We’ve got a war on our hands, people.

The springtime gophers that have taken up residence in our back yard have been going off this year. When I woke up this morning, I found at least four new mounds of varying sizes scattered about.

Last year, a heavy blanket of Uncle Ian’s all over our yard took care of them. But I checked the garage a few days ago, and found that I maybe have enough to funnel into each one of their mounds before flattening them back out.

That’ll keep them away for a minute, but I’m definitely going to need to order more repellent. Maybe a sonic spike or two. 🤔

Heaven forbid I have to go full Caddyshack on their lil asses…

Alright… I need to get a little exercise in before I start working on dinner. Only ~13 minutes worth, according to my watch.

Cheeseburgers tonight! Pretty nice
