  1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner.
  2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone. He asked me what I was wearing.
  3. 2019: Stay away from negative people. 2020: Stay away from positive people.
  4. The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of the house & their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
  5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog. It was obvious she thought her dog understood her. I came into my house & told my cat. We laughed a lot.
  6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
  7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands?
  8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do. Cancel sports, shut down all bars & keep men at home!
  9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!
  10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
  11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard. I’m getting tired of the Living Room.
  12. Appropriate analogy. "The curve is flattening so we can start lifting restrictions now” is like saying “The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now.”
  13. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask & ask for money.

I'll have you know my dog understood me just fine! We were both multispecies bilingual.

LOL! AGREE. 😃

My puppies understand me, too. I don't get how someone could actually think otherwise.

My cat knows how to growl. 😾

And my other cat barks when he is excited about getting a treat. And that - of course - brings the other cat running.

I have huskies, the original cat dogs.

Is that a be-nice-to-the-cat dog or is it a go-get-'em kind of dog?

They don't know any cats but they act quite a bit like cats.

Yep.

Except when the husky is standing on the kitchen counter or on the back of the recliner.  They definitely rub up against your legs and stretch into the oddest shapes. 

No purring.

A husky standing on the kitchen counter. That beggars the imagination!
