Say, this glove smells like…hmfff…mff

Yeah, sure, y’all laugh, but Onkle B looked down yesterday and realized he’d tracked hedgehog poo from one end of the house to the other.

Yes, we’re keeping the kitchen door closed now.

I always wanted one of those Dutch doors that have separate top and bottom openings like I saw on a sit com when I was 7 or 8 years old. I suppose I could have one now if I really wanted, but it would be pretty stupid looking on the house I have. Besides, the point of them as I saw it was to lean over the bottom half to chat with a neighbor or to hand over the cup of sugar they stopped by to borrow. Scenarios that have approximately 0.0000% chance of happening any time soon.

If you’re going to have a wild animal pooping inside your house, you could do worse than hedgehogs. I understand that England now has feral skunks. The theory is that released or escaped pet skunks have bred in the wild.

It could have been worse. Uncle B could have looked down and seen a flattened hedgehog on the bottom of his shoe.

Ah, Nature!

Predatory, invasive, nature… bees, mice, frogs, snakes, hedgehogs, rats, ants, flies, mosquitoes, skunks, foxes, birds of all feathers…
LOVE the easy pickin’s of human garbage and wildlife outdoor feeding stations. I forgot to add “deer” in the above list and if you have a wintertime bird feeder, you know what Imma talkin’ about!
WOW. Look at the rack on THAT moose!

Good thing you and Uncle B don’t have a Roomba. You could have had a Pooptastrophe.

Speaking of poopmania, with fracking in the news I thought about those luvies who went on the farmer’s land to whine about fracking and he got his tank of liquid manure and sprayed them. It was fantastic! lol

Truly—the hedgehog is a charming critter. Weasel might—just might—make a little drawing of her stubborn little hedgehog (so we can steal it).

On one of Lucille Ball’s sitcoms — one of the followups to Love Lucy, after she and Ricky moved to the suburbs, right?

@AliceH
The truly amazing part of dutch doors used by talking horses…
That show entertained American audiences for 5 years.

Now it’d have to be a show about a vampire horse who thought he was a female human trapped in a horse body and all the hilarious story lines about government subsidized species and sex changes tied into the old vampire horse master coming back from being dead to get revenge on zir for zir’s betrayal during fall of the Roman Republic and dutch doors, of course.

There should probably be a hedge hog in that story line too, one who poops in other people’s houses.

Durnedyankee, it would have to be a zombie hedgehog pooping in the house.

Because, hey, zombies.

Zombie poop! that won’t flush!

Probably should consider having an Interpol special unit made up of stiff, suit wearing, humorless white males trying to arrest and convict the owner of the horse (a bisexual Moroccan with an Italian house boy and a live in female Romanian ex-cia black ops wet work operative with a heart of gold), for various art theft/hate/human trafficking crimes every week too, hilariously being thwarted of course.

About 20 years ago I saw a kid’s book called Bunnicula about a vampire bunny. He flew, too. I didnt know what to think.

I can’t remember what show it was. Definitely wasn’t Lucy. I didn’t like that show. Not likely to have been Mr Ed – that was only on a UHF channel and reception was too awful to try watching much without someone more committed than I to stand by holding and twisting the antennas for half an hour. Maybe Petticoat Junction? Mayberry RFD? ::shrug::

Huh. Our one UHF channel was like that. Channel 17. Awful and unwatchable.

My first snowy glimpses of Star Trek were on that channel.

I have a dim memory of a 1950s TV show named “December Bride” with actress Spring Byington. I think part of the show’s set included a Dutch door.

Well, that rules out Major Mudd on channel 36 doesn’t it.

I suddenly realize there are way too many shows I can think of that might have had a dutch door, and many that would not.
Donna Reed, Father Knows Best, My Three Sons, Leave it to Beaver, The Real McCoys, Dick Van Dyke.
Then there was that show with Inger Stevens, the only part of which that I can remember, including the name, is Inger Stevens. What was I saying? :)
