Gophering tool basket

This is my Gophering tool basket, complete with all the essential tools of the trade.  Can you believe that this wonderful milk crate was wastefully discarded on the side of the road.  When I saw it, it was like hearing the voices of angles.  I knew instantly it's purpose was not to sit there and gather dust.  It would serve humankind in a much better cause, GOPHERING!

I will describe the individual tools and equipment at a later time.  However, I wanted to show you the tool kit in it's "ready to go" state.  I keep this out side in an easily accessible spot.  At the first sign of a gopher, I put on my lucky gophering hat (to be shown later) and spring into action.

This is my faithful gophering canine companion Cricket.  She follows me around the yard and watches intently as I set traps.  She has, on a few occasions, been known to eat gophers.  I have no objections to her eating them; however I have to adjust her food intake and don't let her lick your face.
