Yesterday's Big Event

Yesterday being Squirrel Appreciation Day, I took some peanuts out in the back yard for the little tree-rats.
Once I got four or five of them hanging around, I told them how much I appreciated all the hard work they do keeping my apple tree from producing anything even remotely usable in a pie.

Then, while they were busy with their nuts, I let the dog out on them to see if we could help with their overpopulation problem.

The squirrels all got away and stood on the limbs of the oaks in the back yard laughing at us and flipping us the squirrel-bird, because the dog is older than dirt and can't run more than a few feet without falling over.

I told the dog it was about time to take him out behind the shed and "Old Yeller" his ass. He didn't seem too impressed. He knows no one will say shit like that when Mrs B is around unless they've got a quick exit handy and good health insurance.
He just strolled back into the house, curled up in my spot on the couch and went back to licking his balls.

I have a great squirrel Boo-Ya recipe if you're ever interested. Couple little critters, couple hours of simmer time makes a pretty good meal! :)

"Old Yeller" his ass. That had me laughing out loud and I'm still snickering. Great line.

Now next time have your 22 ready and practice your firing at moving targets. When the neighbors come out, act as confused as they are.

ROTFLMAO! And that silenced .22 works wonders...

His squirrel-chasing days are behind him, but he still gives it a shot.

I know how he feels some days.

Old NFO has the right idea. Wait until they are gathered around the trough and zap them from the fringes to the center.
