I dropped the pruning saw over the fence and went to get it. Joe and J.J.s yard is overgrown and a gorgeous climbing rose with trellis had fallen down into the long grass. I thought I'd utilise some and tried pulling it up and pushing some through the fence.
Ernie came to the fence barking. "Its o.k. Erns its me". Ssssshhhhhhh. Bark... bark... "Hey Mum what you doing. Can I come over. Mum. can I " He was running up and down the fence line barking. " Mum I can't find the hole you crawled through". Bark Bark.
Nosey parker Sam had to come and see what was going on. "Is it food Erns." "Is it a cat. I hate cats. I'll get it. Let me ....Let me...". Bark bark. SSSHHHHHHHH you two. Bark Bark.
I had the rose half way up the fence ,tangled in my hair and becoming very frustrated. Both dogs are running up and down the fence line barking. Bark... Bark...
Quiet.ssssssshhhhhhhh QUIET!!!!!!!!!. No they were enjoying this game.Bark... bark...bark
Wendy the neighbour on the other side called out to see if I was o.k. I am five foot, the fence is 6 foot and Wendy couldn't see me or hear me with all the barking. With rose getting more tangled in my hair and shirt I tried to find something to throw at the boys or stand on. Damned dogs you are dead this time.
I heard Wendy call "Pete I saw Chris on the fence cutting the tree and I think she may have fallen. I can't see and or hear her." Oh heck. Darn those dogs.
I yelled as loudly as I could "I am at Joes stealing plants" just as both boys decided to stop barking and rush over to see Pete.
Thanks boys. Half the neighbourhood knows I am stealing from my neighbours. ;D Today Joe asked if she could mount a video camera on the fence so she doesn't miss stuff. How embarrassing.
Chris, I think you would fit into our neighborhood quite nicely! ;D

Oh Chris, I hope you are keeping a diary of all this! I have been tangled in those roses before ... and it can be so hard to get out when you want to. ;D
That is a hilarious story, but what did Joe say about the stolen plants?

Well you just need to strap a webcam to your body. That's all there is to it. So many bad boy stories! I love them.
