8 April 2013 “Shotguns full of silver, bullets made of glass”

“String barbed wire at your feet and do not let you pass!”

Cassi Creek:  The joys of rural life continue.  The pollen count and other spring allergens are challenging my immune system, and my ability to metabolize diphenhydramine HCL. 
          We appear to have been graced with a large, perhaps gestating raccoon.  It has decided that Gloria’s bird feeders are its favorite source of easy food.  Now that the humming bird feeders are going up, Gloria is less interested in having raccoons around.  I chased it twice yesterday evening.   I suspect it will be back today.  It looks as if it is time to bring the trap out again.  That creates a problem too, as it is illegal to relocate them after they are trapped. 
          The well continues to be cloudy and muddy.  We follow the procedures we were told would clear it.  This morning it was almost clear.  This afternoon it is turbid and muddy again.  We have a call in to the well folks.  There was a pressure loss that does not make us at all comfortable. 
          The Pathfinder threw another “service engine” warning Saturday evening.  I recall that about two weeks after  we replaced an O2 sensor two years ago, a warning appeared that was a non-reproducible catalytic converter alert.  I was hoping that this was a repeat situation.   Fortunately, it was.  No immediate need for repairs and no additional expense beyond gasoline today.  
          We will see what the rest of the day brings.
