So we have this woodpecker that has pecked it's way into our attic and now lives there. It is so annoying! It lives right above our office and rustles around and pecks at stuff while we are working. For awhile a quick pound on the ceiling would send the bird flying out of our house, but I think it has gotten used to that by now.

Today we went by Big 5 and bought a BB Gun!!!I keep laughing to myself, because all I can picture is a scene from the movie "Failure to Launch" where this woman wants to get rid of a mocking bird that sits outside her window and makes all sorts of annoying sounds. She meets someone who has a BB gun and he brings it over. She pumped the gun too many times, shoots the bird, they think they killed it and the guy gives it mouth to mouth.......Oh man! Such funny stuff! I will not be giving this woodpecker mouth to mouth.

So if you drive by our house and see my husband standing there with a gun pointed at our house, he is just waiting for the darn bird to come out so he can give it a little sting and make it go away!
