There is a THIEF in the midst and HE HAS GOT TO GO!!!!!! Of course blogger will not load my pictures fast or in the order that I want so...work with me here! These pic's show my grape vine & piles & GOBS of hulls on the ground!! At first we thought someone came to the house when we were not at home (like our boys) and decided to have a snack. We could see where someone or SOMETHING had been eating the grapes & spitting out the hulls. Well this happened several different times and we discovered it was taking place at night. We knew that wasn't a SOMEONE so that left a SOMETHING...but what? Gandalf had not barked, Danny went out several times in the night with a light trying to catch IT, but to no avail. BUT YOUR SINS WILL FIND YOU OUT!! HA! Gandalf finally caught the sneaky thief and ran him up a pecan tree the other night! IT was SAM...better known as OPOSSUM!! The sorry sucker met his demise the other night...but with a full belly! So....you never know what will take place around here!

Poor Sam, but you're right --- you're sins will find you out, lol! At least you found the offender and took care of it before more damage was done.

Tina, I put a few of those hulls on the ground when I was there.

Those are some beautiful grapes tina. I'm gonna sneak down there with dot and get me some to. Tell your dog not to chase me though cause I can't climb a tree anymore.
LOL. I didn't know opossum's could climb trees, Jerry said they climb the tree and hang upside down by their tails. I need to go look that up so I can see it on the internet.

They sure can be pests. They like eggs and chickens too!!! Glad you took care of your problem.
