Cottage Survival Guide: The Misc Hardware Jar
Originally uploaded by Ann Douglas

If your cottage doesn't come with a jar like this, there's something wrong with the cottage. The previous owner obviously didn't do any repairs. Beware.



Our cottage came with all kinds of other goodies, including mousetraps galore. That was our first hint that the cottage was actually owned by mice and that we were only subletting from the rodent landlords. Once we made peace with that realization (we are paying the mortgage, but the rodents own the place), seeing the occasional mouse skitter by stopped being cause for shrieking. (And this has been a most shriek-worthy season, as anyone with a cottage in Ontario can tell you.)
