16th day- 349 days follow
Fair and cold 0 to 10 at noon.
Lots of Juncos on the hill, and a flock of crows.
Saw tracks in the snow where some quail had gone into a chuck hole to keep warm last night.
When I used to trap I occasionally caught a quail in the skunk hole.
A funny one happened some time in the night. Thel woke me up and said there was a rat in the bathroom, so I went in and found it in the bowl. Thel gave me the plunger and I tried to drown it by pushing it down in the water. When I thought it should be dead, I lifted up the plunger and the rat had gone down the pipe.
We had a letter from Ski from Florida.
Thel has gone to club meeting.
