Deadly Dino's Attack O'Leary

Do you know what it's like to stumble upon a group of dinosaurs hiding amongst your roses? Well I do.


When I saw these guys yesterday I thought to myself "Anne, you're going to have to stop drinking gin."  But on closer inspection I discovered I wasn't hallucinating. Dino's had indeed invaded my yard and were coming perilously close to my strawberry patch. So I started up the mower and launched a counter attack.  When those Dino's saw the mower coming near them, they fled before the whirling blades of death. 

Something tells me they'll be back.....

  1. Well that's what you might encounter when gardening in the "New World". Not even a snake in Ireland! Dino's in America!

    1. Ya, America has loads of Dino's. So many in fact they they're classified as vermin and you can hunt them at will. The only good thing about them is that they eat they coyotes :)

  3. I think the one on the far left is a carnivore. The others however, will think your strawberries are tasty!

  6. Nice dinos Anne. You do need to keep an eye out though - those fellas get everywhere :)

  7. Well, maybe you should give them some food, Anne and tame them?

    I mean - what greater reward for an effort like that could there be than having a warning sign in front of your garden: "Beware of the Dino"?

    1. Now that's a good idea. It would keep the kids from running cross my lawn for sure!

  8. They'll come back, and in greater number like the sand people. You're going to need more lawnmowers.

    1. Kitty Fang is busy clearing out a mice infestation from a barn two doors down. After the cold winter field mice came into town and took shelter in barns and such. Someone even found a frozen possum in their barn this Spring. It was so sad as the poor thing must have come in from the cold to try and survive.

      Delete
    2. oh, noes, poor possum! :(((( And poor mice too... not that I like rodents... but imagine how it is for animals to survive in the cold winter :(
      We currently have an invasion of snakes and mosqitoes down in the flooded areas.... when people come home to clean up their houses after they've been flooded, they are greeted by dozens of snakes.... I've also read about a farm with 150,000 two day old chicks all drowned.... not that they would've lived more than two or three months before being taken to the butchers in regular times.... :(

      Delete
    3. With the heat the mosquitoes will only breed more in the still standing water. That's a huge health risk. Snakes freak me out something terrible. I'd never seen one until a year ago when I went wading in a creek looking for stone for my gardens. It was full of the horrid things. I screamed like a little girl and scrambled up the bank as fast as I could.

      I'm betting there are a lot of dead livestock, which will mean poverty and starvation for those farmers. And there's the carcasses to deal with as well.

      Delete
    4. we have factories which burn down animal carcases and make something out of it, some kind of powder which is used in industry and animal grease which is used for industrial machines.... They say hundreds of tones of dead livestock has been processed there last week..... it's just horrible... They're collecting carcases with huge bulldozers from the farms and fields....

      Delete
    5. Oh my, that's disgusting. I can't imagine the sight of all those carcasses being bulldozed like that. In UK and US they are using the babies bodies from the abortion clinics to heat factories. This is not the behaviour of civilized human beings. People are turning more and more into monsters.

      Delete
    6. You mean human baby bodies??? What the what? You know, after my surgeries I did ask my doctor what do they do with the clinical or medical waste (having in mind all my body parts which ended up in her garbage bin LOL) and she said they pay some agency to take it away... maybe they used some of my fat to heat the cities..... oh, my......

      I'm always disgusted with how unhuman humans are... just think of the angora wool which is made by cutting the belly of a pregnant sheep and pulling out her unborn baby lamb which is then skinned alive for that special wool..... I puked the first time I heard that.... Not to mention that most fur coats are made with animals being skinned alive and suffering because in that way they preserve the beauty of the fur....

  12. Gin? No, that sounds more vodka-induced to me, LOL!

    1. It could have been vodka as I was so drunk at the time I couldn't read the labels on the bottles.

  16. I think those brightly colored dinos need some camouflage if they're going to try to sneak by your whirling blades of death next time.

  17. Dammit! I knew I forgot one of my mad science experiments! Could you send them back home when you can? The growth hormones will kick in in about 30 days and then you will have Godzilla sized dinos running around....I have to get them to Dino Island before that happens!

    1. It was you! Holy Christ, the scat these things leave in 30 days will be horrific.

      I'll send the buggers back to you, but you're gonna pay postage :)

  22. They failed a motivation check and rolled snake eyes. Nice charge Anne.
    My yard has a lot of living dinosaurs in it. You get that in Darwin, NT, Ozrtaylia.
    But they are not of the gigantic type. Skinks and so on.
    Never seen a snake in my yard but we have seen possums.
    cheers

    1. These particular Dino's have developed advantageous adaptations that serves them well in their present environment. As it does get cold here, they've evolved gill slits that are capable of recirculating cold air warmed by their lungs through the vasculature that runs through their outer layer of skin. I fear that they are developing opposable thumbs and are gaining the ability to use writing implements. I found the words "Kilroy was here" along with a Dino thumb print on the side of my garage.

  23. No, Anne, no! No spinning blades of death! I'm sure they are friendly little fellas. Maybe you can share your strawberries with the little guys. They may grow and become your friends and you can use them to attack your enemies.

    Great job on the paint job. I love the colors. So spring like!

  24. As long as they're smaller than the shrubbery, I'm fine with them. BTW, it reminds me of those old pictures taken of "fairies". I endorse responsible drinking too :)!
