This year, I have a particular reason to give thanks. I'm truly thankful for El Niño. The Catican Guard recruits are absolutely annihilating my irrigation system. Fortunately, El Niño will bring plenty of rain this winter so I don't have to rely on the shattered remnants of my drippers.
Hopefully the new Guards will grow up in the next few months and get over the chewing phase.
There are plenty more out in the yard where this came from, all in an equally ruined state.
Here's hoping you have plenty to be thankful for as well.
