Caught Red Handed!




The Squirrels have had a feast on our pumpkins, and I just don't have the heart to throw them away just yet. I will say it isn't fun cleaning up their remains. This little guy is bold he doesn't even move when you pull up in the driveway and climbs completely in the pumpkin.

Ever wonder where sayings come from like Caught Red Handed? Well this one is kinda gross and if you want to find out click HERE, you probably won't say it again.

Do you still have your pumpkins out like us? I am thinking by this weekend their feast just may need to end!

hmmm I didn't know squirrels liked pumpkin. We have TONS of squirrels here but I never saw them go for our pumpkins. I finally threw ours away last week.

Whoa! That is quite the feast!

I posted about your necklace today. I totally meant to post sooner...but time got away from me.

Those are very bold squirrels! Aren't you nice letting them feast away! ;)

We still have our pumpkins out - since they're not jack-o-lanterns and work with our Thanksgiving/Fall decor. They'll be gone this weekend, though, since they'll be replaced with Christmas decor instead. ;)

Happy WW and Happy Thanksgiving! :)

My pumpkins will say out until Thanksgiving day. Then they are gone. I do not have any friends like yours that have stopped by to help themselves.

Great story and pictures of squirrell! I had the problem a few years ago and sprinkled red pepper on the tops and bottom of the punpkins (spray with a mist of water first - I know it may be too late for you little pumpkins now but...there's always next year!
