So I'm talking to my step-mom yesterday. She was telling me that she was in the garden today weeding and she hears the bluejays just going nuts. They live kind of in the country on the outskirts of their town. Usually, when the bluejays go nuts it means there is a hawk around. So then she hears the hawk going nuts. Hmm.....unusual. Now, behind their garden is a very small woods. (More like a thick stand of trees) From the woods comes some sort of growling. Ooooooooook. Then she tells me that the hawk came SWOOPING out of the woods with a rabbit in it's claws and of course the rabbit is screeching to beat hell. That explains the noise in the woods. On to the next animal story. Same day, same garden. She's pulling more weeds, fussing over the plants when something starts moving in the foilage. This is after the whole hawk/rabbit thing so she's a little freaked out anyway at this point. She moves the leaves aside and find all of these little FROGS. (The same frogs, she tells me, that have been showing up in their pool, swimming every morning. My 13 year old sister even swims with them......yeah, I know. She's never been right) After that, she decides that she's done with the garden for the day and heads inside. BUT!!! The day isn't over yet. Later in the evening she calls me again. Seems my sister (previously mentioned 13 year old) headed upstairs to potty and then go to bed. They hear her go upstairs then hear a HUGE scream and my sister comes TEARING down the stairs. "THERE'S A DEAD ANIMAL IN THE TOILET!!!" Apparently, over the past couple of years, my step-mom has heard stories from neighbors of similar things but she wasn't sure she believed them. Now she does. So my step-mom goes upstairs to look and sure enough, there is a DEAD SQUIRREL FLOATING IN THE TOILET. (So of course, being the big sister that I am, I put a picture of a squirrel on my sister's myspace.) It was too outlandish/freaky of a story not to share. I was emailed a picture of said squirrel but I'm not sure how to post it. If I figure it out, I might.
