The Cat Ain't Stupid

Today was pretty again but it's getting colder. That wind was really blowing too. I put gas in the car and it was so cold standing there with that wind whipping around. I tried getting on all sides of the pump to get shielded from the wind but there was nowhere I could escape. Thankfully my car didn't need too much gas. I'm off tomorrow for a day trip to Ohio. I have someone to stay with my husband. Two of my brothers are going with me. That way I won't have to drive, but we will take my car. My brother will drive. Then I can sit in the back seat and whomp him on the head if he gets too speedy, which he probably will! I'm only kidding. He's a good driver but he has a few speeding tickets under his belt. He has to do so much driving though that I'm not surprised. Anyway, we are going to see my Aunt and Uncle who are both in their 80's and not doing so well. My Uncle fell last Sunday and broke his pelvis, so he's in the hospital in horrible pain. He was the one taking care of her. So now her kids stay with her around the clock. I've been wanting to go up there so I'm glad we are finally doing it. Sometimes we put things off until it's too late. I didn't want that to happen. It will be a change for me to get away for a whole day!!

Here's a joke for everyone;

Cat Hating Husband

A man hated his wife's cat and he decided to get rid of it. He drove 20 blocks away from home and dropped the cat there. The cat was already walking up the driveway when he approached his home.
The next day, he decided to drop the cat 40 blocks away but the same thing happened.
He kept on increasing the number of blocks but the cat kept on coming home before him. At last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right and so on until he reached what he thought was a perfect spot and dropped the cat there.
Hours later, the man calls his wife at home and asked her, "Jen is the cat there?" "Yes, why do you ask?" answered the wife. Frustrated the man said, "Put that cat on the phone, I'm lost and I need directions."

That reminds me of my dad who in huis past 80s also trip over a cord of an electric fan and fell on the floor which broke one of his pelvic bones and gave him excruciating pain as it as pressing on one of his nerves. They did surgery on him putting a metal bracket or brace which I think didn't do him any good because he never walked after that.
But without it he would be suffering excruciating pains though.

Cute cat joke!

Enjoy your trip and time with your relatives. I hope your uncle recovers soon. Falls like that are really terrible for the elderly. I'm sure they will be grateful for your visit.

Hi Rachel. I hope you had a good trip! I hope that the doctors find a way to alleviate your uncle's pain. It's no fun getting older. Love the joke! I am a cat fan, but unfortunately I'm allergic. Have a great weekend!

LOL, LOL, LOL...very very cute joke!

I hope your day trip is a lovely one and that your visit with your relatives is good for everyone! It must be fun to spend time with your brothers like that...does it remind you of when you were all young and liked to be playful with one another?
Hope you have a very safe trip and tell that brother of yours to s-l-o-w- down, if needed! (lol)
