The Reanimater part V- At Least You Have A Face!  
oh happy day! it looks like i recovered enough of Squirrel (actually, i think i'll call him Squirrel II now...for obvious reasons..) to put him back into decent shape. i have him in the lab and have decided the best way to proceed will be to crochet him in slip stitch with a hook big enough to handle some of those big chunks of matted fur. so far so good. i think i have located the proper parts. i started with his head and luckily both eyes and some brain matter ended up in the right place! i can see that Squirrel II was re-born under a lucky star. today is his birth day...what is it...May 2nd? he's a Taurus! here is your birthday horoscope for today Squirrel II:

You may feel like things don't appear to be coming together fast enough in your life, Taurus, but in reality you are making progress. Not everything that happens is visible. People are working on your behalf without you even knowing it. Trust that all is perfect and life is progressing exactly the way it should.

see Squirrel II!! it's all coming together! i have a really good feeling about this......

Squirrel and CNCH
Hey Lexi!
Nice meeting you today at the Doubletree Hotel, Kansas Yarn something or whatever. Had a very inspiring time watching you spin and talking to you - can't wait until November, so excited about the Camp!!!
Squirrel is coming along nicely, I think, and actually resembles one, who would have thought...
