Payback....

... after a delicious and light lunch, I took a wee constitutional stroll around the grounds of the compound with coffee in hand.... a casual inspection of sorts... and it appears that the gentleman who mowed my lawn yesterday did a bang-up job...

... a few of the plants which survived the long, hot Summer are now blooming energetically... and they add a nice touch of color to shady spots out front....

... the weather here is fine today... mid 70s with a bright sky... I remarked about the pleasantness of it all to The Missus as I passed her draped in her hammock... she agreed heartily... and then immediately suggested that I Amdro the bejesus out of the six hills of fire ants that she had mapped out yesterday afternoon...

... of course, I dutifully did as I was asked...

... but that's just the thing, though... we're all about The Duality lately...

... I mean, there she was laying in the hammock with her "Eyes of Buddha" tee-shirt on - completely at peace with the world and soaking up the autumnal awe of Nature's Masterpiece - and she wanted me to rain down murderous death down upon the ant colonies.... a vengeful hippie, if you will humor the idea... a born-again student of "Live and Let Live - MOST of the Time"....

..... wow... never underestimate the power of a few good stings or bites, I guess.... Wrath has a way of curing some people's propensity to chew granola bars and rescue trapped flies from spider's webs...

Bullshit So Far

I am waging about the same kind of war againsy the fire ants that Bush is waging against the ragheaded terrorists. the more of the sumbitches I kill the more I get ganging up on me..I am about back to square one and am considering again that idea about an anteater..especially if I can train it to fetch the paper.

... let me know how the anteater works out... we could start a breeding facility and make a fortune selling baby anteaters....

I know you hate the Gators, but UF was working on something to kill fire ants. It's been approved. For awhile you could only get an exterminator to apply it to your lawn, but I do believe you can buy it at good fertilizer companies now. You apply it to your ENTIRE yard and it supposedly lasts a year. I hear all the fireants will go to your neighbor's yard.

Just a thought... we are considering it. We're on an acre and have had them invade our home.

On a cool, quiet evening, listen to the darkness.

I'm sure that after a listen, you'll hear a faint "Kumbaya" type singin. If you slowly make your way, you will find the wife's hippie brethren gathered around little campfires, singing, and dancing, and doing hippie things. They are called fire ants for a reason, and it's not just their sting of love, man.

Murderer. Where's the love?

I got some extra cash I was gonna spend on upgrades to the track pig. I think y'all got an angle on this anteater thing. Emu and ostrich farming of the new millenium, and all that. I'm down with anything with a tongue longer than my leg that can be trained. Did I just type that out loud?

Let me know who to make the check out to....

Ok now we have a anteater.
Her name is Annabelle.
We have fitted her with a pink collar with a cutie bell.
One year later we have no more ants within a 14 mile radius.
Will we be allowed to eat or even sell this darling of ours.
Eric now imports ants from Mexico.
Anteaters in captivity lives for 15 years.
