The Squirrel's Plea

"Please, may I have a peanut? I know it is not suppertime, but I would love to have a peanut."
I wouldn't answer the squirrel's plea, so she came down from hoe post and circled me a few times, all in vain. 

Christmas Lights

Tonight was spend at Bob & Kendra Cross' home. 
After a time of food and fellowship, we climbed into two vehicles and took a tour of I don't know where, to a neighborhood loaded and decorated with Christmas Lights. We went north on Honore Avenue until after the third round-about, then turned left. I got a few good photos as a sample of much more beauty.
