    Rat, you should not have used the Stihl’s operating manual as one of the books.

    This probably won’t occur to him since gophers and rats are so closely related, but instead of putting rocks over each of the holes, he should have sent a snake down each one.

    Or a ferret, if that’s legal where you live.

    Next time Rat put several lit road flares in the holes before covering. Good old car-mon, kills them every time !

    No one else wonders where the gophers got the chainsaw?

    When it comes to Pastis, I believe we are better off not knowing. But he sure does have a good sense of humor!

    You could always fill all the holes with dyunamite like Bill Murray did in Caddyshack. :o

    Some golf tournament is near where I live. On Friday’s extra edition it had the gopher from “Caddyshack” & the line “That kangaroo just stole my ball”! lol

    I watched gophers pull down a 6 foot sunflower, inch by inch, until only the flower was left on the surface!

    Can’t help but won’t hurt Department: Empty your cat’s litter box in the holes. The cat smell will drive the critters away without killing them, so I’m told.

    Anyone else think of the song “Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts” here?

    With a very active clowder prowling my property I rarely have any damage in the pastures or the lawn around the house any more. What I DO have are deceased offerings left by the driver’s side door of my vehicle or up on the front deck – moles, mice, snakes, birds, gophers, the occasional quail……

    Looks like they decided to gopher broke on this one.
