Nature


A Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Squirrel


 I couldn't help but add this old childhood song we used to sing to the tune of Clemmentine. This is a roadtrip song and we'd drive the adults nuts on a school bus trip.

Did you sing these verses or a slightly different version?
 
Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut last night,
Last night I found a peanut,
Found a peanut last night.

Cracked it open, cracked it open,

Cracked it open last night,
Last night I cracked it open,
Cracked it open last night.

 
It was rotten, it was rotten,
It was rotten last night,
Last night it was rotten,
It was rotten last night.

Ate it anyway, ate it anyway,
Ate it anyway last night,
Last night I ate it anyway,
Ate it anyway last night.

Got a tummy ache, got a tummy ache,
Got a tummy ache last night,
Last night I got a tummy ache,
Got a tummy ache last night.

Called the doctor, called the doctor,
Called the doctor last night,
Last night I called the doctor,
Called the doctor last night.

 
Pumped my stomach, pumped my stomach,
Pumped my stomach last night,
Last night they pumped my stomach, 
Pumped my stomach last night.

Died anyway, died anyway,

Died anyway last night,
Last night I died anyway,
Died anyway last night.

Went to heaven, went to heaven,

Went to heaven last night,
Last night I went to heaven,
Went to heaven last night.

Wouldn't take me, wouldn't take me,
Wouldn't take me last night,
Last night they wouldn't take me,
Wouldn't take me last night.



Sent me back down, sent me back down,
Sent me back down last night,
Last night they sent me back down, 
Sent me back down last night.
 
 
Felt better, felt better,Felt better last night,
Last night I felt better, 
Felt better last night.


Found a peanut, found a peanut.....



Thanks for again humoring me!


This little sweetie lives on a Five Star Golf Resort Course where friends of ours' have a timeshare. We are lucky they let us hang around them and invited us to visit on our way to Florida!


All of my photos on this post are shot with my digital camera, a Nikon P-90, downloaded and posted without alteration of any kind. Sorry for the blurred second last one, but it is an action shot....

Love, love, love your shots of the cute little gray squirrel, great captures. He is a sweetie.

I worked as a Field Executive and Camp Director for a Girl Scout Council for a number of years long ago. I have heard, and vividly remember, that song. I liked it better than the Fried Ham song.

Fried ham, fried ham, cheese and baloney,
After macaroni, you add mustard, pickles and ketchup,
Then you add some more fried ham, fried ham, fried ham.
Next verse, same as the first, ____________, whole lot worse.

At the blank, add the "change" you'd like to do in the next verse, e.g. "underwater", "a whole lot louder", "with a French accent", etc.

Fun post. Have a great week,
Judy

Now that was lots of fun. I do remember that song, although it was a little different but I don't actually remember how. And of course I've been chasing squirrels off my porch and eating my bird seed long enough to appreciate the wily little guys! Great pictures.

That's the version we used to sing--although I never would have remembered all the words and verses!
Love the squirrel photos!
