I don't like these....




and they are getting on my nerves around my front door. I have killed two today, but two more got away. There was also one in each of my hose boxes where I wind the water hoses up in a box. To me, these don't have any useful purpose. I don't care if they eat bugs. I would rather have the bugs. My front porch light was set to come on at dark, so I guess they were eating bugs all night. I have turned the light off so there won't be any bugs there. Fortunately, I haven't seen even one lizard, which I really hate more than frogs. I'm sure my day is coming when they will find my new home.

While I am on the subject of animals, I have some birds that are pissing me off, too. They are eating from my hummingbird feeder and while they are there, the hummers won't come. I don't understand how any bird, but a hummer could eat through those little holes. These birds have beaks! It's some type of finch just like the picture. I have to run them off so my hummers can feed! I know my hummers are about to embark on a long journey and they need to be tanking up.

I have a couple of 9-year olds who would love to help you with your frog situation! Blake came in my room the other morning and said, "I'm not sure how it happened, but there is a frog in the house." I promise you that I know exactly how it happened...

I'm pretty sure I know how that happened as well!

I would shit a brick if I saw all those frogs....oh but no!!!! not sure if i could kill them though - they must REALLY get on your nerves!! We've got geckos all over the place at night at our house. also - we had 2 RATS, that Harley has felt compelled to hunt. It's hilarious to watch, but glad she's scaring them away! I've got those red finches in my yard too - but they leave my hummingbird feeder alone. You need to put out some finch food - they really love the thistles.
I hate frogs too!!!! Mr. Toad.......

I don't like those birds and I am not going to feed them. Bird feeders make a mess on the ground around them, so I am opting just to feed the hummers and hope the others go away. Geckos would be just as bad as frogs and lizards. I would have to borrow Blake to come collect them all and take them back to his house. I'm sure Liz would love that!!
