Childhood memories drew me to this old barn; the old milk can gave me flash backs of my grandparent’s farm and the “milk route” they had, supplied by five Holstein cows. Gunny sacks, hay bales and watering cans were commonly found on the farm; however, I don’t recall them being stored so neatly.
Cats freely roamed the barn yard and were always present at milking time. I later learned that cats were allowed to sop up spilled milk, but never formally fed so they would hunt mice for food.
That might explain why mice are so shy. Can you find the mouse hiding in this photo?
Thought for the Day: When the mouse laughs at the cat, there is a hole nearby.
