(Take a deep breath)

What a crappy week for news. So on the advice of a loyal reader, here's a brief pause from nuclear meltdowns, repression, republicans, wars, and everything else. I can take no credit for this: a friend found it on a site entitled simply "The Best Picture on the Internet." It's really quite hard to argue with that assessment.

What it means, I have no clue. It seems to be a gothic tail, er, tale. Wilted roses. A matching bag and dress. A cloudy full moon. The visage of a sage elder. Granny glasses. A fish on wheels. And of course, cats. The story kind of writes itself.

"It had been a dark and stormy night. Fluffy wasn't certain what she'd find as she paused by the vase of flowers that Tom had given her only a few short nights before. Oh the howling and caterwauling had been awful. Such a scene. But as she gazed over the threshhold she knew she had no choice. She remembered the wise words of her grandfather, Mr. Whiskers. "The untold want by life and land ne'er granted, Now voyager sail thou forth to seek and find. Meooooowwww." She grasped her fishy's leash and didn't look back...."


  1. Oh, Ish...it worked. I came to make a comment about 'something else' and suddenly have been overcome by a cute kitten walking its pet fish....

    You are a life saver.... manana...

    I (heart) you.

  2. Cat got your tongue eh? :) Gnight friend.

  3. OK, back to work... Things are very serious, and the first clue is when you aren't getting the straight story. Now is the time to open up all information sources and engage the brain to process the information coming in...

    Here is a good article on Huffington Post today :


    And here is a history lessons for those that don't remember:
