Let's Go Mash a Mole......

The moles have broken through the Maginot Line of our hedge and they're really pushing their luck....

My husband, normally a mild mannered man, has been driven to distraction and is losing the war....

This was how he finally lost it..

I would like to add that no moles were harmed in the posing of this photograph...fat chance of that! He never used to catch many fish either :)

LOL! I always think of Jasper Carrott's animated skit about moles and all the processes he goes through to get rid of them when I see a mole hill. I think he gave up in the end and invited them in for dinner...

Oh Jan that is so funny. We do the same here when we get the occasional mole hill and trust me when I say it does work.....apparantly they don't like the vibrations....or the headaches either I'd say :-)

LOL ....but although I can feel your frustration ...I have to say I am glad they escaped ....they are so cute xx

Elizabeth said...

Oh dear, the EM is feeling your DH's frustration for him ... he also hates those pesky moles. Me, like Angie, I think they are cute and that is despite it being explained to me just why the EM hates the pesky little critturs :) Elizabeth xx

Your poor DH. I was with Lisa-Jane straight away, thinking of Jasper Carrott. Play that to him and it might give him a giggle at least. I can remember sitting in the sun on a French caravan site when the kids were little and watching the ground heaving around us with the mole activity, and hoping the caravan did not fall into their holes. There was also a friend who found a dead mole and put it carefully in the middle of the local, very cherished bowling green ........ Rather naughty, that one. xx Maggie

HAHA! Brilliant photo! My Mum used to love it when my sister's garden was invaded and it was on a regular occurrence. She would turn up with a bucket and collect all the soil from the little hills claiming the moles had done a wonderful job on it and it was fabulous for her garden. Not sure my sister was as pleased with the moles hard work! :D

Reminded me of my dad's ongoing battle with moles in our lawn. He ended up one day up to his knees in one of their tunnels as the ground gave way under him. He had put a hose down one of the entrance holes to drown them out. Ah well. He never did get rid of them. They are probably still there...LOL
