notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Man vs. Beast, Round 2

No, this post is not about Rasheed Wallace.

What's even more impressive than shooting an insanely large pig for three hours? Try wrestling a leopard in your underwear.
A man clad only in underwear and a T-shirt wrestled a wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family.

The best part of this story?
[Arthur] Du Mosch's pet cat was in the bed with him at the time, along with his young daughter who had been frightened by a mosquito in her own room.
Kids, take heed: This is the kind of shit that happens when you wake up your parents because you're afraid of a mosquito in your room. Or a fly. You get in their bed, nobody can sleep, everyone's uncomfortable because it's too damned crowded and you wiggle around too much and then -- BAM! -- next thing you know a fucking leopard jumps in through the window and dad has to wrestle it to the floor in his underwear.

Cleo, I'm talking to you. The next time a bug wakes you up in the middle of the night, do us all a big favor and just go back to sleep.
