Perhaps Otis got a hold of this fellow.

Looks like it! Seriously, squirrels here spend half their time trying to run the birds off the cedar fence and all the feed I spread out on the top rail so they can have it for themselves. Meanwhile, they leave their squirrel feeders unprotected and the birds are munching away on their squirrel feed!

Reminds me of the time Otis offered the Cardinals a free haircut and shave.....

(to you cricket loving blokes, that's American baseball)
Our pitcher played with a bloody nose in the second inning.
We have stronger pitchers than their cricket player counterparts. Ours can throw the ball hard enough to get it all the way to the batter without it hitting the ground first.

Otis calls cricket a "girly game". Don't shoot me, I'm just the messenger!

Some would say Otis is a "girly squirrel". Not my words, of course, I'm just repeating what I heard on the road!

There's a plane that could do a remarkably fast stop on a short runway.


A very slow low speed approach capability, good brakes coupled with those clamshell bucket type thrust reversers they had. Remember how they worked on them?





Noisy, but very effective.


A pilot could even back the plane up without a push back from ground support crews.

Otis wants to know who "someone" is......can you provide that information?

Otis takes it easy here near the Dog Days of Summer.....he fears no one or no thing......well, maybe Mrs Rupert a little?



Later he got a little privacy in his natural hammock....to relax and and enjoy.....at least that is all I hope he was doing?


BTW- The K1 will focus on your subject instantly...even in a brushy setting!

Here is a safety video, featuring Steve Dumas, a Canadian A&P.



A very good example of how the clamshell bucket type thrust reverser operates.

107 here right now.
That's almost warm.


A few years ago I was heading to South Carolina with an oversize load. About 50 miles West or Phoenix this happened.







It was 150.




I felt sorry for the tire guy that came out to put a new tire on.

He gets around...I see him everywhere.

Maybe in France, but in Texas it is definitely Dumbass. We know them well....we've got plenty of them.
