Very well done!

One of my aunts had a kitten that liked to chew on electrical cords. No, it did not end well for the kitten.

Whoops, you'd think someone would have warned him.

Welcome back, hope you had a good time.

Empress Bee (of the high sea) said...

i think that would send him running! ha!

Jim said...

The only better bang for Collide would have been if he had been riding on a balloon. Good story!

I read of your train jaunt. Did it end in Birmingham? How often to you go over to the Isle of Man? My mother's family was from there, Corkill family. We have visited IOM once.

cats have no common sense. My gf's cat will often sit on the game board in the middle of a board game.

Indeed Cloudia LOL

Yes wouldn't you Valerie. Thanks we did have a good time and I'll be blogging about it eventually.

Thanks Jim. The train ride was from Brignorth to Kidderminster. I haven't been to the IOM since I was 16.

Well it did go with a bang Maggie :)

Glad you like it Anthony :)

Ron said... CLEVER!

Reminded me of a time when one of my cats was playing with a balloon and punctured it with his claw....


It was so funny to watch him fly 10 feet in the air and then run under the couch to hide!

Great one, m'dear!

Have a wonderful Monday!
