She had heard a rock being thrown at her door and went outside to find a miniature horse that someone had tied to the gate. Must have given her a fright,the last time she saw a horse it had taken off on her and she fell and broke her hip,at least this one was to small to do any damage,not that she would have climbed aboard.......I don't think......there was the incident with the skateboard a couple of months ago.She decided at 21 yrs of age to try skateboarding,I'm pretty sure this lasted all of 5 minutes... before she came a cropper and broke her elbow. But..I digress...back to the horsey.About an hour later she rang again(lucky I'm a night owl up reading blogs) ' 2 drunks just stole the stolen horse!!!'
It's a very small town, a horse,even a miniature one will be noticed quickly so I'm sure it will be back with it's owner tomorrow some time. Horses and cars are alike,very recognisable,there's zero in the way of car theft here..I mean where are you going to drive it?A friends? The conversation would be something along the lines of "why are you driving your cousins' girlfriends' sister in laws' car?"
It was a long time ago.
I set fire to the cats tail.
Not on purpose,but by the look Kitty gave me I don't think she believed me. I was having a leisurely cigarette when the phone rang,so i bent down to put it out in the ashtray,I must have got up suddenly because the cat got a fright and dashed in front of me at the same time. I headed in the front door and she dashed in ahead of me.
I could smell something .
yep definately smoke.
As i headed through the house the youngest sang out "why is there smoke coming from the cat??? WTF??? sure enough there was smoke pouring from her tail so i grabbed her and dunked her tail in the cats water. There was a phhssssss sound .....and a dreadful smell.
Cats hair smells remarkably like human hair when burnt. Interesting fact.
