Debby's Green Acres
By Chris Elliott
August 13, 2007
We never figured out what to do about the confused rooster who
lived up the hill and across the street and announced the rising
of the sun whenever the mood struck, although we suspect that
someone with a 30-06 did us a favor. As for the neighborhood
barking dogs, my husband has had pretty good luck. Once it is
clear that the dog owner is deaf & dumb, my husband erupts
out of bed (swearing), throws on his clothes (cursing), marches
out of the house (swearing), locates the offending animal (cursing),
hammers on the owner's door, and (I've been told) lets loose
a thunderous verbal attack the owner will not soon forget. This
usually does the trick for that night. In the event the owner
does not answer the door or is not at home, he will (while whistling
"Born Free") liberate the animal who is just doing
what poor chained or fenced animals do. Give it a try, Debby.
It's very satisfying. With regard to the ducks, I understand
they can be vicious and would recommend caution.
