I see some interest in doing a swap. I have been wanting to do this one for a while now. Any type of mouse or rat pattern. Foam or hair will work. The first 12 that want in. I may split it into 2 groups so you don't have as many to do. Due date 31 May,2018

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

These guys invaded my feather supplies a few years ago and all I can tell you is that working with packed hair and a razor is a mess.
