Getting Squirrel-y

Texas is definitely under a heat wave right now - at least where we live!  It was 105 for several days running this past week and is just TOO HOT!!


I caught this little guy hoping someone would come out and at least fill the bird bath so he could get a drink!   While I was taking the picture, he just kept looking up at me with these sad, sad eyes - so yes, I DID give him some water and he's a happy camper once again. 

I guess these are the squirrel days of summer instead of the dog days of summer.  He sorta looks like I feel at times in this heat!

Thanks for stopping by...........and hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Oh my, that is so cute!!! And thanks for giving him some water.Poor thing!!! Must have been ready to pass out from heat exhaustion!

Anne Temple said...

Too cute! Glad you gave him some water. It's supposed to be 106 here today, so it will probably be even hotter there. Try to stay cool.

Awwww, happy squirrel. What a fantastic photo, Lynn! So glad you gave him water and the birds will probably be happy too. Of course, that assumes they haven't all flown north for the summer to get out of the heat. :-D

Oh wow, he looks hot! We have two squirrels that moved in our backyard this summer and they too hang out in the birdbaths but it doesn't get nearly as hot here. We are having a hot spell which for us is a week at 90 degrees.

Now that's a GREAT photograph!! If we had to run around in fur coats in 105 degree temps, we'd look like this too! Poor little guy! I'm betting he'll return for a fresh drink of water one day again soon too :)

You need to send this to the news stations, it is too funny and just says it all about the heat. Poor little guy, glad you gave in and put water in the bowl for him :) Loving your Merry Monday card, that is so striking with the colors.

Our weather is very poor for the time of year so we could do with a bit of your sunshine/warmth - love the pciture of the aquirrel - did you fill the bird bath up so he could have a drink - best wishes Lesley x

Marilyn said...

Great pic Lynn and good on ya for getting him the water. The concrete was probably cooling him off but water is better!

Melissa said...

What a GREAT photo, Lynn! He looks exactly how I feel in the heat we're having! Blah! A little is okay, but weeks on end gets old! Here's hoping we get some rain and some milder days soon!!! :)
