Going on a Mouse Hunt

“Love to eat them mousies,
Mousies what I love to eat.
Bite they little heads off,
Nibble on they tiny feet.”
“Hap” Kliban

Pittsburg is famous for its hot links. We tried the links while there, and agreed they have reason to be proud of them. So be sure to try them while you’re there. Also visit the Rural Heritage Center Museum to see a replica of the Ezekiel Airship. It’s name and design were taken from Ezekiel 1:19. It reportedly flew through the sky in Pittsburg one year before the Wright Brothers’ plane flew in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

In Pittsburg, follow Hwy. 271 to intersection with Hwy. 11 (Daingerfield Hwy.). Turn east on Hwy. 11. Then turn right into Rose Hill Cemetery. Just inside the cemetery you’ll pass a large magnolia on the left. You’ll find a place to park just beyond the tree. Park next to the marker with a little girl on top.

Facing west with your back to the little girl, walk across the drive and on to a grouping of crepe myrtles. You will find the Cat box in the middle of the crepe myrtle on the left of the small stone marked “mother”. After replanting the Cat box, return to the driveway and help the cat find the delicious mousie.

Back at the little girl, walk back down the drive towards the entrance. Just inside the entrance is a dirt path to the west. Take the path to the far side of the large stone marked “Huey”. Turn left and walk to the clump of crepe myrtles. Facing the west side of the crepe myrtles, look for the “Mouse” box hiding in the center of the trunks. After logging in, replace the Mouse box where you found it, covering it good so that it can’t be seen.

Please reseal the baggies so that the contents stay dry and rehide the boxes so they are completely hidden from view.
