Secret Mouse Hunting

I am sure everyone who is familiar with NCI knows Mouse ( mouseplay ) She is involved with many things within NCI, especially teaching. Though not many of you may know this, Mouse has trouble with typing.

AK ( Alaska Udimo ) came up with a sneaky plan….


He organized for all of us to ‘chip in’ and buy Mouse ‘Dragon, Naturally Speaking’ and have it ready at her home to present to her at the end of the NCI Easter Hunt. Of course she had no idea what was happening until she was given the final egg to open at the hunt.

” I am pleased that WE, as NCI, made a good thing happen for Mousie and it was nice that so many people chipped in to help her. I am happy that it made her day and will assist her in being with us much more.”      AK

Mouse was so thrilled our gift moved her to tears, and I’m sure there were a few of us having a teary too.

“Ginger tell them that after crying for 30 minutes I got it installed and I’m IMing everybody I know just to practice with it”                                         Mouse
