"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
So, what about all those many, many QST articles over the years about "strays"?

I like your "I love this radio stuff" saying!
I ran across this . . .
One ham was trying to explain the magic of wireless communication by saying its kinda like a long telegraph wire across the country with a cat.
You pull the cat's tail in New York, and hear it's yowl in San Francisco.
Except there's no wire, and no cat!!!
