Laura makes ASCII art, using MS Notepad. (Since 1998). She is currently exploring adding colour to the plain text to make postcards.


This year we have a family of crows as backyard neighbours. They make pretty good neighbours too. I've seen less other birds around, but there are still plenty of them coming to the birdbaths and looking for a spot at the side of the pond to sit and drink the water.

One really nice thing about having the crows around is the lack of squirrels. Too bad the chipmunks don't leave too. (The chipmunks are digging tunnels under the brick path of the garden and causing it to sink in patches). I'm not a big fan of rodents so having less of them around suits me very well.

I've created a few ASCII art crows myself. I like to put them with a scarecrow, to give them some context. I don't think of the crows as something occult, maybe mysterious. Others have created ASCII art with crows looking a little scarier, like the crow and the skull below.

      I never said the crows hurt the squirrels. They just chase them away. Now the squirrels don't show up any more. They must know this is a crow area and they keep away.

      A lot of people here, in the city especially, love squirrels too. I don't understand it. There are too many squirrels, raccoons, skunks, chipmunks and other scavenger type animals around. They can be destructive and dangerous. I don't understand people who encourage them and feed them even.

      Wow, that's...a lot of WORK!

      I didn't realize crows would wipe out squirrels. Bummer. We like squirrels. Not that we have any out here in the desert, except ground squirrels, but still.

      Of course, it helps that we don't have a garden to worry about.

      Voted Up and a Bunch.
