Click for a larger view. A mouse died somewhere in the floorboards under my desk. It has been a trying experience to spend 8 hours a day with the smell. I have faith that the corpse will dry out eventually.

There's nothing that matches that particular smell.....ugh! I had it in my house and finally found the little corpse under one of my book shelves...have no idea how long it will take to get rid of the smell.
BTW...thanks for making me 71 in your latest comment but actually I turn 74 this Thursday!

Oh, what a truly horrible smell that is! I know it too well. Once, a mouse slipped into my bag to die! I unknowingly carried him around for the day, distraught over the smell that seemed to be everywhere! It was horrible!

I hope the air clears soon.

Oh wow, I can almost smell it. That picture really gets the point across. I had one die in my car once. That was pretty unpleasant too. I hope the smell goes away soon!

What a fantastic mask! I wish I would've had one like that before we moved. We lived in a big old stone house and mice would die in the walls every now and then. Thank goodness the walls were thick, so the smell wasn't so strong.

Wow, I have missed a lot. These images are truly such a reflection of what you know, see, and feel. I feel like I am beside you in all of them.

oh caroline. that is a great image- the miasma has a life of its own. reminds me of eau de dead rat in our crawl space in west VA. mice are littler though, maybe it will mummify speedily..

Oh, geez.... now that can't be much fun. Ewwwww! I wonder how long it will take to mummify or at least stop stinking.

you poor thing - I cannot imagine even being able to concentrate with a smell like that wafting around you. In fact I don't want to imagine it. I so hope something changes soon!

wow. Yes, hopefully the smell will go away eventually. Candles!!! At least it is dead and not defacing baby blankets and bears.. or crawling in bed with you as our own personal Mickey did!
