Happenstance

I went to buy cat food.
A flat of cans,
In the form my cat likes.

And there,
I found two shelter cats.
Depressed.

No longer looking to interact.
Ignoring their toys.
Sad.

Their sorrow
Radiates.

They no longer believe,
No hope.

They are not kittens.
They are so handsome,

It makes me weep.

I want to put on their cages a sign,
"Take me home,
I am for you!"

One surrendered  cat speaks.
I am older, wiser,
I know what comfort a lap holds.

I know how to make you laugh,
Lift your spirits.

My fur is thick.
I can hold your tears.

I want to be with you.
No other will do.
Take a chance,
Take me home.

Into your heart.
There I will dwell.
All the days of my life.

And at the end of my days,
I will keep you in my heart,
Cherish you in my soul,
And rejoice.

sherpa18: L33t Squirrel: ... Well, that and thoroughly dousing the chicken with Sriracha, ginger, and sesame oil in a wok.

Speaking as a Tabasco addict for the last ~ 20 years or so, I kept hearing about the rooster sauce in countless TFD foodie threads. I finally found it, and after trying it, thank you for reminding me to kick the Tabasco bottle to the curb.

/ and now we tune in to see the sherpa in his native habitat, risking life and limb in his pursuit of the elusive sriracha sauce....

[i415.photobucket.com image 280x217]


Speaking as an unrepentant Sriracha addict, I can attest to making and using the following:

1/2 cup kosher salt
5 teaspoons Sriracha
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix the salt with the Sriracha. Spread the mixture out thinly on the baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the Sriracha salt out thinly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put the baking sheet in the oven and turn off the heat immediately. Allow the salt to sit in the residual heat until completely dry. It can then be stored for future use in an airtight container at room temperature.

I use this on everything from fried eggs to steak.

L33t Squirrel: mousiebelle: I second this opinion!  We get the "hot" variety (which isn't really all that spicy to me, but soooo tasty!)  I usually do peppers, onions, carrots, and celery along with chicken.  Don't get to eat it much right now because mom can't eat it - we make it when she's not home for dinner.  Also with the group of rice-lovers!  I could eat rice several times a day w/o a problem!  My dad did that... Hispanic, but spent time in Korea, Vietnam & Japan in the service... so many of the foods I grew up loving were of Hispanic and Asian origin.

*Internet fistbump.* Swap out the onions and peppers for mushrooms and that's exactly the same way I make it. The "hot" is tasty and mild to me, but I grew up on proper Mexican and Asian foods, so my setting for "hot" food is a bit skewed. Stuff that has made people break into a sweat is tingly to me. Though I've never gone into a Thai place and requested that the cook "hurt me." The hubby's co-worker did that once at a place she was a frequent customer, and taunted the cook that "the last time I was unimpressed" when several of them went to lunch together. He remarked that it was delicious, but that first bite damn near knocked him out of his chair. :D


I love the golden curry too, I make it with peppers and onions and whatever veggies I have on hand, but, I hate rice. So I put it over egg noodles. and then I eat it with chopsticks. I know that is not normal but that is the way I like it. I had to order chopsticks from Amazon because the local HEB does not carry them.

powerful katrinka: Japanese curry - fusion food or oxymoron?


Well, being a Californian myself, I would have to say that all foods are fusion foods. At least they are here. Take whatever cuisines you like, mash 'em together and throw some avocado on it, serve with local wine - ta-da! California cuisine!

Real Women Drink Akvavit: tigerose: RWDA I live in the Great Lakes region. Imagine how we feel when people want to pipe our water 2 states away! Um..ecosystem peeps..besides we are several feet below normal, and LK Michigan is approaching historic lows. Not good for tourism or the fish. Now watch, it will rain the whole time we are on vacation this summer.

We've been piping our water down south for as long as I've been alive and I'm pushing .... well, let's just say I've been turning 21 for a couple decades now.... and at one point, an entire lake nearly disappeared. Every time I go to SoCal to visit friends or just hit Disneyland and I see a nice, green lawn, my eye starts to twitch. A lot. Many of us up here have drought resistant landscaping and they've got LAWNS?

I do remember a couple times my water bill down there was the same as, or slightly more than, my rent. I guess if they can afford it, they can water their tiny lawn. Up here I have a huge back yard and about half of it is lawn. The other half - drought resistant landscaping/wild native thangs.

I just realized that the crappy weather back east and our warm, dry winter - this has GOT to be a La Niña year. You'd think after all these years in Cali I'd know that by now. So hopefully, we'll be back to normal rainfall next winter, even though it will keep us a few years to catch up. Then we'll have an El Niño year and flooding. Welcome to California, I guess.

I hear ya about shipping your water out of state. That would annoy us even more. I'm pretty sure we already send water to Las Vegas, though I know they also use grey water or whatever reclaimed/recycled water is called for their fountains. We just can't afford it this year, though. I wanna bust out some pool toys and have there be actual water in the pool!

Heh. Cool pool, man.


I can so understand your frustration! I live in the part of NJ called the Highlands. We have a large number of lakes and reservoirs, therefore we must obey certain laws to protect the watershed - no fertilizers with phosphates, have to install water saver appliances whenever possible, etc. I have nothing against protecting the watershed, but it does tick me off that the water in the reservoirs goes to serve Newark, a city with a higher population than my half of this county whose residents to not have to follow any water conservation laws at all! We have to protect the water so that they can waste it!

tigerose: Maynerdkitty what plant is that? It looks like something a Warner Brothers cartoon goat with pick apart and eat...:)


Real Women Drink Akvavit: maynerdkitty: I guess this part of Texas is in a drought, I found this plant in the fence row this weekend.

Holy moley! I've never seen a plant like that here. Looks dangerous. I'm going to guess we don't have 'em here or the gangbangers would be hawking them as weapons along with the rpg launchers and full autos.

We may have them and I just don't know about 'em. I'm not exactly a rural type person.


It is some kind of cactus, I have that one and some prickly pear like things that I have to get rid of. I may buy a few goats to help keep the field in good condition. I worry about snakes in the underbrush so I want the goats to get the brush down enough that I can start mowing around all the big trees. I kind of liked the pretty red color on that cactus but I have to get some hot wire on that fence before the horses can be turned out and I don't want to run into that thing every time I have to work out there.

laulaja: Tnx lilys for welcoming Dezilith. Wonder if Dezilith  means thank you for letting me lurk and live vicariously through all of you. Sted of precariously?


I dunno, if QJ's had hushpuppies it could be rather perilous in here. :)


Real Women Drink Akvavit: I miss my friends who allegedly had ferrets. They moved out of state, so I don't get to go ferret bowling across their carpet anymore. :'-( The ferrets LOVED ferret bowling. They allegedly had three and I dunno about you, but if I were keeping three hyper ferrets (though that is totally illegal in my state) they'd have their own room full of toys and large tubing to scamper through and hidey holes and swings and stuff, too.

Allegedly.

/*waves in case they're lurking*
//*gives Macadamia a big ol' smooch!*


IIRC, while it's illegal to purchase ferrets in CA, I think it's fine to own them. I keep forgetting to go look that up to be sure... We had them in a previous apartment (they allowed caged animals but not cats, so fine, we got some INTERESTING caged animals!), and nobody batted an eye. Several friends and friends-of have also had the goofy little beasties, and the way I figure it, if I can buy ferret kibble, toys, and treats at the local pet store how illegal can they be? :)

/not again
//at least until I own my own home and can spend more time at said home with them

Been a pretty good week so far; might have a new apartment in a few weeks, the weather has gotten warm and sunny (got up to 75 today, hurrah!), I'm doing well in my classes, and the boys are being adorkable because it's nice outside. Speaking of nice outside, a quick Caturday CSS: I was doing my walk today (power walk with weights for an hour, good stuff) when on my way back to the house around the lake some guy was playing frisbee with his dogs. One of them had climbed out of the lake, but instead of running to him, he saw me and went "OMG, NEW FRIEND! :D" and galloped over, nearly body-checked me, and bapped me with the frisbee. The polite thing to do is to take said frisbee and throw it, but he decided that tug-of-war was WAY more fun. It's a strange thing to be 5'7 and 175 yet get tugged about by a dog about half of that weight. (Found out that he's a GSD-and-something-huge-mix, he was small for his lineage!) His owner was embarrassed and apologized for wet-dog-on-running-pants, but I didn't mind, I was almost done and had laundry to do anyway. I was finally able to get the frisbee free and threw it for him for a few minutes. If he was happy before, he was simply ecstatic afterward. "New friend who throws frisbee into lake? OMG YAY!!" That made my afternoon, and I think it did the dog's and his owner's as well.

And now, cats! Pardon the grainy quality, the light was weird and my phone isn't THAT clever.

Lord Peter is gent for whom my cat Wimsey is named.
CSB:
White cat (neighbors called him "Blizzard") from down the street decided he'd rather live here.
I have this 'thing' about not naming cats for their colors, so I figured he'd tell me who he was.
One night I was re-reading "Busman's Honeymoon" (in which Lord Peter and Harriet Vane get married)
and I got to the part where the Wimsey coat of arms was described:
"Argent (white or silver), three mice courant (running) and a domestick Catt pounced as to spring".
White cat jumped into my lap while I was reading this.

"OK...is your name 'Lord Peter'?"
Nope...
"How about just 'Peter'?"
Ummm...naw.
"Alright...what about 'Wimsey'?"
Purr...headbump.

Well, I was having a good ol' time playing games online and lookin' at kittehs, when suddenly I started having problems with my laptop. I'm still using Angrboda 'cuz a friend is going to upgrade Lilith (my favorite lappie) when he gets the time/comes across the parts. I got Lilith running again after she did the *hack* *cough* *wheeze* "and I die...." thing on me last week, but she does need an upgrade. No big, right? I've got tons of puter power here and Angrboda's doing just fine. Well, yeah, big deal NOW because Lilith isn't home and Angrboda is my last functional lappie that can also run all of my games and if she's going to act up, well, that's total tizzy fit time.

Me fighting with Angrboda:

OK, so that's just a cat pretending to be me and a grandma computer pretending to be Lilith. You get the idea, though.

To make a long story a lot shorter, when I calmed myself I realized it was our network (my son banging on the door yelling "MOOOOOM!!! The internet!" confirmed my diagnosis of "farkin' router") and since our router is older than the dirt Christ himself trod upon (in computer years, of course), I just gave my son my bank card, had him buy a new one and told him "set it up yourself" while I gabbed on my long-neglected cell phone. Problem totally solved, dudes, no further meltdowns required.

Don't you just love it when everything works out in the end?

My opinion of the "new and improved" Photobukkitt. I think after everyone copies q_j's code and subscribes to smugmug he won't have to pay for years.
Photobukkitt not only makes it difficult to find the photos that you want on their improved "library" but they are making it hard to leave a sinking ship.
I used to like it because it was free and easy to use however it's not easy to use anymore and I don't think paying a fee will make it easier.

So why won't my photos show up anymore?? I couldn't get them to post last week either.

Fark is changing the way you post, if you click on the Use HTML Buttons (above to the right), that will bring up the old way. I haven't had much luck using Flickr with the link picture button (just left of the ?) and am thinking of joining the mass migration to smugmug.

When I tried that it turned everything into HTML and the photo still wouldn't show in the preview.

In myfark preferences under the comment preferences you can click on the normal comments display

Comment display preferences:

Normal comments display w/ HTML formatting, images, links, etc

Convert images to links, leave other HTML formatting intact

Show raw HTML tags in viewed comments

that works for me.

I have had it set for this...

Comment display preferences:

Normal comments display w/ HTML formatting, images, links, etc

I post from flickr with only minor hassle:

1) Open flickr photostream

2) Select pic

3) Click magifying glass to open fullsize

4) Click 'view all sizes' upper right

5) Select size to meet Fark constraints

6) Right click and 'Copy image URL'

7) Click 'Image' button in post and paste

Sounds complicated, but if Flicker is already open, it takes about 10 - 15 seconds.

I've been posting photos from Flickr here on Fark for years the same way.

Now when I paste the HTML the same way I've always done it, the photo doesn't show up.

I think I'll have a few beers and try again.

you didn't get QJ,s hushpuppies, did you?

No...I wish! I think it was from me cleaning up an area where we have mini bags of redi-mix cement. the seams were open, and there was cement mix all over the shelf! I spent over 30 minutes cleaning it up, and sealing the bags, and wiping off the shelf. I probably smell like lime and cement. I washed my hands about 10 times, and put on lots of lotion when I got home, but it's probably on my jeans.


My contractor friend used to rinse his hands with vinegar when he got concrete dust on his hands, it helped with the dryness. Thanks for the definition of Flowers coat, I always thought a smoke coat meant that it was a shade of gray.
I am about done in for the day, the drywall work is kicking my tail, I may hire someone in to tape and texture for me. I can do the painting and all but two days to tape and mud a small bathroom is way too long. I have got to get moved in and start on the horse paddocks.

And that is more than likely your problem ... again, the Flicker url/link is providing more HTML encoding than the "new" Fark needs - as long as your link starts with JUST http:// and ends with .jpg , (delete anything else) all you have to do is paste it into the comment box (with or even without using the image button) and it should preview/post (which is how I got your pic to post from your Flicker account)... Drop me an email if I can be of any further assistance.

So I haz a sad tonight.

About 18 months ago, on Thanksgiving, someone abandoned an older kitty (our best estimates were at least 15 yo at the time) by the dumpster. It was amazing he was even found since it was a holiday and only the morning cleaning crew shows up. We called him Bernie and he became one of the "unofficial" mascots. Last night after I left the clinic after spay/neuter Sunday, he collapsed and had to be put to sleep. I didn't realize it until I went in tonight. He and another one get that whiskas chicken shreds on a regular basis and he wasn't there to get it tonight. Every time I went in that room for something and saw his bed, I wanted to start crying.

To the jerks who left him like trash - go screw yourselves.
While I hated he spent the last 18 months of his life in the rescue, he got lots of loves and scritches, and I'm happy knowing they were a great 18 months for him

RIP Bernie :(

mmm....rhubarb (yum!)
Me likes stewed rhubarb, and rhubarb pie (preferably without strawberries*...I'm weird that way).
If any of yas are of the wine-making persuasion, rhubarb makes excellent wine.
You'll get a clearer end result if you freeze it first before fermenting. Don't know why, but it helps.
Think I may need to commit rhubarb wine again this year....


Riktor and Wimsey behaved beautifully at the vet...as usual. I am SO PROUD of my boys.
Wimsey went so far as to make himself at home...got behind the Sainted Vet, wound around her ankles doing the tail-pet and tried to trip her up (this is one of his 'tricks'...following from the front).
Told Sainted Vet that "...if he's trying to trip you like that, he likes you." She's had enough experience with cats to understand this. The Wimsicle-boy is OK...could stand to lose a pound (14.2, but he really is big cat with big bones), but otherwise alright.

Riktor proved to be a hurtin' unit all over however... :-(
Don't know if it's his age (eleven in June) or the fact that there's still that nasty-ass tomcat in the neighborhood and Riktor never backs down from a fight...or a combination of both.
Outcome is that my Riktor Pye will be seeing either a pet chiropractor or osteopath for his aches and pains. Think once he gets over the stress of traveling he will actually enjoy the experience...
and they're smart enough to put 'pill/treatment/visit to the vet' with 'I feel better' after a time or two.

I am SO GRATEFUL that I have this job (even though it sometimes causes me to bang me head against the wall) so that I can afford to take care of my cats properly. If they hurt or are ill I am in a position to do something about it now.


* Nothing against strawberries...I LIKE them...just like them best when fresh and not turned into anything...except maybe wine.
Strawberry wine can be delicious...

I have a huge fear of snakes after being attacked by a 6 foot python when I was 11.  Took three grown men to pull the thing off of me and it was very close to wrapping around my neck.  Since then, I can't even see them on TV without getting squeamish and leaving the room or changing the channel.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: No kidding! Japan gets most of their rice from us, even. Since I'm not too terribly far from where so much of it is grown outside of SacTown (though I'm the opposite side of Sac from the rice paddies) I am fully aware how much water that takes. I'm also thinking I need some goats. Ever since the CalEPA put the kibosh on burning so much rice stubble, every time I go over the causeway (or whatever the term for it is) that time of year, I see goats munching it all down. Apparently the owners rent them out to the rice growers!


I had a good laugh when watching the Modern Marvels episode on rice, because one of the rice farms that they showed was one in Sacramento (probably the same that you're thinking of). It makes sense, because most of that area is one giant floodplain anyway. I remember being worried about our ground-floor apartment right next to the American River and Sac State getting flooded out one year. It didn't, but came DAMN close. As for critters munching the shrubbery, at the Mountain House extension of Delta College in Tracy there are herds of sheep all over the place in the fields to the east of campus. Yay eco-friendliness! :)

tigerose: maynerdkitty: tigerose: Maynerdkitty what plant is that? It looks like something a Warner Brothers cartoon goat with pick apart and eat...:) Real Women Drink Akvavit: maynerdkitty: I guess this part of Texas is in a drought, I found this plant in the fence row this weekend. Holy moley! I've never seen a plant like that here. Looks dangerous. I'm going to guess we don't have 'em here or the gangbangers would be hawking them as weapons along with the rpg launchers and full autos. We may have them and I just don't know about 'em. I'm not exactly a rural type person. It is some kind of cactus, I have that one and some prickly pear like things that I have to get rid of. I may buy a few goats to help keep the field in good condition. I worry about snakes in the underbrush so I want the goats to get the brush down enough that I can start mowing around all the big trees. I kind of liked the pretty red color on that cactus but I have to get some hot wire on that fence before the horses can be turned out and I don't want to run into that thing every time I have to work out there. another photo of the cactus with the red things [farm9.staticflickr.com image 500x282]

I wonder if "he" could be transplanted. Maybe your local Ag. Extension office? Or local college? The reason I say this is that I know certain cacti are rare and protected...would not want you to get in trouble..


I went to the county website and found that most of these cacti are not native, they came in when people started planting non native grasses that did not tolerate the conditions as well, when they thinned out too much the invasive plants moved in. I want to find out more about the native grasses and see about planting them in the fields if they will hold up to the horses. I will try to do the front yard in native plants but not native animals. There was a dead scorpion in the broken air conditioner and people tell me there are invisible snakes hiding in the oak leaves.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: akimbotoo: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Oh, my! The GoGo Beastie is a little salmon hog! She doesn't usually like hoomin fuds cuz she's weird, but I made some salmon with a quickie asian inspired glaze on it for dinner and she was next to my foot, so, I "accidentally" dropped a little piece on the floor. She really, really liked it. I had to fight her for my dinner. My mom was laughing so hard when I finally picked up my plate and ran for the safety of my lair. The cat actually was running after me.

See? That is why we love you! :D

It's kind of funny that my cat has fancier bowls than I do for my fuds. I got hers at Goodwill, one piece at a time, cuz that's how they sold it. So her "fancy bowl" is a china bowl with the gold rim and pretty flowers. I thought it was only fitting to put her fancy salmon in the fancy bowl so she'd know it was a treat and not "everyday fuds". She knows that bowl is for extra special fuds.

She also knows I'm going to give up the food eventually. Geez, cat. Can I taste my own dinner first? LOL!

I bought pretty pressed-glass ashtrays for my clowder's 'treat bowls'.  Gives that 'fancy' feel, easy to clean and heavy enough that they don't slide across the floor during the 'lick this clean' stage.
They know the sound of the dishes clinking together- and it causes instant assembly.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Well, I was having a good ol' time playing games online and lookin' at kittehs, when suddenly I started having problems with my laptop. I'm still using Angrboda 'cuz a friend is going to upgrade Lilith (my favorite lappie) when he gets the time/comes across the parts. I got Lilith running again after she did the *hack* *cough* *wheeze* "and I die...." thing on me last week, but she does need an upgrade. No big, right? I've got tons of puter power here and Angrboda's doing just fine. Well, yeah, big deal NOW because Lilith isn't home and Angrboda is my last functional lappie that can also run all of my games and if she's going to act up, well, that's total tizzy fit time.

Me fighting with Angrboda:
[img.photobucket.com image 500x529]

OK, so that's just a cat pretending to be me and a grandma computer pretending to be Lilith. You get the idea, though.

To make a long story a lot shorter, when I calmed myself I realized it was our network (my son banging on the door yelling "MOOOOOM!!! The internet!" confirmed my diagnosis of "farkin' router") and since our router is older than the dirt Christ himself trod upon (in computer years, of course), I just gave my son my bank card, had him buy a new one and told him "set it up yourself" while I gabbed on my long-neglected cell phone. Problem totally solved, dudes, no further meltdowns required.

Don't you just love it when everything works out in the end?

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:

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!
And Tom's Mom: Forrest

quantum_jellyroll: /CSQJ

Speaking of homes...
The other day, I discovered that the sewer line out to the municipal sewer trunk is blocked.
I suspect a magnolia tree that mom planed right over the sewer 20 years ago is the culprit.

We finally got a guy out to rooter the line today, and he had no effect.
So they're sending out a guy tomorrow with a camera they can snake in to see what is causing the blockage.
(I don't know how many megapickles it has)
I can always pee in the bushes out back.
Unfortunately I have to hop in the car and try to find a public restroom for #2.

There is a major hospital about 1.5 miles from the house, so with enough lead time, I can head there.
The restrooms are clean, and they're available 24 hours. It's not perfect, but it has to do for now.

Well, as the as the tuxedo cat earlier said..."Ruffle my whiskers and fluff mai tail!"
I learned something today.
The hard way. Which, of course, makes it stick so you don't have to learn it again.

You know those metal things they have in the bathroom stalls that dispense those tissue paper hats?
The ones that are kind of a cross between a sombrero and a Daniel Boone hat with the tail in the back?

I learned this evening that those are, in fact, not hats!!!

When I came walking out of the restroom wearing one and folding a couple to take home with me
to give to the neighbor's kids, one of the housekeeping ladies tore into me.

"What de hell you doin' there??", she shouted at me.
I figured I was in trouble for taking extras...
"Just taking a couple of these hats with me to give to the neighbor kids. I'll pay for them if that's necessary."
She chewed me up one side and down the other and said if she saw me there again, she'd call security.

A guy has to poop occasionally, so I guess I'll need to find me some other place to "take care of business"
until we get this sewer fiasco rectified. Ergo, no hushpuppies for QJ for the foreseeable future.

We were in our previous apartment for close to 10 years. It's amazing how much stuff you can accumulate.

Moving is something I do not handle well.
My mother has lived here since 1961, and is the very embodiment of how possessions eventually become "stuff".
Stuff she'll never wear again. Stuff she'll never read again. Stuff she doesn't know what she even kept.

Hello everybodeee!

See if I can make it onto the first page (and if I get filterpwned in the process!)

Sorrow to hear that CJ went to the Bridge far too soon. Don't know what else to say except that I've known your grief and commiserate with you.

This is going to sound very weird...but I've discovered if the I call the name of what I'm looking for (e.g., "Keys...where are you?") it often speeds up the finding. I use this trick frequently in the parking lot...my car is too old a model to have a keypad-activated honk-and-flash.

From a few days ago, he has been showing more interest in people food lately. I discovered my son has been feeding him table scraps! Bacon! I told him it was bad for cats. That is a bacon cheeseburger pizza in the box.



Oh no!  I think Abby would kill for some bacon.  I have to hide it in the microwave until we are sitting down to eat because I have caught her running from the room with a piece in her mouth more than once.  She is so sneaky and quiet, she will even do it when I am in the room with my back turned.

From this morning, that is Li-Ion sleeping next to me! He has been sitting next to me and purring a lot lately. I guess he decided that he likes snuggling.

The Ice Queen: Mine are being quiet, too quiet.....................................................


Cats are like kids. If they're too quiet you know damned well that they're up to no good.
