The Toy!

major...."Biped! Open our present from Uncle."

groan, moan, rip

biped...."Oh darn, it needs batteries."

major....."This is soooo cool biped."


major....."Biped! Look I gots a tank for Christmas."

angel...."Do you think we should tell her that the toy is in pieces on the counter."

smudge...."Nah let her enjoy herself. Who knows when the biped will find the batteries."

Update.....A million years ago when da biped used to work, she had a friend named Tommy who was a vetran of the Korean war. Medical care then was not what it is today so when he got injured it took so long to get help that he ended up paralyzed and eventually assigned a humongous electric wheel chair. It left Tommy a wee bit bitter to say the least. So when Operation Desert Storm came along Tommy was sitting there in the cafeteria and said that he'd gotten a letter from the Army. He stated that they wanted to throw a card board box over him and his wheel chair and call him a tank. When I saw Major in her box it reminded me of my old friend.

Thank you all for my morning giggle!! My favorite right now is the "cat tractor" for Joya. Were my Joplin grandmother still alive, I would have gotten it right away.

We mewed when Major said you'd had a tank for Christmas - it looked as though her head would have been looking out the top of the tank. haha!!

Awwww Major! Always enjoy the toy in-paw. It's worth two on the counter!
Have fun with your tank, sweety!

That is an awesome box Major. Sometimes mom brings home a box from work. The last one was for the kittens, but it got used by everyone!

That box does not look like it needs batteries!

That is a cool tank! Where do you put the batteries?

Miss Major, you make a pawsome tank! That is a funny take on a sad story with your friend. I've been very lucky as the VA has done a lot for my dad (also a Korean War vet), but he didn't really need much help from them until the late 80s.

We love boxes over here! There is just sooo much fun to be had with a box with holes in it! Have fun, kitty friends. ;)
