Splat and Run

There are just so many books I want to read, and there's never quite enough time to read them all.  I downloaded Julia Sweeney's audiobook If It's Not One Thing, It's Your Mother.  Ricky and Lucy were in full support of me listening today, so I put on the headphones, and we were out the door for our hour long morning walk.
Put on the headphones and let's go!
I have to add, my head phones are really nice.  My sweet brother who always gives me great gifts gave them to me last Christmas.  They're those noise-cancelling type headphones.  Because of that, I could barely hear anything besides Julia's voice in my ear.

All of the sudden, I felt something falling.  I thought it was a short branch and a big clump of leaves and pecans from one of the many self-pruning trees in my neighborhood.  SPLAT.

As soon as I looked down to see what splatted, it ran off.  It wasn't a tree branch.  It was a squirrel.  And part of it brushed against my shoulder/head as it fell.

I've heard if bird poop falls on you it's good luck.  I figure if a squirrel falls on you, that must be something really special.

It's going to be a great day!

Goodness! You probably saved that little squirrel's life by breaking his fall. I think you should definitely go buy a lottery ticket. :o)
