It was a dead goat. Now we knew what we had smelled at the first house we cleaned. Dead goats, dead snakes, a micro-waved roach, an eleven-year-old bootlegger, a bidet – -these were a few situations we, Linda Hammontree and Peggy Moss, encountered as we cleaned our way through the hallways and utility rooms of life. Our cleaning adventures began innocently enough. We wanted to fight boredom and earn extra spending money. We named our business Q. T. House Cleaners (quick and thorough), printed some business cards and fliers, and handed them out. We had no idea what calamities awaited us. We kept a journal so we could later convince ourselves that these events really happened. One of us is still in therapy for the shower caper. "Who Says Grime Doesn't Pay?" is based on the actual (although somewhat embellished at times) adventures of two zany ladies who have been friends for over forty years.
