Varmint Hunter

In addition to his duties as baby changer and calmer of Mercedes' banshee screams, the triplet daddy has been hunting varmints in the backyard. The pesky rodents have been eating his tomato plant and he has spent the past week baiting them with a peanut butter-loaded live trap. His persistence paid off, as he caught himself a live squirrel yesterday. Being the good hunter that he is, he mercifully released the critter to freedom in a city park on the other side of town. Is his PETA membership in the mail??? We shall see... ;)


  1. Hey Josh if you want a real challenge there is this squirrel outside my apartment that wakes Danny and I up with its chattering EVERY SINGLE MORNING at 6:30... we tried going to Home Depot for squirrel baits but apparently that is frowned upon.

  2. Whoa... After reading Tom Lounsbury's columns for several years, I never thought I would see the day that a Lounsbury let a varmint go! Your dad sent me the link to this blog and I have to say I am amazed with your little family! I get his column each week and he sometimes sends me a little update on the triplets too. What a beautiful family. :)
    Take care,
