Friday Morning Open Thread

I’m off for computer repairs so I thought I would leave this for you in case you get tired of talking about Flynn:

That’s the “I’m not moving, I’m pretty firm about this, and really there is nothing you can do about it even if you wanted to” face. And to be honest, what kind of monster would make her move?

    My ginger derp cat does the same thing in my bed. Sadly I have to move him to lay down, but he jist cuddles up next to me and goes back to sleep.

    He may be dumber then a bag of hammers but he’s the most affectionate cat I’ve ever known.

    She always reminds me of my grandparent’s dog from when I was a kid, Taja. Exact same coloring and rough breed mix, although Taj was about half Lily’s size. Sweet, if slightly neurotic little girl.

    I don’t make ’em move, I just sit real close if they’re where I want to sit. If they want to snuggle, fine. If they feel like they have to leave in a huff, not my problem.

    We had an active 60-pound yearling puppy visiting us with the crowds at Thanksgiving, and that has escalated my longing to have a dog in the house again. But I’m still determined to wait till the 16+ – year – old cat is gone. She doesn’t need that kind of stress.

    Cole has nonmatching sox, and another pair in his closet just like Harry Truman did.

    I’m assuming there are at least two words that could get her up: “walk” and “treat.”

    Treasury Secretary Mnuchin fails to deliver promised tax report
    Rachel Maddow shows Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s repeated claims that he had a hundred experts working on an assessment of the Republican tax bill, only to deliver nothing in time for the vote because reportedly there is nothing to deliver, no report was done.

    Per Drum and Corn, Republicans tried to suppress a Joint Committee analysis that shows the bill raises taxes for most Americans, but it leaked.

    I can get in touch with my inner monster quite easily when faced with an animal smaller than me.
