The competition is on!!

A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn.  ~Author Unknown

I know you all remember my buddy mr. squirrel, well he has one the battle....but mind you, not the war!!  

For now we will say Squirrel 1, Shelllady 0!!  

He has completely destroyed the finch socks by eating holes in them, I repeatedly darned them until the 'darn' things aren't worth fixing!! So I took down that feeder, and we truly miss our gold finches!! 

Now he has figured out how to get to the new (#3) bird feeder!!  I happened to be looking out today and decided to grab my camera to film him.....just in case....this is what I saw!!

So Mr. Squirrel, you have given me a challenge....tomorrow is another day, and we will regroup and I have a new plan!!  

Stay tuned!!




  1. That sneaky lil booger! There has to be a way to keep him away from the birdseed! Good luck!

  2. Hi there! I'm your Newest Follower!

    I love beachy/coastal blogs - nice to meet you!

    I am LOL-ing about your squirrel "wars" --- every time I remulch, a squirrel goes "nuts" and starts digging holes and burying nuts in it. It looks crazy the next day - like someone went in with a little drill and dug neat holes with nuts in them ...

    Best Wishes on your "road to retirement"!
