the mouse scuttles into view, runs away as I shriek, comes back again, retreats as I move, then back again to pick up the crumb of bread.

Mmm . . . . I wish I could take such a poetic view of the mice that frequent my compost. :)

Thanks for sharing this.

This is my second wee mouse story of the day. Both were delightful and the mice won the games.
