We didn’t know it at the time but Cliff and I had our own “Discovery Channel” long before television arrived. One special program was watching the chipmunks who ran with their tails straight up in the air.

For months during the summer and fall, their cheek pouches were used to carry home the groceries of seeds to store in the ground tunnels for the winter. In the spring, any uneaten buried seeds would often start to grow.

During the past few months, I have been squirreling away queries. I hope by publishing them today, they will be food for the winter family tree project or help someone’s family tree start to grow in the spring.
