This morning...

This morning I saw a black squirrel and a flying tree. And was unable to get photos of either *sigh*.

The squirrel was on the railing outside our kitchen door as a I was about to leave for work and it hopped off and disappeared in the way-too-growthy undergrowth of "volunteer" plants nearby. It looked like this. Though we're not in western Massachusetts, it's apparently known for grey squirrels to have black offspring.

The flying tree was down in Woburn along Rt. 38 and not far before 128. What I'd first noticed was the enormous crane sticking up behind the Mobil station. Then a pine tree flew up out of the neighboring yard, straight up, and then swung around nearly over the road I was travelling on. I did not stop driving, but I'll admit I ducked. Utterly reflex action. And the flying pine tree looked almost exactly like the photo on this page.

And those were the highlights of my day. :-)

That flying tree sounds completely freaky, and the very-like photo **looked** completely freaky.

Thanks for the photo - I was imagining the tree in Superman position while flying, not in its life-position.
