--eewww. But, yes, I do live in what we here refer to as "the sticks" and yes, there are banjo's and people with few teeth and people who haven't evolved very much. We have a big ole garden, ducks, coonhounds, rabbits, etc. A mini-farm if you will--it's TN. But, I won't knock where I live or the people who reside here--bless their hearts, they just can't help themselves, haha.
Anyway, no, the car hasn't been sitting in my yard for 10 yrs. It's been sitting in a driveway, in an older suburb, under a car cover at my granmother's house. But, it was parked next to a little patch of trees--go figure.
Cats in the car---hmmm, my cat would completely shred the inside of the car--I'll have to borrow some cats. I wonder if I can rent cats?
Well, if I put the car in the garage, open the doors and then the snakes leave to go after the rodents, I don't need the cat. Because, the snakes will go after the rodents and then the coonhounds will smell the snakes AND the rodents (like a cherry on top of a sundae) and the coonhounds will be even more eager to hunt them (ie, the snakes and the rodents) down. So, once again, two problems solved. However, I really don't want the snakes to die--just want them out. So, now I'm back to my original conundrum
Maybe cats are the solution...
Or a pack of mongeese (I think the plural is mongooses, but what's the fun in that!). But, who has the time to travel to Africa and bring a flock/herd/murder of mongeese back to the USA...<sigh>
