And last October, another friend and family from Germany were astonished at the gray squirrels that grace our lives with their scampers. The few squirrels in their northern region are red. Every time they saw one of ours, they pointed and yelled, "Squirrel!," which, for me, became somewhat daunting the 500th time. I adjusted, however. I managed. And in short order, I found myself doing the same. However, I have to note that yelling "forsythia" or "squirrel" makes for a very loud automobile.
