Time for a laugh!

Amidst all of the mayhem of the fires, now the floods and crypto in tandem.

This took place, as the young squirrels have not met Harry the Egyptian goose yet.

Oh yes, things have been very tough here of late as we have mountains of damages to climb and people to help now in the midst of cold and rain. In case you don't know, it is now winter in South Africa and our temperatures are steadily dropping.
It is at times like this that we don't sit with our hands in our hair, as action is needed.
Of course laughter is always good medicine in tight spots. (For me at least)

Look below how the squirrel eyes the new strange chicken.

Hello, he said, I am a squirrel and what are you?

But the stranger didn't answer.

So the squirrel decided to meet eye to eye.

All of a sudden sheer pandemonium, as the stranger doesn't like company.

Get, get, get, Harry shouted and the squirrel scattered hahaha.

Now before I am stoned, I know that the post is good for the #featheredfriends community, or the #amazingnature community, but I wanted to get the laugh into our #silverbloggers community. I will cross post it into either of the other communities as they are also our friends.
We have a few young squirrels here that do not know Harry and Sally (the geese) as they have arrived for the winter breeding season and it's going to be fun watching the other youngsters meeting the geese for the first time.
For now I was happy to get this as it takes one's mind off the dismal situations that we find ourselves in.

I really hope that you have enjoyed the post.

And That's All Friends.

Hi @papilloncharity.
Their behavior is so cute,
The swan objected to sharing its food with the sneaking squirrels, didn't it?

Maybe they don't know each other yet, because the squirrels rarely come. Or is this squirrel coming for the first time? lol

Hi @justbabybee

Cute indeed and no the swan will never share its food with the squirrels. The swan is the boss.

They don't know each other as the squirrels were born in this season and they all live in our garden.

Hi Mick, greetings to you my old friend and hope that all is well with you.
Are you back full time or still only occasionally?

Yes, the youngsters will soon learn that it is painful to argue with Harry.

Harry sees himself as the king of the garden and all of the others are mere subjects.

Very cold indeed, but so welcome after the huge fire that we had.

Hahaha, Harry did attack me once last year, but it was because Sally was cornered with her babies and I tried to get them all out.

Oh yes, I have many stories about our help to humans that backfired, but we have always accepted and taken in our stride.

Joan @joanstewart is right, I think! Once the pecking orderis settled, life will get better.

Hi, Stephen! I know life is dismal in terms of what we are used to. My prayers to you and Marion for strength and safety.

I think everyone will love this moment! 😀

Hi Lady Denise, if only as Harry will always find a challenge even up in the air with the crows. He is a very determined ruler of his property.

Dismal is the word and lately we feel to go and hide ourselves somewhere. Thing have now take a turn for the worse with the floods, as if the huge fire has not caused enough damage and the winter cold is settling in.

Thank you so much for your prayers my dear friend and I think by now you know that you are also on our prayer list.

I hope that everyone will, but it's not up to us if they like the moment or not. With the Hive price down, responses are low as usual.
Such is life.

This is why we need to keep pushing forward as much as we can, without causing any negatives to our own health.

What a downward spiral this has been. The reason is not clear, but, I don't have that kind of vision.

Thank you for the always uplifting messages! ❤️

That is exactly the problem, our own health and I am getting less mobile every day that passes.
Back problems, leg problems and arteries that need to be stented again. So it is a spine fusion, a knee replacement and a stenting situation.
But not now as we are too busy and I just carry on best as I can.

A mad year thus far and things will be getting worse before they get any better. To crown it all we have severe political infighting here and we don't know how things are going to turn out.

Sorry to bring you some bad news, but we have a God that is in charge and all is well.

!PIZZA and !LUV ❤️❤️❤️

The little squirrels will learn that Harry is the boss, but hopefully not the painful way 😉

Lovely post and seeing Harry shouting at the little squirrel, that was looking at the nut, made me smile on a day that began easy and has become busy and stressful later 😂

Oh yes, they will all learn that it can be painful to argue with Harry.

A day that became busy and stressful later sounds like the norm to me 😉

Cheers and thanks.

I hope that Harry doesn't teach them too hard that he's the boss.

Since quite a while it's the norm for me that the day is stressful from the morning on, so I thought that the day would stay as quiet as it in the morning was - wrong thought 🤣 !LOLZ

I saw Harry once pinching a Squirrel with his beak and the squirrel squealed, but thankfully it hasn't happened again 😆

Funny how our thoughts and expectations can turn into the exact opposite. Most always at our with us at the losing end of things 🤣 !LOLZ

Cheers and thanks.

Ouch, that must have hurt, but such a pain will stick in the squirrels mind and it will not get close to Harry or another goose again 😂 ! LOLZ

I often try to expect the opposite and surprisingly in such cases it often comes true 😎

Oh yeah, the squirrel now has a mighty respect for Harry and it disappears in seconds whenever Harry lands in the garden 😁 !LOLZ

Hahaha, the best way as then there are less surprises 😆

Cheers and thanks.

Two of nature's biggest assholes-- at least from a #Canadian perspective-- battling for bragging rights. 😲 My money's on the goose! 🦆

The South African perspective, at least in our view is different my friend.
Your money is secure on the goose as he is the ruler 😂
