a new column by Shandy cat
Well, I had most of this post ready for the last Thursday in JUNE, yes June 2013, but Mum forgot to post it back then. Now not only the last Furs-day in June has passed, but also the last Furs-day in July. When I at last pointed this out to Mum and politely asked her if she wanted me to continue my Column, she gave a gasp and said “oh no, it’s Cat-man Do Tues-day today, what shall I do?” She had obviously gone “cuckoo” so I advised her why not wait until the next Furs-day and then post my Post even if it was not the last Thursday of the Month. In this case, it is the first Furs-day of August.
This confused poor Mum no end. After some blank looks, then looks of bewilderment, Mum muttered “I suppose I can do that, and then – you can still do your regular post on 29 August or if not, then in September or something or other.” I tell you !! So, here it is. Stand by please, for my monthly Furs-Day post, and blame Mum for it being very, very LATE.
