You Don't Have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One!

I'm trying to recuperate from my long weekend! I think I used just about every once of energy that I had left in my body to make it through the Worship – Fest. While I do that, here are more funnies from my mom.

I want to thank all of you for thinking of me on what would have been my sons 20th Birthday. I made it through the day with just a few tears. If you are familiar with my blog you know I am a real big birthday person. I love to throw birthday parties for my family and the people that I love. It is just always a little harder on his birthday because I can't do that. I never want to forget him so I set a little time on what would have been his birthday to go over his picture book.

Thank you so much for all of your comments, and well wishes.

You Don't Have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One!

We were dressed and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet and put the cat in the backyard. We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house. The cat we put out in the yard, scoots back into the house.

We didn't want the cat shut in the house because she always tries to eat the bird.

My wife goes out to the taxi, while I went inside to get the cat. The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit.

Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, obviously without my knowledge, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later, I get into the cab. "Sorry I took so long," I said, as the cab drove away. "she was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!"

Woops The cab driver hit a parked car.

Well, Lori, I laughed at that one too. I'm glad you had a busy weekend to help you make it over. We celebrate birthdays a lot in our family but really didn't at home when I was young.

Losing my brother when he was 21, our family knows the pain of birth, and death days.
Take good care,
