Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: It's been less than a week since I lost my Sake', and it still hurts, but I'm not overcome by it now. But seeing as how this is the B4 home for animal hoarders, you can pretty much guess what happened. But surprisingly, there was a twist. My mother, the one who hates the ferrets, and is terrified of the lizards, and doesn't really like the cats, decided to work with my daughter and on Wednesday night, brought home Mo. He is about 3 years old, and is definitely part, if not all, Maine Coon, which is what the wife always wanted anyway. I know she wasn't a part of it, because she's a horrible actress, and she was shocked by it. I'm guessing he's supposed to be mine, but he's spending more time with the wife than me. She's smiling that she finally got a Maine Coon, so I'm going to be happy for her in this. He's been very skittish since he's been here, so the pictures are limited right now. I'm hoping that here soon he'll be more comfortable with us, but I know it takes time. So say a big Caturday welcome to shiatake, the newest member of the B4 family. And yes, I named him with another Japanese themed food in honor of my beautiful boy.[sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net image 720x960]

yobbery: Poor guy, we turned up the heat a couple of notches. It went up into the high 50s today, which means the furnace hasn't been running enough, which means the Biscuit/Man CaveTM is getting cold, which means the Biscuit gets cold.We never have the cats bathed before grooming, so his cut looks a little choppy right now. He'll look silky smooth in a week or so.[www.smugmug.com image 537x402]

yobbery: Snuffybud: I had more than just those two, those are the only ones with decent photos. Cisco was very helpful too! He came to check and see if I was still alive after an afternoon of whacking boards together!Funny you mention that. I put one of those floors in our spare room. I can't remember the manufacturer but it wasn't Pergo. The floor looks great (as does yours) and is impervious to just about everything as advertised, but "simply snap together" my ass! I spent a day and a half beating the living shiat out of those planks.It went easier after I went back and bought the optional 'HaHa, Knew You'd Be Back..' custom pounding block with S shaped beater bar...but I was almost done by then.

Tziva: Oh Biscuit, your haircut reveals your pudge.

predle: Yobber, here are a few more options for Biscuit[predle576.smugmug.com image 500x347][predle576.smugmug.com image 500x340][predle576.smugmug.com image 500x469]/Note to self - never google cats in sweaters again - it will suck you into the infinite depths of the interwebs from which there is no escape
yobbery: Snuffybud:It might be the brand of laminate. The Pergo doesn't simply snap together, but it doesn't take much work to make it. I'd drop a piece into the slot of the previous piece, thunk it 3 or 4 times with a rubber mallet to seat it, press it down, then (using a scap piece as the pounding block) thunk it another 3 or 4 times to put it into place. I didn't have to beat it into place, it went together nicely with fairly light taps, but Monday my right shoulder told me all about it! It wasn't that I had to hit it hard, it was the repetitive motion that bothered me, both the up/down workout on my legs and the wear and tear on my shoulder.It was definitely the brand. The underlayment came pre-attached to each plank and it quickly became obvious that the interlock was a bit more radical than Pergo. The wife sold flooring at the time...she picked it.Using a scrap piece for all that pounding just got old halfway through, plus there's that shoulder thing you mentioned. I could have made a larger block to beat on but I took the easy way out and bought one. Still, the stuff held up to all the pounding with only one damaged plank....and a floofy Biscuit *sob*[www.smugmug.com image 600x450]
