    My advice: absolutely 100% leave those snakes alone! They are harmless to you but are excellent FREE rodent control, and tick infested disease carrying rodents are way more dangerous than those lovely garters. Get to know them, name them, and enjoy their company. They’re cool fairly docile creatures that are good to have around.

    I’ve purchased 8 of them. Not all at once. You get used to it.

    Came across that little lovely pulling arrows on Monday.

    I will never understand that. Those spiders are so cool and harmless, very fun to play with and crawl up and down the arm. But I’m always catching spiders and taking them outside for the wife, so I know you’re not alone.

    This is my first and there is a chance I will be moving in October and an even smaller chance I'll move before then. It is the cheapest house in the neighbor hood and the rental market is super low right now so even if I do move I think I will be alright. I have two potential roommates lined up to help offset the mortgage payment, not that I need help I would just like to keep more of my cash. But 280,000 is a lot of money....

    How will you manage the property if you move?

    I’m not a fan of buying for that short of a term. You’re assuming an awful lot.

    You should probably send Molly to me so she doesn't get scared. Although, I'm scared at that 280K number. WTF. Everyone should move to the hood in PGH with us.

    Good luck to everyone on trying to not say Garvis instead of Jarvis now.

    I make TR kill them. Doesn't she know that they'll just come back in and try to touch her???



    I took a walk on TRs trails today, the mx track and the single track loop since my jacked up paw can't ride motors or bicycles or a spin bike. *sigh* - T minus 6 days until thumb injury diagnosis. The good news is, it only hurts when I try to use it.

    A house in the northwest is actually a pretty good hedge.

    Let me think about sending Molly to you... No. But you and Yinzer are more than welcome to visit. I will have room.

    Anything below 250 around here gets pretty ghetto pretty quick... I'd love to buy an acre or 5 and put up a metal shop with a small living quarters but I don't have that kind of time.

    But then we’d have to live in the capitol of pennsyltucky with shitty winter (below zero steeler game, AYFN?) and no ocean. No tanks, maybe in the summer, I do want to canoe and fly fish the wilderness section y’all have running thru the forest.

    I excel in demolition and landscaping and I'm halfway handy at putting stuff back together but my dad knows what he is doing and one of my friends is a residential contractor.

    Step 1. Remove perimeter arborvitaes
    Step 2. Build fence
    Step 3. Install doggy door so Molly has free reign of outside/inside
    Step 4. Convince girl to move in and cook for me.
    Step 5. Replace deck
    Step 6. re-landscape for a bigger yard remove more arborvitaes
    Step 7. New carpet.
    Step 8. Paint exterior
    Step 9. To be determined.

    I’d rather come across a gator than a cottonmouth any day. That is a downright mean snake. At least rattlers generally just want to be left alone and will run first, but a cottonmouth is always lookin for a fight. A gator will fuck up a dog for sure. My dad said, when he lived in Tampa 60-66, always knew one was in the neighborhood when little dogs started disappearing. That would suck.

    I hate me some water mocs. I have been bitten on the boots and pants by them multiple times. My oldest brother did a long stretch in ICU wondering first if he would die then whether he would lose his foot. It is the only snake I know that attacks humans.

    My big golden swam with gators literally everyday. There weren't any giants so they left him alone. He got mauled by a claw in the winter on the bank. So, I think he caught one sunning and got too close. The vet said mud in his fur and a cold night saved him from bleeding to death. He was a sad sight when I finally found him.

    That’s tough. When i was a kid we had a picapoo that wandered up to our house out of the woods covered in mange and ticks. So we took her in and named her muffin. Really awesome dog that was very possessive of us kids. We were in the front yard playing with the neighbors Doberman and white Shepard when she comes tearing out in full attack mode. By the time we got those dogs off of her she had blood coming from just about every where as they each had a set of legs and nearly tore in half. She ended up ok after a month of recovery but it was brutal on all of us and her.

    I’m a FMO now. Tough young men and women having fun making a little money in the summer in beautiful remote places and watching them grow and learn is still the coolest part of this gig.

    It was crazy how my riding deteriorated. I didn’t feel tired but I just was a day late and dollar short on everything.
    I’d buy some and sport it!
