Gophers, etc.

My swiss chard has been eaten by a gopher or groundhog. The lawn is torn up in a huge area also. What can be done to get rid of it (them?) I will have to spend a considerable amount of time and energy digging out my raised beds and placing a screen shield, then replacing the soil and plants. Ugh.

Well it is not happening this weekend as I am off to a work function for several days.

There is a huge, front page article in todays, NYTimes on the Block Cancer Center. I just happened to be reading Dr. Block’s book. I have been thinking a lot about quality versus quantity of life lately. I am not yet dying but I am thinking about what I want to get done before I do die. This has been more pressing since my diagnosis. Well. For now, I am focusing on my work and learning new skills. In a few weeks I will learn about my retirement options and see what is possible.
