The Item for Day10: 10 Lords a’Leaping
The Person all caught up and Ready to Go: Me
“I’m outside the estate.” Pete radioed to his boss.
“Is he home?” Tony asked.
“Yeah, he’s home. They are all gathered in the living room.”
“Great. How many total?”
“Eight. Wait. No, his wife and daughter just walked into the room. 10. Plus, a guy I don’t recognize.”
“Odd. But we can’t back out now. Proceed on my ‘Go’.”
Pete waited, keeping his finger on the button.
“GO!” Tony commanded.
Pete pressed the button. Immediately, released rodents ran into the Lord estate. Rats, mice and squirrels scurried around the room.
“Ha! Ha!” Pete laughed. “Boss, I wish you could see this – the Lords are a’leaping!”
Just then, someone grabbed Pete from behind. “You’re coming with me.”
It was the mystery man, and he walked Pete inside.
“Jack, I found the source of the rodent mayhem.”
Jack smiled and said, “Book ‘em, Dano.”

Book ’em for rabies! Eww.
All rodents were tested for rabies prior to the release. (smile)
Nice one! No bodies to count either. 🙂
The Hawaii Five-O reference may have gone over like a lead balloon, but I liked it.
Thanks for your compliment.
Were you a fan of Hawaii 50 too? How often did we hear MGarrett say “Book em Danno”?
As usual this is really very clever.
Judith, you may be one of the few that got the Hawaii Five-O reference. Yes, I did enjoy the show, and I am glad you enjoyed this post.
This was a tough one, buuut you pulled it off.
I’m not sure I agree, Maxi, though I thank you for your kindness.
You need a squirrel?
‘Cause I know a guy…
You crack me up, SIG. I’ll keep you in mind, should I need another invasion of rodents. Thanks.
Rodent mayhem–the worst kind! lol
For certain, Patti.
I’d be ‘aleapin out of my pants if you released Rodentiation Mayhem in my house. My sympathies to McGarrett and family.
Sympathies accepted, PegOLeg. Thank you for visiting. Watch your step!
Congratulations!! You made it!
Back at you, Steve. I was in great company.
