Though eternally grateful to the anteater for it’s efforts, Jane gave it a one-way ticket to some friends whose ant problem is more extensive.

  1. Enchanting, especially Jane’s initial response to the block twins suggestion I’m especially intrigued by the name Vermilingua. How cool is that?

  2. I think I actually caught myself giggling with delight when I viewed this story. Talk about the element of surprise…no one does it like you and the twins. Whoever made that anteater is so talented. Just loved it. I don’t know how the twins can part with it. Maybe they will hide it like they have been know to do with other critters.
    I’ve been trying to find the story with the twins and the alligator…can you direct me?

  3. Amazing!!! Only the block twins could come up with such a novel solution to the pest problem. This made me laugh out loud!!! So creative!!
