It didn't roar

Yesterday was the day for small critters, first the hummers and then the tiniest mouse I ever did meet. Adorable. And dumb!! This mouse missed the lesson on how to take cover. It sunned itself on the path and ate bits under the wood chips. It didn't have a care about gigantic humans. It nibbled its way along the weeds, left side of path, crossover, right side of path, joggers, hikers, tourists, and one totally unconcerned mousekin. It got photographed with cameras and cell phones. I'm glad it's been memorialized because chances are very good that this whimsical critter will become owl supper.
