Gracie!


Well, it finally happened. Gracie has stayed high and dry since we left on June 12 '05. Two days ago however either jumping to the dock or back to the boat she must have come up a half a cat short. We heard some horrible howling and when we jumped up we realized it was coming from under the pier. This pier is supported along its center by piles. Gracie had her back feet (with claws) dug in to the barnacles on the pile and her front legs wrapped around the pile. I could just reach the scruff of her neck by laying on the pier and thereby rescue the old girl. Needless to say she was NOT happy. After drying her a little we stuck her into the shower to get the saltwater off of her knowing that she would begin to lick herself. Nothing kills this old girl though but we hope she learned her lesson about this dock.

Still reading "Breaking the Spell" (see the left side of screen). He quoted the old comedian, Emo Phillips, who once said that when he was a kid he prayed to God for a bike. Then he realized that God didn't work that way so he stole a bike and prayed for forgivness. Buy the book...I get points with Amazon!

Gracie:

They just don't appreciate a cat on the prowl for wild tuna. You were hunting darling. Hunting. Yes, hunting with dignity. Dignity.

Keep saying that over and over.

We at the GLF, a division of PETA, salute you!

Emo did his routine at my brothers wedding. And I wonder why it didn't last. You go Gracie. At least you can jump off the dock, Winthrop needs a winch and a prayer.

Boy, Winch and a Prayer...there's a great band name!

Jason said...

What's with the wet weasel and where's Gracie?

Wet Weasel...another great name for a band.

What's the can of Budweiser doing in the photo? Was our feline father figure drinking himself silly after another Cub loss and neglecting Gracie? Chairman!! Don't you have some kind of right wing death squads at your disposal?

Right wing - left wing.

We don't use no stinking birds to do our dirty work. That's what dogs are for.
