Have a fun Halloween!

GrannyJ sent us a story which goes very well with a Halloween theme. Thank you, GrannyJ.

Police work can be entertaining as well as dangerous.

Recently, a female sheriff's deputy arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year old white male, who was fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of a field at night.

The next day, at the Gwinnett County (GA) courthouse, Lawrence was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency and public intoxication.

The suspect explained that he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from a drinking session when he decided to stop. 

'You know how a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles, 
or at least I thought there was no one around' he stated.

Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need.

”Guess I was really into it, y'know?” he commented with evident embarrassment.

In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching sheriff's car and was unaware of his audience until Deputy Brenda Taylor approached him.

'It was an unusual situation, that's for sure,' said Deputy Taylor. 

'I walked up to Lawrence and he's just humping away at this pumpkin.'

Deputy Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence ...


'I said: 'Excuse me, sir, but do you realize that you're having sex with a pumpkin?' 

He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said:

'A pumpkin? Sh*t ... is it midnight already?'

[This story is not true, but the guy's comeback is very funny!]

It may be a pest, but there's beauty in all creatures

Amy sent us these pictures of snails taken by Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mischenko. It's so nice that Amy can see beauty in her old foes... Thank you, Amy!

Oops! Today's post is late!

We went shopping for food and it took much longer then we expected...   I hope the funny pictures make up for the delay.

Happy to scoop

Yesterday I said Pirate had finally used the litter tray and Lynn replied that I couldn't have predicted being happy to scoop the poop. Well, yesterday it was only pee... the real happiness came this morning. Pirate produced a respectable poo, the first since we brought him home on Wednesday!

Pirouette has been a bit weird, though. She won't be in the same room with him. Yesterday she approached him a few times, but only to sniff him and run away as fast as she can.

Pirate has been sleeping in the bathroom at night, but he prefers to stay in the kitchen during the day and next to us in the evening. Pirouette stays wherever he isn't! We're not experts in cat psychology, so any input from more seasoned cat owners is very welcome!

Here he is, chilling out in the kitchen (he's lying on the shaved leg):

Dramatic weather

View sent us this time-lapse video. It's quite impressive! Thank you, View.

Pirate update

Pirate is home, wearing the cone of shame, but he looks quite comfortable. Olivier let us pay in instalments, so we're not destitute! All is well, thankfully.

Here are some lovely cats to make us smile...
