oh joy, TUESDAY!

Here is a short haiku for Chip and Dale, currently setting up home in the wall of my bedroom:

Asleep all day long.
Then, mischief! Party on Chip!
Party on Dale! Schwing!

Gary cannot sleep,
Spike cat gonna shred your azz,
No tears for chipmunks!



(bowls by Gary Rith) I am sorta fiddling around with the shape of these bowls on the right-whacking them on the top half. I tried it with a vase yesterday, looks super good.

I love the haikus. That's the only kind of poetry I can really wrap my head around.

I remember when we had chipmunks in the house we lived in around Freeville. I bang on the wall as a kid so I could go to sleep!!

Hmm. My suggestion..have a friend with a ferret? A bit macabre but effective. Or even more fun.. could release a little rat/king or milksnake into the wall. That'll cure the problem..albeit a bit slowly. Snake will eat one of the little buggers..go to sleep for a week..etc etc. And of course then there's the slight difficulty of retrieving said snake once the mission has been completed. So upon further reflection,definitely the ferret. Good luck.

Someone told me that if you scatter mothballs in the attic, the creatures will vacate. Anyone know if this works?
