  1. Weeeell, believe it or not, I kinda hoped you'd be posting THIS today

    https://youtu.be/TBxRRUj1bcA

    in light of Minxy's arrival.

    But I well understand, given present circumstances at your house, why you chose this most sober, reflective and nostalgic of Chopin's waltzes instead.

    1. Minxy is home now -- about $1000 later.

      What a scare we had!

    2. Thank God she's all right. You had me really worried.

      It's incredible how very important these dear little lives become to us once we accept responsibility for them, isn't it?

      ell, all's well that ends well, I hope.

  2. Scare? Minxy? So sorry to hear.

    I love de Laroccha's style. Beautiful, interpretive, not mechanistic.

    1. Baysider,
      Friday, Minxy knocked off a bottle of Mr. AOW's meds and ate some (clonidine, to lower blood pressure).

      Off to the 24-hour vet to get the reversal agent (IV). After 24 hours in the ICU, Minxy returned home yesterday afternoon.

    2. I'm so glad! THANKSGIVING will be a happy occasion at the AOW household after all.

      Let 'er RIP!

  4. Why Kittens are Better than Babies

    Veterinarians have evening hours.

    Your kitten won't be able to disturb the whole movie theater with its crying. Hell, you don't even have to take the kitten with you, and if you don't, you don't even have to worry about whether or not the sitter is available tonight.

    Your kitten won't grow out of those cute but expensive clothes within three months.

    Kittens look cute if they haven't had a bath this month.

    You probably don't have to lie awake nights wondering how you are going to finance your kitten's college (or high school) education.

    No one will accuse you of being an unfit mother if you don't want to breast feed your kitten.

    No one will accuse you of perversion or sexual abuse if you fondle your kitten.

    Dan Quayle can't accuse you of destroying the moral fabric of the country if you aren't married to the father of your kitten. In fact, nobody will ever ask you if you know who the father is.

    No one will question your abilities to function normally at your job when they hear you just got a kitten.

    You only have to change a litter box once a day.

      So true! I went in bleary-eyed to work two days after getting Minxy. Everyone understood. LOL!

  5. So what happened to Minxy?? That you want to say ....

    1. Minxy indulged in some inadvertent drug abuse, Baysider. She ingested some of Mr. AOW's blood pressure medication, was later seen staggerng around in an apparent stupor, was then rushed off to an emergency cat hospital open 'round the clock, kept overnight, given IV treatment at great expense, and released yesterday apparently none the worse for wear.

      We experienced a great sigh of relief that the little fuzzpot was safely back home and running around in true ktten fashion once again as though nothing had happened.

      We thank God with all out hearts for this outcome, and bless His name for His great kindness and infinite mercy.

    2. FT,
      Inadvertent drug abuse?

      To the tune of $884!

  6. OFF-TOPIC but G-R-E-A-T GOOD NEWS:

    CHARLES MANSON at long last is DEAD. The rotten bastard was 83.

    HELL WELCOMES its NEW RESIDENT with OPEN CLAWS.

    HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH!



    I, personally, resent the taxpayers being forced to keep this diseased PIECE of FILTH alive for so many decdes. He should have been EXECUTED within seconds after he was found GUILTY.

    Manson was a TRULY Evil Man. Yet we kept him alive. It galls me to think of what we are now doing to Judge ROY MOORE who is the victim of a particularly vicious, totally imprincpled Political Hit Job, when he is anything but an Evil Man.

    What galls me even MORE is the way so many who OUGHT to know better have jumped on the KILL ROY MOORE NOW BANDWAGON with unholy zeal, which only proves to me how completely cockeyed, perverse, depraved and corrupt our society has become in the past forty-to-fifty years.

    ROY MOORE is being challenged by the SAME warped MENTALITY that brought about the SALEM WITCH TRIALS that resulted in the EXECUTION of a goodly number of perfectly innocent members of that benighted community.

    You may remember that the SALEM EVENT –– surely one of the saddest episodes in our history –– was precipitated by the lunatic ravings of a small goup of hysterical ADOLESCENT GIRLS, who were heavily influenced by TITUBA –– a black woman who practiced VOODOO with apparent impunity in the midst of staid, superstition-bound Puritan Olde Salem.

    1. FT,
      I guess that Manson now knows Who God is and who Satan is -- so declared Mr. AOW and so declare I.

      Manson claimed to be both the God and the devil.

    2. I note this headline at Drudge:

      Tate sister says prayer for his soul...

      She's a better person than I am!

  7. MORE GOOD NEWS:


    GERMANY IN CRISIS: MERKEL UNABLE TO FORM NEW GOVT...

    FOURTH TERM IN DOUBT...


    Read it all at DRUDGE, if you want to be bothered.

    Wouldn't you just LOVE to see that stupid, stolid, dowdy, suicidally Islamophilic's grip on POWER "thaw, melt, and resolve itself into a dew?" –– to quote Hamlet.

    I know I, personally, would REJOICE at seeing that stubborn, globalist DIMWIT tossed into the DUMPSTER and carted away for good and all wooden shoe?
