Hmmm.... maybe if you did the above to the neighbor....

But seriously... that is a terrible story. The poor cat.

I wanted to shoot the bastard. I had this old 12 gauge shotgun, that I had in my room. Man I was so tempted!!!

But my vindictive attitude also leans towards the human variety as well!!

I can write about every incident about what I love to do, towards abusive boyfriends & husbands toward women?

You don't want me to go there!!!
And write about that?

No KnottyBoyz.

I didn't drag him (neighbor) out. But I sure as hell wanted too!!!

I instead got my revenge by destroying his precious manicured yard. I completely destroyed his yard. And for many months he couldn't figure out how did that happen.

Oh. I meant earlier that I used a sheet to drag my cat out on, to the backyard!!

A good way to keep wasps and other critters out of the boat over the winter (and out of the boom in the spring) is mothballs. Either the real kind (camphor) or the new kind (naphthalene) will do. "Mothballing" a ship isn't just a saying, the USN used to use huge blocks of the stuff. The vapors disperse (actually the solid sublimates) to form a thin coating over everything which prevents rust and drives away critters.
One small caveat--you MUST ventilate for a few minutes before going back aboard, the vapors aren't good for you. And of course, you need to tolerate the smell of mothballs for a while.<G>
But they are cheap, clean, and effective.

Nothing downs a wasp in mid-air like a shot from a can of starting ether.

Or a can of hairspray with a lighter in front of the stream. Making it a blow torch!!

But inside a boat. I never would do that!!

K, I think we need to re-evaluate getting you into a steel boat.
