    We finally got hummingbirds back but now have those aggressive jacket Hornets all over the feeders. They chase away the hummingbirds. So I bundled up and hung a beer catcher up between them. We stood in the window for 15 minutes rooting for them to fly up into the catcher and would cheer when they did. Lol

    On the way from Farmington MN to Spooky Pinball in Benton WI, you will run into this about 30 minutes out. No idea what town it is. It's out in the country though. We only got a pic of the front but both sides are as bad. Charlie told us he's painted it over and then added new wording a time or two but it's always been like this when we've gone by.

    I found out why there's so many wasps at the feeders the hard way with multiple stings on my ankle cutting the grass behind the fence. Thought I got shot and instant burning. Of course I was wearing shorts.

    Fuk that's one of the biggest nests I've seen

    Yesterday, we saw over a hundred bats at sunset.....never so many before.
    Right before that, Ive been nursing a Bird of Paradise back, that had an Armadillo nest underneath it.
    They ate the root ball up. First flower in 6 years.

    I got hornet stung last week when I was mowing the lawn and my leg still has an itchy golf ball size lump. I hate those things.

    Quoted from skink91:

    I got hornet stung last week when I was mowing the lawn and my leg still has an itchy golf ball size lump.

    Last week, a ground bee got me in the lower leg while mowing the pond's bank. Then a couple days after
    while in the paddle boat and pulling weeds from the lower bank, a ground bee got me in the back of the neck.
    That one developed a small bump. Ground bees are nasty, but I think maybe paper wasp are worse..

    We have those little bastards up here, they nest in the ground and are called Vespid wasps.
    Some people call them meat bees because they are omnivores preferring sweet later in the season and meat when they first come out of hibernation.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=Vespid+wasps&rlz=1C1NHXL_enUS707US707&oq=Vespid+wasps&aqs=chrome..69i57&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    I have the full on beekeeper suit so I find their nests and terminate with extreme prejudice.
    I also have an antique wasp trap for them that I hang by my feeders.
    That is a piece of bacon suspended in the trap.

    An uninvited guest visited our cabin. He's been back once but not much left for him to enjoy. Bears sure do make a mess (didn't do much damage - just to the front door and window).

    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    Guess he didn't find any honey?

    Ketchup was his condiment of choice. All cupboards were opened, including the fridge.

    When he returned a couple weeks later, there wasn't much left for him to find - but he did find it: a small thing of peanut butter.

    When my wife and I were in our 20s we would grab a few beers, hit the back roads and crank up the tunes. Feeling a little housebound we decided to live our previous Alberta life in Saskatchewan today. This is just northeast of our town. Saw a no through sign so I headed north. Ran into a couple clearing brush and asked if this road was a dead end. Not only was it not a dead end but one of the coolest roads I've seen since living in Saskatchewan. 20200817_150316.jpg20200817_150439.jpg

    Get to the bottom of the hill and we're in the middle of a wheat field. We even passed a car on this total dirt road20200817_150705.jpg20200817_150804.jpg

    Ended up in the reserve north of town. Saw these nice horses. Wife said we're bringing carrots on our next afternoon drive 20200817_152329.jpg20200817_152346.jpg

    That’s incredible BD!!! If it’s what you’ve always wanted don’t hesitate .Im a ways from retirement and I enjoy every single day (dont wish your life away) but planning for that day I’m torn between Islamarada and the northwest.2 years away from taking family on a RV loop up north (from Northwest IN) through all the sights going west then lil south visit family in TX then back I can’t wait !!

    Dirk, you'd love Australia. 95% of the country looks like that.

    #896 70 days ago

    Saskatchewan is known for being flat. I can drive 6 hours south to the US border and not see a hill the entire drive. But go 5km North and there's a huge valley then flat again for another 100km or so. Crops in our area are canola, wheat and peas with the occasional alfalfa field.
