… so UD has called Adcock’s Trapping (its url sounds kinky: adcockstrapping.com).

Beasts are in the walls and they’re in the attic and they make a huge racket at night. Scritch scratch, raceabout raceabout. Are they squirrels, raccoons, rats? Groundhogs, opossums, bats? Could be foxes, I suppose.

Tomorrow a guy in a white truck with cages in the back shows up around noon to do something about this. While Les UDs work their way through papers and final exams, he will head up the little foldaway ladder to the attic and then come down and tell us the worst.


UPDATE: Nothing more exciting than mice.

    Margaret, I feel your pain. Rats in the attic are no fun.

    Consider also the websites for

    Pen Island (they sell pens) and Boaters Exchange (they help you sell your boat).

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Pete: LOL.

    There is a nice collection of unfortunate website names here:
    A mouse or two can make an awful lot of noise that makes you think there’s an army of varmints in the attic.

    That’s exactly what the pest control guy told us. They sound like herds of elephants to me.
