It is commonly held local belief that my neighbours have a rodents nest in their garage and every time they make an attempt to clear out their garage the furry little friends go walkabout.Well- at the weekend the neighbours made a half-hearted attempt to sort out their garage, which meant that Sunday evening we had a little visitor, of the mouse variety.
The mouse scared myself and Fiona who nows insists on wearing her Uggs everywhere.Why it scared me I don't know because I pick up and care for the Weekie boys daily.When the girls were younger we lived in a 17th century farm laborers cottage on the Berkshire/Oxfordshire border and when the grain silo was emptied yearly we had our fair share of visitors.
So yesterday I bought a bait box to catch the mouse and keep him alive until I could get rid of him in a local field. Would the sneaky little bu**er take the bait? Not a chance.The bait box now contains one of Beauty's chocolate stars(she doesn't know or she would be in there after it!) so perhaps we will have more joy.
I love the way the police make it clear that the guy was not intoxicated!
<Man hurt using gun to change tyre
A US man has injured himself in both legs after attempting to loosen a stiff wheel-nut by blasting it with his gun.The 66-year-old man from Washington state was repairing his car outside his home when the accident took place.Shooting at the wheel from arm's length with his 12-gauge shotgun, he was peppered with buckshot and debris. The man - who police say was on his own and not intoxicated - was taken to hospital with severe, but not life-threatening, injuries.
The man had removed all but one of the wheel nuts
