Mouse Eats Blackjack Table

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Ms. Duck and I had a gig for a New Years Eve casino party. What I didn't mention was that while grabbing a blackjack table for the party, I noticed that a mouse had chewed a large hole in the felt.

Not good.

Obviously, I couldn't use this one, so I loaded another and off we went.

I waited until the temperature warmed a little and since it got up into the low 70s yesterday I replaced the felt.

Much better, no?

The mouse? Lets just say that my blackjack table was his last meal.


  1. Well, I don't feel like quite as big a slob. Or at least I feel I have company.

    I trapped four of the blighters this year. Saw one one evening. Didn't realize it was a family. Only time it happened and I felt a bit dirty.

    I used peanut butter on an enclosed trap I picked up at the Ace Hardware, BTW. Not nearly as diabolical as yours. I am envious.

  2. Three cats in my house = extremely small mouse population.

  3. @ Ken- yeah, peanut butter is my bait of choice too.

    @ lighting- we had a cat in our warehouse, but he came up a step short on the road in front of our business.

    I don't mind the mice as much as the snakes that stop in for a rodent snack.

  4. Mmmm I love rattlesnake, much tastier than cat or mouse.

  5. @ Neo- Rattlesnake ain't bad, but mouse has a little more white meat. Fileting them can be a pain though. Spread a little peanut butter on them after fryin' 'em up and ta-da!

    Right Josie?

  6. Ahahha, i laughed so hard on the third pic! :D Witty, very witty!
