It's Like the Car Wash

I have heard many of my friends over the years talk about what they did on the weekend while in High School. For most, it involved going to the mall, movies, etc. For all of those of you who didn't grow up in a small town, let me tell you that there were no malls or movies to go to. Instead, we would all "make the drag" on Friday and Saturday nights. This involved piling into cars and driving the 2 mile stretch of town a couple of times, then pulling into the car wash parking lot and sitting for a while. People would stop and everyone would talk, etc., then it was off to make the drag some more before stopping at the Boot Company parking lot and repeating the car wash parking lot events. These exciting events would be repeated until everyone's curfew. Exciting! I know you are jealous!

Well the reason I mention this trip down memory lane is that it seems I have the equivalent to the drag and car wash parking lot out on my back fence....for rats! Multiple rats just hang out back there. I see them run back and forth and then they just stop and hang out until Lola disturbs their peace. I honestly have no idea what draws them to my back fence. It really is a mystery, but then I'm not sure what was the drawing force to the car wash parking lot back in Nocona, so who am I to judge.

I think that maybe the like the thrill of the chase! You know...teasing Lola and waiting for her to try and run them down. Then they gather and chat about their next move. But then again what do I know, I never had to do the drag...and I lived in a semi-small town.
