the squirrel was trapped yesterday and spent the night in the cage. poor thing, i hate to say i tortured it with the camera flash and talking to it.
it was a still pregnant. poor thing rubbed it's head bald.
but on the bright side, no dead baby squirrels in the house and they all have a chance elsewhere. we just gotta hope the father doesn't care. but the house is temporarily sealed.
sigh. now only one yard rat. although plenty of chipmunks now.

was playing that german card game on yahoo.jack of diamonds partner.
well, i was 1st. had the Jd, and also the 2 black queens(highest cards), another trump, 10 of hearts and an ace.
nobody picked. so a leaster. now. if you take all of the tricks in a leaster you win. i had never ever seen that. but couldn't hurt trying.
played the 10 of hearts 1st. nobody wanted that trick. 2 queens takes out 10 trump(lots of js fell and 2 queens. jack of diamonds took the ace of diamonds and another trump. last trump and the ace was golden.
grandp would have been proud. now have to gloat to family! what a glorious hand!
well, hopefully the hot sauce worked. uncle came over and the hole has been covered and some extra hot applied.
