Satan’s Minions

May 16, 2011


I have two who are dumbly relentless this year. They don’t eat a thing (yet…. give them time). They just pull up seedlings and lay them in the sun to wither. Yes, including four pepper plants, one even from a pot.

Digression starts here:

Like most states, North Carolina has a state mammal….. the grey squirrel. I guess some other states had already claimed the skunk, weasel, possum and Norwegian rat. (Is their state bird the starling?) I am now so proud of my own Georgia, as we have declared our state mammal the “Right Whale”. Don’t believe me? check it out yourself here.

How did states select these “official” species? I wonder if it was with a draft system life the NFL’s? If so who got to pick first? If you got last pick in reptiles, does that insure you a higher spot in the amphibian round?

Digression ends here

Actually, I need to add a couple of new ones to the squirrel army, so it is just as well that these are getting comfortable.

Don’t you agree?

(insert diabolical laughter)

    You know, these squirrels are probably smarter than you give them credit for, and they’re engaged in some sort of ingenious scientific experiment that you are scoffing at as stupidity…

      That’s what I fear most; rumor has it they patented the light saber before George Lucas ever thought of it- cost him millions too…
