The Adventures of Dead Mouse

I had a helper yesterday to make my day go faster.
Meet Mr. Dead Mouse.
He said just call him Dead.
He did some sweeping.
The hammer was just a wee bit large for him.
Dead likes honey and was fascinated with the antique smoker.
He was very sad when the bee gloves would not fit.
Dead gave the grind wheel a couple of turns.
He laughed and said it made him dizzy.
He enjoyed checking out the old tools
and was very grateful he had sharp teeth.
This saw could not be mouse powered.
Pretty knowledgeable about power
Dead admitted he COULD possibly be
the reason this outlet will not work.
 Dead decided to leave the vise alone.
I would say that was wise considering his fragile condition.
Dead Mouse became Happy Mouse
when he discovered this hub cap.
He's a Chevrolet mouse through and through.
He swore on his mother's grave
he did not know this place was posted.
Dead spent the rest of the day dancing his little feet off.
He came alive to Queen's "We Are The Champions"
We both enjoyed the music.
Boston, CCR, Nine Inch Nails, even The Boss sang.
When I left for the day, Dead was still rocking out!
He will probably be too tired tomorrow to help.
It was a productive day.
A job is always easier when it's shared.
Thank you, Mr Dead Mouse.
You made my day.

Only you could have so much fun positioning a petrified mouse!

the only good mouse is a dead mouse, and this one was very helpful and most probably IS the reason the outlet doesn't work. i saw much larger cousin of his in our garage yesterday... the trap is waiting.

ha,ha - you are too funny. Loved the cute series of photos and story with Mr Dead Mouse. Oh, Gail, you crack me up.

Marty Damon said...

How wonderfully bizarre.
Edward Gorey and Charles Adams would be proud.

Sandy said...

Now that was funny, and entertaining......Mr. Dead Mouse!!!

Jo said...

Now that was hilarious, Gail!

Linda Kay said...

Gail, I'm trying to visualize moving that mouse from one place to another to tell your story! Good job, girlfriend.

Linda Wildenstein said...

You, my dear, are such a hoot. Mr. Dead Mouse was quite the adventurer......as are you. xoxo Linda

What a hilarious, fantastic post! Hope Dead continues to help.
Have a blessed day, Gail! ♥

I wonder if Dead Mouse knows Mr. Peabody. He lived in my old Ford several years ago. It took months to find him. The mechanic finally found him dead, under the hood somewhere. I wrote about him on my story page.
I think you had more fun than Dead did. Great story!

Debbie said...

eeeeeek, dead or alive they creep me out but it sounds like you got a lot done!!!!

Carol Henrichs said...

I know you like to re-purpose things, but you may have crossed the line on this one. :-) Very creative. BTW, Dead has some great taste in music and in hub caps...

This should be titled "what a girl won't do for her blog!"

Ugh.......

Arkansas Patti said...

What a delightful, creative series. Again I say, you really have a fertile mind. Who else would have such fun with a dead rodent?

Karen S. said...

You made my day as well, as my mother always said a good mouse is a DEAD mouse, but your Mr. Dead Mouse was such an awesome helper too!

Susan Kane said...

Excellent! A dead mouse has found a post-mortem purpose in death. I hope you can find some other dead mice to make up the chorus line.
You, clever girl, you.

For a dead mouse he/she sure gets a lot done :) This is absolutely going to be the most original - and interesting blog post of the day!

Josie Two Shoes said...

Too funny! We totally enjoyed this! 🙀 thinking that perhaps you need a little time away from the farm! LOL 😍

This made me smile!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Oh my goodness, you had way too much fun that day! Back to work! Smiles.

Ida said...

Oh my gosh this was so hilarious (and a bit creepy too). Seriously did you find this dead mouse and just decide to photograph it in various places? How clever!

Lynne said...

I must confess . . . I tried . . .
But my legs and feet are up on a chair . . .
I don't do mice . . .
Or mouse . . . .
How could you do that to me . . .
Scaring me in your creative little ditty!
Promise . . . no more "mice dropping stories!"
PROMISE?
