In The Attic

WARNING: May offend animal lovers..

Don't get me wrong, I like mice, I reallly do... Beatrix Potter books

..those these two look like hoodlums to me

And other sweet fairy tales...Narnia's Reepicheep was kinda cool...

..but when they are "doin the dance" in the attic above my headboard at 11pm at night I have to draw the line...

Unfortunately, that particular part of our attic has not been looked in since we bought the house in 2000 (gulp). And hubby, not particularly fond of playing the role of assassin (some how my family thinks I'm better at it - ask my Sister about the chipmunk slayings) left me to do the dirty deed.

So equipped with my "packets", long sleeve shirt, hat, safety glasses and flashlight (heh, you never know what might fall on your head !)...

I entered the black hole (man I've got to lose a few pounds). Astalavista micey friends - the party is officially over (she laughed wickedly)...
now if I can only get them to vacate the Garage!


  1. Chipmunks yes, bats wrapped in a table cloth and coming into the house to ask my opinion about something outside? - SHE'S A WUS!!! LOL
    J xo

  2. I love the Beatrix Potter characters. I wish I could find a set of embroidery patterns with them :)
    But I wouldn't want the little Hunka Munka in my attic.

  3. Oh yuck, I am not good with this rodent stuff. I think you have the Country Mouse from the children's book City Mouse Country Mouse, and Don't give the Mouse a Cookie. LOL I love Children's Literature also.
