I'd say I have done pretty well dealing with the gigantic roaches and lizards. I think I am winning the battle with the misquitoes...I'd even give myself a pat on the back for checking all corners of my house only once every night after finding a snake in the backyard. But I have new visitors now, and quite frankly I am not too fond of them. RATS! After doing my nightly checks for the boogieman, I found these little friends welcoming theirselves in.

If we fed His people or not. So let us start now... Me and you together. Do not have contractors install better windows so you can tune out all the noise.
