for the acorns for which to fill our always hungry bellies… please, keep those acorns coming, Treetop Squirrel. We also thank you for the corncobs that appear by only Your divine powers on the tree trunk, and offer You a sacrifice of a possum to ensure that feeder keeps getting replenished.
Please bless us squirrels with another fun and productive day of digging up the yard, chasing each other through the trees, taunting those silly dogs, and borrowing food from the birdfeeders, which we only do for Your glory, Treetop Squirrel.
Oh, and thank you Treetop Squirrel for blogs like this one which spread the Good Word about us squirrels, and I am especially grateful to You for allowing me the honor of being this week’s Saturday Squirrel. I continue to be in awe of Your great powers, Oh Holy Bushy Tailed One… but if You don’t mind doing a small favor for us all, I do have one more minor trifle upon which to ask for Your intervention….
COULD YOU PLEASE PUT AN END TO THIS #$&@*()#& WINTER WEATHER ALREADY!?!?!?!?
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
