Today I was driving in my neighborhood, going slowly -- we have lots of kids and animals. A gray squirrel darted out in front of me. He was determined to get to the other side of the street; there may have been something very important there. I gently applied the brakes. He made it across safely, bounding across the road into the neighbor's yard, and scurrying up a tree. It was warm out and he seemed like he was enjoying his day. Fare thee well, my little furry acrobatic friend.
