This fig tree is covered with ripening figs right now and all kinds of birds, including orioles, mocking and blue jays are covering the tree to peck each fig as it ripens.
To add to the competition, that pesky squirrel has been all over the tree!
These critters and fowl knock lots of figs off.
While my Humans were trying to pick some figs off the tree, I went behind the hedge and ate and ate the ones that had fallen on the ground.
Big problem! I’d just had my dinner. When we went back inside I wasn’t feelin’ so good. Oh, dear! Retch!! and all of my supper and partially digested figs came up.
My Human cleaned everything up.
All evening I was hungry and the mean woman wouldn’t give me more supper! It was all her fault for not paying attention to me!
I haven’t been near that tree or eaten a fig since! I did check out the pears on the ground. No I didn’t eat any.
But that wasn’t the only thing we got into last week…
Murphy & Stanley are hosting Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails that started on 7-25-14. See their 7-7-14 post for all of the details, then join in on the 25th to participate.
Well, I had my post all planned out and then I got to writin’ it and I got it wrong! My Human was workin’ hard ‘cause she has a couple of deadlines comin’ up and I didn’t get the computer ‘til late.
She’s the editor and didn’t catch my error! I left out the part with the box!!! THE DARNED BOX!
See, this is a diary of my life, so I didn’t want to make it a fairy tail…it had to be real…but I forgot the box, and the Human didn’t catch it.
My final mischief happened Saturday when my Human opened the garage door and outside were 2 neighbor dogs. Despite her command, I tore out the door to check out the invaders!
So this week has just been filled with mischief! I think I’ve been in trouble more than I’ve been out.
Y’all come by now!
