It didn't take long for the black squirrels to breach my latest hanging bird feeder set-up so in utter frustration, I went out, took the bird feeder down, and brought it into the house. Hopped into the Jeep and headed for the Porter's Hill Wild Bird Seed Co. in Bayfield. Twenty minutes later I was home again with what I hope is finally a 'squirrel proof' birdfeeder!! When it comes to squirrels, all bets are off though. Hauled out my small step ladder and went about the business of hanging up the new feeder. So far, it's been up over a day and a half, and no squirrels on it yet. What!! How can that be!! The feeder is made by Brome and ours is the Squirrel Solution 150 model. And by golly, this company is even based in Canada too:)) Knowlton Quebec to be exact.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( Matt's dad picked him up from school one afternoon. Knowing the parts for the school play were supposed to be posted today, he asked his son if he got a part. Matt enthusiastically announced that he'd gotten a part. "I play a man who's been married for twenty years." "That's great, son. Keep up the good work and before you know it they'll be giving you a speaking part."
To maintain an open mind is extremely difficult but it is the only way to search for ultimate knowledge.
