Obama, the erstwhile trustafarian
His grasp of the law is just barbarian
New Black Panthers in Philly?
Dismiss them; it’s silly
Let my people go, must bust an Aryan

This describes a good portion of my town. Spoiled brat trust fund babies. And those are the parents.

The political education of Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton began as a young man at Yale where he was radicalized. The zealous trustafarian then began tapping his vast un-earned wealth for purchasing political power for the ultimate goal of foisting socialism on the citizens of Minnesota.

Sounds like it has something to do with the estate of the late Bob Marley...

The clueless trustafarians
Who voted for emperor Obama
Were hoping to escape notice
Or becoming part of the drama

That didn’t last very long-
And isn’t it just too funny-
That as they were celebrating
He came after their money

Even now, that was not enough-
So how do those elitists feel
To hear he wants yet another bite
After promising not to steal?

It is mostly cloudy and 63, and I’m waiting to hear from my contractor compadre to call with the results on a bid he did-I don’t think it is going anywhere-there is something oily about the customer-but hope springs eternal and we need the work badly...

Midget girl came into season-the vet didn’t think she would, because she is well over a year old, and had not. Apparently, her stunted growth affected her hormonal balance. She is otherwise healthy, so my vet agreed to spay her this morning-she is just big enough, and won’t get any bigger.

For such a little cat, she is nasty when you try to put her into a carrier-she was absolutely terrified. Titus is actually looking for her, and eyeing me with suspicion, but Yeti boy acts like he is glad she is not here. I’ll go get her later this afternoon-she will likely get over her scare as soon as she is back, sitting on my chair-she is as much a self-propelled lap ornament as Titus is.

Now that's funny and so very descriptive of a kitty.

It seems to fit the way they invite themselves onto whatever chair I’m sitting on-at the computer, watching TV, etc-they get comfortable and stay there for hours, purring away and watching the commercials and shows with animals. All three of them come to bed when I do, and sleep there most of the night, too.

Aww....poor kitty. I hope she has no complications being so little.

Thanks-the vet’s office just called, and Midget girl is doing just fine-they said she is starting to wake up, so I’ll go get her in 15 minutes of so. The vet says there is no way she would have survived pregnancy-she is too tiny, and would have died.

If she knew what a short and brutal life she would have had in the forest as a feral cat, hunting her food and trying to keep it away from the normal sized cats out there, ending up as a snack for the mountain lion or a big raccoon, she wouldn’t think this vet visit was so awful...

Apparently, drugs make Midget girl paranoid-as soon as I got her home and let her out of the carrier, she hurried around on tiptoes, looking over her shoulder like she was on a covert mission, peeking carefully out of each window, and into each room before moving on to the next one.

She finally quit and came running when I put out fresh food all four pets, and after she ate, she started to chill-by the time I sat down to watch TV at about 6:30, she was on a fleece throw on my lap, purring and sleeping.

Hah! My 1st husband’s best friend from college would go into paranoia after just a couple of tokes of weed-he acted very much like the cat did, and it was hilarious.

The Midget was operating under the waning influence of whatever anesthetic she was given when she was spayed yesterday.

I may have to go to Colorado to test whether the paranoia is inherent to the drug itself or its illegality.

I’ve found that those who get that way when they smoke are paranoid to begin with-weed just ramps it up. By all means, run a few tests to see if the theory holds-can you get a research grant for that?

Remember the old Cosby skit where he talked about being encouraged to try cocaine at a Hollywood party? He asked that person what coke would do for him that was good, and the guy said well, it enhances your personality-to which Cosby replied but what if I’m an ass****?

Williams mat have done it, too-but I first saw it in the early 80’s on a cable comedy special with Cosby-my husband recorded it because he liked it so much.
