So I’m sure you’ve heard about all the storms and flooding here in Texas. Well, Suzette and I are fine. But we lost at least one good squirrel. Cross the “squirrel whisperer” found the bloated corpse after one of our recent monsoons and tried to save him, but despite his valiant efforts (and favorite Spiderman PJs) was unsuccessful.
What I didn’t really expect was all the overprotective family members and well-meaning friends who jumped in to trumpet the dangers of picking up a dead animal after I posted this pic on Facebook. Suzette and I aren’t afraid of dirty hands and we love when our kids run around outside exploring stuff. The dangers of letting your kids sit around watching TV all day is way greater than the dangers of picking up a drowned squirrel. What do you think?
