What was I thinking?

Poor kitty! He never cleans his back, maybe because he's a tad over weight. And I was telling my husband how easy it would be to just bring him in the shower (not on!) with me with a teeny bit of water and a cup and shampoo him really quick. Hey! They do it for cat shows! So now Mocha's pissed and I'm bleeding!

See those claws! He's so good natured. He never uses them. He lets the kids drag him around, Phil torments, I mean plays with him. He even puts up with an occasional visit from my parents' dog. He does not, however, like water. So now I know.

Look at that face! He hates me. Poor kitty! But now he smells like baby shampoo! And he's actually cleaning his back! Which was, by the way, the ONLY thing I managed to wash. And only with my husbands help and a lot of sweet talking and promises of treats. I did mention this cat is mellow, right? He lays back and lets my husband clip his claws like he's at a spa getting a manicure. But I guess even he has his limits! Just thought I'd share. Now I'm off to get some peroxide!

Did I mention I suck at keeping up on things! Ok, just plan to expect 6 or so posts a year. And they will just happen to be about random things that have caught my interest at the time.

So, I've been tagged. And because it involves books, it interests me. Ok, that makes me sound like a complete bookworm. I do have a social life, just sometimes the book prevails! Anyway...

The rules:
Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
Flip to page 123.
Find the first 5 sentences.
Post the next 3 sentences.
Tag 5 people.

Ok, my current read is Ken Follett's "World Without End" (Book without end! But, man, it's good!) :

"Ah, but you didn't have to get the cow past me and these people."

Gwenda's heart leaped with hope. She was not sure how many of the bystanders supported her, but if it came to a fight they were more likely to side with Madge, who was a townswoman, than Sim, an outsider.

So, I promise, the book isn't about cows!

If you're reading this, you're tagged!
