A funny that won't be funny if...

Was talking with a dear friend today and we were grousing about the snow. I've been snowed in for more than three weeks this time, and had to pay someone to plow the driveway so my friend could take me to the store. I don't drive on ice - not to mention that my car has been stuck in a drift on the lower part of that driveway for most of a month now. No point in digging it out until the road is clear... I dug it out twice already from another drift on the other side... and I'm tired of it. But this time I know I'd not be able to do it at all. Snow is more than a foot deep in the higher places by the house, and who knows how deep in the drifts. Clue... can't see my tires right now. :) My firewood was already completely covered with a snow drift, and that stack was two feet tall. (The man with the plow managed to push an awful lot more snow onto the wood... so it will be a while before I can get at it.) ARGGGG

Anyway:  Each spring at least one person has to tell me that we needed more snow. I told my friend that the first person who gripes about not getting ENOUGH snow - is going to get smacked upside the head. She laughed and agreed that was a very good idea. She offered to hold them while I smacked them! LOL

My wife got me a device called the Pocket Shot for Christmas. It's like a slingshot that can be used to fling arrows by adding the whisker biscuit attachment. It may be useful for cat control.

Evidently after relocating two, my problems have radically fallen off.

We have a nice population of feral cats in our new place.  I saw three large, fat mice while mowing today.  The cats are welcome here.

12 in your front yard?!!?  I'm thinking a flame thrower is the right tool for the job.

Give your son the new bike, and fix the beater for yourself, lol.

Lol. I was just going to post about this.

I still have 7 cameras deployed on and around my property. So...I check my cameras yesterday(this literally happened yesterday), and what do I see???? My neighbor's son stealing my dirt bike. I got his little bitch ass on camera, a dozen pics. I've even got a pic of him dropping the bike and then picking it back up. So I sent one pic to him yesterday morning. Just the pic, no commentary. He told me he would have the bike back to me by the end of the day. I told him that was unacceptable, and he needed to bring it back immediately. He did after he went over to his friend's house to get it. Well, the bike is trashed. Every plastic piece is broken. The seat is broken. The brake lever is busted off. The carb float bowl is leaking, and the air cleaner is missing. The front tire will no longer hold air.  It's my son's bike. It's a little 100cc pit bike with maybe 20 hours on it. I actually use that bike to go check my cams.

I told this little fuck to get the hell off of my property before I lost my temper, and I would be in contact with him. He is 19. He told me not to tell his mom. WTF?? God damn he's lucky that I will not get the law involved in this unless I absolutely have no other remedy. So, after work I stop by his house. I talk with his mom. I tell her that I have no desire to turn his son into a felon, but I need to be made whole ASAP. I told him and her that I want a brand new bike, or the money to replace the bike. I do not want the bike fixed. She enthusiastically agreed and thanked me for not getting the law involved. I told them they have a month, and to expect a certified letter referencing this conversation of how I expect to be made whole. Wow. What a day.

AZR, will these cams primarily be deployed on public property? That's important. If so expect them to be stolen, and if that is the case, buy cheapies. Trigger speed is important, as well as burst pictures(3 or 5 pics at a time). Megapixels are not that important IMO. I just want to see movement. IR flash is important, but there are biologists that say regular flash doesn't bother game. I don't buy it.

If you're going to deploy cams on public, buy one section of climbing sticks and hang the camera further up the tree. Make these fucking thieves work for it.

I'm satisfied with the outcome. The parents stroked a check for full replacement of the bike, and I got to keep the old one.
