SPOILS OF WAR
LOOK AT THOSE CLAWS
Think about those digging indiscriminately in your garden----I AM NOT HAPPY!
This weekend began the Vienna Dilla War. Friday night---even facing a 4:45 alarm clock----we heard the first little monster at 10:30. We both jump out of bed---picture the Keystone Cops & you've got an idea of what we looked like trying to get flashlights, shoes, guns and GET OUT THAT DOOR. When I first saw the dilla in the garden, I ALMOST felt sorry for him--he was probably a teenage dilla. THEN I saw him stick his snout down in the garden and use those claws to begin throwing straw & dirt. FATAL MISTAKE! ONE DOWN!
At 12:30, I hear another one----I go look out to make sure and then wake BC up AGAIN. The rifle had jammed and he would not let me use his pistol. I have one of my own that I plan to get out! He shot--but wasn't sure. We spend the next 30 minutes looking under bushes trying to make sure he isn't bleeding to death in my flower bed.
The next night I don't hear anything until 5 AM ( MY ONE MORNING TO SLEEP A LITTLE LATER). This one must have heard us hitting the door and cocking the guns. HE RUNS OFF.
Last night he came back---I might have heard him about 4 and he might have come after I left to run at 5:10--but the damage is MAJOR. The worst it has been.
I am on a MISSION now! I have a trap set with a chute leading right into it! I plan to sleep on the couch and look out every 30 minutes. AND AFTER VICTORY---I plan to have a nice new handbag-
