One More Reason Why I Love My Dad

I dropped in to visit my parents today. As I was preparing to leave I heard my dad muttering something and my mom asking him to repeat himself.

“I’m talking to the cat,” he said. “We’re working on a shopping list together.”

He then sat back and slid the pad of paper and pen across the table.

Here is his list:

  1. Poison for the cat
  2. Wire to tie the cat’s paws
  3. Plastic bags for cat carcass
  4. Hymn book for service

    Now, I have issue with number 2. What self-respecting cat would sit still long enough to have his/her paws wired? You might want to ask him about that.

    And does he have a hymn book or will he need to “borrow” one from a church somewhere?

    Great sense ‘o humor, your dad. You too. 8).

    You’re right about #2. I don’t know any cat willing to sit still when required.He is a funny guy my dad…

    Howling! I love your dad already! What a guy! By the way, I shared your post with Roxy and she’s under the impression she and your father would be great friends. He does like dogs, right? :)
