Mousetraps and Moon Landings

Folks, tell me something: Why hasn’t someone built a better mousetrap?

In this day and age, we sent stuff to other planets and people don’t even care. We’ve sent people to the moon! We have every kind of electronic gizmo known to man — and we still try to catch a mouse with a plank and some bent wires.

There is only one thing I hate worse than a mouse, and that is setting those cotton picking traps.

Now most of you know me; I don’t get rattled by lots of things! I catch critters and snakes with no problem, but i can not stand the snap of those silly traps.

They go off with the slightest of movements, but somehow after you set them, they will stay set for years! What is wrong with this picture?

Pam woke me up from a sound sleep with a blood curdling scream, “Mouse! Mouse! There is a mouse!”

She screamed as she danced around me on the bed! The only thing that scares me more than a mouse trap is a mad woman!

Somebody cover me; I’m going in!

And life goes on, on thompson hill.
