No mouse was injured for this photo! My several year old wireless mouse was erratic and unresponsive, plus the slider pads on the bottom had worn off. I had replaced it and it was in my electrical recycle box waiting for my next trip to the center when I had this idea.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.
