I always have peanuts or pecans in my jean’s pockets when I’m around my cabin because I feed my ground squirrels and chipmunks so often. Today I looked up from my computer and saw Half Tail walking across the clothesline. He was checking my pockets! Since my animals come to me and I can teach them things … it gave me this idea ….
