I have four holes in the side of my house. They were put there by a woodpecker, or by woodpeckers.
One hole is getting pretty big. And the pecking is more like loud knocking in my bedroom and bathroom. Wakes me up real quick.
I know it is a woodpecker because when it's making that god-awful racket I have gone around there and as soon as I clear the corner of the house it flies away. Last time it flew to a telephone pole and latched onto that.
I am going to buy me a BB gun, BB/Pellet gun or a slingshot (slingshot is cheapest) and use that bird for target practice. Slingshot is probably safer, considering there are other houses and people around here.
I might just decide to do some rabbit hunting with it, although one of the guns would probably be better for that, rabbits are fast. Rabbit stew, yum.
I have once again been awake all night, unintentionally. Found out the template I was using for this blog didn't support the 'Read more...' function so had to replace it and modify the new one to work like I want it. Reinstall most of the widgets, resize the template & text, change colors, etc.
Brandi (my biggest dog) is getting anxious this morning. She has way too much energy for a geezer like me. It's starting to get light outside so I'll take them for a walk shortly so she can burn a little of the energy off. They both need to lose a few pounds, anyway.
