After about five rodent free days, I added two mice to the ongoing body count.  It's now up to nineteen!  I found one victim under the frig in a snap trap, and the other was caught in the glue trap that I placed inside the motorhome motor.  The glue trap placed in the motor had slipped to the ground once the mouse was stuck.  Emma found that one more than interesting, as it's tail was still swishing around.  I put it out of it's misery and deposited it in the outside garbage can.  I was hoping the warmer temperatures would keep the mice in the fields, but I guess not.

After a long walk with Emma down FR1985, dodging the speeding trucks, I spent the rest of the day just relaxing.  In the afternoon, I got a call from the nursing home where my mother lives.  They were unable to contact my brother, who lives close by, so they called me to let me know that the doctor felt we should begin hospice services for her.  She was not having a good day; increased blood pressure and trouble breathing.  She is on a DNR order, and the prognosis is not good.  Eventually, I spoke to both of my brothers.  It is hard for all of us.

Last night's sunset was pretty nice for Anahuac.

This was the view out the window beside my table.

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later,  Judy
