May i have 12 and 15 please?

My constant, unrelenting battle with the squirrels breaking my squirrel-proof bird feeders has caused me to detest the little varmints. Maybe reading two cute squirrel stories will soften my hard heart.

Lovely sections as well! Sections 31, 33 and 35 are PL OK.

Would you please change the outro on section 32 from "end of poem" to "end of chapter 32"?

Thank you!

Oh wonderful! I'm so glad! I was thinking to do 39, but am perplexed by the use of the word "tidy". Not that it matters, but it's always a bonus to understand what I'm reading!

Here are my squirrelly contributions, Chapters 12 and 15. I do SO love squirrels now, I've traded my BB gun for a nice, soft indoor bed for them, with a tiny cupboard for nuts, seeds, cracked corn, and ... oh, I dunno -- almond milk. :twisted:
