Florida Morning Walks

A Journal of Thoughts

Sammy the Squirrel

Sammy the squirrel has moved to every neighborhood in Florida I have ever lived.  I first noticed him around 1977 when my second son was born.    I didn’t pay much attention back then.  We had such a busy life so who had time to talk to the squirrel who would drop by for Fritos every time we were outside.

In 1980 we moved to Lake Mary and Sammy must have jumped into the moving van because it was not long before we spotted him jumping from tree to tree in our back yard.

Every night I would get a book to read to my son.  One night he pushed the book aside and said, “No, tell me about Sammy.”  I started a story about Sammy moving at the same time we did.  Sometimes he would get lost on his way because he would get distracted and follow some little boys who started skipping school. Of course Sammy got in trouble but someone would come along and help.

This continued for months and I told basically the same story every night but would add something new because I was making it up as I went.  One night my 5 year old son suddenly stopped me in the middle of getting started and said, “No Mom, that is not how the story goes.”  He then proceeded to tell me Sammy’s story – about him getting lost in the woods and his mother and Dad came and found him about the time it was getting dark.

I have been in this neighborhood for five years and not long ago I was on my morning walk when I saw this squirrel watching me.  I believe it was Sammy’s Grandsquirrel and I am sharing his picture with you. He brings a smile to my face every time I see him because it brings back wonderful memories.  It is time to give him a name – maybe the little ones next door already know his name.

  1. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

  4. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.

  6. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Thanks a lot!

  15. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  16. Have you ever considered publishing an e-book or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would value
    your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

  17. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one
    and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam
    responses? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
    you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.
