The day Steve loaned me Nutsy the Squirrel!

     The other day I could have utilized the talents of Steve Smith's employee Nutsy-the-Wire-Walking-Squirrel.  It really wasn't necessary in the long run because it just didn't matter whether the bulbs were dead----as the whole installation was "Nutsy."

     Outdoor electrical installations have to meet special requirements including wire rated for outdoor use and protection from physical damage.  They did mount it to a pretty sturdy post though.  Changing the bulbs would be an adventure I guess.

     Nutsy did show up to help a little later on when it was time to test the outside water faucets.  Better late than never I guess----I don't know how Steve puts up with it.  He got right up on top of the handle and then proceeded to "leak" all over me.  NOT too professional.

Charlie,

You did a good post this time. That is the first time you have written something that Nutsy found amusing. Generally he thinks you are crass and insulting to rodents.

You boys need to settle down, anything that Nutsy has confided to Steven is confidential.  Charles, I personally think your fascination with rodents is amusing, generally, as is your crass-i-ness.  Very educational, and I am finally getting the Nutsy innuendos. Give me time and I will be taking photos to share.  be good  cw

Roy, good help is indeed difficult to find.

Steve, it is important to never let the sun set without being crass and insulting toward rodents:)

Cheryl, you mean to say you are going to start ganging up on me?:)

Charles, did you put that handle on that faucet just for a blog?  It's funny one way or the other!!

Charles,

I think it is interesting that people are picking up on your infatuation, perhaps a fetish, with rodents.

Great lightning rod for the home and electrical system.

Posted by Mike Parks, Inspector (Residential Building Inspectors) about 10 years ago

Barbara, not a prop:)  Steve would do that though:)

Steve, I beg your pardon-----I am NOT the one known as the "Squirrel Whisperer"

Mike, perhaps a whole house surge protector is in order?:)

Awe, that little squirrel on the spigot is cute Charlie   :)   (and an adventure, to say the least, to change that bulb, hahaha)

Kara, it is so Martha Stewart isn't it?

Sean, thanks, always good when you can laugh at a squirrel:)

I'm staying out of this one.. I've already been threatened.

Since you seem to have turned over a new leaf as far as nasty blogs, I was speaking with Nutsy and some of his relatives today and I think they all want to join AR and subscribe to your blog. Hope that is okay with you if you get some new, high quality, readers.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) about 10 years ago

Kevin, I can assure you that any threats from the Squirrel Whisperer are just that----whispered----and of no consequence.

Steve, I will now be going back to my "old ways"
