Had he been out hiking and noticing the stripes on small critters such as the Golden Mantle Squirrel? (Not a chipmunk. The Golden Mantle Squirrel is larger and does not have stripes on his cheeks, though this one certainly has a supply of nuts in his cheeks.)
Or maybe he had stopped by the zoo, which is always a good place to find some stripey critters.
Sleepy stripey critters.
Did he find some smaller stripey critters?
My bet is that he did not have someone like Esther show up fresh from a manicure with her stripey fingernails!
Headbangers move to a theme each week. There are five of us now, linked in my sidebar so you can see what stripes the others have found.
This just in--introducing our newest Headbanger--Richard. He will be joining the competition with next weeks theme.
