I did fall back and have voted. OBAMA-BIDEN got my vote. Thanks TC GYPSY says: November 4, 2012 at 9:37 am Love the cat!! TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:31 am We are loveable. Phyllis says: November 4, 2012 at 1:12 pm Meoooooow !! What time is it anyway-!! TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:31 am 6:32 AM SoINeedAName says: November 4, 2012 at 1:32 pm I actually forgot. I was wanting to watch "The Chris Matthews" talk show this morning, which comes on at 6:30 AM, and was disappointed when they were running an infomercial. I thought maybe they had switched broadcast time because they were going to cover the NYC Marathon, and didn't have time to switch back once it was cancelled. Not until I finally looked at my COMPUTER clock did realize it was only 5:30 AM. I don't know about you, but I'm starting to find those little "Senior-Moment" breaks from reality quite refreshing. TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:33 am One year I showed up to church and hour early and found it empty. Lynn Squance says: November 4, 2012 at 1:53 pm Yes I fell back! But the critters didn't! They were up begging for breakfast an hour early. My conversation went like this: "Uhhhh . . . harumph . . . it's too early! Go back to bed!" then I put my head down. I guess they got the message because they went back to bed until I woke up again. Cats are so smart! John Dasef says: November 4, 2012 at 6:46 pm Lynn, Your cats are waaay more forgiving than our resident feline/overlord. Got the same wake-up call – "my food bowl is empty, fill it NOW!" Looked at the clock, rolled over in a futile attempt to take advantage of that extra hour. Paws up on the edge of the bed, bright green eyes boring into the back of my head , plus that almost subliminal growl promising exquisite and inventive forms of harassment until I fill the aforementioned bowl. OK, so I'm a wuss, I caved. TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:33 am We rule! SoINeedAName says: November 4, 2012 at 6:00 pm PS: Your graphic reminds me of the classic "Buttered Cat Paradox". We all know that if you drop a cat, it'll ALWAYS land on its feet. We also know that if you drop a piece of toast, it'll ALWAYS land jelly-side down on the floor. So what happens if you strap a slice of jellied-toast on the back of a cat, and then drop it? CONUNDRUM! John Dasef says: November 4, 2012 at 6:59 pm With any other animal, that might be a conundrum, but these are cats we're talking about. #1, you have to strap a slice of toast on the back of the cat. #2, after you have finished applying antiseptic and bandages to the wounds incurred while attempting to accomplish #1, you have to find a place from which to drop a very pissed-off cat. #3, you have to locate the aforementioned pissed-off cat, who has vacated the premises at a high rate of speed upon being dropped, to determined if the piece of toast landed up or down. #4, good luck with #1 through 3, you will need it TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:35 am We solved that paradox a long time ago. We eat the toast on the way down and land on our feet. Patty says: November 5, 2012 at 3:15 am Stupid me! I forgot to turn the clocks back. That's not the bad part though. I forgot to teach the cats how to tell time so they woke me up at their usual 5:30 AM which was actually 4:30 AM. Today we reached a happy medium of 5 AM. Hopefully we'll even out even better as the week progresses. TomCat says: November 5, 2012 at 6:36 am Tell your cats that their cousin TC says they should hold out!
