A Snowbank Greeting!

My brother in MN emailed me this photo. His neighbors took advantage of the recent snow storm to use the snowbanks for a Christmas greeting! Creative neighbors indeed! It made me smile!

And how about this squirrel proof feeder! Dave snapped this photo in the backyard the other day. It's not photoshopped. The squirrel was actually inside the cage! In all fairness it is a red squirrel. Much smaller than the gray squirrel the cage was designed to keep away from the bird seed. That little guy has been busy and can empty the bird seed in no time.

Hope your day is full of smiles!
