Cool Hand Luke

For many months now we've enjoyed relatively little mischief from most wretched sciurus carolinensis, and that's meant I have done very little harassing of these scamps.  That's also meant that some of the rats are figuring out that they have a free hand to show up and gorge.  One in particular has developed a calm personality even when I am present and moving about.  It's graduated from one of the Chumleys to "Cool Hand Luke."  Imagine a squirrel barely fazed by a car moving within a few feet!  To be sure, other animals remain a bit twitchy, but I suspect this cool behavior will spread and soon I may see a small army of squirrels highly tolerant of The Man.  That could be interesting.
