LtoR Abby, Krysten, MeriKate, Jillian, Alexis (aka, the Chick)

I woke up this morning to find an email from Jerri,


I went to tell alexis and meri kate that it was time to settle down and get ready for bed and I noticed the mice were fighting, which they never do, and upon closer inspection I found that we actually had 3, yes, THREE freaking mice. Seems that a little house mouse decided that we are good to our critters here and that it beat the hell outta living in the ghetto so he obviously climbed right into the damn cage!

So I will say it again...ONLY in my house does a free-living mouse cage himself to be part of our family! I am not shitting you this is a true story!

I'm still laughing! The little house mouse joined their zoo which already includes,

2 turtles
1 green snake
2 cats
2 dogs
and the mice!

Jami had a doctor's appt in Little Rock today so Abby and Krysten are here (MeriKate is at Jerri's). Zach's already in trouble for aggravating the girls. Constantly!

And it's only 8:30 a.m.

It's gonna be a longgggg day!

I wonder if the snake will eat the mice.

I also wonder if the cat will then eat the snake.

The turtles, I'm pretty sure, will just mind dey bidness.

Good Evening Brenda,
Ouch, mice. I don't like them one bit. Do you have a cat around? If not, I would get one for sure. LOL. Oh my gosh, you have a snake in your house? Oh my gosh, let me run now. LOL. I don't like spiders or snakes. LOL. Remember that song? I know what you mean about the aggravating thing. Our girls were out of School today and they have been at it all day. I just wanted to find a hole and crawl into it. Wait, maybe not a hole. LOL. There might be a snake or mouse in it. LOL. Oh me, I am having a blast here. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

No Zoo at my house, I've only got a bird, and hubby has some bird dogs.
Jerri and Bubbie have the house with the zoo. I did help catch the green snake though, it was a hilarious adventure.
