ah, in theological terms the squirrel is also Buddha
So the Squirrel is standing on it's own head ? ...Just like father William in the poem by Lewis Carroll ...

You are old, father William

"You are old, father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head
Do you think, at your age, it is right?

"In my youth," father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

"You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
And you have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door
Pray what is the reason for that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment one shilling a box
Allow me to sell you a couple?"

"You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

"In my youth," said his fater, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."

"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father. "Don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs.

In other words, if you want to stay out of trouble, keep your mouth shut! :D

tree rat - needs shooting! Nice picture but would be better if it was a red.
You mean like this one?



We don't have any tree rats here and there is a family of reds in the garden. Lovely little machines :mrgreen: :mrgreen: They use our house as another tree and scamper round the walls

That squirrel is definitely NOT dead...and it's just an undead, red tree-rat.. But kinda cute-er than the grey.
