Boss Lady Delivers My Bonus Pay
As special compensation for this blog surpassing 100,000 viewings, Boss Lady has delivered my bonus pay. It may not be canned tuna-in-oil, but it is quite fine nonetheless.

Quite Tasty, Thank You Very Much
See what you can get when you work hard and meet deadlines?
Of course, my "cub" reporter, Harley Quinn, had to nose around to see what all the fuss was about.

Don't Work on This, Harley
(They're Still Mine)
Here's a snippet of my conversation with Harley about my pay bonus:
HARLEY: Ohboyohboyohboyohboy!!! Can I have some, pleeeeeeze, Cauli? Please, please, please, please, please, plEEEEEEEEEEEze?
CAULI: You should say, "may."
HARLEY: Why do I have to wait all the way until next May? I'm hungry NOW!
Well, all that cheek-rubbing and belly-aching soon drew a crowd of my special feline correspondents.

Thanks are certainly in order for Boss Lady. This was truly a grand gesture of gratitude for my delivering some serious statistics for the Library's blogging. I and my feline colleagues really appreciate it.

P.S. Have I previously used as a musical closer "Working Man," by Rush, from the group's debut self-titled album (1974)? Well, it's a good working song.
P.P.S. How about "Workin' For a Livin," by Huey Lewis and the News, from the LP Picture This (1982). Don't get Scowl-Face talking about the time he flew from Salt Lake City to Missoula, Montana with Huey Lewis. You'll never hear the end of it.
P.P.P.S. Thinking about Harley begging for my pay bonus chow reminded moi of the single "Magic Bus" (1968), by The Who, when Roger Daltrey, in the role of the bus passenger, sang that he wanted to buy the bus, but the bus driver, played by Pete Townshend, sang in reply that he can't have it. Some critics argued that the song was inspired by the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour bus (1967), but Townshend wrote the song during recording sessions for the album My Generation, which occurred two years earlier, and was released in the U.S. as The Who Sings My Generation (1966).
