Heres a picture, also some pictures of the patch where Shep got his nuggets SAT. and its the same place, Rob had such a hard time useing a mono, when he came out. Soil is mighty mineralized for sure. Grubstake

At least it wasn't a skunk, Shep got his two nuggets, just looking to the far side of the hood of his truck, out in the open. Grubstake

No he's just a baby, I have more, I hope to get tonight. I took him out in woods and turned him lose far from the house, about 5 miles from it. So far this year, I have cought 5, and three racoons, Lucky no skunk yet, But we also had a big bear, the fish and game got her, and took her way up into the park and turned her lose after tagging her.

seems like grubstake should be qualifying to do an everready battery commercial. just like keeps on ticking no matter what. A few bumps in the road, and then Grabby is back on the farm looking after the critters and swinging a rod. muts've had a good engineer working on him.

Course like him, I have good days and bad days (don't we all?). you think you're over the hump and then bang! another pothole. Doctors can only look at us like we was some cash cow...

When I lived in South America, namely Chile, they had all these really old fords. A neighbor had a whole fleet of some 1928 flatbeds, wood frame, 2 part sparkplugs, that he used to deliver freight on the high altitude mining company towns like calama and chuquicamata in in the Atacama desert and beyond. The autopart stores had replacement parts right on the shelf.

Anything that ford had ever built was on the road somewhere in that country.

I am sure that the towns mentioned felt the peru quake. actually the whole chilean country is constantly shaking. I felt some pretty decent jolts, and was in a coal mine, out under the pacific ocean in concepcion during a 6-er. dang freaky. I saw a major river flow backwards once, and saw 3 blocks of shoreline go down, then up, then down. neat mineralization and mines. it seemed the old adobe buildings weathered the shaking the best

The bears are really out in Monrovia, and the fringe areas of the San Gabriels, in the LA Basin. People have pools but likely there is a bear swimming in it, using the chlorine to kill the bugs and water to keep cool. deck around the house? bears there too, many with toys and their stashes. rains but the water won't drain. some bear looking for a cool nap place is clogging the pipe. bears are on the comeback. must have the same doctor as Grubstake.

Grubstake. Did you know that possums aren't native to California? They were originally only found east of the Mississippi but someone turned some loose in Oregon and they've spread all up and down the West coast and inland. Just like people, they find the climate in Ca. very suitable. I bet they raise hell with a garden.---Bob

Possums are mostly scavengers, they eat road kill and garbage, they are really a marsoupyual, they have a pouch that there babys go into, kind of like a kangaroo. Its the coons I don't like, we have had a bunch this year with rabies. Grubstake

amen!

the possums mostly keep to their selves, but the dang raccoons are mean and get into everything. I think that raccoons are a lot like pigs in that they can adjust their litter quantity and timing to make up for shortfalls- the reason that pigs can never be feasibly controlled with hunting quotas. Almost every 'wild' pig in CA was a decendant of a domesticated one that got loose.

Also, Mexicans are kinda handy when it comes to cooking and feasting on the wild critters. I think that because money for groceries isn't readily available, they all live off the land, and know when to pick the fruit, cut up the plants, and prepare some critter for a tasty dining treat. Sort of like the 'do all and be all' eater.

like pitahaya, armadillos, and just about anything else on land or in the ocean. Maybe just one phase away from orientals in that regard
