Feb. 17’s winner for the photo featuring squirrels:
Should we be playing cards around a table like those dogs always do? Don’t ask me. I’m just a squirrel trying to get a nut. — Tony Ficke, Homer Glen
Rocky, thanks to you being so bad at playing cards, I’ve squirreled away enough winnings to finally take a trip South for the winter. — EJ Oahueke, Worth
Squire Earl the Squirrel, it’s final. We stay in this foreclosed house until the darn snow is gone. — Carl F. Rollberg, Calumet Park
Hey, Buster, I think I have the winning hand. I’ll take those nuts you have stashed away. — Gerri Gates, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community
Best of the Rest:
Even the squirrels are staying home and hunkering down during this endless winter. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn
These card games have been a lot more fun ever since they legalized marijuana. — Margarita Lara, Justice
Do you have any bubble soap? I need to refill my pipe. — Mike Shizas, Burbank
Sit really still. The painter is painting our portrait. Then he will do it in felt and sell it at a gasoline station. — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park
Life can be a crapshoot. Just look at the hand we were dealt. What do you think the odds are on getting across the street alive? — Nancy C. Smith-Slee, Palos Heights
All the snow and cold has these two suffering from cabin fever and starting to get a little squirrelly. — Ray Anzelmo, Evergreen Park
When will this winter end so we could go outside? — Richard Jarema, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community
We’re going to be thrown out of this fine restaurant if we don’t stop smoking. — John Morrissey, Tinley Park
