Who You Gonna Call?

Who You Gonna Call?


Living close to nature…actually closer than we used to, nature keeps shrinking because of development. Ok, we have some woods around us. We have deer, coyotes, fox, rabbits, tigers…Just, wanted to see if you were reading.

Actually, we did have a neighbor’s cat that I had to constantly chase off the deck. It got kind of annoying. Haven’t seen it for a while. Of course, neither has anybody else.

My wife got annoyed because I let a moth in the house the other night and we couldn’t catch it and the damn thing wouldn’t fly into the light. She made a big deal of it. That’s because I let it in and not her.

Once or twice we had a mouse get in. You would think the world was ending according to her. A little peanut butter in a trap and…SNAP! Always a good sound.

Anyway, I have a comeback for her complaints about any bug or rodent that ever gets into the house again. That’s thanks to what happened in Thailand the other night.

In case you didn’t see, an elephant busted through a kitchen wall looking for food. Its head was hanging right there above the sink. It looked like the way Wilma Flintstone did the dishes.

Come to think of it, the Flintstones used a lot of animals for appliances and household items. Birds for can openers and phonograph needles. A porcupine to scrub the dishes…If that show were on today, somebody would complain that they were abusing animals. It would be hard to point out to these people these were cartoons but, I’m not here to go into how much the intelligence level is shrinking.

What do you do if you have an elephant in your house? Is there a service you can call?
