I have mouse traps all over the place and have not caught any yet. Put out the trail cams today. So hopefully I see what it is tomorrow.

Thumbs up.  I always love to see Roddie Romero and the Hub City All stars too.  Some French language sung sometimes.

So glad your eye is doing so well. Know it is a treat to see so well. Good luck with your computer. I really don't do any fancy stuff on mine so guess that is why I am doing ok on it with Windows 10. When I do my garden next Spring, I may put a few pics up but will let my sister handle it-----will watch and learn hopefully.

Rabbit, thanks for checking on me , the eye is doing just fine , after a lifetime of being nearsighted in the right eye it is now at 20/25. I now have a Toric implant in that eye to correct the astigmatism. I'll be through with the first week of eye drops  Monday. My left eye has almost 20/20 but images are not very bright. I can really tell the difference now. Cataract will be removed on it Dec. 4th. I'm still trying to get used to this new computer, don't like it, don't know how to re-size a picture, Jewel had the Kodak program in the other computer and it was easy to use. I'm pretty sure I've already done something wrong that will take a computer genius to straighten it out. I'm not used to not knowing what I'm doing.

Wondering if anyone has had this, and what did they do for it? My left eye has an affliction. The skin above and below it nearer the inner corners has gotten dry, itchy, red, and wrinkly---YUCK!! I look like a real winner! I read numerous things on the internet(many people have had this, and doctors offer little or no relief) and seems it is either from an allergy, bacteria, fungus, or an autoimmune disease. In other words they don't have a clue what really causes it. I have tried cortisone cream, antibiotic ointment, antimicrobial stuff which also kills fungal infections, and even petroleum jelly. Nothing helps. We have some Christmas parties coming up to go to and am thinking about bowing out. Ha, maybe I could wear an eye patch and could go as a Christmas pirate!! If anyone has ever had this affliction or knows someone who has(and if they got any relief from something), I would really appreciate the info.

I  can not speak for a liquid application but I bought granular Castor oil and sprinkled it heavily and often around the perimeter of the HT and at their entrance holes and I did not see any difference in the number of rodents invading my space.

Snap traps definitely work
