Happy Year of the Rat (as of Yesterday)!

Chinese New Year is often filled with animal imagery, which is an understatement. This year, it's one of my favorite animals, the rat. Rats bring joy into everyone's lives, especially people who deal with grain. They LOVE 'em.

Personally, I've known lots of rats. And they're not all the same. Some are finicky, some are picky, and some still are snooty.

I am, of course, making fun of rats. They're mostly harmless. And some are among the most treasured creatures on earth: our friends. Hug a rat today for me.

Little bookworm, this one was. I miss her.
