Sounds good, Eric. Mind if I lead off? I loved them before GM bought them out.

So tonight's story continues with the snow shovel being dragged into the road where it is smashed by a still groggy neighbor on the way to work in the morning and the hammer is carried up into a tree and gets dropped on one of your tractors setting in the back lot. :ROFL

All the while thinking how absent minded his new food provider friend must be to leave all these tools laying outside in the yard. :ROFL

I think their ability to figure out things to accomplish their objective is right up there with working dogs. Elderly housebound neighbor that as a kid I used to put out trash for lived next to a creek. **** would open up her steel trash cans, cut through the plastic liner bag and pull out anything that smelled good enough yet to eat. I could barely get those old bent up lids pulled off the cans myself at times. I even tried adding bricks and cement blocks to the lids. It would still get those cans pried open somehow. Most of the time he did not even have to tip the can over to do it! I think I ended up tying heavy gauge clothesline wire around the top through the lid and side handles to keep him out of them.

This morning I got him! I put the hummingbird feeder UNDER those buckets and put hammer on top. Then shovel, he didn't find it. The stupid Squirrels found other one and messed it up AND hopped on the wind chime for some reason and broke it?? ARGH!

Mix some hot sauce in vegetable oil and paint a layer on your feeders near the openings. Mix Cheyenne pepper flakes in you dry bird feeders too. Birds don't have a sense of smell so hot stuff doesn't bother them but it sure give the ***** and squirrels something to think about.
Just be careful when you put the flakes in the dry feeders, one good sudden breeze and you could be in trouble.
