Wouldn’t you know it?

After all our mice and rat (yes!! rats!!) problems last summer, wouldn’t you know that this year, beginning January 25th. is the Year of the Rat on the Chinese calendar.  I think I should have been anticipating that!  I was born in 1936 which was also the Year of the Rat.  Like all other members of the Chinese Zodiac, the rat comes around every twelve years.

Somewhere deep within me, I knew that,  But, I must keep it well repressed.  I certainly did not feel any affinity for the ones out in out storage area that died in the traps I set.  And I am keeping those traps current just in case.  I do not like rats in such close proximity.  No sirree!

Besides that, Nyel was born in the Year of the Sheep.  Rats and sheep, according to the Chinese zodiac, are not particularly compatible. As I see it, it’s too late now.  But, even so, don’t tell Nyel.

    I’m a Chinese rat child too. May we both live happy and well until the next cycle.
