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!
PS: Imma worry if I start growing hair all over!
