Parents will do everything to protect their children. Nowadays it appears that far too many of them don't want to protect their parents.

I think Paul Williams wrote that song. He was like five foot nothing and was so freaking talented! The royalties on just that song must have made him a millionaire.

Has photo friday devolved into a cute kitty blog?

I have an old Meiji tiger and all three cats take turns to sidle up. Sometimes they fight over it.

Sort of a self-portrait sitting on my car, circa 1973. This VW had a six volt battery and it was almost dead. I was too cheap to buy another one, and they were hard to find, so I had to park it on a hill and push start it. Eventually, I got another half-ass battery from a junkyard for $5 and it was strong enough to start the car.....sometimes.

She blasted my hand as I reached over to her on the bed to mess with her. Then when I was up cleaning my injuries, she stole my chair. :roll: Kinda an analogy to my treatment here at AS. :roll:

If that stuff was mulch, I could ship a hundred Radio Flyers' worth. It's a few decades of the disintegrating (leaves?) of those fucking bushes. They're tall as hell, maybe 14 feet. The far left one I've gotten to where I want. I hacked it back after trimming, pruning and sawing. Good thing I'm a real man™ and have tools. It's more combat than gardening.

After I'd gotten it fought back to what you see, I pushed out bucketsfull of the leaves that had accumulated in the V of the thousands of branches over the years. I used an old broom to swipe, punch and push out the accumulation. The very oldest matter was just grey dust.

Anyone know what these things are named? I need to make a bronze statue to commemorate their valiant defense of their territory. Luckily, I'm marginally more intelligent than they are, and am able to use tools because I own opposable thumbs.

I'm regaining lost territory.

My female cat did this. Natural born killer. She knows to slice the artery lengthwise. Harder to stitch; more lethal.

Brutal.

Sometimes mine does a swipe, but more often it's the Nuke™: the pull-in by the fronts, with a tearing kick-out by the rears. It would be a good shredded chicken process to make tacos. Thank god she doesn't ever drop the Tsar Bomba™ which is the Nuke™ + biting, which some cats do.
