The Moleinatotor

Meet the Moleinator. This is the most persistent man I have ever seen. When most people get a pesky mole they set up traps and let it be. Or adopt it as a pet and name him Digger -- Anyone remember Shirt Tales? Anyone? Anyone? But most people set a trap and then no worries, no more thoughts. Not this man. Days...I tell you DAYS...he has spent walking the perimeter of the farm. Searching for his arch enemy -- The Mole. Patience and persistence are two qualities he adheres strictly too...I know, hard to believe we are related.
And what shall he do when he sees the earth being to move as the mole begins to work his way under the soil? Why the most obvious thing anyone would think of...use this pick ax to pull it up from the earth in a bloody mess.
I know, I know...you see where it comes from now. The Twerps so wanted Grandpa to be successful this week so they could be a first hand eyewitness to this gruesome ritual we perform. But alas, the mole did not cooperate.
However, I received an email this morning....
There is one less mole on the farm after this morning. One day late! G-Pa

I think I need G-pa to adopt me. It seems I'm a bloodthirsty lost member of his family!

That is awesome!

He needs me there with my axe. If I did not get into a rain shower and rust up, I would chop up all his moles with my trusty axe. That is the key to success in life. Persistance! (and stay well oiled)

I can't believe this is the Lawrence that we work with. He seems so gentle and wouldn't hurt a fly! Seriously! Now we know the real Lawrence! Poor moles!
Sorry your schedule was busy this time around but next time you come to town we will do lunch! Your biggest fans, Robin and Robin

Makes me miss my dog lucky...the mole runs are active in my backyard. Is your grandpa heading here anytime soon?

Seriously...has anyone noticed how much bro law looks like Hank Hill...

He should be getting paid royalties for the use of his likeness.

Somehow the theme from Caddyshack keeps playing in my mind...

"I'm alright, don't nobody worry 'bout me..."

I can relate. I had a gopher problem once. I used to lie awake trying to think like a gopher to get ideas how to rid them. I even thought if I had a shotgun I would just stick the barrel in the ground like Elmer Fudd and blast away! I remember looking out my window and watching the little boogers push the piles up, there's one, and another one... OMG! It was like invasion of the alien gophers.
