So many moles, so little time .......

Mazie Grace is still busy catching moles. She catches several every day. so the total must be over 100 by now. There are still plenty for her to catch.

As you can see in this picture, I have a lot of sweet gum balls to rake up if it ever stops raining. I'll probably need to cut grass within the next few weeks. A lot of the yard is still brown, but there are patches of green that have grown. My yard is a mix of weeds and whatever. It was a hay field before it became a yard. We never planted grass - just cut whatever came up.

The last few days have been boring. The rain has kept us stuck inside in front of the TV watching movies. Or rather, sleeping in front of the TV while movies played. Hubbie is on call this week, so we have to stay near home. I'm hoping next weekend will be pretty and we can work on our garden squares.

Note: The dark spot under Mazie's nose is a mole hole the other are sweet gum balls.

Mazie looks just like my Jezebelle! It's been gloomy and raw here. I'm looking forward to warmer weather and some sun.
My youngest attended college in SWVA -- at Lynchburg. Ever heard of it?

Wow, she catches a few every day? You must be infested. Either that or you have some good mousers. All mine do is meow for me to pour some more food in the bowl...

Glad you came to my blog and thanks for the compliment. It means a lot. I'm enjoying yours also.

I've been to Lynchburg many times. It's about 2 hours away from here. I'm about 45 miles southwest of Richmond.

We have a bad infestation of moles. but I think Mazie Grace will cure it. She is a stray that I saw out in the fields around my house for a few months before I took her in. I think she lived off what she was able to hunt. Catching prey was necessary to survive then - now she does it for fun.
