Somethings a Foot..

As September roll on thru... I'm wonderin about all the little things in Life..Like them Squirrell in the back yard..well front yard too..Awe heck they all over... like wittle rats with Fuzzy tails..Was watch on squirrely character  scamper along ...way up there on the cable/telephone wire.. Ya know the big black wire Yepp one on the bottom ...under them high voltage ones........Any way he scampin along up there ..and I say out Loud ...Hi mister or misses Squirrel..Well he/she stops...lays out flat on that wire... and I giggle cause I think he's tryin to hide...Actually he aint even paid me no  never mind.....Nope... see up there he  can see down..all overand scamperin towards the back yard is another squirrell ... I call this one chester.. Yepp..See some these squirrels have a white chest..Cute  wittle buggers they are.......So this one up there on the cable wire.. watches.. one on the ground stops...Now as I watch I realise someting a foot.. and I'm missin it..Yepp... totally missin it... cause I see these wittle critters sittin there them Tails are way busy...and my old brain.. it's slow ya know.. it remembers as a Kid  all them Squirrels...Yepp there goes them tails again.. ole bashful up on that wire  creeps along till it jumpsinto this pine tree.. and it acts like it's tryin to be sneaky... run around to the backsidestops watches the squirrel on the ground........Squirrel on the ground..sits  up and that Tail starts twitchin makin question marks and suchother squirrel head down the tree trunk  and just flatten itself out on the tree like a ragg..yepp chester squirrel acts...like it don't be payin no never mind..All the time those Tails doin this and that...like some kind of sigh laungauge...Then it dawns on me ... I can't hear....those two squirrels less than 20 feet away ...They chatterin to high heaven.. and when they chatter at one another them Tails  Well them Tails do a wittle Dance.. it's like folks talkin with their hands.......you know the type.. tie some folks hands together they couldn't even talk...Yepp same way with these squirrels... Most them in Texas where I grew up..they make an awful lot of  Noise... yepp and those bushy tails doin a Dance..Dang rite cute watch Squirrels talk....this brown squirrel and chester they got along fine...Some time those little critters they kinda go Nutz on one another.. and all Hail breaks loose.......Drives my doggy wild Plum even..when couple them squirrels get all ralled up at one another..they be chasein each other round and round up on tree down another.. bad mouthin one another scamperin around the doggy... just outta reach her leash..so ya got doggy barkin.. squirrels fussin.....some time fur flyin...Awe looky that one goin home a sore looser... Yepp  minus some tail feathers too........You folks that which can still hear... Ya'll oughtta stop for a while and hear the world around Ya...Cause you never know what could come along and take that one special thing away..I remember the buzz of the skitters in my ear.. pestery fly....birds singin in them pecan trees...the sound of a gentle breeze blowin thru the leaves...the chatter of the squirrels...crickets at dusk... bulfrog callin...All those sounds I took for granted as A child... Are  forever GONE... I live in a silent World now...I can no longer understand music.. sounds i do hear don't register like normal folk... it's disorted and Odd.........So if you folks aint got nothin to do....i suggest ya visit the world around you and just LISTENListen to Life... soak in the wonderful sounds around you....You never know someday.... somewhere..those memories will be all you have..and You will be so glad you have those memories of those sounds...No I haven't lost my mind.... it be sad day when I do.... cause then I'll Loose everyting.......take care of your hearing... or you might wind up not knowin what ya missin...
