October Observations

The festive holiday season begins with October!  It's Squirrel Awareness Month!

I'm very aware of squirrels, both the four-and two-legged varieties.  They all abound here in southeast Louisiana.  Many of them hold office, many of them hoard nuts.  Take your pick.

It's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Schedule those mammograms! 

(As an aside, one of the post-game guests on the local radio broadcast of today's Saints VICTORY was trying to drum up some support for the Komen Race For the Cure and referred to October as "Breast Awareness Month.")

I gotta ask: Just in October?


  1. I gotta ask: Just in October?

    I'm gonna do an MC Hammer on that... as in I ain't gonna touch dis!

  2. Moogie, I have well chronicled my hatred of tree rats.


    I actually heard yesterday the same thing during the NFL stuff..."Breast Awareness Month." Astoundingly, the same thing popped in my head!

    Great minds, and all...

  3. That would be my choice, too, Buck!

    Maybe we should give an entry exam or something to folks who will be entrusted with a microphone.

    Do you suppose squirrels are aware of breasts, Andy?

  4. I doubt it, Moogie. But, I wish we could find some way to give them ALL breast cancer, and enjoy it as they experience a slow, painful death.

    Ooooohhhh...that was really un-Christian...maybe I shouldn't publish that.

    What the heck!
