High fives for squirrels!

A friend just forwarded me this photograph. I'm not sure where it was taken or where it is from, but once I laid my eyes on it, I knew exactly where it was going - RIGHT ONTO THIS BLOG.

Admit it: You want to High-Five him right back, don't you? (Actually it looks more like a HIGH-FOUR with a vestigal thumb but let's not nit-pick here, ok?)

Now what could he be high-fiving about? My guess is, THE ECONOMY.
While the rest of us struggle and worry about taxes, property values, our pensions and the future of our respective industries in which we have built careers, this fellow has spent his life dutifully squirreling away his assets for the future. I think I want to hire him as my financial planner. Don't you?

High-five, little fellow!!

Ah, ha ha ha! What a great photo! Well, it's either a high five OR he's indicating to a buddy about the number of big nuts are in the tree above him. That mouth agape suggests some big stuff going on, don't you think? Maybe there's a truckload of peanut-butter jars that just broke on the road behind his pal? Or perhaps he's just come upon 5 filbert trees?

Anyway, he sure is a happy little guy!
