Once upon a time (late 1990’s) in a land far, far away (North Carolina) we had a huge tree in our yard where squirrels lived. They were all named Sparky and were the closest thing we had to pets, besides The Boys.
We left that base in 1998, starting our whirlwind tour of the world. Within two years we had cats and the days of low maintenance pets were over.
Here’s to you, Sparky, wherever you are, bless your furry little heart!
