Its Nature

I am a complete softie when it comes to animals of any kind, and I hate to see them suffer. Tonight was no exception. Mazikeen found a field mouse in the garden this afternoon that was dying and sat with it until M saw her and went to see what was going on and moved the mouse out of harms way, but it passed away quite soon after. There was a little baby mouse peeking out so M put some seeds out for it to eat. Early evening we found a tiny baby mouse under one of the garden chairs that was thin and was looked like it too was dying. M picked it up and called me over to see it. As my hands are always really warm I took it from M and kept it warm until we got a little box and put in little pads to make it comfortable for it and put it in a warm place and watched over it. It moved about quite a few times, but I could see that its little heartbeat was slowing down, so sat with it until it too passed away.

Now, most people know me as a bit of tough bugger, feisty and dare I say, fighty, but when it took its final breath and his heart stopped I felt all kinds of sadness. I am a complete softy when animals are concerned. I was brought up in the country and worked on farms from an early age, had a career as an agricultural consultant and we always had animals and livestock, but every death I thought was sad. Our garden is like a pet cemetery and I have buried all our small pets that have passed away over the years, from guinea pigs to fish and said a quiet goodbye to them all. The little mouse was no exception and is buried under the silver birch tree.

Just before he passed away.

31 Days of Music – Day 3

A little late with my post today, but still day three.

My pick of the day is Black with “Wonderful Life”. This was a big hit back in in 1987, although it was released in 1986 then again in 1987. Back when I was 21 I worked just across the hall from the studio where he was recording his album “Black” and my work colleague’s girlfriend was one of his producers. Black’s real name is Colin Vearncombe. In January 2016 he was involved in a car crash in Cork, Ireland and sustained serious head injuries which he died from a few weeks later at the age of 53. Such a shame as he had an incredible voice and was quite talented.
