Don't you hate it when...


...the mice start eating your clothes? Sometimes it's difficult having two homesteads and having to keep rodents out of both at the same time. Sometimes we don't achieve this end. We returned to Kaabong last week to find several shirts eaten right off the hanger. Seriously, a tank top had no more shoulder straps. Below is a beloved t-shirt that had the misfortune of having its collar eaten away. So far I've lost three shirts and had multiple others nibbled on. I think it's time to box our clothes up for the sake of preservation. We've patched every hole in the ceiling that we can find, but we keep our eyes open for any other destruction lurking in dark corners.

Oh the dreaded nibbles and feasts! At least you know you're never alone... ;/. Maybe that's not such a comfort. Off of the hanger is pretty bad! Have the been munching on tupperware?

We kept a good crop of CATS to take care of mice and rats. We never saw any in the house...but many in the big shed! Hope they don't get in your bed!! : )

Maybe you should feed your mice better? Then they wouldn't be so hungry and have to eat your clothes. Duh!

Jackson says for you to keep a black mamba in your shirt drawer--just shows how little he knows about the needs of black mambas!
