Still working on the next installment of BotCon pics.
But, I had these woodchuck/groundhog/land beaver/ground squirrel/mutant kitty pics prepared from before I left on vacation. Just didn't get a chance to post them.
Apparently, a family of 'chucks have been squatting under my back shed. Slagging varmints.

That's the mom on the railroad tie, with a baby under her chin.  Two more are off to the left, near the entrance to the burrow. 
I was taking the pics from inside the house, through the slats in the 2nd floor deck.
I saw 5 babies in total.



Here the mom was climbing on my woodpile.  (I gotta get that stacked one of these days.)
The babies were running around through the ferns.



Mom and 2 babies.



Mom took off to the left into the woods with 2 babies following, and then these 2 guys were playing in the shed.



I think they are gone now.  I hope so.

They're cute, but... Varmints.

I find your icon to be exactly what you need to get rid of them.

Appropriate commercial is appropriate:

HAHAHA - I love that commercial.
Makes me laugh everytime I see it.
I should have remembered to add it to the post.
Glad you did!

It's one of my favorites! I have the mp3 file of "Hey you dang woodchucks! Quit chuckin' my wood!" on my phone. I can email it to you so you can put it on your phone, if you want. :)

that would be a funny ringtone.
Sure, email it and I'll try to figure out how to add it. I'm still struggling with learning stuff on my phone - I think I'm too old to comprehend the complexity of modern gadgets. :(

A lot of times you can Google how to do certain things—I had to do that with my Android when Dirk didn't know the answers. PM me your email addy!

They are cute when babies, but very destructive critters as adults.
