drive vehicle. They helped us right out of that hole. We want to thank our rescuers "BEAR" from Ringold Ga. and "Jimmy Greene" from Cleveland TN. It's not every day people stop to help but we are very happy that they did. Thanks Guys!
I know everyone enjoys hearing about the animal antics around our house. Our son and his wife went on vacation and elected us to watch their terrier Zoe. During the first few hours while they were gone Zoe decided to get familiar with the cats of the house. OH boy what a circus.
First she decides to see how old Miss Cat is and see if she still likes to play. Miss Cat has her own ideas of fun and I don't think she was expecting this event to take place. Zoe was already well trained for circus acrobats and wanted Miss Cat to try it too. First she taught the cat how to duck and run, kind of like hide and seek but you get to throw the other participant across the room. I've seen my very mature cat do a somersault I can't even do.
The look on her face was priceless. Where's' the camera when you need it? Next I see Zoe practicing her 600 yard dash up and down the hallway. I am standing in the kitchen and this dog comes to a complete and abrupt stop and looks my way as I see my cat Gypsy with raised hair -- black cat Halloween style fly across my doorway. This cat I am telling you was almost four foot in the springing fashion style.
Just when I thought I had seen it all, I am in the doorway of the kitchen and living room near the back of my chair when Gypsy gets into bird perching slide action onto my shoulder. Zoe flies into the chair and proceeds to stare me in the eyes as if to say "is there room for two on that shoulder?" I looked at her in panic as she became perched like a cat on the back of that chair and all I could say was " oh no you don't " and then I ran.
Our house had now been invaded by the Henderson Whacko Circus. My birds even watched in awe as they saw this don't fly on a trapeze, then I could almost swear I saw her and the cats doing the Hokie Pokie turn yourself around game. Maybe it was the heemie jeemie game at this point who knows.
I laid in bed mostly sleepless for all the noises and running in the house, finally everyone went to sleep - except me....
I found out later that all I had to do was to tell her to lay down on her blanket and then cover her up and off to sleep she would go. When her sleep over was over and she returned home, I think she missed her new circus buddies. After all it's not everyday you get to have your own circus on your own terms now is it. She was a lot of fun.
The editor I am sure is biting at the bit by now so off we go to never never land where I sum all the nonsense up.
It is better to get stuck in the mud than to be a stick in the mud. Laugh instead of being angry you can actually think better. I mean after all, I did get out there and look helpless and probably really silly but we got help didn't we. (laughing myself silly). If we want to create amusement in our lives then invest in the warm and tender hearts of our dear animal friends, for they will give you endless hours of wonderful laughter. Actually, they may increase your life span by getting your heart to circulate with whacko antics.
Just like making lemonade out of lemons, adding grass to mud doesn't exactly make the bricks but it can be done. Our pets may bring out the animal in us as well by being as content as they are, with so much innocence in their own little world as they share it with us. However I still think dancing naked under the moonlight is a much easier job.
