He saw just what he had in mind
It practically had his name on it!
He went home and broke the bank
stuck the cash in a safe place (my wallet)
and we went back to the store.
We made a beeline for the hunting department
and with no hesitation whatsoever
he eagerly lifted the box from its place on the shelf.
At the register he set his purchase on the counter
proudly handed the woman his money
and with several smiles and encouraging exclamations from onlookers
he left that store a taller man.
If that were the end it would have been a good story,
But it's not.
That was one 34 dollars to make the squirrel population tremble!
Put behind that a "serious" hunter and you have 3 silenced chatter boxes
in two days. So far ones been fried, ones been roasted on a spit, and
the third is promised to the Bar-BQ.
Daddy says he's about to outlaw hunting near the house or we'll never
see another squirrel without using binoculars!
It's pretty wonderful to see that smile though - worth 34 dollars
and every fuzzy little rodent he earns!
