Today on my friend Sam's birthday, many things begin to fall and shatter inside this little brain of mine. I start to think, when did this happen to me? What I mean is... these small pockets of maturity that seem to be rearing up around me without me having to directly think about them. Strange things are afoot indeed. I find it difficult to scare the crap out of my kids because of lasting effects. LASTING EFFECTS!! what the hell are those. It could be that I have a cold but I think it's something more serious. I think I'm getting old.
Happy Birthday Sam

So the boys found some kittens that were left at a house down the street when the people moved out. I figure its already animal kingdom around here anyway...what the heck. Well the 89 year old lady next door has a few funny quirks.
1. She is crazy
2. She steals
3. She likes animals
She really is very sweet and I have not proven that she steals on purpose, although I am close to cracking the case. A few weeks ago my dog started growling at the side door. I look outside and the Old Lady is in our garden taking tomatoes. Then she scurries off around the fence and into her house. I think she is playing the "ohhh I'm soo old I don't know what I am doing" card. I bet she has cable and a flat screen.
Well anyways. She likes taking these kittens into her house. This was really bothering Ethan. The other day I was on my porch and she couldn't see me and I saw this unfold.
Old Lady: (While trying to take the cat out of my 7 year olds hands) "Do you want to hold the kitty?"
Ethan: "Mrs. Pillars it's our cat."
Old Lady: (Still pulling on the cat.)"Do you want to play with the kitty?"
Ethan: "Mrs Pillars thats our cat."
Ethan finally let the cat go and walked away while the old lady rubbed her face all over the cat, like a coke addict. Ethan walks up to the porch, right over to me and says. "Dad...you need to go set that old lady strait, she keeps taking my cat!"
So in my wisdom I said.."don't worry she'll be dead soon enough"
I didn't really tell him that,I only thought it. But the rest is true.
