Awen, for lack of anything better to do, has tagged me with some silly little thingie.  And I, who am always looking for something better to do than housework, have obliged.  Here were the instructions:  Go to your archive, find the 23rd entry, find the 5th line of the 23rd entry, and post it.  Then tag some other folks.  (I'll pass on that part)

"We could hear the laughter and giggling and were not in the least bit worried."  (Here Kitty, May 12, 2004)

This entry recounted the events of a summer's night a few years back when my children discovered a 'kitty' in our yard and occupied themselves by chasing it for close to an hour.  It wasn't until the following morning that we realized that what they were chasing was most definitely NOT a kitty!  Click on the link in the parenthesis for the full story.

The kitty story is so funny!  So glad the little guy didn't squirt your kids!  Animals are amazing.

Oh, now that is just too funny.

Our neighbors got sprayed by one on a nice evening when they were walking to visit other neighbors.  Needless to say, they had to go back home.  Poor folks.

Yep, I had that same pleasure in my townhome in Palmer Lake, CO just outside of Colorado Springs.  I do say pleasure sarcastically because that is the MOST ungodly smell.  Whew!!!!  It took a while for that nasty scent to go away.  It is indeed pure torture.  You feel like you would give anything to smell nice clean air again!

Your kids were very fortunate!

wow I'm surprised the entry doesn't have the word "fart" in it!  *wink*  ;-)

That was a cute entry.  Reminds me of the "blonde rat" a friend of mine from Puerto Rico found under her porch once.  Of course it turned out to be a possum.

well I think just that line should become a mantra
