Paper Cuts and Squirrel Wars

Abby Lab here.  Dad has been in the basement all day.  He's taking the old upper cabinets from before the kitchen remodel (they are metal from the 40's) and hanging them on the walls in the basement for more foodables storage.

But Mom got REALLY bored upstairs and figured we needed something to keep us occupied.

Then she remembered she had these little paper airplane kits that didn't look TOO hard to put together (I remember telling her when she got them - "SURE, they're for the GRANDKIDS,")

Mom's going to build a fighter plane that we can take outside and lob at the squirrels.

Squirrel Wars!

But first, a little practice with a Scottish Drone.
Then on to American fighter technology, soon ready for takeoff.
Which, after crashing in Iran during a CIA mission, was reverse engineered by the Iranians to make an exact duplicate.
The squirrel has spotted the next plane being built
It's time to fight back!
