It will probably be noisy all weekend, especially where you are. We'll have periods of rain to damper everyone's fun at least. Right now I can hear thunder in the distance and the rain is starting to fall. That's really nice about your libraries. I think they should all be open on Sundays, too. But that doesn't look too likely. Elf did have a good morning and is now sleeping behind me on the computer chair. He made another poop but of course I missed it. Still, I'm not so worried any more. Things seem to be back to normal. And I'm still able to get most of his daily dose of potassium on one paw or the other and he licks it right off. The tuna experiment didn't go as well. He ate it the first time but wouldn't touch it after that. Time to make some tuna salad. =)

A glorious light show without sound effects would be ideal, wouldn't it? I never have understood the thrill of making loud banging noises just for the hell of it. I'm glad you'll be able to get home to be with Becky. That's a definite must-do. Elf's pretty much okay with the noise unless we get a lightning strike near the house. Yay on your dad's project! I'm so glad it all turned out well!

Ooh, not good, Buckner! Looks like he should have paid more attention to the ball. I'd bet he's still in hiding. LOL! It's going to be a rainy weekend here. Rain's okay with me as long as it doesn't get too stormy. Might cut down on the kids in the neighborhood tossing firecrackers. Is your family waiting until Sunday to get together? How'd your dad do with the project?
By Fauxpaws on Jul 2, 2015 at 1:48 PM
Yes, I lead an exciting life, don't I? The highlight of my day today will be to catch the next poop my cat makes. =) That's a good attitude to have about your dad. It could have started at a much earlier age to where he'd remember nothing by this time. At least he's still chugging along, humor in tact and lots of support. Got to cherish every moment now more than ever. I had to look up Bill Buckner. Wow, poor guy. The article said the ball just kind of trickled between his legs. I'm sure the Red Sox Nation has never forgotten that one, or forgiven him, either.

Mornin' Popped in for a moment to clear KSO and then get ready for camping. Bryan is already on his way to the store for the items we inevitably forgot despite 4 hours of shopping yesterday in 6 different places plus a stop at MIl's. Finally got an electric wheelcahir fitting and training class set up for her, Then the prescription they sent to the local business who handles most all of the medical equipment down here will release the wheelchair. Felt good to stay up way too late and do some LOLs and thanks for the faves. When I get back I need to start checking out the FPs and new voting pages and catch some of my friends' stuff. ED on the sroll saw project. I kinda get it has to do with their wedding? Have a wonderful 4th at your brother's. I am sure the folks will love the gathering. We arent actually leaving until around 1230 or so nd if I have time will pop in here again. Still ahve to do first of month stuff for us and MIL. Like the msg I left at KSO - no long disappearance anymore. Except for a family road trip later this summer to a reggae festival in Cali and then over to the ocean where we have rented a house. After grubbing in the dirt at the festival fr 4 days, we all decided we needed a nice place where we can take looong showers LOL

Elf must have somehow known I was planning on calling the vet this morning because about an hour my last message - lo & behold - he finally made a poop! Who would have thought a poop would be the highlight of my day. I do wish I would have seen it happen to check whether he had to strain or anything. Let's just hope this signifies that his ordeal is finally at an end. You're probably growing a little tired of hearing about cat poop problems. I'm certainly tired about thinking and writing about it. That truly is devastating to know that your Dad's mental abilities have deteriorated to such an extent and to think that it will continue. It's good to know that he's got such great support and is living a happy life. Oh, I felt SO sorry for that player! That will bother her for the rest of her life. I hope we kick Japan's collective butts!

Glad you got your part of the scroll saw project finished and looking good! Had a much better night but still nothing out of Elf, so much as I hate to, I'll have to call the vet this morning. This can't go on. I'm turning on ESPN now to see about the that game..
By Fauxpaws on Jul 1, 2015 at 1:48 PM
Oh, I don't know. A small groan seems appropriate at the very least. I think Chuck said these other guys would be there Monday. My sis had Direct TV and dumped it last year and she now gets TV over the web through Apple. She doesn't have all the channels, most of which are useless anyway, but she still can see everything she wants to watch. Sorry about your nap. I haven't gotten one yet either, but have already returned from FIL's and now the couch is looking mighty good. Nothing to report on Elf yet, but then he sleeps all afternoon. The lucky little bastid.

That's cause you've done a great job training her. My Frankie is much the same. Oh, she'll try to get away with little things, but she's been well socialized and is such a good little girl that we almost never have problems. I can't believe she just turned 10 last month. Doesn't seem possible.

Oh, how about a big *GROAN* for that funny of yours! LOL! Nothing has come of the tuna oil experiment yet. Chuck has already called another glass company and they'll be out Monday. He called two, actually. The first one quoted $600 and 2 to 3 weeks wait, while the second one quoted $300, which is about what Chuck was told over the phone with the first people. Sheesh. Sounds like you're day has been and will continue to be be a busy one. I'm sure negotiating with AT&T was tons of fun. I hope the to-do list hasn't gotten out of hand and the project turns out well. AND you get a nap, too!

That's for sure! He's had a rough couple of years. Praying that it all goes well on his first day. Last night driving up, he had the right front tire on his borrowed vehicle shred. Didn't get to his crash pad until after 1am. Not the best start in the world, but at least he got there. Now he's gotta find an apartment or rooms to rent for when he's up there during the week. I looked online and it's a beautiful area. Fortunately, a friend is letting him use his place for a few weeks until he finds something. Then he's also gotta get his car going again. Having issues figuring out why it's overheating. Might be a water pump, but he could tell you more about that than me. I'm just delighted and happy for him and that job. Like you said.....long overdue for some nice things to happen. :) How are you and that fabulous Becky getting along these days? Still baking yummy bread?

Yep, the Giants season will continue but the women are down to the grand finale. USA! USA! =) Elf's only problem at this point is that he still hasn't made a poop yet. That can't be good, even tho it doesn't seem to bother him. I'll see if the tuna in oil I bought will help smooth things along. I just hate the thought of possibly having to take him back to the vet again. We'll see. I do hate waking up so early. But maybe I can get a decent nap in soon. I think I'll head over to FIL's house to help with a little of the painting or whatever. The glass guy showed up yesterday but he quoted a price considerably higher than what Chuck was quoted over the phone (after he had explained exactly what was needed) so Chuck told him to forget it. I guess they were hoping he needed it done right away and would just go with it. Well, up yours, buddy! There are plenty of other glass places around!
By Fauxpaws on Jul 1, 2015 at 3:44 AM
Well phooey. Looks like the Giants ruined a perfect evening. And here I was thinking the Giants would win but the women might lose. The Germans were being touted as the best team out there from what I picked up on ESPN, so I'm glad the our ladies nailed it. Elf never did eat his canned food with the paste mixed in. I finally tossed it and gave him a regular bowl of canned. He wolfed that one right down. I hated giving in, but the last thing we need is having him go on a hunger strike. He seems perkier this morning. On the other hand, I woke up at 3:30 and could never get back to sleep, so he's the only one who's perky this morning!
By Fauxpaws on Jun 30, 2015 at 3:29 PM
I would show them to Elf but unfortunately he never learned how to read. =) And of course he'd never take my word for it. It's still sitting there, along with his dry food. We're going to try and wait him out for a while longer. He is a stubborn little fart, tho. I might just have to give in. So far he's not hiding out, but he isn't getting livelier either. I might have to give the vet another call if things don't improve. Wow, a 3'fer tonight! Surely 2 out of 3 is doable, especially since you just know the steak will be yuimmy!
