now this little fat mousie is funny! he deserves his lunch. Smiley_emoticons_smile



This sneaky mouse has shown an amazing talent for sneaking into a backyard bird feeder to gorge on nuts and oats.

The brazen rodent has made several raids on the hanging feeder in the backyard of keen gardener Noel Blundell's Merseyside home.

On more than one occasion, the three-inch-long field mouse has eaten so much while inside that he became to fat to escape, and Mr Blundell had to free him. ::lol::

Mr Blundell said: 'He is incredible little creature. I'm sure he thinks he's a squirrel.

'I thought I was hallucinating the first time I saw him scurry up the tree trunk and then scamper out on the branch and swing down to get at the bird feeder.

'A couple of times he has gone right inside the feeder, when the level of seed inside has been lower than the feeder hole. Once inside he has gorged himself so much on the bird seeds and got so fat that he could not squeeze back out through the hole.

'I've had to free it a couple of times now, but it keeps coming back. He's even started bringing a friend with him.

I really enjoy the pix you all are posting. It's fun to see that you Mockers have such normal lives. Hahaha!

LC, did the flowers you posted come from a vine? If so, it's called trumpet vine, it comes with yellow flowers too, both have tremendous growth and would easily take over an arbor and any surrounding fence.

you were right about vine Duchess! i emailed an expert. Smiley_emoticons_smile it's considered an invasive nuisance.
their reply:


Linda – That looks like trumpet vine or Campsis radicans. Here is a Google link to check out: http://www.google.com/images?rlz=1T4DMUS...=en&tab=wi

This vine is, to some, considered a thug, so be sure to read an article on it.

Thank you for contacting the Society!

You are no longer in the womb, friend. The competition is tougher out here.

Wow..There's a huge difference in our growing season. We've had tomatoes & corn for a month now {from the local produce stands}. I don't think our first frost comes until late Oct. - early Nov.

I like soaking corn shuck and all in water for a few hours then putting them on the grill for about 12 hour. they sell 13 for 4.00 around here. a market dozen is 13. Good stuff!

Zucchini .......I love dat chit w/butter and salt & pepper. I am sick of weeding really though. Tomatoes are everywhere compared to last year when I got none. But I have learned to rotate crops and plant winter rye. My Broccoli is slow this year and so are my peppers but they have finally learned to grow after a bit of pinching and fertilizing. I have a big pile of compost that will be going in next year. I have learned over the years, and will probably go to my grave gardening now. But I must say that my old rototiller was a good investment. My advise.....buy an old one with plenty of tork. I learn every year. Smiley_emoticons_smile

I like carving "special" pumpkins and usually just buy them, they take up alot of room, by Jezus. LC has more big room than I do. My garden is small patches around the house.

I didn't think people even eat vegetables anymore. Everytime I go to the grocery store the cashier asks me "whats this?", it's a green onion for Gods sake. I'm surprised he recognized the carrots.

I've tried growing tomatoes, herbs, and a variety of peppers, but I don't have a green thumb. They produce a lot of fruit for a few months and then they just die.
