Hello

What a nice introduction to yourself. No, cognition doesn’t come as standard here either. Brains not necessarily in great working order all the time. But we get by!

Yes, you are doing it all correctly (ie the forum!) Welcome to our leaky boat.

That picture makes me think of you Mick! A little bit interested in what’s going on, a tad squirrel brained, mostly interested in food and other wild animals!

Sue

there is no way I am as smart or ripped as these fluffy tailed rodents.

Tyson here and his two cousins have unscrewed to top off the “squirrel proof” feeder and chewed through 5 inches of plastic before diving in head first to the sunflower seeds.

I am quite happy to share a bit with this sort of wildlife but get a bit snippy when they scare the intended recipients away. On Christmas eve I got an early pressie when the Siskins and Redpolls returned.



Mick

Sorry, I seem to have subverted this post, I do not need much of an excuse to get my piccies out. M

I’m sorry, I like Tyson and his cousin. I especially like his four fingers in the first picture.

I know it’s bad and wrong to steal someone else’s thread, but I do love your photos!

Hi,
Welcome to the site that no one wants to join.

I’m stuck inside too. Lots on the laptop, read my kindle, chat to friends and get out when I can.

Yes humour always helps.
Take care.

Hi Islandgal - as you’re discovering, these threads can float off in all sorts of directions!

Guilty as charged, so sorry.
Mick

Me too. I can’t help encouraging thread theft. Especially by squirrels.

Oops.

I think I may have been wrong about Tyson and his relatives. More dangerous than I’d thought!!

Sue

Flippin’ heck, makes my thugs sound like the provisional wing of the W.I

Many years ago my mum tried to hand feed a squirrel, which promptly bit her thumb to the bone.

See, violent criminals!! I’m sorry that I denigrated your personal attackers. The poor birdies don’t stand a chance against rampaging gangsters.

Vicious squirrel mafia.

I found this from the year of my birth, it seems that some squirrels were OK

I was in the Tufty club… exlains a lot

the top picture looks like a rodent style Tom Cruise

I stole it!

Tufty was a red squirrel :chipmunk: from the 1950s. I suspect they were different before being invaded and overrun by todays grey rodent hoodlums. Let’s not forget the 1950s was a different, more innocent world. (Remember the knitted swimsuits?)

Not withstanding the red anti-hero squirrel in my purloined photo. (Who reminds me more of Keanu Reeves in The Matrix than Tom Cruises!) He was of course a renegade red squirrel. More of an armed raider, just like Tyson and the other grey villains.

Sue
