: : : : : I've had some problems with crows before. The .62 flintlock loaded with buck and ball can let the crows know who is boss. Hannah and Hiram (the niece and nephew) says, "Give 'em heck, just like Hawkeye would!"
: : Thanks boys! I guess I'll give 'em a taste of shot. Wonder what the neighbors will think when I go to shootin' my big bore musket at those critters. These 20th century (or is it 21st century now???) folks seem to have very different attitudes about such things. Well, what the hey. They might as well figger out who they's dealin' with right off. You woulda thought the lawn decoration by the front door of Yosemite Sam holding a sign saying "solicitors will be shot on sight" woulda given them a clue eh? course, Betty wanted to put cutsie frogs and such around the sign to tone it down, but I told her more likely I'd put a wooden tombstone inscribed "Avon Lady" next to old Sam.

: Well, actually Mr. Bill; probably if you played a Stone the Crows album; maybe old Maggie Bell's voice would scare off your crows!
: Problem solved!
Dear Mr. Bill, having had numerous problems with intrepid
Jehovah's witnesses, or little lisping shildren peddling
hideous Christmas wrapping paper or fudge looking like
it was whipped up in a cat pan, I have found that human
skulls placed on posts on either side of the driveway
works wonderfully well. If that fails, sitting on
your front lawn with a pair of bloody scissors and
chuckling softly to yourself a la Boo Radley seems
to have the desired effect, in my experience.
