Service Cat Blog Friday



For this Cat Blog Friday...

... a real service cat. Yes, they're real.

New Florida Law Punishes Fake Service Animals


It's now against the law in Florida to pretend your pet is a service pet.

I never really thought about this problem until we were eating at the Village Inn when a guy walked in with a Doberman. Being owners of a Doberman ourselves, we wondered why this man picked a Doberman for a service dog since they're not the smartest dogs... well, at least ours isn't.

This dog was well behaved until he PEED ON THE FLOOR!

Real service dogs don't do that.

Happy Friday, everybody. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.

Throw Back Thursday

Below is the largest Southern toad [Bufo terrestris] specimen that I have captured in my yard.



We get these very large toads this time of the year. They leave their poop all over the carport.

My husband cooked this batch earlier in the week.

Yum.


Getting Fed Up



Not there yet, but the GOP and some Republican SCOTUS nominees are going to drive me to apathy if they don't shape up.

When Birds Attack



Dive-Bombing Birds Attacking Houston Neighborhood

My mother saw a bird swoop down on and peck me on the head and she laughed so hard that she cried.

Maxine



This is our Doberman, Maxine. She vomited on the hardwood floor in the office today and I'm mad about it. I'm the alpha female in this house and I'm cleaning up her vomit? What's wrong with this picture?



Blue Monday



OK, I've had two cups now... feel free to speak ;)

James Horner 1953 - 2015



James Horner, Film Composer For 'Titanic' And 'Braveheart,' Dies In Plane Crash: The Two-time Oscar Winner, 61, Worked On Three James Cameron Films, Two 'Star Trek' Movies And Classics Like 'A Beautiful Mind,' 'Field of Dreams' And 'Apollo 13.'

Even though he was a consummate film composer who scored many films, you may not know Mr. Horner's face, but I'm sure you remember his outstanding work in diverse films. His inimitable style will be missed.

RIP Mr. Horner.


Thank You!



I am honored to be one of the recipients of the Paul Revere Award for 2015 from Political Clown Parade

Thank you everyone. I am happy to be in such distinguished company.

Meet Missy



Missy, the new member of our family. She's my daughter's cat and would only be staying with us temporarily... yeah, right.

There must be a giant lollipop on my front lawn... SUCKER!

:)

Anyway, the photo looked better on my phone and this one is the best of the lot; the rest were a blur. Capturing a photo of such a young kitten is like nailing jello to a tree. Well, at least I'm going to need a better camera.

Update:

What Were They Thinking?



From Business Insider comes an article that makes my mind reel:

The US Agency Plundered By Chinese Hackers Made One Of The Dumbest Security Moves Possible

"Contractors in Argentina and China were given "direct access to every row of data in every database" when they were hired by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to manage the personnel records of more than 14 million federal employees, a federal consultant told ArsTechnica."

A simple head-slap moment or insidiousness on a scale which we've never before seen?

My choice isn't the V-8 moment one.

This Nobel Prize winning scientist finds women in the science world distracting...

The Non-apology Of The Year Award Goes To Nobel Scientist Who Thinks Women Just Cry All The Time

Dude, I find your nostril hairs distracting-- what is that a special look you're cultivating? Wild eyebrows aren't enough?

I can't take it anymore ... I'm going to have a good cry.

;)

BTW I think they're handing out Nobel prizes too easily. Bet you didn't know that my cat,
Shoshin, has one, too.

Frappo-Crappo



First of all, I don't believe in shaming people for their personal behavior, because if you are hell bent on putting this excessive amount of sugar in your body, then have at it.

Me, I've never had Starbuck's coffee. I'm happy with Folgers, a little milk or cream if you've got it, and NO sugar.

I'm not going to judge... how do you like your coffee.?

Who cares?



Pardon my French, my blog is usually G-rated...

But Bruce, you have managed to out K the K clan.

Does the fact that I don't care about your life make me a bad person?

I don't think so.

Just go away, please.

Dance like no one is watching... but wait, no one is watching.

Why would you not stand and watch this cow's outstanding moves?

I find this cow's cavorting uplifting in a weird, twisted way.

Throw Back Thursday



I first posted this in 2013:


This is the latest crop of grapes from our grape vines...

It reminds me of an old joke:

A duck walks into a bar and asks, "Got grapes?"

The bartender, confused, tells the ducks that no, his bar doesn't serve grapes. The duck thanks him and leaves.

The next day, the duck returns and asks, "Got grapes?"

Again, the bartender tells him that, no, the bar does not serve grapes, has never served grapes, and, furthermore, will never serve grapes. The duck, a little ruffled, thanks him and leaves.

The next day, the duck returns, but before he can say anything, the bartender begins to yell: "Listen, duck! This is a bar! We do not serve grapes! If you ever ask for grapes again, I will nail your stupid duck beak to the bar!"

The duck looks at the bartender and asks, "Got nails?"

Surprised, the bartender says, “No, we don’t have any nails.”

“Good," the duck says, "Got grapes?”

It's an oldie but a goody.

*

Our crop this year has yielded very few grapes. Luckily we only use the grape leaves and not the grapes.
