Footwear - TP

to another
post with our theme of


Time to give an intruder the boot!

Once upon time a pair of shoes running wild and free

were thought to belong to human feet.
But they were not human feet at all!

"It doesn't matter how great your shoes are
 if you don't accomplish anything in them."
Martina Boone

On with my shoe story-

In what's becoming a squirrel house far from Paris
that's not even all covered in vines
lives two dogs, two humans and one cat

(put in a (locked bathroom away from my pets) where we thought the squirrel left through an opened window, but was too stupid to leave gracefully-

oh squirrel number 2 you are causing much anxiety!

Dear squirrels, cute as a button in statue form or in nature
 and you may eat from my garden, (I might be changing this come spring)
trample through my flowerbeds but never, ever enter our house!

What is allowed in our house of two dogs,
 one cat and two humans are possibly

In the middle of the night tiny little feet

in red sneakers scampering about
and in case somebody turned on the light
you might spot something else that's not quite right

Oh no, more critters?

A moose (stuffed) wearing my brand new winter boots!

But, never ever any other kind of rodent!

"We are not trapped or locked up in these bones.
No, No. We are free to change.  
And love changes us.
And if we can love another, 
we can break open the sky."
Walter Mosley from Blue Light

So take heed squirrels follow the blue light into nature!

Please remember all squirrels in my neighborhood, 
Mr. Moose is a welcomed critter, even if he steals my boots.

Just in case you were wondering about the owner of those red sneakers,
here he is!

Thanks for stopping in dear friends, 
and if you have any ideas for getting rid of squirrels
inside our house do let me know!

Good luck with the squirrel(s). Tricky critters I believe.

you are fun but there is a deep something in your silliness that makes it more than silliness, dear

You are making me feel much better about the scritching about I have heard in MY attic! Seems good for now...but very disquieting indeed!

Oh, my gosh! You rock, my friend! I loved this. You really do this so well. I want to be like you when I grow up. Hugs.

I see you are plagued by that Anonymous American Man as well as me.

Squirrels would get short shift here as well. I wondered for a while whether the red and white socks were yours in order to survive the winter whether. I should have known better.

Yes Bob, you are right, and it's been a long time, those kinds of comments used to come up a lot. I try to delete them as soon as I can!

As of now, well since Friday morning actually, we are once again without a squirrel (hopefully) in our house. But we still have the live trap set and at the ready in our furnace room. So just beware squirrels out there! We'll get ya!
