    Then stay off the rocks.
    You can twist things up with just the vehicle weight on those things.

    "Cat like reflexes?"
    As in "Out the window in a flash if things go wrong"?

    No, as in out the back trying to save the beer . There are priorities, you can always rebuild but you can't put the beer back into the can.

    Saving the beer is man like reflexes. It comes naturally. A small kid might take precedence over the beer, but not much else does.
    Back in the mid 70's, when I was a drum and sound roadie I pulled the loaded truck away from a gig in Mountain View, headed to Oakland. Right as I started moving I realized that my beer wasn't with me, it was on the back bumper of the truck.
    That half can of beer was still on the bumper when I got to Oakland. The band members riding in the back with the equipment said it was the smoothest ride home they had ever had.
    I wasn't thinking of them, I was taking care of what was important.

    Those wouldn't be the ones I'd say...I'd say they look like the dead eyes in the EC Comics that were also published by the Mad magazine publishers...they used to really creep me out!

    I think this might calm Cindy down:

    1. The pic reminded me of being a kid and playing with the cool toy cars my brother used to get. My dolls and dollhouses were boring.

    3. okay, I'm calm. Kinda.

    1) If Mattel had been smart in the '60s, the Barbie line would been called 'Action Figures' also.

    Fake news. Everyone knows, 'the cat's in the kettle' in North Korea. Along with dogs, rats, woodchucks, etc.

    Don't deny it, you know a cat would do it.

    That is why they torture small animals, often for hours, before eating them.

    Disclaimer.
    I do have a cat. When some heroin dealers were busted near my shop their kitten managed to hide during the raid and got trapped in the house. After 5 days of no one coming to get it, I went in and took it out. 4-1/2 weeks later the gal bailed out and showed up looking for it.
    The thing acts like it likes me, but I know that is only because I feed it.

    Talk to that kitty Ribald. Most of them can develop the vocabulary recognition similar to a three or four year old human. They also share most of the same problems a child faces healthwise. If you care about it at all take it in to a vet who can check it out thoroughly and give it the necessary immune shots just like a child. Got 47 here on the farm, all spayed or neutered, all know their own name and come on call. Don't de-claw your cat if it get's to go outside, that would be like taking your pistol away from you. If you treat your cat civily it will return many years of lovin' in return. Got 13 in my computer room as I type intently watching Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. Go figure ? I still can't teach the Hemingway cats who have thumbs to build carburetors though.

    Ya gotta remember--a thousand chimps on a thousand typewriters still will not produce a readable novel. And I have always believed that a cat chooses you.
