To have a post deleted, click the little red x next to the post id# at the bottom and ask to have it removed. Give a reason and a moderator will hide it shortly.

That's not fast enough for me! I like to catch and fix/delete my mistakes before anyone else does.

You can fix your mistakes yourself within the hour by using the Edit button, you just can't delete an entire message.

And I actually knew that, but was apparently having a brain fart.

No, but Sue and I try to be. On the other extreme is our Facebook friend Leah, who is a professional proofreader and whose posts often have so many typos you can't even figure them out.

This is for our friend in Arizona. I can't remember right now who that is.




IIRC, his price was $395. The bench behind him was $1250. Or something like that.

[edit] No, I think RR was $695. [/edit]

Okay. Yes, your weather thing says that.

I suppose I should include New Mexico too, if we have anyone there.

I'm sorry to interrupt this raccoon channel, but in 3 more weeks(October 1st) I've got 2 more corners to seal up with GE Silicon Caulk, as the 2 remaining corners are allowing the moths to enter into the mobile home, the outside panels are loose, to fix those panels, I'd need a 3/8" cordless drill & charger, 2" #8 flathead phillips wood screws, a 7/64"x2" drill bit and a #8 countersink bit, as the nails Fleetwood Enterprises installed the panels with have allowed the panels to come loose at the halfway point by about 1/16", lower down the panels must be looser than 1/16", the park wouldn't do the repairs at one time, I'll have to talk to them Monday while I wait for UPS, and I can only do this on concrete where I can use the step ladder at, anywhere else and the ladder sinks into the ground when I'm on it. I'd do the work now, but I just can't right now, even though I wish I could, as I'm getting 1 moth a day in here, I just killed one today, not like I want to kill anything, but these moths are too small to catch alive, the moth came out of the closet and the moths were coming out of there even with no clothes or other cloth fabrics in there and except for the 2 corners I've sealed up everywhere else, this 26yr old mobile home is not sealed very well anymore, though I have fixed some of that already. Fleetwood Enterprises went bankrupt in 2009.

I now return y'all to your normal raccoon activities.

I found the drill, screws, drill bit and counter sink with shipping and some sales tax from Amazon would cost Me $168.79 total, so far caulk has cost $26.96 in 4 tubes, I may need 2 more tubes and so there goes another $13.48, the bathroom closet needs some caulk, lots of gaps here & there, as Grace found a moth that had just emerged from there tonight(the door to the bathroom is in front of the door to that small sized master bathroom closet), they are really trying to get in, the bathroom closet just has a water softener and some nearly empty shelves, but no cloth of any sort, not even towels. Can you say siege?

Vic start a Journal. So what if you have a moth or two in your house. Not a big deal.
I have plenty of open spaces and yes a few flies, moth and spiders. I don't bug them and they don't but me.
Pun inteneded!

Vic, enough already!!!!

I support Uli in asking you to put all this moth and caulking stuff in one single place, but not here. This is Angela's thread and she is always very gracious in allowing it to wander, but this is just getting silly now. In fact I will start a journal for you, because I know it matters to you to report these things.

No probs Ulibelle :-) But this is all assuming we have Angela's blessing. If not it will be undone.

Nothing is off topic in the Critter Cafe. I have no wish to control the content of this thread. This is simply a place where Critter People gather to talk about whatever they wish. (Readers who are bit squeamish about critters from Class Insecta may wish to use the "Ignore" button.)


Luna Moth



Cecropia Moth



Sphinx Moth

Charles Darwin predicted the existence of this pollinator, based on the shape of the orchid he was studying. This moth species was discovered well after Darwin's death.
