Just call me Mole-Catcher-General

Hang up your Chisels and Plane blades and take a load off with a recently turned goblet of your favourite poison, in the lounge of our Gentlemen's (and ladies) Club.

Just call me Mole-Catcher-General

In the words of Jasper Carrott..."I've got this mole".

Or more specifically probably 9 or 10 across the estate. Most times we let them be but one had started making a nuisance of itself in an area where LOML has been planting. So it had to go.

She was very sceptical about my abilities to catch it. 'Get someone in' aka 'You don't know what you're doing'....grrr! :evil:

Well, proved 'er wrong, didn't I. One dead mole, later. I have a new career.

Nothing as complicated. Just one of these in the right location and set in the right way.

Triplegoshdarnitt!! I knew I'd over-looked something when I chose to move from snake-and-mole-free Nornirn to Northumbria...THAT'S what those funny 'pimple' furrows are in the next field!

Writing as a commited conservationist (and an ex-F.O.T.E.)...those moles had better watch it. I'm really crabbit and narky about enjoying my retirement.
