    Used To Have A Pet Squirrel

    Not so much a pet, but a rescued young squirrel. I called him 'Skillet' while I was caring for him. I had him for about a week, and once he recovered I gave him to my girlfriend's mom, who had actually raised a few of them. Crazy family. Anyway, I miss him. And to this day I...
