The heat and drought in the Memphis area are horrible - however, there are some benefits
1) The rotten squirrels that ate the few peaches that survived the spring freeze seem to be thinning out. I hope the little buggers all die. (However, I do hope my big red squirrel who lives in the woods makes it okay)
2) The cowbirds that have been after the figs seem to have disappeared the last couple of days. Maybe it got too hot for them. They are vile creatures.
3) I think the ground finally got too hard for the blasted moles that had trenched up the yard. Good riddance!
4) My husband found a snake skin in the woods - 6 feet 9 inches long! Do you think the evil thing may die in this heat? If I were to run up on that thing while out for a walk, I think I would croak.
