Mice, Bucks and Slugs
It seems we are being overrun with all three.
The mice have apparently moved into our house due to the inclement weather. We told them they did not have reservations and would they please depart. They just ran over our feet. We brought Kate in and they decided she was the recreation leader. We got high pitched devices to plug in and they just put on ear muffs. I am afraid we may have to enlist the help of some assassins. They don't charge much they only want to eat what they kill. Oh my.
The bucks are in rut. Super charged with male hormones and on the scent of a doe they stumble and stagger in front of us as we walk or drive our vehicles. They act pretty retarded. A neighbor blogged of 2 who got in a fist fight over one of the doe eyed beauties wandering these hills. Check it out here.
We see the pacific banana slugs have returned with the wet weather. They are everywhere. On our porch, heading to the dog food, eating our lettuce. What the one on our hitch was looking for we will never know. But he did get a ride. I am not totally sure how it ended, but I think not good.
