Mornin, how is every little thing going? Alll good here, settling into Fall moe. Bryan went fishing for a couple of days and I worked on a yard cleanup project.

By Sylviag on Sep 26, 2014 at 7:25 PM

Thanks! Did you see the great GIFs of Cali cataff did? Glad you got air back. Is it still pretty hot there? Mostly took nothing but people pics but have some of all the kids I will share. Just so great to see them all having a good time. I have so many good memories of camping. Everyone shud be so lucky to have an IT friend :) You two cook together also don't you, or am I confused? Have any cooking demonstrations planned for fall? Yeah, just strange she popped in intending to stay and then left again.

Congratz onna FP! Glad you're back, The A/C was fixed the next day. Sounds like you had a great camping trip - do we get to see any pics? My IT friend is coming into town this weekend, so I am hoping to get some lessons on how to use the new phone, specifically how to post some great pics I have from my trip :-) I am going to give Bets a call next week...

By Sylviag on Sep 25, 2014 at 10:56 PM

You came back while we were gone again Hope you got your AC fixed. We shut ours down as it has been getting cool enough not to need it. Firt snow ont he mutain last night. Last 5 day camping trip of the season and it was ossum. 30 people and kids made it for most all the days, community cooking, water fun, lots of campfires, games, drumming. Had it all :) Did you get to see a lot of old friends in Cali? Do anything specia lwhile you were there? I bet Kibby and Chessie were glad to see you back. We still hve old school qwertt cells. Draggng our feet on getting smarty phones for various reasons. Nope on Betsy. She came on line to say she was back and then disappeared again :(

I'm baaaack!! Had a GREAT vacay, and came home to the downstairs A/C borked.... Repair guys are on the way - just hope they can fix it today. If not, I may be moving upstairs until it's fixed *sigh*. Got a new 'silly apple iphone' while I was on vacay... trying to figure out how to use it. Got some greast pics, too. How are you doing? Did I miss anything important :-) ? Have you heard from Bets lately?

By Sylviag on Sep 7, 2014 at 12:45 AM

Hey grulfren what are you doing up so early?

By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 1:42 PM

Have a wonderful visit - sounds like lots of fun stuff. SO nice to have someone you can trust to take care of the fur babehs. Yep (as far as we know). Only a 4 day camping trip planned 3d week of Sep with a bunch of people. COld weather wont be long in coming here. It changes rather abruptly from summer to winter with a brief fall inbetween. Ready to nestle in :)

By catmom on Sep 6, 2014 at 8:58 AM

Goo0d mornin, Syl! Leaving for Cali next week - I can't wait. Missing my friends and the lovely weather. BD party for a friend included in the mix, along with other fun activities! This is the first time Kibby and Chessie will be left alone because last year my friends came here for a visit. My gal pal four doors down will take care of them while I'm gone. We cat sit for eachother when we're out of town - we actually plan our vacations so that one of us will be home to take care of our cats! She will also feed my ferals. Are you guys home for the rest of the year?

By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 12:00 AM

I know, muchly my fault for not making the call. Soon :) When you going to Cali? I have not talked to her, just exchange some messages here. A Bosco and Kibby advenshur is long over due.

By catmom on Sep 5, 2014 at 9:26 AM

Been very busy lately. We should talk. Going on vacay to visit friends in So Calif - usual trip. Want to have Kibby send an emayo to Bosco this weekend. Hope I have time to get it done. Have you talked to Betsy recently? I need to give her a call, too.

By Sylviag on Sep 5, 2014 at 8:18 AM

Fanks! The years roll by and I just roll with them :) Enjoy your weekend. Sun we have a family birthday party as I, BIL and MIL all have birthdays within 3 days. Makes it easy to just have one big party. We will catch up one of these days when everything slows down.

By catmom on Aug 28, 2014 at 6:51 PM

Happytail birfday my fren!!!! A day early, but I gotz lotz goin on fur teh holliday weeken. Hope it is your best birthday ever, and each one after is better and better!

By Sylviag on Aug 13, 2014 at 7:16 PM

Thanks for the congrats. Was pretty cool to come home to an FP when I haven't made anything much for a couple of weeks. Trip was great. Nice combo of things that kept us hopping all over Cali :) Lots of fires there though. One big one on the Eel river aout 20 miles south of the festival. Several in the Redding area when we were at Lake Almanor. The whole state needs a good drenching. The music festival was a blast. Spent all night Mon and all day today trying to do some catch-up. Wanna make some Kamp LOLs. How has the rest of your summer been going? How are the adoptions doing? I see Betsy dropped in here for awhile.

By catmom on Aug 12, 2014 at 5:27 AM

Welcome back!! How was your trip?

By catmom on Aug 4, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Congratz onna nudder FP mai fren!!

By Sylviag on Jul 14, 2014 at 6:06 PM

Popping in right back :) Thanks for the congrats! Haven't mde it to the FPs in weeks and likely will continue for awhile. Been missing making any Kamp LOLs too. Bosco is getting POd LOL Lots of stuff to do this week and almost every night and then going on a 4 day camping trip this weekend with a bunch of friends. Then in 2 weeks we'll be heading to Garberville, CA for 4 day reggae festival 1-4 Aug with son and gal pal and some other friends with their RVs. And then to son's half-bro's wedding at Lake Almanor on 9 Aug where son's mom and step dad have a cabin. But we all rented a house for 4 days and will jsut park the RV. Oh boy, love those HOA meetings. Sounded like a jam packed agenda. How did it go? A lot of the local coop non-profit utilties around here hardly get anyone to show up at their meetings (to include us for our Sunriver house :) But they need a quorum so routinely send out proxies to sign for the chairperson. Gld Coco was adopted but nice you wuld have stepped in :) So hard to resits them and as usual had a hard time when we volunteere at Best Friends. But I know they will have a forever home no matter what so can leave with a good feeling. Whatchu been up to? Any more visitors?

By catmom on Jul 8, 2014 at 8:46 AM

Just popping by to say "hi"! How are you doing? Any nmore road trips planned for you nand Bryan? Did my volunteer shift at Petsmart yesterday AM. One empty cubby, and four adoptions last week. Two more kittens will be in the empty cubby by this morning. The little black and white kitten named Coco was scooped up for adoption in less than a week. A good thing for me because she was such a cutie with such great purrsonality, I was seriously going to bring her home if she was still there. That's the first kitten I have fallen for so completely I was ready to adopt her, in the year+ I have been volunteering with Animal Rescue Connections. I have an HOA board meeting tonight - get to discuss potholes, torn up pavement, increasing our garage sales from one per year to two per year, vacation forms for the for the security guards at our entrance gate, and the community 'end-of-summer' party.... Nothing out of the ordinary. If there is not an issue of overwhelming importance to all the homeowners, getting a decision on mundane issues can be as difficult as herding 1000 cats into the same cathouse :-)

You're back and back onna FP!!!! Congratz

By Sylviag on Jun 30, 2014 at 5:19 AM

Hi, hi and hi. Had a quick chit with Betsy as we were runnign to pick up Sonny and Shasta from pet resort. I think she would definitel be amenendble to a trip to Bend sometume in future. :)hugz and TTYL Not slept in 2 4 hours

By Sylviag on Jun 13, 2014 at 10:02 AM

Hiya! BD is driving over to Yosemite on Mon to show us around. So looking forward to meeting Becky - and BD too of course LOL Since we're RVing, I really don't know what wifi accessibility we will have. Although I suspect most of the RV parks we are staying at will likely have access since most people expect that nowadays. When we are in Vegas we have booked a hotel so I know I will be able to get on line there. 2 weeks would be a long time for me not to have the webz I must admit :)

By catmom on Jun 13, 2014 at 9:56 AM

Good morning, Syl!! Have a great time on your trip! When are you and BD meeting up at Yosemite, towards the end of your trip or the beginning? Looking forward to updates on your journey and pics, too.

By Sylviag on Jun 7, 2014 at 10:33 AM

Fight the good fight! First down toYosemite and BeckysDad will drive over for a day from San Jose to show us the highlights. So very nice of him to take the time. I am really looking forward to meeting him and Becky in person. Then to Vegas for 2 ngiths and hopefully take in show. Then up to Kanab to volunteer for 3 days witht he kittehs like we did a couple of years ago Can hardly wait to do that. We have a nice RV resort booked there with a swimming pool and full hookups. We usually only dry camp so this will be a real luxury. Just me and Bryan. We wer eso busy we forgot to take any pics except a couple by one of the lakes here. Next time he promised to come for longer. Making strawberrry jam this morning so gotta scoot. Ed adoption rates :( Summer is likelynot the best time for adoptions as people are going on vcations and such. Sounds like your back yard is thriving :)

By catmom on Jun 7, 2014 at 7:26 AM

Good morning, Syl! This is my first time filing an appraisal appeal, and it is done online. Bexar County has a file size maximum and a maximum of ten pics (jpeg format only) to be attached to your appeal, so I can't get too crazy . Where are you headed for your RV trip this year? Any pics of your time spent with your friend? Any other family members joining you on the RV trip?

By Sylviag on Jun 7, 2014 at 4:04 AM

Popping in to say Hi and good luck with tax apparaisal fight. About 6 or 7 yers ago we did that and i bowled them over with a binder with tabs, pictures, comps wit all other house in the area, references, for each of the adjudicators. I think they just got flipping bored when i started to go through it and granted a lower assesment. Had such a gret visit with our old friend from WA. Wanted to devote all our time to him so did not get on. Next Sat we leave for our 2 week RV road trip so a lot to get ready. WIll likely have WiFi in most places where we are staying (not wilderness camping this time :)

By Sylviag on Jun 2, 2014 at 9:28 AM

Thanks very much! As I keep telling everyone I am really thrilled to get my first "Invisible" FP. I truly love the ICHC icon kitttehs and they have been ignored for a long time. Busy week for you? We have our friend coming so will be fun to show him around.
