war face

This is our cat Tammy standing guard next to her cat house which she never uses. She is standing guard because of the feral cats that come into the yard. She is annoyed by them but doesn’t do anything. She just gives them her “war face”. In boot camp in the military a war face is an angry looking face that is suppose to scare the enemy. And in the picture below, she definitely has an angry look on her face. Her war face.

Do you think that she has a convincing war face? Will it scare the other cats away? Probably not.

In Miami there was a cottage-house restaurant named Tiffany’s. The ambience was great. They had taken an old farm house and made it into a very nice chic restaurant. They had a great brunch buffet on Sundays. I liked going there because it was neat to say that I had “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Only the older folks will remember that movie. But for all those people named Tiffany, anyone who comes to their house for breakfast can say that they had Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Kermit the Frog of the muppets. There was a commercial on television for Denny’s restaurant. Kermit and Miss Piggy are in Denny’s sitting at a table. It is Miss Piggy’s birthday. They are being interviewed and Kermit is extolling the virtues of Denny’s. Miss Piggy’s comment is that when Kermit said that he would take her to dinner for her birthday, she thought that he meant some place over-priced (meaning real nice). I picked up on that phrase and use it myself now. Now when people ask me what would I like for Christmas, I just say “Well, anything overpriced would be just fine.” It is time to go and so I must end this blog. Have fun in life. Lew

Tammy doesn't have a scary face. When a cat gets angry, the ears go flat back. This I know from experience. This is the same way with horses.
