STOP OVER AT LA

I had a day in LA to kill for my return flight home. During this time I visited the California Scence Center and Natural History Museum and on my return to the hotel, was entertained by a Squirrel.

The LA Squirrel Incident


Whilst in LA I was tormented and harrassed by this small, furry local who insisted on evicting me from the table and searching my bag. He then climbed back in his tree. I only just escaped alive with my snickers bars intact!

Wheres my drink? Who took my drink? I want my drink!

I'm so thirsty I could leap on you and bite through your jugular

Hunting...

Still hunting...

Shimmy wiggle, giggle fluff

slurp slurp gulp burp!

Pull the table closer

There, thats better

Shake the table

Whats in here...

The seat was still warm from my backside!

I know kung fu!
