From the McLean County Historical Museum. The back of the card has a message from a little girl recovering from chickenpox, poor kid
Also, for the first time in a week Brian is getting a real dinner instead of sandwiches or warmed over spaghetti or pizza. He’ll also be able to eat at 6pm instead of 8 or 9. Damn Daylight Savings Time, anyway.
Ham, new potatoes, peas, rolls, and a relish tray (devilled eggs, homemade pickles, olives, carrots, celery), with banana cream pie for dessert. If he falls asleep over it, I won’t blame him a bit.

He is re-roofing the house with his brother and three teenaged boys. When I walked in the house this morning after running an errand I noticed the first aid kit had been brought out of the cupboard.

155-year old (and still functioning) mousetrap
The following email was sent one morning early last month by the Assistant Curator of the Museum of English Rural Life to the staff.
“There appears to be a dead mouse in this mousetrap, which is not described as being there on the database.”

From the November, 1952 Workbasket magazine. Instructions are on my Flickr account. If the jpg looks a bit lopsided, it's because I was playing around with our new printer/scanner (which Reserve Cat doesn't care for as he can't sleep on top of it the way he could the old one).
