What do you want dear blog people - would you rather hear a tip about bleach additives in cleaning products or... how we captured an intruder this morning.
Ah yes… as I suspected.
I was a little slow to wake this morning. My early-rising wife came bubbling in to get me with the digital camera in her hand.
"Get up, you need to come with me."
Handing me the camera, "You'll want this."
Ok, my interest was piqued.
She led me to the basement.
The terribly disorganized, discombobulated basement.
The future home of my workshop…now sitting piles all over the place.
The basement… the scene of the ‘accident’.
Where I had not ventured for the past week.
She had evidently gone to the basement this morning in need of some such stocked item down there and heard a scratching sound.
Welp… quite a long time ago we had set some traps which I diligently checked for weeks.
Slowly, over time, I checked them less and less. Tho still every other day or third day or so…
Now the forlorn basement has been abandoned for a week and guess what.
Yup, we caught ourselves a mouse.
However, my excitement was tempered by the fact that the little guy was in rough shape. He had clearly been in confinement for some time.
My original plan to drive the captured mice to my office and release them in the parking garage was dashed by the need to get this guy some air and freedom as quickly as possible.
I am such a softy.
I released him in the back of our detached garage. Other mice live in the garage, perhaps they already know each other. He will be happy there.
And yes, I know he will probably move right back into the house.
My fault tho.
Your tip for today:
Keep checkin’ the traps.
