Very freaked out mouse, held by tail. ("I've got a mouse by the tail, it's plain to see....") Delilah cornered this little critter in our upstairs hallway last night. The heartless farm boy in me was inclined to let nature take its course, but when the girls discovered the scene and began screaming in horror, I intervened, snatching it up and releasing it to the comparative safety of our front yard (though not before taking this commemorative photograph). In these times of economic crisis, it's nice to know I can catch a rodent with my bare hands. At least we won't go hungry (not around here, anyway).
