Squirrels Gone Wild

I have always liked squirrels. Cute, furry, and so peaceful. Now I am beginning to think that they are truly of the rodent family and I am beginning to share a mindset not unlike those who hunt them, kill them, and eat them.

Okay, maybe not the 'eat' part but it's getting easier to imagine it.


This is my grill cover, or what's left of it.

This is video evidence of the culprit.



Opal has taken it upon herself to protect us from these vermin. After all, this entire house and yard belong to her and her ALONE!


"My YARD."

"My Chewing Stump"


"My Leaf"

"My Lookout Stump"

And most importantly...


"MY PINECONES!"


"GOT IT SQUIRRELS?"


Now outfitted with the proper "squirrel fighting" attire, Opal stands guard.


"I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!"


"Yo Quiero Taco SQUIRREL!"


Squirrel fighting is hard work. We didn't get any today, but there is always tomorrow!

I'll trade all your squirrels for the 6 keg sized fearless raccoons that like to sit on my patio and eat rotten BigMacs.

We get squirrels, raccoons, and the odd skunk. Oh, to be surrounded by nature.

squirrels are evil hippie commie punks who are always scheming to steal your snaks tell opal to watch her back theyre like gangsters theres never only one.

if that one in the video gets into your grill i suggest a 'medium rare' setting.
