Squirrel Cousins

Have been shamefully amiss in not mentioning the native Prairie squirrel, the gopher. The gopher is officially known as 'Richardson's Ground Squirrel', and is sleek with limpid dark eyes and a nose for news. Hats off to this oft misunderstood creature.

Am unprepared to tell shameful gopher stories from my youth at this juncture, but will fess up at a later date.
