"Merry Christmas to EVERYONE, including the Radical Left Marxists that are trying to destroy our Country, the Federal Bureau of Investigation that is illegally coercing & paying Social and LameStream Media to push for a mentally disabled Democrat over the Brilliant, Clairvoyant, and USA LOVING Donald J. Trump, and, of course, The Department of Injustice, which appointed a Special ‘Prosecutor’ who, together with his wife and family, HATES ‘Trump’ more than any other person on earth. LOVE TO ALL!" -- Donald J. Trump

Grandfather was hanging out with Tony, the tiger, at the local Walmart today. Well, he did hang out long enough to get this picture for the grandchildren.

The Kellogg company, of Frosted Flakes cereal fame, has started Mission Tiger. This venture will help support getting more sports into middle schools.

We Have The Meats!

I think Arby’s restaurant uses the jingle “we had the meats.”

The above picture was used on a Facebook page used by residents of my 55+ retirement community. It was taken at Hastings Butcher Shop in Laurel, DE.

This isn’t about the meat but getting attention for a directory I created. It’s called Dave’s List, is free, online and password protected for residents only.

The community is growing and I’m trying to grow ths directory I administer. It’s a one man shop at this point in time. I’m the web designer, computer programmer, tech support staff, public relations manager and chief financial officer paying the bills to keep it alive.

Actually, this directory was created, in a much simpler form, while working at the Philadelphia Daily News before retiring in 2005. And the nice thing about that is I’m still taking pictures and writing code.

Darn Pigeons!!

If you have a pest problem under your solar panels, I know just the guy. Dan Leask of Solar Pest Solutions, LLC out of South Jersey came today and in a matter hours solved our pigeon problem. He was on time, professional and one heck of a nice guy.

Dan removed two pigeons from under our panes, removed pigeon waste, installed Critter Guard to prevent further infestation, provided photographs of all the work, and emailed them to me tonight.

Dan also allowed me to some drone shots of him at work. My kind of guy!

He’s in Dave’s List just in case you’ll need someone to do this sort of work. Search for “pigeon” using the EVERYTHING method.

It looks like the good folks on Grey Fox Lane are getting sod put down on the common area. This is one of the new sections of Heritage Shores. When you come in off Rt. 13 it is the first street on the right.

Any Excuse!

 Paddle Second Chance was held on Saturday, September 11th -- Patriot Day -- at Holts Landing State Park in Dagsboro, Delaware, to benefit war heroes as they recover and transition back to civilian life. 

The Coastal Camera Club, out of Lewes DE, volunteers to photograph these events.  The club asked if any member of the Event Photography group wanted to take some drone shots of this SUP event.

I volunteered as I’ll use any excuse to get my drone in the air.

SUP means Stand Up Paddle boarding events which are very competitive.  The race on Saturday had races of 3 different lengths, 1 mile, 5 miles and 10 miles.

The Real Deal

I have been fighting pigeons on my roof all summer. It got so bad I decided to get a fake hawk of Amazon.com. My neighbors have laughed seeing me clapping to drive them away, using an air horn and waving my fake hawk at them.

Well, today my new pet arrived and there was not a pigeon to be seen. There’s nothing like the real deal.

Last year, twice, I saw two piles of pigeon feathers in the yard. A hawk took out 2 pigeons it seems.

Now I need to find something hawks really like to eat, besides pigeons. I need to make them feel welcome at my house.

My Lying Eye?

Last week, I didn’t know if I could believe my lying eyes. Some contractor was using a car to help make measurements instead of walking. The HOA doesn’t allow cars on the walking path. Maybe the contractor didn’t know.

I’ve really been laxed in posting to my own blog. That’s because too time has been spent posting to my neighborhood Facebook pages.

So here’s a key I found walking on a walking path. It was taken home, a picture made of it, posted on Facebook and then turned over to our Lost & Found dept.
