Cheshire Cats of Pasadena

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.



"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."



"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.



"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

  3. I love the transition you've made with your photos here. I do hope the little kitty wasn't turned into a pillar of salt.

  4. Gotcha, Tony. KBF, you're absolutely right, I forget to ask permission. He's a beauty, isn't he Jean and Shell. Carolynn, have you found that cats are more likely than dogs to look you straight in the eye?

  5. Peoples is mad most of the time. So is that concrete cat with the missing ear tip. Thats what they do when they sterilize feral cats (nip off the top of one ear)

    humiliating

    They'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
    They'll stone you just like they said they would
    They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
    They'll stone you when you're there all alone
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    They'll stone you when you're walking on the street
    They'll stone you when you're trying to keep your seat
    They'll stone you when your walking on the floor
    They'll stone you when your walking to the door
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    They'll stone you when you're at the breakfast table
    They'll stone you when you are young and able
    They'll stone you when you're trying to make a buck
    They'll stone you and then they'll say good luck
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned

    Well They'll stone you and say that it's the end
    They'll stone you and then they'll come back again
    They'll stone you when you're riding in your car
    They'll stone you when you're playing you guitar
    Yes But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned
    Alright

    Well They'll stone you when you are all alone
    They'll stone you when you are walking home
    They'll stone you and then say they're all brave
    They'll stone you when you're send down in your grave
    But I would not feel so all alone
    Everybody must get stoned
