Paul Gaylord spent a month in intensive care due to infection from the bubonic plague. According to a Daily Mail article, Gaylord developed the symptoms after he was bitten by a stray cat his family took in. There are some horrifying pictures of what the plague did to Paul that can be seen here, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
I’m glad he’s OK, but when you invite a cat into your home you are asking for this kind of trouble. One minute a cat can be staring through your soul with its human-like eyes as if it wants to kill you; the next minute it can be transferring to you the most deadly virus known to man. You can’t win with these animals.
England Dan & John Ford Coley were a music group in the 1970s. They are known for their hit song “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight.”
In the song, Dan & John are real coy with their intentions when they call up a woman, claiming they’d be all right with just watching tv with them. But that long hair and mustache tell you otherwise, ladies. They’re coming over to get it on.
When my son or daughter asks me what the 1970s were like, I’ll simply show them a picture of the England Dan & John Ford Coley album above. Seems accurate.
