Shirl knows everything.

About a month ago I was complaining to my Mom about how much I hated the birds that SCREAM every morning at 7:00 a.m. in the bougainvillea tree in our courtyard.

Her response: "All you need is a rubber snake or two. They'll scare the birds away."

My response: "Uh...ok..."

Her response: "I'll get you a couple."

Fast foward about 3 weeks to today.

THEY'RE GONE! THE BIRDS ARE GONE!
I am no longer awoken in the wee morning hours by ridiculously high-pitched feather bags. Little jerks.

God bless the two rubber snakes hanging in my tree.

  3. Hilarious.

    When you opened the package of snakes, did they jump out at you? That would have been funny.

    And to add to WK, this is also an awesome part of this post: "God bless the two rubber snakes hanging in my tree."

    Never again will that sentence be typed.

  5. This makes me wonder what other rubber animals can be placed in trees/bushes/foliage of any kind and scare away unwanted pests.

  7. Didn't Grandma and Grandpa have those too? Or did Grandma just throw hammers at ALL the wild creatures in her yard...?
