Post 580: What’s up, kitties?

“When the cat’s away, the mice will play.” We know that, but what if adult supervision of kitties leaves for a little out-of-town business?

Andy's on the cat tree. Nothing suspicious there. Hmm.

Andy’s on the cat tree. Nothing suspicious there. Hmm….though he does look guilty.

What about Dougy? Where’s Dougy? He’s the naughty one. Andy’s a good boy.

There's that little rascal Dougy! What's he up to now?

Oh, a couple envelopes fell on the floor instead of into the trash when I “read” my mail today. Dougy wants to be the first kitty to cover them, claim them as Dougylandia, “Off Limits to Andys”. Maybe that’s why Andy looks that way. He’s not guilty, he’s abused by his brother, who won’t share with him.

Post 579: recall

I have a recall on my car to tend to today, one that shouldn’t involve me since I just keep a house key and the fob that opens the car door locks and so on on the key ring. Since I have to drive out of town to get it looked at and fixed, there goes my morning.

"We're all going to die!"

“We’re all going to die!”

Oh, we might die if we hang crap from our key ring other than the fob that opens door locks and so on. Well, I have a fob and a house key. If GM ignition locks are so fragile they can’t handle that extra weight, then, we are all going to die! If that’s the case, they need to get into a different line of work.

I use the regulation key ring, of course, the one that GM provided with the fob. I think I’m OK.

A simple fix.

A simple fix.

Won’t take but 15 minutes to do. Oh, and they’ll probably need to have it longer than that, depending on whatever. Of course, that excludes the 107 mile round trip to Scottsbluff, roughly two hours of driving. Good thing they recently remodelled their waiting room, and it is quite pleasant.

I’ve had this car since new in 2009, and this is the first recall. I guess that is a good thing. I have better things to do with my time.
