Guano Bowls...Collect the Whole Set!

Sadly, we could probably make a whole set. This morning, we had a pest management company come out because we thought there were squirrels in the attic. Unfortunately, there are squirrels in the attic. And mice. And bats. About a dozen of them. Since my readers are classy people and probably don't spend their Saturday nights watching Billy the Exterminator like we do (I told you we knew how to party), I'll let him explain:

The good news is that at least some of the expense will be covered by our homeowner's insurance. Update:  There is no good news. I spoke to one of the claim reps who has already emailed me letter stating they will not be reimbursing us for the job.The (other) bad news is instead of using our tax return for a fence, we'll be replenishing our saving's account. Removal of the bats alone is going to cost around $2,000, plus the costs for trapping & removing the squirrels/mice. I feel like I'm starring in my own rendition of The Money Pit.

  1. Ugh, I'm sorry Kathy. :-(

    But any time Molly wants to come up here and hang out with Elvis, she can! We will hopefully be getting our fence put in soon.
