Operator, I read your response to my question on the old thread. That was way more information than needed, too much and wromg, too. I did what I wanted to do to get the results I was looking for and it worked. Remind me to never ask you what time it is, I suspect you will tell me how to build a watch.

Well that would be an improvement over the squirrels in our neighborhood this year. Squirrel(s) chewed their way into the "attic" near the top of the two-story chimney and moved in. Over $500 later, one had been trapped humanely and removed. After a couple days of silence, the trapper sealed off the entrances. A few days later we discovered for sure that there had been TWO squirrels as the other one was trying to find a way out. We (the trapper and DH) ended up cutting a hole in the wall to remove the second squirrel. :s: If I ever liked squirrels, I don't anymore!!!

Bee20nine - I'd invite you to come over and target shoot, but I live too close to this community where two teenagers were arrested for animal cruelty for shooting a squirrel with an air gun. Ironically and not taken into consideration, it is legal to shoot squirrels to eat, but it was out of season. ... Now if it had been Plant City or Ruskin [Insert the 'country' community of choice here], the officers would have understood that.

Thanks for the encouragement. Do they make silencers for .22's, since our neighbors are rather close?

And thanks WebRover for that fascinating story about the two teenage boys in Largo Florida awaiting felony trial for shooting a squirrel with an air rifle. Kinda frightening to be reminded just how deeply teenage boys can get into trouble before thinking kicks in.

EZ - the goldfish in my outdoor pond would have their eyes bugging out of their heads if they heard this. Oh wait! - their eyes already do that.......

A friend of mine at work took his 12 yr. old boy out fishing 2 weeks ago. The boy caught a few and bagged them. He caught one just as they were leaving, a trout, he threw it in a garbage bag and put water in it. When dad got home and started putting the gear away he noticed his son wasn't around, one of the things about fishing is ya gotta clean em up when you get home, anyway dad goes into kitchen asks mom where's boy? He's at the pool...the kid put the, still live, trout in the pool (chlorine level down, too cold to swim)...in the morning dad made him take fish out and clean it.

Kids do the craziest things. I'm sure it made sense to him!

How did he catch the trout again to clean it? Did he go fishing in the swimming pool?

HA! We asked if he grabbed his pole....nope....the kid just fished the trout out with a pool net for getting toys and stuff.

This 12 yr old kid is one of those can do everything kids. All-star pitcher/shortstop...quarterback for Pop Warner....he is cool to have on the job (Dodger fan like myself) he can drive a bobcat around like....well as good as OPERATOR could if she "messed" with little dirt movers!

I have lots of Goldfish in my house, they are for me to take to church for the kids. Having several LARGE boxes of unopened Goldfish in my house is a real test of my integrity.

BARGOO...I keep forgetting to get back to you on this! I love it! I used to take packs of fun fruits...kids were always following me around. This year I ordered a 100 packs of "cheaper" baseball cards.....the kids, boys and girls...loved them!

I sit at the end of my pew....when they went up for communion, if they didn't have a pack for the day already, they would stick out their hands as they passed and I would load it!

Ingredients:
Made with Smiles and Whole Grain Wheat Flour, Unbleached Enriched Wheat Flour [Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Folic Acid], Vegetable Oils, (Canola, Sunflower and/or Soybean). Contains 2% or Less of: Salt, Yeast, Autolyzed Yeast, Spices, Leavening (Baking Soda, Monocalcium Phosphate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Annatto (Color), Onion Powder, Butter, Enzymes, Sodium Phosphate.

(I've gotten this from two websites, not the package itself. Actually I was surprised thinking that it would be unlikely that a major food corp. would take the risk of putting a non-ingredient on the list and that the FDA would ok it.)



There ya go ruining the Goldfish crackers for me... I really wanted Smiles to be a "Real" Ingredient. :(

My X found out one time that I can throw one helluva mean curvebottle. Then he tried to run and found out I can also throw a mean cast iron slider. He NEVER used THAT particular word during an argument again.:s:

Come up and see me sometime. I'll take ya for a spin.

According to the shovel hands, I need to take about half the truck crew out and teach them how to get under the "Banjo" straight. When we park at the end of shift it really shocks me how poorly it's done. I've told more than a few of them that they park like a bunch of mall mommies after happy hour. They don't exactly appreciate it, but they don't argue about it either when they look back and see what a cluster they left of the Tie Up Line.

We-ell, Every Goldfish cracker I've ever (eaten) seen did have a smile on it. And I'm sure they wouldn't put them on the ingredient list if they weren't real ingredients. :crossed:

Goldfish.

It reminds me of a party my daughter attended when she was in the 4th or 5th grade. It was a boy's birthday party and they were all swimming in the pool and having a great time and then the mom dumped in 100 live goldfish! The kids caught them in their hands and put them in cups and then got to take home any that were still alive. Very few died which amazed me. Our goldfish lived for several months before we had to flush them.

But did they die with a smile on their faces ?
