    The three facts that I remembered was how they made soup out of Berry’s for the winter. And if we don’t stop driving 247 the world won’t be good by 2030 When someone played the game with bones who ever one would get something and if the other person took it they would put something on their head and loose all their hair that’s called the mice’s revenge . And my question is why did the mice put the thing on his head and loose all his hair?
