Yesterday the weather was beautiful . The Delaire Landing Condo Community has beautiful grounds . It was 48 degrees and sunny most of the day . I finally was able to take a walk . The Delaware River was frozen and you could hear the ice breaking it was a thunderous sound . The ice breaking up and floating down the river . I never remember seeing or hearing these sounds before . Sounded like a boom .
Bravely walking on the green grass to take these pictures .Some areas that were frozen now mud. Yuck got some mud on my sneakers .You really had to be careful . Finally I was back on the pavement . Suddenly two squirrels passed me . To my surprised one of these squirrel's turned around . He actually backtracked looked at me . I saw this little fellow stop and come back . He slowly walked toward me. The squirrel stopped I stopped too . This brave little squirrel walked right up to me and looked up at me . I really wished I had something to give him some food .
Now I know "do not feed the animals" but it has been so bitter cold out . Can you imagine how hungry this squirrel was . I know they do damage . People have told me they eat their car wires . Some jump in their cars and bite them . Carrie on "Sex in the City " calls squirrels rats with fancy tails I can not help but feel for these animals .This little fellow came right up to my foot
Actually waited for me to take a picture
What harm would it do to buy a bag of peanuts and throw some down around the trees along the river . Plain roasted peanuts of course no salt
