Happy and brave

I regret to say that one of our mice passed away sometime today. He was taken from us suddenly in the living room. Funeral services were held this afternoon, with the Revs. Anne and Ben Sims co-presiding. The text was from the pilot of "The Cosby Show" and included the words, "Lamont was a good mouse, happy and brave. Our rodent friend will be interred in the Avery County landfill early next week.
No flowers, please. Condolences may be left in the comments.

On another wildlife note, we've seen flying squirrels and wild turkeys today. They live outdoors, as we really prefer our wildlife do. Although we are fond of the mice.


  1. Are you sure it was a boy? Glad you are enjoying your vacation. When do you head home?

  2. Clearly you have never found mouse poo in your silverware drawer... :)
