The end of Early Luxury Cars time forgot:
The Stutz, 1911-1937
Just heard from Jack
Jr. he did not get sick after being exposed to the Virus, It has been a couple weeks,
he feels good so he is coming down for Thanksgiving. Son Mark will travel from Florida to NC for
Thanksgiving with his family up there. The boys will probably pass on the way
up and down. LOL
We are looking forward
to Jack Jr. and he will also bring our mail.
Now the bad news. Old Tuxedo Tom my
good friend who let me start petting him just a few days after I started
feeding him, betrayed me. I was petting him yesterday he was rubbing his head
against one arm as I was petting him as he sat in the chair beside me on the
patio. All of a sudden the sucker grabbed my arm with his claws and bit my hand
pretty deep with his big fangs.
I have never worried
about dogs, scratches nor nips. But I have much different thoughts about cats,
stemming from a nephew’s experience up in NYC.
Woody had leukemia his dad was a match so he was the donor for the
bone marrow transplant. The operation was a success and all was going well. It
was done at Sloan Kettering. The doctors warned him of his LACK of an immune
system. They warned him about being around animals, specifically warned about
cats. He did not listen, he loved his
cats. He developed an infection (or something
from the cats). Everything went downhill fast. He succumbed to the infection.
He is gone and it appeared because he paid no attention.
I ALWAYS wash my hands
after petting the cats. So after the
encounter of the Tommy Tuxedo kind, I scrubbed the scratches and bite. Poured alcohol
on and rubbed it in. (HURT, lol). Then I poured Peroxide on.
Immediately I smacked the sucker after the bite and he ran. Wouldn’t
you know it; I went back out and here comes Tux. Rubbing against my legs
wanting to be petted.
I told him, “I should
just kill you, you rat fink, and this hurts!” He looked up like, ‘I’m sorry……..
maybe.’ Then he jumped up on the card table and rolled over and over asking me
to pet him. I didn’t dare. LOL
The bite is still sore
today, it is pretty deep. I don’t think I have rabies. I don’t feel like biting Tux back (YET)! LOL Maybe I’ll bite Sherry!
Imma worry if I start growing hair all over!
