Hi Indy Sam! Just Finished Shutting Down
....the Milonga tonight. It was a lot of fun! Got to sing some old songs a little bit then because everybirdy was getting so tired, they began to go home. It was understandable. Paddle boat races and water wars with super soakers!

You know, my Mom has some super soakers. When they first moved here, she set up bird feeders all around but made sure she put a feeder and bird bath right in front of the house to take advantage of sitting on the porch to watch the birds come. Well, they take a while to find new feeding stations and those crafty squirrels found them before the birds did! Mom didn't have the heart to have her mate shoot them. They're just too cute. So, she purchased 3 super soakers. One for her & one for each kid (at that time). So, the water they have comes from a deep, deep well. It is cold as ice even in the summer time. These particular super soakers have got a lot of power to them! Plus the shock of "ice" water hitting them...well, Mom's a good shot. Her first time knocked that squirrel flying out of the feeder! She could literally sit on a porch rocker and shoot the squirrels out of the feeder!

A neighbor of their's, a police officer of Charlotte, came by one day looking for her mate. When he was driving up, she was blasting one of those squirrels out of the feeder. He couldn't believe how FAR those things can hit! Mom confessed to him she couldn't shoot the squirrel for real but she had to keep them from eating all the seed up. Those squirrels were getting super BIG!!! He laughed & laughed and had to sit there with her for a while to watch how it all went down. Mom made him laugh about the whole time sitting there. Those squirrels didn't care though. But they were SMART. When she'd have the super soaker laying on the floor or up against a porch post, they'd come out and make for the feeder. Go to pick it up and ZOOM, they were already running! That made her neighbor laugh harder! He must have thought she was one crazy woman...with a big heart, anyway. Heehhee! Now days, all she has to do is walk around with one of those super soakers & it doesn't even have to have water in it. That's enough to send the older ones running and the young one's run & ask questions later. She's a funny old gal!

You have a great weekend, Indy Sam! Hugs to all, SamIAm
