Black Walnut

More snow piled up last night and this morning.
When I went for my walk I took along some birdseed.
Scattered it on top of the snow for them.
I reached my favorite resting spot .
Sitting on my tree stump was a black walnut.
We squirrels love black walnuts as much as we love acorns.
Black walnuts are much harder to open than any other nut.
It took me most of the day chewing on the hard shell to open it.
The walnut inside was sure tasty.
I chewed the shell up until I got every crumb from the nut eaten.
I was tired out from all the chewing on that shell.
I decided to crawl into the log and take a nap.
On second thought maybe I’ll watch the birds instead.
