    DefaultThe 77 pound mouse

    Friday night Wife saw a mouse in the house. When The Crown is not amused, there is gloom and a definite chill in the air. So Saturday I bought mouse traps. As I opened the cellophane package Buddy's nose and tail were working, and his ears were perked. I snapped the trap and other than a stray brown hair floating in the air, Buddy was gone. Looked in the living room, and there peeking out over the far arm of the couch are two very large eyes, ears back. I put a glob of peanut butter on the trigger of the trap, walked into the living room and sat it down on the floor. "Not yours! Leave it", and turned and walked back to the kitchen.

    No sooner than get to the kitchen I hear a sharp snap! Buddy appears at my side, sliding into a sit with a most dejected look on his face. "Told ya".
    Got out another trap. Looked down at where Buddy had been a second before and saw only some stray brown fur floating in the air. Looked in the living room. No Buddy. Oh. Just visible above the coffee table between the books is a brown head with big eyes, body out of sight lying behind the coffee table. When he saw me he ducked.

    When I came home from work today, none of the mouse traps were where I had left them. They were in the middle of my bed, licked clean of peanut butter.
    Wife wants results. I can truthfully tell her we caught a large, brown critter.

    Buddy wants a cat--not a trap! Buddy needs a new buddy.

    I have one of those too! My parents were having a rodent problem under their back deck. Oakley decided to check out the trap, the peanut butter was too tempting. SNAP! Dad heard the snap from in the house. It didn't get her but it scared her.

    He got the p/b from the trap without getting snapped?? Advance to the head of the class, Bud!

    Try using those plug in pest repellents. I have one in every room and can't remember seeing a mouse or signs of mice. Buddy will then have to learn to open the fridge to get peanut butter.

    I love this visual so much! Buddy was probably proud . . . "Someone left all of these nummy things around the house! I cleaned them up for you."

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
