The Dog Doesn’t Die

Book reviews & random thoughts

Pigs, Baseball Players, and Cats

We need a break from the book reviews. So here is a video about Tammy Hann Harlan, the Appalachian Pig Lady. I’m privileged to call her my friend.

These college baseball players had a dance-off at a tournament during a rain delay, and it’s pretty funny. It starts off slow, but I was laughing out loud by the middle. Never underestimate the capacity of young guys to be goofy.

And, from my own computer archives, here are some sayings about cats:

“There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.” _Anonymous

“Cats are smarter than dogs. You can’t get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.” _ Jeff Valdez

 “In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.” _ English proverb

 “One cat just leads to another.” _ Ernest Hemingway

 “Dogs come when they’re called; cats take a message and get back to you later.” _ Mary Bly

 “Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.” _ Joseph Wood Krutch

 “People that hate cats, will come back as mice in their next life.” _ Faith Resnick

“I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.” _ Hippolyte Taine

 “There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.” _ Albert Schweitzer

 “The cat has too much spirit to have no heart.” _ Ernest Menaul

 “Time spent with cats is never wasted.” _ Colette

 “Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.” _ Missy Dizick

 “You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats.” _ Colonial American proverb

 “Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.” _ Joseph Wood Krutch

 “Cats aren’t clean, they’re just covered with cat spit.” _ John S. Nichols

Lastly, some business: For the rest of this month, my blogging will not occur on anything resembling a regular schedule. In July, I will likely go back to my usual Wednesday and Saturday postings.
