My friend told me a funny story I thought I'd share.
Sadly, a bob cat has been coming into our pasture during the day and stealing our chickens. (This is not the funny part!)
We have gone to great lengths in an attempt to keep the cat out including raising our fence from 6 feet to 9 feet and adding an electric wire. Unfortunately, fort knocks does not keep this Cat Burglar out.
My friends, the one I promised to tell you about, was talking to her kids about my frustrations over the bob cat and her daughter blurted-out: " I feel sorry for the Portuguese".
My friend was shocked and surprised that her daughter would blurt that out, so for clarification she asked: "What did you say?, and her daughter repeated: "I feel sorry for the Portuguese"!
At this point my friend was getting upset and told her daughter not to be dis-respectful to the Portuguese and her daughter replied: " I did not say Portuguese I said Poor Chickies". They spent the rest of the night laughing.
