Thank you, one and all
, for saving Miss Kitty! Your bravery in chasing off that big ape was heroic indeed!
Yes, Miss Kitty is safe; and so am I. Let me review the most recent events.
Whilst you were distracting the giant ape, Miss Kitty's boyfriend (the ship's officer seen in earlier photographs) helped get her back safely aboard.
Here we see Miss Kitty pondering her fate, whilst in the grip of the ape. At this point, she was still in an initial state of shock.
While you folks were keeping the giant ape busy, photographs of which bravery are unfortunately not yet available, Miss Kitty and the ship's officer jumped off the cliff and into the river below. They swam some distance down the river, to gain distance on the big animal.
Then ensued hours of running through the jungle to the island's coast. Adrenalin is all that kept them going during this time.
At last, safety aboard ship! Every single crew member was greatly relieved; and a landing party was put ashore to extract all of you (we await your description of events).
Back home in New York city, Miss Kitty embarked upon a very-active social life. She is seen here, with her fiance, attending one in a string of high-society events.
Now married, the happy couple decide to engage in those blissful activities traditionally associated with matrimony. They take a room in a nice hotel downtown.
However, the giant ape has developed a certain (shall we say) fondness for human females. He swam all the way to New York and has been stalking Miss Kitty.
Just when everything had appeared to be happy and pleasant, in walks the big ape! Miss Kitty is not especially glad to see him.
Once again, she is kidnapped by the ape! He takes her to the Empire State building, where he finally comes to his senses and says good-bye â€” returning from whence he came.
Arriving in the nick of time with military and police rescue squads, Miss Kitty's husband comforts her. She later told me she actually enjoyed the view from up there!
Eventually, Miss Kitty (seen here with me at a seaside resort) gets on with her life. I've made it a point to take her under my wing whenever her husband is on long sea voyages.
Some things never change! Now, where are those car keys?
"You should have looked there first, Dad! Now let's get back home and get changed so we can meet my husband's ship when it docks this evening."
Still, in quiet moments, Miss Kitty's memories thrust her back into the island jungle. Fortunately, she's learning to shut off these lapses back in time.
I only hope she'll continue to deal forthrightly with those recollections of that trauma; and your continued support, via your regular visits here, is something she cherishes. And so it goes.
Thank you again, folks, for all your help in rescuing Miss Kitty! Where shall we go next?
