This is the completed Story Game of “Joe” that you all did an outstanding job in authoring. It’s almost spring and the blossoms are appearing here and there throughout the area. Joe has decided that this year he’s going to do what he’s wanted to do for years. He’s going to join in on the adventure of a lifetime. He pulled out his bag to begin to pack starting with his adventure hat and some goodies to eat.
He also decided to take his trusty cat Bottoms. Together they quickly got on a cruise ship to begin their Adventure of a Lifetime. Bottoms fell asleep so Joe started to unpack. Once everything was unpacked and put away, Joe realized that he had forgotten to bring along the most important things for an adventure like this. He had forgotten his magic rope, torchlight, navigator, and smartphone. Thank goodness he didn’t forget the catnip. What’s a trip without a little catnip?
Bottoms immediately ripped opened the catnip and then ran around the ship and got got eaten by a shark when he fell over board. Joe said, “Bottoms up” and the shark released the cat. Oi you have just tried to eat my Bottoms you nasty piece of work now go get me a towel to dry my poor scared Bottoms. Joe called for the captain of the ship and told him he was not happy about the whole shark situation and demanded to know what was going to be done about it.
The captain told him that he should learn to control his cat better! Joe was not very pleased with the Captain’s comments. He marched off and later he went dinner at the captain’s table and sat next to a very beautiful blonde woman. Discussing a few things, she asked him if he would like to come to her cabin for a night cap. He said I’m looking for adventure, but am happily married, but could you take my cat off my hands, my wife is allergic and I need to change the cat box and vacuum before she comes home tomorrow night with pizza and beer.
The beautiful blonde agreed to take Bottoms and Joe went home and waited for his wife to arrive with the pizza and beer. They had a wonderful evening and she never mentioned the absence of Bottoms. She didn’t call him a jerk for going on a cruise either. She was just happy he came back home. Joe came to the realization that he’s never going to have an Adventure of a Lifetime, but that’s okay because he’s a happy man.

Hello Sandee, great story of Joe's adventure with his cat. I missed participating in this one. Have a beautiful weekend!
I love how everyone does such a great job each time we do one of these. 🙂
Well done, and didn't we all make a great story telling team.
Always a fun exercise. And my readers have such imaginations. 🙂
Love Joe's story and even though he didn't get his adventure of a lifetime it still had a happy ending
We have to have a happy ending don't we. 🙂
Great story. That is fun to read. Sandee, you and Zane have a fun week end.
My readers rock. 🙂
These stories are always so much fun! Joe's adventure is living the life he has, i guess, just like the rest of us.
Yep, Joe is happy and that's all that matters. 🙂
Another fun story…sorry I had to miss participating. They are always fun.
Have a fabulous weekend. I'm keeping good thoughts for you both, and send big hugs times two, honey…
Things are about the same here. Thanks for the good thoughts and the big hugs. 🙂
Fantastic! Boy, we really are a great team. When do we start making our money? ha,ha,ha.
Have a brilliant Saturday Sandee & Zane. See ya.
We've never made any money, but we do have lots of fun and we are a great team. 🙂
Good story, but unrealistic, i think Joe's wife would have called him a jerk.
I'm sure of it and tried to work that in in the ending, but it just didn't feel right. Not everyone know you and Mrs. C. 🙂
This is a good story. Sorry I missed it…
Have a great Saturday!
Perhaps next time. 🙂
LOL that turned out quite good I agree with Rhonda too
Have a bottomstastic day Sandee :-h
My readers are the very best. 🙂
very fun Sandee! Have a wonderful day today!
Thanks Kathe. You all do such a great job moving the story along. 🙂
O Golly, Sandee, I wish that I had a sixth sense to tell me that it was writing day here. This 'Joe and his trusty cat Bottoms' story is written soooo cleverly. The ending that you did was great too!!!
Thanks Jim. Sorry you missed this one. 🙂
Never imagined such an interesting story…!
My readers always do a great job on these. 🙂
Not everyone needs adventure in their life.
I'm happy without the adventure too. 🙂
