Longtime readers of The Nest know I sprinkle my posts with a liberal dose of self depreciation… often referring to my content with words that would have left the bad taste of soap in your mouth had your mother caught you using them. Anyone who casts as many mocking and sarcastic stones as I do should never be afraid to throw twice as many through their own glass house. But there is one feature on my blog that I can’t even pretend to throw under the bus, and that is my Saturday Squirrel series! Poorly drawn comics, bizarre prompts, killer earworms and chronic possum carnage can be an acquired taste, but everyone loves cute pictures of squirrels!
This post is unofficially my 200th Saturday Squirrel post, with the wishy-washy designation coming because I used the category tag somewhat erratically whenever I posted a squirrel photo at first. The series was mainly a dumping ground for sciurine pictures during its early days, but over time it evolved into more of an educational and entertaining feature as well, and sometimes a mix of both.
One thing it has definitely accomplished…. it has long made my readers smile!
Here’s to another 200-plus Saturday Squirrels! And has been the traditional Saturday Squirrel sign-off…..
