Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
No one is more cautious than a first-time parent. After our daughter was
big enough to ride on the back of my bicycle, I bought a special carrier
with a seat belt and got her a little helmet. The day of the first ride I put
her in the seat, double-checked all the equipment, wheeled the bike to
the end of the driveway, carefully looked both ways and, swinging my
leg up over the crossbar, accidentally kicked her right in the chin. 😱😳😁😎
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? ” 
Soylent Green is people!!!

Answer:  Soylent Green

The line was said by a horrified Charlton Heston, as the New York Police Detective who realized that the drug was not made of plankton at all, but was made from dead humans. Though the special effects in the movie can’t hold a shine to those possible in today’s movies, the sinister score and the acting by a solid cast of classic-era actors makes it a good one to check out.

Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
In a small cottage near the woods, five kittens were born. Their names were Purry, Whiskers, Mewler, Kiki, and Cayli. They each had different fur patterns, a certain favorite treat, and a secret hideout. There was a calico cat, a Siamese cat, a gray tabby cat, a black cat, and an orange cat. The foods they liked were one of the following: salmon, tuna, chicken, turkey, or shrimp. The places that they went to hide were the front porch, the forest, the roof, under the table, and behind the couch.

1. The kitten who often explored in the forest had a coat which allowed him to blend in with the shadows.
2. Purry liked to spy on the black cat from her secret hideout. She had a great view because of the height she had to climb to get to her hideout.
3. The two cats who liked fish liked to stay indoors. The two cats who liked poultry wanted to go outside but were afraid of the forest.
4. Cayli loved being outdoors, but she didn’t want to go too far away. She thought that Kiki and the Siamese cat were missing out on the sunlight.
5. Whiskers couldn’t stand the stench of shrimp and tuna.
6. The kitten with gray stripes bragged that she was the closest to the sun, but the orange cat believed that her spot allowed her to get plenty of sunlight.
7. Whenever the aroma of turkey reached her, Purry would quickly climb down and go back inside to get some.
8. The Siamese cat loved the fish that began with the same letter as his breed, and he would always sleep right beneath where this delicious fish was served.
