    Short police story

    We used to have a real problem with rabbits before we befriended two local alley cats. We replanted some veggies 3x. I would come home from work and find little holes dug in the yard.

    I bought a bb gun. I was a pretty good shot, plink the li'l buggers in the butt and off they go. Best shot, direct hit, standing in basement with both back doors open, hitting rabbit 15 ft out the back door. (There are also many one shot/kill notches too.)

    One afternoon I caught a rabbit digging in the grass out in the parking area. I barely opened the front door and plinked the li'l bugger and off he went. I retired for the evening and got one of my world famous "mason jaritas" and called a friend to boast of my safari. Then the doorbell rang. I walked to the front door and there were two police cars and three police officers. I told my friend I would get back to him. The first office stepped up to the door and said they had a report of a person with a shotgun. I lol'd and told them what had happened. I take a lot of pride in my lawn/landscaping. Two of the officers laughed while the third read me the riot act. As they left, the two lolly officers looked at each other and commented on how awesome my lawn and landscaping looked.

    I can't have whole or slices/pieces of tomatoes on any of that stuff. I don't like salsa at all. Even if someone were to sneak a piece of tomatoe on food I was eating I can't eat it. As soon as it hits my stomach it comes back up very violently

    This Sunday I will be visiting my scrap marble site and a couple of farm fields where the farmers push their field boulders into piles. I will also be stopping at two greenhouses along the way.

    Of course I will reward myself with a few bloody mary's!

    pics and many lolz coming!

    The only thing that survived the winter is Lavender, lost rosemary, thyme and sage. Will probably only replace the rosemary. Started 2 types of Basil, Parsley and Oregano from seed, will move them outdoors into planters in a few weeks.

    My beloved (said through gritted teeth) puppy got into my garden by chewing through my temporary fencing and she dug up one of my squash plants. Then she must've eaten it because we can't find a shred of it anywhere. Just the one plant, just the one dig site. I'll be puzzled once I get done being pissed.

    Garden/Bloody Mary Tour

    First stop, the scrap marble source





    Pretty good pickin's today.

    ...on to the rocks!


    This pile was a little tricky. A few volunteer trees have grown since my last visit. I took a two-wheel cart over to the pile and picked the nicer rocks.



    This pile was a little easier. Both piles were only 50 yds apart.
