Monday night, Dad had to go to Washington DC for a dinner. It was a two hour drive each way. He didn't get home until after midnight. Mom and I went for a walk and our neighbors stopped us. They told us that they saw a RAT walk on our sewer line and it climbed into our compartment that has the sewer connection. YIKES! The neighbor asked Mom if she wanted him to see if he was still there and she said yes. He opened the compartment and looked inside, but didn't see him. We checked it out and didn't see a way for him to get inside our RV, but they are good at squeezing into small areas.
|Here I am waiting and watching for Dad to come home.|
Mom asked Dad if the rat could get inside. He said it wouldn't be easy, but yes, he could. She couldn't sleep Monday night. She was scared to turn the lights off thinking that the rat would appear and crawl all over her while she was sleeping. Tuesday morning, Dad said he didn't say that about the rat. We don't know what to believe now. We think we saw the rat under the RV Tuesday evening, but we are not sure. Mom got down on her knees and didn't see him. Then she had trouble getting back up. It's a good thing he wasn't there because she would have fallen on her butt. BOL!
Mom is no longer sad about leaving thanks to the rat. She and Dad actually starting putting our outdoor things away last night because it is supposed to rain the rest of the week. We just have to hope the rat has not chewed on any wires. That could be bad.
Remember our big mushroom?
|It was so pretty last week.|
|This is how it looks today.|
