I hate the little buggers, but I have a weird fascination of killing them just before they bite me.

Cardinal bar sounds like something they sell at Busch Stadium!

I think I got my start as the squirrel lady back when I was a young kid. I brought home every stray I came across until my Mom threatened to give me to gypsies. She shot herself in the foot saying I was so rotten even they probably didn't want me, which was a poor move on her part.

Can you imagine if someone brought her cougars?

You were such a rotten kid that your mother shot herself?!!

Wow. I thought that i was a bad kid. You take the cake.

I am lucky, my kids fdo nto make me want to shot myself ever. However I have had fantasies about shooting certain boyfriends or boyfriend wannabes.

Me too, but too often I wait to long and only end up making the bite worse (if you kill them before they suck their toxin back out, the welt is bigger and itchier)

My mom threatened to sell us to the gypsies too! We thought she was nuts or it was just a southern Indiana thing..... apparently she wasn't the only one leveling this threat! Of course I tried that with my own boys when they were young... they just thought i was nuts, too.

My wifes mother used "We will give you to the Indians. Then when they went on a trip out west and visited a reservation where Indians were in costume, she was terrified and screamed for hours thinking "This is it"

If I made this threat, my kids would say "Cool, I will go pack"

However I may plead guilty to occaisionally making fun of 1dwd2s (particularly of her propensity of running down deer), but she is not an old lady if I remember correctly. When she gets old I will stop making fun of her. If she becomes our local suirrel lady, I will bring her meals on wheels (if I can still drive by then).

Ticks are dangerous. Gave my sister Limes disease. It is a horrible disease and somtimes makes life completely miserable. Some days she is wracked by pain all day and cannot move. Some days she cannot see. Some days she has no balance and walks into walls and doorways all the time. I am not sure what all else, but when it flares, it is debilitating. Sometimes it does nto effect her much if at all, but the drugs that she takes to control it always take their toll.

They cannot make it go away. She has had it for a long time 10 or 20 years.

Ticks scare the snot out of me. If you ever get bit, I woudl just go get massive antibiotics right away. If you do not kill Limes immediately, it can never be killed.
The prospect of you making fun of me is what keeps me going. Please don't stop. I have a propensity for the ridiculous and it deserves to be honored in a fitting manner that you seem to have mastered.

And your fondness for the squirrel lady came through. I think she'd be honored too.

Hey, I am being called ridiculous?!!.

OK that is better than what my kids call me. Ridiculous is a step up. I am improving.

LOL.... you have much better weapons at your disposal than mere guns. A father with a sense of humor and appreciation for the absurd is a powerful weapon... Use it wisely, Jedi Master.

Exactly. I'd wake up to find the suitcases packed and them all waiting by the door. They would think it a great adventure waiting to happen. Or they'd dream of getting in with one of the Casino tribes and being rich. Either way, wouldn't be an effective threat around here!
