My friend, Julia, was one of the attenders of Bubba’s birthday party. Julia is one of the kindest people I know – seriously. Still, she has no problem with calling it like she sees it and as she left my house she said, “Your entryway really stinks. It smells like something died.”
Monday I went to the basement to transfer the laundry. I had been aware that the basement STUNK for a couple days but knew that our ever present stack of used diapers was probably the culprit. As I bent over the pull stuff out of the dryer, the stench got stronger. I sniffed around and realized the smell from the corner – – over behind the extra furniture we are storing – – was REALLY strong. I ran to get Honey.
Turns out something DID die – jury is still out on what it is.
I say mouse. Honey says mole.
Either way – – DISGUSTING!
Having seen cats (and ya know we had them) drag dead moles onto the back patio growing up, I feel rather sure you have a mouse. Also having seen WAY more than my share of mice in the state of KY, I feel really rather sure that you have a mouse. Also having seen your blog makes me NOT want to see your blog today. Niiiiiicccce. (How’s that for some Trey R. from T-roy!) M
I concur that it is a mouse. Moles have tiny eyes, since they furrow under the ground. Plus they are skinnier than your specimin. Sorry. — Marcie
Sorry, but I had to tell you…glad you can blame the stench on death and not your childrens poopoo!
THAT’S A MOUSE!! A mole would have a thicker tale…I know b/c I have pulled tons out of the pool. Gross, huh? But don’t you just love it when someone tells you your house stinks, makes you feel like a real winner.>Cousin from Laurens, SC
Oh my, that’s for sure a mouse. I think your honey was just a bit scared. Tell him not to feel bad. You should see how high Kermit jumps when wasps are nearby.
