Marshal Rooster Cogburn once killed a rat. It was all legal though. He had- and I quote- "A rat writ, writ for a rat".

On the topic of bats...although I posted this story before... this thread reminds me of the time when a client wanted one of my formulas for an approved sample I made, only wanting another company to do the work. Rather than send them the actual formula for their other painters, I had changed out 2 key ingredients with Sunleaves brand Jamaican Bat Guano and Growler Brand Wolf Urine, giving them sh$t and pi$$ instead, sending them the link to the PredatorPee store where they could purchase the wolf urine:

I was afraid to open it up wondering where you were going with it.
That was funny enough to make me consider getting a smart phone just for laughs!

Motorola is redoing the Razor flip phone...an updated version. It will be $1500, so I'm sure it's plenty smart. But will have that "throwback" flip case.

I certainly remember when the flip phone was cuttin' edge....now it's nostalgic!!!

The book also describes the unique bond between the dogs and their handlers, and the incredible feeling of loss and honor when one is wounded or killed in action.

The following site is an organization James Hatch started. https://www.spikesk9fund.org/

No joke- I spit my wine out projectile...had to go tell the Mr & we laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe...chambers filled with hibernating Mexicans....

With the onset of global warming, hibernation has become a thing of the past. This bomb will not work under present day meteorological conditions.

Chalk one up for global warming!

With record November low temps here in the NE, I think we’ve finally crossed the temp peak this interglacial period and are now on the downward temperature slope in what some hope to be the beginnings of a global cooling cycle with CO2 levels to follow...wishful thinking, huh?

I did watch a couple of videos on the bat bomb after reading this post. Seems to have been a pretty effective device and might have been used if it weren’t for the development of the atomic bomb.

So you're telling me that land I speculated on in Hammondsport on the theory that it would be oceanfront by 2030 is a bust???

With global warming & sea level rise the way it is, my home being 13 strides from the bay separated from the ocean by a barrier beach, thinking I might have prime oceanfront by 2030 had I not been moving. The ocean did claim my childhood oceanfront home in 2012.

The remake wasn't better just different. I have seen the original countless times. They filmed it 25 miles from where I live now.
