Gary's morning chore is to fill the box of nuts we leave out for the squirrels, raccoons, opossums, skunk, and deer. This morning he picked up the box to reveal a wee little blind vole, snorfling around for any spare nuts the above animals might have left. He reports that he screamed like a little girl.
He related this on Facebook, and added that most animals don't make him scream, just ones between one and four inches long.
The claim that Gary only screams at animals of a certain size made me hoot in derision.
