I have not seen any groundhogs around here in a while. I think they moved on after I spent hundreds having them trapped and then I covered over all of their available hiding places with hardware cloth (wire mesh).
It is no secret on this blog that I am not fond of furry rodents, no matter what their size. Especially when they are living in my yard and digging around the foundation of my home.
As I listened to the radio today on my errands around town, I decided that I should have thought more about the future when I was growing up.
I came to the conclusion that on all those trips I made to amusement parks growing up and with my children later on, I should have spend more time at the arcade and less time on the merry-go-round.
My favorite ride was the carousel. I never missed the chance to go on it. Eventually, I would have mastered going around in circles without going on the ride.
Had I spent my time in the arcade, I could have been learning something useful instead. I could have played 'whack-a-mole'. Maybe even have won a prize. A skill I might find useful.
It is fifteen degrees outside and I need to get he snow off my drive. Not really pleasant. But, if putting off Spring means putting off dealing with critters, I am all for it.
