Happy Birthday to my Mom! She turns 75 years young today, and I hope my card(s) arrive in the mail in time. Love you, Mom!

Speaking of 75…. 75% off is a pretty sweet deal if you can find it, and I did today. We aren’t messing around with the worthless dinosaur squirt guns anymore for disciplining naughty counter jumpers. No, sir – I bought a battery-powered Nerf Electrostorm that shoots from 25 feet away with pinpoint accuracy for nearly 75% off! Woo-hoo!

Mom, every time I nail a kitten with this bad boy, I will do it in your honor.

Takes 4 AA batteries and a steady hand. Game on, Fivel.

Just what you wanted, huh?

    An electric water gun? Interesting. So the trigger is like an “on” button? Does it pulse the squirts, or is it one continuous stream?

    Happy Birthday, Mrs. Hofman! Woo hoo!

      One continuous stream, and it’s a bit noisy. Lloyd thinks that after a while they’ll just have to hear the sound of the trigger and they’ll stop doing whatever it is they’re doing that’s making me crazy.

      Or not.

    Wow…that’s an excellent buy!! And thanks for explaining it’s use. I didn’t know if it was used to defer bad behavior or it was a game kittens/cats liked to play.

    And I’m with Lloyd, I bet those kittens will eventually get the idea to stop being naughty by just seeing the water gun.

    Happy birthday Mrs. Hofman! Have a good one!

    When you first said counter jumpers, I was imagining preschoolers. Forgot about the kittens. Heh.

    Happy birthday, Mrs. Hofman!

    Counter jumpers to me we’re people jumping over turnstiles at some event. I couldn’t imagine what you were doing guarding a turnstile. Preschoolers can’t jump that high.

    Happy Birthday and many more to your Mom.
