Finally Dead!

November 14th, 2014 at 03:45 pm

Yup, the rat is finally dead! The dogs and even our kitty in the back have been stalking and barking at the bushes in the side yard for a long time. No tomatoes at all for the season -- always mysteriously disappearing. Only the jalapenos were not taken.

Well......we tented our house last weekend for termites (they returned RELUCTANTLY before our warranty was up, so re-tenting was free) and his body was found -- with his last meal of berries next to him. Yay!

DD and I (and the 2 dogs and the 2 cats) went to visit my mom about 2 hours away for the weekend. DH stayed behind and slept in our trailer parked in front of the house. Too many stories of break-ins at tented homes.

It was nice to visit with my mom. She cooked for us and my brother (who lives nearby). I do not think I cook that much in a month! Anyway, we went to church on Sat pm at her parish and the priest had a seeing eye dog! I thought it was the neatest thing! My brother said the priest was retired and helping out at this parish. Also, he could only see on the edges of his vision. The dog has been with him a long time. Dog sat on the altar next to the priests's chair on a mat. He "knew" exactly when the service was over! Also, we sat in the front right section of the church. There was an older man in the front left that had an uncanny resemblance to my deceased father! He even had a cane and walked the same way. It was a nice thing to happen. Although it could just be that all older men start to look like each other! Smile
