Dear Uncle Seamus; I am thoroughly confused about the upcoming national elections. Hilldog is calling Hairball the worst possible choice because he allegedly hates everyone. Hairball is calling Hil…

Dear GiG; There can only be two reasons for the unusual tint of the pool. The first is that the contractor pulled the old switcheroo and when he was supposed to install a high power filter he put in a smaller, cheaper model and pocketed the difference. Or they let the Irish team practice in it right after they had a few beers.
Dear BiB; To answer your second question first let’s just say that I get Father’s Day cards from all over the world. In response to the first questions you should find a hobby that interests you. You too can continue your education. Or, get up off your lazy butt and GET A JOB!
Dear SiS; Just how long have you been on this planet? We have a fickle lady called Mother Nature living here. She calls the weather shots, totally ignoring anything the science nerds or wanna-be’s say. Rule of thumb; Here in SC it is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Just stick your confused head out the window. Copyright 2016, Jim McGowan

“I guess the heat finally got to our Boss,” said Fast Eddie. “He is walking around in little boy pants, I’ve seen better legs on tables, and we’re the ones in fur coats.”
“With all this heat one of the odd things about our human is that he is heliotropic. He gets up at sunrise and crawls into our bed when the sun goes down. He just does not enjoy the fun stuff he can do around midnight. It was just the other night and we were playing ‘tag’. Ours is a fun game leaping on and off tables, chairs and counters. Lazy Jake jumped on the bar cart the other night. Bad move, because the whole thing came crashing down.
“Bottles, mugs and a big lamp hit the floor making a fearsome racket. That got old ‘lazy bones’ out of our rack in a hurry. The noise had us heading for the tall and uncut in a hurry. The words that he was yelling cannot be printed here, but he was very upset. Fortunately for us he isn’t very accurate with his kicks, but he was certainly trying for a 50-yard feline goal.
“Things finally settled down and he started cleaning up the mess. He was grumbling all the time. I guess he didn’t like soogeeing the deck at 2 a.m. We supervised from a safe distance. I guess we should cut out the ‘tag’ stuff for a while.
“A nice thing he did for us was finish off the back deck. He surrounded it with screening and put on a roof. He even put two of those whirly things on the ceiling. He put in a comfy couch and a TV. We are out there most days watching “Animal Planet” However, when it rains the roof makes a racket. Oddly our human likes that best. He hogs the couch and drops off into a deep sleep. Oh well, there’s no explaining things that the two-leggers do.
Fast Eddie continued, ” The other day my brother, Lazy Jake, and I were taking our afternoon snooze. We cats need around 18 hours of sleep a day or we’ll get cranky. Anyway, we were making our afternoon ‘Zs’ and we both woke up suddenly. The evil ‘red spot’ returned.
“Well we weren’t going to take this lying down. It was time to go into the attack,” said Eddie. Try as we might we can never catch it. You remember Lazy Jake?”
“Yeah bro, the ‘red spot’ is bad news” said LJ. “But one day we will catch it and when we do we will never have napus interruptis again.”
“Sleep well, my friends,” said Fast Eddie, “And don’t let the red spot bite.” Lazy Jake added.© 2016, Jim McGowan
Everytime I go to the doctors I get the same lecture. Essentially it is, “You smoke too much, you drink too much, eat too much red meat.” These people have got to get some new material. Well, that all may be true, but it is only true now. How many of us were told that […] […]
