Nesting Ninja Invaders

We're only 39 days away from the appearance of the Invisible People Puppy, which means mom is doing something weird...they call it "nesting". I'm not sure what that means, mom's not a bird, but apparently it does lead to massive house cleaning/redoing/daddy tasks and a lot of supervising from yours truly! It also causes dad to curse at something called "Pinterest".....

So this weekend, mom and dad decided to revamp the spare room and made  had dad help. I was cool with it, cause this is where Aunt T and Lola stay when they visit, and mom said Granny and Pawpaw will be visting a lot more soon. Let's do this!

Part of this process was getting a new peoples bed. The other one was OLD so out it went and in came a new, nice peoples mattress. There was furniture painting and mom made pillows and blah blah blah, but let's get to the part where things get weird...

We has these "garbage ninjas" in our neighborhood. Our city allows you to put all kinds of junk on the curb and they pick it up once a week, that is if it survives our local junk/garbage scavengers—the Garbage Ninjas. They are usually unseen, and your stuff just disappears within minutes of setting it out, so the below scene is what we believe to be “GNIs” or Garbage Ninja Imposters.

So after we'd finished all the new bedroom stuff, we looked up and witnessed the following…which mom took photos of:

The Scene: Mom: Honey, there’s some ninjas out here taking our mattress…

Wait, is he putting this on TOP of the van?? (this is after sever failed attempts to put them in the back of said van). He kept talking to something “in” the van but we didn’t know what it was….

Just as we wondered how they were going to secure it, this giant extension cord comes flying out the passenger window…I crap you not.

Like a redneck spider monkey, he climbs up, smoking, droopy-drawers and all, to HOIST the mattress up! Mom apologizes that she didn’t take a photo of it landing on top of him, making a redneck spider-monkey mattress sandwich, she was laughing too hard and trying not to pee herself…So, use your imagination, it looked a lot like Wiley Coyote  when a rock lands on him, little arms and legs sticking out. (But do know that the cig was still lit when he emerged!)

Time to secure this baby! Yes, they opened the passenger door and tied the extension cord through the window….if you look closely you can see the arm of his extension-cord hurling female cohort….no pictures of her either, but let's just say, neon pink tube top okay?

Oh yeah, this puppy is up to code!! And they drove off….God bless America.

Mom laughed so hard, dad had a look of shock and horror on his face, I was so shocked at this whole thing I didn't even bark at them...

In other, less entertaining news, during her "nesting" mom found her camera charger!! Yay! So now there's no reason that there shouldn't be more ANNA photos on here!


  1. It is the same over here. We call it the naughty step and things just go. Have a happy Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Not much longer until the invisible peeple puppy arrives.. and THEN that flashy beast will REALLY get a work out!!!

    we call those folks... Suburban MINERS... Here they come in Pick up trucks.

  3. OMD!! We have those Ninjas too. They have taken some strange things. They too have a lovely truck and can also complete a junkyard obstacle course without losing a cigarette... or tube top for that matter. I also am too mesmerized to bark thus the ability to sneak in and sneak out like... well ninjas!


  4. So if she found the cord, where is Anna's pic today???

    Great Ninja adventure. Better than paying for seats at hte movies, just needed some popcorn and soda:)

    Tell me nesting is good, take it easy and get all rested before the invisible puppy arrives. All our best to the family.

  5. We don't have awesome garbage ninjas like you have but if you put stuff out on the curb with a free sign people practically get in accidents to stop and scoop it up :)

  6. Kuster got very excited about the prospect of more Anna pictures The poor little dude is down to two legs while holding the other two up due to his pano. I think he's faking a little for sympathy, but it still didn't get him out of the bath yesterday!

    Morgan would have had a stroke over those ninjas outside of the house! OMD!


  7. Anna, those ninjas, they wasn't the same as the Peeples of Walmart, was they? Now I has met you, Anna, and your peeps and all and I know that your old mattress do not has cooties or nuttin but those ninja peeples could not know that and I suppose they did not care. I mean, wot if'n you and Duncan woz redneck dawgs and had a flea farm growing in that old mattress, I ask you? Mebbe they think efurrything will be blowned off after the ride down the highway atop that snazzy van. Or that mebbe the fleas be electrocuted with that extension cord bungee cord.

  8. Shawnee SO paws the truth!

    Mom khalls them The Trash Vultures...the flock through our neighborhood Sunday night

    BTW, with any lukhk, the human puppy khould arrive on MY Gotcha Day! Paws khrossed!


  9. OMD. I read this to Mom and she's got tears in her eyes from laughing so much!

    Mom better never have one of those invisible people puppies and think she needs to do any "nesting." The SQUEAKY TOYS in our house have TOP PRIORITY, you know. They must stay at all costs...


  10. Oh Anna this was so funny, you had me and Mum laughing really hard! We ALSO have these ninja garbage stealers here in my Village, last week in fact we put an old broke CD holder by the trash and in a few seconds it was walking off with somebody down the street, Mum was shocked, why would anyone want a BROKEN CD holder??? I agree with Shawnee too, who steals a mattress from outside someone’s house, who knows what could be on there!! Its kindda gross! So funny seeing that guy struggle with the mattress! BOL! Speaking of barking, how come you didn’t bark?? You must have been as shocked as your Momma due to the sear audacity of those people! Crazy! I hope your Mom is taking care of herself and resting, not nesting too much coz that invisible people puppy is almost here! Are you excited Anna?? Love, Licks and Hugs from your furiend Frank xxxxx

    It is really informative post thanks for sharing and just keep up the good work.

  12. HAHA! I almost peed my pants! All I can picture is the "redneck spider monkey" making a mattress spider with arms and legs sticking out! We have "urban termites" here, too. I've put some real crap out by the curb and lo and behold, it's gone within the hour. Pretty impressive, really! I hope your new one is keeping you busy? Will be excited to read about Anna's new human :)
