Bathia_Mapes: akimbotoo: I hope you enjoy your new place!

Oh, trust me, I am enjoying it. In unit washer/dryer, so no more trips to the laundry room, granite countertops, large kitchen (well, large for an apartment), quiet and well-managed too.





I got my kitchen demoed yesterday, it came out pretty quick. I was removing the water line from the dishwasher when the pipe broke and blasted me in the face with water. My son laughed so hard at me! I made him run out and shut off the water! The water hit the ceiling and I picked up 5 or 6 gallons with the shop vac to get the floor dry again.
I have drawer bases for all the bottom cupboards, no more reaching into dark spaces. I picked out granite tile for the counter tops, and white subway tile for the back splash. I changed my mind on the color of the counter, I wanted the black from Lowes but I was afraid it would be too dark and look funny with the white back splash. Then I found some nice salt and pepper tiles at a discount lumber yard, they are perfect and only 2.29 a tile. I like a bit of a retro look to my kitchen and the grey look will work better for me. I will post pics if I ever get them done!

She makes no attempt to leave the garage, she is happy to stay inside and sit on boxes, when I get stuff moved into the house I will have to build her a little condo out there. Flower goes out and walks around the pasture and then climbs back to the roof to get in, Oma Cassie is happy to sit on the roof and enjoy the sun and breeze, she walks out the door sometimes but seems happiest on the roof.

credit lajimi end of this past Aug.

Bathia_Mapes, am reminded of the 2-day move due to distance between Bad Homburg near Frankfurt am Main to W Berlin, a lifetime ago.  Army shipped a quantity of stuff for us (didn't have to put it on the duty train ourselves) but we did tie a steamer trunk on top of our Opel station wagon & stuffed both trunk & station wagon to the gills for the drive over, via the transit Autobahn (for which Flag Orders were always needed). This was Thanksgiving weekend of 1973, like fools we camped at Helmstedt (western end of Autobahn) as we feared to leave Our Stuff unguarded overnight. Yes, it was nippy!

Now ft of pg 3.
q_j, gonna send the Hunting Moose to cousin in Ketchikan & co-AmForcesNetwk alum in Anchorage.
B'lieve it's gremlin1 I've to thank for the fold kitten .gif.  That's so cute! & know it's lilyspad I've to thank for several, incl the vertical 3-panel cartoon.
Sorry, not a cat -- there's one there of cat on top of car's front seat who lived with poster for 20 yrs, then didn't wake "this AM".  Can leave few words of condolence.

Ah. Slynk fetched this in, has 846 comments, many by folk who don't use reddit either,
like lilyspad & moi.

To temp threadsend, hoping this won't be a 4-in-a-row post, but bet it will.  Horseshoe Casino's just opened in Cinti, we's not goin' there, ever any time a-tall, is planned.

This guy was my best friend for almost 20 years. He didn't wake up today by phoenixannwn.  So it's back seat of car instead of front.  Numerous scoldings on imgur for letting him ride loose, didn't count comments but there were many.  99.44% (not quite) of comments were condolence & sympathy. Also, those eyes!

laulaja: *old friend on backseat*


This is probably all wrong, but I've found that letting them ride loose reduces their stress level...going by the amount of protesting.
They've ridden often enough that they usually will just park themselves in the back window and enjoy the scenery.
Sometimes it even takes a bit of coaxing to get them out of the car when we get home*...they're quite comfortable where they are, thank you.

* they only get to ride free on the homebound journey...otherwise they DO have to put up with the carrier.

If I only have Gremie in the car he rides in the crate to wherever we are going and then he gets to drive home. He sits in my lap with paws on the steering wheel. I know that is a big no,no, but believe it or not he doesn't get in the way and he is quiet and content.
If Jack is in the car with us poor Gremie rides in the crate both ways otherwise it would be an accident definitely waiting to happen

I was on my way in last night from the farm, I stopped at the Jack in the Box to grab a quick meal and I saw this little fluffy one in the drive through.

It ran behind my truck and to the curb to escape the black and white bull dog that was tracking it. I rolled my window down and called to her but she did not respond, she was focused on the dog across the parking lot. The line moved and I had to pull forward but I saw the car behind me open their doors to try to get her in their car.

I would have just opened the door and scooped her in but, I don't have health insurance right now and I had this in the truck with me waiting for her kids meal:

I did not think it wise to be caught in the cab of a small s-10 with a feral kitty and playful dog.

Holy cow... was so tired last night, went to bed at midnight (instead of 4:00am like usual).  Slept until... noon!  Walked & fed Buddy (getting thoroughly rained upon in the process -- it's a monsoon out there today!), had a light snack, then Bud & I decided to lounge in nice warm bed with Mr. Gunk just a little longer.  You know, because, rain.

It's 1:30 now and I'm just tucking into a nice hot coffee.  It's been a long week.  So nice to wake up to Caturday!  A cuddly husband is nice to wake up to too, but since he was sick last night, he's still sleeping.  :)

Happy Friday to everyone.

I think the grass on the cat's side of the fence is decidedly greener.  Those cows look awfully suspicious about what they're planning to do next.

The cat.... well.... fresh milk and unprocessed cheeseburgers, quit taking my picture so I can jump the fence!

What a pretty little critter.  I hope someone managed to snatch her up and give her a home, or at least get her somewhere safe where there are fewer cars and fewer playful hungry pooches.
