Crazy night.....

  1. As if the weird dream wasn't enough, my reality has been rather comical tonight.

    During the Grammy's, all 3 of us, in different parts of the house, hear a loud thud. None of us can really specify where we heard it from. We look out every window, but notice nothing weird. We chalk it up to wind, maybe it threw some random thing up against the side of the house or something. Happened a couple of times when we had all that wind a few days ago.

    Later, I go down in the basement to start a load of laundry before I go to bed. The dog is with me, and over the filling washer and tumbling dryer, I can hear the dog wimpering. I turn to see him trying to get behind some boxes stacked in a corner. He starts darting about, and I see a flash of a bushy tail peek out from behind a large box.

    I assume my typical "EEK! A SQUIRREL!" pose on top of the washer, and scream the most blood curdling screams at my hubby upstairs, whom I'm hoping hasn't gone out to have his nightly cigarette yet.

    He comes down, investigates, peels me off the washer, and sends me and the dog upstairs. Buddy and I sit patiently in the kitchen where we hear several odd grunts from my hubby. While he emerges victorious, he informs me that squirrels bleed quite heavily.

    Says he need to go have that cigarette and then he'll clean it up.

    He's not outside for a full minute when he comes back in to inform me that that odd thump we heard earlier must have been a vehicle hitting our house. Tire tracks going up the neighbors driveway veer off and hit the front right corner of our house.

    So, I never thought it would happen, but tonight I uttered the words "clean up the blood before the cops get here."

    They just left, and I'm going to bed. Somehow, I feel that no matter what happens tomorrow, it will not compare. :chuckle

    HOW WAS YOUR NIGHT?

    Heather, I hope the driver of the vehicle was not trying to avoid hitting the squirrel.
    Do you all have Geico insurance commercials in Ohio??

    Yes, I've seen them!

    Odd thing is, this is the second time in less than a year that we've had a squirrel in our house. The first one ate right through the kitchen screen and made himself at home while we were gone.

    They make this barking, clucky sound. Absolutely horrid.

    They are horrid little creatures. We had one stuck in our fireplace one time. I had to beg hubby not to get rid of it by starting a fire! I thought after a few days it found its way out but a week later I came out to the kitchen to make my morning coffee and it was on my table eating some cereal the kids left out! EEEW! I opened the front door and it eventually ran out. I spent the day cleaning everything with Lysol!

    I'm glad the little bugger is gone. Death to all squirrels!

    Heard a loud thud one night when I was cooking supper, now ex hubby in the family room watching TV, kids playing video games in Andy's room, we're all OK so we go outside to see what happened. It was just dusk, go around thecorner of the house and there is a turkey with a closed head injury (from flying into the side of the house!), he's weaving like a drunk. Look up at the side of the house, he lefta big greasy spot where he hit it. In a few minutes he flew off, I guess no one told him that turkeys have no night vision. The next day a house up the street had a big greasy spot on it too!

    What a night!

    Strange that someone would hit your house and then just drive off. Did you see the neighbors at all?

    So you're a kitty killer (from what I've seen here on the board ) and your hubby is a squirrel killer? What a family!

    LMAO!

    Well, the cops knocked on the neighbors door because they were obviously coming up their drive. Her car was in the street but the lights were off and nobody answered.

    After the cops left, hubby was finishing his cigarette (acually probably a second or third) and her dog started barking and her heard her yell "SHUT UP" from inside the dark house.
