I Have A Gopher!

I have a gopher that has been terrorizing my back yard! 

He started months ago in the grass.

Then he moved to this planter by the cactus.
 Next he moved to the planter right outside the den.
 Which is this one.
 This morning he showed up in this planter

Which is this one.
 None of these planters are connected to each other.

I was showing Jarrod and I had made the comment, "Wonder where he will show up next?" Jokingly, Jarrod pointed to my houseplant and said, "Maybe there."

Which reminded me of my Uncle Willard's old house. 
I babysat, did some housecleaning, and laundry for my Uncle Willard years ago. (No I'm not saying how many years ago, but it was years ago!)

And I went into his bedroom to put away some clothes and there was this mound of dirt against one wall! It was about 10 inches high and came out a good foot or more from the wall. So I asked him, "What's with the mound of dirt in your bedroom?" And what did he tell me, "I have a gopher." 
How the gopher came up in the bedroom, I have no idea, but it was the strangest thing ever.
