Squirrel

This squirrel was an unexpected fan on the No. 1 doubles court during the Richmond boys tennis regional finals Oct. 7. Evidently, he was looking for nuts. He wasn’t wearing a mask, probably because he was eating nuts while he was looking to add to his winter’s supply of them.

I’m really happy that I’m back to work as sports editor of this newspaper even though I was paid more money while I was drawing unemployment compensation during my five-month furlough.

The sole reason I’m back (and have stayed back since Sept. 8) is because high school fall sports came back after all spring sports and summer activities were canceled due to COVID-19.
