My sister Meg has a private blog. She is hilarious and this kind of goodness is meant to be shared with the world. Not just a few "invited guests". I understand her reasons for going private, and respect them.
I got special permission to steal this post for your viewing pleasure. The videos are hilarious.
You might want to pee first.
I am also announcing winners for my Big Bloggy Reveal Giveaway at the bottom. Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who entered.
But hey, there are no losers. Everyone wins today with video goodness like this...enjoy!
Ladies and Gentleman,
it's Groundhog Day.
After discovering Punxatawny Phil's nasty little lair under my deck out back, I filled his hole with water and flushed him out. I was certain that the arrival of the 4 ft snake and the completion of our fence would keep Lil' Phil from returning to my garden for lunch, but...
I was wrong.
He is back.
I saw him today, making his way across my yard. Headed for my garden! "He was robbing me, raping me! Rooting through my rutabaga, raiding my arugula and ripping up the rampion, my champion! My favorite!..."
I'm sure he just laughed at my feeble attempt to keep him out with a wire fence. I just assumed that after all the lettuce he's been helping himself to this week, that he'd eventually be too fat to fit through the wire holes. Well, he's almost too fat.
I'd had enough.
So I caught him.
And as a special treat for the 3 of you out there who still read this blog, I give you video coverage.
Grab some popcorn, and enjoy the show.
(the videos are about 1 min each)
Attempt #1: Meg's butt tries to catch a groudhog (but mostly Meg's butt....my trash is not really that big, Reese was holding the camera, ok?)
Attempt #2: It's in the bag...er...bucket
I LOVE Reese's, "Get him, mommy!" It reminds me of the scene at the end of Monster's Inc. when Randal gets stuck in a trailer and the Hillbillies chase him around, bopping him on the head with a frying pan screaming, "Git him, Momma! Git that ugly gator!"
Reese wants to "keep him as a pet, and name him Buttercup."
Quincy wants the "snake to come eat him up in the cage."
I want to pop him on the head with a shovel, because I think it would make me extra cool if I could say that I killed it, but as you can see from the video, I'm not exactly tough.
One thing is certain, Lil' Phil has got to go.
I have something very special planned for him. Very special. I promise it will not disappoint.
Until then, I'll be singing, "Don't you ever never ever mess around with my greens!"
To be continued....
I cannot WAIT for part 2...I know how it all ends, but YOU will have to wait!!
In the meantime I want to announce the winners of the Starbucks and Borders Gift Cards
