Top of the mornin to you all... Aw , I am sure santa will come see ya , your too good hearted for him not. Anyway, it is sad when you have to wake up and grab your 9mm... Crazy days and crazy nights, as they say.. I am about ready to shoot and ask for info later..

The dawn is breaking here and already the squirrels and sneaking out of the trees to pillage my bird feeders. The little tree rats have been almost living in my bradford pears eating the tiny fruits. Back in the old days they would be too afraid of being mated with some dumplings.

I wonder if he still has any of that good cheese ? I have not had that since the neighbor traded mama some of it in exchange for a frying chicken.

This is an amazing story. I have seen it all over the news in our area. It's happened in many other places as well, on the same day. I don't know the reason for this, but I do know that there are many speculations. I have yet to hear of a solid fact, scientifically speaking that shows why this is happening. If someone knows, please comment back. I would appreciate it. Thanks.
Where do you live? What happened?

Shoot 'em! Eat 'em! lol Hey I was up just before four but I wouldn't have been good company - I was in the bathroom barfing. I think somebody poisoned me yesterday! lol As I was tossing my cookies I was thinking that if I did that very often I would be slim and trim because it sure makes you not even want to think about eating for a looong time!

Home from a great day at work and wonderful night with special people. Sure didn't miss anything here. SOS just a different night.
What a joke this night was on this thread. You can tell the BIRD MOD was off tonight. lol Not 20-30 posts in a row missing...yet. haha. You three stooges keep slandering me and continuing the nasty talk. That is all you can do. None of you know me, what I am, what I look like, where I work, where I retired from, the person that I am except Ancient Wolf and lala (plus OJG, Saragon, Betty and LSD923). So you keep obsessing over me and making up all your stories and slander. Karma will get you when you least expect it. You are a sad bunch with no real life but to camp out on topix threads proving what miserable excuses for human beings you are. Calling you clowns, three Stooges or trolls is really too good for you three idiots and your little cousins that show up. Have fun playing your games. You are hilarious trying to dazzle each other with the most vile comments for your entertainment. I will still post whenever I want, whatever I want, and will never come close to having the number of posts removed that you bunch have. IMPOSTER (unajr) is the one who used my name with the cussing and filthy talk and the MODS removed him for it too. Many already know that, especially the ones I care about on here. The rest can believe what they want and you can continue to spin your slander, it doesn't affect my wonderful life. I will never see or know any of you losers anyway. THANK GOD!

I' be figured out the idiots , maybe their cousins. I usually just respond to a comment which may leave me sounding nuts;) However, I think I realize the decent posters. The mischief makers with their filthy replies about you should hang it up. It's not right , unpleasant and disrespectful. I for one would not want to be associated with them. Their sense of maniacal and unkind humor obstructs any intelligence that might be lurking in those warped minds. I've made comments; they aren't intended to offend or hurt anyone. I'll never be that person.

I watched a little robin fight a blackbird one time. She pecked him right off the branch as he was peeking into her nest. I've never seen birds get after the squirrels though. I'm afraid if those birds lit into your squirrels that way...No more squirrels. That mama bird wasn't intimidated a bit. Ol blackbird didn't get his dinner . LOL.

5am here and I already have coffee and a dog visiting the tree. I better get up and add wood to the stove before he gets back and lays down in my way.
Sounds to me like dog knows a good thing when he's got it;)Not only is he loyal, but smart. Your stories about dog warm my heart. If you don't mind my asking, what breed is dog? He sounds like a hound or shepherd.

There was a song in the day..."Some fools never learn." I imagine that's why the shine is gone.Haha.It appears that way. We have sunlight again this morning. I sure prefer these kind of days over the rainy, cloudy ones. Cold makes the bones ache or so it feels.

I'd check the dates on those cookies. Make sure they haven't expired. Funny, sounds like. it might've been your food.Have a goo day. Drink some peppermint tea or peppermint hard candies. That'll fix the upset stomach;)

Just a mutt that is a cross between a Jack Russell terrier and what ever came down the road. I got him at the Humane Society. He had one day left to live. Nobody wanted him since he had a broken nose and a tooth hanging out the side which makes him look mean, but he isn't. When people ask if he bites, I say "Only if you have a pork chop in your pocket" LOL I wanted him because he is unique and has been a faithful companion for several years.

I've never researched Jack Russel's but heard that they are a smart breed. Well, he's an excellent companion for you. I know they are as peculiar in their ways as we humans. And they talk back at you through their bark, eyes and actions. I think you've made a perfect choice;) Nobody telling you how they want you to be and accepting for who you are. Man and dog. Nice day to you. My dad is big 61 today. Just retired last year. He' s been keeping himself busy cutting wood, building his outbuilding and fixing a stove for a family member. You all enjoy the day;) It looks like a nice one.

I think I will live to eat another cookie another day. lol Yeah I hardly ever get sick. I checked with everybody that ate what I ate to see if they were sick. Nobody else so it must have been what I ate and nobody else did - ham! With food poisoning you can go back right at 12 hours to what you ate then and that is what made you sick. About that time yesterday I ate the ham. Peppermint huh? Maybe some of those Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies would work? Not! lol I do believe I will see if I can't find a peppermint. Thanks and you have a good day too.

Here at my house we are over run with snakes. They get in the trees and eat the squirrels! I wouldn't have ever believed that until I saw it.
