Hey Groovy,

This made me realize how I neglected to ask you about kittens. And why you like them. Start over?

Purrs and headbumps,


I purr therefore I am.

Welcome, groovy.
Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

Sorry. I wanted to reply a while back, but kept getting distracted by final project, final exam or work. I like kittens because they're adorable. And, when they grow up, if you can survive their vicious attacks on your arms and furniture as well as their aerial assaults from on top of the fridge, you get to put them in a pot, and then into your belly. No?

I kid. Cats are nice ppl.

It's Sunday night. How to make the pain go away? Teetotaler here.

I'm hoping franchise-offered training, the right partner(s) and a good manager could possibly allow me to be an absentee-owner...or at least an absent-minded owner.
Check out McDonald's or Burger King. I heard of one guy who owned 8 Burger Kings, so it wasn't that hands-on (at least for him).
