    Feral animals are terrorizing me!

    Last night I was sitting on a chair in my garage, playing my banjo, and enjoying a long island iced tea.
    Without warning, a bigass rabbit runs out of the darkness into my garage and stops a few feet from me...almost gave me a heart attack!

    Twice in the past I have had to get squirrels out my garage that wander in there to hide pizza bones...both times they jumped at me, climbed up my back and onto my head, then jumped down and ran out the big door.

    Have you ever felt squirrel toe nails on your melon?...well I have and it isn't pleasant.

    Now Im all paranoid about being in the garage and feel that I have to keep alert at all times when Im out there.

    Is this crazy?

    So its not crazy to feel a little paranoid being in my garage. The wife called me paranoid because I said that I feel like I need a broom within arms reach now.

    Whats next...bats in my hair?

    The neighborhood has tried the pellet gun cleansing, but they keep spawning in large numbers because of a pizza joint dumpster. I find pizza bones in my mail box, on the work van tucked by the hood..basically anywhere they can stash them.

    These are black squirrels with pointy ears...the brown ones don't behave this way.

    I would tell you that poison peanuts would help solve the squirrel problem BUT there are drawbacks using a poison in a city setting.

    Namely other people's pets. That and the PETA people that would crap down their legs seeing dead squirrels.

    You could always live trap them, where others can't see the trap.

    Oh boy, insane squirrels, banjo, the privacy of a garage.....can you say Ned Beatty, Burt Reynolds, Deliverance....squeal like a pig boy....
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....
