Drunkard's Christmas Tree?

What do you get when you mix a husband with a BB gun and a penchant for Bud beer, and a 6 year old boy? Why, it's a drunkards Christmas tree of course! Imagine my surprise when I glanced out my window this afternoon and saw this sight. Beer cans hanging from a tree in the side of my yard. Hillbilly hoedown you ask? Frat party held on my property that got out of control? No, no, just life in the woods of Central MA. It seems that empty beer cans make great shooting targets. Oh well, at least they are not using birds for targets, right?

Before I get angry comments regarding the danger of BB guns, and other such dire warnings that include the phrase "You'll shoot your eye out, You'll shoot your eye out" let me tell you that while I don't love the BB gun idea all that much, I am glad that my husband and son have so much fun doing this together, it seems to be a great bonding activity for them. I just wish he would leave the empty Bud cans out of it!

Oh yeah, there was also this little problem with flying squirrels we had a while back, lets just say my husband took care of those nasty critters single handedly.

Ah, reminds me of our house...I have an almost 7 year old boy and a 9 year old boy.

Takes me back to The Great Squirrel Massacre of '96!!

The human napkin thing sounds familiar too. My husband always says "The world is his napkin" about our youngest. ARGH!
