Another trip to see the squirrels with Phil & Denise. We weren't disappointed.
Isn't it strange how your ears get hairy when you get old?
I had always thought that "bright-eyed and bushy-tailed" referred to squirrels and thought it must come from Beatrix Potter. When I looked it up some people think it refers to squirrels, others to foxes and others to cats. The phrase probably originated in America in the 19th or early 20th century.
