Food Chain

Outside, my orchids are starting to send up flower stalks. The garden is begging me to learn to make escargot, but in the food chain of life, I would rather feed the snails than eat them.

Mice, I might rather eat, if they look like this:

Niece Alden made this adorable mouse with my mother in-law. A chocolate kiss head, almond slivered ears and a maraschino cherry dipped in chocolate for the body compose the start of an infestation of the most delightful kind.

Merry Christmas! May the holiday- whatever name it goes by in your home, be magic!

To answer the requests for info on the eyes- decorator frosting from the supermarket in white and black. Pink frosting would also make a cute nose.

I hope you don't mind me using your image of a choccy mouse for a daft tragicomic poem. Please let me know if you would like it removed. If you don't mind, thank you very much. If you do mind, please email me on and I'll move it as soon as I see the email.
Thanks whatever the outcome,
Jonathan Buttle
