Makes ya wanna think.

Chasing Herman the Ermine

I saw Herman last night in a late-night high-speed chase around The Pad with Travis and Mika in hot pursuit.

Herman was checking out the kitchen, hunting for a late-night snack. Mika heard him first and leapt off my bed and skittered around on the kitchen linoleum, cornering Herman behind a cupboard.

I got out of bed, threw on a robe, and ran to catch the action.

Travis bounced around the whole cabin and then joined Mika yipping and scratching around the cupboard. Herman gave a fierce, squeaky yelp and zipped back into the living room and then Margaret’s closet. That’s when I saw him – a white streak way faster than even the dogs’ eys could follow.

Mika and Travis thought they still had him cornered in the kitchen.

Margaret slept through the whole shenanigans.

  2. Still a sicky, but of the cold variety. Her heartbeat has been steady.
