Another Mouse Story.

In their Brooklyn home, my Norwegian grandmother kept a bottle of brandy "for cooking purposes". (Like fun she did, but anyway...) Her method for keeping the house free of mice was as follows...Into a saucer place a tablespoon of rice. Douse it with brandy, let soak. Put on counter overnight. Mice find saucer, eat rice with gusto, become drunk as sailors, pass out. Grandmother feeds mice to cats, who appreciate the marinade, and spend the rest of the day in a pleasant stupor. Everyone is happy including mice.
