Here’s a friend of mine. He makes sure I get up in the morning! Especially at this time of the year. Early Spring. You see, he marks his territory now. He does this by tapping out loudly on various things, to say, this is mine. Well, the one particular place is the metal cap on our chimney! Rat-a-tat, Rat-a-tat!! Seven a.m.! When he starts to tap, there’s no sleeping. My friend!
