Badger666 is what my son called me for years as in: don't say a word or mess with me before that first cup of coffee. I don't do mornings.
I was fine with the pre-dawn light as a kid but these old bones wake up slowly these days. Make that 3 (3 cup) mugs of coffee before any chance of suffering fools gladly or otherwise. <VBG>
Badger 666 is just Satan's grumpy old badger giving fair warning although I'm envious that you folks probably see the critters at times. Minnesota had no shortage of golphers but I never saw a badger. Same thing in the Badger State, no badgers. Next was the long gone Nittany Lion.
At least Oregon has ducks & beavers but Nutria will be challenging them soon.
