The Dance

Early yesterday morning my wife came downstairs and let the cats out the
back door. In a few minutes our wise old female cat, Pookie, who only
sleeps in the highest, safest places, and then jumps down to startle me,
came back indoors with a present. She dropped a small dead field mouse
on the kitchen floor at my wife’s feet.

I was in the study with the computer, finding out how the Yankees had
done against the Orioles, when I heard her calling me vigorously from
the other side of the house. I went in to find Pookie sitting proudly
near the little mouse while my wife praised her efficiency and skill. Me
she told to get rid of the remains. I got a paper towel and bent down to
retrieve the dead mouse. But it turned out the mouse was only playing
dead. Next thing I knew I was groping thin air and feeling a tickling up
around my knee.

That little dead mouse had run up the inside of my pajama leg and must
have been clinging on for dear life. Next thing I was hopping around the
kitchen shaking my leg in a kind of frantic dance while my wife stared
at me in amazement. After a dozen hard shakes, the mouse dislodged from
its perch and dropped to the floor, playing dead once again.

This time I quick grabbed its tail and carried it out in the dark yard,
dropping it in the grass next to the garden. Then I went back in and had
a cup of strong coffee. It made for a good story when my daughters came
down for breakfast.

Off The Shelf

Have you tried a new product lately? Want to share your opinion with
others? This is your chance to review new grocery items. Name the
product. Say what it is. We ask that you be specific about the qualities
you like or dislike without getting “long-winded.” We also ask you to
mention your city and state (or country) because all new products aren’t
available everywhere and some are just in test markets. Please, no
direct marketing items.

Put OTS or Off The Shelf in the subject line and send to

Hi Rich,
Your comments about Swiffer really touched a nerve with me. I have had a
Clorox Ready Mop for several years now and the supplies for it have gone
off the shelf literally. All you can buy in the warehouse stores or
retail outlets are Swiffer products. And although I do have a Swiffer
Sweeper, for wet mopping, I like the Clorox product much better so I
contacted them about where to buy their products. I live in a suburb
just north of Phila. and what they told me was that there is one K-Mart
in Southwest Phila that stocks the product. Like I am going to travel
clear across town just to buy supplies to mop the floor! Talk about
frustrating! Anyway I was able to find the pads & cleaners on line at
Amazon. Of course, this means I must plan ahead and can not ever allow
myself to run out of them. Seems like Swiffer rules! Thanks for all you
do and just wanted you to know it’s nice to have a place to vent!

Do You Remember?

Fortunes 1965

I see that worried look upon your face,
You've got your troubles, I got mine.
She's found somebody else to take your place;
You've got your troubles, I got mine.

I too have lost my love today,
All of my dreams have flown away.
Now just like you I sit and wonder why;
You've got your troubles, I got mine.

You need some sympathy, well so do I,
You've got your troubles, I got mine.
She used to love me, that I know,
And it don't seem so long ago
That we were walking, that we were talking
The way that lovers do.
And so forgive me if I seem unkind,
You've got your troubles, I got mine.

(Counter: And it must seem to you, my friend
That I ain't got no pity for you,
Well, that ain't true,
You see I love that little girl, little girl, little girl.)

I'd help another place, another time,
You've got your troubles, I got mine.
You've got your troubles, I got mine.
You've got your troubles, I got mine.
