It's that time of year again folks. The weather is cooling off, the oaks are a'droppin' acorns, and the annual squirrel Wanderung has begun.
The little troopers are not only looking for nuts, but young squirrels are starting to disperse, and along the way they encounter highways and American commuters. That's where some of them get the Firestone press.
It's fatal, but it's one of the realities of squirreldom.
If you find this a little sad, listen to this masterpiece by Ray Stevens, and you'll feel better.
