Im not sure what has happened, but twice now, chaos has been the scene of our hummingbird feeder.

When we came back from our first Covid trip, the bird feeder was empty and laying on top of the grill right side up. The second time we came home from a Rona Trip, the hummingbird feeder was completely empty and the deck is covered in sticky sugar water.

I know those things are vicious and super territorial but i can only assume some sort of hummingbird orgy or massacre when we leave.


Sounds like a bear took it down

While we definitely have bears, i would be shocked if a bear made it into our fenced back yard

I wouldn't be so sure:

Found the main valve for the manifold that feeds our irrigation system. I tell the guy on the phone "When I opened it a quarter turn, the pressure felt pretty intense. How much should I open this thing to feed the system?"

"All the way."

"Seriously? You're not worried it's going to split the manifold?"

"No, it should be fine."

I open it all the way. Immediately hear a tremendous gushing sound. Run-crawl across the width of our crawl space, up the hatch, and outside to see the -- gasp! -- manifold split and water spewing all over the place. Run back in, get my floor all muddy, down through the hatch, turn the thing off. Called the professionals. :finger:

Tom Hanks made it looks hysterical in The Moneypit.

It feels more like the back half of Philadelphia.

I’ve never even seen a bidet before. I’d be too intimidated trying to use one, I think.
