    Something besides Kelly Clarkson talk, PLEASE.

      Well never mind. I would have liked a little KC talk instead of more riot coverage. He can’t say anything we haven’t already heard ad nauseum. Blah blah blah.

      I’ll see you guys later (but not Wednesday when the PMT nitwits take over).

      Yeah, I don’t understand what KSR thinks they can tell us that we aren’t already seeing all over the news and everywhere else. This isn’t a stick to sports thing – just find something else to talk about.

      Agree about KC. As far as him having comments about the current situation, I’d think him irresponsible if he ignored it, because of his position.

      I always watch the local news at night, on a little bit of a DVR delay, and just fast forward through the stuff I don’t care about seeing. I don’t want to see riots, but I can only handle so much of watching a crowd walk down the street. I hit the wall last night and only watched weather coverage.

      I think, at this point, any time you bring in somebody new (especially a coach), it’s something that’s going to come up.

      I’m fine with some of KC’s songs, but I don’t need to hear a lot of KC talk. And she annoys me when she talks.

    Pssssst! I’m whispering. I am not going to listen to those donkeys on Wed, but also am not going to say so then, because it might disappoint those weirdos that show up here once a year to call me stupid for not liking them. There. Got that out of my system early.

      On Wednesday I might work on setting something up where I can show my hawk pictures. Unless I do it before then.
      I broke down and ordered a set of clip-on lenses for my phone. Not the easiest thing to do from the distance of my deck to the tree with the nest, but I got a couple of okay shots.

    This is long, but fun. The guy that built glitter bombs for porch pirates took on squirrels at the bird feeder.

      So America Ninja Warrior: Squirrel Edition. That would be fun to watch, but there’s simpler and better ways to squirrel proof those. Just have to be smarter than a squirrel. 😉

      We got invaded by raccoons a couple of years ago. Went out one night and there were SIX trash pandas on the bird feeder pole. The squirrel baffle was no problem whatsoever for them to climb over, so we got a raccoon baffle and that solved the problem immediately.

      I used to feed stray cats. Raccoons found that food and offered to fight me when I tried to chase them off with a broom.

      No squirrels at my house ever. Trees too young I assume.

      Always had a fun hunting rivalry with my Dad; held my own hunting deer, elk, razorbacks, and quail; but, never bagged a turkey. I always told him he was lucky; and, he always said, “you have to be smarter than the turkey”. Thanks, Dad.
      Adding insult to this was the fact that my wife bagged two turkeys with her car; one was the day before Thanksgiving, but we had already bought a turkey, ha ha.

      That’s funny, rg. “Gotta be smarter than ____” is one of my favorite smartass comments, and I have lots of those. 🙂

      I live in a semi-rural area, so I get the whole assortment of critters and varmints. Several years ago, we had a trash panda coming into the garage through the pet door to help himself to the bowl of cat food. We would often come home at night, hit the door opener, and see him making his escape in the headlights. One night the door opened to see Mr Trash Panda and our Siamese cat nose to nose, sizing each other up. Fortunately, when we started leaving the porch light turned on it was enough to deter him, surprisingly.

      I just got done battling a couple of whistle pigs that had decided to excavate about 3 square yards of gravel from under my pole barn. I wouldn’t necessarily mind having them around, because they are kind of cute, but this couple dug out enough gravel that I was afraid that the 7000 lbs of boat sitting on the pad above them was going to settle into the hole like the Corvettes in Bowling Green several years ago. They now have a nice view of the lake next to the LaGrange Reformatory. 🙂

      rg, I used to tease a friend of mine who was an avid turkey hunter about having to outsmart them. 🙂

      Clutch, a buddy of mine was dealing with raccoons getting into his barn and eating all the dog food, so he put out a trap. He kept catching them, and he actually started to paint their tails with orange paint before releasing them to make sure it wasn’t the same one coming back. I think he got to about 13 of them before he just gave up.

      Oh, I almost forgot about my encounter with a 6 ft long rat snake in my neighbor’s garage this weekend. So, he comes over carrying a rake to where we were all sitting outside, and mentions that he has a snake on his trash can inside the garage. I know it’s not venomous or anything, but damn, that sucker was large and trying its best to imitate a rattle snake. Long story short, I grab a snow shovel and help the neighbor guide it out of the garage. But the other neighbor across the street turns out to be a low-key badass. While we’re all trying to figure out how to get this beast back out to the woods, he just walks up and snatches it by the throat and carries it out there. He doesn’t look scary at all, but I’m legitimately a little intimidated by this dude now.

      Just checking back in…you knew I had to. Haha.

      I am a softie when it comes to animals, but we don’t feed stray cats since I learned years ago all you do is make them proliferate and make the problem worse. I’m a fan of the programs that catch feral cats and fix and release them. It’s not a perfect solution, but if I knew the stray cats I see in the area had been fixed, I’d be more likely to feed them. I know they’re not though because some of them were little kitties not long ago when we first saw them.

      One time my neighbor knocked on the door because she wanted my husband, who wasn’t there, to help with a “snake”. So I used a snow shovel to move a garter snake for her. That’s just as brave, right?

    • Realme
      11:02 am June 8, 2020 Permalink

      Yeah Chris, that stray feeding got out of control and I never did that again.

      Realme, I thought so when I grabbed the snow shovel, but I learned otherwise.

      11:04 am June 8, 2020 Permalink

      Clutch, I’m far from a badass, but I used to catch them all the time. I was a bit of a “snake geek” back in elementary school. Had a couple of rat snakes that I caught. I have caught dozens of them and been bitten a number of times. It really doesn’t hurt that bad, their teeth are extremely small – dog and cat bites are usually much worse. Of course, you have to educate yourself to know that you are dealing with a non-venomous variety. I’m a member of a FB group that is devoted to identifying Kentucky native snakes, and it’s a great resource.

      I did google rat snakes, and found a Youtube video of this teenager who goes around and picks them up like pets and tells all about them. He did have a couple of bloody bite marks on his arm, but it didn’t seem to be a big deal. I would have just never thought to put my hands on one.

      A ground hog is also known as a whistle pig? I did not know that either.

      About raccoons: we used to watch those “Animal Cops” shows, and the one set in Miami had a guy on there who specialized in getting gators and other critters (like raccoons) off people’s properties and out of there houses. One lady called him and said she had started feeding 1 raccoon and it wasn’t long before he apparently told all his friends and her back porch was overrun. He looked out her sliding glass door and yeah, the porch was covered, so he would up trapping a bunch and moving them away.

      rg, that reminds me of one of my crazy redneck buddies from long ago. We nicknamed Ronnie “Buck” because he spent most of his life out in the woods hunting for that elusive “big buck”. One night I was at a mutual friend’s house (another good ol’ boy), and the phone rang and it was Buck on the line saying “guess what I have in my trunk”? Of course we knew him well enough to say “A deer, what else?” Sure enough, a deer had ran out in front of him, and he showed up a few minutes later with the deceased deer in the trunk of his Monte Carlo. He had already bagged two that year the conventional way, so this was the third for him. And that spring, one of the Derby horses was names “Triple Buck”. Guess what horse Ronnie put all his money on? (and no, it didn’t even place.)

      Oh, and one time a raccoon got in a house, so when he showed up to get it, he opened the bedroom door and the thing had totally trashed the room. He said he actually would rather deal with a gator than an angry raccoon holed up in in a house. He then put on some kevlar gloves that looked like industrial dish gloves and said their teeth sometimes still puncture those things. He caught the rascal and needless to say it was VERY angry, but he got it into a cage, shut the door, held up his hands and said “They held up!”
