Trapped on Thankless Thursday



Lightning here to tell you all about how thankless the humans here can be.



Let me start at the beginning.  If this were Monday, I would have named this post Mole-full Monday.  But since it is not, Trapped on Thankless Thursday will have to do.




This silly gate with the bizarre contraption at the top AND. . .



this door with its deadbolt lock . . .  are all that is separating me and my team from getting at THESE:



See that yellow thing in the ground by the yellow flag there on our FRONT lawn?  There are FIVE of them out there.




That is what the Momster says is a giant mouse TRAP!!!  But it isn't for mice at all - it is for those destructive critters called MOLES!!!  You see our front lawn, which is NOT part of our fenced-in kingdom in the BACK yard has been invaded by bug and worm eating monsters who make tunnels all through the lawn and landscape beds.  AND they do it at LIGHTNING speed (BOL).




Now we all know how skilled some of The OP Pack can be when it comes to rabbits.  So I have been trying to convince Mom that she needs to open that gate and the door to let The OP Pack De-MOLE-ition team out there so they can take care of the moles at our own LIGHTNING speed.  And what does she say????  The front yard is a no-sibe zone because it is not safe for us to be out there without a fence or our leashes.  Sheesh - talk about being THANKLESS!!!



Phantom is the team manager - you know, the one who does all the ordering around and no work!



My sidekick Ciara and I have the best paws in town to get the job done.  Between our super sniffers and dangerous diggers, we will have those critters disappearing before you can blink twice.




So what do you think out there?  Should we trust those yellow traps or let the De-MOLE-tion Team at 'em?

Mom says look at this:


Hmmm, one of the traps may have been activated:)

Fall Friday Flowers


It has gotten so warm here that all we want to do is think Fall, and even Winter (snow!!!)

Mom has been busy making a new wreath for our front door for the Fall.



We think she did a pretty good job, AND we are hoping she will reward us for posing for her.




Here is a closer view.  It is made of a styrofoam round ring covered with green satin ribbon and then gold, green and sparkly orange tulle strips.  She added some fall accessories on the side.



Lots of colored leaves, nuts, and pumpkins and a bright orange flower.



Hmmm, I think it matches my furs quite nicely.



ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz, wake me up when the jerky makes its appearance:)
