Budge for Bait?????


budge for bait 002budge for bait 003budge for bait 001I expect you are somewhat confused by the title of this blog!  We have for years called our youngest daughter Susannah by the nickname of Budge. There now, you can understand the first part of the title. As to the second part ‘Bait” Linda has a small animal trap set up in our basement.  We have a regularly visiting rodent which is probably a squirrel. Linda has set the trap with a variety of tempting foods such as peanuts, peanut butter etc. So far the wily squirrel had managed to eat the peanuts each day without setting off the trap. After three days of failure Linda inquired on that famous and knowledgeable internet site Facebook to see if there was a surer way to trap the creature. A good friend of Susannah’s (Budge) suggested we put a photo of her inside the trap, (A bigger nut) that would surely bring the rodent to bay. So folks the trap is set, you can see Budge’s smiling face just inside and waiting for the squirrel to trip the trap. I will keep you all up to date on the success/failure of this latest attempt to catch the little bugger!!!!The squirrel that is,  not Budge!!!

God Bless and keep reading
