Dead Mouse in the Wall

One of the hazards of living in a big old house way out in the country is mice. Almost every June, I get a dead mouse in the wall. You can smell it. I could say it reeks, but that would be an understatement. Fortunately I can always burn incense to cover the odor. Inside of a week, the smell will be gone.

Oddly enough, I never catch any mice in mousetraps in the summertime— that happens into the fall, when it gets cold out. No, in June they just die inside the walls.
