Ret, when I put out birdseed, I have to put out trays of back oil sunflower seed for my squirrels just to keep them from tearing into my feeders! Seven is easy here, how about twice as many? Thats on a slow day, lol. They come across the street from other back yards, across the power lines, they EXPECT breakfst, and if they don't get it, they start looking, don't want them to do that, Ian said he came home one day nd they were all over the front of the house clinging to the bricks! Funniest thing you ever saw! I love em but man are they persistant little critters! Oh and before y'all say anything, for those of you that would say have some squirrel pie, thats just one more thing I CAN'T do in the city of Forest Park, not so much as a BB Gun. Stupid, gonna move from this *&#$@! place!

NEVER ET SQUIRREL??? You don't know what you're missing. Squirrel pot pie, or squirrel and dumplings, or just plain fried squirrel. Ya gotta try some.

That sounds good Ron. My favorite is squirrel gravy and waffles. Parboil them then de bone them mix up some thickening, waffles and a few mashed taters. Is also some good eaten.

Go to photo gallery.
Right click on your photo.
Then click on properties.
Then click on "select all".
Then click "copy".
Then take it to the message board and "paste" it in the optional image spot.
Like this.

gonna let this die today, before you all think I am completely stupid. Your directions are fine, I guess, but not working out here. when clicking on properties, the only choice you got is ok or cancel when the info about the pic opens up. That leads nowhere. Sometimes it is nice to have a daughter so close if I ever get her over here to figure out what I am doing wrong. I have done a lot of cutting and pasting, even tried other peoples pics cause got tired of looking at those darn squirrels

We all had to learn....nobody is born brilliant and all knowing.You learn one step at a time.Keep trying. Get to loooking at your picture.Then do this..Its like loading a fountain pen.Mark this on paper to use it as you do it.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>arrow on pic.----RIGHT click -------big sign pops up,look at bottom for >PROPERTIES< arrow on it then RIGHT click it-----another sign pops up then..LEFT CLICK,Move arrow to address URL on that new sign,Move arrow across as letters turn blue,Stop at end or loose the blue.While blue,RIGHT click end of last letter.small sign pops..See COPY arrow it then LEFT click it.Right click the OK sign to get it away. You got your ink in the pin now.

finally, good directions, also, I was swiping it from left ro right and it don't work that way, why, don't know. Anyway, I sure am not going to flood anybody with pics. Just like to know how to do things. thanks again,

Ret..The diffrence between you and the computer geek is time spent doing the tricks.

Clod    Posted 07-13-2003 at 08:47:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
She put one for me in the photo section.The old island camp on Trinity bay.I think I know how to put pictures now that she showed me how.But i have none here where i am to put on that would be of interest.If you get one on floppy disk they are not hard to get on back there.Stick the disk in the tower and look for blue letters>HERE< in photo section,Follow directions.The confusion comes only when you have to >>browse<<< to find your picture.You will find 3 1/2 Floppy if you browse.You cant mess anything up if you fail.

Clod, I inserted the pic in the photo gallery with no problem and I can view it there. Can't get it to transfer to this forum though. Know I have to use the optional image link at the bottom somehow

Ret..Ask Maggie.She knows how to move them.

Let's see if this works.

ret    Posted 07-13-2003 at 09:01:43       [Reply]  [No Email]
looks like it did, evidently you know the procedure

Clod    Posted 07-13-2003 at 08:55:08       [Reply]  [No Email]
Where is my pal? Out back chaseing rabbits out of the garden? You need to cook him a big pot of squirrel dumplings.There is enough squirrels there in the front yard.

I didnt know that would work here.Here is the camp on an island in the bay where we all used to stay to get away from civilization.No wires or pipes from cities.We made our own power and utilities.The food was free if you had a hook ,boat and gun.The storm took the house away one year.
