Yes!!! Multiple stashes of pecans in empty flower pots that I had lying on their sides so the rain water would not collect in them. There were little dried leaf nests inside and at least half a dozen pecans hiding in the nests.
If I hadn't decided to clean the courtyard of all our neighbors leaves, which was nearly half a foot deep in places, I tried to get David to go out and clean it by making subtle hints at all the leaves. But tha'ts like watching paint dry.
So I went out before the sun broke through the clouds and started cleaning the place up. I had moved the humongous planting cart David made for me this past spring over by the back fence, sucker liked to weigh 5 tons. Moving it was pure torturer, but I got it done.
Then I went back to sweep leaves into a pile but there were piles of neatly hidden pecans nestled in leafy nests. As I moved other things I found all their nests all over the place. So now I have made the back courtyard accessible to the puppies too. Everyplace a squirrel nest could pop up, the puppies can also get to. That should keep the little buggers out of there.
I also told the woman next door that there may be squirrels getting into her attic crawl space. I noticed that they come and go from her front eaves over her front porch. I don't know if she will do anything about it cause she sneered at me when I told her. So be it. I was just trying to help.
Well after all my hard work with the courtyard, David came from picking up leaves from the front yard, noticed I was doing all this and said " Don't overdo it woman!"
Say What!?? Don't over do! Heck, ( I think you all noticed that I have cleaned up my language), if I don't do it, I'll be watching leaves pile up to the windows. ahahahhaaa "Don't over do it!!!" I was ready to smack him for that remark.
Anywho, I feel a bit sore but none to wear. I sort of feel great to tell you the truth. The courtyard is pretty and clean again. The squirrels are really upset this morning. Yes my minions I can hear them cussing me out as I write this post. The puppies are going crazy whining that they need to go out and hunt squirrels. But I think instead I'll just open the blinds and watch as the squirrels are hunting for their stashes of nonexistent nuts. BWAAAHAHAHHAHAHAHhahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahhahahaaaa!!!!
