Sorry to hear your cat passed away. When you are ready O suggest a yoing cat that you can raise for many more years.<quoted text>
People will find a way to kill, no matter what Spook. I will say, this about what happened the other day. If I had a daughter just 9 years old, I don't think I would be teaching her how to use a machine gun just yet.
It is like Farmers long ago, they would take their tractors. Hook them to a log, or something heavy, next thing you would hear. Old Joe was pulling a heavy load. The tractor flipped over backward. OOPS Old Joe got killed. They finally learned after several got killed, tractors will flip over backward, and they will turn over too.
I can remember my dad telling me, about this fellow with an old hay baler, you know the kind that it took two, one on each side wiring the bales. You may have seen those old balers that had the Wisconsin 4 cylinder engine. The big New Holland wire bales, that had I will call a plunger mashing the hay into the bale chamber. Guess what? He had a ten year old kid standing up on the baler. He stopped, down goes the kid, and 5 pieces later, they found the kid in a bale of hay. It is called common sense. Or in that case no sense.
Remember the fellow that decided he was going to get out of his car during a race and Tony Stewart drove right over him? Some people have to live and learn. Some do, some don't Spook.
Like the story of old, you have heard, my Dad never locked up his guns. Some loaded some not. But kids obeyed their parents in those days. If they were told something they did it, if not? Well, it was a whipping, you soon did not forget. Today is is merely words of TIME OUT. Spare the rod and spoil the child. We live in a different world today Spook. A dangerous world, things are getting worse, and worse.
So much talk about Chicago killings, it is Street Gangs, shooting Street Gangs, over dope, Up in Cincinnati, there are parts there more dangerous than Baghdad, Iraq. The Police don't patrol it, just let them kill each other. Go retrieve the body, when one hoodlum, kills another. Now and then someone is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Jesse Jackson, nor Rev. Al ever come do they? Nor does the President say a word. It is out of control. America is one dangerous place anymore. Here in the area I live, you mess around with your nose in the wrong place. You will go to another place in a body bag. An old man in his 80's heard someone knock on his front door early one morning. They were planning on a robbery, when he did not answer. So they went to the back door. They kicked in the door, he shot both with a .357, I can tell you, it plumb ruined their morning.
By the way?
Black Boy passed on --- a few days ago. He was going on 18. Kidney failure got him. He quit eating, and just like an old man, he layed down, and his old ticker finally stopped. He could not jump in my lap. But he would at the last, try to walk, then rest, try again. Then I would go get him. He liked everyone, he was a great cat, and he is missed.
I have been around a lot of animals in my life. I saw six cows (1300-1400 lb.) die in seconds one time, from a short in a electric supplement feeder. Saw them that were killed by lightening. Saw them die, just like humans, with the same things that kill us. Each animal different, each with its own personality. Some good, some mean as Hell. Take Care Spook and be Careful
I have seen those balers. I think they werre originally powered by steam engines. Like threshing machines moved from farm in the earliest use.
