“I think I will do some discreet human watching. The patrons will think I am just a stuffed mouse”.
Hard to stay focussed on the crossword puzzle, even if it is Will Shortz’ NY Times version, when there is a PUMPKIN SPICE SCONE on the table!!
Being a mouse in a human world has its challenges. Charley has overcome the coffee cup challenge, but the water glass is another matter.
Some of the squirrels in the park are very people-friendly. If there is the slimmest chance of soliciting food from you, they will allow you to get really close. The oddest squirrel experience: A squirrel near Sabin School in Portland ran down the side of a maple tree and up to my grandson, who was walking next to me, and jumped on his leg, then ran off in haste. I have no idea what that squirrel was thinking, but it was really odd, this random squirrel attack on a toddler!
