Monday, March 7th

We woke to the realization that we might have won the battle, but the war wasn’t over.

The enemy had somehow overcome our secret weapon, INSECTICIDE.  Now it was time to call in our ally…..SPRAY FOAM INSULATION! 

Craig retrieved the aerosol cannon and confidently marched into the kitchen.  With weapon drawn, he took aim and fired away…..plugging one hole after another…..merciless in his pursuit of the enemy. 

Mission accomplished…..Craig cleaned his weapon and returned it to its safe harbor in the garage….confident that this time…..this time…..his adversaries were finally defeated.

But nay, at the end of the day, he was sorely disappointed to see that one of their soldiers had broken through our defenses and was, no doubt, paving the way for others. 

Craig surveyed his domain…..all ceiling holes were still secured, so how did this lone spy find his way here?  Ah-ha!  A tiny crack where the ceiling meets the wall.  Hmmm….. INSECTICIDE has failed, SPRAY FOAM is too unwieldly…..what to use, what to use?  Ah yes, time to bring in the Special Forces…..CAULKING! 

With the ceiling sealed and the wall caulked, victory was surely ours.  We opened a bottle of wine and toasted to our success.

In war, there is no substitute for victory…..General Douglas MacArthur
