I think there is a bird turf war going on on our roof. Over the last couple years, on several occasions, we have noticed a flurry of small swallow-like birds zipping outside our balcony, along with a few large crows. Last year I found a severed bird leg, and later a bird wing in our backyard. It seemed to escalate when I found a small decapitated bird head on our balcony.

Found another bird wing this year, and now yesterday a decapitated squirrel! A little worried what to expect next.

Did that with wasps one year. As we killed them we impaled them on toothpicks, lined them up and stuck them in the ground a la Vlad the Impaler. Didn't seem to work and in hindsight perhaps not the best idea as it seemed to attract more of them. Seemed like a good idea at the time but there may or may not have been alcohol involved.

Well, I didn’t mean literally “camp” in the downtown branch. Hopefully you knew that.

I mean, go to the main branch in Calgary. I wouldn’t expect anything useful to happen at a small branch. I had to deal with estate crap too, and it’s pointless. You think the RBC employee in the burbs can do anything? I go to The RBC downtown, the guy goes up to the 20th-whatever floor and comes back with my documents signed and completed. Better than messing around with a bunch of clueless, powerless minions.

You should stay inside. I think you’re next.

Did you leave the note? Seems like you probably skipped the note.

Leftover chopsticks from Chinese take-out through the carcass and embedded into the lawn and you've sent your message!

I’m convinced that Kijiji uses bots to keep you engaged with old ads. There’s just no way that this many people behave like this, set up times to meet and then completely ghost. I know there are a lot of #######s out there, but there is no way they’re all on Kijiji….
