The squirrel hadn't cleaned out a dryer vent. It was making off with a torn up piece of an old bath towel from somebody's patio. I only got one photo before the squirrel jumped onto the shed roof.
Friends were just discussing special blankies, teddy bears, and other lovie attachments Saturday at Texas Discovery Garden. I was remembering when the Woolly Mammoth lost "The Special Bunny" at the Texas State Fair. I backtracked all over the blazing fairgrounds including the garden that is now Texas Discovery Garden in search of "The Special Bunny". Turned out it was stuffed in a backpack, and never really lost. It would really be lost later in Washington, D.C., on another blazing day.
You wouldn't think a squirrel would need a blankie when it is this hot. You never know when you might need a little comfort, though.
