Why People Don't Do Good Deeds Anymore...

Last night Brent took Sadie for a walk, and then told me that a cat was outside in the bushes...Already this was a stupid mistake...he knows can't tell me there is a furry fuzzy sad hungry animal outside and not expect me to go look for it...He said he tried to take it back with him but the second it saw Sadie it started hissing...Then on his way back, it started to follow...So once Sadie was back inside we went looking for the cat...I noticed a tail dart behind a dumpster. Brent walked over and the cat ran over towards him, and was fine with Brent picking it up...So we brought it in. We put Sadie in the bedroom and the cat ran all around, I gave it water and a hotdog...Then Sadie smelt the hotdog and the night went downhill from to sum it up here are the key points....

-Posted "found cat" ads all over the internet

- Named the cat Bill

- Bill was probably a girl, but it was to furry to tell and boy names are far better then girl names.

- Bill loved us, she was very friendly and made herself at home

- Bill liked playing in the moving boxes

-Sadie was pissed that she was stuck in the bedroom so I had to listen to her whine forever

-Bill decided to have diarrhea on my bathmat

-Locked Bill in the bathroom with doggy pee pads, blanket and a box

-Woke up to lotssss more cat crap all over the bathroom

-Bill decided to walk in it and then walk all over the floor, sink and toilet

-Decided that Bill might be sick, so she needed to go

-Bill enjoyed a car ride...Slept in the backseat

-Took her to the humane society and they CHARGED us to drop off a lost cat

-Then made us fill out paperwork...we had the cat for 15 hours what could we possibly know about the cat besides were we found it

-Come home...Sadie decided to open the bathroom door and touch everything the cat touched

-Spent an hour disinfecting the house and every surface

That's a lot of detail but my point is you do a nice thing like find a cat and then try to make sure its safe and you have to pay for it in more in one way. And now Brent wants to go back and get Bill if the owners don't claim it. My vote is NO. Traveling across the country with a dog is enough.

*Message to my dad...I deserve some brownie points for NOT bringing another animal home for once!*

A few pix...

I forgot to blog about these things a while back, so I am just posting the pix....They have gotten lost in the mix...

4th of July Madness

Most of you already know how excited I was for the 4th of July...I had my camera and tripod already. Read up on how to get good pix of fireworks. There was gonna be a big concert at the river; 100,000 people going, blah blah blah. It was gonna be big... I had to find a bag to stuff my tripod into cuz I heard that you couldn't bring them down there. I was determined to get good pix for once and a tripod is a MUST...

So we leave at 6:00pm and it starts raining. We go back upstairs, wait a while, grab an umbrella and leave...Still raining a bit. Since I am a foot shorter then Brent I couldn't share the umbrella, so he was stuck getting wet. We walk to the river and everyone is running away cuz its raining harder. So we literally walk down, and then walk right back.

Then at 8:00pm we decide to go down again (it stopped raining) so I would have time to set up my camera...fireworks were to start at 9:00pm...we walk outside at 8:04 and hear fireworks! I am furious. These idiots started them early cuz of the storm. So people are running to see them. TAKE A WILD GUESS WHAT HAPPENS...yep it starts raining...and no umbrella this time. Why I don't know...We get down there and its raining, a huge tree is in the way and we can barely see a thing!! I am furious!! I take out my camera ( no tripod, its too wet) try to snap a few pix. There is no point its such a mess outside you can't see a thing. I put my camera away, thank god I am a purse hoarder and last minute I grabbed my huge purse with a zipper and raincoat material BECAUSE IT STARTS POURING LIKE NO OTHER. Literally all the sudden it was like someone was holding your head under a water fall, and everyone starts screaming and running. Within one minute the hill we were on, just floods. Brent says "fuck this I am running back" I am so furious that I just stand there. And he runs off...I thought he was running towards the business doorways people were cramming into...So I stood there, I refused to run with the crowd. Within 2 minutes I am as soaked as if I were thrown into the river...My cell phone was soaked and dripping water. I try calling Brent and it doesn't even work. So I start to walk home and I am choking because the water is so fast that it just runs down your face and into your mouth. I get home, and have to beg some jerk out front to open the door for me cuz I have no keys. Brent is already inside, water was pouring out my shoes, and my ears were throbbing from all the water inside them. 4TH OF JULY HATES ME.

I have included a pic of the fantasic view I had of the fireworks, and the aftermath of me, you get the idea!


Have you ever seen anything so cute?
