So apparently January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day. I don’t mind squirrels – even the grey one that sorta rules my backyard, stares my down when I come out with the dogs, leaves me bread in the winter and pears in the summer… So it is nice that there is a day to appreciate them. But January 21?!?! The temperatures outside in Toronto on this January 21, 2014 is -23o C (or -8o F) so I’m thinking of renaming the today as Freeze Your Nuts Off Day. Stay warm everyone – especially our furry squirrelly friends.
