Damn Squirrels

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

They might be cute sometimes, but squirrels are just a pain in the ass. They made my shitlist when they started stripping my peach tree and now they're making a mess of my front yard.

I have a huge oak tree in my front yard that just started growing acorns. The little furry bastards seem to love the acorns and are littering my front lawn with shells and little branches. Since the acorns are way out at the tips of the branches they have to crawl out there and typically break the branches while trying to get the nuts.

It doesn't look that bad in the pictures, but in real life it looks awful. On Monday I was doing some yard work and I watched 4 squirrels in opposite corners of the tree all going to town on the acorns. I tried shooting at them with my little plastic pellet gun, but it wasn't accurate enough, I couldn't hit any of them. Don't worry, it wouldn't have done any damage to them, probably, but that's a chance I was willing to take. I tried to take some video of them in the act but every time I get out there with a camera they all seem to disappear.

I beg to differ.

Be glad you don't have a crabapple tree! Those little furry bastards go to town on that, what a mess they leave!

Are you insinuating that I'm a crotchety old lady who would enjoy the company of your old lady neighbor?

I am! You can talk about your acorn mess and she can bitch about how the geese poop in the backyard she hasn't set foot in since 2001. ;)
