Squirrel Nest

This is a TDB news flash. I'm your outraged reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

Do you see this mess? There are clumps of leaves all over the ground under our silver maple tree. 

These are fresh cut ends of small branches. Look, they're even piled up in the crotch of the tree! 

Who do you suppose is capable of such carnage? 

This happens every year in June! The Evil Squirrel Cartel tries to build their headquarters up in our silver maple tree so they can be close to our pear tree and bird feeders. Drat those miserable, mammering, motley-minded, miscreants! (Don't make me get out my Shakespearean insult kit!) 

Those scrabble tailed dirt digging moldy thieving tree ruining seed stealing rabble rousing sneaky flea bitten louse ridden … (for more insults, see video below.) 

Get out the hose and blast them to kingdom come!

Oh, I know … Ghostwriter is working until 11:30pm tonight. I'll ask her to go out and blast that squirrel nest when she gets home. That should scare the nuts out of those screwy squirrels! Hehehe!


  1. yeah, Ma was gonna do that til she remembered that our grumpy neighbor would probably yell at her...hehehehe
    So ours is still there! I keep watch, to make sure that no frickin' tree rats try and come down...I hopes your Moms has better luck than mine!!

  2. Really!?!? How cheeky, they've really nested in YOUR tree!?!? Well, hopes Ghostwriting can sort that cheeky chappie out
    Happy Father's Day to Dad

  5. Blastin' them with the hose should make they mad enough to leave, we hope! The nerve of those tree rats!

    Love ya lots♥

  6. The nerve of those darn squirrels!!! The least they could do is clean up their mess.

    Happy Father's Day to your Dad from both of us.

  7. Squirrels are pure evil.
    I try to take down the entire tree when they come in my yard, Unfortunately my mom is not so keen on my tree work and it's hard on my teeth :(


  8. Those pests...they shuld have known better than to start up a den in your tree...Grrr!

    Wash em out, that is a great plan, maybe you need the fire dept hose it has higher pressure, BOL!

    When they fall out, you would love to use the equipment growlmy saw alongside the highway today...about 6 ironingboard machines...they are doing a major road project here...and bonus, if growlmy was out there and had a camera, its right beside where the big metal drgonflies, and burds come and go:)
