This is a promo for a film by Carl McNiel and Jeanie Ackley about mousing in New Zealand they made a few years back. Even though though it was released in 2009, it needs to be mentioned again. Every time I watch it I think "How in the hell did they get that
shot?" The filming is unbelievable.It is available at Amazon:
Once in a Blue Moon: The Fly Fishing Adventure of a Lifetime
Mouse fishing for trout - someday.

Sticking with the mouse theme today. You get extra cuteness points for including eyes and whiskers,
although they better lay off my Cheetos, man.

Story Time! According to the Blackfeet, Mice should be left alone to do as they please. In the Beginning, all the animals were fighting endlessly who would be the leader of the animals until God taught them a game to decide who it would be. The mouse won the game, but realising that he was too small, and only wanting to live in peace with his wife and family, he gave the right to be Chief to be man.
Mice gave humans leadership over all animals, an interesting meditation for the next time you are mousing.
