Hangin’ ‘Round

The grey squirrel was clinging grimly on to the peanut feeder as it swirled in the wind, looking for all the world as though it were trying to escape from the squirrel’s unwanted advances. I was reminded of this song by the late, great Lou Reed.

You’re still doing things that I gave up years ago
Hangin’ round
Hangin’ round, that’s all you’re doing baby

Lou Reed
