I carved a small dead mouse stamp out of pink carving material. I slammed together a down and dirty little pamphlet book to use as the journal for the next month. And as often as I can catch myself with a mousie of advice ripe for the giving, I stamp a mousie in the journal and print the advice in tiny letters on the carcass. If I have managed to catch the mousie before I lay the advice on the person, I hang the mousie up by its tail. If the advice escapes, however, that mousie runs across the bottom of the page. It has been interesting to see how often I harbor mousies, and using the journal has definitely reduced the number of mousies that I am laying on various doorsteps.
