A Deluxe Apartment In The Sky

Here's a tip, Ralph.  Don't waste your money on Powerball tickets.

Here’s a tip, Ralph. Don’t waste your money on Powerball tickets.

It’s time to put the hump back into Wednesday with another fine piece of bonerfide shitty photography in the weekly feature we like to call Picture Day here at The Nest!  Warning: the picture dayfollowing post is not for the acrophobic….

Last week, Cee’s “Share Your World” prompt that a number of my followers answer on their blogs contained a rather strange question…

Would you like to sleep in a human size nest in a tree or be snuggled in a burrowed spot underground?

So last week while I was taking a well deserved vacation on Mecca’s tab, I tried to make a stop at the park hoping for some good squirrel pictures while all the leaves were gone from the trees.  It wound up being too cold and cloudy for the critters to be out and about…. but before I left I did take this interesting photo….

Ahhhhh, home sweet home.... for the fucking insane.

Ahhhhh, home sweet home…. for the fucking insane.

That telephone pole in the foreground provides plenty of perspective of just how high up that squirrel’s nest is off the ground.  Ground that, incidentally, happens to be very hard concrete since that branch extends over a paved walk-through garden.  Could you imagine a squirrel or two sitting in that nest on the very end of a branch that has to be at least 100 feet off the ground over a very splattable sidewalk?  Would you want to be the baby squirrels born in that nest and having to look down at certain doom if your pesky little brother decided to start rocking the branch?

Is that underground burrow starting to sound like a pretty good idea now?

Let me move in with you and I promise not to drown you like a rat.

Hopefully you will be over your vertigo when I return with another inspired picture next week…

    Pretty pic. I love this blog. 😀

  2. I like this fabulous nest… and with the telephone pole that squirrel probably has free internet connection and free phonecalls, very clever :o)

    No way I’m living up that high off of the ground. Nope.

    Hmm, where’s the single most dangerous place in the world I can build my nest…

    Squirrels seem so smart but then they go and do something like that! It was probably a dare made while a few of them were under the influence of some fermented acorns. I do hope no little ones were raised in that death trap. And, yes. The underground burrow is looking better now!

  6. Burrow, definitely burrow. Now I have The Jefferson’s theme song in my head. A deeeeee-luxe apartment in the skyyyyyyyyyy!

    “Moving on up. To a deluxe apartment in the sky…” I want the penthouse please. No dungeons for me.

    It probably looked better with a bunch of leaves around it. I’m afraid I would have to go for the nest. I cannot fathom being underground. Nope, uh uh. I’m not even getting buried! In fact I’m coming back to haunt ya! 😉

  9. an adrenalin junkie! LOL!

  10. There is a minor downside to being underground. Which we in the north east of England are well aware of just at the moment… Too much water means you’re suddenly out of a home.
