My Cat Is Funny

We have three cats in our house. Today I would like to speak about one of them. His name is tiger and he likes to go outside a lot. The problem is that it has been raining and he hates the rain. Nevertheless, he meowed at the door and so I let him out. When he discovered it was raining, he wanted back in.

I guess my cat thinks he is smart and so he decided to try the back door. He meowed at the back door until I let him out again. He quickly discovered that it was raining outback as well. Now he has given up and is under the couch. He is one funny cat!

New Beginnings

April is always a month of new beginnings for me. It is usually the month that includes Easter and also Spring Break. It means the first day of Spring – officially. It used to mean the start of Daylight Savings Time, but now we do that in March.

It is always the month that we discover how pale skinned we are – so we go to the tanning salon to get a base tan. We discover how fat we became over the winter – so we start a serious new diet before buying our new bathing suits for the summer. It’s a lot of beginnings and I love the month of April.

In like a Lion

Today being the first day of March and Spring just around the corner, I was wondering if it would be nice weather or stormy weather. After all, they say that if March comes in like a Lion with bad weather, that it will go out like a lamb with nice weather.

The weather doesn’t really mean that much to me unless it is extreme, but I do admit that if I had a choice I would prefer good weather, like a typical Spring or Summer day. I guess that also depends upon your definition of good. To me, good weather is a sunny day with a slight breeze. If the temperatures range anywhere between 55 and 90, then I am a happy girl.

Smarter Than Rain?

Anyone who has ever owned a cat has been led to the door. My cat Jack will come over and meow, meow, meow until someone gets up and lets him out. Jack is very territorial and likes to check his turf on a nightly basis.

One thing Jack does not like is rain; it would take a lot of effort to put him out in it. Jack is a pretty smart cat and when he sees its raining out of the front door, he will try the back door next. It’s always funny to me that he thinks the back door will provide results more to his liking.

Which reminds me of a story that my father told me when I was little, how he was looking out the window of his living room, when he was little, and it was raining. Then he went to the back of the house and looked out a window in the rear of the house, and to his surprise it wasn’t raining out back.

I really don’t remember the reason or the moral of the story, I just remember him telling me that this happened and how surprised he was at his discovery. I’ve always wanted to witness such an event and have tried to no avail as of yet anyway.

In the mean time, back to the present time, poor jack, I guess it’s another long night looking out the window!

Fishing Can Be Fun

As I’ve mentioned before, I love go fishing. With a little bit of planning, a fishing trip can be great fun for the while family. With this in mind, here are a few top tips on how to go about planning a successful fishing trip – even if you don’t catch many fish!

Firstly, if you are planning on going as a group, then you will need to make sure that you have all that you need to keep everyone comfortable and entertained. Although catching fish can be exciting, you might be waiting some time before you get a bite, so take a good book, magazine, or even a laptop to play foxy bingo on while you wait. You’ll want something which can keep you entertained, without causing too much noise that might scare away a potential catch.

You will also need to stock up on bait or flies. Know what type of fish it is that you are hoping to catch, and find out what works best in attempting to attract them. You will also want to make sure you have the right type of hooks and lines to reel in your catch. For most places, you will need a license in order to be able to go fishing, so it is worth finding out whether or not this is the case and ensuring that your license is in date. After all, you don’t want to arrive at your chosen location, only to find that you have to head straight back home again.

Lastly, it is good to remember that fishing trips can easily be an all-day affair, so pack a few snacks to keep you going. If you’re fishing during the cooler weather, then it can be a good idea to take a flask of hot coffee or soup to help everyone stay warm. Have fun!
