Occupational Hazards

Salvage Chick was out on site at a Clean-Out with Sanford & Son today and especially jumpy because Son mentioned he had seen a RAT, granted a Muskrat, but still of the Rodent Persuasion. The preferred method of Cleaning Out is to offer a price for the contents sight unseen and then haul them away, with a promise to return any personal items such as photographs or letters of sentimental value... always a Gamble but usually a Pay Off in the end. This particular Cellar Owner did not want to go that route but she was a Really Nice Lady and Hey You Never Know What's In There so the morning was spent assisting her foraging through boxes for items she might want to keep. Imagine Salvage Chick's reaction when she reached into a box and pulled out a nice pair of... OLD DENTURES!! Ewwwwwwwwww...

The highlight of the day was finding an old coil of rope that did look exceptionally Rat-Tailish and casually tossing it Son's way with the comment "Here's that Rat you were talking about".
