My oldest daughter is in a Early Childhood class in highschool. Today they will be taking the children around to classrooms to trick or treat. Of course since they are just 3-4 years old the teens can't really dress up in a scary costume. This is pretty mild don't you think?
Anyways.... this is pretty nasty stuff. It is all slimey and moldy inside. I don't know if the fact I got this from a dollar store has anything to do with it but I honestly think I will stick with my glade plugins.

My method is to dig up a big chunk of ground, drop it back down to the ground and reach down with my gloved hands to start wiggling out the grass and roots. I am lucky I was paying close attention yesterday because as I flipped over a chunk of ground and was just getting ready to reach into the soil I saw this little critter..................................ICK!! I still have goosebumps today. This little guy is pretty small and the smaller they are the more poisonous they are.

Today was the day that the young people got to take a ride. There were several different airplanes and I can't even pretend to know what types of planes they are except for the biplane. I only know what a biplane is now because that is what my son was given a ride in.
Nobody I know, just thought this was a nice shot........
My son has now walked over to the fuel pump to meet his plane. He is one of the last riders of the day so it is just easier for him to go to the plane instead of the plane coming to him. Here he is striking a pose.
There he goes.........
Look at that big ole goofy grin!! I think somebody really enjoyed their ride. Excuse the grunge look, he was planning to do volunteer work at the airport after his ride so there was no reason to dress up.

And no I am not growing money now , wish I were though! I just put the quarter there to show the size of these barely there little seedlings. And besides................ if I was growing money don't you think I would be growing bills instead of coins.

My main concern isn't really my lawn because be honest, how often does a middle aged woman skip across her lawn, high on life. No, for me my main concern is my garden. I have been fighting the mounds like crazy the last few weeks. I take a garden stake and poke away at the tunnels and blast the tunnels with water, in hopes that I can just chase the little bugger over to my neighbors. Honestly, I don't hate my neighbors, don't really even know them. It is just that they don't have gardens and I don't usually see them skipping around high on life either.
Anyways.................... my tactics have not been working so it is time for me to get serious. Poison is not an option because realistically would I want a chemical poison near my garden, not really. Time to pull out the gopher traps. Unfortunately gopher traps are not some cute little cage that I can trap the gopher and tote him off to a gopher rescue. Nope, gopher traps look like large rat traps with some nasty spikes.... oooh shiver!
So wish me luck, and if you are a PETA member, well all I can say is if you would like to come to my home and find a more humane way to cure my problem then come on over. There are quite a few eggplants out in the garden that you can nibble on to sustain yourself while you ponder this dilemma.

The polka dots on daughters dress are actually a silver rather than the white that they appear in these pictures.
I would also like to point out daughters very sensible shoes. She enjoys dancing. Why on earth wear high heels. I found it very funny when I went to pick the kids up at 11:30 watching all the girls walking out of the dance in their heels. You could tell they were miserable, clomping across the parking lot.
Sorry these pictures are a bit on the orangeish side. We were rushing around town for a final errand and trying to get to the park before the sun set. We arrived at the park at the last possible minute before the sun was gone. It was a very orange sunset that night.

OOPS, hope this young man is ok.
Why so many cheerleaders you might ask? There are three squads, freshman, junior varsity and varsity. All three squads cheer for the first half of the homecoming game.
