Another hot humid day here in the swamp. Bayou City USA. Houston, TX. Jeez. Fall was nice while it lasted. Not. It was 102F in the sun yesterday and it felt like it too.
So I mostly stayed in. I didn’t feel well. I’ve got a sore throat and felt a bit off all day, so I napped a little, and puttered. My wuflu test was negative, so I think it’s just a cold or could be seasonal allergies. Post nasal drip. Bah, don’t feel like myself and I don’t like it.
Caught another possum last night. Took him to the same spot I released the last one. This one was bigger. I’ll say that the Hav-a-heart traps are bigger than they look, and more finicky to set than they should be. Very awkward to bait properly. Not very good at triggering. I saw the beastie in the cage on my cam, and went out with a broom to activate the trap door. Took him a couple of miles away, and released him. (and not like the krazy komandant in Schindler’s List)
Vermin. Have a plan. Get the stuff. Get more than you think you’ll need.
There is still time to stock up. It’s costing more every day and getting harder to find bargains. Still worth doing, in my book.
Today I’ll be doing some auction stuff- shipping an ebay sale, picking up some stuff. Cleaning the house. Normal stuff. Boring stuff. Life stuff. These are the good old days.
Stack it up, food, tools, friends, and all the things you’ll need.
