From Colorado. A blue grass band with a female lead singer. I thought the songs when she didn’t sing were better than when she did.
Went to a talk by Jennifer Pharr Davis, who holds the record for the fastest thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. She hiked 2185 miles in 46 days, which means she hiked 47 miles a day. Imagine that…hiking almost 2 marathons a day, except she hiked up and down mountains. Her hike, of course, was supported (she carried a day pack).
We have gopher(s) in our front yard. About a block away there has been new house construction and apparently at least one gopher from over there has decided to forgo all my neighbor’s yummy yards and come eat my plants. Best way to get rid of them? From online resources, to discussing with lawn maintenance guy … both tell me that as soon as I see a new dirt mound, I need to find the hole, put a hose down it and try to drown the critter. Oh, and Be At The Ready with shovel in hand in case it pops it’s head up, so I can kill it.
What I know for sure is… if it pops it’s head up, you will hear a scream.
