Rocky the Rescued Squirrel continues his road to recovery with Natasha, his now-litter mate. According to the vet tech who told me about him, the Squirrel Whisperer (Glenn is his name) who took Rocky is also a sculptor who works with metal. He has built a metal cage around a tree so the little babies can have some time outside until they are old enough to be released into the wild.
Glenn texted me on Friday reporting that Rocky is now climbing upside down already. He sent these new photos of the bright-eyed, and bushy-tailed Rocky:
Isn’t he ADORABLE?!?! So cute…
The vet tech also told me that the Whisperer is very careful with these babies, keeping them int he garage so they do not hear human sounds like televisions and radios. He interacts with them as little as possible so they don’t become tame.
But, there is one little squirrel he rescued who has a bad leg. As a result, he cannot be released back into the wold and lives with Glenn, and his one-eyed Pug. The vet tech told me the funniest story about the little squirrel and the dog. To give you an idea, watch the video below, only imagine a Pub instead:
Isn’t that hilarious? Oh, I might add that this dog looks VERY much like our own DJ (short for Don Juan – it’s the eyebrows!).
He’s a handsome fellow, isn’t he? Anyway, yeah, just imagine a little squirrel riding around on a dog, and that is what the Squirrel Whisperer has going on his house!
And speaking of being squirrely (ahem), I think that sums up this Election Season, don’t you? Despite what the pundits are saying, this campaign has just started. There are many more States that still haven’t had their say. This weekend is no exception with the following states weighing in. From 2016-Primary-Caucus.org (this is a good reference for seeing when the rest of the states vote):

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in these weekend contests, who will add to their delegate counts, and how the media will spin the results regardless of the results. I reckon time will tell, and feel free to discuss the results in the Comments below.
But before we get too far from Thursday night’s debate, and since this is a Weekend Open Thread, I have got to share a very funny Federalist article with you. This one contains Tweets from the Debate, and they were hilarious. Sad, but funny, if you know what I mean.
Here, then, are some of the Tweets set up by the Federalist author, Kyle Sammin:
[…] The tone of the conversation did not improve from there. Segueing from the ongoing conversation about the size of his hands, Trump sought to establish that—well, I’ll let Twitter explain. […]
Moderator Mike Wallace challenged Trump on his deficit reduction plans, and brought some charts to back him up.
Donald Trump: Here’s my plan.
Chris Wallace: You’re an idiot and here is a graphic showing how 9:23 PM – 3 Mar 2016
Geebus, Trump can’t spell, and they’re asking him to explain math? 9:23 PM – 3 Mar 2016
ROTFLMAO – come on, that was funny!! Ahahaha.
But wait, there is more from The Federalist:
[…] Trump proclaimed that, through negotiation, he would save more money on prescription drugs than the government actually spends on prescription drugs. Wallace was not impressed.
Donald Trump appears to be insisting that you can cut $300 billion from $78 billion in government spending. 9:24 PM – 3 Mar 2016
[…] Cruz got a question on immigration, but he turned it on Trump, questioning his commitment to reducing illegal immigration, noting his campaign donations to Democrats who support amnesty, and suggesting that he told The New York Times off the record that his Mexican wall idea was all bluster.
There were many more good ones in there, and I recommend the entire post. It literally had me laughing out loud. Funny!
And hey, these days, getting a good laugh out of some of these antics of the candidates is the only way to keep us from crying at some of the lunacy and idiocy being spouted n both sides of the aisle.
In closing, I have to share this song with you in honor of the comments by both Senators, Cruz and Rubio, during the debate on Thursday night:
Ahahaha. Yeah, just in case the good Senators want to get some as a little gift for the “flexible” Donald Trump...
That’s it for me. Keep an eye out for those results this weekend. Feel free to discuss the Caucuses and Primaries, the debate, or ROCKY, or whatever else is on your minds.
This is the Weekend Open Thread!
