While ex-President George W, Bush was on the book signing tour, he managed to watch the Ky/Uconn Championship game alongside former President Bill Clinton.
What Bush and Laura didn't know, since she was in Florida, was that a drama was being played out at their ranch in Texas, the one where they protested the war daily until Obama ran it.
Two or three employees had reported a funny looking mouse in the ranch and wanted it killed before Mr & Mrs Bush got home.
Monday evening they had it cornered. only it was a gopher. Now how to kill it and not make a mess?
So some watched the rodent while others found everything from RealKill to solvent. The solvent had an effect and so they sprayed more.
However, while they sprayed and the gopher seemed to be on its last legs, someone lit up a cigarette.
A flame and solvent in the air in a closed area doesn't work well. The explosion sent two lady cooks and three ranch hands flying through the door right behind them. A firetruck got there quickly and everything was put out, including the ranch hands.
So immediately, a special cleaning-service was called and cleaned up the mess. While the bandaged ranch workers tried to work up a tale to tell to the Bush family, the singed gopher walked out and headed for the barn.
"Leave him! Leave him!" stated the ranch overseer. "I'm tired of playing Caddy Shack!"
