Do You Honestly Think You Can Win?

So, as stated in my previous post, I'm in Ireland at the moment and will be until February 1st. I hadn't planned on posting. After all, how can I write about the house if I'm not in the house? But events have changed. It seems that after two and a half months, the mice are back. Numbers 41 and 42 were caught within the last two days.

Now I for one do not find it a coincidence at all that they have returned while I am away. I'd like to think that they saw me as Mr. Kluges the fearsome predator, destroyer of rodentia, assassin of vermin. (I am not a megalomaniac.)

Clearly they had decided that I was not one that could be driven away. They understood my resolve. Now they are testing my wife's. Little do they know that I'll be returning in just four short days. Run, run to your bolt holes, little rodents! Judgment is nigh! Ha!

I'd also just like to say that I REALLY miss my family.

We miss you, too!!!

Can I just say how much I'm enjoying the exploits of this new, lumberjack-pipe–developing, rodent-destroying aspect of Mr. Kluges?

Interesting idea for a novel - werecat by night, lumberjack by day, (with a Monty Python slant). Could sell millions.

Yeah, gotta go on record as saying I'm a fan of the "lumberjack-pipes" development. Keep splittin' that wood, hon! :)
