Glad you are enjoying your vacation. I'm ready for one already. LOL Thank you for the cold breezes. We need them here. I did see the Doctor. I'm sure it was even better on the big screen. I loved the opening with the dinosaur having a TARDIS ball. Someone who has cats had to have thought of that. I hope everything will work out well for Bella to have a sanctuary with you. That's sad that she is being picked on at her home. I love magnolias, and your kind gift has given me an extra spring this year! Many thanks. The purrs are icing on the cake. Everyone with a garden here is loaded with squash, so I'm sending you an assortment of various types. If squash isn't your thing, you can pass them along to someone who enjoys them. My favorite is the tender yellow squash. I love them cut up in scrambled eggs. I'm weird--I know. I hope you keep right on having a great holiday and that you will get lots of rest between chores and have lots of time with the bois and Bella.

I'm sorry you will have to wait to get a solar battery recharger. I never thought about using the spiraled wire from a notebook. That's a great idea! These curliques are softer and a bit larger than wire, but I know the wire will work just as well and will remember that when all the curliques have disappeared into another dimension (all kittehs are Time Lords and don't even need a TARDIS). I'm sorry your weather is miserable. Ours is miserable too--cloudy, rain off and on, and horrid humidity. There was no AC on my hall this week, and it was terrible. This morning after the usual morning chores, I plopped myself down in a chair in front of an AC vent and enjoyed cool air and just vegetated. Thank you for the lovely freesias! I will wait until I know the AC is fixed to take them to school. They may want warm weather, but that sauna will be too much for them. No, I'm not going to a theatre to watch DOCTOR WHO. I'm too pooped to go out and want to sit in my recliner and enjoy the show at home. I hope you see the first showing and have a great time. I'm not about to bet against your predictions. I agree with them! Oh, I forgot to mention that I knocked the top off the lizard's box when I picked up the freesias, and he ran off I know not where, but two kittehs have been sniffing around and making strange sounds ever since. I'm sending you a big bag of peanut M&Ms, one of my favorite stress foods, and Woodee just came running into the room with a fuzzy ball filled with nip for Tabini and Fanta.

I think you are absolutely right that we are due a good head slap for the mess we've made and continue to make on this planet. Those solar chargers are neat, but they certainly aren't cheap. I'm glad you are starting to figure out what to do with your Saturdays and are enjoying them. Thank you so much for all the goodies. They smell and look delicious. It's almost lunch time, so CL and I will be enjoying ours soon. I understand your pins and needles. Gizmo, the kitteh in my profile picture, loved to be held--and held, and held. We would hold her until we couldn't feel our arms and hands and then hold out a bit longer. She still gave us a look of great hurt when we set her down. LOL! Many thanks to Tabini for the purrs and bonks. Those are always most welcome. Woodee is sending the bois a set of soft plastic curliques. They are like over-sized springs but are soft and easy for a cat to pick up and carry (but too big to swallow), and they roll in interesting ways when swatted. All the cats here have loved them, but I can't find them for sale anywhere now. It's a good thing I bought a lot when they were around. For you there is an assortment of tomatoes, squash, corn on the cob, and green beans fresh from a friend's garden. I'm anxious for next Saturday to arrive--first episode of the new season of DOCTOR WHO!!! Have a good week.

Wow, early spring! Other than the rotten storms, that sounds great. We have been having comfortable temperatures, and that is unheard of in this area in August. I don't know what is up with Mama Nature, but I like what's she's doing at the moment. We went back last week for prep days and have all of this week for that too. The problem is the days are really more meeting days than prep, and it's a real effort to have things ready on time. All that work I did this summer needs to be copied for student use, and I haven't had a moment to do that yet. Hubcat is progressing. He feeds and waters the ferals, and Thursday when I came home, he had vacuumed. Hooray! What I'm really hoping will happen before much longer is that he can get groceries again. That would give me a my Saturdays back. It has been years since I've had full weekends, and that gets old during the school year. I'm enjoying the delicious pudding, although I know it's not intended to be breakfast food. Prudence and Woodee are giving me strange looks. LOL I love the daisies too. Daisies here are long gone for this year. Hydrangeas are blooming though, and I'm sending you a vase filled with huge blooms. Here they come. (I ate only one bowl of pudding. CL will get the other.) Woodee and Prudence send purrs.

U r very welcome to teh giftees! The skritches will be delivered shortly. Both cats are sound asleep on the bed at the moment. Your possums are cute, but I'm sorry they are eating your plants and carry a dangerous cow disease. Thanks for the information about them. I agree with Jack that it's not a good idea for Heather to have those possums. It sounds as though Bella might be a gud candiate to come live wif you if she and Fanta can get along. That's a great idea to have her for a trial stay while you are on holiday, and I hope it will work out. It's wonderful to know that Fanta and Tabini are buddies again. Maybe that was why Katsanova came for a while--to bring them to friendship again. Thank you for the cool rain and the lovely magnolias. I love them. For when the warm spell ends, I am sending a box of pillows filled with sun warmed catnip for the bois and for you a sealed plastic bag of fresh, warm sea breezes a friend on the coast captured for me. Here they come.

I'm sorry to hear that Katsanova is still AWOL. Maybe he went to Florida for the winter? I'm glad that Fanta and Tabini are back to their old selves. The Farm Cats have had a scare with Cicero. He had a lump under his fur that they thought at first might be a tumor, but the Vet did a biopsy and doesn\t think it's cancerous. Sometimes kittehs just develop these lumps that can be taken out with no further damage beyond an interesting scar. We're having a very mild summer, but the farm cats are storing the chillybin in the cellar until the humidity gets stupid again. They collected some freshly mown hay from the neighbour's field and set it in the sun before they packed it. It should be nice and warm for napping on. (Sends crate of hay)

Hai SP. EDing and I still have Katsanova in my return home prayers. Just a little time here because we leave for another 2 week trip on Wed. Squee Willie sending purrs an hugz tu Fanta an Tabini. Ai sending u a comfy hugz blankie wich purrz wen u rap up in it. Along wid a peppermint schnapps kandy kane. Raps up blankie wid Squee an kane. Ties not an puts on convayor belt hook an pushes buttun. xoxo

I hope Katsanova will yet return. I've seen news clips about cats that returned months after going missing and some even after years. All fingers and paws are still crossed he will be back in the near future. I'm glad that in the meantime Tabini is dealing with Fanta and not taking any mess from him. Are the possums Heather has taken babies? I once thought possums were scary looking because of all the teeth and didn't much care for them ( wouldn't harm them though). Then the Wildlife Center ended up with a possum that couldn't be released, named her Phoebe, and began training her to be a teaching animal to be taken to schools, libraries, etc. They made a video of one of her training sessions, and I fell in love. I'm not going out and adopting possums (illegal in this state anyway unless one is a licensed animal rehabilitator, which I am not). I will, however, be one of her sponsors. I've also learned that possums eat ticks, and that makes them all right with me. I hope Jack won't let Heather take on more animals than she can properly care for. If these are baby possums, I also hope she is preparing them for release when they are old enough. I thank you and the bois very much for the bootiful windsocks and have them flying in the yard. Gizmo would be honored that they were made in her honor. Thank you for the congratz and the delicious cookie! I had to fight Woodee for it--kept telling her that kittehs can't have chocolate, but I don't think she believes me. She and Prudence picked some big red hibiscus blooms to send you, and they pulled out some cans of albacore toona packed in water for Tabini and Fanta. Here they come. And here is the link to Phoebe's training video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvGEJxtGkHg
