Damn. GuyK said that they are carnivores and cannibals. I'm disappointed. I had hoped you'd see one squirrel feasting on another.

What? No squirrel chili? You disappoint me, Tennessee Jed.

Seriously, it is Nature's hungry rapaciousness that keeps the world from being buried in the flesh of the dead. Think on it: Even Fred and Bob will happily start chewing on your remains if (Gawd forbid) they found you decompos mentis on your kitchen floor. Screw the kibble!

Sleep tight, indeed.

All the damn bugs... Now you got me itchin' all over...

Didn't ya ever bbq a squirrel? If done right by someone who is keen on which parts to throw away, they're not half bad. Best if you pop them through the head if you're gonna cook 'em, unless you like squirrel brains, which some folks do...

The bugs and the worms -- that's the real reason I want to be cremated...

Here the smaller ones stand in line but the deed is over, bar the bones, in a day or two.

That last paragraph reminds me of my senior quote in my high school yearbook, "Always have your holes pre-dug."

:-D

I'm glad the pee shooter with a magnifyin' glass meets your needs and I'm also glad that you're not tryin' to gun but 'em in the head to take 'em out with a shovel so you can grill 'em. Shootin' 'em is easier, and, I must say, more entertaining. Mount bayonets and all that gets to be a drag after you've climbed a tree.

Write more when you get two kills with one shot. Hopefully one of the kills won't be you. If it is, please call a "do over". Then, well, never mind the write more part. Just run from the critters and zombie ants.

PS: I'd have throwed a hefty bag over all the shit, pulled it tight at the top and gave 'em all a Viking funer'l.

To each his own... Hope it was good coffee.

Note to self: If you find a dead cat in your backyard, it is better to bury it than to contain it within three layers of trash bag and place it in the trash receptacle--especially when pickup is next Thursday, and *most* especially when it is June in Arizona.

Whoo-ee! I moved that can *way* down the street and still caught whiff of the stench. WD-40 has *nothing* on the penetrating power of dead kitty.

I got this one for my FIL for Father's Day. He's forever battling with squirrels, coons, muskrats, or whatever.
