DINSDALE!!!


THAT'S it!  I was blanking until you said it. :)

Your profile pics gave me a giggle.  I remember Pogo from way back.  Goggies got some serious tan lines!

Congrats, by the way.

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Good afternoon Caturday folk.  Been an interesting week here at the B4 house.  First off, things are going well around here.  Job is great, fur babies are absolutely insane, and there is another "date" lined up next weekend.  Unfortunately, there was an accident the other day that scared the hell out of me, but everything is OK now.  Woke up Thursday morning, had to go to the bathroom, then suddenly found myself on the floor with a massive headache and face covered with blood.  Got myself cleaned up, ran myself through a quick stroke checklist, then woke up the neighbor and asked them to take me to the hospital.  Checked out OK, just a minor concussion.  Best guess is that I passed a kidney stone, which made me pass out, then fell and hit my head on something.  Luckily no stitches or major injury, just a really bad headache, and my left eye was swollen shut.  Guess after a few days of really good feelings, a little bit of clouds had to enter at some point.  I'm fine now, face is still a little sore, and I have a little fear of going in the bathroom, but no further issues.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.


Whoa!  Glad you're all right, BBBB.  One step back can be discouraging as h*ll, but not TOO bad as long as there's two steps forward in between.

This is NOT a cat, I know that.....but he lives with 5 of them so I think he is an honorary cat.  Dyson, doing this best jazz hands.  It still makes me laugh!


Nice do!

Friends of ours have 3 mini dachshunds.  Fun little doggies.  They lost one to cancer some time ago :( but the rest of the herd is happy and healthy.

quantum_jellyroll: Darn cats not respecting the sanctity of cultural icons...

Speak of the devil! How is Oscar? :D

Dang preview button.......Of course, & how is your mom doing?


The kitty is doing OK. I brought him in last week when it was so unbearably cold.
However, he doesn't seem to like being inside. He paces, meows, jumps up on me then jumps down
and walks over to the door to look at me and meow.

Darned if I can figure it out.
If I had the choice between someplace warm, and someplace freezing, I'd choose warm and take a nap there.
He's definitely a unique cat.

As for mom...
Things aren't looking up.
Her mental acuity has evaporated.
She's now in the memory care unit at the rehab hospital.
She lost two dear friends in less than 45 days and it seems to have taken its toll on her.
She constantly thinks she's been playing folk music programs at the state fair and she has called
wanting to know when I'm going to pick her up from the fairgrounds.
She played folk music programs at the state fair for 10-15 years, and the friends she recently
lost were fellow members of the group that played those programs.

Frankly, the outlook is poor and getting worse. :-(

Thank you for asking.

Dang! Do you need to "baby proof" the house for yourself? :) I am so glad you were not badly hurt and had the presence of mind to have a neighbor take you to the hospital.

My mother's cat, PC (for Porch Cat) was the same way. Slowly she got so she spent more and more time inside and now is 90% an indoor cat.

I am so sorry to hear that. Having gone through this in August/September last year, I can only offer my virtual arm & shoulder. It is so hard. Do take care of yourself and let Oscar and the Caturday clowder help you.
