Drone Strikes and Squirrels.....

Well, looks like our military took out some more garbage. Others have commented on it, but one thing I found interesting were the pictures used of the vermin in various publications.

Fellow blogger Fredd used this picture in his story:



While the always PC and left-leaning Wikipedia used this one:



Quite a difference, isn't it? Who's to say which photo is more accurate representing the persona of this former person? I'm told even Satan can smile and be quite charming when it suits his purpose.....Guess this guy will get to find out, right before he gets handed his shovel to stoke the fires of Hell for all eternity.

But then we're not supposed to judge others.

On the home front, I never knew squirrels ate crab apples. These two are owners of the two nests up in a neighbors tree, and we see them almost daily. They also enjoy getting the 'spinner' seeds from the maple tree in the front yard, doing all manner of acrobatics to get at the large clumps of seeds out on some of the more flexible branches.



Rock on, squirrels, and thanks for getting those crab apples off the tree for us. At least they won't land on the ground, ferment, and give little Pebbles The Wonder Dog WMD-grade gas!

Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Squirrels: they need trees to flourish, simply cut down all trees within your dominion, no more squirrels. Yes, sometimes my brain is just too dang big for words.

    2. @Fredd - Live and let live. They don't bother me, and they're fun to watch.

      @Brig - These are tree squirrels.

  4. Ah, the ever lovable tree rats. At my last house they chewed through the eaves on the second story and got into the attic making quite a mess. Where I live now in the Texas Hill Country, we have them but they do have a lot more trees to live in. All they do is taunt our 9 month old puppy.

    1. When we had the roof replaced we had the roofing crew look for ingress/egress points and they didn't find any. We have so many trees here I think the squirrels are happier in the trees.

      Only bad things I've heard about are the raccoons. They killed most of a neighbors chickens, and got into the garage of the neighbor next to them where the dogs kept them cornered. Made quite a racket they tell me.....

  5. When I saw the post title, I thought you were droning your squirrels.

    We have them in the two big trees, maple and oak. They get fat on acorns. The hawks get fat on squirrels. The fat cat looks at the fat squirrels and says, "get into my belly" - as if she'd know what do with one. It's the circle of nature.

    1. RATS! Blogger ate my reply.....AGAIN.

      These don't appear to be terrorist squirrels, so we leave them be.

      Last night I heard several owls hooting, cooing, and making other owl noises. Since the squirrels don't come out at night, I was wondering if Mr. and Mrs. Owl were teaching their little ones to hunt. We have loads of "mice" around here, and I shagged a couple out of the garage the other day, so go get 'em Owls!

  6. According to Islam, everything happens by God's will. Therefore, these deaths were pre-ordained... Trump was merely the means God used.
