I dont know shit

(Title copyright Ellie Mae).

So here's the poop: I found this little pile right outside my back door.


Some creature has crept in and crapped. It stole in and stool. Now, galdungit, I would expect this a little ways off, but this was inside the little dog yard -- right next to our garden. I think I can eliminate the dogs here. This defecatious roll is a wild critter. I am suspecting opossum, but not entirely sure. Other likely suspects are armadillo or raccoon... though it doesnt really look like coon poo.

Whatever little creature did it, it climbed a 4foot chain link fence to do so. (Not that I am not appreciative of the gift!). The garden is currently about 75% wrapped in electric fencing to keep the little bastards out, but this leads me to believe I need to go the full monty. (I avoided the gates just to not have the hassle of the electric fence disconnects... but I am now reconsidering this.)

On other news, the splits are all done. I am not entirely sure how folks get away with charging $120-$150 a cord for wood. If I compute it correctly, that comes out to about $5/hour for the labor, plus the 100 years it takes to grow the tree.

Big pile:

... except its hard to see the even bigger pile behind it due to the shading:

Au contraire. Please remember that YOU, not I, posted the original content.

So what does it taste like?
