one of my trees and I heard weird noises outside. Went out and there was these two little tiny
baby squirrels circling the tree but not even going back up the tree. I actually made a sling and
put them in the sling, got the ladder and hung them as high up in the tree as I could. I thought
mom might come back to get them. Over a day passed and they were still huddled in the sling.
I took them back inside in a cardboard box. I went to the vet and bought cans of milk....I think
it was kitten milk and some little tiny bottles. I ordered one of the cages and as they grew, I ordered
another cage.....turned it upside down and connected them so they would have height to climb.
I made a sling inside that they would play on and some times fall asleep on. There was also a
small home made box inside with a hole all the way through so they could go inside for darkness
and to sleep.
In the mornings I would say BREAKFAST and they both would come running to the front of the
cage for the bottle. I would hold the bottle up thru the bars of the cage to feed them. When
they got full, they would simply stop and run to play.
They are very fun to watch. Very playful. They chase each other and do all kinds of acrobats.
As they grew and could eat solids, I gave them raw peanuts and a walnut every so often...not
good to give them many fatty nuts like walnuts and pecans. I have tons of hickory trees and
the hickory nuts are every where so I would collect a few of those and give to them too.
As they grew, I would take them with their entire cage, outside on a dolly. I would sit them in
the woods so they could here the sounds.
Finally, one day Miss Red came to the bars of the cage and hollered WAAAAAAAA.....WAAAAAA....
WAWAWAWAAAAAA. She seemed surprised by her own extremely loud sound. I knew then it
was time for them to go.
That was a few years ago. Their cage is attached way up in a tree outside with roofing material
around it for protection. No, I don't think they live there any more but they did for awhile.

I'm very jealous of your azaleas that bloom sometimes in the the winter. That would never happen here!

It really isn't all that much...maybe it points to how many of the users are inactive, rarely active, just click ads etc as another GPT site like this I belong to which is a year younger passed the $100 million payout threshold last year. Of course, Clixsense for a long time was purely PTC whereas the other site was GPT from the beginning so that explains some of it but CS pay more than the other site for tasks, offers etc. Just find it strange that the numbers aren't higher
Anyway, congrats CS on reaching that number and it will be 10 Million users before long

For those of you living in 4-season areas, how do you prepare for the arctic blast? I have a primal need to run out to the grocery store to get food (especially to make home made chili). I stack straw around my roses. And I do everything I possibly can to ensure I don't have to stick my nose out the door for the next few days.
