One of the interesting things about working freelance is that you get used to the rhythms of your neighborhood.The same cars that park in the same place, when the neighbors do the sweep the porch and that kind of thing. Yesterday, I noticed a summons on the gate in front of the empty lot next door. That empty lot has caused nothing but trouble. I have blamed the rat infestation on the lot and the owner does not show any interest in cleaning it. I hope whomever owns the property, gets arrested.
But getting back to the rats. I have put traps outside and they are working.
