PHASE II - it's time to get serious

I know it has to be time for battle
when I find this in my captives' new home :

If any of you steady readers out there...
cricket....hello?.........anyway, the mouse trap
(fall into the bucket) idea I found on the www
actually worked, so I set up two more with
bolt cans (3 now, total) last night. I heard one
of the cans catch the baited tube and mouse
from inside the house, this morning, around
7 AM. The racket this event made could have
been not unlike a twelve inch wharf rat in
an echo chamber with hammers on his feet.
Just about an hour later, a third mouse
fell for another of the traps! This idea works
great! After too much coffee, energy
levels peaked, I decide to elaborate on this
simple idea and build what I would call:

The Continuous Live TrapFeel free to copy/print/sell my plans and
share with friends for profit, as there is no
copyright on this product, to date. Oh - it has
to be a proven design, also, of which it is not.

So, we got three mice, you see. Livin' in
an aquarium on the work bench. Yeah....
Great idea, Dad.....(i'm such a dumbass...).
It was witnessed, by a non-posting blogger,
the skinnier of our two wieners caught a pup mouse.
I don't think she ever had such a fun toy as this.
Now I have competition, but the mice don't
have an ice cube's chance in hell of staying
here when things, outdoors, get stiff. :^)

to be continued....

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
