Thank you for the suggestions. It's not very easy to get to the inside of the bumper on my van. The wheel arch is just to messy for me. : ) I'm thinking about the roof. It is high enough that most people don't notice it. I just need to get some of the gaffer's tape to hide the key. I've even think I might place two or three fake ones on there as a diversion.

Thank you for the hitch safe suggestion. I didn't know about those. Unfortunately my vehicle does not have a hitch and I can't spare the money to install one right now. I will keep it mind. : )
I don't want to put behind the license plate either. I was considering using the cards someplace that would hide the key without using the undercoating. I would never be able to reach under the car to retrieve it. I will have figure out a good hiding place I can reach without bending too much. : )
Hidden Spare Car Key for Emergencies
Thanks for sharing your idea. I think it is great. I think your idea would be especially helpful for teen drivers too. After reading this I had a small light bulb moment. I have saved old gift cards, plastic coupon cards and those plastic ad cards sent by a certain cable company. Some are thin enough so that two could be stacked. Cut out a hole the size of a flat key then place it on the other card. Tape them together with a thin transparent tape. Then tape it to a hiding place with the key in the cutout with the uncut card against the gaffer's tape. The key would be camouflaged so maybe it would be overlooked by a thief. Any suggestions now on where the best place to hide the key for someone who is disabled and needs easy access to the key?

I think I will have give up the acorns and pecans to the squirrels. My husband tried the pellet gun method you suggest. Didn't slow them down one bit. : ( I guess here in Dixie the squirrels rule.
Thanks. That is a solution that might help on the oak trees but the pecans trees are to close to telephone lines and a neighbor's fence. Not so sure the neighbor's wandering cat would fair very well with the pepper spray though. : )
The neighbor's cats don't have much luck in capturing any of the squirrels. Probably more cats is not going fair well either. More cats might make the dogs in the neighborhood happier though. : )
We had hopes of a hawk helping get rid of the squirrels but there are just too many squirrels and not enough hawks. I counted 14 of the rodents in my front yard one year.

I remember from elementary school lessons that Native Americans made flour from acorns. Thanks for jogging that memory. : ) We have two oaks of different types in our yard. I would love to be able to try making acorn flour. I won't have a chance to even gather the nuts. The squirrels get them before the nuts fall off the trees. We haven't gotten any pecans from our trees in years thanks to those little rodents. : (

I have had this kind of project in mind for months but I haven't found a suitable dresser yet. The local thrift stores have raised their prices and made finding a bargain more of a challenge. Thanks for sharing your project.

Thanks. I will probably upgrade at the end of support for Windows 7, but my experiences with upgrading older laptops to Windows 10 did not fair well. Microsoft is limiting the number of component drivers they are supporting and not all things work as well as they did in Windows 7. I reverted all but 1 Windows 7 laptop and 2 Windows 8 laptops after upgrading them to Windows 10.
Fix Up an Old Laptop!
It is always wonderful to see someone else refurbish a laptop or PC and give it new life. I found 2 Fujitsu laptops at a thrift shop for $5 each. Neither would boot or show signs that the screens were working. I found 2 laptop bodies without a screen assembly on eBay for $50 each and took a chance. I removed to screen assemblies on the thrift shop laptops and installed them on the eBay bodies, switched out a few parts that were missing and I now have 2 i5 CPU laptops with 4GBs each of Ram. Both are currently running Windows 7 beautifully. I used Windows 7 because the Product Codes were still intact and I still prefer it to Windows 10. These 2 laptops are my best refurbs so far. One is used for games including Steam games. The other is going to be used as a Plex server. This Fujitsu mode...

This Fujitsu model originally sold for over $600 so I consider these to be a fantastic deal.Keep up the good work! and Thank you for sharing.
Fantastic! Thanks for sharing your creation. How heavy is it? I helped my daughter create another cosplay prop years ago but it is too heavy to carry to long at a convention. If this works out to be significantly lighter I will be crafting a new prop!
