Dear Readers;

Last week I had a mid-life crisis and created a contest called The Rat's Nest Contest, but as you know, there can be no contest without contestants, and so far, the Rat's Nest Contest has zero. Despite the low turnout (!) the challenge to look for the korner/ed rat and win a one-of-a-kind Rat's Nest T-shirt continues. Deadline is October 31st (midnight!)

To summarize: I drew a rat somewhere in Mt. Washington:

 korner/ed rat

Here is the area where the rat lives:

And here are the updated rules:

The first ten people to find the rat will receive a-one-of-a-kind Rat’s Nest T-shirt, looking something like this: 


Here are some photos of friends I dragged into the canyon to see the rat.

And one clever pic from my friend Melissa who wins a T-shirt in xxxxxxxxxxsmall:

So, dear readers, I hope I have wet your whistle to join in the fun. For further details of The Rat's Nest Contest go to:

Sincerely yours,

The Rat's Nest


  1. Rats! So only by the most current of Google street maps, or stealth break in to recent work of CIA or satellite camera spying might I participate... hmmm... Mt. Washington ... Heidelberg and the Santa Monica Mountains...ponder, and here I sit coveting a T-shirt...might a purchase be made?

    1. Hmmmm, very tempting, a thought of a sale! Let me get back to you on that one. First I have to make them and then I will know what I'm up against. More to come....
