I had mice getting into my cabinets and couldn't find the entry spot. I placed one of those electronic vermin deterrents on the ground beneath the center of the coach and they aren't bothering us now.

I did have to screw it to a board so it's too heavy for Sena to carry off. I added a short piece of rope to the board for retrieval purposes. Now I just stand on the end of the rope and sorta toss/slide the board under the coach.

Lily could hear the mice at night and would wake us up trying to get them. Terriers were bred to catch vermin and she knows to get them instinctually. Her other annoying 4 am habit is to poop (on the puppy pad) then wake me up so I can smell it and go pick it up. How do I change that habit?

Our pup Ranger wouldn't dream of doing that. He just jumps around the bed at 4 am and wakes up the other dogs so that we HAVE TO let him out. Then after he is done all he wants to do is play for an hour or so. Just about the time I have to get up, he is ready to go back to sleep. I know he'll out grow it, but has been every night for the last 8 weeks.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Ohms, salutations, and Oh Yeah, where appropriate, you STMs!

I have been following as much as I can, but not easy to digest. Much family stuff and too many close friends to catch up with (ugh).

Di, hi to your dear Mum in the fence. And best ohms, K?

Steve and Annie, sweet that you would share a disease, but nuff already. Be well, aye?

Dwayne, nice ride. Got thunder? Shara, my lumbar has empathy for your lumbar. Best wishes, sweet girl!!!

We have found cultural cuisine stuff lately. It started with Nissa (winginnis) in AZ.

Yes, we went to the olive oil, balsamic, seasalt store again here.

Tonight: Pork roast, marinated with tangerine balsamic vinegar, chipotle olive oil, and garlic.
Also a salad of tomato and motzarella slices topped with fresh basil, garnished with lavender balsamic.
And a diet Coke.
You?

OH YEAH!!! (But minus that Diet Coke ... I'll have the blackcurrant cordial, please.) Om-Nom! I wanna eat wit' youse guys more often!

Although, I will say our supper, prepared by Martin, was pretty tasty too. Crab cakes and tossed salad for me, plus boiled little potatoes for himself. Ice cream followed, homemade vanilla for me. As M. would say: a simple repast.

No pics. Ate the evidence.

Cheers!
Sue
PS: I knew a PA woman once, Italian-Polish, who pronounced that cheese y'all had as "mootzarella". I still do, for grins.

White Castle is an American regional fast food hamburger restaurant chain located in the Midwestern and Southern United States as well as in the New York metropolitan area, generally credited as the first fast food chain in the US. It is known for its small, square hamburgers. Sometimes referred to as "sliders", the burgers were priced at five cents until the 1940s, and remained at ten cents for years thereafter. For several years, when the original burgers sold for five cents, White Castle periodically ran promotional ads in local newspapers which contained coupons offering five burgers for ten cents, takeout only.


I never knew they were called sliders.......

Diane is the original SFM........... ( Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

Harold Schlumberg is such a person. Mr. Schlumberg says, "I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're retired?' Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whiskey into urine. I do it everyday!"
WHAT?????? I have to RETIRE to do that??????? OK! I'll just keep practicing for retirement then.
