  1. ooh, I don’t know if I really like that! The plumber left a bunch of holes in my wall looking for several leaks and there was evidence of one of those little critters in my sink! The only comfort I have is the cat I gave DH this year loves to hunt! But I’ll feel a lot better when all the holes are patched.

  2. They are fast,they are nippy. They move around happily. We are the ones who feel threatened. Nice write MMT
