She tried that at the Grand Canyon - So now I stay away from the edges. At the GC she was taking my picture and kept telling me to back up, back up. Not going there again!!

They don't like the peppermint or spearamint oil, how ever they just seem to move to another area. In the end we had to go to a feed store and by something that we used to use in our barn at our farm. It worked.......so far no smells but that was always the plus side with the stuff.

'Course isn't there always the rope light trick? I've heard those are now downright nifty!

Best of luck!
Sue we did go with Tomcat, the bricks. Just knew they were having a feast and so now for the repairs.......why is it that mice like electrical wires???

Sue -- Don has been home for a week now and it has been getting a little easier everyday. Today he had an appt with his new pulmonary doc who was the head MD in the ICU while Don was there. It was good to have his input and you could tell the Dr was proud of the fact that Don's still here. Every MD we have seen is calling his survival a bonafide miracle. I call Don our $6 million man. That's about what his care since 1/23 has cost.

I am Don's chauffeur. Arlene is a nervous driver, even before you add Don in his wheelchair. No way she wants to drive his brand new ramp van.

We got into an argument again today about the route I chose. For a man who can barely speak and is difficult to understand, I am amazed at the clarity of his cursing. I look at arguing with him as speech therapy. Not that I would ever antagonize him on purpose.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. I'll pass them along.
Barb I am going to order those and hope it will prevent another round of mice. Thanks!

I know what Sena would call it, "DANGER, DANGER!". She HATES taxidermied animals as it is, but one that is so obviously deformed would send her running.

Sena's native instincts are far more intact than ours are. No jokes of this kind work for her!

For some of us, it's funny, to others sad to make a pastiche of leftover parts like this. But then, the jackalope has been around for donkey's years. Sena runs, some humans giggle, and some buy.

No RVM has come up with an alternate name yet, Dave. Yours must be it, then. Although personally, I'd shorten it some.

I'll keep you in mind, Chuck. It's very kind of you to offer. I believe we'll need 'em all, though, so we won't have to impose on you.

Now if you'd like to come weed the garden while we're away....
