A RAT IN THE BELFRY
Came home Sunday to discover that somewhere in this house there is a “varmint” who loves bread as much or more than I do. For the last couple of weeks, my housekeeper and I have been noticing holes in loaves of bread, sometimes unopened and often in the middle of the loaf, not on the ends. Until this morning I thought nothing of it but we substituted English muffins for a loaf of bread and lo and behold, there was a hole which appeared sometime last night in one of the English muffins. And, Dr. Watson, there was a small hole in the “Thomas’ promises” cellophane wrapping right above where the English muffin resided. Now I found myself really getting irritated. It is a sign of a second rodent, the first seems to have electrocuted itself behind the electric range. Now an exterminator must come. track down the pesky varmint, and hopefully find out where and how they are getting in. I know that many of my readers will have had the same experience before but it is my first with an unwanted intruder. I will keep you posted on the “hunt for grey October” and be back later today, hopefully, with something far more substantial to occupy your time than this whimsy.
