Cat Retirement Home

Cat Retirement Home

Cat Retirement Home

We’re home, the guests are gone so maybe I’ll get around to posting some more. In the mean time, check out this coupon I got in the mail for cat services. Free cat retirement analysis. Free meow mobile transport service. Cat retirement home. 

I guess if you were a cat person and you had an old cat you just couldn’t bear to put down this wouldn’t seem as weird to you as it does to me.

I have not been feeling well today. But I learned something about diarrhea: It’s dangerous to just fart as usual. You know what I mean.

William G. McAdoo Quote
May 24th, 2008 by Mike

“It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument.” –William G. McAdoo

Which quote reminds me of a story I heard back in the 60s:

A man was driving on a one lane bridge when he met another one driving in the opposite direction. The second man said, “I never back up for and idiot.1

“I always do,” said the first. He promptly threw the gears into reverse and backed off the bridge.
