So here it is..........Stephen went out to Lake Geneva to check with The Abbey about getting our boat at dock there this Spring and while he was out, I decided to sit in the extension and watch our Saltwater tank for awhile, interesting fish. I like to look for the elusive "Jack Blenny", a lawnmower blenny who likes to hide and the dogs started barking out the window. So I look out and see Zeke, my kitty truckin' across the yard and tell the dogs off only to realize that what they were really barking at was that bastard opossum! Now we all know what opossums can bring to horses...EPM! Now I see this creepy thing in broad daylight. I keep the feed locked up in the feed shed in lock containers, but I can't stand these things around my property at all and although it wasn't near my feed shed but in and out of the garage, I go out. I need a pellet gun! I'm getting one first thing next week (payday). Call me paranoid, but I armed myself with an old African spear, chucked it at him, but missed, and banged and made all sorts of noise to scare this brazen grey rat off. Then I proceeded to spray an entire can of Lysol around the garage and feeding shed and everywhere I saw this critter walking. I think the horses thought I was nuts and didn't care much for the smell of the Lysol. Meantime, apparently Stephen had driven into the parking lot of the Abbey to have a look around as nobody was there only to feel the car sinking into what he thought was just a little ice covering pavement. He opened the door and the water was up the floor of the car. I still have no idea how he got out, of course he was soaking wet when he arrived home. The plan was to make a nice pork roast dinner tonight. Needless to say it is take out Italian and from what Steve says we managed to entertain the entire store/restaurant with me going on about killing the damned creature armed with a spear and Steve trying to explain to me how he sunk and in the meantime me telling him to not forget the creamy garlic salad dressing. Another spring project.........Clean out garage!!!!!!!!! Entirely!
