So I walk into my office this morning and I see this in my ceiling in the light panel. A fucking dying mouse!!

Over the past thirty years occasionally a mouse finds it's way in. Maybe half a dozen times. I put bait outside the house as I saw that something was nibbling on the insulating foam core board which I had installed when I sided years back. Well this fucker ate the bait and decides to die in my office lighting.

So I go to remove it and it slides off the light panel and disappears!!
Great, so now I have a dying mouse in my office! Ever smell a rotting mouse? Worse smell I've ever smelled!!

I finally found it and to get it I stab it with my old grill fork. It fights me. Poor thing is dying and some asshat stabs it!!!

Got it outside and flung it along the fence close to the mulch pile.

It had probably been attracted by the mulch.

I found this in a box of my father’s stuff. I think he was the only Jew on the football team during the ‘30s. I wonder how this Shmohawk mascot would go over today.

I drove by this tableau last week. When I drove by a few days later the ponies were rearranged in a ring. I Googled it. Atlas Obscura calls it Ponyhenge.

Nope, as art the extra space makes ms mouse even more lonely.

My first thought however when I saw the image was the negative space was perfect for an ad or magazine cover. Splash some electric color through it and you’ve got a biotech or testing lab annual report cover. (Assuming they had the balls to run an edgy, nonPC image) :D
