A Ghost?

With Halloween coming up, you might think this picture might be of a ghost....

Normally you don't see a white one of these...

It is a white squirrel.  They are rare but seen around here occasionally.  This one has been hanging around our house.  I was really happy to be able to get the picture above.  Normally every time I run and get the camera, he takes off or turns his back on me...lol.

I will miss seeing all of the wildlife around here, like this tiny baby bear, and this bear, these bluebirds, the baby turkeys, fawn and deer.

Some of you have asked we our moving date is.  We are closing in a few days and at this point the moving date is scheduled for Nov. 26.  We are looking forward to being in our own home again.

Hoping all of you are safe and sound after the wrath of Sandy.


  1. Hello Penny!
    Yes, i would miss the "wildlife" too.
    This squirrel is so sweet.
    Wish you well, Miriam

  2. This ghost squirrel is unique and pretty. Maybe he wants to move with you.

  3. I've never seen a white squirrel before! That is so neat. I know you're excited about moving. It will be fun to follow you on this journey.

  4. Oh how cute! I've never seen a white one before:>) We were watching 5 young deer run in circles on the lawn this morning. Round and round they went til we were laughing at their antics. Of course then we had that naughty squirrel munching on the pumpkin. We seem to have plenty of wildlife around here!
    Wow, your moving date is awefully close to Thanksgiving! I hope it doesn't keep you from your turkey dinner.

  5. he's a cute little rascal! I'm glad you got such great pictures of him.


  6. We have brown squirrels here, had black ones in Maryland, but never a white one. He's gorgeous! Hope your move goes smoothly for you.

  7. I've only seen white squirrels on other blogs...have never seen a white squirrel here in IL!

  8. Now that is unique Penny! thanks for sharing.

  9. Hi Penny!
    What a delicate little creature! Is he a hint at what Winter is going to bring us or just a freindly little ghost? He is beautiful and so fluffy.

    I left a comment for you on your other blog...The list of your favorite blogs..but, unfortunately, I don't think it saved. I appreciate your sharing. I was delighted with your beautiful header with all your red highlights. I am so fond of decorating with this vibrant and cheerful color.
    I hope you have a fine remainder of the week.

  10. OOOOps..."Friendly"..not freindly!

  11. He is really quite a handsome fellow. I would miss seeing him, too.

    But, I know that getting moved in and settled in your new home will make up for the loss.

  12. Amazing! I've never seen a white squirrel - in fact I didn't know such a critter existed.


  13. Such a cute little fellow...this will be such a busy month for you! Busy and happy I think.

  14. That is too cute! Glad you were able to get a pic. Good luck with your moving. I know you're excited.

  15. I have never seen a white squirrel before, Penny! That is a sight!

  16. Have you named your little friend? How about Casper? Moby Dick? Ichabod Crane? I think he is adorable, and I'm so glad you got pictures!

  17. He's amazing! I wish we had a little white squirrel friend to come visit us too!

    I'm so excited for you to start on your next adventure. I know it will be so great to be homeowners again. I found I did not care for being a renter at all!

  18. My friend who lives in Brevard says they have lots of white squirrels.

  19. That's something I've never seen.
    Wow - you will be in your own house again before you know it!

  20. What a neat squirrel! I've never seen one before! How lucky you are Penny! Love seeing your pictures of your new home and you move!

  21. Wow Penny, A white squirrel is something I have never seen. I wonder if it is an Albino. He doesn't have pink eyes. He sure is pretty.

    I hope your packing is coming along. Also, I love the idea of a wall fountain.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  22. He's a cutie. We have a squirrel family in our backyard trees. So fun to watch. Can't wait to see what you do with your new home. Congratulations on the closing! Mimi
