Cat Sitting

Contributed by Milford Woods

My next door neighbor asked me to take care of her daughter’s cat while my neighbor went out of town. Obviously she does not know how much I cannot stand cats. She also has a dog, but she must have sent him off somewhere else. So I reluctantly said okay. Then I realized that the cat I would be taking care of does not even live with my neighbor because her daughter is married and has a house of her own. So she left me written instructions on how to get into her house.

First I had to unlock the door, and then go straight to the house alarm and put in the code to stop the alarm from going off. No pressure there! Then I just had to fill the food and water bowls set the alarm and leave. The first day went fine. The second day was a little different. I went in the kitchen to fill the bowls and noticed there were about a million ants swarming all through the food bowl and all over the kitchen floor.

This totally grossed me out. So I went outside and tossed all the food left in the bowl up into the woods. Then I had to find some bug spray to spray down all the ants. I filled the bowl with food and left it on the kitchen table. I figured the cat probably jumped up there all the time anyway. Thank goodness that was my last day to do in there. I can’t stand cats or ants.

I Love The Walking Dead

I love the TV show “The Walking Dead”. When I first heard about the show I wondered how good a show about zombies could be, after all zombies have been done to death (no pun intended). Well, from the very first show I could see where they were going and I liked what they were doing and it just kept getting better.

The show is based off of a graphic novel (comic book). I never read the graphic novel, but I would like to see it to see how it compares to the show. What makes the show so good is that fact that’s about more the people killing and trying to avoid zombies, it gets into the characters of the people themselves.

I don’t watch AMC much, but I am finding that they have some very good shows and “The Walking Dead” is one of them. And that says it all.

Will 12/21/2010 Be The End

The Mayan calendar ends at 12/21/2012 and there has been speculation that, that will be the day the world ends. One of the speculations is that the earth will stop rotating because of a solar flair from the sun that will super heat the earth’s core causing the earth crust to thin and so on and so on.

What is interesting to me is the weather we have had this year. We actually didn’t have a winter. It seems like the seasons may be going off and if that is the case maybe that’s why the Mayan calendar ends at 12/21/2012 because there will be a shift of the seasons.

Whatever the theory is we will know for sure 12/21/2012. And that says it all.
