So I’m standing at the kitchen sink overlooking the back 40 and I see a very plump squirrel scampering across the yard. Hmmmm that's pretty round for a squirrel… so I put on my glasses and look again. That’s no squirrel, it’s a miniature groundhog and there’s another one and another one and hold on a minute.

Sure enough after careful observation we have a new family in the neighborhood. Chuckie’s bachelor days are over and his girlfriend and at least 5 babies have moved into the woodpile.
