Foliage Fall Out
Fall is my favorite time of year, and as much as I love living in Texas I miss the beauty of Wisconsin in the Fall. Note the squirrel in today's cartoon. His winter food gathering effort just became more complicated. The squirrels in Wisconsin are huge compared to the ones here in Texas. Some squirrels are close to the size of your average house cat! It's the Darwin Effect at work -- only the strong survive the winters up North. My family did our part to help, and we put out food for the squirrels each Fall. We named all the "regulars" and could hand feed some of them.
