Wizard Vs. The Gopher

The Gopher is winning! LOL! For over a week now Wizard’s been trying to get rid of this gopher.

Every single more there’s a fresh pile of dirt.

The battle is EPIC people. Wizard is totally on the warpath, and the gopher is laughing his rodent ass off. I don’t know what’s going to happen…stay tuned…

Otherwise the weekend was good. Saturday was wild, wet and fun :-) It was the last pool party of the season with CPA Boy, Special K and four of their nieces and nephews. We had a blast.

Sunday I was back to work on the novella revisions. I conquered Chapter One on Friday so I’m now ripping apart Chapter Two and once I get this fixed up, it should all flow much better.

How was your weekend?

    Yay for the pool party! And now I want to dig out our DVD of Caddyshack and watch it! :D

    Long weekend at the retreat. Got a whole…50 words written? But I did help my CP totally revise and replot her current WIP so progress I guess. Still, it was good food, good company, and lots of laughter. Problem is, I’m sleep deprived and feel hungover even if I didn’t drink and I just want to curl up and nap. No time for that!

    Now get to work on Chp. 2!!!!

    Silver, 50 words, LOL! Yep that’s usually how it goes for me at those things too! Now you just need a little rest and you’ll be right back on track. So glad you had fun and helped your CP!

    I’m back from the gym and working :-) Hope you get some rest and have a productive day.

    Poor Wizard. Has been trying to trap him in a live cage/trap? That’s what we use. Our problem is we take the critters away and release them and they beat us back home ;). Any way I hope Wizard is successful in removing the little bugger.

    I loved the photo of the pool party. Those kids were having a great time. That must bring so much joy to you and Wizard seeing those happy faces.

    How is Chapter two coming along today? I hope you’ve chewed it up and made it flow smoothly.

    Have a great evening :).

    Viki, Wizard’s tried various things. We can’t find the hole yet, just the dirt mounds. It’s in ice plant on a hill so it’s hard to track. This is one of the zillion times we wished Bailey was here–he’d find that gopher :-) (And thinking about that makes us smile with good memories)

    Thanks on the pool party pic. They were having a blast. The four kids were so good and respectful that I had zero stress other than just watching for safety (because drowning is silent and we’re vigilant). It was joyful day.

    I’m working on chapter two, it’s just a process.

    Hope you have a great night!

    Varmint-cong? And now I keep picturing Wizard as Bill Murray. LOL

    I’m so glad you had a fun weekend. I saw the pic on FB and it looked like everyone was having a blast. Yay! I knew you’d kick Chapter One’s butt, just like I know you’ll mail Chapter Two. Keep up the good words!

    Typical post-publication weekend here. Fishing, watching football, etc. Did some reading. Vegetated.

    B.E., Congrats on getting UP WISH CREEK done and published! I bought my copy and its waiting for me on my Kindle. You deserved to relax this weekend.

    I’m making progress, thanks! Life stuff keeps rearing it’s ugly head, but I’m pushing forward.

    Hope you’re having a good evening!

    Laura, oh darn I didn’t see this comment last night, but it’s a very funny coincidence!
