I got a good chuckle from Mark's comment about Alvin the chipmunk!

I have developed an intense dislike for chipmunks. We have been renovating an old house that had been unlived in for several years, and the chipmunks had moved in and made it theirs during that time. They defended their home turf with aggression and fury, they are not friendly little beasts when they are defending territory. It took three years with the live trap to finally defeat them and win our turf. They still make attempts, but so far we have been able to keep them from reentering. So your picture and comment hit home!
