You actually wasted an entire box of sugar high on a tuxedo cat? I might give the hound dog one, but only after he'd performed a command correctly (From our Obedience Class: "The Five Ways To Motivate A Dog: Food, Force, Praise, Pet, Toy").

Actually, there are no peeps around here this year; I'll have to check the stores for clearance sales to get my fix.

Better his waist than mine.

He wrenched off and chewed (with his mouth open) one head in a predatory frenzy; he's good for another year, too. Remember the lab experiments in the Peep Research link? Well, there *is* a common household product which seriously compromises the Peep glycodermis: cat spit.

Seriously, nothing fazes Dom the Danger Cat, no matter what the experts will try to tell you...

Aye, they look right sinister, they do.

"A waist is a terrible thing to mind."

Besides, Met Foreman needs a job to do ...

As cats go he looks like a Dom Good one. A friend back in high school had a Tuxedo cat named Puddy ("I tawt I taw a Puddy Tat!"). He used to leave the dormer window in his bedroom open so the cat could climb up a tree and trot across the roof to get back in (or reverse it's way to go back out).

Then there were my roommates cats, Cheshire Cat and The Gray Mouser, who had white hair with black tips. He didn't get either one of them fixed until too late. I know from experience that there is nothing funkier than Tomcat anger (not anger really, but think of a synonym for angered without the past tense ending and the word off attached to it; alas, the Profanity Filter is doing what it gets paid to do: forcing us to use euphemisms). Let's just say, as the English do, that Mouser spent a penny on one of the volumes in Mark Twain's Author's Standard Edition set from the early 1900s. The book did survive. So did the cat. Barely. And only because Twain loved cats.

:evil:

Mmmm, I see, the color *is* a bit off. Although I have colored his paws with 'permanent' water-based magic markers before, so you just never know...

I just learned of another seasonal delicacy: Sm'eeps.
Like S'mores, only Peep-based. The horror. The Horror.

Time to put the Sacred Peep headdress in mothballs until next spring, and retire this as well:

Time to let Col. Donovan rest:

"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies."
-- William J. ("Wild Bill") Donovan


and honor our soldiers:

Not the reporter who gives us freedom of the press nor the poet who gives us freedom of speech nor the politicians that ensure our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness but the Soldier who salutes & serves 'neath the flag o'er his coffin.



The original was too long to fit in a Signature so I had to combine four sentences into one, add some abbreviations, and do a bit more editing.

I like that quote a lot, how did you manage to get the whole thing in your taglines?

Trial and error. Here's the original:

It's the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It's the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.

It's the Soldier, not the politicians
That ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It's the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.


You can see where I had to combine, re-write, and abbreviate. My signature is 253 characters if I counted correctly, so it seems that a signature is probably limited to 255 characters, a standard length for a text string. The original text is close to 330 characters including newline characters.

It's appended to a longer item called "The Final Inspection" about a Marine standing inspection before God, which I keep it as a "starred" item in my GMail for quick retrieval.

Drop me an EMail at my AlphaDictionary Username at Google Mail with the standard Commercial domain name suffix.

I have found another good quotation, though this one was good, it's still a bit long for a signature:

Not the reporter who gives us freedom of the press nor the poet who gives us freedom of speech nor the politicians that ensure our right to Life Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness but the Soldier who salutes & serves the flag that'll drape his coffin

Back for the first time in a while--it's time to retire the tagline--

"Having abandoned my search for truth I am now looking for a good fantasy"

And go with the new...

I retired the Jefferson line about big government being big enough to give you all you want can take all you have.

I feel this is closeer to today's realities.

It's been a while since I updated my old tagline:

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.”
-- William Pitt the Younger


Time for a change in tune with the times:

Death to every foe and traitor. Onward, strike the marching tune
And hurrah me boys for freedom, it's the rising of the moon.
