This is a home complaint!…We have a broken decorative window above our foyer, that cracked several years ago probably due to settling & cold/hot weather shifts. Scott’s been putting it off, but it’s about to finally get fixed. It had to be special ordered, and then they delivered the wrong window. Sigh. Anyway, hopefully it will get done in November. In the meantime, last week we heard what we thought was a knocking at the front door. Turns out, this stupid woodpecker has started pecking into our stucco above the broken window. By Sunday, he created a huge hole. Grrrrrr! Not happy! Now, we’ve got to have this repaired too. When we hear him, we try to hustle out there and peg him with a ball. It will just take one good shot. I don’t care, honestly, when animals & critters destroy our property, I really don’t care what happens to them. In general, I like animals and believe humans should live in harmony with them. But, when we have to shell out hundreds of dollars for repairs, yeah, you better believe I just don’t care if we peg a bird with a ball. A few years ago, a bird had pecked huge holes in the stucco of my closet window. He was sitting up there one evening, I got a good shot on him, and pegged him with a ball. He never came back again!
On a better note, the bunnies haven’t been as bad this year. I’ve felt less like Elmer Fudd the past few years with the bunnies. They are crazy destructive. I’ve tried to destroy a lot of their habitat, and that’s helped keep them away. Now, I feel like Elmer Fudd with the birds!
The joys of home ownership! 🙂
