Intruder in the House: Be Vewy Vewy Quiet . . .

When Elmer Fudd was hunting Bugs Bunny, he cautioned us to be vewy vewy quiet. This advice also applies if you have an intruder in the house.

I was on the phone with my barber last night, when my wife came in to say, "Good night." The door hinges squeaked, as they always have as she came in and went out.

My barber pointed out that if an uninvited guest entered the house, those hinges would give away my exact location. The intruder would know my location, but I might not know his -- not good!

I got off the phone and sprayed WD40 on the hinges, and now they're quiet.

How about your house? Any noisy tattletales that could put you at a tactical disadvantage? If you have fixed any, I'm sure other readers would like to hear about the problem and how you solved it.

Good idea, I think of this from time to time. Glad to know I'm not the only one! I keep my doors open to better facilitate defense in such a manner.
