The Damn D3 Is Really Getting To Be A Nut Buster!!

  1. It was bound to happen sooner our later! The D3's magnesium body and
    bulletproof design was eventually going to get tested to the breaking point!
    It is said that sometimes the nut wins and sometimes the D3 wins. Well, the
    D3 didn't fair so well in this run-in! It aint pretty!

  3. Squirrels are not very bright, apart from their sometimes amazing talent for
    getting into bird feeders.

    I saw one steal a lump of charcoal from somebody's outdoor grill once, and
    race off home proudly with his loot.

    LOL! Yeah, but I've seen people do similar things.

  6. It's when they learn how to light it is when the problems start.

  7. I think there is something in charcoal that animals need.....I used to have
    a dog that would steal pieces of coal out of the fireplace and gnaw on it
    afterward. I know that squirrels' front teeth will grow to unmanageable
    lengths if they don't find things to gnaw on to wear them down.....Perhaps
    this is what they do with the charcoal.

    I think it's a good squirrel shot. The bokeh is weird, but I would not
    have noticed the foul "nut" had it not been called to attention.

    I know of a fat assed moron from Baltimore who spend $5K on a camera and
    can't produce a single decent shot!

    There was a theory I heard on "Animal Planet" once that some animals
    eat charcoal and diatomaceous earths to absorb toxins in their
    stomachs. Of course, you wouldn't need that charcoal if you didn't eat
    rabbit poop.

    But is that really rabbit poop Rita's squirrel has in its yap? From the
    photo it might be a small hunk of charcoal.

    My theory about the squirrel I saw steal that charcoal from a grill is that
    there might have been some tasty stuff that dripped on it while cooking, and
    the dumb rodent thought it would be tasty all the way through. But who
    knows -- maybe it was just for toxin absorption or something. Interesting.

  16. It's rabbit poop! It's obvious when pixel peeping while viewing the 100%
    image. Plus we all use gas grills in the neighborhood.

  17. OK, I'll take your word for it.

    Heh. No accounting for taste, as the saying goes. Some people actually want
    Hillary for president, which would be a helluva lot worse than rabbit poop.

  18. Heh. No accounting for taste, as the saying goes. Some people actually want
    I think it would be funny......Actually, I am convinced that the president
    is so usless that it doesn't matter who holds the office. I am thinking of
    switching party affiliations so I can vote for Hillary in the primaries. I
    want a, "Hillary-O'Donnel" ticket.....I can't think of anything that would
    be funnier......

  19. Yep! Big business would love to have her in office.

    Rita Berkowitz, Jan 19, 2008
  20. In some respects you're right, but I'm afraid my sense of humor falls well
    short of enjoying Hillary as president.

    Would that be Hillary and Larry O'Donnell the leftist-liberal commentator?
