Don't you use them to make Mole Wrenches ?
BTW - Having _tried_ the experiment, I can confirm that genuine
moleskin from moles is no use at all for soldering lead pipe with a
wiped joint. I'm not doing that again....

What is that? Don't think we have those here in AZ -- just
rattlesnakes, of which my wife found one this morning -- a baby one, in
the bathroom, by the bathtub, after stepping out of the shower. That is
such a not good thing in so many different ways it is beyond expression.
Our dog found one in our house in South Dakota. "Bark! Bark! Bark!"
"Shuddup Major!" "Bark! Bark! Bark!" "Be quiet!" "Bark! Bark! Bark!"
"I'm coming downstairs. Oooo... Good Dog!" Smash, smash, smash.
If you don't have an inside dog maybe you could "borrow" one to sniff around
the house and make sure there aren't any more.

It was -2 degrees F. here in New Hamster this morning. I was going
to squawk about that, but it beats the hell out of rattlesnakes in the
bathroom. My condolences to your wife - can I interest you in a pet
Oh, we've found plenty of scorpions, though none in shoes yet -- but
we do check-- and we do exterminate regularly. That was one of our
trade-offs moving to AZ, take the chance with the chemicals because all
the biting, stinging poisonous critters are more dangerous. We find
several scorpions, most all of them dead every year.
Don't know why the cat didn't find the snake; probably a good thing,
it most likely would have killed her.
Yeah, wonderful place here, what doesn't bite, poke or stick you,
poisons and kills you.

Scorpions in shoes and rattlesnakes in bathtubs! No thanks! I'm glad
the worst I have to deal with is grizzlies. And the only time they
ever came anywhere near my house is when they put an electric fence
around the dump and the poor critters lost their feeding grounds. Felt
like a war zone with all them Conservation Officers in helicopters
trying to find and shoot them full of tranquilizers so they could be
relocated. A garage a few blocks away got broken in and parts of the
moose hanging in there got chewed on.
Ah I almost forgot when a young mother a couple of blocks away beat
off a coyote with a snow shovel. The coyote was getting a little too
close to her kid for her comfort. That one made the National Enquirer,
much to the mother's disgust.
