Haiku Sticky #291

Does anyone under the age of 50 still remember mothballs (camphor)? I do. Some older friends do, too.

We actually use them at the bottom of the Library's outdoor bookdrop to discourage mice from coming in, but it wasn't easy to find mothballs for sale! (In the past we have had mice get in and do some intense book chewing during the overnight hours!)

This has been a week for wet wool, fleece, synthetics, or anything you wear in the snow!

  1. I remember moth balls and their strong smell when you pulled out your winter sweaters. Old friends, indeed.
