Aw, CG, I'm sorry. It sucks losing a favorite tool. Makes you feel kind of lost in the kitchen.

PF, sorry about your kitchen woes, too. Mice! With cats in the house! One of ours is pretty lazy, but the other is a good hunter. Got one of those dastardly squirrels last year. Mice I don't think we'd have to worry about.

I think I'll call again during the week.
Hate State Farm. Every house around me, and I mean all around every house, had roof replaced. We are on a small lot. Me, not so fast. I got only half of the roof due to heil damage.

The mice are in the cupboards where the cats can't get to, the cats also are not allowed on the counters...

The upper cupboards? Hmmm. Sounds like you need to find out how they're getting in. There may be a teeny hole under the eaves or something like that. I understand mice can squeeze through some pretty small spaces.

The cupboard in question is on the wall where the plumbing comes into the house, I don't keep any food in the bottom cupboards. Have not found any carcasses, so they are not out in the living area, Django would have got them. He is great for hunting flies.

Gotcha. Our house is on a crawl space about four feet above ground and the furnace and water heater are in a small closet in a corner of the kitchen. There's an opening under the floor in there so that, in case the water heater leaks, the water will drain out into the crawl space and not into the kitchen. I don't know what it looks like - never been in there, or that far under the house

We've gotten insects in there occasionally, but I guess the opening isn't big enough for rodents to get in.

Hope you get your mouse prob under control soon, Princess. I haven't had any mice in my house, but a couple of years ago my kitty left me a present on the patio , a rat about half his size! Ewwww. I didn't know we had rodents that large lurking about at night here.

So sorry to hear about your frying pan, CG.

Odd, Charlie...I've had State Farm for car and homeowners for over 30 years now and have been very happy with them so far.

My petty vent...I bought a pound of Farmer John bacon the other day and it looked good through the 'window', but when I opened it up to cook it, the rest of the bacon was thick and fatty (and not the good kind of bacony fat that crisps up nicely - it was more like gristle). It was inedible and I had to throw it out. I think I'll email the company - if I can get a coupon, I'll be content with that. Bacon is expensive.

Oh yuck, Cheryl. Gristle is my least favorite flavor.

Sure hope you get some compensation!

Thanks, Dawg... if I even get a response I'd be surprised - deceitful packaging is so annoying....
