Racing through the yard helter-skelter, the pair
of bushy tails approached the tasty prize awaiting.
Black bushy tail arrived first and brown bushy tail
had to circle and wait its turn. I do not recall seeing
a black bushy tail in the yard. Against the
orange pumpkin, the black bushy tail was quite
festive looking. Diving into the substantial hole
in the pumpkin, it reappeared with tasty morsels.
Fascinating to watch the ravenous creature
repeatedly dive into the pumpkin. Suddenly
it scampered to a tree perch to clean its fur
much like a cat does. Next it stretched out
its tail the length of its body much like a
Daniel Boone cap and seemingly took a nap
in this position for a few minutes. Odd.
Whoa! As if on cue, brown bushy tail took
its turn headfirst into the pumpkin hole. It too
scampered up the tree to a branch, cleaned itself
and paused to rest with its fur stole extending
the length of its body. Odd behavior.
Perhaps the pumpkin is in the process of
fermentation which caused the strange
behavior. Snow has covered the lawn now.
The bushy tails are in retreat and taking a long
nap. What grand entertainment I have!
