Rodent Celebration

It’s almost that special day of the year

Feb 2 at Punxsutawney should be on everyones bucket list.

Looks like some form of global warming is gonna hit east bumf*9% PA right about the time lil jammette, her buddy, mrs. jam, and i start heading down to check out the yearly rodent prognostication.

I’m hoping that little bastard gives us a good scrying. Four seasons are nice but a short winter is what i’m pulling for.

Rodents.

Weather.

It’s a weird combination.

I gotta get out of this hole – late to work and all.

later hoggers!

  1. i wonder what siri and/or alexa’s answer to the age old woodchuck chucking wood question might be

  2. Anyone know how to embed a .mov into a post? Leon?

  3. Morning. 4 days of full time baby watching.

    Send reinforcements.

    You’ll be fine.

  4. Never tried, MJ, but I’m sure it’s possible.

  5. I just did 7 straight days with Possum, but I had backup.

  6. If it’s hosted at youtube wordpress will embed it. Don’t think you can embed a mov. It would have to be hosted here too.

  7. we are still on the free wordpress plan, and pay for extra storage. Don’t think we can add plugins, I just looked.

  8. Morning. 4 days of full time baby watching.

    Send reinforcements.

    I’m sure Car in would be happy to help. Just send MJr to her.

  9. You might be able to store it in the media folder and then embed an internal link.

  10. Better double wrap him in flannel for the trip. It’s cold up here.

  11. Gonna be -16 here tonight. We got another 5″ after I cleared the driveway last night. Fortunately it stayed below freezing, so it’s puffy stuff. Yesterday we got up to 33F, so the snow was sticking to my shovel and the rain froze solid on my coat, hat, and pants after the sun went down.

  12. Heh, Car in, Dan is in a hole in the argument room, and still digging.

  13. Dan I’ve just decided to ignore. He’s just too silly. He just wants to throw bombs, not discuss a single thing.

  14. Not supposed to be that cold up here. I see an overnight of -6, and the next few days we’ve got a low of -9. That’s just straight temp, though. Not wind chill.

  15. Snow day, my ass…the rain and cold air were out of sync, thus it’s chilly and raining and won’t really start dropping low for another hour or so. No snow, no ice (yet), but all the schools are out so my drive to work was nice.

  16. See You Next Tuesday for the State of the Union speech, Nancy! Love, The Donald.

  17. All state universities have cancelled class, and the schools near me are all canceled. Because of “the cold”.

  18. We moved into the Lake Michigan snowbelt, so this is more or less what I’d expected. Going to have to get a plow for the truck or the lawn tractor.

  19. We’re finally getting the cold you guys have had the last couple of days. I should tell work that I need to stay home to tend my wood stove.

  20. Saw a guy with a plow on his 4 wheeler with a cab. Now that looks fun!

  21. If I had literally any other use for an ATV, that’s the way I’d go, but I really don’t.

    A bobcat, though. I could use a bobcat a lot.

  22. I had a neighbor with a blade on his 4 wheeler, he couldn’t move the big piles like a truck could, but he had a bunch of fun doing it. He would move all the snow from the driveway and front yard into a big piles, and then take the blade off and use the piles as a motocross course.

  23. Horse/mini-donkey exerciser.

  24. Russian Cat Collusion

  25. Donatello isn’t happy in snow. Donkeys have tiny hooves and he gets snowball feet if it’s sticky at all. The big horses could pull a plow, but the plow rig and connecting them to it would be more of a hassle than any of the machine options, however handy it might be in an EMPocalypse.

  26. Yay for large rodents!! Every once in a while, when we would take our walks up through the back field of the school, we’d surprise a couple of ground hogs. They’d go running and you’d hear the thump of their feets as they passed by.

  27. “Interesting St Louis news Beasn.”

    It’s a shitshow, Jimbro, all the way down. If it were just the city and county voting on what is going to affect only them, the city would lose bigly.

  28. It’s happening in Texas too, with all the people moving there from California. But great example, beasn.

  29. I don’t have hard crosstabs, but I know Michigan has lost population every year for the last 15 or so, and Detroit’s population in particular has dropped by like 250k people in that time. I think we’ve got the reverse going on, dems leaving, deplorables staying.

  30. I really like Michigan, even the weather. But I like Iowa too, and my family is here.

  31. Family is important, I wouldn’t try to encourage anyone to come here at the expense of family ties. I’d happily take refugees from the People’s Republic of Illinois so long as they leave their bullshit at the state line, but they’d probably just stop as soon as they got to Indiana, and I wouldn’t blame them.

  32. Iowa is so flat, you can watch your dog run away for three days.

  33. It’s true. Iowa makes Michigan feel mountainous.

  34. Michigan is awesome. But don’t tell anyone. I mean, God forbid Mare moves back.

  35. Michigan is awesome. But don’t tell anyone. I mean, God forbid Mare moves back.

    True, MJ is due for another move soon. We should worry.

    The Ws are welcome, though.

  36. I could live in Iowa. Hell, I still have family in Minnesota, I could visit them without having to actually live there.

  37. Evidently HS doesn’t know about western iowa, otherwise known as the Danish Alps. Not real high, but definitely not flat.

  38. Im staying in IL. I’ve declared everything North of I80 and East of 39 to be enemy territory and I intend to hold the bastards at those lines. If the Indianans will close the east door I’ll drive those Chicago commies into the lake.

  39. I’m just East of Chi-town off of US-12, Troy. If you need logistics support when the time comes, I’ve got your back.

  40. I worry a bit about my neighbors in B’ham, but I’m pretty sure I can get roamy to lay down some rocket artillery fire to cover while I drive from…wait, I don’t HAVE troops…fuck. New plan needed.

  41. The nanny arrived. I made it.

    No one has ever done anything so exhausting as to watch one 15 month old baby for 3.5 hours alone. I should get a medal or something.

  42. How did we allow someone who has a “nanny” among our ranks?

  43. Truly, a herculean effort.

  44. MJ is the 1%.

  45. Leon I accept your kind offer to support the FFA (or whatever the fuck its called when the time comes).

  46. Alone? as in no media or pets for distractions? 3.5 hrs??? The horror…..the horror.

    How long did the kid nap? How long till you considered spiking his sippy with a roofie? (And dont even act like you didnt consider it…)

  47. “3.5 hours alone. I should get a medal or something”

    Or something.

  49. *knees MJ in the nads*

  50. MJ, does the nanny look like Mary Poppins? Julie Andrews or Emily Blunt? If ‘no’, why the hell not?

  51. We lived in Michigan for 5 years. I never wanted to move back here because ‘family’. The distance made them tolerable.

  52. I’m making this tonight.

  53. report back

    That’s a pretty nice site, Jay. Ima try some of those.

  54. MJ, does the nanny look like Mary Poppins? Julie Andrews or Emily Blunt? If ‘no’, why the hell not?

    The dangerous line of schtuppability is to be feared, not sought, in a nanny.

  55. Did that kill it?

  56. Everybody is busy looking up schtuppability in the urban dickshunary.

  57. How long did the kid nap? How long till you considered spiking his sippy with a roofie? (And dont even act like you didnt consider it…)
    ———————
    I roofied myself. Much easier to shut me down than the kiddo.

  58. The nanny is one of the coolest people ever. She grew up in a tiny village in South Africa and moved here about 15 years ago. She has the most beautiful voice and loves lil man a ton.

  59. Is she schtuppable?

  60. Totally but not my type. 7/10 would smash.

  61. Deader than the groundrat Obama dropped.

  62. I saw Smashing Nannies open for Phish in ’98.

  63. New gift idea?

  64. Soaking a roll of toilet paper in capsaicin. Inspired.

  65. Small spray bottle, just “mist” the roll.

  66. *sprays blog with de-icer

  67. i can only guess that everyone is busy booking their hotel rooms for groundhog day…

  68. they’re’

  69. I see the media has put another notch in it’s credibility belt with the story of the empire actor being attacked. I have no doubt the guy was attacked, cept is was by his grinder date gone wrong.

  70. *parachutes into blog, carrying a live woodchuck, two gallons of white latex paint, a small maple wood bedside table, and a sheaf of antique French theater posters by famous artists*

    ‘SUP FAGZ

  71. Hey! I tolerate all manner of shenanigans, but that table is simply going too far!

  72. “This is MAGA country” said no one ever

  73. I thought that this was flavor country.

  74. Any Devo fans?

  75. Fuck, now I want a “This is MAGA country” t-shirt.

  76. I want a Marmot!

  77. https://tinyurl.com/yd44h3h7

  78. Marmots are evil.

  79. I camped with them somewhere. They craved salt.

    If you sweat on it, they would eat it. Shoes, clothes, backpacks…

  83. Hardware delivered. Spending the night in New Orleans. Mr. RFH says he can’t believe his main impression of NOLA is going to be that it’s cold.

  84. mmmmm Etouffe in NOLA

  85. NOLA has to be a trip for Scott and me soon. Maybe this year.

  86. ” Hardware delivered ”

    snickers

  87. still think it’s a great spot for a meatup

  88. vegas too

  89. What a coinkidink, I delivered some hardware today too.

    You know to whom.

  90. Hmmm, a bunch of police got shot serving a drug warrant in Houston. Speculation was it was a cartel drug house. Turns out it was a man and wife, both 58 or 59. Neighbor called in a tip that they were dealing a lot of black tar heroin. Cops break down the door and shoot their dog. Guy comes out with a gun and shoots them. They shoot and kill his wife, then kill him. No heroin. Marijuana and a white powdery substance found. No quantities mentioned.

    So, drug dealers? Possibly.

    Disgruntled neighbor swatting them? Possibly. You never know the real story.

  91. I just folded a fitted sheet into a square.

    IT’S AMAZING!

  92. No etouffee yet, but I did have charbroiled oysters, chicken and andouille gumbo, and bread pudding. Not low carb, but I did walk >14K steps today.

  93. I just folded a fitted sheet into a square.

    I can’t do that.

    …are you a witch?

  95. NOLA is overrated. Joint looked trashed when I visited in ’10. Still had the FEMA markings on buildings in places. Plus I don’t think the locals care much for where they live in too many places.

  96. Don’t ever radiate parasites.
