Yes, I got it. haha And I remember Topo Gigio (I'm that old!)
Seriously, J.Griff, I understand your concern about
having mice around and the possibility of diseases. If I were you, I would contact a pest control company but if that cost is too expensive, look into some kind of rodent control traps. Make sure there isn't a food source they have access to in your kitchen. For example, plastic containers in the pantry will keep bugs and rodents from chewing through bags and boxes of food. Inexpensive plasticware is sold at DollarTree, for example. Place rodent repellents (or poison) around the outside of your house foundation.
I hope you are feeling better!
(off the boat, too.)
