Sharing My World 2016 Week 50

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


What is your favourite smell? What memory does it remind you of?
Bacon cooking. It reminds me of food!

What type of pet do you have or want to have?
I recently had a pet mouse. I called him Moby.

Well, I say “pet”. He was living under the fridge. I bought a couple of traps. Snap squish!

Only joking! Here is Moby. Sorry about the picture quality.


I drove Moby out to the local owl sanctuary and let him go.

Only joking!

It was the local cats’ home.

Only joking!

I let him go in the countryside.

Yesterday Moby II joined him. Here is Moby II.


I’d just got back from the work Christmas party at 23:30 (40 miles away) and I was not impressed that I had to drive out into the country again. But you mustn’t leave mousies in the trap too long or they get stressed. Hopefully the Mobys will find each other.

Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I’m always early. I don’t like to be late.

For recharging, would you rather meditate, swim, walk, listen to music, write, read, yoga, qigong, other?
I plug myself in. I’m a robot! WE ARE LIVING AMONG YOU.

Just kidding.

Or am I? AM I?

    When I die, I will be absorbed by my computer and will join the ether (net). Or maybe I’m already there.

    How cool! Humane mouse traps! I have never seen them before. I use to have a cat that was a great mouser. I sure do miss her!


    • December 18, 2016 at 4:27 pm

      I got them off Amazon. Amazon has everything!

        Apparently, they work well!


        • December 18, 2016 at 7:10 pm

          Yep – especially with chocolate or peanut butter as bait. It’s their favourite apparently.


          • December 18, 2016 at 7:53 pm

            Oh really? I didn’t know that.

              Me neither until I started researching mouse catching πŸ™‚


              • December 19, 2016 at 2:03 pm

                You are kind to mice, I’m afraid I wouldn’t be.

    Thanks for sharing your world Mr RobotπŸ˜€

    So are you kidding πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing Moby with us.


    • December 18, 2016 at 7:11 pm

      Shame I couldn’t get better pictures but the flash was bouncing off the trap.


  5. December 18, 2016 at 5:36 pm

    Moby and Moby II are celebrating! Kudos to you for using the humane mouse trap πŸ™‚


    • December 18, 2016 at 7:16 pm

      Free at last! If you’d seen their cute little faces. I don’t see how anyone could deliberately kill a field/house mousie.


  6. December 18, 2016 at 7:18 pm

    Thanks for the smiles, always enjoy reading these post of yours. Have a nice day.


    • December 19, 2016 at 10:17 am

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! You have a nice day too πŸ™‚

    Love your Moby’s story πŸ™‚

          Seeing the mouse race across the kitchen was a surprise too!

            I know it is not exactly the place for races, but mice are so cute πŸ˜‰

    Your kindness to the Moby family will surely be rewarded one day.


    • December 19, 2016 at 10:19 am

      Mr and Mrs Moby will probably come visit with the 60 kids πŸ™‚

    MOL…you are to funny, Draliman…I can pick up the mousie..s if you want…MOL πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a wonderful day πŸ™‚ ❀

    I particularly enjoyed the saga of the mousies! Years ago, severai (8) of my pet mousies escaped from their cage and ended up under the fridge. This was early ’50s, and the fridge was a big gas thing. They then fled the house altogether and terrrorised ladies in the area. I was banned from keeping mice after that. So unfair… πŸ™‚ I’m glad your trap wasn’t the snap squish type.
    Bacon reminds me of camping holidays. My dad loved to get outside when we were asleep and start cooking bacon, so we all woke up to the smell.
    Don’t stay plugged in too long. Even robots can get a little frazzled.


    • December 21, 2016 at 11:53 am

      Ha, sounds like your mousies had fun πŸ™‚
      I’ve known confirmed vegetarians who confess to loving the smell of bacon cooking!


  11. December 21, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    I love the tale of the Mobys, Ali! Humane traps are definitely the way to go. I hope they’re happy in their new home. πŸ™‚


    • December 21, 2016 at 1:54 pm

      Running free in the great outdoors! It’s nice and warm for them too this year πŸ™‚


  12. December 23, 2016 at 1:20 am

    Aha! Ali’s a robot! I knew it all along.


  13. December 23, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    You’re a robot, Ali. Well, that explains a lot. Does your family know? πŸ˜€ — Suzanne


  14. December 24, 2016 at 4:23 am

    Mmm bacon! You got me with the owl sanctuary. I went all wide eyed for a half second until I went to the next line πŸ˜€


    • December 24, 2016 at 6:28 am

      I wouldn’t really have done that to poor mousie πŸ™‚
