valnt9: I have accomplished my #1 goal for the day. (week!)
A tree had taken root beside my trailer several years ago. It was now as tall as the trailer. The trunk was 4" across, not a sapling. It got whipped around in the thunder storms and was going to do damage to the siding soon.
I got out my saws-all and cut that MF down. Naturally, it fell on me as it came down. It should have been a 2 man job but none of my neighbors were home or physically fit enough to help. So, I did it alone!
Then I had to drag it down the path into the woods to get rid of it.
But, it. is. done!
I. Am. Woman. Hear. Me. Roar!
(I may not do anything else today past survival needs.)


Damn, gurl! Way to go!! I couldn't do that if my life (and home) depended on it. Reminds me: must get some strength exercise in today...

Djelibeybi: Timid Goddess: maxheck: Question for experienced kittyfriends:

Simba was in a fight recently, he doesn't have any sign of wounds or infection, perhaps they healed already.

But he does not put weight on his back right leg. Mom, who sees him daily and has an RN in human medicine thinks it's a dislocation.

So I guess my question is this.... Do vets have any way to yoink and set a kitty leg? Anyone with experience here?

No experience, but I would expect it to be pretty much the same as a human vet, anesthetic for the pain and to relax the muscle, then move the joint back into place.  Might need a general rather than a local because critters can't understand "Stay still a moment, then it'll be fine as soon as the swelling goes down."

Hi, sweetie! How are you feeling today? Better, I hope - hang in there, cuz we're hoping and wishing for you, fam. Do you need anything?


Anxiety is through the roof and coughing is still very frequent during the day.  So, hanging in there.

Has anyone had an update from DLC?

A friend in Arizona had a black lab called Burt. Burt lived with a small kitten and would gently pick it up in his mouth and carry all throughout the house.  Whenever he set it down, it looked like that. :)

Mudd's woman: tigerose: Mudd's woman: Oddly for me, I have slept like crap the last few nights -- waking up constantly (more than usual) and essentially being awake since about 3 each night.

Now I feel like complete ARSE. I really seem to do poorly without a certain amount of sleep -- an amount that others might consider...much.

I can't help it. : - (

Must be some wierd planetary alignment, as I have not slept past 3 a.m. this whole week. Just floppin around with random snoozes. It's annoying.

Agreed.
And I am feeling almost nauseated. Not sure if it's related. I don't think I'm going to make it very long this evening.  : - (


Uh oh. I don't like the sound of this "nauseated" business.... Maybe try some Chickie Doodle soup and crackers, then call it an early night? Feel better, soon. And keep us posted, please?

My favorite Burt tale:

His hooman, Leah, would wait until Burt was halfway through pooping then pick up a stick and throw it. You could see the panic in his expressions.
"MUST GET THE STICK. MUST FINISH POOPING. MUST GET THE STICK. MUST FINISH POOPING. "

Poor pupper. hehehehehe

Eli wanted out when hubs and I were out plotting up the new raised garden. Which means by next year I will not be lusting after my neighbors tomatoes...oh my gosh, we had one of the slicers from her garden and it was beyond good. Gotta ask about that varietal! As well as how to harvest the seeds. They do it every year.

Despite being all migraine-ish headachy, I managed to put a primer coat on my front door. Filled in the dents from the previous owners with some bondo the other day so it was all patchy with the added marks from the jigsaw from when we put in the glass insert. So it was looking pretty rough. Looks much better now.
Also, it is very difficult to paint doors in the presence of curious cats.

Mah car has had her name revealed! It was super weird, but kinda cool!

I was wrapping up a small job and walking toward my car when I saw one of the local Heathens I know  in the same shopping center. We started chatting about a potential issue coming up in a couple of months. It's not  something that has come up in a while since a few of you were super worried about it,  but I still do occasionally join with a group of Heathens to physically put myself between a different, racist group of Heathens and whoever they are targeting if we find out  about it in advance. Our  bodies serve as the literal shield wall for the non-Heathens who are being  targeted.  As far as total group sizes  go, we are outnumbered about 8 to 1. Still, I like the odds. Especially since most of the other group almost never shows up and it just ends up with a couple dozen of us slinging insults at the handful of frightened, confused ITGs who showed up to be racist farks because they confused themselves with strangely racist Vikings who had found the softest of targets - and instead found a pack of actual Heathenfolk  who are quite pissed about their existence waiting for them.

When the realization of who/what we are and why we are there hits, you can see it crossing their faces. It almost always cracks me up. I would also not be surprised if a couple of them were suddenly in need of new undergarments.

I still wish they'd learn that none of us are Vikings. We're Californians. They should just have some tofu and settle the fark down. Maybe they could quit being aggressive dicks to people for no good reason, too.

We haven't had to do this in quite a while, but it sounds like it may be necessary soonish, sad to say.


Aaaaanyway, I confirm that I am indeed still in, dude finally acknowledges my totally adorbs car and asks about it. Eventually he asks what it set me back and I COMPLETELY blank out on the cost. I couldn't even wager a guess for some reason, so eventually I just tell him "I'll be in debt for a while".

That's when the weirdest domino effect tore through my head in like, a single synaptic flash.

Debt....   That's "skuld" in Old Norse. Skuld is *also* the name of the youngest of the Norns. She is the one who is also cited in the lore as always riding as a Valkyrie to collect people.

HOLY SHIAT, YOU GUYS! HER NAME IS SKULD!

I suddenly screamed "her name is Skuld!" at him because I got over-excited as my brain made the connections, and it made him jump a little. I wonder if I'm still invited to the potential 2020 face-off or if the entire encounter was just Skuld's Bluetooth connection possessing him for the express purpose of helping me learn her name. :-p

/acceptance and inclusion will ALWAYS win, just by being there! :-) ♥
//but .... I chased one and made him cry  last time :-(
///we're supposed to be stoic, fiercely protective and verbally insulting, not "I'll kick your basement-dwelling chinless white trash ass the instant I get my hands on you", so I  was kinda on the outs last I heard

rawr? lol

This cat LOVES the weighted blanket.  So does the other cat.  And the dog.  It's a pretty great blanket.

I've been thinking about buying one for myself - the weight of the old quilt (R.I.P.) my Nana made for me used to help me with my anxiety. Do you recall the brand and weight of the one you have?

As for pet blankets, my babies stole all of our Chanasya brand fuzzy blankies and pillow covers. Kate would make sure to take a nap on every single one of them, every single day! They're weird: they have no filling at all, but are super warm (especially two of them) and super soft. I love them, but there's no weight to them, really, which I miss.


Mine is from Target!  We did a ton of research and then found them at Target for a fraction of the price.  And I can't imagine the more expensive ones being any better.  This is a GREAT blanket for anxiety.  Pro-tip: get the duvet cover, if you see it.  Especially handy if you have animals that love blankies, and it sounds like you do.

Once again there many posts I would love to respond to, but I'm not feeling up to it right  now, so let's see what my tiny brain remembers:

Someone asked about sexing a kitten - it's really simple - pick up kitten, lift tail and look for either a slit or a circle. Fair warning, IME, kittens will fart on you when you do this ☺

Magnesium, which most folks are at least somewhat deficient in, helps with quality sleep.  I've been using CALM by Natural Vitality.  It's a powder you sprinkle into hot water & when it's done fizzing you can add cool water or not & drink it warm.  It's absorbed into your system quickly so take it an 30-60 minutes before bed & you should notice a difference. It comes in single serve packets as well as larger quantities so you can try it without a major commitment.

Obviously you can also get magnesium supplements in tablet & capsule form as well. And plenty of foods are high in magnesium: almonds come to mind.  I hope that you're able to get sleep soon!

tigerose: As well as how to harvest the seeds.


Tomato seeds are super easy! when you enjoy a delicious slicer, set aside a couple dozen seeds and put them in a saucer or small cup. Cover them with water. Keep them covered with water until they ferment a bit and then lay them out on a cloth or paper towel to dry. Store until spring, and sprout. I usually start my tomato seeds on January 1 for good healthy plants to go in the garden in late April.

Eli went outside with us today. He toddled around in the back yard. He likes skulking through the underbrush at the back of the lot, as well as the hydrangea bushes that are super bushy? They were there when we bought the place, and they have smaller white blossom clumps..And you really, really need to keep them in check, or they will take over.
