Of Mice..er...rats and men...

Tonight Erik and Michelle took the kiddos on a walk so I could start canning peaches. As I was standing at the sink I looked out and noticed a huge rat calmly eating right alongside my chickens, so I just watched. As soon as Erik walked in the door I mentioned he should grab his gun. The rat obviously thought he was entitled to the food for he didn't even move as Erik got within a few feet and then...no more rat. Erik was very excited and called his brother right away to boast of his thrilling hunt. Men and their guns...
It really cracks me up though that this is the same wonderful man that while I was at play practice today cleaned the bathroom and made me an applesauce cake with peanut butter frosting!
What can I say, I love him!
