THIS IS A SIX WORD SATURDAY POST
SPLICE THE MAIN BRACE
It's not that I'm always nautical
just feeling as humorful as that expression is, FINALLY!
it's a synonym for taking a drink!
This nautical saying links to any "brace" or rope that is worn and can be strengthened by "splicing." Man (they say) is strengthened by a strong drink ...so, to "splice the main brace" is to serve out grog. (a variety of alcoholic beverages).
You see the evening before my 6:00 a.m. flight to California (best wine sipping) I had a MURPHY LAW experience! (if anything can go wrong, it will) Yes, my right hand arm got in the center of a lady cat fight between my usually tame cat and my daughter's not so interactive/I need no NEW friends ever, I am Queen! My tame Miss Alpha-Cat stood her ground.
Once I landed in California a quick shot in the hip, followed by Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium Tablets (and resisting pain pills I took Advil for the throbbing and constant excruciating pain of it all.)
BUT what place to be in such pain, right? I mean sunny California to take your mind off your troubles, right?!
Enough whining. Yes, both kitties still live, after all Mine was faced with royalty that threatened her entire kingdom. Once she discovered it was me she was battling I saw her complete horror.
But, all that while I was in wine country, I could not partake.
So what is going on in your world today? If you care to share go here
