The Crows Ate Our Toys

Well, the crows have been at it again. They have nearly destroyed our Max Liquidators, damn them! They have also poked holes in three balls and I suspect that they may be responsible for biting the head off a dinosaur and stealing some random tools out of our shed.

See how nice those new Max Liquidators look? We have an orange one, a green one, and a tiny red one with a frog on it.

The crows pecked off all of the foam and left the foam bits floating in the kids pool. See how awful they look now? If you look really closely you can see the hole in the ball.

Oh, and I failed to post about how they poop bombed my sandals about 2 weeks ago. I had forgotten them out on our massively huge deck. The only spot covered in crow crap was about a square foot area with my sandals in the middle. The crows must have walked right on over and squatted on my poor sandals.

I have now decided to keep a loaded and pumped super soaker in the dish rack beside the kitchen sink. The kitchen window opens onto the back deck. If I had hooks, I’d hang it over the window or back door like some crazed redneck.

I’m ready for you!

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

    No doubt about it. You’re turning into a crazed redneck.

    HEY! Leave the crazed rednecks alone. We prefer shotguns anyhow. 🙂

    Well, we used to have a crow problems when I was a kid until my dad (from Nebraska) took his pellet gun, shot one, and let it lay for about 3 days. We didn’t have any more probems for a loooong time, from the neighbors either come to think of it. Now as an adult, I don’t think I could do it. The PNW must have softened me up or something.
