Grasshopper Wrangling

Tom is taking this cowboy stuff too seriously. He thinks something is eating our lilac bushes and is determined to find out just what it is. He saw a grasshopper a couple days ago -- in the vicinity of the bushes. Yesterday he decided to stand inside at the kitchen window that overlooks the lilacs and just wait for the nasty little critter.



He stands there remaining vigilant for quite awhile when all of a sudden he sees the enemy. Of course, by the time he gets out of the kitchen and through the back door the critter has moved and Tom needs to find him again. He spots him...



reaches out to make the capture................



Caught him! He's quite the grasshopper wrangler.
