So here is my day in a nut shell.

Get home and see neighborhood slut cat jump out of basement window well. Go over and look and there are 2 kittens in there. Go to check them out, both under 1 weeks old. One is ok the other has a HUGE open wound where umbilical cord would be. I mean maggots and everything. So we get baby cleaned up some but by this time, mom is mad at me. Basically ignored them for the rest of the morning and early afternoon. So in the house they go. Clean up baby some more with some stuff we got at the store and well, it was just gross. Poor thing had to be miserable :( The good news is once we got all of the bugs out, the tissue itself looks healthy and doesn't look like it went through the peritoneum.

So since momma now wants nothing to do with babies, guess where they are. Yep. I love my life. They'll get looked at by vet tomorrow to make sure I got everything thing,

Yes, they are a bit more rare because the way the genetics works they have to have a ginger mother and a ginger father.

Hi, folks... just finished a needed nap... went to the brewery to do the lighting and wiring on the maintenance room, found that the idiot landscapers ignored instructions again..... they are putting sod in an area by the access to the back of the warehouse, and added dirt to raise the surface to equal that of the building... with the sod on top of that, one good rain would mean major flooding inside the building, and in my shop !  Got one of the owners out there yesterday and he told them to keep the level down... they ignored him, as they ignore me..  so I sent him a descriptive and rather ugly email , to the point, and got out the rake and shovel... the area is now where it should be, I moved 2 to 3 yards of dirt, rocks, gravel, etc. and made it ready for sod... the owner came by, was apologetic, still got an ear full of griping.... my cardiologist would have kicked my butt if he had seen me... but it had to get done.. then.... sod is going down Monday, and I will be there early to see that the company doesn't fudge it up again... told the owner that I was going to put in 8 hours OT for my work, due to them letting those fools get away with their shenanigans...
End of rant....

    Glad Sherpa is on his way... he didn't unpack his gas mask, so he may be in trouble if QJ is into the hushpuppies again... winds are easterly, so fogged windshields and misfiring engines are a warning sign... think diesels are safe, though...

I would have too, if I had been there.  I know it needed to be done, but aren't there some younger guys at the brewery who don't have a cardiologist to answer to who could have done that???  You're a good guy for looking out for that sort of thing......  :D

laulaja: Crrawwl again to TempThreadsEnd to Type, sted of sumwhere in the middle.
The Green Intern, tip #1 for you without a/c is box fans.  By their nature, safe to use with cats present.  Even if you must buy new, not all that pricey.  Do look also at places like GoodWill & St Vincent dePaul; they're occasionally consigned as donations for tax porpoises.
Zizzowop, if I may have few more moments, may think of summat for your Siamesy with white nose blaze & goggie trying to hide in background. Mildly Surprised DLC hasn't done it already --[i.imgur.com image 314x328]Regret not feline.  These grow in profusion this week around here along streetsides. Not a-tall sure of species, not botanist.
USMule just arove with box (not one urgently wished for, yet), bills (never wished for but must be paid, unlike all but select begs) & mid-June note from our old friend AJ, TIDTMC, still in Durance Vile in Rawlins WY.  He sez (edited but not a lot):
June 16, 2014
Hello again everybody. I write this near middle of June, time flies by.  I finished writing & mailed my "appeal" last Mon. Not really "appeal"  but all reasons why there should  be one. Motion pursuant to WY Rules of Appellate Procedure Rule 21, "Motion to remand for hearing on ineffective assistance of council claim."  Finished just few minutes before mailing. Been working on last few months; recently figured out Rule 21 "the thing" in my case. Page each for included "Order" & "Motion" & 48 pages for "Affidavit in Support of" = 50 pages single spaced text, hardly any margins to Supreme Ct on THE day it was due. Yay! Now I can breathe a moment, wanted to get back to all out there & say "Hello"
Got my player, "MaxxPro4" from "AMP'D", mp3 player & email device. Now I can send & receive emails thru website. You can go there & create.mostly free account to exchange email with me. Small cost, ~$.15 per message. If cost an issue, we can work it out. But please do at least create an account so I can email with you.  Website is here . Tal ...


I've always know those flowers as Blue Corn Flower or Bachelor Buttons. they often grow wild along roadsides.

TGIC! I just got to catch up on the thread and I honestly can't remember whether I finished reading the one from last week... The kid and I went to the local Saturday market today (it's more than a farmers' market... takes up basically all of downtown.  We wandered around for a good hour and a half or two hours... something like that.  Ended up buying a huge bag of Yerba Mate and some nommy local honey.  Even handed out a few of our business cards! The kid is currently helping the guy set up the PA system in preparation for his gig tonight, which is why I was able to get caught up with this week so far.  Gotta get up stupid early tomorrow because the kid decided to volunteer to help out with the local marathon and the guy will be sacked out after the gig (not getting home until 2 am & unable to fall asleep for a few hours after doesn't bode well for him trying to be up around 8 am...)  I love having her here :)  Keeps me on my toes and doesn't allow me to wallow a whole lot with the pain stuff.

The cats are sleeping in their tree next to the open window.  As we live in the basement, it gets incredibly cold when the AC is running.  They like the open window and sunlight :)  Lars has even lost 2 lbs!!! The kid and guy weighed him this week.  We'd changed to an "indoor" food (Wellness CORE Indoor) in hopes that he'd lose a bit of the pudge.  He's being more active and the weight loss is great!  He's now about 18 lbs instead of a tad over 20.  He's a huge cat anyway, so all I'm hoping for is a decrease to around maybe 15 lbs...  Cassie weighs in at 13 and there's not an ounce of fat.  How did I end up with huge cats?!

Ok, I'll shut up now.  Here's an old cat pic or few to make up for all the words.  Glad sherpa is on the road!!! I wish he was going a bit more west than he is... I'd love to meet him!!

PSA: If you must hike in the mountains during monsoon season be sure to do it in the morning. Yesterday 8 people were struck by lightening (1 killed) in RMNP, just heard more people were struck today. It's particularly dangerous to be above timber line, since that means you will no doubt be the tallest thing around if it starts to storm.

This is a Newfoundland dog. They are awesome. Although it is not a cat (It is a dog), they are extremely friendly.

They do two things of extreme interest. They drool like no ones business. Which is awesome. They are super-family oriented. And, they like to swim like no one's business. In fact, they have webbed front paws. (That's three things... shhhh, tell no one)

Ha ha thanks!  Just one shrub in my yard here in RI.  Mom got it for me years ago and I put no thought into where I planted it.  Just tossed it in the yard.... Its clearly VERY happy and producing like mad!  Must have netting of course, else we'd get no berries and the birds'd be fat fat....  the Mister made a contraption outta PVC piping to hold the netting and allows harvest access... worked well...

the mister just got home and is excited to make his blueberry cake (yep, he cooks too!)

yobbery: Biscuit is still traumatized.

What a traumatized Biscuit may look like.
[www.smugmug.com image 600x450]


Poor Biscuit! If you don't mind me asking, what should I expect price-wise for a cat bath/clip down? Do you get a bath with his haircut? What about nail trim? I ask because I am trying to be prepared and work on my budget for next month/see how hard I have to work this month. (hehe!) Gogh Beastie will be doing the "Trauma is teh secksay" pose himself then, because homeboy is having a spa day whether he likes it or not. He's not been taking care of himself and grooming like he used to, isn't just yelling at me when I try and bathe him - he gets MAD and tries to sincerely injure me - and because of his injury still healing up, won't even let me brush him. Mah boy has mats in his furs! Especially on his belleh. :'-(

I can't afford to take Gogh Beastie in to the groomer this month or I would. We had too many other things go south on us this month right from the start, not just cat drama, and strange and frightening as it sounds I'm the only one in the house still standing financially at this point. Gogh's mats aren't bad at all right now, but I don't want us to injure each other and I don't want them to get bad, so it needs to be done. If they were bad, I'd just tell my family "well, a lot of churches feed the poor and the homeless once a week, so we don't need to actually buy food if we pretend to be the right kind of Christian" and off to the Critter spa we'd go! Priorities, yo. :-)

*remarkably good luck*

That's some mighty fine Orlog you must have there, my friend. That stuff comes in handy when you need luck! YAY!!! for City Vets and Orange and misdialing!

ProcrastinationStation: Just back in from blueberry harvest....  I got  4 POUNDS of blueberries!!  AND the damn bush has about 1.5 trillion non-ripe berries gearing up for the next go 'round.  One 6' blueberry bush is giving us more berries than we can handle!

I think its time to learn how to make jam....

Also, went to Farmer's Market today.. met adult male Berner there...  CANNOT believe that is my future!  Was too busy talking to his humans and asking questions to get a pic of big 'n little together.  Cooper was so teeeny next to this guy!  OMG.

Happy to see  Sherpa finally on the move....

/drive by post
//back to housework
///three for luck!

Was Cooper impressed by his future self? That had to be too adorable.

Mrs CDK: CDK is over there stocking the fridge and the cabinets with all the important things in life. Things like bread, butter, eggs, bacon, milk, coffee, sugar, RUM...

Do not furget the pineapple chunks in real juice and coconut milk. You can freeze the pineapple chunks, save the juice and then toss together some kickin' Pina Coladas later with the juice and coconut milk, plenty of rum and then blended/thickened with the frozen pineapple chunks. I make mine super thick - like ice cream - and they are delicious. (I also add a bit of vanilla bean paste and a pinch of salt to mine to enhance the flavor).

[favim.com image 500x279]


Pina coladas are the only rum drink and that sounds uber good.
