Last night was a drizzly night, punctuated by brief, torrential downpours. As is typical on such nights, my co-workers didn't even want to leave the building they were "meesing" in at all. Typically, I let them out so we can "go on adventures" for a spell, then I let them into another building which needs meesing for a few hours. Longtime readers will recall that we lost a beloved mouser last year. At any rate, I was pulling solo duty last night when I ran into this little critter:
In the light, you can see some more detail:
While I am no expert in rodent identification, I'd guess that this little critter is a white footed mouse, the most common native rodent in these parts.
At any rate, the little sucker was lucky I was working alone.
Hey, since I posted a couple of videos from Australian bands yesterday, how about a rodent-themed number from Brisbane garage/punk band The Screaming Tribesmen?
There are a couple of live versions of Two Blind Mice on teh t00bz, but the sound quality is sub-par. It's good to see that they are still gigging.
