I took an early morning photo of the sun coming up ~
Then onto our menacing mice.
Our 'mouse' has turned into two mice so far. We tried the sticky plastic traps with a juicy glob of peanut butter in the middle and all we got was a few mouse feet marks. That didn't work too well.
Our other mainline of defense was old fashioned Victor mouse traps. Pam said she thought she heard one snap the other night. We didn't find it until the next morning when things were getting a little smelly in the basement.
Sure enough! One mouse met his doom in a classic mistake. It was swift and sure. He never knew what hit him! I would put a couple of pictures of the critter here but thought that would be a little much and in poor taste so to speak. But trust me, we got the first one.
Then yesterday morning I checked underneath the sink in the basement over by the black and grey tank lines and there was victim number two. Glad we are gaining on them. I am not sure but I think we have one of those little guys still running around. We will do more checking traps later today.
Yesterday I went for another run and toned it done a little bit. Last time I was running I was feeling it in my left calf. I have chronic muscle pulls and have to stretch a lot even when I am not running. So after a two day layoff I took it slow and did more stretching during the run and it went fine.
While I was doing that, Pam went for a walk. She is about 90% there. She did well on a couple of long but fun days. On Thursday (after going to Grand Rapids on Wednesday), we went over to Petrolia to see Bill and Marg. We had a good visit and dinner with them in Sarnia. It is a 2 hour plus ride each way.
Later yesterday, Pam did the laundry while I washed both cars and we watched some Wimbleton tennis. And last night we stayed up to watched some baseball and saw Edwin Jackson of the Arizona Diamondback throw a no-hitter against the Tampa Bay Marlins in a 1-0 win.
I took a couple of evening photos and called it a night.
