Just some random thoughts on librarianship, photography, cooking, life, liberty, and the pursuit of anything that sounds interesting.

Little Field Mouse (reunited with the field...Saline, Michigan)
There was an annoying ad a number of years back for a Real Estate company where the Realtor rattled off four of five things she did - prompting her companion to say "busy day". The Realtor replied "Busy Morning". That is how my day started.
The Hero of the Day (sorta)
This morning (Saturday July 20, 2013), Cosmo the cat was darting back and forth and making a noise that usually comes with trying to get something...I thought he was crazy as usual, until I saw a tiny mouse dart out from under the couch in the beach room and then back under. For around five minutes, they played...well, cat and mouse. I blocked the door to the rest of the house and was hoping I would have a chance to get the mouse. Finally, the mouse made a run for the door to the garage. I quickly opened the door and the mouse ran out - story over...right? Have you ever seen a movie where the clear bad guy gets caught half way through - and you are thinking...well, there is no way that this is the end. Think Star Trek Into Darkness and a million other movies...so was my story over, well not really.
The hero of the day - one cat named Cosmo - ran into the garage, grabbed the mouse and brought him back INTO the house. He jumped over the door block and ran into the living room. Really...this was an inside job!!!!!!!!!! After some hiding, and a few more minutes, I was able to get the mouse trapped under a side table next to the stairs. Using the box from our new cell Samsung Galaxy III phones (which are now - two days in - already twice as useful as our old phones), I was able to trap said mouse and bring him back to the field. Since the picture of the day rarely presents itself before 7am...felt it was important to capture.
So Cosmo was not doing this for anything but play...well, cat and mouse. Note to self - Cosmo needs better cat toys.
