Mouse House

who out foxed who?.... a fox chases field mice into the house mouse invasion.... Normandy, the cat, smacks lips while on night duty the sound of vagrants.... two different worlds are living just floorboards apart silence of the lambs.... scurrying feet on attic floor wakes man counting sheep an angry farmwife... a carving knife is missing from the kitchen drawer a tail-less mouse.... angry rodent chases the farmer and his wife three blind-sighted mice run up the grandfather clock.... grandma reads nursery rhymes new fangled mouse trap is set with a piece of cheese... dinner was a snap cow jumps over moon.... no creatures were stirring not even a mouse +++++++++++++++++++++++ Dedicated to "a mouse goes "squeak" !! For Skat !!

Wildly funny, Carrie! Field mice used to steal dry food from my cats' bowls in the garage -- while the cats watched! Of course, when they were kittens, they were always on the prowl. But when they got older, they let the mice have a field day. Couldn't fire my cats of course, but it sure did cause me consternation. Love, Carolyn
