I don't think I'd like to put in and take out the contacts. I prefer glasses :-) But I'm glad they work for you, and you're happy with them! Why did The Talking Dead make you feel worse? I didn't see that. Those Greyhound/Whippet dogs are so thin! I always feel like they don't eat enough ;-) I know what you mean. I don't mind taking care of neighbors cats when they're gone, but I'm glad when they are back too! I'm always worried something could go wrong 'on my watch', so to speak. I'm all done cleaning and sorting out stuffs. The wardrobe and drawers are all done too! I've been really busy ;-) Sould be ok for another six months to a years or so ;-) I haven't watched anything new yet. I hope I'll get some time to watch shows after this weekend. This weekend we have to plant a new hedge. It's better to do so in the fall. And next spring we replace the rest of the fence. We also plant the tree this weekend :-D So we have to take down part of the fence, and replace it with the new hedge, starting tomorrow. It's going to be a very busy weekend. Taking out some tiles. Replace white sand with garden soil. Anf tomorrow evening we have a anneversary party. Neighbor Henk has been working for the same company for 40 years. And now they throgh him a party!! And Saturday evening Rob (brother in law) is celebrating his birthday!! Going to be a rough weekend all around, I think ;-) Do you have weekend plans? The usual? Dinner/lunch and Mall? Hope your workdays don't drag to much! Did you watch any shows? Have a fantastic Freeday and weekend!!!! :-) *lots of hugs*

Thanks for the congrats. I expected Cleveland to win the first game since they had more rest and didn't have to travel. If the Cubs lose tonight, they are going to be in very deep water though. We got very warm last week--summer weather. This week, however, has been cool and downright chilly at night. However, it's supposed to be 80 Sunday. Nature can't make up its mind. I hope your weather will cool a bit soon. It seems that a lot of people are upset about developments on TWD, so you aren't alone. The writers must be out of ideas to resort to lurid scenes and so many deaths. That's a shame. Have a good evening and a good Thursday.

I know, what a lousy thing to do to a small, completely non-threatening and non-exploitive business willing to set up shop in an area that actually might be in danger of becoming a slum (just guessing because the vandals might not be local?). As I was telling Chris10A, this small enterprise certainly will not drive up property taxes to dispossess homeowners, so I think "gentrification" is just as thinly disguised a racial term as "bougie." Black Sphere is against it, this black cat doan liek it and if there's a way to help, I'd like to join in.

I know you don't live near Austin, but do you have any contacts who could tell us if anything is being done to fix this mess? Kevin Jackson, the youtuber who posted this, is definitely not the kind to yell "RACIST" for no reason. He and I are not of Facebook, so we can't check social media to see if this cat adoption cafe has better security or if the community is helping at all. I will post this at DrTinyCatz. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tqb_0fnBE5w

That does sound like fun, marching bands!! So you did get glasses too? Are you allready wearing the contacts? Do they make a lot of difference to your sight? I've seen TWD last night. They did kill off Glenn and Abraham!!! *#$*## Why?!! Two of my fave's gone!! I'm sorry to say (I know you love this show) but I'm getting pretty fed up with it! Like last seasons final, this epp dragged on a lot too! That Negan guy just loves to hear himself talk.... I actaly got up to get something to drink during this epp. And when I came back, he was still talking!! And the way Glenn got killed was just sort off insulting, being part of the original cast. How Abe and Glenn got their heads bashed in was just to brutal! I'm not sure I want to continue watching this show. I watched The Strain right after TWD. And I enjoyed that epp a lot more!! I'm all done with the paint job, and it looks fantastic :-D What kind of dog do your neigbors own? You mind walking their dog much? Still the same at work? Have a fantastic Tuesday!! :-D *hugz*

That was quite a game UTEP played. They never gave up and kept managing to score when they had to. ESPN online shows scores that update automatically, and that was how I followed the game. It's too bad Seattle isn't worth two cents this season. The Cardinals are no better. I've seen many high school teams play better than both of them played today. It was as if no one wanted to win, and no one did--a 6-6 tie in the NFL is beyond pathetic. Other than a few minutes of the Deadskins' game, that was all the football I watched today. I saw some of the Ohio loss Saturday. I was surprised too but delighted as well. I also watched some of Clemson's tight game with the Wolfpack. Clemson seems to do just enough to win. I don't think they can beat Alabama if things come to that. If Coach Houston really were a fundamentals guy, he would at least have reduced the penalties by now, so I don't think losing to Richmond will change anything in that regard. He's not what he seemed to be from all he said, but talk is cheap. I'm sorry the Waling Dead killed off two major characters. That is disgusting. The show that I liked the best of the ones I quit following because of all the deaths of important characters was 24. When the last season came, I watched an episode to see who had made it to the end, and the only two characters from the beginning of the show were Jack Bauer himself and Chloe--ridiculous. I know Walking Dead has killed off some beloved characters before too. If I had become a regular, I would be leaving now. I expect some major characters to die, just as happens in real life, but when writers kill off folks in droves, it seems to me they just don't have the ability to write well enough to keep things interesting over a long period of time. That makes me lose interest. I hope you will have a good week.

You made the HP twice!! Thats great!! :-D I see why you prefer contacts over glasses. I allmost choked once on a fish bone. Ever since I don't eat fish that much any more. Just the fillet ones. And if I find a little bone in there (happens sometimes), I stop eating ;-) I do hope you're wrong about Glenn and Abraham!! I like those two a lot! Specialy Glenn!! Hopefully you're work will pick up a bit! The days must drag for you right now :-( Did you have a nice weekend? What did you do/and eat? I've been really busy painting. And yesterday and today we put the furniture back, and cleaned up. So much dust from sanding the furniture, before painting.... But now I'm cleaning and sorting drawers and stuffs, I might as well continue with the rest. Like next week I plan on cleaning the kitchen and wardrobe. There were different sorts of pie's at the party by the way. Like apple and cheesecake. I watched the first 3 epps of Lucifer. They were fantastic!! That guy is hillarious!! Have you seen some more GoT, or any other shows? Have a fantastic Sundog!! *hugs* :-)

The Dodgers can now adopt the old Cubs motto: "Wait 'till next year." *** (By jadzia23 on Oct 21, 2016 at 8:53 PM * lol After game three, I had kind of hope the Cubs bag had torn open. I think you two are right about it though. I've never been a Cubs fan, but I did read an article about elderly Cubs fans, so I won't be too disappointed about it.)

Coach Houston will wish he'd done something about all those penalties when Richmond stomps JMU in two weeks. The two schools are major rivals, and it's not going to go over well with anyone to lose when the talent to win is in place. One can't keep giving away yards and extending drives for the other team and win when the teams are close in ability. I see it coming though. I will probably watch Alabama too. They have really been playing well. I agree that the Cubs should be able to beat Cleveland, but things don't always work out as they should. If this team can't win the World Series, I don't think the Cubs will ever win it again. You are welcome to the information about glasses. I'm glad that you were able to avoid having to wear them for so long. The animal communicator was able to get Prudence to admit that Woodee was ready to leave and was not upset when we went to the vet for the final time, but Prudence couldn't understand why Woodee would feel that way. The communicator got her to image the pain Woodee was in and that it was only going to get worse and she would still have died but with much more suffering. Prudence seemed to get it then. I have a suspicion that at least some of the yowling is her checking our obedience so that she can be sure we will do what she wants and nothing that she doesn't want. She may be anticipating the day she will be in Woodee's position and wants to be sure we will handle it as she wishes. I've always tried to look for signs that a dying cat is ready to go, and each one has managed to give me such a sign. I don't expect things to be any different with Prudence, but she may not want to take any chances. My shows that were on were great this week, but several were preempted by the debate. I hope The Walking Dead will not be as hard to watch as you fear. I hate when writers feel that characters must die in order to keep things interesting. I've never thought all that killing is necessary, and in some cases I've stopped watching when there was just too much of it. Have a good Caturday.
