Uh oh...

Twas the week before Christmas

When all through the house

The Powers were stirring

And so was a MOUSE!!

The Powers were headed

Out the door for points south

When Thomas arrived

With a mouse in his mouth!!

He presented his treasure

At Mike’s feet with a purr

And it hit the floor running

Under the couch in a blur.

Not a moment was lost

As Thomas lurched for the beast

Disappearing under the couch

Hoping for a nice feast.

Quite a commotion was heard

As if both were crazed

And Thomas emerged

Looking lost in a daze.

Where’s the Mouse? Mike exclaimed

As Thom dove out of sight.

Don’t worry, said Ben,

We’ll find it tonight.

And as Mom slept upstairs

Her clan crept out for the day

Never leaving a note

Or a warning to say…

There’s a mouse in the house,

Better watch where you tread.

We’ll tell her tonight

So all day she won’t dread.

So here DJ sits,

With her feet in her chair.

Hoping that mouse

Won’t creep out of it’s lair.

I just found out my lovely family didn't tell me there was a mouse in the house until I called DH at work to let him know that school is getting out an hour early. Nice, eh? And the weird thing is that I THOUGHT I saw something out of the corner of my eye this morning...but I thought I was just seeing things. GULP!! Well, I've been keeping track of Thomas ever since, he'll be my champion if that little beast comes back again!! Anyone know of a humane way to get rid of little beasties? *shudder* I mean they have to live too I suppose. Just NOT in MY house!!! LOL

Love, love, love the poem. Fabulous!! And thank you so much for the chuckle. LOL

But sorry about the little mousie. Maybe if you think of it as a teeny, tiny kitty it won't frighten you so?

Great story, just happy it wasn't at my house! I remember seeing a blog posting once with a tiny mouse peeking its head over the curtain rod... Do you recall that? Seems like it was one of the Friendly Stitchers.
