Looking at your deleted posts, none of them linked to a photo. A link to a photo would end in .jpg, .png. .bmp, etc. On flickr, I think you need to click share > BB Code.

Ok, I tried to edit the post. I repeated steps, making sure I copied the correct code. It still did not work, so I put the old link back in. I haven't been able to do it in the past either, so maybe my phone is the culprit. lol
Will shut up & lurk for a while now.

This morning around 5:00 am I heard a scratching going on above the finished ceiling in my basement office. Removed one ceiling panel and saw a little, tiny hociR three-lined ground squirrel (AKA chipmunk) rear end as s/he disappeared out a tiny hole in my foundation. Little Alvin had been furiously chewing a hole in a floor joist (to what purpose I don't know, but he might have read the squirrel blog from Rupert's Jeep wire's).

Now I've had mice and I've had bugs and once I even had a rat - but I've never had any kind of squirrels in my house. The exterminator tells me they're really hard to convince a house isn't the best place on earth to make tunnels once they start.
Back in my "livin in the country " days, I learned a 22 will convince them real quick.

So will a cat. At least my cat. She tries to eat any animal or bug that isn't another cat.

Norwegian squirrel's and possums do not come close to this thing.
The body was as long as my forearm, then add a tail almost as long. Bunch of guys saw it climb the building, They were about 300 feet away and saw it do it`s climb.
Godzilla squirrel

If you found salt, a pentagram, and half burnt candles around that wasn't a squirrel

The MNR here say that when people report wildlife, they always estimate it's size and weight to be twice what it is. Maybe you just fell prey to the excitement of the moment.

I work with skeptics. No excitement here"what the hell...check this out...you see what I see" is all we got out of the people that witnessed this oddity.

I have had quite a few people turn me down because I shoot with pentax.
I don't mean to be rude but that is really silly! It doesn't matter what make of camera you have, so long as you get the pictures right. My friends wedding was shot with a Pentax, this ridiculous attitude that you have to have a Canon or a Nikon before your taken seriously is rather stupid. It really does wind me up when people say to me 'you won't get anywhere without a Nikon, blah blah'. I probably don't get taken seriously as a car driver because I have a Mini, when In reality I should have a Farahri? Cecil Beeton never had any of this posh gear.
