Here We Go Again. Tropical Weather

      The meat and potatoes of forecasting, during the Spring and Summer.  HEAT!!! Yes, those thunderstorms,  rainshowers and flooding are terrifying!  However an astonishing number of vulnerable people die in situations where family members leave the aged,  kids and pets to die.  Image you that guilt and to know, you did it.   You did it

It ain't the heat, it's the humility. - Yogi Berra

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. - Harry S Truman

It is a criminal act.  It is selfish,  short-sighted and sad.   How could you rationalize it?  Tell that to the couple who can’t have kids.  Tell that to the elderly,  whose time is expedited by foolish idiots and their carelessness.  No amount of tears justify it.   Imagine you dying a painful death, the same way, your family or pets.

Pets are like family.  You did it.  Can you live with the heart-break? You can’t take back lives. It is done!

Every One has hope.

“There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart’s desire. The other is to gain it.”
George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

All of us suffer.  No one escapes the ‘rusty knife’ that captures one and all.

By the same token, we all experience joy and rectitude.  Displaying our trophies, to our friends and forgiving others and then ourselves.   We spin our tapestries with silk and cotton.  We suffer pestilences with those we are in love with.   We also love obediently.   We share and accept gifts.  We pay others with intangibles and hope, even as we are beset by storms.

We shine our cars til rust, ever-after.    Our shuttered habitats. A shrine. A home, a sanctuary.   Shuttered by real tears and rent fabric.  Man-made and otherwise.

Like children at Christmas, we unwrap our presents, expectant hearts and joyful interludes.  We all suffer and laugh concurrently..

We are planning a couple of things. One is a PR campaign for Morissette Amon.  Not Alanis BTW.  Secondly,  purchasing a motel to house homeless Veterans,  giving them a safe and non-judgmental place to live.

The Cat and the bag.

Kind of ironic,  I think.  A pet,  finds happiness in a plastic bag.  She finds intrigue there.  Simple,  safe and happy.   This cat is younger than  the other cat.   Baby is everywhere I go,  she rests at the door until,  I come in.

I am not sure of who the pet really is.  She sleeps in the day,  and treats the room as a kind of ‘Disney World’.   I am sure has broken the sound barrier, as she glides across the room and making a lot of noise.   My first inclination is to tell her, to behave.  But when I ponder this,  I am happy in her noise.

She is like a light house,  esconsed on a hill,  a guidepost of what lies ahead and unconditionally  watches our for us.   She has a responsibililty to her sub,  a quiet recollection of harmony,  and I like marmalade,  adding flavor and robust reminders, through her play.  At times,  she uses her to paw,  to get my attention.  And she wants me to rest,  while she nestles next to me.  I felt her paw on my elbow,  many times,  reminding me,  of what matters most in this world.

My other cat,  already 15,  is a bit more sedate in that regard, but man is she a sweetheart.  I swear,  she has two purr motors.  She purrs and then she seems to add a purr and loves to cuddle in my arms.  As she looks around,  I mention her name (Lacey) and her heads move over to my head, as if hugging me.  Really cute in that way.  A real lover,  happy in her affair. And this, after the redolent balm of friendship.

Two types 0f anchors,  equally good,  each with their own plastic bags, a place like a harbor, the boats and bags, coming in and out.

Thoughts from a bogus…. cat Lacey

I am a cat w/o felt hat.  Do you have a problem with that?  I like to eat and I will repeat it again,  “I love to eat”.   I will also deceive you to eat again and then purr in the corner as I have my quarry too.   I am not afraid of humans but they are afraid of me.   They are afraid because I might rub upon them and claim them as my own.    When you are sleeping I will wake up and run through house and I don’t even know  why.   In fact,   I never know,  unless it is meal time.  And god forbid if you ignore me because I will get in the little box and scratch and scratch until you tell me to stop.

Been there and done that

Been there and done that.  

I am a hero!  I am cat hear me roar…..

I will give you that look and purring walk away.   I am sassy and I know it,   You better not put a bird house near a limb or window,  but Tweetie will be in trouble and I will laugh at your horror.   I am big (8 lbs) and rugged as they come.   I am a snowshoe meaning I am part Siamese,  but I am seldom angry,  a great hunter and I will bring you a bird so you eat healthy.  And I do not do vegan anything.

Lacey1 If it  weren’t for heads I would get lost….

I used to be in the Bluebirds until I realized there were no birds but a bunch of young female humans and they are annoying and stuff.   Now I did join the Girl Scouts because I love the uniform and their cookies rock too.   I also prefer Catsup to spelled that way for some reason but I digress.

And George Carlin is right.   We cats can do anything but because we are adept at reverse engineering.    The Asian people are jealous,  if that tells you anything.   My favorite baseball teams are the Cardinals,  Blue Jays and the Orioles for obvious reasons.   In football I hate the Eagles because they got our running back.   I am not jealous but I am going to give them the Bird Flu.

I am coming out with my Politically Correct Cat Expressions.   I tell you this,   President Obama never chopped down a cherry tree and former President Bush either.   I would love to mace Congress people both parties.   I figure Jackson Galaxy should be president because then we can make dogs second class citizens.   I  mean dogs are lame.   They actually think humans are in control.   Ever see a cat fetch  a newspaper.   If we fetch anything it will have catnip in it and by the way,   Catnip is okay but I prefer Olives and the Pimentos.   I rock and roll to country music and the kind that was cool before country was cool.    It makes dogs howl so it can’t be all bad.

WhAT I  What I dream about,  bird rich environment and claws of aviary destruction…

My owner is a weatherman.   What an ass clown!   He actually thinks his weather should gets windows 8.1.   I do humor him though.   I cuddle up to him to get rid of any fleas and get hair in his beard because you should see him squirm.  Ha.  Humans!   Especially males.   Being a girl cat I have my feline wiles and male cats get twitterpated as I arch my back and my tail fluffy.    I am so bad that I am on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list because I love giving males Cat Scratch Fever but literally and figuratively.

Well I am going to get one of those kitty furniture trees and hang upside down and flaunt my tail for all the studly Tom Cats and to swat my owner when he isn’t looking.    He is  going to think I am deranged because I am and that way when he touches my beautiful fur of my six pack,  he will  be in for a big surprise.   Cats break wind too!

Me and Foghorn mess with the Chicken Hawks and the dogs.   And all that stuff you see about Mice and Dogs getting over on cats.  That is so much  Urban Legend!  Do you realize there are singers with the names Urban and Legend and they coo over that modern junk.   Oh I get it.   Your dog ran away when you got a cat.  hehehe.   Like Bugs I am a stinker and I know it.

By the way,  cat(ch) me at the Cat Improv in the coming weeks.   I am trying to convince my owner to be a dummy and me the ventriloquist and I didn’t even need a dictionary for that.

I’m a snitch, I am a thief

I love to give you grief…

I ate the squirrel today

And it tasted really great.

 

I know and I can’t change

Tossed salad’s not for me.

CAT and water

 

You looked at me and saw

So innocent and purring

Adorable and all.

 

Yesterday I hissed

Must’ve wondered you missed.

Was that a tear up in my eye.

 

 

So eat your veggie burger’s

I like meat and all that stuff.

Lean Cuisine is so nasty

It tastes like moldy rust.

 

 

I’m a cat,  I’m a glutton,

I’m in your wine and in your dinner

I’m a beggar,  I’m a thief.

You cannot catch me.

 Cat eating cartoon

I am in your nightmares,

Under your big soft couch,

Scratching your bed.

It’s my face that you dread.

 

I ate your plant and stole your covers

And got litter on the floor

And then you swept me up,

Along with it, out the back door.

 

I climbed into the chimney,

Used the soot for camo,

Then I sneezed in your direction

And started laughing all the more.

I'd lol

 

I’m a cat,  I’m a glutton

 ate your dinner, ate your cake.

Now what else can I eat?

I know I am a pain

But you like it that way,

And I will be back after I sleep

and eat again.

We’re Not Going to Eat It. Oh no, these cats say, you eat it yourself.

My Cat is finnickycat logicTrue

Here is my version of on Dee Snider’s.   “We’re Not Going to Eat it”.

We’re not going to eat it,

take that nasty stuff and beat it,

No, we’re not going to eat it anymore.

 

We’ve got the right to lose it,

we hope you’ll never use it

this is our guts, this is our life.

We’ll fight the Pet Store Owners

Don’t pick our food cause

You don’t know cats, you don’t know us.

 

We’re not going to eat it,

take that nasty stuff and beat it,

No, we’re not going to eat it anymore.

 

Oh you are so jaded

and got us so spaded,

We don’t want vets,  we don’t want that;

Your food is caustic and gross

nasty and regurgitated,

if you call that food,  you don’t know us.

 

Meow,  Meow,  Meow

Meow,  Meow,  Meow

That food is gross,

That food is gross.

Incomodious Odes

King

It is pleasing to be pleased AND more than desirable to be desired.   To be desirous of being another one is  better than being a Kate in the Bush or rather two Kates or Phoebe Cates is a conundrums or two out of a pool.

Does the smell of a sagacious skunk offset it’s perspicacious  nature and esoteric wit?   Does the dying flower die to be on it’s own grave?   Is Willy Wonka a policy wonk or a Hershey’s kiss desired?

Every rose has it’s scones and every Knight has his flower,  so by that are we to assume,  that a stinky rose’s prick a knife?  Just wondering my friends….   I guess that makes me wonder what I am not sure.
