    Harve, if trees weren't invented yet, where did you get the wooden club to swat the dinosaurs with?

    The tree just hadn't finished licking the bones. They always throw the bones away when done.

    And, again, that is another reason why Harve invented them...



    I was on another hill when Harve invented that tree. I thought it was a good idea...

    I said, "Harve... that is a good idea."

    But I didn't agree with him on everything.

    Harve... you got do do something about that cat thing...

    What are they good for? You can't herd them... you can't use them for food, they can't pull a wagon or plow and they like to climb trees...


    Harve... you're a genius... cats are tree food.



    You guys are catching on... stick around, lots of history lessons for all...

    The cats have already learned to stay OFF of Mama's kitchen counters! It only took turning that mean machine on twice to do it, too.

    p.s. Of course, the dog has learned that sound usually means some kind of bread or cake and that he might get a tiny piece later.

    Two more weeks until the Bassmaster's Classic in Birmingham!

    Unfortunately it was a vehicle that got her one night.......

    At least when she did singe her whiskers she didn't run through the house.....that would have been BAD!

    Ran a Kitchen Fire some years back where a Cat walked on some vertical push buttons and turned a burner on. The burner happened to have a empty pan on it, and a Plastic Collander was on the pan. Small Fire from the Plastic thing ran up into the Cabinets. Smoke detector was heard by a neighbor, we hit it quick, small fire to clean up. Homeowner arrived as we were finishing up, and in the conversation he mentioned that the Cat had turned a burner on a couple of times before.............

    I worked a call many years back where a microwave had caught on fire.

    Upon arrival, our first guys in found the homeowner standing in the kitchen spraying water into an open microwave with the sink hose. The microwave was still plugged in and was definitely on fire, along with a upper cabinet.

    After our guys knocked the fire out, they picked up the microwave and took it out to the front yard. They asked the homeowner what he had tried to cook.

    He told them that his kid had put the pet baby ferret in the microwave.



    Well it didn't look like a ferret, but it was still a bit fuzzy. And well done.





    After that we nick-named the guys that handle kitchen fires - the Ferret Crew.

    Individually, they are Ferreteers.

    And the job they do is Ferret Out the fire.


    When I moved to another department a few years later, I told my crew we were going on a ferret hunt. They had no clue what I was talking about.

    This is what happens when you insist on buying the "cheap" cat food. The homeowner should consider it a warning. It is always sad when cats turn to arson just to get attention.
