And I do mean TAIL! This post is a follow-up to the “This is How You Do It” post on removing prints from an album.
I was working on removing a couple of more desirable prints from my book. Everything was going swimmingly; got them out with a minimum of trouble. Just one little hitch–I didn’t have a piece of glass big enough for the Hawaiian Maiden in the Moonlight print. Not a problem, I will just rotate the print frequently, so it dries flat.
It was working fine, but here is what I found this morning:
The explanation of what happened hit me like a poke in the eye; I had a helper, and her name is Shyla:
In the other post, I blabbered on about animal glue; well evidently, it’s pretty tasty, as well as being water-soluble. I think Shyla nibbled the end of the picture sticking out of the t00-short-glass; it probably smelled like gluey food; either that or we have mice with pretty big teeth
It’s obvious, I either have to pick things up off the floor, or keep the door shut–who would have thunk it? Luckily, there were two of these prints, so Kathy can still have a good one. Mine will have a story associated with it; hopefully I can smile about it in a while, even a rueful smile would be OK. Meanwhile, I’m adding animal glue to the long list of things Shyla can’t resist–tags on pillows, mattresses, footstools; any kind of netting; carved wooden figures, she is eclectic in her tastes.
