Life is my litterbox ... Grab the SCOOP!

Thrills on Tuesday!

One of Mom's favorite people at her job is a former Sony manager turned high school computer lab facilitator named Minako.  Looking at Minako, the average person wouldn't guess that she's an awesome bowler, world traveller, and dare devil ...

But she is!

Minako celebrated a big birthday last week with a tandem jump out of an airplane!  Can you believe it?


In San Diego ... not far from where Mom lives and works ... there is an airstrip called Brown Field where ordinary folks can learn to fly airplanes and gliders, and take lessons that allow them to jump out of planes.

Mom only started flying in 737s as a first class passenger two years ago ... so it's gonna take awhile for her to work up the guts that Minako has.  But until then, Minako is our HERO!  Way to go!!!

Oh, we think we'll skip the freefall jump from higher than the fridge. A dog, or even a cat, could get hurt jumping out of a plane.

I think I'll stay with my four paws firmly on the ground, thanks.

OH, that looks very frightening; I'm with Pablo.

Our mom is planning to go up in a hot air balloon next week and she is kinda scared.

Smooches to DaisyMae,

Your mom's friend is very brave! My mom doesn't even like flying in airplanes so I know she would never consider jumping out of one!

Purrrrrrrrs, Willow
