This was the size of the mouse….a huge flippin’ guy!
Mom,Kali and I went for a walk in the back lane. There is a lot of tall grass on the side of the road. I noticed the grass was moving and there was no wind. So as Kali and mom walked on I investigated. To my surprise there was a mouse running haphazardly through the grass. Woo Hoo….I got all excited. Mom noticed something was happening and came to see what I had locked in my jaws. As she came closer, I wanted to tell her to stay back but as I opened my mouth the mouse took off, running over mom’s feet in its rush to get away. Closely followed by me running across mom’s feet. I can still hear mom saying, “ukk”. Closely followed by….”you better hurry Shoko, he’s a fast one.” I grabbed the little sucker and trotted home with my trophy. I decided the mouse and I would play in my vegie garden. I let him down and he ran right under the chick hen wire mom had put down so I wouldn’t dig up the carrots and beets while I was finding a nice place to spread manure. He ran across the path and I grabbed him and put him on the bean row. He ran under the chick hen wire again. I was getting frustrated with this nincompoop mouse. I looked up at mom and back down but the mouse had taken off. Mom saw it run for all it was worth over the garden and under the fence back into the lane. I never saw it leave so looked for it for a long time.
