The Cat And The Mouse

"Why isn't my mouse working?"

Do computers drive you crazy at times.  The hardware.  The Software.  The Tech Support.  The BUGS! Then you reboot.  You even try a system restore.  You get so frustrated you start to read the HELP files to try to figure out the answer to your problem.

Of course, the biggest problem is trying to navigate with just your keyboard.  You rely on your mouse.  You use it for all your surfing, click, click, double-click . . . And then you have no mouse. It's not just creating ERROR MESSAGES.  It's not even attached.  It was there the last time you used your computer.  After all, who would take your mouse, what could they do with it? . .

Funny Cat Quotes

"I am not lazy, I just like to rest before I get tired."

"Play with the string. Yawn. Nap. Drop to the floor immediately upon entering a sunbeam. Nap. Leave a dead mouse at my person's feet. Nap. Hmmm, what else is on my agenda for today?  Oh yeah, scatter the dog's kibble."  :)

"If you hold a cat by the tail, you learn things you cannot learn any other way." ~ Mark Twain.

Lucky Saucer

In front of the local butcher's, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer.  The saucer, he realized with a start, was a rare and precious piece of pottery.  It was, in fact, a collector's item.

He strolled into the store and offered two pounds for the cat. 'He's not for sale', said the butcher.

'Look', said the collector', that moggy is dirty and scabby, but I'm an eccentric. I prefer cats that way. I'll raise my offer to ten pounds'.  'It's a deal', said the proprietor, and pocketed the ten immediately.

'For that amount of money I'm sure you won't mind throwing in the saucer', said the connoisseur', 'The kitten seems so happy drinking from it.'

'I can't do that', said the butcher firmly, 'That's my lucky saucer. From that saucer, so far this week, I've sold 18 cats.'
