Crunchy Parts

Phoenix: This has been sweet, even if we had to contend with our Yankee Cousin.

Diablo: Yeah, but I get that distinct feeling it is coming to an end.

Phoenix: Me too. The RV is in the driveway and she moved all the boxes out of the bed room.

Diablo: I was so getting the hang of catching mice down in the basement

Phoenix: I think they finally wised up and left. I haven’t seen any in a few days. Valerie was sure she would come back after being away for three days and find mouse heads everywhere.

Diablo: What are you kidding me? Let the crunchy part go to waste. Tasty treats.

Phoenix: It is all coming to an end, my friend. We are going to head south again.

Diablo: And just when I stopped shedding.

Direct Kill

Phoenix: Congratulations. I believe that was your first kill.

Diablo: Thank you.

Phoenix: However, next time don’t leave it in front of the bathroom door.

Diablo: I guess Valerie would have broken her neck trying to avoid swishing the dead furry body between her toes in the middle of the night.

Phoenix: You could have left it on the foot of her bed.

Diablo: I’m going back down into the basement. I think I heard more mice down there.

Sneaky Little Thing

Diablo: You let it get away.

Phoenix: Did not. It started to squeak and that’s when Valerie came in see what we were doing.

Diablo: We were just playing.

Phoenix: True, but I don’t think she cared too much for having it in the house.

Diablo: Sneaky little thing. I wonder where it was hiding for the past two days.

Phoenix: It was in the fold of the bath towel the last time I smelled it.

Diablo: About that time Valerie came into the bathroom with a bucket. After that it disappeared.

Phoenix: If you had not bit down on its head so hard it probably would not have squeaked and we could have been playing a lot longer.

Diablo: I kind of like this house. Large, roomy and a garage full of mice.

Phoenix: Beats traveling in that RV.

Diablo: Did you notice how cute it's eyes were?

Phoenix: Excuse me?
