In every picture takers life there is a moment, a moment when everything is just perfect, perfect timing, perfect light, but most of all the perfect subject.  For me that moment was 5:38 pm mdt on Saturday April 6, 2013

Did I miss something???

So there IS something good about TF expiring. Glad I missed it.

*crawls into thread*

Hai everbuddy, I've missed you all so much! Unfortunately, I'm STILL trying to diagnose/solve my ISP issues, which my provider did prove to me is an internal issue - so I have been preoccupied with changing cables/cards/router ports/software updates/hardware updates/IRQ changes/hard drive maintenance/various wipes and reinstall issues.... and I STILL can't find what is throttling my connection.   :o(

I managed to get my laptop almost up to the new speed, (but I don't want to count on that, since I am getting ready to put it up on ebay to pay some bills) so I am super frustrated as to why I can't figure this issue out. Hopefully, I'll be up to speed (so to speak) in time for next week's thread.

Meanwhile, I have not gotten around to reading the whole thread, so condolences and hugs are hereby dispensed as needed. However, before I go back to my computer issues (or more likely my bed) I want to take a sec to wish a very Happy Birthday to my dear friend Q_J.... and to thank you all for filling in for me while I was AWOL.

Well, besides bad art. I can see that's bad art. A search for "hushpuppy art" returned hand drawn pics of things I'm sure are illegal in all 50 states. Damn, people are messed up. So, I give up. For your birfday, Q_J, I have found you this picture of a comfy shoe.

Buddy update:  Our baby boy seems to have recovered just fine from his little trip to the dentist last week.  He has almost forgiven me for forcibly squirting horrible shiat-tasting antibiotics down his throat as a precautionary measure twice a day for five days, and for my being a wound-up worrywart.  He's still not thrilled about crunchy treats, but will eat them if I break them into tiny pieces.  He's still not thrilled about his regular food either, but we noticed that he has no problem getting excited about people food.  The obvious smacked us upside the head.  Maybe he was just getting sick of the old food and perhaps would like to try something different?  So simple it just might work?  Spent an afternoon doing dog food research online, then off to the pet food store!

I dreaded experimenting with new food, but much to my surprise we found a couple things that he actually likes, almost right away!  And seem to agree with him so far!  He will eat all his meals without delay when combined with either "savory chicken stew" or "organic New Zealand lamb tripe" (only one of which I can dish up without gagging, guess which one, lol)!  Who knew?  Hopefully the novelty won't wear off anytime soon.  He seemed to feel quite good earlier today, he told off the neighbour's cat, and got goofy & playful after supper, both of which he hasn't done in a while.  Our sweet little old fart has some life left in him yet!  Thanks again for all the good wishes last Caturday, I think they really helped.  He still seems a little tired and slow, but he is looking happier now, and that's a very good start.  :)

Sending hugs and love and healing wishes to all the other kitties and humans needing them this Caturday... seems like quite a few this week... huge long thread and I can't remember all the names... but you know who you are... this hug's for you.

I've no idea what's gotten into the GoGo Beastie lately. She usually doesn't like people food at all and will turn her nose up at it if I offer her something like tuna or a bit of salmon or chicken. She has started stealing my food though. For no reason at all. She's been eyeballing it for a long time - I figured she used to supervise any cooking and eating at her old home and didn't think too much about it. Now she's started with outright food theft the minute my back is turned. No warning, either, just decided to start this morning and it's been impossible to put any food item down anywhere ever since. I put down some toast points for something I'm working on later and I turned around just in time to see her fluffy butt tearing up the stairs with one of them.

I really don't want her to keep doing this sort of thing, so I put my camera on my work table since she's afraid of the camera for some reason. We'll see if that works or if she's only afraid of my camera if I'm holding it. In the meantime, if someone is needing a napkin or drink refill or whatever at my house they need to take their food with them to fetch it, ask someone else to do it for them or just forget about it, cuz apparently GoGo Beastie has decided all the foods are belong to her.

Wanted to share a hospital moment with you.

So I was at work yesterday and I had gone up to one of the recovery towers to do some work.

In this particular ward is a big male nurse, totally would not even make one think he is even a nurse the way he looks with his shoulder length curly hair and beard ;)
Anyways I hear him ask one of his coworkers to whack him on the back between his shoulder blades and she very hesitantly gave him just a light slap.
As I knew exactly why he needed this done, I went up and said "Allow me" and proceeded to give him 3 big hard hearty whacks on his back with the heels of my hands, hearing the phlegmn loosen up as he breathed (Asthma/lung issues: I remember my mom doing this for hours with me lying across her knees as she pummeled my back to loosen my lungs up). He turned around and with a surprised look on his face said "Oh! I thought it was someone else given the strength of those whacks! you sure pack a whallop for someone your size! thanks!" and proceeded to give me a high five and also comment how he's surprised I'm not a nurse myself. Hahahah.

I run into things like this all the time at work. People are genuinely surprised how much knowledge I have on a variety of things, how seeing a lot of things happen at work don't phase me and how much I interact with patients every where I go.
That and for some reason, I've been getting a lot of positive comments on my dandelion tattoo.
I have no idea what's up with that.

Not cat related, but how I spent my day so far with the family.  After three years of not liking this (I'm old fashioned and don't have much hair anyway), my son finally grew enough to donate to Locks of Love.  He told me this a couple of years ago when it was time for a haircut.  I didn't believe him at first, but he kept up with it, and below are the befores and afters.  It's nice to finally have a son who isn't mistaken for a girl a lot of the places we go to.  Now the daughter has a few more inches to go and she'll be ready to donate.  Both saw a special on TV about kids with cancer and decided they wanted to do it.  I was overseas at the time, and never gave it much thought, but the stuck with it and I am very proud of him and her.

This is about all the help I got from Tom, he has been going outside and checking out the farm. Yesterday he rode in the back of the pickup! I was unloading feed and after he got done playing in the empty feed sacks he jumped in the back of the truck. I told Fiona to get in and drove the truck from the barn to the house. Tom rode the whole way, he will do anything his dog does, and more. He was hunting a mole yesterday, I saw him sitting in the same place for over an hour. When I checked to see what he was doing I saw a new mound, it had a hole in the top and Tom was sitting on it with his front leg dangling in the hole up to his shoulder. I think he was expecting to snag it as it went by.

Yep.
Fifty eight years ago today, it was actually Good Friday.
I was like 12 pounds and 26 or 28 inches long.
My fingers were so long that the delivering doctor made the observation
that my folks had a piano player

I never could suck my thumb because it would gag me.
That probably explains a lot of the quirks I exhibit.

Thank you everyone for the kind birfday wishes!

In a moment of reflection late last night, I realized that I came extremely close
to not having this birthday just a couple of weeks ago.

I guess that comes from being either tenacious or too dumb to give up.

Nonetheless, thank you all very much for the good wishes!
Now I need to find some caek and ice creams!

Real Women Drink Akvavit: In honor of Q_J's birfday, I did a GIS for "hushpuppies candles", just to see what I would get. WTF is this???

[ts3.mm.bing.net image 300x300]
Well, besides bad art. I can see that's bad art. A search for "hushpuppy art" returned hand drawn pics of things I'm sure are illegal in all 50 states. Damn, people are messed up. So, I give up. For your birfday, Q_J, I have found you this picture of a comfy shoe.

tigerose: predle ugh, isn't it time for the snow to go away?? I know I am tired of it here


Not around here, we are in a deep, scary drought. Hay is so expensive that ranchers are having to sell off their stock because they can't afford to feed them, people are having trouble finding hay for their horses.  It would take around 8 feet of snow in the mountains for us to catch up, so any precipitation we can get is welcome, even 1 ft.  Besides this isn't unusual for us, in fact April is our second snowiest month (March is the snowiest).  When the rest of the country was getting dumped on we were getting practically nothing.

So as far as I'm concerned:

predle: This will probably be the view from that window tomorrow

[predle576.smugmug.com image 720x600]





The weather icon on my homepage shows 92 and cloudy tomorrow. I hate being cold but I will have to invest in an air conditioner at some point this summer.
And I got pictures of my new kitty!
Meet Max:
farm9.staticflickr.comView Full Size

He was my son and daughter in laws cat. My son convinced her to adopt a kitty so they found one that a family could no longer keep. He came from a house that had more than one kitty and he is declawed. they think he is about 15.
The kids thought he was just old and sweet as he would lay around and be a cuddle bug. When I moved in with my kitties he changed. He began to jump and run and play with them. He would get high with Li-Ion and he taught Tom to sit with people and cuddle. When I moved out to the farm with my kitties he walked around crying and looking for his friends.
My daughter in law cried when she saw how sad he was, and after a week. they came out to visit and brought Max with them. He seems happy enough now but is wary of Fiona. Tom and Li-Ion are cool with the dog so I am sure Max will be too. Although Fiona keeps trying to sniff the new kitty and it keeps moving. she is not really chasing him but I toss her outside when it happens. She will learn to ignore the new kitty just to stay in the house.

I think that Nature is off of her meds again. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, we need the rain since we didn't get any this winter, but it's a bit disconcerting to have a day of sunshine, a day of rain, day of sun, day of rain, repeat. At least the type and amount of precipitation we're getting allows it to be absorbed by plants or become groundwater (instead of runoff or something). And hey, mid- to high-70s all week with sunshine. I love this state!

L33t Squirrel: Well, it's a bit rubbish, but I finally trimmed the video I took earlier. Sassy is pretty cute, though. How does a cat that big move like that? One of these days I'll also get video of him trilling/chirping. One would expect him to have a big "meow" or a yowl, but he has a little "prrt?" instead. It's a bit like seeing an NFL linebacker with Michael Jackson's voice. :D

Sassy in the tub, goes to a new window.


Gremie likes to play in the tub too.

Spring weather? Like hell. Barely 40 here and windy as hell.

Hi.. just got back from a service call... biig ol' country house about 1/2 hr away.. owners just got back from a week out of town and the house was 50 degrees inside, and nothing worked... got him to check a few things.. based on what he told me, I grabbed some parts and headed out.. bad low voltage transformer.. caused by a rodent chewing through a control wire.. new transformer has a circuit breaker built in... it will take at least a day to warm everything up.. I suggested throwing on extra blankets tonight and opening windows tomorrow, as it will be 80 .. save some fuel...house is 4 floors, one underground.. and a 'widow,s walk' on the roof....circular staircase goes all the way up...
     Looks like kilokitty is close...

You are so helpful! Is there anything you can't do??? :D

Another doctor reports that in a recent issue of the American Journal of Family Practice fleas were called "hematophagous arthropod vectors."
The description on the package of Stouffer's Veal Tortellini with Tomato Sauce says it contains "exquisite egg pasta." The list of ingredients, however, includes "cooked noodle product."
Only furrst of these was critter related, so I won't plague you with the rest, much as I'd like to. Well, just 2 more --

lethological_lassie: Bathia_Mapes: kevinboehm: Name it whatever you like, it's not like it's going to listen.

Not necessarily true. Some cats respond to the name you give them, others do not.

I once called my kitten by saying "C'mere Milk!" and he trotted into the kitchen. It's often about the tone of voice and the sound of food or treats hitting the dish more than the name. ;)


The 'clink-clink' of my clowder's glass* food dishes brings them on the run.   So does the can opener.
If it's not tuna (and they get the 'juice' from that anyway) I'll let them sniff the lid.
"Oh...it's NOT tuna.  Alright, carry on"...and they wander off.
I don't know whether they regard this as a drill or a false alarm, but I'm always forgiven and left to get on with it.
The long-distance (they're outside) summoning spell of"Who wants a snack?" works well also.  :-)

AND...about 80% of the time, they do respond to their names.  Sometimes 'response' is just an ear-flick...but that usually indicates they're involved with 'cat business'...which takes precedence.

* 'Fancy' pressed-glass ashtrays I bought at the dollar store.  Wanted something pretty for them, just for a giggle...but this turned out well.  They wash easily and are heavy enough not to slide across the floor during the 'lick the dish clean' stage.
