The jive-ass X-mas lights of our next door neighbor, Beverly. And then there's our jive-ass squirrel...Squirrels get docile in the winter. They don't hibernate, per se, but instead they do what humans do: They get depressed and carbo-load during the long winter months. From time to time they'll emerge from their nest to return a Sopranos DVD to the video store or to get the mail. Sometimes they just stare out at the ice world of Iowa, thinking of how to end that short story they've been working on/obsessing over.
