My Fierce Hunter

Happy Wednesday! You all know Maggie is a bit obsessed with lizards. Here she is showing her tenacity:

Wizard and I cracked up. She was tracking two lizards: One was on the side on the house next door. Now Maggie’s an optimist, so it took her about five minutes of studying the situation before accepting there was no way for her to get to the that lizard. And the other one was the one you see her trying to get in the pic. She tried both sides of the wall, but as far as I know, never got him. Usually we find the…uh…evidence if she gets them. She loses interest once they stop moving (aka are no longer compatible with life, otherwise known as dead). Remember, I never said she was normal :-)

So that’s my Wednesday Smile — what’s yours?

    Ahhh, the great lizard hunt continues! I figured there would still be such critters since y’all moved so nearby. Happy Maggie can still enjoy her favorite hobby. She’s such a good girl!

    I was trying to think of a funny critter anecdote but my 3 have been rather mundane of late so I’ll tell a Stormy funny. Only called Sunday afternoon to say there’d been a small plane crash about two miles from where she and Stormy had just finished shopping and heard the ambulance and fire crews go by. She told Stormy they were going on a “goose chase” (our term for when we chased sirens when Only was a kid). Stormy informed her that she had to get my permission to go on a goose chase. So, she called to “get my permission.” He was not thrilled that she and I were cracking up. To add insult, she handed him her phone to take a video as they drove past so they could share with me. FYI, there wasn’t much damage to the plane (pilot almost landed it on a road but it ended up in the bar ditch with some wing damage from a tree) and pilot and passenger walked away with no injuries.

    Maggie the GREAT LIZARD HUNTER! She is so smart and determined. Of course they are not fun once they stop moving, come on 😉.

    Spunk is the GREAT BUG HUNTER. Once he gets them, he usually eats them. Lately he’s been nailing those big black squishy spiders. They must not taste very good because he doesn’t eat them.

    Was laughing about Silver’s story on the goose hunt. Though I am glad that the people in the plane were okay.

    Harrison went to Disney Monday. He is having the time of his life. His parents keep sending photos but other than the night they got there hubs hasn’t had any Facetime with Harrison. They’ll be there a full week so I hope hubs doesn’t get too bummed out with no FT.

    I hope you are having a great day and that the Lizard Hunter isn’t too busy keeping the lizards at bay.

    Silver, yep we do have lots of critters to keep Maggie entertained.

    I loved the Stormy story! I bet he was irritated by mom and grandma’s inappropriate laughter :-) Also kudos to the pilot for landing the plane safely! I get that it was in a ditch, but he (or she) and the passenger walked away and didn’t harm anyone else, so I call that a success!

    Viki, Spunk is so funny! I love that spiders do not meet his taste requirements, LOL. I’ve never tasted a spider but I’m going agree with him anyway. I bet he’s cute when he’s hunting (don’t tell him I said “cute” as I don’t think he’ll like that , tell him I said “fierce” :-) )

    I hope Harrison and his family are still having a great time at Disney! Poor hubs, he really needs his Face Time with his best buddy. I feel for him.

    I’m a day late in answering so hope you’re having a great Thursday!
