Meet Zach - Samantha's New Cousin
Congrats to my sweet Sandra on her adoption of Zach, her new furry friend. Sandra patiently waited until she could provide a good home. Moreover, Zach's adoption provides automatic membership in The Scalawags, which may or may not be of use, but we all have black cats.
Samantha has not been told yet as she feels her Aunt Sandra belongs solely to her. I'll explain everything to her later this evening. I can't interrupt her right now. She's watching, "Little Mouse on The Prairie."
Zach is slowly adjusting to his new Mom and surroundings and I'm assuming he likes game shows as he has already left Sandra a parting gift. Litterbox 101 is his next priority.
I'm happy that Sandra finally has Zach. She'll take good care of him and i'm sure Zach will be good for her.
So, for all of my fantastic furry pet parents, this story is for you, as well.

Hillary Clinton recently visited the set of the hit ABC show "Scandal." Is that really the show you should be visiting right now? Why not drop by the set of "I Did Nothing Wrong," or maybe "There Was Nothing Illegal in Those Emails!"

Today's Horoscope: Pisces - February 24th: Now that you're finally getting over your weekend antics, I suggest that you maintain a low profile until all of the various social sites quit running those pictures that seemed funny at the time. Seriously, you're not the first to wear a lampshade as a hat.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: After hiring a beautiful new maid, a man was asked by his wife, "Did you have to hire Venus herself? Couldn't you have found some beefy, East European scrub woman who reeked of ammonia?"
Her husband replied, "Well, I asked for one, but it's an Olympic year. The agency was fresh out."
It was March 6, 1836. On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and rose from his bunk on the main floor of the Alamo. He then walked up to the observation post along the west wall of the fort. William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were already there, looking out over the top of the wall.
These three men gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving steadily toward them. With a puzzled look on his face, Crockett turned to Bowie and said, "Jim, are we having some landscaping done today?"
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: John met a woman while on vacation and fell head over heels in love with her. On the last night of his vacation, the two of them went to dinner and had a serious talk about how they would continue the relationship.
John said, "It's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I eat, sleep, think and breathe golf, so if that's a problem, you'd better say so now."
The woman says, "Well, as long as we're being honest with each other, here goes...I'm a hooker."
John was quiet for a moment, then he replied, "You know, it's probably because you're not keeping your left wrist straight on your follow-through."
Two guys from New Orleans were sitting around talking one afternoon. After a while the first fellow says to the second, "If I was to sneak over to your trailer Saturday and make love to your wife while you was off hunting and she got pregnant and had a baby, would that make us kin?"
The second fellow crooked his head sideways for a minute, scratched his head and squinted his eyes thinking real hard about the question. Finally, he says, "Well, I don't know about that, but it sure would make us even."
That's it for today, my little furballs. Remember, political correctness is a useless theorem that allows the few to endanger the many. It is only applicable when being polite to ugly babies, men and women. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
