Outside my Kitchen Window: A Peeping Squirrel.

In the kitchen, I turned to see this mog staring at me.
Can you spot the squirrel?

For minutes, he just sat in that spot, just looking. I wondered how long, he'd been there before I saw him...her?

Naturally, I joined in the staring contest. It was so weird & funny! I got a hunch that this squirrel was indeed trying to be inconspicuous. It didn't move, nor break eye contact, until I called Husband.
I called him & he grabbed the camera.

...Awww...so innocent...look at those little arms & tiny paws...

We see you, you little creep! LOL

This got me thinking about the origins of "Peeping Tom"
Why "Tom"? Who was that guy???...

Haha. Looks like someone was up to no good! Such a cutie.
... I would like to know who "Tom" is as well. I'm sure it wasn't Halle Berry's current stalker.

Jhan: LOL
Did a bit of research...and as is turns out, "Tom" was a tailor who looked upon the nakedness of noblewoman, who was riding through the streets in protest to her husbands taxation on the poor people of Coventry. Tom's peeping was unlawful, and it's written that he was either struck blind or dead.

Dang! LOL
