Random Fact #42

I own a small animal trap and I know how to use it.

Here is the "white beast" of Tampa......Teh Opossum. I set out my trap last night after looking all over the house for the Mage Cat. After no luck finding her I set the trap just in case she slipped out the door. She is a sneaky one.

Some time between 3-7 am this little fella got trapped.

I have not trapped anything today.....but I did find the Mage Cat safe and sound sleeping in one of my desk drawers.

The Ghillie Suit

The Josh wanted to go as a sniper for Halloween. Sadly, the costume did not get started until October.....two weeks before Halloween. Yeah Yeah Yeah I know. Craziness. After much research I came up with a plan on how to construct the ghillie suit. Much burlap was purchased and dyed. I am a little worried about what our neighbors think of us now seeing the burlap was drying on the front porch. The burlap was dyed browns, greens, black, tan, and grays. Each The Sunday before Halloween is when the actual ghillie suit started to take form.
This is after the two days of connecting the burlap.

Here it is in the dark.

Here is the ghillie suit on the ground.

Here is the finished object.

All that is left to do is make the hat.

It took over 95 hours to attach the burlap. I think I will be waiting a little while before I start on that.

Happy NaBloPoMo!

Happy November! It has been ages since I have blogged at all. Lets see if I can make it for the entire month of November. This week I want to download the pictures on my camera. Once that occurs I will throw them up for all to see. This weekend was very interesting.

Tonight will be a short post due to having a really long week last week. I think I just need to decompress a bit. So tonight that will mean some puppy love and learning my way around my new work lappy. Windows 7 seems to be interesting....

Here is a quick photo of the puppy love I am looking forward to!
