The Ice Queen: Little Miss Andi gets to go in for spaying on Sunday since she finally got over the 2# mark. She's going to go insane from having to be chill for a few days but even as cute as she is, don't need any little Andis running around.

Actually, I think she's in the Meerkat stage or something, you now, tail straight up and bouncing around instead of running....

[i1210.photobucket.com image 768x1024]


well, thank goodness there are no more Andi's running around!!!!

Hi little namesake...you have no idea who the hell I am but I am a person who loves sweet kitties and puppies.  Which is why there are 5 kitties and 2 pups in my house.

good luck with your spay!

has been a craptastic week

- coworkers are upset that I have the word 'sr' in front of my title.  I have a freaking MBA and 30 years of telephony experience.  you have a high school diploma.  HR is looking at the new titles.  goody  I doubt it will go my way as the new company (we were acquired) layed me off 6 years ago.  F that.

- coworker who had a fit about my title got a call from her husband's work.  He was on the ground and could not move or feel legs.  He had surgery today to relieve the herniated disk.  she is freaked and scared and it is understandable.  I worry too.  I doubt it will change the 'tude towards me.

- I covered for the coworker who thinks a high school diploma trumps a college education.  F that! (see above comment)

- I'm tired.  I'm cranky (thus the name) and everyone drove like morons tonight when I came home.  A green light means you DRIVE, you do not coast, stop or any of that.  Drive that damned car.

I feel better now.

Right now I am very disappointed with our two cats. There is only one place they are not allowed, the kitchen table. They are allowed on the kitchen counter to "help" with food prep. For the first time in months, I got some take-out chicken (Church's, 14 pieces for $9 on special) rather than cook. Not only did they keep jumping up on the table (and being removed) the garbage can was knocked over during the night and the bones removed.

Several years ago, for a early grade school project where you had to do a "scientific" study, the kid and I decided to do a taste test of fast food chicken.
The cats were included in this. In order of preference (the kid and the cats agreed on this) Breading/coating was removed and dishes with small morsels put on the floor.

1) Popeyes spicy
2) Popeyes mild
3) church's mild
4) church's spicy
5) long John silver's chicken planks
6) local supermarket deli fried
7) banquet frozen chicken
8) deli rotisserie chicken (when I asked for one fried breast they were laughing so hard they gave me a chicken that had not sold that morning and was going to be used for chicken salad)
9) KFC. This really hurt my Kentucky born & bred wife. Her comfort food
The kid wanted mcnuggets included, but I said that it was too mean to the cats.

Whenever we put down several bowls, the popeye's went first. No doubt about it. Everything the same (amount, room temp, etc).

Hugs and thanks to all for the good wishes for Buddy.  He's drinking water again this morning which is a good sign.  Twice today approached the fresh food in his dish and paused for thought before going to lie down again, which is more than he did yesterday.  I bought a yam and some fresh chicken thighs and will try to tempt him with those in a little while.  If no improvement by tonight, we'll get the vet to look him over tomorrow.  In the meantime he's enjoying a good nap under his blankie.

Woof

Could someone please remind me to scroll back, after Saturday morning, to vote this particular post as 'funny'?
Why is it, again, that TFs can't vote before the post 'breaks?
Hmmm, just wondering, Bathia_Mapes, is there a highest - ever voted smart/funny?

They were thrust into a *blend...right now* situation, at the end of April. I'm so proud of these furkids.
I'm still trying to figure out the pecking order... so far, it looks like the baby girl, Gizzard, falls second in line behind The Old Man Koa.

This is Koa. I feed him separately. Turkey/chix/beef (firstfoods), babyfood. (½ jar)..... warmed, of course.
yes ...in a china bowl...on a silver platter...with a hand crocheted, cotton tea towel.

To temp threadsend again at long last, after day that matches altogether too many cited.
I_fling_poo, surely the reusable bags will launder with enuf disinfectant to remove the dog fluid?  Enuf soap, & bleach if needed, if that doesn't wreck the fabric. Was only a little surprised that Plumbicon didn't bring home HarmonyLodge laundry (white washcloths & small towels) from his numerous recent expeditions there.
tigerose, costumes are lurvly & handsome.  FangQ for fetching, FangQ lajimi for needed rotation. On a preceding page, am too lazy to go back & look.  But methinx, haven't you been able to caption?  If you've the wherewithal for that, under Image there ought be a Rotate item. New scanner that actually worx & doesn't bollix scans as old one did, at times requires scanned item to be set in so rotation will be needed.  Not difficult if you have it, quite frustrating if you don't.

Sickapie: Little Pie has had an amazing turn around. Thanks for asking! She is on meds and I credit that and her willingness to take it in the first place for it. She is eating a ton of solid foods now. We are still working on veggies and some more healthier foods, but I think we can accomplish that because it's all texture with her. This is all in the past 2 weeks. So proud of her! Yay!


Sooo glad to hear she's doing so much better!  Bravo to you, the doctor, and especially to the Little Pie herself!  :)

Got a call from my mom this afternoon, my grandparents' dog passed away. Grandpa went up and buried her by the pond which makes me want to pound my uncles in the head (grandpa is 80 and has 1 arm, shouldn't have been doing that on his own but then again, I did the same thing for a cat, on Christmas).

My cousin works for a breeder/shower (she does Westminster and all of the big shows, you've probably seen her dogs if you watch the show). She also does some rescues and they got a male pom in that had basically lived in a crate for 3/4 of its life. Cousin has been working with him for a while, might see what they think of him.  Despite everything, he apparently is a snuggle bunny and loves cats/kids.

This is the dogi1210.photobucket.com. Usually not big on Poms (my prior experience with them have been demon dogs from hell) but the lady who runs the rescue I volunteer at has a couple of poms and they are as sweet as can be,

aww.so durn sad! Please send my condolences to Gma Nd Gpa..so sorry for their loss..I am sure teh goggie knew the effort it took to bury him with all rites and dignity. As I am sure he would seed his place to another, with estatic tail wags, and happy slurpy tongues. He knows what a good home feels like.

Well, that was weird!
I didn't see it, but it sounded like a big-ass jet plane flew just over my house. I'm about 15 miles from the airport and it was low enough to shake the house. No following 'boom', so I guess that's a good sign?

That reminds me of one time when I was coming home from a visit to Mt. Rainier. The military LOVE to fly through the canyons and stuff up in the mountains...good terrain training. Anyway, was coming down the hiway on a 2-lane road next to a very deep canyon on my right....looked over after something caught my eye. An f-plane was cruising down the canyon right at eye level! Scared the crap out of me! And then he went straight up....and left. AWESOME!

yobbery: OlderGuy: yobbery: Has the new electrical service installed this week. I thought I had corrected all the mickey mouse wiring except the hokey wanna-be 4 way switch that runs the rear spots. Never did work right and I just never got around figuring out what was up with it. Well, it turns out it was dual fed, and when they wired the new panel (adhering to code) each feed ended up on a different phase. It was quite a light show when they turned on the power. They got it straightened out but one of the switches is now offline, and of course it's the only one we really use.

I'm going to rough in the wire they need in order to correct it this weekend. It'll save me the cost of about 3 hours labor @ $85/hr.
Besides that everything else is now good.

[www.smugmug.com image 500x500]

Square D breakers.. good ones.... and hope that,s a temp cover......

LOL...that's not mine...it's a redneck repair pic I found on the internet. (good lord you'll never find anything like that in my home)

They put in two Eaton (Cutler-Hammer) panels. I stayed with the 100A service because (a). I didn't have the funds to upgrade right now and (b). I see no reason to upgrade. With everything....appliances, lighting...etc. going high efficiency I feel that 100A is plenty.

...and a cat.
[www.smugmug.com image 400x240]


Cutler Hammer is good.. this house came with a 100 amp service..  water heater and furnace are gas.. don't use the clothes dryer.. conditioned basement with a dehumidifier.. hang the clothes on the gas pipe and other locations... 2-3 hours and everything is dry.. only thing that uses 220 volts is the AC outdoor unit..... no need to upgrade to 200 amps....  and soooo glad that was not your panel....

Hey everbuddy. Sorry I have been kinda scarce lately, RL has really been getting on top of me and I have been lurking so as to not bring my black cloud of doom and gloom into the thread. Which accounts for the fact that I am too lazy to go back and respond to certain comments, so I will just leave a large supply of hugs, congratulations and condolences for those that need them, please go to the white courtesy booth to pick them up.
