La Nina. That usually means colder and wetter here in the northern states, this fall and winter.

Those buggers have been getting at my bird feeder for a couple of years.  I used to like them until they got so damned aggressive.  Now I spray them with water whenever they act up, but they're too dumb to learn from the experience.

 

Unfortunately, mine don't do photography or play the guitar.  They just annoy me.  😒

I had that problem too. Â My daughter turned me on to this "Flaming Squirrel" stuff. Â It worked pretty well for me.

@Carolyn Marie I have that problem too.  I think once they get used to having seed they get bold.  

 

I have a dome piece on the pole.  The squirrels haven't been able to get around it.

We have one that just ate through the husk of a pumpkin and then proceeded to eat all of the meat from the inside.  When he was finished, our pumpkin looked like a cyclops with one big eye.  The squirrel has been back to the scene of the crime every day to take more and more of the pumpkin away.  No doubt he is stocking up for a long-cold winter.

Shay, ours wasn't that talented.  Just a single hole initially.  I kept thinking he should have been more creative.

OMG, thank you all for the squirrel pics and stories!  Jandi, I was laughing out loud with that video.  Absolutely amazing and charming antics and I was so impressed with Mark Rober's skills and ingenuity.

 

My feeder also has a dome, and I took away most the squirrel's launch points, but they now launch from a tree about 6 ft. away, directly onto the platform base.  I've also tried commercial chemical sprays, but there are too many approaches to the back yard and they just jump over or around where I put the stuff.  So its basically get rid of the feeder or put up with the squirrels.  :dunno:   :damm:

I've moved my feeder several times as the nearby trees have grown.  I think I have it in a permanent spot now.  Its too far to jump too!

I have one hanging down from the roof on parachute cord.  I can lower it with a pulley to fill it.  It is by the kitchen window and quite a ways from the ground.  That Flaming Squirrel stuff discouraged the squirrels.  But one night I went into the kitchen and there was a raccoon hanging on the screen trying to get it.  It has to be over 10ft from the ground.  All I can figure is it climbed the conduit for the power and managed to get over to the window somehow.

Sheesh.

Where there is a will ... besides there being as lawyer (LOL) - there be squirrels....

But - when all is said - it's at least fun to laugh at them

      That's really awesome @Jackie C.. I'm so glad that your family made that exception. Very worth while and she will always be thankful for you all because of that.  💗

      Sure, but only when I went off HRT for surgery. Hot flashes and night sweats. Hot flashes are bad, but manageable. My night sweats are miserable. Like somebody dumped a bucket of water on the bed.   Hugs!

      How about hot flashes?  Anybody get suddenly hot and cranky only to have it go away after a while?  I’ve been having that problem for a little while now.     Liz, when I’m not wearing a bra, I show.  When I am wearing a bra, mine are actually too big in the cup and I put a pad in so nothing shows.   I wish I could get a bra with cups of the right size.   Willow

      We had a really nice (and small) gathering yesterday. We stretched the rules a little. My niece has a friend that would have otherwise spent the holiday alone. Her parents are ... not great ... and she was feeling very alone. She burst into tears when she got back to her car because of how nice we were to her. My emotions are mixed. I'm happy we got to make her day better, but I feel terrible that she was feeling so low that our little act of human compassion brought her to tears. She's an adult and I want to adopt her.   Sure, there was food and we put together a puzzle after dinner but making someone else's day better is what I'm going to treasure.   Hugs!

      It sounds like everyone had a great day yesterday. I'm really happy to have read so many wonderful posts. I had my kids and we spent the day stuffing our faces and watching movies or playing video games. They enjoyed the day I think. I'm always sad when they have to leave but, that is exactly why I make sure I am right here and available to them when they are here. I am sad that I have to miss half of their time since my divorce. In a lot of ways I guess I feel lucky I get that. I am thankful for finding the strength to break free of the harshness I was experiencing. I made coffee this morning and have been cooking bacon in the oven. I will be doing all of my holiday shopping online this year. I hope to avoid store as much as possible for the next few weeks. My ex and her family don't care about the virus and had a gathering of over 15 people yesterday and are doing it again today. I can't control that but, I disagree with such blatant disregard of reality in the name of tradition. At the same time, I do understand how difficult life is for people that are not used to being alone.

      If only it took US about three seconds of screen time and a grindy noise to get where we need to be...   Oh well. I'm still dressed for the gym in my "If you want a perfect girl, go buy a Barbie" tank (gym time pays off, I can ROCK a tank) and my boot-cut jeans with the neat stitching pattern on the sides.   Hugs!

      Welcome Layla!   Yup, going crazy, wearing Google down, being so confused that the brain stops knowing up from down, ... me too. As with many others here, working with a gender therapist was my mind's salvation. It would have overcooked otherwise.   This place has been a wonderful support since I joined. I hope it's as helpful to you

      Looking at the photo you've posted I don't understand why you would be clocked.  As to your body not accepting the hormone you take, please find a doctor that will run some blood tests.  As we age our bodies do change and you might have another issue that needs to be addressed.  All my best to you.   Jani

      I'm sorry to hear this happened @Rosalina101011.  That should never be done, especially in a group at a TDOR.
