I occasionally have had a mouse in my house. I wonder if I could lead it out by playing a flute?

Flute playing for rodents seems to be a lost art; it is not even mentioned here:

If the flute method did work, I wonder if I would have to take lessons, or would the mouse just follow any tune, even if it's discordant?

Do you ever wonder whether Helen Keller wore "Sunglasses At Night"?

I have never wondered that, but I do like that song.

At least it's a good song to be stuck with!

I'm not sure how to celebrate Insurance Awareness Day or Paul Bunyan Day. Maybe you know of some better holidays.

Paul Bunyan is a popular dude but I could not find any events near me. Maybe do some reading?

Notwithstanding all the political news today, I am very aware of insurance having recently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan. Yesterday I received a booklet (200 or so pages) describing all my benefits. I think Paul Bunyan would be more interesting!

I hate to read insurance literature. I hope that you can make it through those 200 pages.

That 1953 model would likely be very sought after.
