Anyway, this morning during my usual Sunday church going and then shopping, I noticed an excess of road kill. Mostly squirrels I believe. I wouldn't have thought anything of it until I logged into facebook and have a handfull of other friends and family members complaining about the same thing. There isn't anything in the news about it. Probably too soon. We've had mild weather for a good 2 weeks now. Nothing out of the ordinary. I'm just wondering what it could be??? And also if anyone else in other cities are noticing it.

Let me tell you... Squirrels are frickin idiots... just yesterday I saw a fat gray squirrel in the road... I slowed down and as I got closer it started... as it looked to me... dancing... it was kinda funny to watch... it didnt know which way to go... towards my tires or off the road to safety... i slowed down even more and rolled down my window and screamed at it... cos I'm a crazy Hillbilly that talks to animals... it decided it didnt want to commit suicide and ran off the road... that happens a lot...
...didnt feel right to run it over... might have to can it later on down the road if The SHTF... if it's heart still beats... no need in preserving it
...also let me retract that frickin idiot commit... if i was a squirrel I would have probably already been ran over... I can only imagine what they think a car is.... Kinda like ancient man and aliens.... describing space ships to chariots...
Let us always keep a watchful eye out for our animal friends... never know when you might HAVE to eat them to survive... no use in killing them all just yet
