down the Bruins 76 to 69.

Ruth Stewart builds miniature sets,
places them outside and then waits for
her curious, furry neighbor to strike
the perfect pose.

Each year she releases a five-card
set featuring the little guy.

The squirrel does everything from
snowmobiling to using a computer.

Stewart and her late husband used
to build the tiny sets together until
he passed away last year.


With the support of her family she
decided to continue the projects.

So what's in the works for next
