Voile Vole


Gettcha out of here vole. Now with the snow completely melted ... not one smidgen left ... I have discovered the damage created by my dreaded little pesky varmints aka the vole. According to a google search ... they are especially active during winters with heavy snowfall. With plans of planting some apple trees, I come to find out that that's one of their favorite foods ... so now I'm off to the store to buy some mouse traps and 1/4 inch mesh wire to help protect the young trees. Miss Holly, my pooch, has had a field day digging up my infested area ...

Today is a glorious sunshiny day ... the type you only dream about during the winter. My posts will take a backseat to being outside ... leave me a note ... and I'll try to make my 'rounds' in the blog world.

Enjoy the outside! We have so little time to be there it seems. Computers can wait.

Who says coyotes are bad? They love to eat those little critters!

Enjoy the weather and get yourself outdoors! It's been pretty mild here the last couple of days, in fact, it was downright chilly this morning when we went to church!

I love that word 'glorious'. It puts a shine on whatever it describes. thanks for your congrats about our new grandbaby. We're off to see him tomorrow. I'm excited, we both are. How often does a little miracle happen in our lives...smile. I posted a little picture of him a few minutes ago. Better get to bed...

I once had a vole on my arm, but the doctor removed it....oh wait - I think that was a mole. Vole - mole, they are both ugly!
Time for you to drag yourself back inside and say hello....I'm suffering from Mrs. Mac withdrawl.
