with my pet javilina, as of today he 'nuzzled, my fingers[weak hand,o.k.]
taking food,some sliced pears, he's pushing [2] years old and is all ready a 'loner 'boar . miss colleen and i, have named him "spike" as a baby it was fearless[the size of a tennis shoe, his litter mate disapered, they always do]

but he was different as he'd throw up a thin line of bristles[like a punkrocker
mohawk] and was funnier looking than the others from the herd[28-35]when he was football sized he was backing down full grown javilina in his 'troop'.

when we moved here, ha!i started 'roping' them when miss colleen was away!
and they broke-up/stayed away for about [2] months, the herd was to big and was bound to fracture anyway,now only about a dozen show up regularly


but 'spike' is different, i just ran him out of the garage[he had his head stuck
in a 40lb. sack of wild bird feed[luckaly, no mess]
i believe he would walk through the front door if you'd let him!

he sees us and comes running when you call his name!
just thought i'd lighten the mood with trivial banter
on a tight/razor edge election day!

funny about the squirrel.. ha!remember that song about the squirrel that went to church? [very funny]



update, on making progress, with my 'adopted' friend, as i backed my truck in behind the r.v. [stealth] he came a running up, so a 1lb. coffee can of dog food was dumped[he followed me half way into the garage] i went and got a bottle of beer [i'm on a dead line refurbing a rental that a water bed exploded, an they didn't say a word,the mold/mildew in master bed room peeled the 'popcorn' ceiling, so it's total refurb]


anyway, i'm setting on a milk crate having a beer 'talking to this varmint'

an he lays down with his back toward me about a foot an a half away, while eating[he's always 'faced me' untill this evening]



i thought it was pretty 'creepy/cool'
if he would just quit 'fartin'! they smell pretty "funky" when excited/scared

Just wondering

ha! havin' the 'herd' and the swimming pool, is a gristly 'comfort'


but 'spike' will be eaten before 'jack'

[Hmmm...there is a CAT named 'nora' that eats nothing but canned tuna!

it might be CRAZY TASTY]


[is my hardcore ***** shining yet?]

:roflmao1: same here! in fact i've got that 'ray stevens' cassette floating around in the cab of THE ford somewhere.

oh,man! the baby piggies were/are 'cute' as ma' and pa' started showing them off to me when they were about the size of a ladies shoe.

but ma' won't let them get to tame around 'me' as when i'm feeding them by hand[and they take carrots/cabbage/potatoes, ever so daintaily] and the rest of the 'troop' is piled-up in a 'hog-jam' she comes over and 'grunts' and they all follow her inline back to the 'troop' :)

Hehe, this reminds me of all the raccoons we get around my neighborhood.

Btw, I did have a pet squirrel (2?) years ago. We found it as a baby under some leaves (we just about raked it into the pile) and nursed it back to health.

Come autumn, it had to go. We kept finding the peanuts we fed it stashed in potted plants, our shoes and clean laundry.

We never really decided on a name for her, I wanted to call her Jim (which is also the name of my dog), my bro wanted to call her Rocky and my mom decided on zatchoo, since when she had been let out and a squirrel came to the bird feeder, you asked "that you?"

you know? those 'varmints' aren't the 'great-plauge[s.p.]
and are quite ENTERTAINING!

as i recall,[more 'rolled-gold' from the brass-hammer archives]
as i was about[15] years old, out in the WOODS squirrel-huntin' with a full-choke winchester#37[single-shot] 12 ga.
and caught "movement/flash" out of the 'crotch' of a [150] year old red-oak tree AND FIRED,,,FROM FORTY-YARDS AWAY!
what "tumbled" out, was a huge-assed OWL!
[and i recall seeing these HUGE-WINGS spreading out as it TUMBLED to the forest carpet/CRASHING!

when i went [to the sene of the 'crime'] the wise old OWL,,,IN IT'S DIEING BREATHS/GASPS,,,said TO ME!!!,,,,WHY?,WAYNE?![MUCH LIKE YOU WOULD HERE IT FROM YOUR BEST FRIEND! as in it being that CLEAR!]


ALTHOUGH, THAT IS IN THE MINOR-LIST OF 'STRANGE-SHIT' i could post.

Brass, when I was a tiny young'un I too had a pet wild pig for a while. My dad brought him back on his boat from Catalina Island as a tiny little piglet and he soon grew to be a ferocious looking thing. He was very smart and loyal as a dog. On the property were we lived at the time (in the forested mountains north of Los Angeles) we had a sign up 'Beware of Pig'.

UPDATE! as i've been assimulated/ADOPTED into the clan of smelley-varmints
i've NOTED!
1] a breeding pair 'throws' [2] piglets, [2] times a year!
2] the herd is in a constant state of 'flux/fracture' [ha! much like mine sworn ENIMEIES]
3] the 'babies' that only know me as a 'lunch-room ' will follow me threw the garage AND INTO THE HOUSE! these i can pet/stroke between the eyes with my LEFT-HAND!
4] when a 'jogger' strolls past,at the end of the drive-way![@25 yards away], while they are feeding/fighting over food the 'boss-hogs' will 'forget' what the 'squabble' was about and RUSH-FORWARD hair bristlin' a bout 10' and 'point' [the damndest thing, as it's so close to a 'gun-dog' on lock-point!
i almost fell-off my milk crate and spilled my beer from laughin']

'IFFIN' THEY WOULD JUST QUIT FARTIN'![and fightin'! as last week [1] of them took two punture wounds to his snout right under it's right-eye!
it looked just like [2] .45 cal bullet-holes oozzin' blood !] ha! i'm sure it will have 'sinus-problems' to SAY THE LEAST. :wavey:

oh, yes! I almost fergot, they don't 'like' women, or any strangers for that matter! but will come a runnin' when I back my truck up in the yard, and sleep under it! it's truly 'STRANGE' as i've taken to calling them my 'FAN-CLUB',,[boy, can I really pick-them] :roflmao1:
