Waskally Wabbit!

Where’s Elmer Fudd when ya need him?

Went out this afternoon to check on the garden and do a little work.  Needed to dig some drainage lines to get rid of a few puddles.  I’ll be damned if a third of the corn wasn’t eaten down to the ground!  All since last evening.  Not happy!

I called the wife and told her we had to build a fence.  We’re very short on dough so I drug out the chainsaw and tools, cut down some small trees in a place we need to clear, made fence posts, and put them up at the corners of the garden.  My shoulder gave me hell the whole time.  Took two codeine.  Still it hurt.  But we got’er done.

Around five my brother gave the kids and I a ride to Home Depot where I bought some chicken wire.  Over sixty bucks to go ’round the 172′ perimeter.  Back to the house I put the fence  up, staked it, got the whole darn thing up just as it was getting dark.  MAYBE I have cut that rabbit off from its evening meal.  Or more than one rabbit, probably.

If not, I have a shotgun on layaway.  I’ll get it out and sit vigil.

Anybody want Rabbit stew?
