Elliot Stabler and Giant Squirrels
Well, I'm just having a laid-back evening. Thought I'd do a little blogging before Law and Order. I love that show! Especially L&O: SVU. That Christopher Meloni is one sexy dude! I just love it when he roughs up the bad guys on the show. "Oooooo, Elliot! (shuddering in pleasure) Put me in handcuffs, please."

Huh hummm.

Changing topics.

Well, we finally got rid of the animal in our attic. If you don't remember me talking about it, we thought we had a raccoon up there, but one day my husband caught a glimpse of the intruder. Here's how it went.

"Dana, hand me the flashlight! I think I see him!"

I hand him a flashlight and hold the ladder steady while he crawls the rest of the way into the attic.


"I see him...I see him...oh wait...SHIT! That's one big mother!"

"What is it?" I yell, thinking that we have been invaded by bears or something.

"It's a squirrel!" his voice trickled down from up above.

"A squirrel?"

There was no way that what I had heard up in that attic was a squirrel. It had scratched through the ceiling in the kid's room twice leaving dime-sized holes that we had to patch up. Hell, one night I was sitting in bed watching Law and Order when, all of the sudden, something large went running across my ceiling and made the ceiling fan wobble. It had to have been a raccoon or a bear, I said.

Hubby comes down from the attic, all dusty, with a big smile on his face.

"I think I can catch him."

Well, we didn't end up catching the fat ol' thing, but we did run him out and board up the hole near the chimney where he was getting in. And he was rather big. Must have been from spending all winter in my attic with his nuts.

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
