Foiled by Good Samaritan
My bicycle was recently stolen while at Academy Sports and I was unable to catch the thief as he rode it down Key Street toward Henderson Stadium.
I asked a guy in a pickup to help me overtake the thief, he said get in and some moments later, we had re-taken the bicycle. Many thanks to the Good Samaritan in the pickup truck.

Although declawing is a painful and unnecessary procedure for a cat, there is an apartment complex in Warner Robins where management requires that all resident cats be declawed.
And this requirement is hidden in the fine print of the lease when it should be stated loud and clear before anyone signs a contract or pays a deposit.
However, there is no requirement for dogs to have their teeth removed in case they should chew on the woodwork in the apartments.
Perhaps a cats claws (and it is actually the toes that are removed) are not considered to be an important part of the anatomy or psyche. Because cats walk on their toes, I think that cats probably have a very strong attachment to them.
Renters beware! Read the entire lease before plunking down any money. You may be faced with a painful dilemma: put your cat through the trauma of toe removal, or relinquish your cat to a rescue group and ask them to find your cat a loving home.

Ticket for 2016
Ted Cruz and Mark Levin in 2016. Unless you live off the blood, sweat and tears of working Americans, you know exactly what I mean.

Listening to the president, it seems that whoever wrote and rewrote the talking points on Benghazi also wrote and rewrote the talking points on Obamacare. In three short weeks his story went from the system being overwhelmed with applicants to the glitches being upgraded to technical problems.
And now, after the result of the Oct. 1 rollout, my daughter is only half employed. Thanks, Obamacare.

Prayer for Today
Father, love is the key that unlocks many doors. Help us to show love in our everyday walk with thee. The love that you show us is beyond measure. We certainly do not deserve your love, but we thank you for never failing us. We love you because you first loved us. Amen.
-- Alice M. Pritchett
