Pa- FUTCHCAIRO

Post by bman »

Pa emailed me yesterday to get his password reset...
Looking forward to hearing from him again!

The flaming armadillos is still one of my favorite stories ever!

Good news. Always fun to hear some of Pa's stories from his lengthy time on the water.

Am I the only one who is not intrigued about hearing the flaming armadillo story?

As told by PA:

"THE STORY ABOUT THE ARMADILLOS IS A TRUE ONE. ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO THE ARMADILLOS WERE TEARING OUR LAWN UP EVERY NIGHT. I DECIDED TO SEE IF I COULD FIND THEIR HOLE. I FINALLY FOUND WHERE THEY WERE RAISING THEIR YOUNG. IT WAS IN A HOLE UNDER A BLOWN OVER HICKORY TREE. IT WAS ABOUT 8' WIDE AND MAYBE 6' DEEP. I SAT OFF FROM THE HOLE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR AND NONE CAME OUT. I WENT BACK TO THE SHOP AND GOT ABOUT 2 GAL OF DIESEL FUEL IN A HAND HELD SPRAYER, CARRIED A PINT OF GAS AND WENT TO THE HOLE. I SPRAYED THE DIESEL DOWN INTO THE HOLD AND I COOULD HEAR THOSE BUGGERS RUSTLING AROUND DOWN IN THE HOLD, I POURED THE GAS DOWN THE HOLE AND THREW A MATCH IN TO START THE FIRE, SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE THAT. THOSE ARMADILLOS STARTED COMING OUT OF THAT PLACE AND ALL OF THEM WERE ON FIRE, I SHOT 18 AS THEY CAME OUT. THE REST OF THEM WENT FLYING OFF OUT INTO THE WOODS AND BEFORE I KNEW IT ALL OF THE WOODS WERE ON FIRE. I RAN BACK TO THE SHOP AND GOT THE TRACTOR , WHICH HAD THE DISC ALREADY HITCHED UP, IT TOOK ME ABOUT 4 HOURS OF DISCING BEFORE I GOT THE FIRE CONTAINED. AFTER THE FIRE DIED DOWN I STARTED LOOKING FOR THE ARMADILLOS THAT CAME OUT AND STARTED THE FIRES. AT THE FINAL COUNT I HAD ROUNDED UP A TOTAL OF 56 ARMADILLOS DEAD. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL COME BACK INTO THE LAWN SINCE THEN BUT WAS ABLE TO NAIL THEM WITH THE RIFLE. THE LAST 2 YEAR HAVE NOT BEEN BOTHERED WITH ANY.

I needed that. Just laughed my ass off at the mental image of a bunch of flaming armadillos running around setting crap on fire.

Its true alright, I saw the evidence and posted the first hint of the tale.
PA was kind enough to fill in the detail. :-)

That shot of Steve, aka Jumptrout, was taken as he was tying a lure back on after picking a birds nest of mono out of his bait-casting reel. :lol:

Miss the old curmudgeon's posts, too.

Man, if the Armadillo event was on video it would have been epic, Futch should probably just wear a GoPro camera all the time.
