I would ask on my community's FB page, but it seems kinda rude to post a picture of weird poo!
My neighborhood FB page would be much livelier if people posted pictures of weird poo!

You can at least rule out wombats.  Continent notwithstanding, they poop cubes rather than globules.  I suspect someone (possibly even you?) probably already linked to that article here.

I found an odd set of prints crossing much of the library's lot this morning.  It's something small.  Probably a varmint of some kind, or maybe a cat.  They're sunk too deep to be able to see the shape of the foot.

I've also seen what appear to be deer tracks on the edge of my yard.  That's surprising.  Although I do live near the edge of town, I had never supposed that they ventured through people's front yards in the neighborhood at night.
Don't lay up treasures for yourselves on Earth, where they can decay or be stolen.  Lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where there is no decay or theft.  Where your treasure is, you heart will be also.


You can't take it with you.  You can only send it on ahead.

I was bushwhacking in the woods the other day, and found several piles of strange scat, a fair hike apart. I wonder what it is? I guess it's probably just really weird deer scat (really quite large, in a soft tower of globules), but I've never seen it like that before (nor so big). It also seems like the wrong season for ruminant scat to look like that, but... I guess the general absence of winter means the vegetation is always kinda wet? Shrug.

Do you have elk? (I think so if you're where I think think you are). Their scat is like deer scat but larger.

Hehe, very true!

Hmm, maybe. It looks kind of right for elk. I don't think I'm in their preferred habitat, but a chunk of the mainland is, so they could swim over. The occasional bear and cougar swim over, but while the scat's the right size for a bear, it doesn't look right. I don't think anyone's ever seen and elk over here (or a moose, for that matter), but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

So: the options seem to be either the biggest deer scat ever, or an elk led astray!
I know it's a genus.

Also, apparently it's reading week this week. I thought it was next week. Sigh.

Of course, sounds like they're retiring/retired now, but....wow.

+1, just.......wow.  Incredible.  Thanks so much for sharing the link.

Your "mentee" came to the interview with holes in his clothes, and he left his air-buds in the entire time the committee talked to him. And we know he has money, because he told us who his father is quite a few times (it's weird how teenagers seem to think all adults like each other).

The other interviews went really well. Just sayin' that it ain't looking good.
