In case you didn't know, I have a grandson. He's 4 now, but at a slightly earlier age he was delighted by squirrels.

For a youngster learning to talk, the "squ" in "squirrel" was hard for him to wrap his tongue and mouth around, so the word came out "Ski Roll."

Thus, in this family every time a squirell is spotted we say, "Look! A Ski Roll!"

Here's a shot taken by his mom Christina of grandson in the tub. A picture like this is bound to embarrass the tar out of him when he gets bigger. But for now, it's cute.

Well, a blog-(and excellent author)-friend of mine Candace put me on to a web site called "Squirrelizer." It allows you to insert a picture of a ground squirrel into any photograph that has a URL address.

Here's the result, using the picture above:

I'm hoping this will further delight my grandson.

I'll let you know.

Just found your blog. Very cute. My mummy is a writer dreaming of being published too. Good fortune to you.

Congratulations. You are upholding a timeworn position. Grandparents are supposed to keep remembrances that will cause some concern to their grandchildren in later life. I can just imagine what Trevor will think when you show him a similar picture of his mother.

And I know you have some. snerx.

Great photos.

I've been embarrassed by my old pictures, now it's Trevor's turn!
