An epiphany: In which Gray Cat becomes an indoor cat — for life

V

Emphasis on "for life."

Long story short: After spending 2.5 hours searching for Gray Cat Thursday afternoon after I was packed and ready to drive to Pittsburgh for this past weekend's World Tour 2012 stop in Yinzerville, the penny dropped.

Gray Cat has spent her last day outdoors wandering the fields and forests of my Podunk town's outskirts.

Done and dusted.

She doesn't realize it yet — I haven't yet broken the news to her, only having arrived back home 10 minute ago — but tomorrow we'll be having a head-to-head about my decision.

I am very happy about this development for any number of reasons, all of which which will be laid out here in the near future.

Retractable Speed Bumps

Slow-down-and-t

"If a vehicle is following the speed limit, the speed bump stays retracted and allows the car to continue without stopping."

What took so long?

Which browser are you using?

Mmm

Well?

"Browsers are free and easy to install."

I read that in a magazine.

Wait a sec... what's that music I'm hearing?
