Get Off My Lawn!

With Bad Cohen about to head back for another term teaching undergrads that yes, music existed before 50 Cent, we both snorted our way through this excellent commentary on this year's "Beloit College Mindset" List.

Whistle Pigs

A few days into our "vacation" (aka visiting relatives) I called our neighbor to ask how the cats were doing.

"They're fine," she said, "but we didn't realize they were working cats."


"Well, since they've been locked indoors, the groundhogs have eaten everything in our garden."

"Oh, shit. Sorry." Since our yard has a gate, they'd left it alone.

Or so we thought.

About 10 minutes later, she texted me. "Just came outside and saw one sitting on top of the fence eating your green bean leaves."

This is what we came home to:

Sure hope those groundhogs taste good, because we aren't going to be eating any green beans this year.
