a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Just When I Think I Have Seen It All...

the males on this place surprise me.  I don't think a woman could or would have done this.  Kawasaki's are good but they are not planes, tanks, nor water vehicles, or this one's not, anyway

This tale began when the deer and other varmints began decimating our garden.  The garden lays along the spring branch which runs into a pond, then overflows into the creek.  The males plotted and planned their attack.

Hubby is driving at break neck speeds, I'm sure.  He has Andrew holding a flashlight (the headlights were not reaching out far enough)...did I forget to say, this was all in the dead of night. 

When they chased the deer out of the garden, they failed to remember there's an outlet to the pond!  I find this strange because Hubby built the overflow.   Maybe in the excitement of the chase, Hubby thought he could jump it, who knows what goes on in those two heads when they're on an adventure!  Hubby says Andrew wasn't holding the light right,  Andrew says Hubby wasn't watching...this is the result of both, I would say.

At least the deer left the garden for a while and, after all, that was the goal, right?
Daylight came and the Mule was removed, undamaged...and we wonder why the equipment breaks down around here.  Need I say more?

Men always think they are the 'Mighty Megalosaurus' and everything they touch will just absorb that same indestructibility.

Happy Wednesday! :)

sounds like an exciting ride. If I weren't so afraid of the dark and spiders in their webs I'd go.

I always hear "they just don't make things to last..." Truth is, they just don't make things to take certain people's abuse. Haha!

Oh my gosh...that's too funny. I tell you it's that darned testosterone poisoning that gets them in trouble everytime.

Men they just can't help but get into trouble. I gave up on a garden years ago after trying everything to keep the deer from eating it all.

Your men have some interesting escapades, don't they?

=)

Rudee said...

I can only imagine their glee when they threw caution to the wind and gave the deer a good chase. Next time, perhaps they could record their escapades and hook the recording, on a loop, to a motion sensor. Scare the deer, but save the equipment.

I have one question, how did those gas cans remain in back of the mule ???
Glad they didn't get hurt.
Have a wonderful blessed day

Hey girls! Don't knock the testosterone. It is the mechanism by which you control us men!
