The old dummy. [Christian Material]greenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
The old dummy was layin in the middle of the livin room floor takin a "cat nap" this mornin. Wasn't very long till the "gremlins of sleep" reared their ugly heads and the ramifications of that visit were most un-enjoyable. Scratchin, runnin in place, growlin and rollin around a mite. Made me pick up my feet from the floor and recline to get out of harms way. Didn't last too long until those dreaded gremlins woke up the old dummy. Then it was all the hollerin to contend with. Hunger drove the "thing" forth! The "thing" or "old dummy" is Calvin the cat==Lil Dumplin's "fixed" female cat. About as worthless as can be but still is a goodly amount of company when Lil Dumplin is gone. Right now the old dummy is settin at the back door hollerin to go out. I'll get around to it after while I guess. She/it is gonna holler anyhow --does all the time just for attention.
Another beautiful day in store it looks like. Temps are supposed to be in the low 80 but we'll see. I ain't gonna turn off the a/c just yet. Some things old fat men require-ya'll know!

I'm thinking Grandpa Hoot, that you give Calvin quite a bit of attention when Lil Dumplin is not around! In fact, my guess is, if anything happened to Calvin, you would be as unhappy as Lil Dumplin?!? God bless you.
