I know that Spring is close. Not because it is March. Not because the snow is melting, again. Not because there are flowers blooming. Spring is near because there was a sighting of something great and wonderful, right outside my kitchen window in my neighbors field. You guessed it. The gophers are coming, the gophers are coming. And watch out, the twins are gonna take that gopher hunting contest this year. Ok, well at least do better than 8th place. Whatever. The only girl team is gonna rock though, that's for sure.
Remember now, gopher hunting in these parts is a good thing. It is a necessary part of life here in the country. It's what Lou Lou and I can do to help this land repair and recover so the livestock can stay safe. It's what we gotta do for the environment. It's almost like saving the spotted owl, it's like..........ok, we do it for fun. And really, when Lou Lou uses her new pink gun she got for Christmas, how can that not be fun?
