Was it a gopher? You know how those gophers like to dig holes everywhere... What pests!
This hole did make a good place to hide a ball, though. Maybe that gopher isn't such a bad guy after all...
More holes... The gopher??? Um... Oops... That little boy left his green bouncy ball outside. It was too round and bouncy. Wonder how THAT happened???
WHAT??? I DIDN'T DO ANY THING!!! IT WAS THAT GOPHER, I TELL YA! HONEST!
All right... I fess up... I did it... I was bored! I enjoyed every minute of it! I found a place to put my favorite ball and took care of that green bouncy ball... It was getting on my nerves, anyway.
I stand by my work, er, um, lay by my work.
