Hey Y'all, I want to welcome you to my blog. Pull up a seat and grad a drink. But, first let me warn you in case you didn't see the warning about my blog on the home page, drinking while reading this blog may cause liquid to be expressed through the nose and from the mouth. Read and drink at your own risk, the risk of your computer, and any items that may become wet. Life is hard and laughter is guaranteed.

I am a retired teacher and counselor. Trust me, I know about adolescence hormones and have developed a ritual to help survive them. But, first let me explain the name of Ms. Rat. It is the name given to me by my students. My maiden name is Ratledge and my daddy was also known as Rat. He was a police officer for the Atlanta Public Schools when I began teaching and worked at the same school with me. So, my students called me Ms. Rat. This has stuck with me over the years. The illustration of Ms. Rat is something I drew several years past and am glad that she has found a purpose.

So, when you find yourself in need of a chuckle, gauff, or snort of humor to help lighten your day. Please drop by and let me entertain you.
