Its the only logical explanation.

If they'd blown off the porch rail and I'd subsequently hit them with the mower, there would have been chunks to find, and there were none. There's a big pack of crows always hanging out in the trees just behind the back fence.

The rabbits have munched 40+ dollars worth of new plants, crows have made off with my glasses, and when my tomato garden starts to ripen, the turtles will leave the ponds behind our place and flock to my backyard to eat them. I'll be damned if I can figure out how a turtle gets by the fence. They must roll 90 degrees like the Millenium Falcon on their way through.

The critters have declared war upon suburbia, and I'm the only one that percieves the threat.

It's just your part of suburbia. You are in the front line. Best of luck.

Bah, critters. Level 5 at the most. You should use them to level up your weapons skills.

MDA's avatar looks like another muppet, when you don't look directly at it.

Father Jack?

I never stopped to consider garden gnomes. I never see any, but you never do...

I really have no better explanation than a crow grabbing a shiny pair of glasses. There's really no evidence for the infinitely more plausible "lawnmower hypothesis". It was not a windy day, there were no odd noises from the mower, and no bits of glasses in the lawn or caught up under the mower or in the wheels, I checked.

I've never seen anyone hop the fence, its about 6 feet high, and the porch is elevated so glasses on the rail can't be seen from the ground.

I even tried to blame my wife, accusing her of cleaning up after me, but she insists she would do no such thing.
