A young 'Cat's day at Bolthole

<What are you working on?>

"A spider-drive detector."

<You already have one of those. It is Honor. Treecats can sense when something is out there, even when we can not see it. Honor has that ability as well. That is why she is your best tactician."

Out of the mouth of babes.

Honor and her mom


"What, Honor? Is that all that they pay you?"

"Yes, mom."

"Well, you might want to ask for a raise."

"I am only entitled to a Fleet Admiral's salary."

"If you really believe that Honor, tell them you resign and you want to spend the rest of your life sailing, and let's see what happens."

"You really think so mom?"

"Listen honey. The MBS cornered the market on trade, by the might of the MWJ. King Roger was a savvy SOB. But you, Honor, can corner the market on yourself, by might of the Salamander."

"Mom, you've always been a financial wizard."

"I was destined to be honey. I have the same Beowulfan blood that negotiated the original treaty with Manticore. Beowulfans were smart enough to claim their slice of the pie. We are some savvy SOB's too. Especially back then when everyone was trying to eke out a living."

"Next to that, mom, my career is small fries."

"Perhaps, honey, but there's no need for them to insult you."

"But, then, I am already a googolionaire by my Steading on Grayson and Skydomes."

"And they seem to be the easiest jobs of all. You don't have to do any work. And they don't risk your life. Let's face it Honor, you are more valuable to yourself."

"So you really think I should retire?"

"No Honor, but according to your pay, you are underqualified. That's slander."

"So what are you saying?"

"My God girl, ask for a raise."

" :lol: :lol: "

Customs Agent

"Belay that order, call the feline squad."

Darius System


"Benjamin, I need your assistance with Harrington?"

"Howso?"

"She's at the top of... our," pausing to let that sink in, "CAASAP list. She needs to be assassinated. She's always stinking everything up."

"She's a salamander, Colin. She's always lying around in the heat of battle. What do you think a salamander should smell like, lying around 24/7 in the heat?"

"What is it Benjamin?"

"It's that damned Harrington. I wish she hadn't inherited everything from us. She isn't really retired. She's just sleeping, until they find us."

A psychologist's nightmare


"How should I know whether the Cat is crazy? Treecats are always hearing voices. Some of them sing!"

Dempsey's Bar

“W :o W! Dempseys has gotten even more popular! I didn't know that was possible.“

“Haven't you heard? Dempsey's employs pleasure slaves now. It gives a whole new meaning to happy hour."

"Who's idea was this?"

"That's the funny part. The Mesan Alignment made sure they could not conceive. But one of them conceived of this. And she's making a killing!"

An LD in an unsuspecting system

ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL WHILE DRIFTING

"Stop!"

"Oh crap! We are less than a meter from the mine!"

"Yeah! Thank goodness for these oversized Brembo brakes. Let's see a GA ship make an emergency stop on a dime without stopping on a mine."
