It's Friday. The cat wants to go out, but can't let her. She's not happy about it. It's pretty early. Choose one.

The dog ate my speeding ticket.

And, yes, the dog ate my parking ticket, too.

Correction to yesterday's post. It should have read, "Car goes into the shop. Again. The hissing sound wasn't the muffler, but a collapsed vacuum hose. That will help with mileage.

The other hissing sound is our cat coming home from the Vet's office. Had a scrape with another cat, and now we get to pay the price. No, I'm not available today, unless you need your cat given some meds. She really doesn't like that. But her level of fight is a good indicator that she's on the mend.

Car goes into the again. I have a feeling that hissing sound is not a snake, or it would have bit me by now.

It says "disposable" plastic cups, so I didn't think I should have to wash and reuse it.

That darn train was back. What makes a freight train stop dead in it's tracks, smack dab in the middle of the city, with no station in sight? The train was so long it blocked many crossings and I had to go WAY out of the way to find an open crossing so that's why I was late.

You don't have change for a hundred? Then I guess I'll have to pay
you back later.

The coffee will be ready in a minute. Just need pour some water in the tank, and measure out the grounds. It'll be just another minute or two.

I'd really like to avoid Ebola. It sounds nasty, and not a very pleasant way to spend one's last days on Earth. I'll decline any cruise invitation.

I'm sorry, but my equipment doesn't play 8-Track tapes. I can play some cassettes, but I'll have to clean and demagnetize the heads first.
