One mousy mousy, two mousy mousy . . .


Another One Bites the Dust.

Well, when I got up this morning I found another toes-up mousy residing in one of my traps. The two traps in the slide-out pantry area were still baited and set, but the two in the area behind the cabinets had been hit.

One trap had been stripped of peanut butter, but was still set. The other one had also been emptied, but was now occupied. So I rebaited them both and put them back in place. We’ll see how tomorrow goes.

About 10:30 one of the park hosts showed up with the part for Nick and Terry’s dryer. Should only take about about 15 minutes to install the part, but probably another hour to get it checked out, buttoned up, and back in the cabinet. We’ll finish it up tomorrow.

It did get down to about 30 degrees here last night, but no problems came with it. It’s supposed to be in the high 30’s tonight, and then start gradually warming up through the rest of the week. Looks like it should be pretty nice with no rain before we leave on Sunday.

Hope so.

Later in the afternoon, I pulled everything out from under the sink and installed the new water filter that I bought in Yuma. The water flow is much better now, thought it doesn’t seem to taste any better or worse.

Jan had been under the weather the last couple of days with one of her migraine clusters. They normally run for about 3 days, and she discovered this morning that she was out of her Sumatriptan migraine medicine, so, about 4:30, and feeling better, Jan and I headed out to pick up the prescription I had called into a Wal-Mart Pharmacy earlier.

On the way, we first stopped off for dinner at Poco & Mom’s with some Hatch Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas for me and Ground Beef Nachos for Jan. And as usual we had plenty of leftovers for later lunches.  Hmmm Good!

After dinner, and picking up Jan’s prescription, we headed home with a quick stop at DQ for dessert, and tired of his sniveling about the lack of DQ visits, a chocolate milkshake for Nick.

The things I do.


Thought for the Day:

Keep an open mind all the time and someone might fill it full of something for you

  1. I think it is about time you had a heart-to-heart talk with Mister. He is slacking off.

    I have found that if I put peanut butter UNDER the small plastic part that I have better luck catching mice. They are often able to help themselves without committing mousiside when it is easy for them to reach the food.

  2. George,

    Mister would certainly go after one if it came out, but we’ve seen no sign of them outside the cabinets, so I don’t think they’re coming out.

  3. And then I spilled the damn milkshake all over the counter and floor!

  4. Nick,

    I just deliver the milkshakes.

    I don’t clean them up.
