Never put a clothes pin on a cat's tail
 

It's not a blinker, it's a turn signal


Willie Nelson is cool

A good parent will listen


If you ever put a cat in a bag, don't let go


Do, don't try


That he loved my grandson enough to trade his life for Josiah's


And that we loved him more than he ever knew.
