Bling for the Butt!

This is sold as a gag gift for cat owners.  It's been my experience with cats is that they are not loath to show their butts.  Imagine this scenario: You're wakening from being asleep.  You slowly wake up, and  the first goddam thing you see is your cat's butt!  It sort of shakes your confidence and you expect that the day is not going to get any better. 

But here's a product to spare you that psychological trauma:  https//

Your cat will enjoy this new look too!

How I Spent the Summer of '68

I worked as a counselor in a summer camp near Mentone, Alabama. It was fun; my last howl before adulthood.  Here's the camp song:

"We welcome you to Ponderosa,
We're mighty glad you're here!
We'll send the air reverberating,
With a mighty cheer!
We'll sing you in, we'll sing you out,
For you we'll raise a mighty shout!
Hail hail, the gang's all here,
And we welcome you to Ponderosa!"

A few years before I was operating a radiopositioning transmitter in Alaska alone. Being a counselor was more fun, with the kids and other counselors.  Kudos to Mike and Charlie, admirable psychologists and camp co-directors.
