It's a battle - he won't give up.

Centerville,  TX

We are STILL in a battle with Mr. Hardhead, the cardinal.

We covered the offending windows of the RV.

He moved on to the truck windows.  Our solution.

Today we noticed he has been pecking at the actual truck now leaving scratches on the finish.  Fortunately where he is attacking is going to be replaced due to the damage I did last week.   (Still waiting for approval from insurance company). So, once the truck is repaired and Mr. Hardhead goes to pecking at it, what do we do?    We can not allow this nuisance to leave scratches on our truck.

One challenge working in the oil field is the dust.  Trucks in and out; some slow down, others not so much. No matter how slow, we deal with the dust    Yesterday they called a water truck in to tamp it down some. Worked good yesterday, dusty today.  Cough, cough.  We will be requesting the same service for tomorrow.

On an up note, the weather here is fantastic.   How is it where you are?


  1. Oh dear...that dust would drive Paul nuts.

    Weather in Ohio has been beautiful...BUT...they say we may have showers with a mix of snow next Wednesday. Egads, that will be April 16...enough is enough

  2. Maybe you ought to plaster some of that dust all over your truck so it won't shine?? :)

  3. I'm with Judith, maybe the dust settling on the truck will keep him from seeing his reflection? What a PITA he is! Hopefully when his hormones subside, he'll stop. It's been hot here in Central Florida, high 80's to low 90's. I like the heat, but the AC has been running every day.

  4. He sure is not liking himself much to keep slamming into your windows but now the truck itself. Maybe he needs meds.

    The wind for the most part has slowed down but of course now we are hitting mid 90's. I better figure out what I am going to do this summer besides hide in the house. I'm sure that won't last too long and I will hit the road to higher places
