There is was again! I saw it as I was returning from my coffee run. The furry little scoundrel was sitting by the side of the road at the top of the hill, preparing to run out into my path.
I doggedly checked all my options for squirrel avoidance - rear view mirror, side mirror, front window, sides, ditch...ready for anything.
And then I got right up to it. It froze in place and I breathed a sigh of relief.
That's when I saw it stayed frozen.
It was a rock.
