When I last left you, we were amazed at the powers of the tomato to call in reinforcements to deal with those tomato worms and the beans were feeding the soil. But just wait, there’s more. More fascinating stuff going on right under your nose.

Speaking of noses, several years ago I was away on a trip when I got a phone call from my husband. He told me there was a strange smell in our utility room that he just couldn’t put his finger on. We have inside cats, so that’s where he initially placed the blame, but he couldn’t find any kitty-related evidence.

He, then, came to the conclusion that there must be a dead mouse or other little animal inside one of the walls or between the floors and he was going to take apart the suspended ceiling in the basement room below it to investigate.
