dear ms b-raptors and ranch rules


now first ms b
i want you to know that you dont need to be afraid
to come visit us
there is no way gma will let that raptor bother you

your gma is like a mamma bear
protecting her cubs
shell do whatever it takes to do that

why last night
ms b
as she got ready to put our chickens up for the night
as she entered the chicken run
where i had so expertly put brush and rope to keep those
raptors from dropping from the sky downward
to their prey
there to her dismay
inside the coop ms b
were these two big raptors

one of those that i had mortal combat with just two days
i sort of lost but i still managed to run the raptor off
with that long 6 ft t post
poking him real hard in the chest
im sure he was thinking what the heck
this guy means business
so off he flew

your gma
that mamma bear anger on her face
entered into mortal battle with those two raptors
yes ms b she fought off both of them
she was twice as brave as i was
well i asked my wife she
what did you grab to run those raptor fighters off
maybe an ax or that large hoe or i know that
long flat shovel i use

no she said
i just used my bare hands
there were lasers like at a rock concert coming out of my eyes
i was a yelling at them like a crazy women

so ms b
that scared the beejeevies out of those raptors
man they are big
off into the sunset they went
thinking we aint gonna deal with that crazy lady no more

sad to say ms b that we will be getting 3 less fresh eggs a day
ill let your mommy explain that to you

you can feel rest assured that your gma will do whatever
it takes to protect you when you are here

i also learned after this event
i had better not make her too mad at me
now ms b
here is a picture sitting at the top of this tree in our front pasture
he or she is a big raptor
your gma and i have looked online to id the bird
we cant seem to find the right picture that matches up
with what they look like

they are 6 ft tall and have 10 ft wingspans and have these
piercing eyes that look right through you
with that vise like sharp raptor mouth that could rend a person
into pieces

oh wait no
that was in my aricept dream last night
they arent quite that big

so there are ranch rules
if your dog wanders onto your neighbors property
and attacks their animals
you can expect to find the dog hanging from a fence
those are ranch rules

natural predators like raptors foxes skunks raccoons
you dont shot them
they are just doing what nature has trained them to do
you can capture them and move them down the road
a few miles
like i plan to do
improve more my chicken environment so they the predators
cant do any more damage

we have lived here ms b for 15 years
our chickens have freely roamed our pastures without fear
never losing any to predators especially aerial predators
that has changed
we have to adapt dont we
