Nellie & I work very hard at catching squirrels, but we have very little luck. We chase a lot of them up trees, but that’s about it. Grandpa noticed me sitting at the base of a tree watching the little red squirrel I had sent to higher ground & I think he felt sorry for me. I had been sitting patiently waiting for the squirrel to come back down for quite a long time. Grandpa brought out a little gun to help me out. I used to be really afraid of those, but perhaps I’ve gained some wisdom with age & have realized that the gun can bring some nice rewards. So I anxiously waited by Grandpa’s side. Nels, she immediately ran to Gram’s side for protection. I guess she’s not old enough to be wise yet! Grandpa made one shot & took out the branch that the little red bugger was perched on & THUMP, down he came! I was faster than green grass through a goose & I got my squirrel! Nels pretended she didn’t care, but I know she was jealous! But then Gram hollered & made me let him go! Up the tree he ran again!
