("Knute Rockne, All American," Pat O'Brien, Ronald Reagan, 1940)
Percy is in an early morning huddle with the rest of the barn squirrels. They've got a playbook and plan a game strategy for the day. "You go left, I'll go right, and you over there make a feint from the front." They decide on blitzes, short runs, and when all else fails, somebody will have to stand their line and, "Win one for the Gipper," whether it means getting hit in the eye with a stream of sticky milk or getting a poke in the ribs. Right now the score is Squirrels: 52, Me: 7. (I know...I've got too much time on my hands.)
There was enough of a breeze yesterday to make the heat almost bearable. Oh goody.
