I did something unusual tonight. Unusual for me, anyway. Others' mileage may vary.

I searched for mouse poop. With my hands.

Let me say that again.

I. Searched. For. Mouse. Poop. With. My. Hands.

Why did I do such a thing?

Thanks for asking.

Because I'm a good guy, that's why. Oh, and also because it was too dark to see and somebody doesn't have a flashlight.

Anyway, I found no mouse poop, or any other incriminating evidence. This was a good thing, I think.

I got to be a good guy without the hassle of getting mouse poop on my hands.

Ewww...I had mice about a month ago. A few trays of mouse poison cleared that right up, and I didn't even wind up with any dead buggers in my house! :o)

We're trying some ultrasonic doohickeys to keep them away. Just might need a couple more.

Just a friendly reminder from the local Cat Safety Commission - If there are kitties in the vicinity, never use mouse poison to rid yourself of rodents. The high concentration of poison can cause great harm to poor little kitties who may eat them in their dying state.

Poison is out of the question for a few reasons; the main one being that there's a little kid there.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
