We Interrupt Turkey In A Teacup Thursday...
We interrupt Turkey In A Teacup Thursday because we caught a mole! Our granddaughter poses with the mole next to a big mound and hole in the ground caused by the little one and it's many relatives. This is the mole super highway, underground of course.Granddaughter had never seen a mole up close before and was excited because I was excited my husband trapped one of the legion of little critters causing so much destruction and havoc to our lawns, gardens, sheep pens, chicken pens, driveway, pond....when she actually saw the little creature she was sad and said "It is so cute, it's dead? This is sad~". I do not have the words to express my mixed feelings about these little critters, except to say they cannot be allowed to flourish as usual around here. The damage they have done is extreme.Now if they just stay to the woods and by-ways they would be left alone. But no, they have super hi-ways and by-ways around and under our home. Sheep crippling tunnels and mounds , garden destroying cave-ins, need I go on? ( but they are kind of cute)
Miss Vickie *, one more for our count on underground varmints . Here's hoping you are adding to your count.Let the competition be fierce!
