There was an Awww moment, just for a day.
Then when I was photographing the little cutie, it ran and disappeared!
I went out the back deck and looked down to see a
pile of rock had been dug out from under the foundation. There is
a drainage hole that is apparently perfect for a winter den.
There was also a TAIL sticking out and it sure
didn't look like a cat.
Tom stomped on the basement floor and soon out pops a HEAD!
Yes, the groundhog has decided to live beneath our basement.
Bad choice, now it's got to go.
My neighbor mentioned it is visiting her too, and tearing up the yard.
They are ready to shoot it - and we are in season.
We spoke yesterday and decided if we shoot it, we're cooking it.
It will be a first for me- dressing out a woodchuck.
There are some special glands that have to be removed too.
I saw a recipe on Groundhog Day, a real recipe, not a joke.
We're going to try.
Do I dare tell Mom?
Noooooo. At least not right away.
I don't think this is the vision she had for me LOL!
Somewhere between Elly May and Granny!
We did get the woodchuck and our plans continue. Stay tuned- separate post on the way but be warned that will be more graphic-
