Igor the Giant Mouse

A while back I posted on our local Giant Mouse, Murray.  Or as I prefer to call him Big Dee K6.  I had initially been of the impression that he was named Ivan, apparently based on my recollection of another Giant Mouse I had run across in prior travels.

Well, I found him on our recent road trip.  Not Ivan, but Igor.  Close enough that I am pretty sure this is the guy I was remembering. 

Igor is stationed outside of Carr Valley Cheese House on the south side of Fennimore, Wisconsin.  He has been there since 1971.  He is named for Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, for the simple reason that Stravinsky died on the very day Igor the Mouse was delivered.

Igor the Mouse actually has a rather rat like tail, and remarkably large eyes.  But he is yet another product of the prolific FAST Industries of Sparta, Wisconsin.

A road trip moment with my pal Igor.
