The Story of the Squirrels


Friday, February 26, 2010


There were five houses of religion in a small Florida town:
The Presbyterian Church,
The Baptist Church,
The Methodist Church,
The Catholic Church and
The Jewish Synagogue...

Each church and Synagogue was overrun with pesky squirrels.

One day, the Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and consideration they determined that the squirrels were pre-destined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's divine will.

In The BAPTIST CHURCH thesquirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it.

The squirrels escaped somehow and there were twice as many there the next week.

The Methodist Church got togetherand decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.


But......The Catholic Church came up with the best and most effective solution..They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church.Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him, called circumcision and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.

    That almost makes up for your status report of seeing pussywillows in bloom on your walk. We're still in the throes of winter here. Although it made it to 40F yesterday, it got clear up to 24F today...
