Can't possibly ED everything but looks like all is well with you and Chuck. Oh boy, on the estate taxes. Yeah, I would file fo an extension too to make sure nothing is missed. Easy to get and never turned down. Oh do Ieer her you on thos smoked ham which were elderAuntie's fave andshe would indeed simmerit for hours. The ony good thing about that ws tht a lot of the salt leached out. I told BD I like the sammies more the next day with some mustard and mayo.

Cute profile pic! I love the fact that you have 2 hats, in case you drink too much green beer and lose one. =) A free weekend, eh? Yeah, we'll see. More rain here today and at least half the day tomorrow. A good time to get some Spring cleaning in, or just lay around like a lazybutt. Probably more of the latter. Good time for Bryan to sell that tent trailer, with warmer weather just around the corner. Home page congratz! Love the new comix, too!
By Sylviag on Mar 12, 2015 at 9:11 PM
Sweet dreemz hugz. I just feel the need to hug everyone last couple of days. Losses do that to me - makes my friends so much more precious. Found sone more meorials by cruising various frens' stuff. Yep, will be going to bed fairly early. I have a free weekend to play here - she once again says hopefully :) Bryan ges run of the main puter unless I need it for banking and such as I don't use my laptop for that unless we are on the road. He was hung up on trying to price used tent trailers since we have the one to sell now that son has a motor home and he gave the tent trailer back to us.
By Fauxpaws on Mar 12, 2015 at 9:05 PM
Matzoh balls! LOL! Glad the dam burst on your finger but just have to add - EW! Sure hope you don't have to have rabies shots. Never had 'em but have always heard they hurt like hell. Surely Frisco would have some signs of rabies by now if he had it but at least if they need to they can run the tests on him. Never did get to check for memorials - Chuck got on the puter to look up car stuff and dawdled around half the night. Sorry 'bout that. I hope you're not up half the night catching up. You need your rest! Speaking of rest, I better be off to bed. Fading fast here... TTYT
By Sylviag on Mar 12, 2015 at 8:28 PM
ED BD as usual :) Glad the city finally cleaned up the tree debris. Had to laugh a Chuck admiring the meat - man stuff for sure. We also grocery shop together and Byan gets hng up on met, but also odd stuff. I'll be roling along and miss his resene and hell be back there scoping out somethnig like Matzoh balls LOL Oh yeah, big box hardwae stores find e in the garen department until he gets whatever doo daddies he needs - he knows where to find me. I was surpised also at the infection sine I certainly have been scrtched and bitten by our own cats - mostly during play time. The Deschutes County Health urse left me a essage and I need to call her toorro, Urgent Care told me they have to report any animal bites. I was a bit concerned when I found that Frisco had not had a rabies shot Because he is FeLV + he needs a special kind of rabie vaccine which the vet did not have. But they have his exact intake date which is 26 Feb and he is fine so will ask the nurse tomorrow if that is safe in terms of time or if he has to have blood drawn or just what. If not, I suppose I will have to go through the gdamn series of shots like my niece did years ago. All their other cats are vaccinated excepthim - just my luck :)
By Fauxpaws on Mar 12, 2015 at 3:34 PM
Good signs that the swelling and redness are going away, but sucks about the pain the yukky looking. Sounds like it was a pretty good sized bite! I can see why you need the splint but the sling? I guess that would slow the infection some if it decided to travel up your arm. Hope you took it relatively easy at the shelter today! I haven't been on all day but will check for memorials. Get bedder!!
By Sylviag on Mar 12, 2015 at 8:26 AM
Have splint off for a few minutes to check in. It looks way better already with swelling going down and redness going up the arm going away but still hurts like hell right around the bite mark and is purty ugly ) Going to shelter today but Bryan will help me with my rooms. Also need to get milk, OJ and a few other essentials since we have not shopped since before we left for the hot springs Hopefully BD is EDing cuz I can't write much when I have the thing on. Hopefully tomorrow when I go back to doc, he will say I can stop using it. He also wanted me to use a sling but I trashed that after the first hour LOL Hope to catch up tonight If you see any memorials that I don't already have in DrTInyCatz, please let me know. hugz
By Fauxpaws on Mar 12, 2015 at 6:06 AM
Yes, way too many memorials. I cried for mamawalker, too. I can't even imagine the pain she must be going through. Sorry to hear about the infection. You listen to Bryan now and keep that damn splint on! And take it easy today. You need to get over that cold! OK, that's all from Mama Faux today. We're in for another couple inches of rain today and tomorrow. I really need to get my gardening started but can't do much while the yards a wet and muddy mess. ACK!
By Sylviag on Mar 11, 2015 at 10:55 PM
Even though she was not able to be on hardly at all anymore,I always felt her presence and would drop off hugz for her at David's profile. Was infetio n and on AntiBs and a stoopy splint whih I took off when I got on here but Bryan made me put bak on now. Phbbbt! SO keep this short as manipulatig cursor and typing with left hand is eggstremely chalenging :) Bryan will hep me clean my rooms tomorrrrow as I am limited on what I can do. Doc used magic marker dots all around teh red and swelling area and said to come back tomorrow if it spread otherwise hae to go back Fri. Have not had cha ce to ED as when I got on erly evening, I got mamawalker's note and that her son had passed. Just awful when a child dies - no matter what age they are and I just cried for her. Hoep there was good news abot BD's Mom. Will finsh couple moremgsgs and head to bed. Btween cold and this thing very tired and took 2hour nap agai today but will boucne back quickly I know. O yes, there were hot springs libations LOL will get on for a bit in the am to ED u and BD while i have splint off.
By Fauxpaws on Mar 11, 2015 at 8:59 AM
What sad news about Carol. She and David have always been favorites of mine here. She's had health problems since I first met her here and I knew she was getting worse, so you're right, it was not unexpected. Still, she was a fighter and I'm sure the love and support she got from David went a long way in helping her. I know he must be devastated. I hope BD's mom will be okay, too. I have a feeling your cat bite might just be an allergic reaction? I know whenever I get a bite or even a scratch, it swells and hurts more than it should. I hope that's the case. Even if you've never had that kind of reaction before, allergies can show up any time out of the blue. Oh yeah, open air hot springs would be SO much better than the bathing rooms! Especially with a fire pit and a big floofy robe! A bottle of vino wouldn't hurt, either. =) Oh boy, not much you can do about Bryan, is there? LOL
By Sylviag on Mar 11, 2015 at 8:14 AM
Mornin' Glad you liked. It is such a stark high desert landscape there. Nice to visit, but a little too bare for me. Visiion appt for me this am and derma for Bryan. And I need to have a doc in our clinic walk-in area check a bite I got from one of the kittehs Mon. it was a "love" bite when I was petting him while I was cleaning his kennel. Sweet old tom cat awaiting neutering, but has had all his shots. WIll double check on that tomorrow. I cleaned it right away with antibacerial soap, but it appears to have got infected anyway. All swollen and hurts like hell :) Cat volunteer hazard. They do have some separate bathing rooms with big stone tubs with water piped from the spring but that didn't intrique either of us. So much better out in the open air. Oh yeah, I5 going into Seattle has been expanded several times and each time the lanes get smaller as they cram more into the limited space. Eventhough Bryan knew he wanted another Ridgline he had a gra time researching other possibilities and picking out options - very expensive options I might add :) Hope the scope for BD's Mo shows nothing serious today.So sad about cat_a_lyst's passing, but not unexpected as she has been very ill the past year or so.
By Fauxpaws on Mar 11, 2015 at 5:45 AM
The pics are great! An annual trip sounds like a good idea. Here in Hot Springs they have bath houses where they use the water from the hot springs, which are mostly underground, and get a bath and massage. I've only been once, but that was enough. Most of the bath houses are getting pretty run down. Not quite the same as being outdoors. We've had a big road construction project going on for several years here, widening a couple of interstates to compensate for the horrible rush-hour traffic situation. By the time they get it all finished, they'll probably need to widen the roads some more. It's only a minor inconvenience for us tho, since we don't ever drive in rush hour traffic any more. Chuck does want a new car now and probably a second one later when the Corolla finally starts giving us problems. I thought we were going to wait until August to get serious about buying something but Chuck's getting into looking now. You know guys and cars! I knew you'd like the news about Graham. =) As for BIL's wife, we can only hope. I don't really know the dynamics of their relationship, having not been around them very much, but I sure hope they do the right thing.
By Sylviag on Mar 10, 2015 at 5:17 PM
Here's the hot springs pics. We all hope to make this an annual trip. http://cheezburger.com/8460433152
By Sylviag on Mar 10, 2015 at 4:32 PM
Here after a couple of winters they get these grooves in the roads probably from all the studded tires. When it does rain, they fil lup with water maknig hydroplaning a real possibility, Do you have any roads which are always under construciton? We have one here, Reed Market Road, that has been closed off in one part or another ever since we moved here. One would think they were building a part of the Interstate system. It is one of the few cross town roads that goes all the way through so has been an irritant to everyone. So far ony cloud cover. Will see what the weather report says tomorrow. Oh goodie on Graham - knew you could give me the scoop :) Seems lik the 49rs are just falling apart and it is a shame for such a perennially good team. Mabe it won;tbe as bad one the season starts. I know we talked about it before, are you thinking of getting a nw car? Yeah you may need a pillow but I;ll need a winch to get my legs out and up. Love the Honda for the additional height. Took a quick look at the FPs and think thins are messed up again right now. Don't know about BIL's wife's views but I hope she puts her foot down for the sake of the child. Stuff like prenatal care is so important to hae a healthy baby.
By Fauxpaws on Mar 10, 2015 at 2:32 PM
Yep, mini sinkholes is what they are! And they're everywhere! Sheesh! BIL feels that he doesn't need insurance because, as he put it, "I eat right and I pray." I have no idea if he'll get some now or not. He might tho, when he finds out he has to pay a penalty for not having any. And with a baby coming - you'd think that would influence him. There's just no telling, tho. He's too weird to even try to figure out. Glad you're getting at least some rain! And a big yay on Lynch - plus you're getting Jimmy Graham from the Saints! He's about the best tight end out there and will be a huge help for Wilson. I feel bad for BD. The Niners are losing some good players and not picking up anybody to speak of. I think they're going to have a rough year. So just how DOES Bryan look in tights? LOL! He's a saint to work with the ferals. Also glad you got a car with plenty of leg room! That's big on Chuck's list for when we get a new car. I'm short and stubby, so when I get older I'll be one of those little old ladies who needs to sit on a pillow in order to see over the dashboard. =)
By Sylviag on Mar 10, 2015 at 10:22 AM
Good grief - those are some potholes - more like sinkholes - to cause a bunch of flat tires. So there will be a little one one for BIL and his wife. That should be interesting. Hopefuly they will manage to not mess up the kid too badly. Has he ever given a reason for not having insurance? Or does he plan for his wife to drop the baby in the field like in biblical times? I think we are supposed to get some rain next couple of days; much needed and hope it translates to some snow in the mountain, ED BD for anything else. Yay on getting Lynch back!!
By Fauxpaws on Mar 9, 2015 at 6:53 AM
Sounds like a great weekend! Can't wait to see the pics. And how nice that you'll be able to start letting your laundry air dry again. I'd imagine the fire danger will extend all along the west coast and inland again this year. A very scary thought, especially with the lack of water everywhere. Glad you're able to get those care repairs started so soon. Have a good day at the shelter! We've warmed up but are due for more rain. Should take care of the remaining ice at least, not to mention washing all the sand off the roads. Believe me, I'm not complaining. Well, not yet anyway! =)
By Sylviag on Mar 9, 2015 at 6:18 AM
Mornin' Sounds like you had a winter weekend indoors. Is it due to warm up today to clear the leftover ice? Here we have no proble with mail as they all have chains - as long as one clears the area in front the mail box for her to get close in without having to get out. Last two (an really the ony major snowfalls this year) she didn't miss a day. Think we are in fo a horrendous fire season and water fights over irrigation rights for crops and pastures. There is some kind of heirarchy here as to who gets water depending on how much is available. ED BD otherwise. Won't be back on until tonight
By Sylviag on Mar 6, 2015 at 7:22 AM
Thanks. Just a quick visit here as I never got to the FPs yesterday. One can never hae too many irtual and real cat treees LOL Have a great weekend yourself. xo
By Fauxpaws on Mar 6, 2015 at 5:08 AM
Probably missed you already this morning but have a good trip! Great news about the Honda and the link you sent is fantastic! About time you got another cat tree! =)
