THE PARENTS WHO DRUGGED US ?

Thanks to Peter H.
The other day I was in an old farmhouse in the adjoining farm and someone asked me a rhetorical question:
'Why didn't we have a drug problem when you and I were growing up?'
I replied that I had a drug problem when I was young:
 
I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
I was drug to church for weddings and funerals.
I was drug to family reunions and community socials no matter the weather.
I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults.
 
I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents,
told a lie, brought home a bad report card, did not speak with respect,
spoke ill of the teacher or the priest,
or if I didn't put forth my best effort in everything that was asked of me.
I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth washed out
with soap if I uttered a profanity.
 
I was drug out to pull weeds in the garden and flower beds.
 
I was drug to the homes of neighbours to help mow the yard,
repair the clothesline, and if my mother had ever known that I took a
single dime as a tip for this kindness,
my dad would have drug me back to the woodshed.
 
Those drugs are still in my veins
 and they affect my behaviour in everything I do, say, or think.
They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin,
and if today's children had this kind of drug problem,
Australia would be a better place.
God bless the parents who drugged us.

A Place In Japan Called 'Cat Heaven Island'

Thanks to Unslave Me

Forget cat cafes and house pets, if you're a real feline fan there's only one place you need to be: cat heaven island.

Tashirojima, a fishing town just off the east coast of Japan, has more cats than people. And it looks glorious. 

According to reports, cats were first brought to the island to protect silkworm farms from mice. But when the silk industry left, so did the majority of the human population.

Now just 100 people remain and the cats certainly rule the roost.

The locals feed and tend to the many cats, believing that they will be brought good luck and prosperity.

And there's no chance of being upstaged by their canine friends, for dogs are banned from the island.

Call me a crazy cat lady, but I can't wait to visit
