  1. I don’t like extreme temps either. When I’m feeling cold, nothing beats hot chocolate. Just saying... While it hasn’t been overly warm, it is warmer than normal temps for me - 10C/51F. Have to say though, the guy down the street was wearing shorts while he was cleaning his truck bed, which seemed to be pushing it if you ask me.
  2. I’ve heard that, too. I’ve left the back gate open hoping the pair of foxes around here - I’ve only see one, but my neighbour has seen two - will investigate this new space and leave their scent behind, but so far, no luck. There is an outdoors store that sells it, so that’s also something I’ve been thinking about trying.
  3. Moth Balls we don’t have, and we tried cayenne pepper, but they scoffed at that. This particular pair must like spicy food. 😒
  4. I wondered about that as an option, so thanks for the tip on how to do it. I do believe we have enough that I could try this. Will have to be Wednesday, though because we’re supposed to get two days of rain/snow, which I’m hoping will keep the squirrels from scampering around on the roof. It’s amazing how loud those little critters can get just running around.
  5. What I need is something like that I can wrap around the trunks of the trees - there are two of them - they use to get up to the roof.
  6. There’s a local Outdoors store that sells fox urine, which raccoons really don’t like, but I thought living the gate open would be cheaper. I’m hoping the resident fox is curious enough to come in and leave his scent behind. So far, he’s playing coy...
  7. Tried the Epsom salts, but they didn’t work. I read vinegar is a deterrent, so I’ve been buying cleaning vinegar (10% acetic acid vs. cooking vinegar which has 5%) to mark the trees they climbed to get to the roof and the large half circle of dead grass where they marked “their” territory. That works well, but it always needs redoing after it rains. Sadly, this doesn’t stop the squirrels...
  8. I feel your pain, Chris. 12:43 a.m. and I’m in the same boat as you. *sigh* Oh, and discovered yet another roof shingle has been ripped off by a bloody raccoon. Grrrr!
  9. I’m just about to, so my motor has been parked in neutral the last while. And with that, I bid you all a good night. The sweetest of happy dreams when your time comes... xoxo
  10. We don’t - and won’t judge you - Sherye. Being kind and respecting each other is what we’re all about in the DiC, and from where I sit you fit right in.
  11. No worries. Keeping that inside doesn’t do you any good, so rant when you need to.
  12. The daughter sounds as if she hasn’t got a clue and lives in her own little world.
  13. Good evening, rick. I hope you have a nice holiday tomorrow. As for me, the day is winding down, so I’m going to read for a bit before going to bed. Good night DiCers. The sweetest of happy dreams when your time comes...
