Both this and the other image really kinda belong in Internet Awesomeness... I just threw them in here in response to Raptor's comic book.

    I spent this afternoon digging up a series of groundhog tunnels under the shed, until I located where the one I shot yesterday had retreated to.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    To throw some lime on him, I would still have to dig up this tunnels to find him.  He was shot on the face with a 12ga., but he still manages to crawl a bit.

    Since this shed is 40' from the hog pen, I'm not sure why we were worried about smell, but...

    Well, at least it wasn't a boring weekend.   More of a digging one from the sound of it.   "Hey honey.  There's good news and bad news - which do you want first?"  .  .  .   :cool

    We had a decent storm here on Saturday. It blew an Oak tree onto our fence in the backyard. So I got to have the joy of cutting up oak most of Sunday. I took a vacation week to fix the fence etc.

    Overall it is not much damage. I just gotta buy a top fence bar and about 25 feet of 6 foot chain link. Hopefully I can get most of the fence done tomorrow. I finished up cutting today. The branches cleanly missed every fence post, so that was lucky. 

    The wood doesn't look too bad. I think I may haul a section of the trunk to the local saw mill. It will likely be only a 6 foot section, but I think I can get some decent planks out of it. The mill is only about 4 miles away, and if you buy from them often they mill for almost nothing.

    We had our little one's 4th birthday party at the local Y.

    12 3-4 yo kids running around in a bounce house is a study in Brownian motion/chaos theory.

    I think at one point we had 5 ice packs in application...

    Tell that to my shin...

    (In all seriousness, they were being used by the kids... one poor kid had a tendency to lead with his nose: got nailed in the nose once, and bashed his teeth against his lip hard enough to draw blood the second time.  Both times his Mom was out of the room. Learned something odd: I am not comfortable giving someone else's kid a comforting hug while he's bawling his eyes out with a bloody lip.  So I just sat there, holding the icepack on his lip and patting him on the shoulder.)

    My constitution could not bear that. If a tiny human is injured, I will give them ice cream, a hug, a Ferrari, or whatever else they require if it comforts them.

    These days it's best to have the parents there, or at least a LOT of witnesses. Lots of over-reactive parents out there, as well as lots of opportunistic parents.
