A "DUH!" sentence coming up. We all get older..even pets. I bought mine, who is going on ten years of age (somewhere in her sixties, I guess?) a set of steps. Really, she doesn't need them. She would be the first to tell you. She thunders down the hallways and races like a wild thing through the house the same as she did when she was a kitten...sorta like me! She leaps up to the window sill, (I don't!) she sure has no trouble getting into bed and beats ME to it most times. She goes from 0-60 (feet in her case) in 3 seconds. (me too...I'm pretty fast! ) BUT I bought it because the little so and so has shredded my right leg a few times trying to make it up onto my lap as I soldier away here at the computer. She leaps up...maybe I am wearing shorts for instance, and there is no cloth for her front claws to grab hold of...so.....if I don't hurry up and scoop her into my lap, it's a big "owie" for me. So, I saw the steps advertised and bought them.
She took a look and said "You've got to be kidding! What do you think I am? Decrepit or something? Is this an insult or what, I ask you? Who do you think I am buying me this old lady stuff?" So, I rubbed the steps down with her dr-ug of choice, that being some catnip, and put a few toy mice on the three steps..hung back and waited. She decided the catnip was an afternoon snack, had a few bites, and still won't use the steps. OK. Back to square 1. (She will...just a question of time).
Meanwhile, I was out and around showing off. (GOOD hair day, D!!!! I have my sign turned the right direction on the fridge to "Good hair day")
I have accidentally found MY colors through time, by the way. Three of them. Women will understand what I mean. Coral and apricot and 'crayon' blue are SO not me. BUT, soft yellow, mossy green and pale nutmeg brown SO is!!!! Try to find much in those colors!!! You can't. I have something, one thing, in each. When the planets come together and my hair looks this good, all gleamy and amber...I haul out one of those colors for a top and go out feeling like a million bucks. Doesn't matter at all whether I LOOK like a million..I FEEL like a million! That's what counts! That way, I too can go 0-60 feet just like the cat does!
I am going out for dinner tonight. I'm going to show off my QSL card I got from eBay too. The one I am having dinner with is a HAM radio operator. This QSL card is from 1948, from right here in town, has a 1 cent stamp on it...and a scene of the town. AND the sender (whose writing looks as though he may have been older) lived just a few streets from where I am now. Cool.
What shall I have for dinner? Does chicken sound good to you?
