Caddyshack flashback

The movie "Caddyshack", which was released in theaters in 1980, is a comedy centered around the ridiculous characters at a country club golf course.

Bill Murray's character in the movie (Carl Spackler) spends a lot of time using a variety of methods to rid the golf course of a surprisingly smart and elusive gopher.

I saw a gopher in the back parking area at KGUN today.  It was munching on mesquite seed pods that had fallen off of nearby trees.  The little critter wouldn't let me get close, but I used a telephoto lens to get the best picture that I could.  It was a pretty decent sized gopher.

It reminded me of Caddyshack.  If you haven't seen the movie, it's an 80's classic.  Stupid and hilarious.  Just how I like my movies.
