Cats, tables and conversation....

Mom: Madi what do you think about this quote from Who's Kitten Who?

"No animal should ever jump up on the dining room furniture unless absolutely certain that she can hold hold her own in the conversation."~~Fran Lebowitz

Madi: No problem Mom you know I can talk the ears off cornstalks.
Mom: This is true.
Madi: I see from this article we have major trouble right here in River City.....
Mom: No Madi, River City is in Indiana were in North Carolina
Madi: Ok so what is our major trouble?
Mom: Madi the major trouble is with a Major who has been with the NC Highway Patrol with for 25+ years
Madi: Well Mom that doesn't sound like a problem in today economy, he should be happy he has a job.
Mom: Madi you are a wise kitty; however, he was not a wise man. He did something stupid now he doesn't have a job.
Madi: No more green paper for him then. AND he may not live with us. Tell me about it.
Mom: It all started last week. According to the article, he sent over 2,000 inappropriate text messages to a co-worker using a State owned Blackberry. Side note from Mom: the first article in the paper stated he sent 2,000 'text massages'!!! The paper needs a proof reader but that is another entire post for another day.

Madi: Oh my Cats that wears me out thinking about it. I bet his thumbs nearly fell off his hands

Mom: I don't know about his thumbs, but I'm pretty sure his brain must have fallen out of his head for him to do something this stupid.

Madi: You know it is times like this I'm glad I don't have thumbs. They can cause lots of problems.

Mom: and times like this make me want to say, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
Madi: Mom thank you for letting me contribute to this very controversial topic. I look forward to discussing more current events with you.

Mom: Sadly this is a very true and ongoing saga and unfortunately this man is one of several NCHP who are now jobless for various and sundry reasons. There is about to be some major house cleaning done to bring this very respected organization back to it's former glory.

Today's header picture was taken in May 2005 as we cruised down the Inside Passage in Alaska.

  3. Hi Madi & Mom,

    Madi, we are glad to see you are well versed in current events. It is sad to see stories like this in the news, my first thought is usually the same as yours but obviously they weren't thinking.

    Love the header photo, we would love to hear more about your cruise. My AK days were mostly inland, I've never seen the Inside Passage.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Judy and Cindi Lou

  6. I agree, some people in respected offices don't really think before they speak/act some times!

    Oh my, it was snowing when you took that gorgeous picture on your cruise!! That must have helped you feel like you were REALLY heading for Alaska!!
    Chin scratches for the Diva

    That was quite the conversation....

  8. Hmmm. I didn't think that photo probably looked a lot like North Carolina. Well, the State Trooper was dumb. Really dumb. It shows to go ya - humans really only have two things going for them. Big brains and opposable thumbs. I mean, they can't smell worth a darn. Their hearing is poor. No claws or fangs. This demonstrates that even the thumbs more trouble than they're worth without the brain.

  9. Oh, I luvs your header picture! It's SO Most Beautiful!

    And that man was REALLY crazy and stupid! What is up with humans sometimes? You're right, Madi. Sometimes thumbs (and peoples brains) can get you in troubles.

    Have a Most Happy Tuesday!

    Wiggles & WAgs,

  13. Beautiful picture.

    Sad. Why don't people understand that anything you type is logged. As well as any site you visit, etc. on and on and on.

    I do the internet monitoring at my work and surprise, surprise when I send somebody a report of what they've been looking at.......

  14. LMAO... this post is hilarious. Madi, you and your mom have some great conversations. I think you should get together with Oreo, Jimmy and I and we could solve ALL of the world's problems. :o)

    I LOVE that inside passage. Ahhh... it's like home sweet second home! ;o)

  17. It does boggle the mind, the things that beans does. We thinks all the tech makes things moves too fast so people not has time to thinks just act.

  18. Hi Madi- we're just 30 miles outside of DC, so we did get that 106 degree hit yesterday. Daddy just came back in and sais it is 101 out there now but the humidity is only 26% so the heat-index is likely to be around 103.
    We hopes you stays cool sweety, and don't mind the bitey (Daisy speak!) it happens to the best of us.

  19. hi Madi that picture is so cool. My babies like it hot and would need a sweater there. Our country cats don't know about texting but they do try to help with the typing on the computer but they don't spell so good.

  20. We are pleased to say we can't text and my human does all the typing. However, she has on occasion sent an e mail she regrets... (but never 2000)

    That is a lovely photo for your header. Our mum and dad cruised there in June 2005.

  23. Beautiful Header!

    We can't decide which is sadder, the shoddy proofreading or the actual texting/texters. At least you have an intelligent Human to talk to, Madi!

  24. Madi, we're impressed that you were able to hold your own in that conversation!!

    PS. River City...? It's in Iowa, not Indiana--if you mean the from the play "The Music Man" where they had trouble in River City, because T rhymes with P that stands for POOL! :)
