Frank has to work overtime that afternoon and evening. He tried to schedule the day off, but it was a no go. Since he only has three weeks until ER, and since he had a perfect attendance record for most of his time there including all of last year (and has worked hundreds and hundreds of hours of overtime that they pushed him to work, too), he might decide that he is sick that day. Hard telling.

Eddie seems like a great cat, and certainly has the looks for the position. We don't know a lot about him, though. There are rumors about him and the lady cats flying around, and the bottom-of-the litter-box tabloids have uncovered photos of him goofing off on the payroll... Unfortunately, you should have performed a thorough background check before throwing his hat in the ring. And he looks part siamese or burmese? hmmm, better start looking for that birth certificate....

Actually, Eddie was born in West Virginia! I adopted him from a rescue group that pulled him out of a shelter there. His mom and littermates were all ordinary kitties - tabbies mostly. We do have questions about his dad though....

I think you need to check your calendar, not your clock...

I'm guessing Westernskies and his DW are in or on route to Austria right about now. Here's hoping they both have a great time!
