The Grillmaster

Who says you can’t use the barbecue grill in the winter?

I took advantage of a beautiful sunny morning Thursday to replenish my squirrel photo archive at the local park.  But I have yet to comb through those photos and process them so they look decent for my blog. (Apropos of everything, why did they suddenly decide to remove the “strike” option of the classic WordPress editor… and does anyone know the Ctrl key combination to create it manually?)

Until then, please enjoy these squirrel photos Juliette sent me a few days ago along with her prize request for winning my Contest of Whatever.  Here we see a hungry squirrel on her deck deciding to make a very tasty snack out of the sunflower seed in that feeder that apparently wasn’t intended for him…

No, I won’t be cleaning up after myself either… I have people who do that for me.

See what kind of murder you can get away with when you’re so damned adorable and cute?  A big Saturday Squirrel thanks to Juliette for allowing me to share this feisty little furball with all of my readers!  I guarantee you it will be the only time you’ll ever see a photo of a squirrel on a barbecue grill on my blog…

Have a great weekend everyone… even if it will be an hour shorter for us poor DST folks

    Nice photos of a sneaky squirrel. The arrangement of objects on the deck make it look like someone almost wanted the little fellow to get some seeds. Just saying…

  2. roasted nuts are very tasty… good idea :o)

  3. HA! We always have more squirrels at our bird feeders (which are filled with sunflower seeds) than birds but that’s fine with us – they knock the seed OUT of the feeders to the ground and the birds eat them there – seems they have a good arrangement.


  4. BBQ’d Sunflower seeds…yup sounds about right when you’re an opportunist squirrel.
    As for WP, I haven’t switched to the ‘improved’ editor so can’t speak about strikethrough. You may need to chat with the “happiness” coaches. They are pretty responsive. Good luck and happy weekend.

    • I use the classic editor as well, though despite that fact that it doesn’t seem to be the vehicle WP prefers we write posts with, they still seem to occasionally tweaks things on it. The keys for strikethrough and to make that long line you can use to separate parts of a post both disappeared a few days ago… though it was replaced with a dropdown menu that allowed me to make HUGE text like I did in yesterday’s post. I just realized it could be a theme issue as well, since I believe individual themes all have different options on the editor…

    A family of squirrels made a home in one of my dad’s old charcoal grills. They brought leaves and straw. It was shameful to evict them.

  6. Thank you for featuring my squirrel friend. He provides us hours of entertainment.

    Squirrels know how to use their cuteness as well as they know how to use things to climb to feeders! There’s one outside the window staring at me right now. It’s so freaking adorable. Of course I must go do its bidding.

  9. I don’t know what the “strike” option is exactly. What I DO know is that yesterday I could barely get a photo into a post, but today they are almost working again. Now there’s something funky and strange going on with the “tags” section.

    I don’t know what they are doing, but it isn’t going very well. I was surprised anyone got through yesterday. All my graphics were wrong. I’d pull one from online and I’d get the wrong picture, or three of the same pictures (and also wrong) … It was really bad. So maybe it wasn’t just ME.

    • I noticed the dividing line key was gone whatever day I updated my contest page this week (I think it was Tuesday), so whatever they changed on my theme got done then. I liked my strike key… it served as a useful tool for my humor. I’m sure I’ll find uses for the LARGE FONT option that replaced it, but given the choice, I’d take back the strike key….

  10. Yo, I think I may have figured out why your strikethrough option could be missing from your classic view Try clicking on the ‘Toolbar Toggle’ icon next to the ABC spellcheck button. When I hit mine, it disappeared, but when I re-hit it it shows up. The only thing I see actually missing is the underscore button but that’s easily fixed with a couple of shortcut keystrokes. Hope that helps!
