Today, Rats and Cats

Another great Saturday. 3 1/2 routes down. Looks like I get to drive to the plant again.

This week we had a vehicle accident. One of our vehicles was struck by a woman driving through a red light because she was loopy from a dentist appointment. Fortunately, she was charged for the accident.

Also had an Express failure. It’s been a rough week.

My wife has a doc appointment Thursday, so I’m working Monday, which is usually my day off, and taking Thursday off.

ZoeOn the really grim side, today is my evil cat’s birthday. Zoe is a terror, and her litter sister actually gave someone a nervous breakdown. Zoe is one of these cats that will sit on a shelf and knock stuff off just to see what you’ll do. She’ll be 11 years old this year, I think. And she’s as evil today as she was when she was born. Evil. E-V-I-L.

KathyToday is also the anniversary of my 2nd wife’s death. She died during a heart procedure. I’ve made sure she’s had flowers every year since 1987. It was really hard to deal with during the first years, but now I just get a little down. Sometimes I can remember her so clearly it’s like it was yesterday, and other times everything’s fuzzy. I do still miss her. I have a better portrait shot somewhere, I just can’t find it right offhand.

Is it time for a smoke yet?

    Your cat is 10 this year.

    By gosh, you’re right. I don’t know what I was thinking.

    She still glowers, but want’s a lot more attention. She goes through these phases where she throws stuff off of shelves, making sure I’m paying attention. Essentially, she’s still as evil as she ever was.

    Libby is 9 and still as dumb as a doorknob, but she loves to cuddle.

    You were thinking “How long do cats live anyways?” Lots of people have that thought.

  4. Jack says:

    I know at the top end, some go 18-21 years. By the same extent, we lost one to a stroke at 5.

    Wishful thinking.. Andy, is sweet as can be. I’m pretty sure he is a part of the furniture.

    Here, I’m the warm blooded furniture. This is my destiny in life. Pet rest.
