What's the difference between an Opossum and a Possum?

Don't just tell me it's the "O"!

No Bill, I did not piss my pants!

The wife had electrical panels off of the wall in the kitchen one day while she was doing some painting..............I noticed water dripping down behind a switch box........I did all the usual checks on the upstairs bathrooms........then finally called in a plumber as I did not know what else to do...............we decided to start cutting into the ceiling to find the leak........on the third cut we found the leak.................my house has plastic water hoses throughout........a bloody rat had chewed through the pipe causing the leak! Plumber said he sees it all the time with plastic piping.

Long story short........the roofers plugged the hole they left in the soffits and payed for all the plumber/gyp-rock repairs!

The war on rats continues............so far........21 rats, 3 mice, 2 birds and one squirrel caught in my traps!

Cheers

The war here in the mountains of north Georgia is with flying squirrels. Has cost me quite a bit to fill the cracks they've caused to come party in the house at night (they're nocturnal). Tally so far is 7 in the exterminators outdoor trap and 2 in my attic trap. Didn't take a pic though....squished heads are not mental images I cherish.
