    • I often wonder who wrote the book of love.

      And why only four chapters?

        • Happy Easter! Did somebody say chicken? After reading all the posts here, not one good discussion has been started about "peeps" as a candy. They certainly should rate high up on the chart with circus peanuts. Hey! A Bunny!

          • Bunnies?
            We have squirrels here. Nasty ones. They look you straight in the eye and dare you to throw something at them. Flicking their tail and chattering.
            They're kinda scary.
            My dog, Chopper isn't afraid of them. When I say "squirrel", he's ready to go outside and do battle with them.
            Have you ever seen a turtle dove walk around? They walk around in our back yard looking for bird seed and it is so funny. They waddle.

            • I am not sure the difference between a turtle dove, and a regular dove. We have funny looking doves with a ring around their neck. I'm not sure how they walk. I know that ducks amuse me. They are God's original All Terrain Vehicles. They swim, dive, waddle on land, and fly, plus they seem to make good insurance sellers. I have a policy with the duck on the commercials.

              • A little elbow grease and a good cleanser like Zud will get those rings right out.

                Comment


                • I have concluded that the rings are bruises caused by squirrels. It seems the squirrel mafia has some pretty serious ways to deal with birds that enter their territory and try to take from their (food) bank. The squirrels have already strong-armed the rabbits out of the neighborhood. The neighbor's dogs will not even try stop the squirrels. They have caved into the intimidation of the nut hurlers. So far, I have abated all attempts by the mafia at a take over of my house, but I have found reminders under the hood of my beloved antique Dodge pickup. I have stockpiled ammuntion for the inevitable showdown that will be in the future. I hope we can resolve the turf issue before the big bang reckoning of my ol' 20 gauge.. I am not a violent person, but will defend my home with all possible means.

                  • Just over two days, no other posts.. Somebody please tell me it isn't over. Was it those dang squirrels? Am I the only one left???? I can hear those filthy tree rats barking in the background. I will not let them take me...

                    • This is more of a hiatus. It could last for several days, but then it comes roaring back.

                      All is well.

                          • I think I want a pet duck. I would like to teach it how to dive and find fish, then tell me where the fish are, so I can know where to catch fish. Mallard Fish Finder, nicknamed Hummingbird.. Just a thought. I found out that vienna sausages are actually "tube steaks." Makes sense to me. Most people I have asked, said that the best place to catch fish is usually with a hook in the corner of their mouths.
