A Lost Family Member

It has been a hectic week so far. Yes, I realize its only Tuesday but weeks start off slow or fast, no in-between. While I welcome the change of pace from last Monday, these last 2 days have left a mark.

During our water heater replacement, it became apparent that a family member had left Dazd Compound, errr Central. This family member didn't leave because of work nor out of fear. The member left for reasons and destinations unknown. We contacted the proper authorities who put out an APB. We distributed flyers at the corner stores and local gas stations. We contacted a local search team to assist us if necessary. I had just started to organize a volunteer search effort along with local authorities.

Then the call came...the call we all dreaded yet we knew it might relieve or anxiety. Bringing our horror to a closure. The phone rang for a second time...then a third...everyone was waiting for my reaction. I felt frozen in time as my heart raced faster. I quickly grabbed a nitro pill in case another heart attack set in. I catiously picked up the phone and dryly said, "Hello?"

There was a gruff voice on the other end. "Sir, we've found your family member. He was located approximately 2 miles from your residence", the gruff Officer proclaimed. He continued, "After we woke him from slumber we had to restrain him." Now this didn't surprise me at all...

So when I told the family the glorious news, they were both happy, excited and hesitant at the same time. We had no idea what had happened and quite frankly, I was too scared to ask. When the gruff Officer arrived, "Sir, you owe $16.49 plus $50 for transport fees." I gasped and grudingly paid the gruff Officer. At which time he prompltly handed me an envelope containing pictures....

And here is the Demon Cat. I'll have to hide the whiskey and the missus will have to hide her smokes. I see rehab in his future...



I was charged for this Cat Carrier...



All in all we are glad to have the cat back. I hoped he found Jesus while he was on the streets. He's gonna need all the help he can when he sobers up!

Daz'd I got back into the office after a really frustrating and bad day and opened my rss. Without even seeing the picture I began to crack up in laughter. That was one funny post.
