I'm guessing they all are using Tom Cat bait blocks for mice. We use them. They come as loose blocks in bulk, but also in petproof housings where the mouse has to go inside to reach the bait. The loose ones leave a crumbly green mess on the floor, toxic to any warm-blooded animal.

Ours come from either Menard's (hardware) or Wal*mart.

I think you'll be OK without bait when you get 3 more cats.

Remember Sloe Gin? Neither do I, except for the name. It's gin infused with little plum-like fruits called sloes which are soaked in the gin for several weeks & then strained out.

I told you that to tell you this: I'm in process of making a similar drink, in this case called Blackberry Cordial. It's blackberries soaked in sweetened rum (or vodka!) for 2 months, then strained out. I get to shake it up every Saturday till mid-September. The color is already there, but not all the flavor. Just wait!

Available for tasting and mixing all winter long. All you have to do is come along and volunteer. 😉😋😎

I thought 2 would do the trick! Helped a lot, but not completely.

Don't tell Martin we need more cats.
Ever see a full grown man have apoplexy? You don't want to, either!

I'm rolling!
I'm sure he would just love to have a few more.

I'm glad Annie and I are on the same page re: fur face family members. Love em when they visit.

Been catching up when I can. Worried everyone will be dressing up at the mutant lobstahfest so I now will be sporting NEW Canada T-shirts!

Great picks Jeff.
Dwayne I don't think I mentioned what a great job your doing on your coach.

David get ready
There's some mutants coming
Lock down the women

Thanks,

We used Tom Cat it came in a box as 4-1 lb. blocks. We can't use cats as I am allergic to them - breathing and seeing has become a habit for me lol. Otherwise we would have cats which would probably have resolved the problem.

Thanks to those that responded.

Guess I'll check out the local tractor supply in the morning and make sure I don't have that problem. I can fix a lot of things, but wiring is not a strong point.

The offer stands any mutant going to or coming from ME lobster fest can stop by here for a night or 2 for free. And as a bonus you can see rainmaker first hand. Fishing pond in front of us fishing river behind us . give me a call we miss y'all. Could use the company of a friend. It's been a hard few months.

Good evening, we're heading down to do the Grand Canyon. We don't want to spend weeks there but obviously want to experience its full grandeur. Does anyone have a suggestion on where best to stay? We'd like to see it by chopper so a park near sight seeing would be ideal
Thank you,
Be safe

We will be replacing one soon. Starting to get streaky, and I don't mean Martin's bacon.
