One night I even got the baby monitor and set it in a crepe myrtle by his favorite bush. I fixed a bucket right beside it so that it would fall if he came scouting, and I would hear it through the monitor (with the receiver set by the bed). However, when Cecil heard thunder during the night, he woke me up, and I had to bring the monitor in. I might have had a hard time explaining to the kids why this device got wet hanging outside in the tree. Of course, this varmint made his rounds after I moved the monitor.
Part II You know how hard it is for me function without sleep. Well, last night, I did hourly checks of the yard armed with my shovel, flashlight, and cell phone. I slept off and on in the recliner between my hunts until 5:00 this morning. That pesky creature must have gotten the word that I was mad and looking for him because he did not show up. WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE:ONE OR MORE ARMADILLOS TEARING AND ROOTING UP MY YARD. A $50.00 REWARD IS BEING OFFERED.
I am looking forward to posting a picture of Babs & Her Varmint-feet pointed toward the sky!
