You Go For A Walk To See The World And Everyone Gets Huffy !

I decided I'd go for a walk outside yesterday and you'd think some people would be happy to see me expand my horizons, but nooooooo! Hey, the front door wasn't completely closed because someone was unloading groceries, so I went outside to see what was going on. The next thing I know, Jimmy's got me by the nap of my neck and is holding me so tight I thought I'd poop!

By the nap of my neck! I haven't been picked up like that since I was a kitten and I really didn't like being embarrassed in front of that cute little calico honey I was flirting with. When we got home, I just went to my secret little cat nap place and completely ignored Mr. James.

Pets Of The Week: In my treks around the journals I picked up some pictures from a few journals and I thought I'd share some of them with you. My pal, Missie, has a real menagerie at her house with the likes of her two pups named Maizy and Oliver. She also has a couple of cool cats named Merlin and Mona. Now, that's a lot of M&M's (plus an "O")! Either way it seems the letter "M" is the dominant letter. How Oliver slipped in is a mystery to me.

Now I'm not much for dogs per se, but I have to admit these two pooches are really good looking pups. That's Maizy at the top left and Oliver's the little guy on the right. Of course Merlin and Mona are the two kitties in the middle and usually, that's where you find cats...smack dab in the middle. You can visit Maizy, Oliver, Merlin and Mona at their mistress' journal called "A Middle Aged Woman's Ups And Downs." Try it, you'll like it.

Koda's a Corgi that lives in Southern California with Betty. He's a cool little guy that seems to have the run of the house and word has it that he's got everyone well trained to do his bidding. As it turns out, Koda recently got some doggie cookies as a treat and Betty's son didn't know they were doggie cookies, so he ate some.

Everything turned out ok though. Betty's son said they tasted pretty good. My only concern for the young man is the possible side effects of eating doggie treats. I know of a case of a nearsighted woman that gave her husband dog food by mistake and he had to be rushed to the hospital. The dog food didn't hurt him, but he was sitting in the middle of the street licking himself and a truck hit him. Stop by and visit my pal Koda and Betty at......

The Cat's Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

Bubba and his wife raised their nephew until he was of age including providing him with a college education. The nephew eventually got a job in South America and moved there permanently. The nephew stayed in touch with his aunt and uncle and last November, he sent them a beautiful parrot.

In December, the nephew called and said, "Uncle Bubba, did you like the bird I sent you?". Uncle Bubba said, "Yes sir, he was delicious." His nephew said, "Uncle Bubba, you ate the bird? I spent a fortune on that bird. He could speak three different languages." Uncle Bubba said, "Well, he shoulda said somethin'."

Ma was in the kitchen fiddling around when she hollers out, "Pa, You need to go out and fix the outhouse!" Pa replies, "There ain't nuthin wrong with the outhouse." Ma yells back, "Yes there is, now git out there and fix it."

So, Pa mosies out to the outhouse, looks around and yells back, "Ma There ain't nuthin wrong with the outhouse! " Ma replies, "Stick yur head in the hole!" Pa yells back, "I ain't stickin my head in that hole!" Ma says, "Ya have to stick yur head in the hole to see what to fix."

So with that, Pa sticks his head in the hole, looks around and yells back, "Ma There ain't nuthin wrong with this outhouse!" Ma hollers back, "Now take your head out of the hole!" Pa proceeds to pull his head out of the hole, then starts yelling, "Ma Help! My beard is stuck in the cracks in the toilet seat!"

To which Ma replies, "Hurt's, don't it ?!"

That's Possum's Journal for this week. Have a great weekend and more next Friday.

Shame on you Possum for sneaking outside. There are big, bad things out there that will ruin your well being. Little Gabi used to try it once in awhile but I would shoo her back inside immediately. I'd never met the first set of friends that you mentioned, but I've enjoyed Koda's antics for sometime. Did you know that Koda does not like cats? That's what I hear from Betty. You have a good weekend and for Pete's sake ~ stay in the house ! Linda in dreary, windy & rainy Washington state

|Our rescued Rottweiler first hated Sharon's fancy cat, but in time they made friends and are good buddies now. But I hear that some dogs will never adapt to cats in their 'territory.' Maybe they take after their masters...
