Sickapie: lilyspad: Sickapie: Got an email last night from the superintendent of my daughter's school reminding parents to dress our kids appropriately during this cold weather.  Really?  I was going to send her today wearing her favorite gymnastics leotard, but thanks for the heads up, Captain Obvious.  Honestly.

You would probably not be surprised at what I've seen kids wear in weather like yours....adult supervision is not always there, unfortunately. At least they're trying.....

Oh I hear ya.  The one kid I thought of was 2 blocks away who always wears a t-shirt no matter the weather and no coat. Mom walks him to school every day.  Looks to be about 8 yrs. old.   WTF??


WTF, indeed!  That's really sad, and infuriating.  Those parents are just asking their kids to hate or at least disrespect them when they reach adolescence.  The local elementary school has coats to lend.  It's a small enough community that the school usually gets them back.

It's Thursday! It's Thursday and I'm posting in Caturday! YAHHOOOOO!!!

....didn't realize how much I missed this :)

predle, so sorry to hear about your accident!!! I'm glad you are ok though!

Dear Spottie has gotten a case of the runny eye....just her left eye, running clear liquid like she's crying out of it all the time. Hoping she just got something in it, will monitor tomorrow. Poor girl, breaks my heart seeing her uncomfortable. I know we all know the feeling!

SecretAgentWoman: This is Milo. He has a tooth flosser fetish. I have an annoying space between a couple of back molars that gets food jammed every time I eat. So, I've got these things stashed in the bathroom, by my computer, on my nightstand, etc. And Milo steals them and hoards them. I clean out underneath the diningroom table every so often about a half a dozen of these things at least. Weirdest cat (well, except the one that likes to lick walls).

[i1264.photobucket.com image 850x478]


Looks a bit like my house.  Squeek's not into hoarding much, she just likes to knock things off of countertops, especially in my bathroom.  Floss picks, hair ties, anything that she can continue playing with on the floor.

I shudder to think what all she's batted underneath the fridge.

Pay no attention to the grime and dust bunnies on the floor.

My nephew is a teacher in Downeast Maine. They've had a bit more snow that we have had here and used up their allotment of 'snow days'. His school doesn't get out til 6/20, as opposed to the original end date of 6/6. Not to get all 'when I was a boy' but yeah, back in the day we needed a freakin' blizzard to cancel school.

A generation of snowflakes (no pun intended) is being raised. I fear for our future (and not just for this reason).


i know what you mean... the only year i remember going over was when we used our snowdays during winter, and then mother nature went bipolar the first week of may and randomly dumped half a foot of snow on us...  wouldn't have been much of an issue, but as the buses had no way to get to the rural kids, they just shut down for a day while it all melted...  otherwise the bus company would send someone out to drive the routes every morning when it snowed, and if the buses could make the routes, school was on...

predle: There's nothing like being stopped in traffic, looking in your rear view mirror and seeing a Honda Ridgeline coming towards you with no driver. The guy was trying to get something off the floor and sat up just in time to see his car smash into mine. I'm fine, my car, however, is pretty crunched up.

John Buck 41: spinach gunk: John Buck 41: Buck Manor is doing its part here in midcoast Maine. Here's (from L to R) Ripley and Jasper. And no, they don't care for each other. Of the 2, Jasper is more likely to snuggle with me. They both like Mrs. Bucks lap. Not at the same time however.

Good to see our man in Maine is here representing!

[img.fark.net image 550x400]

I have a bunch of fellow Mainers (favorited in red) but other than iBette they seldom show up here in Caturday.


I have a Maine list, too.  True, we don't see many from this corner on Caturday.

But they're out there.

Lurking.

How about going to help a friend jump-start her car, on I-75, in 5° weather with wind chill below 0°, and having a f'ing snowplow come up behind you at 40-50mph! He pulled up the plow blade and dodged around us at the last minute, but we were freaked out!


Whoa!  Good thing for you guys that plow driver was on the ball.

That's cool.  Probably the most information I've read about so far about the upcoming Sochi Olympics.  Usually I'm all revved up about the games by now.  I suppose I'll get there, as soon as year-end sh-stuff is done and overwith.

John Buck 41: spinach gunk: How's Buddy?


He's not too bad, thanks.  His appetite's still a bit weird, but nevertheless he's eating a healthy amount each day.  Still likes his prescription food (when he feels like eating that is).  Taking all his meds like a good boy.  Things still coming out the other end OK.  He doesn't want to do much walking these days, we only ever walk as far as the street / front garden of the building now, but there are still all kinds of people and things to sniff and bark at out there so I take him out fairly frequently for his amusement.

At night he "walks" with his nose and ears.  We go to the end of the path, stand very still, and for a few minutes we sniff/listen as far as we can to the east.  Then we turn around and do the same thing to the west.  Once we are satisfied that all the pertinent information has been gathered, we go home for a treat and a nap.
