We are like squirrels in so many ways, for we
gather so many things in our life even though we
don't really need them and we put them away and
forget where we put things.
The squirrels are the same way, they put there nuts in so many places, they hide them and that is how we get so many different trees and they
plant the acorn not knowing it will grow up to be a mighty big oak.
They play like children, they chase each other up and down the trees and jump to other limbs without fallin sometimes they can even be greedy with the nuts especially in the winter when food is scarce.
Sounds like some of us humans where we want everything we see not realizing that someone else may need it or want it and it changes the attitude and we may even get nasty about it.
Some squirrels get nasty with each other because they may seem a little different and may chatter a bit differenty and the other squirrels try to
chase them ut of there territory or may even try to kill them, just to get rid of them. We humans do the same things with guns and if we are in a nasty mood bang.
Squirrels also stand their ground toward other squirrels and will be greedy with their nuts and guard them like their children. We humans do the same things with our children and if we see someone trying to hurt them we get defensive and guard them and protect them the best we know how.
Squirrels try to find a clever way to climb and get onto bird feeders and they have a way to do it and they do it, if we humans let them. It is very hard to keep them off no matter how hard we try. We can turn our backs for just one minute and they are back on and we don't know how they do it at times no matter how long we watch them.
We humans try to be clever on ways to get out of trouble and find ourselves in deeper, so we try our very best to lie, make up stories and people tend to believe them until they check them out or know that we cannot be trusted for one minute. If we are in trouble with the law, we try to weasle ourselves out and try to sneek out when we can, especially when they have their backs turned.
