The Adventures of The CHEEKY SQUIRREL(S) - "The Lawn Chair Attack"

Well, I wasn't too happy the other day when I caught this cheeky squirrel chewing up my lawn chair.  By the time I realized what he was doing it was too late.  He already ripped it up.  I thought after he had seen me at the patio door - he would have taken off.  No such luck.  At least I got it on camera! Lol.








MY SIGHTINGS: DOVES ATOP CHAPTERS' BUILDING

These doves either liked reading good books or they knew where the good food was at, lol.  They were all gathered on the roof of the Chapters store... and nowhere else.

So if you think it's just owls that are associated with wisdom and sacred knowledge, you might want to think again.












No doves anywhere else in sight!









MY YOUTUBE FINDS - Jack

Meet Jack English, a 93-year-old legend who lives in a cabin isolated deep in the Ventana Wilderness.

While on a hunting trip he learned that an old homestead in the Ventana Wilderness was being put up for auction by the estate of a childless heiress. He put a bid on the property and won. On the land he built a small cabin using materials from the land and milling trees by hand. When his wife passed away, Jack effectively left "society" and moved to the cabin full time.


Ventana Wilderness is a Federally designated wilderness area located in the Santa Lucia Mountains along the Central Coast of California.  Some favourite quotes I loved, from Jack...


"It's not that I don't like people, I do, but I don't like 'swarms' of them."

"I'm just different than most people... I'd rather go back than go ahead."


I would love to be able to live like Jack someday... just not alone, lol.  Great video!

HOUDINI FINALLY TRIES OUT HIS NEW BIRD BATH!

Yeah!

So it has been 3 months since our lovebird Houdini, finally felt brave enough to try out the new bird bath/observatory. Lol. I say observatory because that's what he has been using it for - to gain closer access to seeing us when we're in the kitchen. Not as a bird bath.

I thought he'd never use it. I did everything to try to encourage him and then finally, one day - bam! He uses it. Just like that! (See video)

I remained pretty calm as not to scare him. I was happy and finally relieved to see him use it. I only have the one love bird and I've had him for almost 10 years now. I've also noticed over that period of time, that whenever I get him something new, it takes him weeks to get used to it.  This time, the bird bath took months.

I thought this day would never come...



CUTTING UP SOME FRESH PINEAPPLE...

So I had to cut up some fresh pineapple the other day. Since I've started doing this a few years ago, no one seems to want the can pineapple anymore. Now I've created a bunch of spoiled pineapple brats... Wait a minute, that doesn't sound right.  Well you get the picture.

It doesn't take long to do - just a lot of mess.  In the end it is worth it.  I did 2 that day.

Anyways, for those who care, this is how it was done...




First you want to twist off the top part of the pineapple, or you can just slice off the top right below the leaves (as shown above).  People twist them off if they want to reuse the top part to grow more pineapple. I'm not planning on planting and growing any pineapple... I just love twisting them off... I'm weird.



Then you want to cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple...
