Haven't bogged for awhile so have some thoughts piling up.
Been real busy this winter just doing "things", running to Dr's getting some teeth pulled , there wearing out, that's what happens when you live so long, and painting at my N house that he and his family will be moving into this month, wanted to do all the painting before removing old rugs to expose the beautiful hardwood floors.
Always have trouble with wild animals in my machine shed where I live, no cement just gravel floor. I put a big live trap in there and put some bait in usually a apple. Two weeks ago I found a dead skunk in it, figured he had been in there for some time and probably froze to death. Carried the trap outside and dumped it out over the nearby fence. No big deal, I've carried them out when their alive but that's another story. Yesterday I was checking the status of my dead skunk and guess what, he was not there, figured some other wild animal or bird had drug him off UNTIL I went back in the shed and checked the trap, and there HE was. I guess he wasn't dead just hibernating . He sure must be a dumb skunk to go right back in the trap. He now is woke up so will have to use extreme caution when taking him out side. The joys of living on the farm.
Went to my favorite Wally-World the other day, and doing what Ole Duffers do at the urinal when I heard behind me a lady's voice say in a VERY excited manner, Kylie, this is the MEN'S bathroom. As old as I am I know she was more embarrsed than I. So the Ole guy's advice for the day is " always cover your rear".
Have a great day.
