Between the squirrels and the rabbits, I like the rabbits better. The physical therapist came again today. She had some new balance exercises for me. They were a little past scary, but that's mostly because I have a severe reluctance to fall down. It's not the fall that unnerves me. It's trying to get back up. Still, I will practice as best as I can. So far, they don't take up that much time.

    Falls terrify me. Tripped last winter, hit my head on the edge of the utility sink, and suffered a skull fracture. The resulting black eye was an extra bonus. Ugh! I practice balance exercises, but I've always been able to trip over my own feet and that's gotten worse as I've aged. Keep practicing.

    Stay safe. Be well. emoticon

    My neighbor feeds squirrels. His yard is full of them. He has sit up feeders and actually they are quite entertaining when the hand from the feeder. On my other side the neighbor has a bird feeder. One day I saw a squirrel going at the bird feeder. It took him a while to get to the top of the feeder and hang until he reached the little food holes. I let him eat a little then I shooed him away and told him to go into the other yard. Funny that was the only squirrel I have seen at the bird feeder. I am glad that you seem to be doing better. I agree with you about the falling. I think about it every day and try to wear sensible shoes and think about where I am walking. I hope your exercises are successful.

    Hopefully these exercises will improve your balance so you don't need to worry much about getting back up because you won't fall down to begin with!
