Oh Gail, I am sure you have photos to go along. Please don’t forget to tag me. Had to laugh about your Mom’s stockings. I tamed chipmunks that way, too. I’d sit on the deck and hold out nuts and they’d dash over to get them. Always had to give them in increments of 3 because they’d shove one in each cheek and then carry the last one in their little mouths. It was so adorable.
