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

Runners-up:

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
