    sorry to change the subject -- I think we finally found a flower species not eaten by the local critters (deer and bears and groundhogs and chipmunks and whatnot).

    We had it in MA -- but -- you know -- we don't have any here!
    Thanks for the suggestion/tip.

    Another suggestion I got from someone at our church -- scatter dog fur around the plantings to deter deer. We have no dog -- but our daughter & son-in-law do. Their hound dog, Sully, is a major exporter of fur ;)

    They were the manufacturers of the windows used in the house -- windows with which we're none too happy, by the way. Ahh, well -- live and learn. We'll replace them at some point :pensive:

    How often do you get into your attic -- much less sidle over to the window up there (if so equipped)?

    ;)

    speaking of windows -- I went out in our garage one night earlier this week, and espied this little guy (or girl) up above one. To give a sense of scale, that piece of wood is 3-1/2 inches wide.

    Two FL doe beating the heat for a bit. Unseasonal high temps and rain shortfalls have brought a lot of wildlife close-in this year to irrigated lawns and shrubs.

    Just a cell phone pic but, hopefully, you can see the drop in our rain fed lake. Down almost 5 ft. from normal, first of June level.

    What a difference a couple of weeks make when the rains come! Note lake level.

    So you killed the deer?

    I think they're very cute -- cuter than the aforementioned spider -- but, you gotta admit, they are (on the outside, at least), small vehicles. And this was a big momma spider.

    True &That is why I bought it, I wanted something that would sit up high like a truck (hate cars) was small and easy to drive & handle and park since it would be mainly a vehicle to drive to work and trips ;)

    plus its 33+ mpg made my Trip to Dallas nice, and I love how when going down a big hill with the wind at my back it would say your averaging 40 mpg your averaging 44 mpg etc.. B)

    I've been drooling over these!

    It looks like you really went all-out on them. It even looks like you used all-new stainless BHCS as a finishing touch. Awesome right down to the smallest detail! I bet Matt Polk is impressed too.

    It's an inspiration to my own Polk restoration project coming up here in a few months. Now that I have all of my SRT drivers rebuilt and fully functional, I plan to remove all of the components and restore all of the woodwork on the cabinetry. I want to make them better than they were new. High-end furniture grade.

    I also want to upgrade the amps with audiophile capacitors, and am also looking into replacing some of the other components with higher-quality parts too.

    If I were you I'd never sell those bad boys. Way too nice to ever part with and an awesome piece of Polk Audio history.

    We feel about the same way, but we're one notch up on the size -- I have an (older) RAV4, and Mrs. H, a 2016 CR-V. The latter is happy to return 30-32 mpg in the kind of driving she does (which I think is pretty respectable; it's virtually as good as the mileage her '05 Escape Hybrid got, and the Honda's nicer and superior in every way to the Escape).

    The RAV4 (an '06) tends to get about 25-27 mpg in similar driving
