While planning my retirement home, I threw a few quirky items in the mix, such as a porch just for my cat, a grocery door, etc, but most exciting of all, "a mouse in the house" hole. Today, the planning began, my builder describing to me what he was going to do to construct a rodent abode. I was amused listening to him as he detailed his plan; so exacting, you would think he was hanging a door! He told me he had done a lot of things in housing construction during his career, but a mouse hole was not one of them; this was entirely new. In his retirement years, he will remember me as that crazy woman who had him build a mouse hole in her new house! Somehow, I have a feeling I will have the best mouse hole money can buy!

My sister is thisclose to being a hoarder. Her screen name is Pacquerat and she collects rat pictures and figurines. Well, to be honest, she collects so many things it's difficult to keep track. But I digress... I think when I visit her this summer I may try to sneak one of these ideas into her house. What with all the stuff, I wonder how long it will take for her to notice it?
