The Mole Trap Part 2

A bucket? Seriously. You're going to trap a mole with a bucket?

Well, it turns out he wanted the neighbors and dog walkers to know that there was a trap UNDER the bucket and therefore labeled it. And he didn't quite understand that if someone hadn't been told there was an actual trap underneath that it looked as though the bucket was said trap.

Well, the bucket didn't seem to help trapping a mole anyway. He took it down a few days ago but yesterday actually caught himself a little yard diggin' mole. Those things are not cute. Those paddle-like paws that seem to come out of their neck. Yuck.

Let's hope our yard doesn't invite any more vermin over.

The Mole Trap Part 1

My husband...He's a funny guy. He's a hard working guy. He's a determined guy.

It's that time of year again where the moles are taking up residence in our lawn to eat the little grubby grubs that also live there. Seems like a good situation except for all those holes and mounds the moles create. One thing the hubs is insane about is the lawn. He owns three lawnmowers, and edger, and a weed wacker.

The other night the hubs came inside and told me he had set a mole trap-heads up.

The next morning I took the dog for a walk.
