Sammy will be 9 in June (he's the one on the fence in my most recent lol). all in all, we've been fortunate; by and large, all the critters put up with not being the only furbaby rather well

I see another peanut butter lover <g> we got the first 2 cats, then the dogs, then the last 2 cats -- all as kittens or puppies. by the time the first pup showed up, the first 2 cats were almost a year old and secure in their home, and at the time, were about as big as the puppy. Went about the same when dog #2 got blended in. kittie #3 doesn't take any guff from anybody, or anything, so she did fine. the last kitty, though, hid out under furniture for 3 days, and still isn't totally at ease -- startles easily, but when not scared is very affectionate and talkative. still not a lap cat, but it gives me something to work on ;-)

I remember when you heard from her last year. Seems she was off somewhere to do something. I'd hoped at the time that she would start keeping in touch, at least once in a while. Even tho she was doing better herself, I know her husband had problems also. Bird porn? I suppose that's one way to put it! LOL! Last time I talked to my sis, she told me she'd seen two hummingbirds mating. Now there's some porn for ya! I have been outside a couple of times, feeding the birds, picking up more limbs and doing some weeding. It's really windy but the sun is out at least. More rain expected overnight but after that looks like we'll finally get a dry stretch for a few days. The weatherman mentioned that we've gotten over 20 inches of rain so far this year. Have fun on the patio! I hope no chickens show up. =)

They've cluttered up the FP pages so much I can hardly get them to load on my computer any more. I did go over to see Nora's. I sure miss her, too. I hope she's doing ok. She's a fantastic person. Very interesting about bluebirds! If I wasn't so lazy I would have looked it up myself. Obviously you've one-upped me in the "wise use of time" category. When it stops raining I'll have to check the box again to make sure that last egg has hatched. At least there's a chance that whoever wins the Clipper series will be too beat up to win their next series. =)

We must not be as close to perfect as we think. Hah! A break from school, eh? I'm sure you'll use that extra time wisely. Or not. Looks like the Spurs and Clippers are really battling it out. Maybe they'll both burn themselves out and fade in the next series. I've been watching the footage from Nepal and Mt. Everest. It's just horrible. I can't imagine how frightening it must have been for those climbers to see walls of snow barreling their way and not be able to do a thing about it. The ash covering Chile and Argentina is incredible, too. I don't know how normal it is for the eggs to hatch so slowly over a period of days. Sent an email to my sis about it but haven't heard back yet. Didn't expect to, really, as she had a busy weekend. The fact that one of the eggs hatched gives me hope that the other will too.

Well shoot, I left a message for ya but it's not there. Guess I pulled a stoopid and didn't send it. Auntie's about the same. Chuck and Dallas went to see her today and he said the breathing tube was in but nobody was there at the time to tell him anything. She seemed about the same, groggy but aware of what was going on. I did laundry and worked on getting more stuff together for Goodwill. We're finally seeing some floor space down in the spare bedroom that we haven't seen in years. =) Checked on the bluebirds and found that another one had hatched. One egg to go. Still not sure how many itty bitties are in the nest tho. Probably 4 but maybe 5. I hope your day was more exciting than mine!

Well - maybe in time DaVince ( 13 yrs) will 'like' Cupid - they do seem to sorta play but- i'm thinking that Cupid is actually more dominant which sorta surprises me. On the Copper front - he's not a great car rider -- so mom and dad tried him with a tranquilizer before their 3.5 hr drive to the second home in MD (Chesapeake bay eastern shore) -- and he did NOT do well with that either. They said he was loopy after so they figured too much. He came home with no helpers. Oh - and mom says he made a friend of a CAT! he has ignored cats totally and even most other dogs - preferring humans. The home is a town house in MD and the neighbors on the one side have a cat Belle who is actually known to be mean -- she totaly hissed and dissed Linney in the past, but- she was nuzzling and rubbing on Copper and his tail was wagging during the nose greets! I'm curious to see how the Cupid/DaVinci/ Copper first meeting will go. It is likely to happen Memorial day weekend. The best part is - i know it's gonna be all the cats - Copper is totally benign and mellow anad wouldn't hurt a fly. -- of course Cupid just hopped up to cuddel and i'm about to run to the kitchen to bake the par-baked bread i'm havinig and make some dinner. always at the wrong moment -- lol -- watching that tongue as i type this!

Love your avatar . Cupid and DaVinci - not gonna be besties - but- I have seen chases going both directions. Cupid being chased and Cupid chasing! I think DaVinci is wondering WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED! I've given up on having a Senior diet for DaVinch - as he's running to grab the young one's noms like they are treats -- which cracks me up as it's stuff he used to get - -but- hey - different must be better?? Cupid loves to play and he plays hard -- runs from toy to toy - carrying the fishes and floof balls n even teh wand toys all over the house. I'm gonna try him on an overnight free reign tonight, but i'm taking it back Monday and Tues as I have to travel and odn't know that he's ready for full free reign with no one to watch over him. DaVinci just isn't keeping him in-line -- lol! Give Becky a skritch for me and maybe some peanut butter???? **Hugs** kris

On the gif it appears she's getting a continuous glob of peanut butter, over and over. Too bad for her it's not that way in RL. Eh, the knee's about the same. I'm wearing the brace pretty much all of the time. I need to buy a new one as this one's starting to split a little at one seam from all the washing and wearing. If I was a betting woman I'd probably pick the Pelicans tonight, just because it's hard to sweep the first four games. But hopefully the Dubs will prove me wrong. A free-range chicken! LOL! Good thing you've been warned. If he keeps getting out tho, I'd imagine somebody's dog will get him eventually. I finally found an opportunity to check the bluebird box when I was outside and saw both adults fly off. Found two or three babies (hard to tell when they're squished in there like they are) and two eggs that hadn't hatched. Pretty kewl!

I'm doing better, aifinkso. Still have rough spots and am continually telling myself, 'Gee, I need to tell this to Richard.' or 'Wish Rich could see this!' But mostly, I'm just going through the motions right now. Thanks for asking, David. Hope you and your favorite girl are doing well.

Ooh, Becky's gotta love that new profile pic! "The Endless Treat"! LOL! Very cute! Glad to hear you picked up at least a little rain. Too bad it didn't amount to much. Yeah, Chuck's not one for wandering around art festivals either. Red didn't mind tho, being artistic himself I suppose. Plus he could talk to anyone and enjoyed the people even if he thought the art sucked. The sun finally broke out so I guess we might see 80's today after all. Guess I'll dig my shorts back out of the closet and make hay. Or kill weeds. Or just sit on the balcony.

One thing cats do well is sleep, no doubt. Art fairs around my sis's area tend to be pretty big deals. Artists drive in from Houston, Dallas and San Antonio to set up booths and the buyers show up in droves. Must be a Texas thing. You can find some quality art at those things, and some fine antiques too. The rain got uglier as the day wore on and there was a good show going on again. A lot of wind again too, but the yard looks fine. Glad you're enjoying Koonz. A good plot twist along with intelligent writing makes for a good story. Maybe I should start reading him again. Spurs got the Clippers and Rockies got the Giants. Well, every night can't be a winner!

There's a chance of tornadoes where she is but hopefully most of that will be farther north. I did talk to her earlier and she was at her little house in town, cleaning up the yard there. No real damage, just a mess of limbs and such. There's an art fair there this weekend and she's invited a married pair of artists her daughter knows from Houston to stay at the house. I hope all the rain moves out for that - looks like it will. We will be cooking tomorrow with highs in the 80's. Sunday will be cooler and we'll have no rain either day, so bring it on! Great how the Pelican fan described Curry! It almost seems that way sometimes. Rain, rain and more rain here. A nice, quiet rain so far. Maybe it'll stay that way! A lot of wet birds hanging out on the balcony, fussing and preening. Elf is sleeping through it all.

That's a pair of exciting games all right! "Freaks of Altitude" - LOL! That would make a great name for a band. From 60 to 20% is not encouraging. We'll have a nice weekend after we get through today, tho once again it'll be a soggy mess outside. Looks like Sis is getting blasted this morning. I'll have to see if I can find a window of opportunity between storms to give her a call.
