Last post is empty because I deleted my original post because it was too wide so only half of it was showing.  Then I couldn't write an explanation.  :o(

How to clean a toilet

This was simply too much of a time saver not to share it with you
.
1. Put both lids of the toilet up


And add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.

2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.


3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid.
You may need to stand on the lid.



4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds.
Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.



5. Flush the toilet three or four times.
This provides a 'power-wash' and rinse'.


6. Have someone open the front door of your home.
Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.

7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift the lid.

8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom,
And run outside where he will dry himself off.


9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean..



Sincerely,

The Dog

Mac, Buffy and I also think this is a great way to clean the toilet but our cats don't think it's much fun. Sorry about their luck, Ozzy

This is a little-known story from the Pentagon on 09/11/2001:

 During a visit with a fellow chaplain, who happened to be assigned to the Pentagon, I had a chance to hear a first-hand account of an incident that happened right after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.. The chaplain told me what happened at a daycare center near where the impact occurred.

This daycare had many children, including infants who were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what they could do. There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that would need to be taken out with the cribs There was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and strollers.

 Just then a young Marine came running into the center and asked what they needed. After hearing what the center director was trying to do, he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared. The director thought, 'Well, here we are—on our own.' About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in tow. Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started gathering up toddlers. The director and her staff then helped them take all the children out of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac and the Pentagon.

 Once they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped in the park, and then did a fabulous thing - they formed a circle with the cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons in the Old West. Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from wandering off.  Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter around the children and waiting for instructions. There they remained until the parents could be notified and come get their children.

 The chaplain then said, "I don't think any of us saw nor heard of this on any of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible story of our men there. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. The thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they reacted; could we expect any less from them?  It was one of the most touching stories from the Pentagon." Remember Ronald Reagan's great compliment: "Most of us wonder if our lives made any difference.  Marines don't have that problem."

 God Bless the USA, our troops, and you.

 If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women who have served and are currently serving our country and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. Pass this on to all your friends!!!

A Woman's Prayer
I pray for:

Wisdom, To understand a man.

Love, To forgive him and;

Patience, For his moods.

Because if I pray for Strength I'll just beat him to death.

Kris:

First American woman in space: Sally Ride, May 26 1951

  Those were their birth years. Valentina went up in 1963 and Sally Ride in 1983. And that is where we got the song "Ride Sally Ride". I think I am beginning to show my age here. Uh oh!!
