    what the heck is this thing?

    This has appeared on one of our windows on the first floor.
    Mind you, I have two degrees nominally in Biology, but I have no idea what this is.

    The color and fine structure make me think it's either an egg mass of some sort, or a critter of some sort -- or maybe it's just bird droppings(?).
    The better photo gives no sense of scale. I tried to add a ruler for scale, but I had trouble with focus (depth of field). This photo is inverted relative to the one above.

    Whatever it is, it's about 13 mm/0.5 inch long.

    Anyone have any idea what this is?

    :p

    It's possible, I think; good suggestion!

    Also quite flat. I did take a rather crummy photo from outside last evening.

    My garage system and “extras” hanging out in my new rack....

    Gotta reinforce the corners and make a few more shelves, but for my garage, it’s over qualified 😜

    Tony, is that a homemade crust?

    You can even plug a home stereo up to it.

    I'd do that too if I was down in Georgia or Louisiana and slept in there. I hate humidity!
    Bad thing with this set up, the AC will chill the air before removing humidity. But if you let it run long enough, I guess it would remove enough humidity at some point.

    You do what ya got to do sometimes. :D

    Some hotels just flat out suck.....

    LOL

    If you can believe it, I just stayed in a hotel on Friday and Saturday where the shower head was too short for me...Me.


    Where's @Thorton? See what he has to say about this travesty.

    Why is it his fault that you're 7' tall

    Why you complaining about something you don't use anyway?

    Big progress with them this weekend. All three seeking petting and human play now. <3
    Hoping to find them good homes soon -- Tank and Tot together as they're *very* close.
