Why do squirrels make me want to wage war on them ?

Okay this morning has really torn it for me . I go to take my lil dog out to do her business and what do I notice but the second bird feeder I have put up in the front tree the lid has bee chewed threw . Yes chewed threw , a gapping hole and teeth marks on the other side of the lid as well . As if one hole was not enough for them to make . well I managed to get some duct tape and tape it up to cover the hole and guess what if they eat through it again then they will ingest some duct tape and maybe the taste will not be so nice and they will leave it alone once and for all .I am at my wits end repairing bird feeders and also replacing sun flowers that they have managed to eat the tops off . I mean come on squirrels don't the neighbors have some fresh juicy tomatoes you can eat ? No I wont get a bb gun and shoot them as some might suggest is the way to go . I never in my life have harmed an animal and I'm not about to start . Even if it means having to replace the bird feeder again and again that is just what I will have to do . I'm just writing this so I can get this off my nerves but I'm wondering if any of you have had wild animals do destruction such as to my bird feeder if so please leave a comment and have a spirit filled day and may the Good Lord watch over you and yours .

have you ever wondered who these people were and what were they like ?

My dear readers , do you ever look at black and white photos and wonder who these people were , what did they do for a living ? I often look at these pictures and make up stories about them . My grandmother used to do that with old black and white photos she found , Now I do that too .. I guess I must think it is fun . Tell me what story could you come up with for this photo . okay dear readers that is food for thought and I will leave you with that . May God watch over you and yours take care all .

6 days really ? shame on someone right ?

Well while doing my daily routine of internet surfing I decided to go and look and see where my pkg was from something I had gotten off of amazon and it is supposed to be delivered tomorrow (wed) after being on the road for 6 days already in the usa . Tomorrow will make it 7 days yes , 7 days from seattle Washington . Now does amazon not realize that I can get a pkg from the uk to here in less than 7 days ? maybe not or maybe they just don't care . I am going to be considering making fewer purchases from amazon if this lag in shipping continues and will look for other avenues .I know some of my readers feel the same way and if you do then please leave a comment and let me know who you are disappointed with this week , the name of a business please and as always no personal grudges please .I know husbands can be aggravating but let us leave that for another time and space . Kudos dear readers . May God watch over you and yours .

another photo I found while looking ....

Here is a photo I found while looking for another thing in the closet . I was looking at this photo and it brought a subject to mind . How there is no date on this photo and I m always wondering why people were not more conscious of writing dates on photos way back when so they could look back and say hey remember when ? also add the peoples names that were in the photo please because one day we are all going to join the Lord in Heaven and some of us left behind wont know who was in the picture nor their names . Leave a legacy for your kids and write the names of their grandparents , great aunts and uncles etc so the kids at least know somewhat of where they came from .....If anyone has any idea of how old this photograph might be please let me know because there is no date on it nor the peoples names . I found this photo in a junk pile in a thrift store with a lot more photos all black and whites and I thought wow how awesome .Okay readers have an awesome day or evening , May the Good Lord watch over you and yours . take care .

A promise I made to a friend

Now it took me a  few days to remember (geeze I'm getting old LOL) that I had promised to post a picture when I found it . This was a conversation I had with my good friend Limner over at Oh just write me and if you have not checked out her blog yet please do so , she is a true artist and an all around awesome woman a real powerhouse mind you .... Okay back to what I was trying to do before I got off track . This is a picture I promised to post for her because it looked very much like one she had posted earlier and I told her I would post it when I found it and low and behold I had to look for something else in the closet and came across the album that this was in . So without further adieu here is the photo and enjoy . May the Good Lord watch over you and yours my dear readers .
