I'd say it's more like the worst alarm clocks instead of the best! =) Elf's fast asleep on the chair next to me now and I am SO tempted to go over there and bug him. Yep, I expect there will be a whole lot fewer stoopy penalties next week. Other than that, they were great. And it looked like they were trying to get Harvin more involved too, which will really help our FF team. They're going to have to rework Wilson's contract next year and I sure hope they find a way to get it done without losing any of their other top players.

LOL! Yes, I ed'd that you actually got up as opposed to not having gone to bed yet! I guess you're just a night own whether you're coming or going. You had me beat too, as I slept in until 4:00, when Elf decided he was ready to rock & roll. The 'Hawks made some incredible plays Monday night but I sure was disappointed in the number of penalties. Especially when they cost our boy Harvin all those TD's! GRRR! =)

It was Hitchcock. I was trying to get ahold of him to take him to the vet. He was having a self-mutilation fit (not a real seizure, but similar, where he lost control of bladder and bowels and bit himself hard). We had tried to control these episodes for about a year with no real luck. He was nearly dead on arrival, along with Puff. We brought them back to life and got their mom to take over feeding them, but Hitch had a lot of problems. Puff was fine after a year, but Hitch just kept getting worse. Anyway, he was having a fit and my wrist got between his mouth and his own leg that he was about to bite. In his state, he wouldn't let go of my wrist for about twenty agonizing seconds. It gave me a first-hand idea of just what pain he'd been inducing upon himself, poor kitty!

We won the Series in 2010 and 2012...I kinda like the every other year thing...may it continue. I guess DG kinda flies under the radar...or at least my radar. There are probably a fair number of courses right around here. It's the sort of sport that would appeal to our demographic though real estate is at a premium. Choosing dinner really is a collaborative effort. Mom usually defers to me if I have an idea. Sometimes she'll choose something that she wants me to cook but she chooses stuff that she'll fix, too. She's more likely to make a meatloaf or a stew as those are things I generally don't fix. stir fry kinda sounds good. Mom and I used to make stir fry together often when I was a teen. Time for walkies...TTYL

Wow...2am is when you're typically still up, not when you're getting out of bed. The G-men will appreciate your support the rest of the way. It's a tough road but it always is once you get to the playoffs. This will be the 6th year in a row that either the Giants or the Cardinals are representing the National League in the World Series. I think our playoff experience helped us against the Nats but the Cards have just as much. It's going to be a heck of a series. There are probably some days when nine holes will be all you can squeeze in so Redmond could be a nice change of pace. At least you have that new one in Bend. There are probably plenty of places in the country that don't have dg courses at all...I could be way wrong about that though. It's a Wednesday so I'll be up with the folks this afternoon. We still haven't decided on what's up for dinner. That's a big decision each week.

Can you imagine us walking with the tree's?!! It's a fun image, isn't it?!! The old one's I help out are doing fine. Allthough the memory of one of them is getting worse. He forgets a lot, and fast. He tells me the same stories over and over again. Somtimes within a coouple of hours. My parents and MIL are doing just fine! :-D How was DG? Did you win? Wow!! 88?!! Older people get ill so much easier then us! Their immune system is not functioning as well any more. Must be a great relief to know there are people that keep an out on her where she lives!! Helped out at my parents place this morning, and got caught in a rain shower. Brrrr, my trouwsers are still a bit wet. Feels a bit cold. I'm definitely going to sent some of those rain clouds your way ;-D Have a happy Wednesday sweetheart!!!

Yes, I expect he will have some fights to prove he is sill the dominant tomcats his opponents knew. There's a proverb: an injured lion (or tiger) is more dangerous than a healthy one. Same thing with Rasputin. I saw him expeling another cat from the animal shelter's compound (the door was open). And he had a fight with Olaf. When I came there the fight was over but Rasputin had some of Olaf's fur in his mouth. And yesterday when Rasputin was at the vet's I had the chance to pet other cats. For example Puschel and Olaf came to me and jumped on my lap (not at the same time).

Whew...every game against the Nats was a nail biter. It's not going to get any easier as we move on to the St. Louis Cardinals. That doesn't start until Saturday so we can rest up a bit. We're supposed to stay high 80s to low 90s for a few more days. Low 80s is the outside edge of my preference. I could live my life in the 60s and be very happy. Have you identified a new favorite DG course? How many do you have fairly close by? Once the needles are dispatched do you think you'll be shifting into an off season mode with no projects? Or as close to no projects as you get? Maybe it becomes planning season for next year...

Well, it is coming together, slowly and hesitantly, but I'm hoping once the VA gets everything diagnosed and a treatment plan can be coordinated, that maybe they can help me out. Glad to hear about Bend, I'm hooked on living here in the Willamette Valley, the drive over to Central Oregon right now is a bit too draining for me, but I keep hoping to get out that way and visit several friends and do some railroad photography. But if something went wrong, I'd be far away from any help I'd need. For now, I keep my driving radius within about an hour-and-a-half radius, with only a few exceptions, even for SCA I want to attend. There are a couple of places I's even be willing to travel by train to visit, it's just the lack of viable(and affordable) ground transport options once I would arrive. Lots of dreams and plans, they just have to wait until I am healthy enough to be able to do them.
