    Little fella fell for the old "tuna in the trap" trick. We are under a burn ban, which makes it unsafe to fire up the pit so we will just let him go across the river. Right now he is sleeping in the shade. Poor little guy just wants some food but he keeps messing with our feathered food so he has to be relocated.

    Around here they stay with their mothers through the winter. I could never drown any animal. That's a horrible way to die.

    Quote:Thankfully we are not on fire down here yet. Lots of folks around Bastrop and Grimes county are though. Please pray for all these folks and the firefighters and other emergency workers. Yes, Texas is on fire!
