Life is sometimes full of little surprises.
Like ... toads in flowerpots and planted boots, a snake on my walking path, or a face to face confrontation with the squirrel I call "the sunflower bandit."
After you experience such things, you begin to expect the unexpected as much as possible.
But I didn't really expect it when opening this old box out in the shed.
I was looking for things to use in the barn and remembered it. I knew it had old silverware from an auction, and some farmy stuff Myguy tossed in it. Upon opening it, ... wouldn't you know... a mouse came flyin out at me. Surprisingly I didn't really scream. I think I nearly wet my britches, but;... didn't really scream.
After the country mouse got outta Dodge, and I gathered my wits.... I began to hear something?....
What was that sound?....
By golly it was coming from the box.
Great... -- all that hay and bits of plastic was a nest.
(I did not remember there being a hole in the bottom of that box, but there is one now.)
I could still hear "squeaking."...............
Ohmygosh.... do yall see what I see? Recognize that yellow bag? I turned it over for ya.
Miss Mouse made her nest using an old bag of Dcon.
I feel so mocked.
Mocked by a mouse.
It was time to find the source of all the squeaking.....
Is anyone still with me?.... If you're squeamish about these kinds of things...
Just kidding!!!!!!!!!! It's really not that bad.
Did one of you just scream?
Please say you didn't.
We are bigger than they are.
Are you a man or a mouse?
lol Sorry I couldn't resist. That's something we say at our house all the time when someone's being a total wimp. lololol
Okay so I had my gloves on... when I picked one up.
I kinda think they're cute but they sure can get into stuff and destroy things.
....I'm not sure what happened after these pics exactly.
I'll say goodnight and give you a new picture thought.
Butterflies and zinnias.
Oh and how about some lemon pie? I just had a piece and it was ohsogood.
