Double duty for my plastic snake

Last night this owl showed up in the backyard again. This time I was able to get a photo. I laid down my plastic snake again and hid behind a bush, but he didn’t bite. He sat on a sprinkler. Maybe next time, I’ll turn on the water and make him come down for my snake.

Then today, my nemesis came back but this time, he was eating the green tomatoes! The green ones! I’ve been picking all the red and almost-red ones but I can’t pick them green. I tried the plastic snake again but he just hops over it to get inside the plant. Oh wait, I still have my plastic hawk! I’ll put that out today and maybe it’ll bring me luck. Hey… I know what would bring me good luck….

Why… you… no… good…

I can’t believe this!

After everything I’ve done for him… he stabs me in the back! Every time I saw him, he was eating the grass. I even gave him lettuce… my good stuff! For what? This is how he pays me back??  I couldn’t believe my eyes. All this time, I was blaming the mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, tomato-eating squirrel. At least the squirrel is man enough to do it to my face.

UPDATE: I put out my new plastic snake… he tried to eat it!
