    Default Crazy request

    Now I just had the most strange thing happen, Nevah did hear of anything like it before in my life....

    I have had frinds and neighbors ask to borrow a cup of sugar, a couple of eggs, a hammer a few nails and other such common things that goes on in life.

    As I was just standing in my yard talking to a 20 year friend and neighbor about one of his blast freezers and a potential man I have had under my wing for a spell my giving him some OJT (on the job training) in the field of Industrial Refrigeration.... The young man has has exibited to me of being worth my time to pass on to him a trade that I do know something about.

    >I learned it the hard way but learned it well. Some I have encountered I would run when I find they have no real intrest in being a professional but just want the payday....

    >Anyway my friend and neighbor who he his two brothers and a cousin have a right big amount of people they employ in the area needs a mechannic that will listen to an olf fart in the industry so the mess performs as was designed.

    As we were concluding th conversation he say,s... Oh my cousin wants to ask a favor of you if you can. So he called him on the cell phone and gave it to me to talk...

    Mr. John, (I am called by all the locals by this) I want to borrow a cat from you...

    Now did I hear right? I have exposed myself to diving lobsters in my youth, Exposed myself to unprotected gunfire and a hell of a lot of it, I have worked around diesel engines screaming with the power output, and I do have trouble hearing things. Women and children I have to almost lip read if they speak to softly.

    Did I hear this man right?

    You want to borrow a WHAT?

    I want to borrow a CAT.......

    After about 4 exchanges I finally got it...

    He wanted to borrow one of my Cats

    Seems his house has been invaded with rats..

    Should I make him leave a deposit?

    Hmm, what's a fair price for a skilled rodent hunter?

    Can't he find a stray somewhere and adopt it?

    I sent the REAL Cazador (Hunter) of the group home with him, The old Mama Cat with her two nursling female kittens.

    He lives about a 1/4 mile from us and perhaps she will not figure out how to get back with her kittens very soon.

    I really want the kittens to get a good taste of Rat meat so they will grow in the right direction.

    I'm getting used to your spelling with a hyphen. Don't go back to your redneck spelling.

    JW I would send you a box full of A's but I don't know if they would make it through customs.

    How is the cat rental business working out?
