i have 2 cats that are constantly slamming into windows following the chipmunks outside. over the summer i had a blackbird fly down my chimney and these 2 cats took off like a condor was after them, i laughed so hard i almost pissed myself. i've never seen such scared cats in my life. needless to say i closed the flue afterwards, and last night i lit the first fire of the year and filled the house with smoke lol. i think i'll just go buy one of those varment caps for the chimney.
The brick mason that rebuilt my chimney said he has never seen a strike to a chimney that didn't have the cap. As well as destroying chimney, it got all my electronics. But I also had trouble with birds so I had him put it back on. Insurance payed!!!
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
