In Torrington, Alberta, there is the world-famous "Gopher Hole Museum". I'm not kidding, it really IS world famous! It was not world famous until PETA got wind of it and protested. That made it world famous.
Before I go any further, I have to warn you. If you ARE a PETA member, or if you have any objection to seeing gophers in what some might consider compromising positions, please click your back key and visit me tomorrow. Now that I've warned you, we'll go forth. Please keep in mind that there are a BAZILLION gophers in the world and their burrows trip horses who then break their legs and have to be put down as a result. And if I sound like a redneck, it may be because I am.
First, the little critters fight back. Probably hunting hunters.
It must have been one fine meal. Probably included bumbleberry pie, I'll bet.
On the way to a fire call, one of the fire-fighter tripped and fell. His colleague has a good sense of humour, but I don't see him making a move to help.
A parishioner finds the sermon a tad boring. I can relate.
Young love. You can't see the Harley in the foreground.
Hanging out at the town pool hall.
The high school fashion show. I'll bet there is a dance after. Wanna chaperone?
A joyous occasion.
A Royal Canadian Mounted Gopher and his trusty dog, Fluffy.
Drama at the beauty parlour.
This one's for Jana.
Vancouver or bust.
If you're still with me, you must find these funny, as did I. When I was in the museum, there were some young women looking at the vignettes and laughing so hard they were crying. One of them said she has some, shall we say, incontinence issues. She should have been in my shoes, I could have used a pair of Depends.
