Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Just another day.....

We knew there was a mouse in our home when the cats started hanging out at the stove, intently staring at the gap between it and the counter. The stinking animals are good for something after all!

After the War Department (WD) actually spied the little sucker I got some glue traps. Set them out and figured the mouse would get caught at the worst possible time (Murphy's Law, it never fails).

Today while I'm sleeping the WD hears a commotion in the kitchen. Sure enough, "Mickey" is caught (good news). Our male cat pounced on him AND the trap and is trying to shake it loose from his face (bad news).

The WD runs over, rips the trap along with fur and whiskers off the cat's face, grabs him and runs back to our bedroom to get him out of the way. He gets dumped on the floor and the door shuts. Not being TOO stupid our feline friend jumps onto the bed and starts headbutting yours truly to get me to let him out. Since I have no idea of just WTH is going on as I awake I get up and let "Bootsie" out the door in time for him to beat the WD back to the kitchen.

While cat and wife are racing each other back to the glue trapped mouse our two boys, aged 4 and 2.5, are standing there rooting for the cat AND the mouse (not realizing one wants the other for dinner). The WD succeeds in grabbing "Bootsie" again and tosses him firmly into another bedroom. Maybe that was the thump I heard against the wall as I fell back asleep.

Running back in time to prevent our boys from petting the mouse, the WD gets my pliers and grabs the trap to toss it into the garbage can outside. Our sons wave bye-bye as "Mickey" exits the house.

So, how was your day?

Not nearly so exiting! But I got a nice hug from the Queen of the House!

Well our mouse story this week wasn't nearly as exciting as yours!! Ours too was captured alive (unfortunately!) and it wasn't stuck down. It was caught by the back leg in the it spent I don't know how long trying to drag itself back under the dishwasher and make a lovely little mess of mmmmm... nasty stuff on the floor. The dang thing kept getting up onto the counter every night and pooping all over and evading the traps! we moved a trap in front of the dw and caught it right away. but Little Miss heard me wake up Daddy to come get rid of the squeaking bundle of nastiness and jumped out of bed to see it. Of course she followed him to bathroom and watched the mouse do the 'swirly' in the toilet. oh my...I spent the next hour explaining the nastiness of mice in the house....
