Tales ....

It's that time of year --- the mice are lurking around the garage looking for a warm winter vacation spot, the spiders are winding webs to wrap around your face when you least expect it, 


and the local squirrels turn evil


attacking gourds and pumpkins with a fervor that is inconceivable.



They roll the orange orbs to a preferred location
and then attack with a vengeance  


going straight for the core


showing no respect for the decorating element


So thanks to the dadgum pesky mice, moles, deer, 
skunk, fox and squirrels
today we moved the gourds indoors to the garage


 Orchids* to DIY Guy 
for sharing his taj ma garage
with the gourds.

*Explanation note:  
Orchids & Onions is an old newspaper term for handing out positive and negative feedback.
For example:
Orchids to DIY Guy for sharing his garage.
Onions to the critters for messin' with our bounty!
