    BREAK TIME from ugly politics!!!

    I woke up between 4am and 5am to tinkle, :D and looked out the kitchen window, and this is what i saw, hanging on our makeshift bird feeder...

    The pictures are blurry because my camera does not take pictures well in the dark, and because some pics were also shot through the screen in the window, but mostly because it was so damn dark, the sun rose about a half hour after i first saw it.

    He watched me taking the pics, and couldn't give a hoot that i was there...he was a very big sucker, very tall when standing on its hind legs...

    A raccoon entered our backyard a few weeks ago and didn't see the dogs. I presented his mangled corpse with a Darwin award.

    lol....I had something similar happen. Hazel, the most predatory of my dogs, killed a bunny about a week before Easter. My backyard is fenced with 5 foot chainlink, and any critter that enters a yard inhabited by 6 dogs has GOT to be mentally deficient this is definately evolution in action. I'm sitting in the living room reading and hubby goes to let the dogs in. I hear this plaintive wail come from the mudroom - Hooooooooooppppppppeeeee you better come look at this. Hazel is standing there, 4 square and poking out of her mouth are two bunny ears. That is all that is visable. Oh. Goodie. I tell Hazel in a cheerful voice "give" and hold out my hand. She looks at me with an obvious question in her eyes: "are you effing kidding me?". She has the prize. No way is she giving it up. Her jaws are locked in a death grip around it. So, I beat a strategic retreat to the cookie jar: diplomacy in action. I hold up a handful of cookies and look at her. She looks at me. Thinks hard for a second (you can see the wheels turning - cookies or bunny). Doesn't take long. She drops the bunny (head) and dives for the cookies. I, meanwhile, get rid of the evidence. She murdered the Easter Bunny ...never did find the rest of it...not sure I wanted to.....

    LOL! (Well, not really...)

    That sounds all too familiar! A family of possums decided to enter our yard one time and I was picking up dead possums for a week.
