Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Cats & Tractors

Sometimes the cats have big plans:

Chloe: Hey, Sherman, do you know how to start this thing?
Sherman: You can't do it by sitting on the tire? Don't start it until I finish inspecting the bush-hog.

Chloe: Hey Sherm, where are you going?

Sherman: Gotta see about unloading this cart.

Chloe: Well, if you aren't gonna help me start the tractor, I'm quitting.

Sherman: OK, I'm back. Chloe, where are you?
Spotz: She left. But I'll help. You could dump the small cart into this bigger cart. . . .

Sherman: That could work.

Chloe: I'll just supervise from up here.

Sherman: Spotz, after we dump the little cart in here, we can haul this big cart away with the tractor. 

Sherman: Uh-oh. Mom's here. I just remembered I was supposed to be on rodent patrol.

Twiggy: Spotz! Sherman! You kids stop fooling around and get back to the barn.

Spotz: We can use the tractor to scoop what's in the small cart to the bigger cart?

Spotz: OK, gotta be a way to start this thing. . . . Let me check that cart one more time.

Twiggy:  Spotz, get out of the cart. You and your brother are supposed to be doing barn work!

Spotz: Maybe my idea isn't going to work. Let's break for lunch before we go back to the barn.

I love the cat pics, especially the ones with Spotz. He reminds me of my Patches.
