Yesterday when I was going to work, I saw sitting on the sidewalk outside my office a huge rat. About twice the size of a normal squirrel.
All together now . . .
The little bastard didn’t even have the decency to run into the bushes. He just sat there. I had to walk around him. And let me tell you, I made a very wide circle around him. No, no. I mean an extremely wide circle. Like two city blocks.
And then I started wondering how many rats there are in my office building. Not a happy thought. What if they all heard about the Mouse-a-thon and decided they wanted to volunteer?
I’m glad the only rodents in my condo are catnip mice. Though Lucy promises to protect me from all miscellaneous rodentia.
We’ve had huge thunderstorms with tornado threats the past two evenings. A lot of people in this area are still without electricity. Fortunately for me, mine never went out.
Lucy is fearless. She doesn’t bat a whisker at the biggest thunder crash. So maybe she would protect me from marauding rodents.
Hmmmmmmmm . . .
I finished the first sleeve!
Except for the shoulder strap, of course. Instead of knitting that last night, I started the second sleeve. I’ll do the strap this wekeend, and hopefully get some good photos documenting the process.
Time to head off to work, to do battle with The Database From Hell. Whoever designed it ought to be punished. Severely.
