Rodent Ready

      Another find!: Twitter.com, November 25, 2019, Brian Roemmele@BrianRoemmele - In Brian's tweet, I read the margin line on notebook paper was originally put there to give rodents (a problem back when) a place to gnaw.  If the author kept his or her cursive within the center of the paper, leaving this wide margin, the hope was the rats would stay on their side of the line and not chew into the handwritten material. Thank you, Brian.  These are the things that happily clog my mind!  -jmm

P.S. Photo curtsey of Bob Harkins, proud owner of the pictured rodents from A Bag of Rats given to him by his niece, Ava. Thank you, Bob and Ava.  I can't present such wonderment to the world without you! 🤗🤗🤗
