Squirrels eat a lot.
In just a week's period, they can eat their entire body weight in food, which is about 700 grams.

Shoot, I can do that! (Eat my body weight in food in one week.) :-D

My body weight in food for a week would be 145 squirrels.

As proud as I am to be the Godmother of Walnut Bailey, I saw all kids on my last visit. They are like us, Cocky, shy, stubborn and opinionated.
Not sure if I agree with the training, but what ever floats the boat.
I do recall a long time back, a food experiment.

I use only positive reinforcement to shape behavior.

Eric shot some video footage the other night and has promised me that he will figure out how to YouTube it tomorrow.

Angela I think, does the cooking, the old saying is "A way to a man's heart is through his stomach".
I have no idea if this is true or not, but then I only dated once, so what do I know... Not much.

Well being single, and looking like I'm 45, when I'm 57, is one thing, I can't date anyone, not here, not yet, and not in the shape I'm in, that would be unfair, plus I'm fighting a health problem, an infectious one, so I have to decline.

If it did, I would be able to park at least one car in our two car garage!!! Some subjects are simply untrainable, for a wide variety of cognitive, social and behavioral reasons!

It always boggles my mind how many people don't use their garage for it's intended purpose.
The mind is a weird and mysterious place

I wish I had a garage, but such is not the case, so a bedroom got drafted for storage.
Most things in there I want to get rid of, since most has been there for 10yrs, unused...

Having a garage is a good thing.
But there comes a time when the car is no more.

I understand completely Angela, I myself am completely untrainable. My X-wifey will be happy to confirm this.

Do any of you watch The Orville?

If so, did you happen to catch this?

https://youtu.be/-yIXmjTL-HM

If not, check it out. It's only 28 seconds and well worth it!

Nope, I caught only the last 10 mins. :(

But you can watch it here.

MMMM, on my last visit, I happened to see a light on in the Garage. Ang asked me to turn it off. Among Eric's relics, I thought I also saw a car parked there.
