I noticed a little scattered and gnawed deercorn so the last time I got a couple of sacks at the feedstore I added two cheap mousetraps. 1.45 or so. Nothing.
So far I have killed five mice. One a day. Two with catfood and three with the same dry and wrinkled corner of Velveeta. I'm giving them Christian funerals on the leaf pile pyres at the lakehouse.
Hardly any deer except a couple of button bucks on the cams. I know they are around- big tracks coming and going but not to the cams. Plenty coons. Five in one frame. Time to deploy the Havahart and go back to the Coon War.
For New Years we are keeping it low and slow. I don't know if we will make midnight. Going out to a bonfire/telescope/champagne thing. As long as we aren't killed by a drunk driver it ought to be a laid-back evening.
A happy and safe evening to all!
Update: Tomorrow the Redhead and I put pen to paper of what we want to accomplish in the next year. She starts off with a big Pilates workshop at her place. I'm going back to teaching a couple of sections at Tyler Junior College. Besides the big picture we have some specifics. 2008 was wonderful. We have much hope for 2009.
