  1. I already had a strange pet, some 15 years ago. One night I needed something out of my garage, walked in and heard some unusual noise. Looked around and saw this tiny field mouse sitting in my wrench box staring at me while I was staring at him. They usually run away first thing but somehow he would just sit there and wait. When I tried to get much closer with my hand though, he made a run. Obviously I didn't want to deal with damaged stuff in my garage and made a trip to a local store for a trap. I came back with a life trap, put cheese in it, next day... no mouse in the trap. Second day? Still no mouse. 3rd day? You guessed it. So I though, what would I fall for, and came up with a piece of milk chocolate. Put that inside the trap, placed it right on the socket box and left. I wasn't expecting to be successful, let alone the same night, but when I had to go into my garage just some 30 minutes later to grab something, this little candy junkie was sitting inside the trap, the chocolate was gone, and he once again was staring at me. Now what? It was in the middle of winter, frozen ground and all. There was no point letting him out somewhere in the woods. Without a nest and source for food he would have died soon. I'm not the guy who kills animals (not counting insects) so I brought him inside. Not sure what to do, I turned an old aquarium into a terrarium with some saw dust, wood chunks and so on. Long story short, this little bugger turned out to be my most loved pet. I could call him by his name and he would come running towards me, crawling up my legs. I even managed to potty train him. He showed up when he need to pee and was shaking a little. Put him into a sink and he did his thing. Every single time he was outside his terrarium. They usually last about 3 years in the wilderness but he made it well past 5 years. He was allowed to run free in the house most of the time. Still have a bunch of photos. Needless to say, he turned into cookie monster just like me.

  13. Most "news" networks and papers have not only a strong left leaning bias but a fully fledged agenda these days, and they fight the right with every dirty trick known to ""journalism"' in order to push more people over to the democratic party, or at least away from the current administration. May I suggest this book? https://www.amazon.com/True-Story-Fake-News-Manipulates/dp/1943591024

  14. Well some people like nascar and some people like nhra races. I’m more of a nhra guy or rally fan myself. That’s my thought on race.

  17. I just want y'all to know that I have nothing to do with that mess. It is damned frustrating to watch this sort of thing happen and be powerless to do anything about it.
