Dave!Thanks to a... well, let's say "adventurous"... couple in the hotel room next door, I got a late start getting to sleep. And even then it was only because of my HEAROS brand ear plugs. Now that's true love.

Fortunately, factors then decided to converge in my favor. First I found out I didn't need to be into work as early as expected. Then the hotel took pity on me and let me have a late check-out time (which was the least they could do, given the shitty bed they stuck me with). And then a colleague was late getting me some materials I needed to work on. So... I actually ended up getting some sleep last night.

That almost never happens!

Good thing too. If I was drowsy from lack of sleep, I would have ran over a very confused squirrel that wandered onto the street during my backroads drive through Georgia this afternoon...

Dug says SQUIRREL!!

As it were, I was able to stop in time... after leaving half the tread from my rental cars tires on the pavement.

    The animal rights activists thank you *snort*. Because even if your tired had blown, and you crashed the car, and ended up in the hospital, at least the squirrel was alive and well.
    Hope things get better.

  2. Ha ha! I was able to “train” the squirrels around here to let Nemo, the 3 legged Pomeranian, chase them up trees by then offering them chips or crackers as a reward after Nemo was back inside the house. They learned to equate the funny 3 legged dog with food! Your squirrel must have been hung over or something!
