Nature strikes back

I thought I'd share the following funny e-mail. My mother lives in Florida. This week one of my sisters and her kids are visiting. She just sent dropped me a note that contained the following tidbits. Keep in mind that we all enjoy wildlife, on the other hand, they seem to have it out for them:

"Dear Rob:

[ ... ] Went to the beach today with Eizabeth and the kids. Willie, Elizabeth and I were eating a lunch from 'Subway' when Elizabeth screamed as a gull took off with her lunch. Earlier this morning, at golf, a crow took my golf ball. [ ... ]

Love Mom"

It's a jungle out there ;-)

Ouch when the crow dropped the golf ball on a golfers head trying to crack the nut. That's what the crows on our street do with the black walnuts.
I believe they actually wait for a car to come down the street then drop it in hopes that it will get cracked.
