Bone head things we did today

:lol: Morning!

A tip for Christmas decorations: buy the plastic tubs and stack stuff in those - and then those stack up nicely in a closet or a basement area. You can customize the tubs by buying the size that fits in your closet/room/area the best. (You can further organize it, and put foyer things in 1 tub, outdoor things in 1 tub, etc. )
I have over 40 of them in my walk in closet so many that I barely have room for pajama collection. And they're all marked Christmas, not where does it belong Christmas, just Christmas. So helpful SG.

I went outside this morning to leave something for the strays and they're acting weird. There's two that are regulars and today they had this weird looking cat with them. So I put the bowl down and sat down to watch them and the only one eating is the weird cat. Went inside, came back out, sat for a few more minutes, regulars still aren't eating. Ended up being a skunk, like a foot or two away from me. Are we still in the bonehead thread?
Good morning! :lmao:

That's me Dr Dolittle. I would love to see a coyote. Had a fox at the food bowl once. Saw that from the window. And I'm still trying to figure out how to get close enough to a fawn to pet it.
Need to get a wounded rabbit call.. it will bring in the foxes and the coyotes..

We had a Coyote here that had mange.. I wanted to kill it, but the neighbors wouldn't let me. Saw it run through their yard, and hide in the drainpipe under their driveway.

Totally bald the Ugliest, Nastiest thing I've seen..

Sporting goods store? I am so going to do that.

I had no idea that rabbits make noise. I heard a godawful screech outside my front door awhile back. I didn't bother to look but the next morning I had a rabbit body right on the outside of the door and rabbit head a little further away. It was probably one of the strays, gagged the entire time I cleaned it up. Gross.

Tackle Box has them.. They have one where you can pick the wounded animal sound you want.. and another that has the sound and twirls around a fake tail to make it look like a wounded rabbit thrashing around.

And yes, rabbits make a hell of a noise while they are being eaten.

Actually, ask TPD if Ridge Hardware has them?? Always about the local little guys business!!

Don't know how many times I've gone to Lowes looking for something (like a reverse threaded bolt for a circular saw THEY sell) and told "Go to a hardware store!"... First time I just looked at the guy, right in the eye, like, did you REALLY just say that.. stared at him a LOOONG time.. REALLY?

Went to Ridge and the young-un behind the counter took me right to them.

They're supposedly down in Saint Inigoes spotted on the cow pasture next door to me. I'm outside a lot especially in the early hours, hoping to catch that one day. Saw an eagle one year, sitting right in the middle of the field. Just sitting there for nearly 15 minutes. They play the National Anthem each morning at Nesea. I thought it would be really cool if he takes off when they start playing but he left a little before that.
If I am outside I can hear that at 0800.

Oh yeah they do. Had a snake catch a bunny in my garage. The screams were soul shaking.
Caught a King Snake in my yard stalking a rabbit.. he was about 6 inches from the rabbit when I scared the rabbit off.. I never knew a snake could stare at somebody with daggers..

Think I caught the same snake in my garage in my brooder the following year, had one duckling wrapped up, and all you could see of the other duckling was the feet sticking out of its mouth. Saved one of them..

Same thing here and you can always find an employee - that's the part that I really like.
