He always arrives looking rather svelte.

Those little cheeks look a bit different by the time he leaves.

  8. Haha – I love this! It totally reminds me of my husband and his roommate in college. They had a gerbil they named Jawpacker because of the amount of cheerios he’d pack away.

  16. Lisa, he’s adorable! I have loved chipmunks since childhood and it always makes me happy to see one. Your photos are great! They are normally darting about so fast that it’s hard to “catch” them.

  17. what a darling little critter … we used to have a squirrel who visited our very urban concrete back ‘yard’ … things were good till she tried to rip through the screen .. had to stop feeding here because we were worried not just what damage she could do but that she might have fleas or worse and infect the cats!

  23. What adorable pictures of ‘cheeks’! Chipmunks are the cheekiest (in the other meaning of the word!) and most entertaining little creatures! I discovered them for the first time while visiting a National Park in Canada some years ago. I couldn’t get enough of them. Your photos express perfectly the personality of this little fellow!

  24. I love him Lisa. You got some great photos because chipmunks don’t usually hang around for a photo shot. I also love your story.

    • Yes, and no. 🙂
      When I moved from self-hosted, back to WordPress, I did change it to asketchbookofdays.com, however, the “old” URL (lisa-gordon.com) will still get you here, because I redirected it.
      If you were following via a reader, and still want to follow, you may have to re-subscribe using asketchbookofdays.com.
      Thank you for your visit!! xo.
