It’s a Two’fer . . .

But wait, there’s more.

When I got up this morning I found two more mousies in my traps. Didn’t realized I was hosting a whole village in here.

Then a little later I was back in the bedroom and heard Jan scream. Running out, I found her pointing at the bottom drawer of the cabinet under the stove and yelling “Mouse, Mouse”. If there had been a chair nearby, she would have jumped on it.

So it turns out we have at least 5 visitors.

A little after 1pm I went over to Nick and Terry’s rig to install the new part in Terry’s washer. As I figured, it only took about 15 minutes to get the new part installed and checked out, but another hour to get it all put back together and finished up.

The last thing was to go outside and pull the dryer vent hose out through the sidewall of the rig and lock it down.

Getting back to the rig, I took up all the traps and rebaited them, with cheese this time. But while I had the entrance to the access area still open, I heard a noise inside the cabinet, and looking in, I saw Mister back in there checking things out. I was kind of hoping he’d find something, but no luck this time.

Mister Mouse Hunting

Finally getting Mister to come out, I put the traps back out, with one of them in the drawer this time.

About 5:45pm Nick, Terry, Jan, and I, along with Tom and Barb Westerfield, drove up Houghton Rd to eat again at Luckie’s Thai, our favorite local Chinese place, and one of our all-time favorites anywhere.

And Tom and Barb actually had Thai. But the rest of us ate from the Chinese side of the menu. And if anything, it was better tonight than last time. And of course we had plenty of leftovers, so lunch tomorrow will be great too.

Getting home around 7pm, I checked my trapline and found I’d bagged another one.

Don’t know if it’s the same one Jan saw this afternoon, but that’s a total of five now.

I think I need to throw Mister back in there again. Make him earn his keep.

  1. If you get enough of them, maybe you could make a pair of gloves.

  2. If you can put moth bowls in an old sock and place them in places that you have, hoses or cords coming into the motor home it should help keep your small visitors out. They can crawl up anything including tires. Stop up holes.

  3. Nick,

    Well, I guess if you can have moleskin gloves, you could have mouseskin gloves.

  4. Carol,

    If this keeps up, I may give the moth balls a try.
