The Nest turns ten in a few weeks, but since I don’t expect anyone to buy any presents for me, I’ll be giving the gifts to you! And wrapped inside your next tampon box full of fun are my favorite squirrel photos I took in 2017… our sixth full year on WordPress and far and away one of the most interesting…
2017 was the year I retired my comic strip after 281 weekly editions. It was the first full year of its replacement, Shelf Critter Theatre, which ended the year with its only recurring story line over just what was in Mitzi’s eggs. It was the year I presented some of the random treasures in my photo archive A to Z style. It was the year I launched a countdown of some of my least favorite iconic songs. And it may have been The Nest’s best year ever at producing random silliness, whether it be bad Japanese late night shows, Soviet pop concerts, setting possums on fire, stupidly bad popular toys, or having my fascist blog threatened by Antifa…
Lost in all the madness that was 2017 were all of the great squirrel pics it produced! Let’s look back at the sciurine year that was…

Yeah, you can see right through most of my BS commentary…. like this squirrel’s transparent tail.
What’s a squirrel photo montage without a little “action?”
Hey buddy, wanna play?
The real evil squirrel controlling things from upon high…
Keep plastic bags out of reach of squirrels…
This squirrel was part of a great Saturday Squirrel skit I put together with Sewie…
Squirrel, view from below…
He looks like he got his nose stuck in that nut!
Not us! The humans left their trash on the ground!
Golden tailed squirrels are cuter!
And finally, the runaway squirrel of the year for 2017….
What, doesn’t everyone eat their nuts upside down?
