Oh M D, something truly wonderful has occurred chez Greysquirrel …… something almost tooooooo special for words!Nigel spotted it first ……
…… almost disbelieving his own eyes ….. but then, despite being almost apoplectic with excitement, he managed to called Darrell and I ….. and yes, we can confirm that Castle Greysquirrel has now got it’s very own grey squirrel!
We are sooooooooo proud! It was a very, very robustly emotional moment for all of us.We apologise for our very blurred pictures but Darrell’s hands were shaking so much and he had to put his zoom on as far as it would go as the said squirrel was right down at the bottom of the garden.
We let Nigel choose the name for him …… as he saw him first ….. but we all agreed it was the most appropriate imaginable ….. our squirrel shall henceforth be known as Adam ….. because Prince Adam (Aka He-Man) lived in Castle Greyskull, which was the original name of our house, until a year or so back when our greatest fan, Jan the Fan started to refer to it as Castle Greysquirrel and in the end we decided to adopt it too ……. so there is a spooky Derek Acorah sort of poetry and synchronicity to the tale …….
