:angry: Dang it! Got up this morning and looked at the peach tree in the back yard,which was full of nice big peaches as recently as yesterday evening,and it was stripped bare! They weren't quite ripe,just starting to turn red,but apparently they were ripe enough for whatever ate them. A few were still on the tree half-eaten. I don't know if it was squirrels,racoons,a possum,or crows-crows ate all the cherries off the tree,and the rabbit about got the beans before I started spraying them with the hot sauce and soap. Should've sprayed the peaches too I guess.

Got a little shower of rain yesterday,barely enough to settle the dust,but every little bit helps.

I must be off now,to start that long trip to Orchard Park. I'm already dreading that long hard ride up rt. 219,but i've gotta go. :(

might have the answer here-a fake owl!

and the runaway ramp,Ridgway,Pa. rt. 219

:idunno: ...so much for the fake owl idea-owl looks so real even I think it's real-there's three crows on the ground and a squirrel in the peach tree right now. Apparently they're way smarter than I am,I spent almost $20 for that owl. $20 will buy a lot of Texas Pete! :angry:

back to the old pepper spray! :thumb:

ok,final update before I go to work-Jobyna insists that the owl has to actually be in the tree for it to work.It was only about 20' from the tree at first. I say if the squirrels were intimidated by the owl at all,it's close enough-but I moved it over into the tree anyway.Now we'll see who's smarter around here-me,her,or the squirrels.

I think it's very good of you to feed and provide for the wildlife.

A lot of environmentalists would be very proud of you.

Used to spend quite a bit of time on Rte. 219 from Salamanca, NY down to Mahaffey, Pa.

Had a good friend in Mahaffey that I used to race with.

It wasn't much of a road, and tough to pass on with all of the coal trucks.

Has it changed any?

If creatures eat all the fruits and vegetables I might have to join P.E.T.A.-that would be the "people eating tasty animals" one,not those other ones :D

219's not a bad road at all,kinda hilly,little crooked but not too bad. It's even paved now :D I don't see many coal buckets on it at all. Most of the truck traffic seems to be going to Johnsonville to the bratwurst factory. Either that or the paper mill in Johnsonburg.

I don't know how much it's changed ,I used to either go up rt.15 from Harrisburg to Corning,or sometimes 79 to Erie and across the thru way. Neither's really a bad way to go,but not really a good way.I used to consider Buffalo one of those places you can't get to from here,but going up 220,99,350,80,153,and 219 it's only a little over 500 miles. I used to like the part of rt.15 from Williamsport to Corning,that's beautiful country.
