Fifty really is just about the magic mark for walking. I can still walk in t-shirt and shorts at that level and be very comfortable. I carry sufficient insulation on my own to make anything else unnecessary. We pretty much stick to the same route around the neighborhood though the dawn walk adds in some time on the school field so Becky can run. Another five kittehs with furrebber homes...woohoo! That will make a nice Christmas for some more families.

Tossing tortilla chips into the air with joy! It came and thank you so much! I have a culinary love affair with salsa and always picking up different kinds. And aprreciate the "medium." And the bowl and spoon are ossum. lub and hugz

At least the first half of the Niner game was entertaining. It's hard to invest much emotion at this point when we've played so poorly, missed the playoffs and every broadcast now focuses on speculation about where Harbaugh goes at the end of the season rather than the game itself. When the dysfunction is more of a story than the team it sucks. How the weather for your walks been? Which trails are you using these days?

At least the first half was fun to watch. Except I found the announcers very annoying. I am ready for the holidays with the exception of wrapping gifts. At least they're all purchased. We Did a Prime Rib at Thanksgiving so we're doing a New York Strip Roast on Christmas Day. Those Prime Rib Steaks you're serving will be awesome. I'm not much of a fan of sauces when I do steaks though I have a Wild Mushroom cream sauce that I use on the rare times I make pepper steak. Normally if I do something to accompany steak I saute mushrooms and onions. Are you ready for the holidays? Your tech friend doesn't bring home his new kitteh until after the holidays, right? That will be exciting for him and I know it will make you feel great.

You're right...it is a low table (for sitting on the floor, which is where I like to sit) with a weak heater underneath. There is a sort of quilt or "futon" that goes over it and the people at the table spread it over lap and feet so that they become toasty warm. Saves on heating! And kittens love it, as you may have noticed! I'm sending you e-mayo with URL. I found out about it by seeing one in a Japanese movie and asking my neighbor about it. I had to order it from Japan, though....

That reminds me I have a package for you! (Only about 2 years old. Well, it's been a complicated couple of years...) I went outside to get some firewood the other night and the smell of real piñon smoke was in the air...brilliant sky full of stars...oh, and I went and walked around the Plaza to see the incredible farolitos, etc. And last night was Las Posadas. You know about that, I'm sure...the words to the songs are hundreds of years old, in the Spanish of Cervantes! I saw uncountable numbers of friends there.

Ah I see, I thought he had flown there. Does he have any other animal companions? One of the vet techs at our vet's also does pet sitting and took care of our kittehs ost excellently several times this summer. I already checked with her and she will be avilable. Just need to firm up the details when we take Brodie back to get his stitches out. I do miss our wdower friend from WA who would stay at the house the whole time cuz it was a nice change fromhis small apartment

Wow, lots of good news coming from San Antonio congrats on the new kitteh for your tech friend. Kinda sad how the cat came to be surrendered but no doubt your friend will give it a wonderful furrebber home. The home decorations are lovely and that's quite an elegant table you set. I could almost smell the noms right through the screen. Becky and I are good though our walks are down. That's the downside to the rain we've been getting. I'll work around that though. She still gets out every day regardless. We're off to the vet shortly as she's due for some shots. It's no big deal as Becky loves the vet. To her it's just another place where she gets treats. She has such a simple and happy world.

Ossumness! Was this at Petsmart or the shelter itself? I suspect you are right on why he was given up for adoption Sometimes happens when people have a first baby and also animal companions. How will he get new kitteh home? Yeah, seior kittehs an blac kitehs have the toughest time. Yay for all the adoptions, Wonder why - but who cares as long as they are being adopted. Am all ready for Christmas cuz the adults in the family don't exchange prezzies and all the gkids get money. ecs are all up insde and out My big thing is getting the cookies made an mailed and that is done Had a big party for family and friends Sat which was a lot of fun Christmas utself will be very quiet as son an gkids going to Mexico again So we will just have Bryan's bro and his son for Eve and also MIL for a Champagne brunch on Day along with son's half bro and his family. Not feasible anymore to have MIl spend the night for various reasons. We will take her out to brunch also on Christmas Eve day so she will get to do something each day. Fir New Year's we're spending 5 nights an 4 days at the ocean which we are really looking forward to
