Fred goes terrier
We were working in the garden yesterday when Fred found a large gopher hole and went terrier.
The dirt was flying.
The redhead advised me to curb his activity -- "He'll undermine the walkway".
"He's burning action specific energy," I replied, "and look at him . . . the little guy's helping us in the garden. It's kinda sweet."
When we had finished the raised beds, I set a gopher trap to validate Fred's helpfulness.
This morning I checked the trap, and the gopher got away.
And Fred had indeed undermined the walkway; so that has to be filled and packed, hopefully after I catch the gopher.
Once again the redhead was right.
