I shoulda packed up my Beretta and some #6 for some pass shooting down in Punta Gorda when Charley came through. I wonder how much wind it takes to blow a cat off a wooden fence? Or from the inside of a double wide... Well, I'll know better next time! I'll just bet that 140 mph cats be tougher than the 8 station on a breezy day!

I saw two flat cats in the middle of the road on the way in to work today.

And they were too flat to go "bump" in the dark too.

...and on your moonlight night you got your dead toad frogs!



Ya know, it's a shame the rest of the world is clueless about roadkill. Well, most of the rest of it anyway...

This morning at oh-dark-thirty, on the way to work, I heard the scanner cackle with a caller reporting she biffed a deer and it disabled her truck.

Sounds like it would be a right tender piece of venison.

I don't run over toads or frogs, I drive around them. Skeeter eaters don't deserve to be thinned out. I need as many of them as possible.

140 MPH cats would be tough targets indeed, as well as quite dangerous to hunt. Adds a whole new dimension to the requirements of a "stopping cartridge". Hmmm. . . .

It's not just the wind though, but what the wind blows. My dad just weathered the storm down there and said that lemons, oranges and grapefruits moving at 140 were penetrating the exterior house walls. Many houses were badly damaged merely by organic projectiles. I hear the natives try to shake the coconuts down before the storm hits, too.

Dunno Clay, I've always seen them grown as small indoor ornamentals. I'll ask dad next e-mail out, he was raised in upper FL/lower AL, lived here for a good while and then retired to the Port Charlotte area.

The fruit would be about the right size needed for popular small game, though, now that you mention it. . . .

Not familiar with Osage Orange down here, but WTF do I know?

On the subject of organinc projectiles, I'd not considered the hazard of flying fruits. That could be especially hazardous in Key West and Coconut Grove. Locals do trim coconuts though, and I know of a house that had an uninvited 50# sea bass come inside on Guam back in '62. Stop signs can be a special thrill...
