Was taking a break between tasks to do a little organizing and so I had my ear plugs out and happened to hear rustling in the woods and out came today's mascot. Gorgeous creature, totally shocked me. I thought it was some kind of fancy domesticated cat it first with that bushy tail.

That would be a high dollar skunk to the taxidermy market. I dream of catching em like that one.

Skunks are easy to handle, (I prefer them over most furbearers) once you get over being scared of the occasional trainwreck. Just a little injectable shot, and they go to sleep. 99/100 they dont loose a drop of the juice (which is worth $$ too). I dont shoot em.

A skunk is a fearful animal. Everything eats them, they are literally running for their lives from the moment their mom poops em out. If you talk to them nice and quiet they settle right now, docile as a kitten. I have several friends who have them as pets, they are great if raised properly.

So what's this?

IMG_8934s.jpg


500 lbs of wintergreen smokeless tobacco. Here's some quick math.

Popular size of smokeless tobacco can = 1.2 oz. @ $5.99

16 oz / 1.2 oz = 13.33

500 lbs x 13.33 x $5.99 = $39,900.

Silver, that's subtle, and insightful. Spoiler is in light font, just highlight it to see it clearly.
I see the "Bernie" bumper sticker and the tragically unusable trailer hitch. Stupid liberal thinks that wanting something, and making an uneducated effort, is going to make it "just work".

The sad part is the fate of the tobacco. We have to throw it all out when we are done. Even the stuff we didn't use. Which it about 2 of those bins.

I took these shots a few years back (2009) standing on an outlook spot where you could pull off the road just East of Salt Lake on Emmigration Canyon Road. I remember stopping at Ruth's Diner (good food) a few miles back closer to the city.

I was just in the local park a bit earlier this evening. I saw this hawk flying and tried to zoom in and get a shot. I like the way the sun highlighted its wings as it was going down and the bird was mostly a silhouette.
