A grackle, a squirrel and a husband

Now that we are very much empty nesters, we can do some spur of the moment kind of things. With only two of us, it doesn’t take long to pack a picnic lunch, drive to Houston for a scheduled doctor visit and sit an enjoy that lunch in Herman Park.

We had thought we might like to go to the zoo—but it required pre-paid tickets—with no place to buy them on-site.

So we sat and watched this young squirrel enjoy his treat of our leftover crumbs. He did not dare come too close, watched us closely and would run up a nearby tree after he had grabbed his treat.

the grackle did not want to be left out—chex mix seemed to be a favorite

And here he is—trying to keep an eye on all the squirrels heading our way.

And no we did not feel guilty about feeding the squirrel–they dug into the trash cans with leftovers from other park guests,….we offered water in the top of a bottle–declined by both the grackle and the squirrels.
