SQUIRRELS!!! DEMON SQUIRRELS!!! Who like Special K Cracker Chips! (Just sayin') Morning btw!
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
Not sure where the Noddy is off to, or if she forgot the diary this morning, but I am stepping in and sharing with all of you the demon squirrel from Lake Eola park a few weeks ago when FloridaSNMom's daughter and I had originally gone to see the steel drum band (which didn't end up being the steel drum band, unfortunately).
This morning started off with a bang, literally. I fell heading out the door this morning, wrenched my ankle and jarred my back, so I was achey and unable to walk the just over 2 miles to the bus stop this morning. So, my injured self called out of work, took some pain meds, ate (thank you thyroid med), and then passed out for a few more hours after icing my ankle. Am doing better now, but my back is still achey, my ankle doesn't hurt near as much, but still would not have been wise to walk to work, and then stand on it for several hours and then try and come home without wanting to cry (because there'd been enough when I fell earlier).
So, there are pictures and there is even a video of one of the squirrels nomming on a chip (that little bit decided that I should include as well).
