Yes, we are doing battle with Varmints around here...the red squirrels and the bigger black ones have discovered our volunteer sunflower. They try to climb them...and then the stems break, then they go and cut them down and steal the whole flower-head and rip them up to get at the seeds...and they are nort even 'mature' yet. Phooey.
So Petcretary got out the red pepper flakes and another big container of cayenne pepper-powder and sprinkled those all over the whole area where our bird feeders are...(Sorry Tabbies...), Not sure it helps very much, but then she saw those rascals at it again. Two black ones and a red one. The red dude was too quick to catch on camera, and the black one was a wee bit more obliging.
|Checking out the possibilities of getting at some sunflower seeds...you can see the stems of those II already accessed...and you can see red pepper flakes, too...|
|I brought along a helper...|
|Having a taste...Eeuw! Hot pepper, ugh!|
|Off to find better things elsewhere|
|I climbed the big walnut tree to peruse the situatioin...|
|And hopped onto the convenient shelf/seating arrangement...|
|From where I thought I would let that lady who was spying on me to take a selfie of me so you can see how suave I am! See my l o n g whiskers?? Best not to mess with me though, see those claws/weapons?? |
This past Tuesday at the Tuesday Teaser, there was a new school-building, and classroom. Whoopee!! Petcretary was fast fingered and got there pronto, along with two others to be the first to check out the whole affair! Very nice she said:)
INGRID, JANET and SHARON!WOW! I was one of THREE First Commenters on the Teaser of July 27, 2021! Goodie for me!
|Gosh, I DID guess the Teaser correctly on July 27, 2021 BUT I was NOT FIRST!|
Here is the card we made for Marv, to help him with the party spirit...and he sent everyone a badge to tell others that they did attend! (At June and Miss Ann's Blog.)
Us pups are taking a holiday from Selfies, since we have to clear the yard of those pesky varmints...Benji diligently dug a trench to rid us of some mole...sigh...and they had to both tell a two footed intruder to go away...though *she* said to be quiet and sent us in the house...it was a big truck with a shed in a box...one of these days it will be a DIY project...oh-oh! See ya soon!
Squirrel is in the Sunday Selfies Blog-hop! We are thankful that Sawyer is doing well...and he and his family; The Kitties Blue; are the hosts each week of this fun feature. Join in too if you wish!
