Holiday pounds affect more than people

I don't know about you, but I've definitely increased in poundage over the past month or two, thanks to the tasty treats and temptations of the season.

People aren't the only ones putting on pounds this time of year, though. Proof of such an assertion: the squirrel of mixed-race — apparently the result of hanky panky between a regular (brown) squirrel and a (black) Abert's squirrel — I spotted outside my window the other day.

Chubby little fella, wouldn't ya say!?

Now if only I could shed the extra pounds as quickly as he surely will once the holidays are over!

Today's question:

What tasty treat most tempts you this time of year?
