Oh sure, blame Bryan for talking you into watching Downton Abbey all night! "Here, twist my arm!" LOL So you love dusting too, I see! Most of it doesn't bother me until I get to all the bookshelves we have, full of books and knickknacks. What a pain in the hiney. Great idea putting the fence around the feeder. Even if Sonny jumps on or over the fence they should have time to make a getaway. I have to keep an eye out for the neighbor's cats when I throw feed in the front yard and keep it away from the cars and porches where the cats can lurk and pounce. They did manage to get a dove once, but then doves are fat, show and stupid. Still, I felt bad. Very interesting about Seattle's underground. True tho that many cities burned down back then, not only from cooking with wood but also building most everything with it. Our house would probably go in minutes as well, being cedar. I hope that never happens! Enjoy your corned beef! Hope you have enough for Reubens later!
yup that's true. just something that makes my little princess special. not that she isn't already special :) it just would be nice if I didn't have to worry aobut cat urine on the baseboards or walls and the damage it could cause, especially since i'm renting. I guess that's what a deposit is for though
dusty has no problems, never has. molly still has problems here and there that she's had since she adopted me. she'll start out squatting and end up standing up by half way thru peeing which means half the urine ends up out of the box. I've talked to every vet she's seen about it and every one of them says "I've never heard of anything like that" and that's basically where it gets dropped. when I've seen her do it, it looks almost like she just can't bear to squat any longer and has to stand up and I've wondered if she has some sort of arthritis in her back legs? I think I've told you before about my ankylosing spondylitis? and it affects my knees and hips(among other things) well because of that I have weakness and pain and I can't squat over a toilet and have to sit(damn public toilets!) so that's where the idea came to me that maybe she has arthritis in her back legs and can't squat for the full amount of time she needs to pee and ends up standing up. she doesn't act like she's in pain though so maybe it's not arthritis but a weakness issue because the pain isn't there. because for me I have pain and weakness that affects the ability to squat.(more than you really want to know about me isn't it? lol but it helps explain what i'm saying about her) so i'm thinking maybe just some sort of weakness issue. however, how is it she has it some of the time but not all of the time? help me here?
I know you enjoy your time here but I doubt there was much fast talking required to get you to settle in for Downton Abbey. Enjoy your corned beef. I'll be opting for a pork roast this evening. I'll be able to eat off that for days. Becky kinda treats everyone like an old friend and just expects to be welcome in homes, cars...whatever. I've seen her hop into someone elses vehicle figuring "I know what an open door is for and a ride would be nice." Timid is not a word I'd use to describe her. She'd be friendly as all get out but I doubt she'd travel very far with a casserole. She knows what those are for too. CHOMP! I'd share your concern about how a property would do in an earthquake if built on top of old stuff. In the big Loma Prietta quake buildings near the epicenter built on bedrock fared pretty well while cities build on fill in the Marina District in the city fifty miles away were devastated. I'm on good soil here, right near the foothills. They have extensive shake tables published for the Bay Area and you can see who is really vulnerable. I can relate to the calls of cat fur you describe though mine are of the canine variety. That with just one critter. I can imagine what it's like with your tribe. Of course there's no safety harness involved when I'm building in Minecraft. If I'm being safety conscious then I erect make shift scaffolding to keep from falling on my head. I'm about to start on another home after our mid-morning walkie. I've got to employ some math before I get started in order to make sure everything lines up this time. Hopefully I learned something from my last attempt. There's a definite ratio that needs to be utilized in order to get the roof above different sections of the house to line up. I had fun looking at property in Lane County this morning on the MLS. There are some odd variances in property taxes. There have to be some significant local assessments in more affluent areas around Eugene, though I've seen that happen in other cities as well. There's not a straight line between property value and tax rate in all areas. I did see that there is a 3% cap on increases each year (with some exceptions).
had a gud day. spent it here wif all my friends! :D and wif dusty and molly cuddling it was a rainy dreary day so molly was sleeping the whole day and dusty went back and forth between sleeping and zipping around. the kittehs celebrated with nip and cookies(treats) and I almost never eat meat but I went to a restaurant I like and picked up a burger and brought it home and ate it. it's the only place I like burgers from and that's pretty much the only time I like meat.
It is always good to be thought of especially when it is about one of my favorite things gardening or cats ;). By the way I was looking on ebay this morning for organic non GMO seeds from my favorites. It will be April before I can plant anything, wish I had your greenhouse! I will probably start some of my seeds inside next month. I sure won't plant as many tomatoes or peppers as last summer, I had enough to feed an army. Have you ever planted tomatillos or cilantro? I love both in salsa and guacamole but will be new to actually growing them this year. Send me some tips if you have any and I will do the same. I'll be glad when it gets warm enough to send Billy (not my cat) outside..he is terrorizing my old ladies lol
Totally missed your comment about Nimoy. I imagine I'm not the only Trekkie who has the odd feeling a friend of the family passed away. How is the project? Done with the blankies or still some left to do?
