Why are you reporting this puzzle?

I have been forced to wear a cunning disguise, in order to avoid the unwanted attentions of the super-powerful, super-secret, super-vindictive society known to one and all (but known to no-one) as "THE TADPOLINATTI"!
The other day, I just happened to mention them in passing, and now I must tread very carefully indeedy.....
BTW, I am the one in the middle, in case you were wondering.....

The benefits of Tadpole Wine reach far and wide, across the borders of time and space.

It took sillychick this long to notice the name? Has she been into the tadpole wine all this time?

Found it! Now i just have to fix the jumpseat for Wicca.

Elfie

As I said - you can have my spare one if you don't find it....

I pulled out my costume from 5 years ago and dusted it off. Now where is my broom? Wicca and I are ready to party.

Sam Snead made a hole-in-one with every club in the bag except, of course, his putter. He set the course record on 164 different golf courses. And he once said, “The only reason I played pro golf was so I could afford to go hunting and fishing.”

TheLittleBlueHat

I have installed Walmart Wicca Whistles.

Elfie

They had big troubles with reindeer being killed by trains in Sweden - then they put up loud-speakers along the trail and played Swedish pop-music - it kept the reindeer from the trail areas...

patsquire

Well I hope hi-tech works, because lo-tech never accomplished much. That's cool about the elk crossing. Somewhere down here they built a deer tunnel under a highway, but the deer wouldn't use it. They even tried luring them through it with bait, but with no success. I can't believe they thought it would work. A deer never sees anything but sky and trees overhead. And BIRDS ....... like wicca ........ bombing them from above!

Deer whistles come in pairs and if you blow in them you'll see why. One makes an audible whistle, but the other one is supersonic. I don't know which sound the deer hear, but dogs and all kinds of other animals hear one or the other.

When a herd of deer crosses a road they usually do it single file, and when the lead deer starts across they all follow without fail, which leads to accidents when a driver sees a deer cross and naturally follows it with his eyes, and the others come out while he's not looking at the road. However, this happened to me once and as I got closer the herd heard (hee-hee) the whistles and actually split the line, some going on across but the rest doubling back into the woods. So those little things really do work!

For only $14.99 at your local Canadian Tire store, a set of two Bell Deer Whistles.

It was just for British Columbia, psquirt, and they were installed on a curved section of highway where neither deer nor drivers were aware of each other. Evidently the motion sensor is triggered when a deer wanders onto the road and a traffic warning flashes to the approaching driver to slow down and watch for deer. In the Banff area, a concrete concourse has been constructed to allow animals to cross the highway safely and the elk use it regularly...it is so funny to see the heads and antlers sticking up over the guardrail as the elk stroll across...sans people. Now they are trying to figure out how to stop the trains from killing grizzlies crossing the tracks.

I've never heard of deer whistles but they sound like a really cost effective way to cut down the slaughter of our wildlife and the damage and destruction to drivers and vehicles.

I am ready for Halloween! Now who is having a party?

Gemmeee, the stat you heard sounds like it must have been for only 1 state or province. I used to live in Pennsylvania and the average there is about 60,000 deer collisions per year! In fact, I found this: "According to the (US) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are about 1 million car accidents with deer each year that kill 200 Americans, cause more than 10,000 personal injuries, and result in $1 billion in vehicle damage."

People have been trying things for many years, to keep the deer away from the roads. Once in PA they erected steel stakes along the roads in forests, with mirrors at the top angled to reflect cars' headlights into the woods. The hope was that the deer would freeze at the flash of light until the car had gone by. As with all other known attempts, it didn't work. I've hit two deer and they were both in suburban neighborhoods. One got up and ran off, but the other was a goner.

DEER WHISTLES! Those little things that glue onto your front bumper. THEY WORK!

I always thought they were a gimmick, but I once had an Illinois State Trooper who worked as a night foreman in one of our factories. He had them on his cruiser, so I asked about them. He said, "Two years ago State Troopers hit 53 deer while on duty. Then we installed these on every cruiser. Last year we hit a total of 3 deer!" So I put them on our cars and the two deer I've hit were BOTH when my deer whistles had been knocked off the car by me stupidly plowing into snow banks!

Elfie

So are ours here on the island gemmiee...

thanks for the story Patsquire - it's wonderful...

gemstone

I guess deer are party animals...they NEVER obey the rules...and generally ignore the crosswalks!

JM_Cookie

Why don't they move that "Deer Crossing" sign to a place with good visibility?

lelabugosi

SAVE THE TADPOLES!
SAVE THE HALF-DEER!

gemstone

Weird good thing...on yesterday's news they said that about 18,000 animals (mostly deer, moose) are killed on our highways each year. In one particularly lethal section they are setting up two sensors that detect an animal on the highway and warn oncoming traffic to slow down and avoid collision. Yay for people who care!

lelabugosi

Helloo, Mr.Biscuit.....have a dead carrot.......far better than Mr.Squirt's half-deer (which would no doubt be the rear half).......

JM_Cookie

He looks good to me . . too bad about the hair

patsquire

Road kill! In the small town of Simsbury, Connecticut where I lived during the '90s people sometimes hit deer with their cars (as people do everywhere) and the deer usually dies. When the police responded to the accident one particular sergeant would come by and pick up the dead deer. Why? Because every spring he held the "Simsbury Road Kill Dinner" to raise funds for the Police Widows and Orphans Fund!

It was a grand banquet featuring the road kill deer, which he hung in his detached unheated garage to age all winter, and also many, many kinds of exotic meat. Most of the meat came from hunters who traveled far and wide, and brought it home for this banquet. Moose, bear, elk, mule deer, antelope and wild boar (delicious) were common, but there was also the occasional alligator, 'possum, 'coon, armadillo, rattlesnake, coyote and porcupine. And of course the bird hunters brought everything from little tiny doves to full size turkeys and everything in between. Plus he would send away and buy small amounts of strange foreign meats such as kudu, elephant, kangaroo, etc.

But the staple was road kill venison and an endless supply of freshly boiled potatoes. It was a resounding success! I contributed pheasants one year and doves another. He said he almost always recovered only half a deer from the accidents. The car would impact either the front part or the hindquarters, ruining it, and the other half would be intact. (You learn some weird things during a long life!)

Oh! Yummmie!

You would like this place. It's my favorite restaurant.

I only eat roadkill. Same principle as Fruitarians. It's already dead.

wicca

Bacon gives me the toots.

thecolonel

Did someone mention food?

Elfie

DON'T eat the food of the animals - eat BACON...

patsquire

"...hold aloft a virgin carrot, freshly picked under the light of the full moon...."

Fruitarian philosophy ~ ~ ~ A carrot ripped from the ground in the fullness of life has, in fact, been murdered. MURDERED!!! Fruitarians eat only earth's bounty which has grown, ripened and fallen from the tree or vine and is, in fact, already dead. SEE: Four Weddings And A Funeral (1994).

TheLittleBlueHat

Boo! Boo!!! BOO!!!! ... it's not working .....

(... hiding behind flower-thingy in the garden ... guarded by 2 huge black cats, an umbrella from Uncle Bzzzzz, and a scarecrow ... yikes ... I just looked at Wicca's latest puzzle ... that's not going to work ... ... I hope she doesn't recruit the evil seagull that dive-bombed Juneee at the seaside and stole her sandwich ... perhaps I should just hole up in the fallout shelter under the blue house ... )

gemstone

♪♬♫ Call me irresponsible...call me...♫♬♪

wicca

I find white brocade curtains irresistible!

TheLittleBlueHat

I think "Toot-toot" means "Goodbye" sort of ... like when Roger says "Toodle-pip"

Elfie

which means hehehe....

lelabugosi

I just heard "Toot-Toot".........

TheLittleBlueHat

She just said "Caw caw" as she flew... or maybe it was "Cackle cackle" ?

Elfie

Is THAT enough - are you sure you didn't hear her giggle.. ????

TheLittleBlueHat

I just said "Boo!", and she flew away.

Elfie

But what have you done to her???

TheLittleBlueHat

Wicca wouldn't dare. She's afraid of me ...

gemstone

CURTAIN! Watch out for wicca!!!

wicca

I won't be performing for a while. I am on lockdown for pooping on the curtains.

TheLittleBlueHat

Gemmy, I have adjusted my pose so that it looks more like I am about to strangle someone and less like I have my thumbs in my ears. I don't know whether ghosts have tongues because I'm actually just a hat and a white brocade curtain.

gemstone

I can see why I mistook your Aunt Karla for you...the family resemblance is very apparent. Will you be performing...someday...somewhere?

wicca

Yes....That's why they don't have a safety net.

gemstone

I hadn't realized that The Wallendas could actually fly.

wicca

You have heard of the Flying Wallendas haven't you? That is Aunt Karla rehearsing for their next show.

gemstone

Perhaps wicca is rehearsing for Cirque du Soleil?

I seem to be selling a lot of umbrellas lately........

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

Well, my precocious precious-pebble......it will actually run DOWN my nose....in which case I'll probably sneeze.......and probably cause a local shower in the village over which I am flying .......the strange event will probably, in all probability, be put down to an alien invasion.....

gemstone

If you drool now, Sir Winnie...will you drown when it runs up your nose? Just curious...

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

I sometimes drool, when Madame-of-the-Temple reads certain passages of her favourite novel.......

wicca

Crows have black tongues.....just thought everyone needed to know that. They drool too if something tastes really good...like scrambled eggs in butter.

gemstone

Well, it looks like you have your thumbs in your ears and would be waggling your fingers...sooo, one would naturally expect a tongue to be sticking out, too...but I've only ever seen ghosts with hollow mouths...are you saying ghosts do have tongues? Hee hee

TheLittleBlueHat

Ah, I see what you mean about half looped on Tad, Gemmy ...

But who says ghosts don't have tongues?

gemstone

Too bad ghosts don't have tongues! ;DDD

gemstone

I was thinking of "half-looped" more in connection of The Tad...but I guess that has more to do with SLOG than Sir Winnie...

TheLittleBlueHat

Sir Winnie has somehow managed to execute a half-loop ("a flight maneuver in which an aircraft pulls up in an inside loop but continues upside down in level flight in the direction from which it came") -- quite a feat for such a loopy loon.

I looked up "half-looped", and it is a lovely braided hairstyle. Perhaps Sir Winnie is sporting it under that helmet?

TheLittleBlueHat

Is this a friend of Wicca's?
http://www.jigidi.com/puzzle.php?id=580U5HP5

gemstone

Is that where the term "half-looped" originated?

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

I appear to have managed just half-a-loop!

TheLittleBlueHat

I think you are stuck in the middle of a loop-the-loop, Sir Winnie.

gemstone

I think you must be "down under"...visiting Kirsten, of course...

Surreal_Heidi

I used to get lost constantly.... until I got a GPS.

Sir_Wainthorpe_Bugosi

I think we are all lost........I know I am!

Elfie

No wicca - of course YOU were not lost - you knew where you were and are - didn't/don't you????

mrsmike2

:) LOLLLLLL

sweetlittleoldgranny

Happens to me all the time.....

wicca

That's me! I didn't know I was lost.

patsquire

Anybody lose a bird?

It's really important...

patsquire

Oops! Quite right you are Gemmmeeee! It's been so SLOW around here I completely forgot the spoonerism protocol.

"Nicky Relson redux................" indeed.

Shouldn't that be Nicky Relson?

♪♬♫ Take a look at this sunflower
Standing so tall
Isn't it pretty?
It started so small
But it kept growing
And it never stopped

'Cause it's just love water and sunshine that makes it so high
It's not looking down on me, it shows me the sky
'Cause it's just love water and sunshine that makes it so high
It's not looking down on me, it shows me the sky

I know that my sunflower
Will always be there
'Cause you can't unlearn what you’ve learned what you've learned it
It stays in the air
But I keep growing
And I guess I won't stop

'Cause it's just love water and sunshine that makes it so high
It's not looking down on me, it shows me the sky

When it's raining
On a cold lonely day
Remember the seeds that you planted won't just go away
They grow up through the night
And it'll be alright

So take a look at this sunflower
Standing so tall
Isn't it pretty?
It started so small
But it kept growing
And it never stopped

'Cause it's just love water and sunshine that makes it so high
It's not looking down on me, it shows me the sky
'Cause it's just love water and sunshine that makes it so high
It's not looking down on me, looking down on me, looking down on me ♫♬♪

Surreal_Heidi

Are you saying that LELABUG is behild the conspiracy to break off my front tooth?

Surreal_Heidi

No, we.... errrrr.... THEY didn't. No rocks involved. My dentist thinks it was cracked most of the way through for a while.

MrsBugosi

Lela has been spending his days in the garden - says he feels at home there......

TheLittleBlueHat

Perhaps flowery-thingy was Tadpollinated.

TheLittleBlueHat

The Tadpolinatti must have spiked the Jello with rocks.

Surreal_Heidi

Bananas, tangerine slices and raspberries. No pomegranates.

gemstone

A good thing cherries are out of season!

Surreal_Heidi

Sorry I was missing. I had an emergency root canal yesterday after one of my front teeth (#8) snapped off at the base while I was eating a bowl of Jello with fruit. That is a skill that few people can duplicate. Or care to try.

Elfie

Or he is so exhausted from his life from being a flower and getting no water that he has ..... ohhh what do we do????

gemstone

Maybe our great and glorious leader (NB...no capitals as I don't want to draw attention to him...) has gone underground to develop plans to rid the world of The Tadpolinatti.

Elfie

Wauwauwauwauwauuuuuuuuuuuu - anybody alive out there??

Elfie

Can't we just give it up? I don't understand it anyway.... my dictionaries don't make me any wiser.... (perhaps it's impossible anyway)........
