Random tidbits

Because my life is a never ending series of nothing important.

A 48 inch pike. While this man looks proud, they’re actually an invasive species that are destroying our lake’s natural ecosystems. People catch and release because no one wants to eat them.

A blackberry lime sour from Mast Landing brewery. Pink, tart and strangely creamy. Yum!

Our local pub has started serving Naan flatbreads. Sweet potato, bacon, caramelized onions, blue cheese with a honey maple drizzle. Double yum!

Our resident fox is coming earlier in the evening to beat the skunks and raccoons to the buffet.

We’ve had nothing but rain all month and our lawn is really getting torn up by the deer herd. Going to be a lot of yard work in our future.

      1. That’s what I was thinking they should do with them, make it a sport and don’t throw them back, but make some use out of them. Maybe their skin is good for fashion and their guts for gardens.

  1. Just like the tegu, open season and a bounty on pike. That’ll get them out with a minimum of damage to native species and habitat. Take note, catching a four foot pike is bound to be a LOT of fun, and no one should feel too bad about it because, noble cause or not, catching fish is fun.

    1. They are edible. I suppose every fish is…. but they’re like carp, no one wants to eat them. At least up here.
      As for the fox vs squirrel dilemma, that little red witch is too wily to show her face when he’s around.

      1. Or, just a thought here, you could soak your brain in about eight or nine glasses of the pink drink (It rhymes. See how I did that?), until your tastebuds have their beer goggles firmly attached. Then it should be delicious, I guess.

  2. The cocktail/beer looks refreshing.
    Why do a catch and release instead of a catch and dispose of if they are invasive?
    Foxes are so pretty; I’m glad that one is being taken care of.

  3. It’s amazing this pike pic came up – only yesterday I was reading about how invasive species arrive in are impacting Canada’s great lakes. Very informative article about how invasive things are moving around the world via shipping etc. I think you’ll find it interesting: https://canadiangeographic.ca/articles/space-invasion-is-it-too-late-to-save-the-great-lakes/?fbclid=IwAR1x0_TRvP0OGo9MKpvwG97GYvZX56nwaXXq-zu_6_Ntgu6O237O9IHibj0
