The other day when Whirlwind Dave decided it was time to do some
slashing and burning cleaning up around here.....
He commented that there were a few mice running around in the front of the tractor. It seems to have been a winter of mice living in vehicles. Two cars here are blasting out from the vents, bits of insulation, feathers and whatever else the mice used to make their winter headquarters. The day I'm driving and a mouse crawls out of those vents will probably be the day I'll have an accident.
So this morning when David started up the tractor, he had a hood ornament for a little while.
The mouse looks a little PO don't you think?
It stayed in place for a while, and then bailed off at the back of the barn, where no doubt it will wait until the tractor is parked back there again.
If I need to use that tractor, I'll be banging around all over the engine cover before I flip the lid to the battery cover and hold the wire to the battery terminal. That's our hi-tech starter. Under that lid is a great place for mice to hang out. Shudder
