My current title is "repair job-shop machinist". I'm also the gearbox and pump rebuilder, and the thread guy.

Gig went pretty well this morning. Voice and fingers were shredded after 2 1/2 hrs. Hot, but not miserable, sold a CD and booked a gig for next month!

Some of the kids and grandkids came down and we grilled some brats. They just left and I am wiped out! In a good way.

I'll assume then, that the well behaved ones escaped unharmed.

Glad you are gigging still, brother.

It was about two minutes after the last kid left the party!

I didn't have the heart...

... To kill furry, scurry, fuzzy, wuzzy look-a-like, so we jogged together to the fence line and I escorted the little brat off! My grandpa would be very upset with me for not stomping on it but I just can't do that... Especially in fabric shoes! So Instead I've cleaned all the planters and moved everything 2 feet from the house and put all the planters up about 4 more inches each. (when I could find a brick or two to use.) Snipped up any over hanging plant life that someone might climb up and put the mint plants closer to the house (but up on tall things I salvaged from somewhere. Think they used to be drain pipes.) I've got extra planters I might turn over and use as bases to get the plants up even higher but it'll have to wait until my back can handle it.

Also tore up the downstairs closet... Good gravy what a mess... Filled 4 rooms of the house just to get the closet cleared enough to sweep. And about 3 hours to put everything back...

So what do I do about the mouse? Those spring wire traps don't kill the little guys, just squish em enough that I have to send scott out to stomp on em. I don't want to do that again... Any ideas? I don't care if they are out side, I don't want them in the house. Little one today almost made a dash for in the house before I spooked him the other direction, but if he's heading in, means he's already been in!

I know, I should have stomped on it... Now I'm in for epic battles...

See if you can find Victor brand traps. Unless your varmints are bigger and tougher than ours, they'll put the quietus on the little buggers!

Grr... (no)

Two planters to go up higher and I think it should be easier to keep cleared... Might give em to the neighbor then I don't have to find a way to get em 15 inches off the ground... Also need to make a door snake... where oh where is that sewing kit?

Gravy it's almost midnight... *sigh*

What a gorgeous day! 80ish, nice breeze. Got garden stuff done, grass mowed. And I could walk across the yard without being soaking wet!
