MOUSETRAPS AND MARSHMALLOWS

I am always interested in new products and sometimes I wonder where people come up with all these ideas? Sometimes I look at the new items on the market and wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Of course each new product I see I want to try and see if it is really handy. Of course, through the years I have spent mucho dollars on things I may have only used once.

While electronics are constantly being updated, one common item which received somewhat of a facelift is the mousetrap. The Victor Company has been making the little handy little traps for well over 100 years.

Most people that know me know that one of my biggest fears in the world is the mouse. I would rather face a deadly snake or grizzly bear than to have a mouse in my home.
