IT WAS A beautiful clear spring day, so I went outside to photograph the new gutter on the back of the house. It’s the one that we had to buy to replace the storm-damaged gutter that fell down last autumn.
I WAS TRYING to decide if the new gutter, which came in Desert Sand, was going to blend, as is, with the rest of the house trim. Or, if it was going to have to be painted SW Agreeable Gray to match the house trim.
BUT AS I was standing there snapping photos I was startled when I noticed that on top of the screened-in porch roof, under the new gutter, was Fuzzy the Squirrel watching me.
SEEING AS HE was already up there and in a good place to look around, I asked him what he thought I should do about my color dilemma.
FUZZY, WHO IS always happy to be included in our plans, carefully perused the situation then confirmed what I was hoping.
“LADY, YOU’D BE crazy to hire someone to climb up here and paint this new gutter. I can barely see a difference between the two colors.…
IN FACT, I think that your monies would be better spent on buying a few more tomato plants for the deck + maybe a nut tree or two for the backyard. Much better investments. In my humble squirrel-y opinion.”
