What is it they say about the apple and the tree?

Today Laura caught her first mouse...the hard way.

We were at a meeting discussing the house we're having built and a mouse kept terrorizing the designer and the builder's rep so I offered a $5 reward to the first kid that could capture the rodent.

Both kids immediately jumped to action.

Over the next hour the mouse made appearances four or five more times until Laura managed to chase it into the sales office, corner it, and drop a styrofoam cup over the top of it. Caught.

I slipped a manila folder under the cup and took the mouse outside and tossed him into the lot next door. That should be the end of his time inside the sales office...

But it wasn't.

Thanks for reading,

So where did you ever get the idea to offer a $5 reward for catching the varmint?
