Thanks so much for all the congrats! The number of adoptions is wonderful. Kittens present so well for adoptions - so hard to resist them. Didn't know you were doing a half marathon! Is this for a cause of some kind and when is it? What kind of training are you doing? You go girl! Leaving again Wed but that is the last long trip of the summer.
Ten adoptions is very cool. I love the fact that there were two adults in that mix. Those of us who are somewhat past our maximum cuteness need love too. You've got lots of time to ramp up. When I ran my half marathon I made the decision in August and ran it at the end of October. I'd had a good consistent base of just over five miles a day for a number of months prior to making the decision though. As I recall I made the dailies just a tad longer but started designating my Saturday run as my "long run" for the week. I never went beyond eleven miles in my training but had no trouble on race day. In fact, I still had plenty in the tank at the end of the race and could have easily done a couple more. Those days are behind me though now. I'm still kinda surprised that I did it because I never considered myself a "runner". In truth you had to time me with a calendar for the race so I never really achieved runner status anyway. LOL
Wow, that's great. 8 more into a forever home! Yeah, it is kitten season right now eerywhere and I hope they all find hoes So hard to resist their kyootness. We are doing great. Heading out on a road trip tomorrow am with the RV down to the Trinity Shasta area to camp with some of Bryans HS buds. then home for 3 days and off on another RV trip with son ad gkid to a 4 day reggae festival in Cali and then up and over the Oregon Coast. The kids are so looking forwar to surfing, boogie boarding and beach time. I may have to ust off my wet suit and try some boogie boarding again. Bryan promised he would pick me up off the sand when I crah and burn LOL No I have not, they may be in Engla or Italy or somewhere. I;ll ait until fall to see if I can hoook up with her by email or phone. Want to hae a goo dlong natter with you too after these trips. After those e just have some short trips andhopeflly a very dear friend rom WA visiting us in Sep. Is your house all squared away now.
Eight adoptions is awesome. Eight happy homes and happy kittehs. I can understand the desire to bring a bunch home with you. They're all so cute, I'm sure. If Becky had her way we'd do beach trips every day that ends in Y. They are fun but they do take a bit of effort. I've let the back lawn go California brown as a result of the drought. Now I wish I hadn't. Becky walks so gingerly on those blades of grass now. I can tell it's not comfortable for her paws. She's still very content to flop down in the middle of it and chew her ball though.
Thanks! How are adoptions going? We helped a coupleof times at Petsmart and it was so wonderful when cat and adopter made a math. Our next volunteer eperience may be at a Low cost spay and neuter cllinc and they are heavily into TNR which I am a great believer in. They hae asked us to volunteer (they know of our experiene one of their vets also tried to help and were also rejected
That's three kitteh lives changed forever...not a bad thing at all. Rock n Roll Marathons are always festive events. you should go for it. You've got plenty of time to ramp up your mileage a bit. You wouldn't have to get up to 13 before the event. The adrenaline and excitement would carry you through if you were doing ten or so with any regularity. Heck, you could probably do it now but there's no guarantee how happy you might be the next day....satisfied but sore.
Most people would have preferred it to be warmer and sunnier but it was perfect for Becky and me. Becky always has a grand time at the beach. I wish I could provide it for her more frequently. How were the adoptions this week?
The Spurs sign Aldridge and West too. You guys are going to be damned tough this season (as usual). I would think polishing the silver would keep the hands busy while watching your cooking shows. The polishing won't be terribly fun but at least your mind will be occupied with other things. I saw an article on USA Today Online yesterday that reports the expectation for a major El Nino event for California this winter. That would cause some flooding problems but would bring lots and lots of water. I hope it happens...the water...not the flooding...
Happy Caturday. Goo dto be back. She and John may be on a summer trip -maybe to Englan or Italy. They are stepping down from daily management of ICHC, but retaining ownership They have been at this since 2008 24/7 and are ready for some downtime. I do not think there will be any drastic changes and we can kep on playing and having fun here :) I solved the silver problem by packing it all away LOL I got a lot from my Mom but hardly ever use it. I wrap it in plastic bags and it does not tarnish. Just opened the last jar of yummy salsa you sent. I reasure i and have mae the three jars last as long as I could :) Hanging out at home. Having nephew over for dinner tonight. It ws his birthday Thursday. We'll be home for another 1 1/2 weeks and then taking RV down to rinity to meet up with a group of bryan;s HS buds who camp here for a week every year.
Stabler, Lamonica and even Blanda would sometimes step in to take snaps. Hank Stram and the Chiefs...Len Dawson, Buck Buchanan, Otis Taylor, Willie Lanier... Those games were events. Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised find that we don't get rain again until October. It's grim.
