Cat, Get Outta Here!! & The Hunt Is On!

This is Enforcer. He loves his parents. Especially Mommy. His thing is to wait until everyone is asleep or on the verge of sleep and walk across their hair. Or lay down beside Mommy. With his behind in her face. He likes to do that also to Daddy as he crawls into bed. There is no way to combat this. If you shut the bedroom door, it gets unbearably warm and you block the only way to get to Alex if there is problem. Enforcer also is an alarm cat. If you sleep past 5, 6, or 7 am, he will walk across you again and lay down beside you to wake you up. But in the end, he's a good cat. Even if he claws you, disturbs your sleep, tortures the world's cutest kitten, Krystal, and gets into stuff he's not supposed to. Yup. He's a pest sometimes, but I love him and glad he's my cat. Though, he thinks he's Mommy's cat and he probably loves her more. Why? Mommy most of the times puts food in the dish, while Daddy cleans the litter box.

It's getting close to Memorial Day Weekend. First, I want to give a shout out to the brave and courageous men and women who have given there all to keep the great land free. Without those who have risked, fought tooth and nail, and died for this country, we would be a land under oppression. Thank you very much, all of you.

So every Memorial Day, in the small town of Landisville, a few miles from here, has what I would think to be the best flea market in the county. They have twice a year, once on Memorial Day and then on Labor Day. When I go this year, I call it a hunt. A Transformer and G.I. Joe hunt.
As you know, I'm a big 80s toy nut with my main collection being Transformers and G. I. Joe. (Sorry, no Joe pictures yet. I'm working on a photographic layout for them.) As you can tell, I got pretty many. I guess what it comes down to is, I'm trying to relive my childhood. It's an adventure trying to find the toys I wanted as a kid. We weren't as lucky as some of the other kids growing up, (but we made due!) and it seemed they had the cool toys. I look back not in jealousy or envy, but more with the sense, do they still have them and if so, are their parents dopey enough to sell them at a stupid price? That's why I love this flea market. Some of these sellers don't realize what they have and sell at a cheap price. I'm not taking advantage of them. They're the ones who don't research the prices of what toys they might have. (Queue the evil laugh) Yeah, sometimes you get someone who knows their stuff. A lot of times they don't and then it's get it before someone else does. The last time wasn't so great. I got some good stuff, but it was far and few between. The biggest thing is it will be Alex's first flea market. I hope he likes it.

Well that's it for this time. I'll let you know how I do. Catch you on the flipside!

Don't ya just love alarm cats? And of course the best part is when they wake you at 4:00 in the morning after the time change in the fall because their stomachs think it's five o'clock.
