    Fat Cat

    Trying to settle the question on how old our cat is... Huntr keeps saying that he remembers having a kitten in 2007. He makes a good argument and we certainly have had a number of strays around over the years, but I remembered having this particular kitten when teenage daughter was a toddler...

    Well, I guess it didn't work... he died.

    That only works if they are coming in along the ground. In my experience, they just walk up the wall until they are clear of it and find another way in.

    I discovered that if I use a poison, be it baking powder or chemical, that uses the idea of attracting them to kill them, I attract them faster then the poison is killing them. I end up with more ants then I started out with. I discovered by accident that liquid soap put in their path will...

    Who remembers these?

    I know.... but they've really been around forever. I'll never forget learning to make them in elementary school. We called them fortune tellers and thought we were so cool. I brought one home to show my parents, because I thought it was so innovative and my dad says, "Oh, we always called...

    Who remembers these?

    I saw some pre-made in the store the other day. :rolleyes: I taught my scouts to do them a couple of years ago as part of a history lesson in toys/games of the late 19th century.

    So what IS there in Mechanicsville?

    :yeahthat: :yeahthat: :yeahthat: I've never seen zip codes anywhere else like St. Mary's County. There are huge geographic areas within a given zip code with random little post offices that only have PO Boxes with no delivery, so that even the post office isn't in it's own zip code... or...

    Life in Mechanicsville?

    Mechanicsville is nice. Those who have issues with it have issues with rural life in general. No we don't have Target, mostly mom and pop stuff and fast food (one or two decent mid-range restaurants). But we are centrally located to everywhere else. There's a Target, Walmart and other stores...

    Wedding invitation

    I imagine you MIL has been bragging to her friends about her granddaughter getting married, so those invitations are likely just fine. When I got married, there was a pair of cousins of my grandparents who I'd never met, but had often heard about. Little old ladies in their 70's who we knew...
