Monday. Anutter week ahead to look forward to. I wonder if I will get any sleep this week. Took kitty in to get fixed and get his shots. They kept him Wednesday night. Thursday he got nipped, they wanted to keep him Thursday and give him back FRYday. I said ok. FRYday, I took him home and he howled to get out of the hot house and doggie cage. The gal over there at the Animal hospital said if I wanted I could keep him there all weekend. I took him back thinking he will get used to being inside which would make it easier for me to keep him inside at night. Things went downhill after that. Especially when the gal said "If we think that you are abusing the cat by letting him stay outside all night we can take him away from you." Now the doctor who started that animal hospital never said that to me before. I have had 3 other cats that were outdoor cats and lived that way just fine. When they got older they all stayed in. The cats stay outside in the day and come in at night I have never abused a cat. WHAT THE HELL? I take the cat to get fixed and all his shots and I'm abusing it if I let it outside? Now Belinda is mad at me too! I'm not even married to her. Who the HELL is the one being abused here? I am that's who! Because, besides this, Pooh Bear has been howling for Jo Bear to come home. He didn't like the cat before, now he loves him. Yes she changed his name again. And where's that friggin lobotomy I ordered?!!! That would fix all of this. I am hoping that I can pick up kitty tomorrow.
A reader commented on my comment on the Ped vs Motorist vs Bicyclist thread that "I think I'm tough.." Actually no I'm not tough; I'm fed up with everything getting run off the road by motorists is just one thing. There are otters here's just a few. Aggressive Panhandlers I really dislike them because many get a check and it usually goes for drugs and alcohol usually 2 days after an addict gets their check it's burned. An alcoholic usually makes it last a few days. Then out comes the gas can and the Sob Story, or they are really noisy "Going to the store are ya? Will I wish I could go to the store and get some food I'm starving." Even though they just ate at the shelter. After I spend my check on rent and bills the food I buy usually makes it 3 weeks into the month that is unless there is a power outage. Lately I have been doing a little better and Catholic Charities is always there to help. Sometimes I feel like carrying a frozen turkey leg on me for those panhandlers when they say "I sure wish I had something to eat." Give it to ‘em!
Drunks are another group of people I'm fed up with. "Loud Drunks" an explanation is really not necessary all of us have had experiences with "Loud Drunks" this is Santa Barbara and they go hand in hand with Aggressive Panhandlers, but I have loud drunks at home they follow me where ever I go. I think when I was a baby my parents had a "Drama Chip" implanted in me. People that think they are Dogs Gift to the world those Bright and Shining Stars that continually toot their own horn are very annoying. They usually make themselves known around Election Day as most are politicians. One more commercial and I'm going to take that frozen turkey leg and jam it! Then there's the rest Public Officials whom either take short cuts or don't do their jobs at all taking days off and driving their tax payer paid vehicles all over the place running personal errands. These people get government checks also and some do less work than people who receive disability. I'm not saying all government workers are lazy bums that get a check, but there are a few.
Child Molesters, Rapists, Woman and Child Abusers, Elder Abusers, these are people in my opinion that would make better fertilizer than they do people but I would not want them on my lawn. Drunk Drivers there are many, many, Drunk Drivers on the road and I'm fed up with all of them. Dog Forbid if someone should be crossing the street in a crosswalk in front of a Drunk Driver when no one's around the pedestrian better be able to run or jump out of the way because more than likely that is what they would have to do. A drunk or DUI driver thinks they are the only ones who have the right to be on the road like a motorist on steroids. Racism this really gets to me to constantly blame others for all the scrap that is going on in our town is not getting to the Fart of the matter, and it never will. It's just the same thing over and over again.
I want my Jo Bear back and so does Pooh Bear. Cats are good listeners and when I'm not writing I'm talking to the cats. I'm not abusing them. I feed them better food than I eat, get ‘em their shots, take care of them when they're sick. Spoil the HELL out of them. A lot of people put them down when they get sick. Not Me. I take them to the Doctor get ‘em well so they can listen to me a few more years they might need a little therapy but that's ok, Poor Cats.
Tomorrow would have been Brad's birthday. He died back in 2004. He was my best friend for 23 years. He had bone cancer his doctor would not prescribe him medical marijuana for pain, because he was afraid the government would take away his license to practice medicine. Just another one of those things I'm "Fed Up" over. I can't do anything about it but Rant and that is what I've been doing for years. Happy Birthday Brad, wherever you are, I love you.
Hair is your Scanner Reports, FRYday:
The Evening before FRYday Morning Thursday night a man called CHP to report that he was having an anxiety attack. He was pulled over at El Capitan and waiting for fire and medics to arrive but when they got there he was gone. Calling them back he was canceling stating that at the time of the 2nd call he was on Highway 101 Southbound at Los Carneros and he was OK Now. Will the dispatcher said that he sounded under the influence of something and he was refusing to pull over and he just disappeared after wasting the responder's time and taxpayer's money with his Namby Pamby Anxiety attack. The only description of this guy was that he was driving a Gold Toyota Camry another Law Breaker on the road.
