Life Comes at You Fast

Flying Chicken

Yesterday, we picked up the rent-a-car and today, we took the RAV4 into Toyota for the great repair. This should take just a few days. So, that by Friday, we should be able to put this whole squirrel situation behind us. Except, the squirrel is still out there, somewhere. Squirrels live an average of two to six years, meaning that this pest could very well strike again. I bought a pellet gun, but now I am reluctant to use it. I am as likely to hit something that I should not, then to get the squirrel. Plus, these days do I really want my neighbors seeing me walking around carrying a gun? I have peppermint oil, both in spray form and in little ventilated tins. I have been using both to treat the car’s engine compartment. I also have mothballs, but the peppermint is much less offensive, at least to my nose. And I also have a rat trap, but baiting this trap to lure the rodent in, seems contradictory to my whole squirrel repellent strategy.

File this next item under keeping up with the Jones. The couch that we ordered a couple of months ago will be delivered this Saturday. On Thursday, the delivery countdown kicks into high gear when we will be given a four-hour delivery window. Then on Friday, that window will be narrowed to two-hours. Finally, on Saturday we will have an app that will allow us to track in real-time the delivery. Before it arrives, we will move our old blue couch out of the way and then clean underneath it. Next week, we will gift Joanie the blue couch.
