Changes

In the past 72 hours, The Primary Wife, Rock Solid and The Missus, and two new friends, Fat Tire and Springsteens Ex, and your humble host have formed, poured and stamped a concrete patio, planted 2 pecan trees, two hickory trees, 8 apple trees, and three varieties of grapes.  In addition, we prepared our new fancy above ground garden for Spring planting.  We’ve nursed a injured mare, cooked for a bunch of friends, sent a stake through our underground propane line, fixed it, and drank 1,236 beers.

We are all pretty tired.

    Mack:

    I got worn out just reading the list!

    What kinda grapes, “Welch’s” or wine?

    I’ve got a 35′ black walnut, skinny, but straight. I think it’s going buh-bye as I don’t like the skwerl campouts in the fall. They play, eat and make little squirrels and then start looking for someplace to spend the winter–Hotel d’emocommie is closed, but they break in. They say that killing them has no effect as they will “fill the vaccuum. I may be putting that theory to the test.

  2. Big dogs can help with that. I haven’t seen a squirell in years. Used to be covered up with em. They don’t like being snacks, so they keep a respectful distance.

  3. squirrels are why the Lord invented 410 shotguns.

    Actually I’d pick them off with a .22 (or a .223, come to that) but it’s illegal to discharge a firearm within the city. I tried a pellet gun but it was only a 750ft/sec .177 and lacked the power to do the job.

  5. Demo, you have to aim with a .22 and the bullet will go for a mile if you miss but a shotgun only requires pointing in the general direction. I don’t live in the city.
