While walking in the area of our house, my wife saw one of our fuzzy friends just lounging around, contemplating life I guess, in a tree.

Commonly called a Black Squirrel, Pallas's Squirrel

His (her?), residence is an Indian almond Tree (Chinese: 欖仁樹)

You're on the wrong side of the road...:laugh:

No I'm not. We drive on the right side of the road which is the left side, not the wrong side which is the right side.

We do this so that we can sit on the right side of the car which is of course the right side, instead of the left side of the car which would obviously be the wrong side........

I might start a thread for this......

If you sit in the center of the vehicle (motorcycle), do you drive in the center of the road.

Not the best picture in the world...so sorry it's blurry, but it was taken with my cell phone...   :34_rolling_eyes:

Still, it was such a special little blessing to be greeted by my little friend here when I got to work today. He was working his way through the wires of our gate when I pulled up. Just wish he would have been a little more patient and posed better for me. :laugh:

Okay...somebody help me here. This is the first time I've ever seen one of these little critters, and I don't have a clue what it is. I just think it looks neat. :laugh:  It was crawling around on our carport this morning...

Nothing I've ever played with.

Must be a Yankee (U.S. usage of the word, not Commonwealth usage) bug.

Apparently, it's one of those Yankees that planned to move to Florida but somehow ended up in Georgia...:laugh:

    • KJV ME!

      Now it is time for me to step out of my shell and let go... I AM STRICT KJV!... In scripture God said he would preserve his word... Well did he or didn't he?... If there is every translation under the sun, then he didn't but I KNOW HE DID!... The preserved word of God called the KJV is for the English people has been around for over 400 years and what is interesting to me, is the KJV was translated in 1611 and the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620... Coincidence?... A new book the preserved KJV word of God for the New World... So take that you KJV naysayers... I have been reading, studying and digging through the KJV for over 50 years... My belief is 100% Christ and scripture says so... Glad to be here and its time to take these shackles off!   
      John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

      Praise God I found such a powerhouse of the outpouring of His Spirit and unapologetic in regards of the defense of the KJV Bible. When I became a Christian back in 1984, I was told to get & read the KJV. It's been my choice all these years.

      Also, the land in Egypt wasn't land God gave them it was land Joseph through Pharaoh gave them. God gave them Canaan.
