R. I. P.
This photo has been in the file since hunting season.
This naturally opportunistic Common House Mouse got caught while foraging in the hunting shack.
Obviously the mouse fell victim to a bad but not uncommon mouse decision.
And although this is an unfortunate ending for this Common House Mouse the incident was also immediately recognized as a LVRE.com-quality photo and blog opportunity. Now all that was needed to bring the photo and the mouse to eternal internet life is an appropriate and complementary “mouse-in-a-trap” story line.
At this point in our modern history the obvious story choice would be a tale related to the world’s economic woes and the folks trapped, much like the mouse, in countless and unfortunate financial predicaments.
But I must resist.
We could probably all agree that we’re getting an ample supply of that type of information from our media friends. So, as a simplistic but direct substitute I offer the following statement.
“I hope, with continued improvement, this website becomes a mousetrap for you.”
And… of course, rest in peace, Common House Mouse.
(On a serious personal note… I wish the best for all who, for whatever reason, find themselves in a tough financial situation.)
