    Leorechaun Trap

    My granddaughter Abby wanted to catch a leprechaun. Why ?? I guess that what 5 year old girls want to do

    So she decorated a old Grizzly box (had to have something to do with woodworking ) with stuff that would attract leprechauns and tied a string to a green tinted rice krispie treat. I had to buy a box of Lucky Charms so she could lead the unsuspecting little critter to the trap.

    I told her that leprechauns are pretty hard to catch and they are really tricky. But if she did manage to catch one and he managed to escape the Leprechaun Code clearly states that he must leave a surprise in his place.

    So he is going to leave her a little bag of chocolate gold coins

    Can't wait to see her reaction in the morning

    She's adorable Bob. I bet she'll like the Leprechaun's bail money.

    That is way cool stuff Bob.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    That's awesome, Bob. I'd never heard of a leprechaun trap before. Move over, Easter Bunny.
