Rural life with a mouse always keeps it interesting. Everyone has their mouse catching stories, from humor to sheer yuck! So my sister — unable to have an indoor cat to do mouse patrol because she’s extremely allergic — has tried various methods with extreme results. In her last home, someone in the neighborhood had used rodent poison and she ended up with one dead mouse decaying in a wall with a horrible smell. Not sure which wall, it became a hit and miss to locate and eradicate the corpse. Kind of like whack-a-mole.
Presently, she’s preoccupied listening to the mouse, not only exploring her closet but also the drawers of her nightstand right next to her head as she lays trying to sleep. Oh, ick. She was totally freaking her out when she woke my brother-in -law ( at 1:30 am), demanding that he set several regular mouse traps with cheese or peanut butter in her closet and behind her nightstand. He’s dealing with some very clever mice as they eat the treats without activating the traps. Still driving my sister crazy! To be fair, he’s caught 4 to date in various places. But she’s also added the super sticky pads to surround the trap in the closet, thinking they’ll be successful outsmarting these clever mice she hears at night, but so far no dice no mice!! Until . . ..
The last few days she’s had a horrible migraine and just feeling funky like she has the flu. Just going about farm life in Sacramento. While housecleaning, she discovered a foul smell in the bedroom, but couldn’t locate it. Until today!! She got down on hands and knees to look under her nightstand. In a very confined space, clear back past the area rug up and against the wall, she spied some big dark thing.
She grabs her trusted flashlight and realizes my brother-in-law had put a super sticky mouse pad back there without her knowledge and, yes, there was the busy-body mouse! Dead as can be, stuck in the pad as well as ending life tangled in her lamp cord! This is a true story. So now she gets the face mask, gloves, Clorox cleaning towelettes, Lysol, sprays her whole arsenal to erase signs of this pesky rodent. A stinky dirty job for sure, not to mention it had begun chewing through her lamp cord trying to free himself, explaining why her light had been flickering. Yes, obviously her husband caught an ear banging when he got home for not sharing where he had placed this particular sticky pad. LOL!!
Most of us, especially out in the country, have a very capable barn cat or two to keep the rodent population down. But for y’all unable to have a cat for one reason or another, you can really see the importance of formulating a plan and deciding which method of elimination (traps) you’re gonna use to be prepared for your own mouse trickery. Rural life with a mouse always keeps it interesting. But if there’s more than one unwelcome resident in your home you might just want to share the location of said traps, or I may be reading your crazy mouse story in your own blog.

Is team roping a hobby to some or is it a second career to others? This photo is a picture of my son, J.T. Bradley, roping the horns of the steer; he is called the header. The heeler lassos the two hind feet (hooves). This is a timed event. If the heeler only ropes one hoof, a 5-point penalty is issued. Now each rider has a score, based on skill level. The teams are put together by a combined score. You always are not roping with the same partner; this depends on if your attempt received a score. If the team fails no score for the attempt.
It was so much fun to watch J.T. practice in Galt, which has rural real estate much like Wilton and Elk Grove in Sacramento county. Team roping requires a huge commitment and a big wallet expense. J.T. brings 2 horses per rider to switch off as it is hard work and the horses get tired. Next week, he goes to Reno for the finals in a National Championship week. There are huge entry fees and, of course, the horses take a financial investment each and every day with long days of training to be competitive.
Riders of all ages and both men and women compete in this team roping sport. If you get a chance to see a team roping event, I think you will totally enjoy it. It is like watching an old western about the wild wild west. It is an exciting sport. Roping training happens in rural real estate locations.
Team roping a hobby to some or a second career to others? Believe it or not, team roping has much in common with real estate. Both take a team of individuals working together toward a common goal. Real estate has its own sense of adventure. It also is a hobby to some as well as a career to others. Neither team roping nor real estate is ever boring.

RD2 zoning is a big plus as it stands for 2 homes per property and an accessory dwelling unit. There is a paved frontage road and fenced green pastures. There are old structures that are tear-downs, just perfect for building your custom home. Our phones have not stopped ringing. If you want to own your piece of the Wild Wild West, drive-by Verner Ave in Sacramento.

Mixing Auburn rural real estate and Mexican longhorn was quite an experience yesterday. I went to visit my son, J.T., after working in the area. He said, why don’t you come over to see my cows at the 100 acres I lease? Sure, I said, thinking: nice photo opportunity. Little did I know, we would be having an adventure.
He loaded up his 4-wheel drive vehicle in the back his horse trailer and off we went. Upon arrival he said, why are my cows looking at me from the neighbor’s property? Yes, the cows had escaped. So, JT, his girlfriend, Leslie, and myself were off chasing cows. I was later given gate duty.
A big black bull with huge horns was about 20 foot from me while I worked the gate to let cows in without letting any escape. This is the picture above that I took so you can see how close I am to the bull. Auburn rural real estate turned out to be awesome. We were fixing fence driving up and down hills and herding cows back home. You never know what a day will turn out like when you visit rural ranches with animals.
If you would like to have a rural real estate Realtor sell your property, call Weintraub & Wallace Realtors — as we even herd cows. It is all in a day’s work. We can be reached at 916-233-6759.
