Strange world and my little slice of it.

Some women who lives nearby was found with 117 cats in her house. She was a kindhearted person who got in over her head. (She was hospitalized under Florida's involuntary mental health committment law, the Baker Act.) I'm all for helping stray animals, but I thought 2 cats was a lot to deal with, 117 really is nuts if you ask me.
A friend of mine was killed recently when he was hit by a car in Gainesville. He was an officer with the police deparment working a detail after the party they had after winning the NCAA game earlier in the week. His son is a USF student. We were not best buddies, but I knew him from when I was a cop. He was hit by a drunk 21 year old party goer. Basketball and drink driving. National pastimes.
Another drunk driving death was Robert Clark, the director of the movie "A Christmas Story" my father loved that movie. I've watched it every year since he died and I think I laugh harder each year. I remember trying to find a leg lamp online to give my dad... never found one.
More on the continuing saga of Baxter the cat and the tainted cat food. I am assembling all of Baxter's medical records (yes I am that uptight that I keep the cat's medical records @ home - really.) So I had to get results of her cat scan. If you are interested you can see it here. (If you get a forbidden error just reload. I have no idea why it is doing that.)
So hug your loved ones, heck hug those who don't like you it keeps them confused. Whomever said there are five senses forgot to include humor.
