Re: Zuihitsu

my mice invasion is a tale of relentlessness they are plentiful....and trap-averse won't touch em.....   Many years ago I had a similar problem - the traps were setting themselves off, and the mice helping themselves to the bait. So I designed & built my own mousetrap out of a galvanized stovepipe ...

Re: 2021 welcome playground

sleep visions -
where are my exams?
my dorm room?

plush atrium
deep red carpeting
many levels

ruined building
urban spelunking
vaulted chambers

Re: New year new Jam - 21!

Re: New year new Jam - 21!

almost too late did Cruz, McConnell, Collins, all the suck-up enablers see what they hath wrought: not until the red-capped Mongols waving guns and Confederate flags infest their citadel did they feel the cold reality the rest of us have endured these long four years... belatedly did lap dog Pence (...

Re: New year new Jam - 21!

Dear 2021 - please grant sanity to those who thought that a nation could be run like a corrupt business... please bring awareness to those unable to grasp the notion that not wearing a mask is no different than shitting in a public water supply... please show the right-wing that maybe law enforcemen...

Re: Zuihitsu

Sorry to hear that you're saying Good Bye - never an easy thing. I hope it's an amicable parting - I still maintain friendly ties with a couple of my X's. Mice - until a few years ago, I never realized they were cannibalistic. One morning I discovered a mouse haunch in one of the traps - and a day o...

Re: Zuihitsu

  The mice have launched their annual invasion upon my Keep. I've whacked six so far - four the first night I set out the traps, one each on subsequent nights. None in the last few days. I toss their corpses out into the yard as a warning to the others, but something eats them before the memo gets s...

Re: Zuihitsu

  Christmas Day, 2020 - dull, gray, and wet here in the laurel swamps And that's just fine by me. The NWS had originally called for pounding rain with gale-force wind gusts - and no amount of preemptive cutting can cull all those trees destined for imminent toppling. Forty-five mph (~65 kph) winds c...
