It's Friday

Looked out the window, and ooh, there's ice on my car! Won't complain too loudly about the cold because weather has been freaky wonderful. Anyway, on to my post which, if I'm honest, is much like one of my stories--I don't know where it's going until one of the characters whisks me away into their world.
My morning starts with coffee, turning on the computer, and reading the Yahoo News. Well, it was with a snorting laugh when the first thing I read was someone had paid $200,000 plus for a purse. What!&%?$ That's about all I care to say about that.
Went from laughing to Oh Lord because in Massachusetts they want to jail an 80 year old woman for feeding ducks. No problem there. By the time the wheels of justice grind slowly around, she'll probably not be available for sentencing. Wonder if they'll speed up the "due process"? After all, a criminal like her should be gotten off the shores...err, streets quickly. Who knows who she'll feed next!

Then there's the orange tabby in a non-profit shelter in Milwaukee with 26 toes. Seems he's helped boost donations at the shelter that takes in animals so they're not euthanized. The mall where they operated was doubling the rent. Now, thanks to interest in the unique and pretty kitty, people have made so many $26 donations--$1 per toe--that they've raised enough to buy their own building! With the economy as it is, wonder who the mall will rent the space to now? Good luck with that!

Ah, well, it's Friday

Can you imagine all 26 of the kitty's toes making bread on your leg as you pet her? LOL About the duck lady...we have a similar law here with lake ducks and seagulls at the beach. Nobody has been arrested though! Thanks for the grins and giggles this morning.
