I want you all to meet someone. This is Chippy, the chipmunk that lives under my air conditioner. He’s there just about every morning when I leave for work, his little head poking out from under the air conditioner, or he’s sometimes perched on the cord like it’s a swing.
We had a showdown today after I got home from work. I usually don’t see him when I come home from work because it’s too hot and he’s hiding somewhere, but today the weather was strangely cool for this time of year and well, Chippy was there. I had enough time while our gazes were locked to grab my phone out of my bag, and take a few shots. By a few I mean close to twenty. He was totally beneath it except for his little nose at first, but then he was brave enough to pop out completely.
I get such a kick out of seeing this chipmunk. He, or she, is always teasing Chester in front of our bedroom window. I think it knows he can’t get it, so it just runs back and forth in front of the window. Chester doesn’t move a muscle, but I can tell he wants to hunt it.
Chippy the chipmunk. I know, real generic, but it’s fitting. He or she is just too cute. So, that was the highlight of my day! Happy fourth of July tomorrow everyone (in the US) or wherever you might be!
