There goes 500-1k, assuming they dont want to rip the pipe out of the
front yard..  then several k$

Or you could just buy a Clog Hog for about $100 and attach it to your pressure washer, and do the same thing they'd do.

Found the offending plant in the back yard. its gone.  In process of doing that, i was covered, with what must have been several hundred seeds. Wife got some in her hair even.  It was hidden in a patch of blueberries.

The park, out by the creek is a mess with them. Just cant let dogs run up there to the edge anymore. :(  

 

Never seen them before, but i bet we now have trouble every year chasing these things down and killing them.

Then you have to watch this guy:

[ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqTVbsEw73sR26xyJQMmceQ ]

Unclogging drains with a pressure washer is the majority of what he does.
And he's got attachments for his pressure washer that slice right through roots.

And he's freaking hysterical.

Went to local Rural king tonight. ( its a retail "farm supply" store, if you dont have them in your area )  Aside from some pet stuff i wanted to get a smallish stack-able toolbox ( perhaps 3 cubic feet, not big not small .. going to use it to make a portable solar panel battery/charger/inverter box ).  28 bucks.

Girl scanned it, *beep* um, its asking for ID and you to sign..  wtf.. for a freaking toolbox????

No.  I take them to the local park and release them. We are a no-kill family, unless its unavoidable.

I think they go back, get friends, and tell them, "Nah... you go to this place, all the free food you can eat, then you go out and jump in a bucket, and the guy gives you a ride home. We've done it 5 times now. Every time, he brings us back and drops us off here."

Heh. Are you familiar with Shawn Woods? He's a "mousetrap expert" who has done video reviews of hundreds of different mouse traps. When he catches mice -- and he catches a lot of them -- he rehomes the native species mice, but the ones he considers invasive are "humanely dispatched" and then set out for other animals to eat. Usually they get consumed by possums or skunks.

Did I ever tell you guys about the mice in our old house? For 19 years I dealt with them, then on the very day we moved out I saw a speck of daylight from the basement and figured out how they were getting inside.

I'm ok with keeping them alive and bringing them outside, but the cats don't agree. Fortunately our current home is sealed up pretty well and we don't get mice. What was funny though, is that when we brought a new kitten home a couple of years ago, the older cat started bringing prey inside so he could teach her how to hunt. We had a bunch of mice and even a small cardinal. When he was satisfied that she had learned enough, he stopped doing it.

Well, more on the mouse saga around here..

 

As mentioned i have a bucket trap in the garage now, with a motion sensing camera ( so i dont have to go check it each day ).   Late this morning it went off.  Checked to see if it was a mouse, or just one of our dogs, and no, it was a neighbors cat checking out my garage.

Got another cat that has started handing out on the roof of my shed..  

 

Do i have a huge sign "animal house" or something?

Pftrgh. Finally finished the knobs and handles on the kitchen cabinets I installed last spring. There may have been a lot of procrastination on this because the drawer faces are attached to the drawer bodies, and the screws supplied with the handles I bought are too long to fit after I had to countersink everything. So instead of just going out and buying shorter screws I cut them all with a hacksaw like a doofus. Finally done. The cabinet knobs were easier because the screws were the correct length and I made a corner jig to put them all in a consistent placement. Floor tiles are mended, trim is installed, now we just have to do a nice tile backsplash and some under cabinet lighting.

I find that the best motivation to complete a task, is to have another task I want to do less. I had to bag and store the artificial Christmas tree, which involved completely cleaning the garage.

Whooho snow!

8+ inch i think was the last count.  Fun times.  Dogs love it.   We were the only people out walking to the park during the storm.  Pussies!

Local hardware store now has 'contactless pickup lockers'. Ordered some grass seed, got a text ' its in a locker' wth does that mean?!?!. so i had to look it up.  What is this world coming to?

Sure, for us that dont like people i guess its nice.. but still.

Local Walmart has one too.  A HUGE tower thing in the front of the store.
