Non-Railroad Photos
Got to agree, it's always nice to see a sunrise or sunset like this, but especially nice when you get to see it over and over again... Applause

We have lived here for 29 years and this was the first time we have spotted a redheaded woodpecker at the feeders.

My brother Peter took this photo of the sun rising over the east end of my hometown

Nice shot, Ed.

The weather here, on the other hand, has been a little fickle, as seen in this view of our backyard...

   

...and it's a long walk through the snow when anybody feels like using the pool.

Bruce, that spider will be having snake snacks for weeks.  Wish I had him around here to take care of the blasted squirrels and chipmunks.

Wayne - here's something you might want to consider,

I just started using one in the back yard and it seems to have reduced interference with the solar lights around the Backyard & Southern. I just ordered 4 more for various places around the yard. Be forewarned though, lead came can be rather long. The first one took 2 months to arrive, mainly due to shipping delays caused by the virus.

Here's something as dangerous as any snake, it's a Gila Monster resting by our front entry when we lived in Wickenburg. We just left it there until it decided to move on.... Just one of the reasons we decided to move on as well.

Interesting device, Tom, but I doubt that they'd get enough sunlight to work around here, as we have lots of trees, in addition to the yard being fairly large and oddly-shaped.
I do have fair success controlling the chipmunks with rat traps, but the squirrels are pretty-much impossible to trap (rat traps won't work for squirrels) and they seem to easily take the bait from live-trap that I borrowed from my son-in-law.
At the rate they're chewing through the walls of my garage (formerly a house, and over 100 years old) and much of the stuff stored in it, perhaps it'll collapse and kill 'em all. Applause

If I were living out in the country, I'd simply shoot them, but there are too many houses and people around here to do that safely.
