Elf wouldn't be happy waiting for breakfast either. Fortunately he never has to as he always has dry food in his bowl. As for me, I usually have coffee early and eat something after I get through in the yard, usually by 9:00 at the latest. I ended up having toast with butter and blueberry preserves slathered all over. And a big glass of milk of course. Yes, poor Philly, losing after all that. Boo hoo. They can make up for it when they play the Dodgers. That would bother me too if they added a parcel tax to pay for for those tunnels. They'd probably do the same thing here and it really isn't a fair way to do it. If they're going to build tunnels, they'd better shake a leg. Things are already at desperate levels. I'd mention that we're about to get some rain, but you probably don't want to hear it. =) Thanks for the gratz on my Squee pic.

Ooh yum! I've been outside and haven't even had breakfast yet and now my tummy's rumbling. Geez, what a time for the ballgame recording to end! Bet you were kinda surprised it was still on. Glad Lincecum will be available for the Dodgers game. Yeah, Syl never seems to slow down, does she? Glad she's getting more sleep at least! Oh man, I have to go eat brekkie. Can't stand it any longer...

Oh shoot! Missed this message. Your turn! lol Saw the pic of your cinnamon bread - a thing of beauty!! Are you sure all you did was look? I would have had to have a slice right there and then. I suppose you were a good boy and had dinner first. I haven't seen Volunteers in ages either but I do remember how funny those two were. Giants won, Dodgers lost - all is right with the world! Longmire didn't disappoint. Whew, Branch is losing it - or is he? Only two more shows to go this season, so I guess we'll find out soon. I hope so anyway. I don't want to have to wait until next year to find out! It was great hearing from Syl!!

Yes, it was a good day indeed. The doctor even tapped Hubcat on the leg (away from the knee) and said, "You have done well and should be proud of yourself." That was better than a dinner, especially when he followed it up with all the rest of that good news. He knew all along things would go better with a good leg to help out, but I think even he was surprised at how far along Hubcat has come in just three weeks. There was some sad news today from the Wildlife Center. One of the yearling bears fell from a tree in the big bear yard (where the pool in the gif is) and hurt his jaw. This was last Tuesday and initial x-rays were inconclusive. It was obvious that the bear was having trouble with his jaw, so more x-rays were done today, and they showed a fracture that could not be repaired. They had to euthanize him.

Oh..lthe HORROR....cinnamon on the bread? LOL, sorry, that made me laugh. I'd be like, who cares what it looks like, let's eat! I do however, understand wanting to make the "perfect" loaf. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my own art too. Your pizza crust sounds amazing! It is now on my list of life ambitions to come have one of your pizzas someday, perhaps with friend James along cause he loves food so much. My little Frankie is doing just fine. She's got over the torture of having her bath and now knows how adorable she is, mostly because I tell her, the little flirt. She flounces around, tail held high and wagging, ears up. Kyoot lil stinker.

I do like a good cop read now and again, so I no doubt will enjoy it. I thought that was an interesting theory on water usage and probably does have merit, along with a good number of other factors, like dopey people who just don't care. Way too much of that. So how was the rest of your day? I don't suppose you got any more rain? I guess you would have mentioned it. Great news about cataff and her hubs! I'm sure happy for them. We'll be watching Longmire soon. Can't wait!
By Fauxpaws on Jul 22, 2014 at 2:53 PM
You got rain? Real rain? Wow! Congratulations! How did that happen? LOL! It's probably a distant memory by now but who knows, maybe you'll get some more! Well, my library branch didn't have a copy of THGTTG so I ordered one to be sent over there. I do hope it's better than Ayn Rand's books! I did grab one of WEB Griffin's books but it's one of the Badge of Honor series. I'll see how that goes. Oh, btw, catsuberalles was ed'ing our conversation about California's water shortage and wanted me to send along his thoughts to you. He lives in California, so it is of interest to him, too. Anyway this was it below. I thought it was interesting. Hi, ED you and BD re CA water shortage and the profligacy of southern California vs northern California. AFAIK a far greater percentage of the northern California population is native. Native Californians tend to be more aware and conscientious. (This isn't all about Mexicans/Hispanics. Southern California in general and L.A. metro in particular is getting to be like New York, with large groups of people from all over the country and the world. Lots of obnoxious New Yorkers!)

Golly, I just realized that I never answered you here. Sorry, my days just get away from me sometimes. I'm fighting this headache every day now. Oh yes, he's a fav around here too. I've watched Castle on occasion but seems to me it was on a channel we didn't get in well or on a time that was bad, can't remember which, so never became a regular. If you've never seen the Firefly series, you're in for a treat. Also be sure not to miss the Serenity movies, you'll want to after the series, they were fabulous. James found a website listing all the cool firearms they made for that show. He was bouncing all over the place happy about that, ask him to share it with you if interested. Oh...and be sure to give the show a chance, they did the episodes out of order and start out a bit goofy. Trust me, they get better. Oh, okay, I won't ask to see kitchens, personally I'd rather not know anyhow, LOL. Did you get your bread going this last weekend? How did the folk's shindig go?

I thought about the lottery ticket later, but I'd probably used up my good luck by then anyway. I have a very limited supply. The knee is back to normal this morning, just the old minor achy pain that I've grown used to. I finished The Radleys and am finally going to get to the library today! I've decided I need to read The HItchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. For some reason I never got around to reading it. I hope they have a copy.

It's not looking too likely that we'll see him again but ya never know. The store wasn't bad at all, amazingly enough. Traffic was light, there was a parking space right up front, they had everything on my list (!) AND I didn't have to wait in a checkout lane. That combo won't happen again in 100 years! The only bad thing was my knee started to act up, but no biggy. Isn't it always the way, when you're all grubby and just need to make a quick run somewhere, sure enough you'll run into somebody you know! Sounds like it didn't matter what you looked like, you were a big hit, especially with Tessa! Most German Shepherds I've met take a little while to warm up to people. Maybe the fact that you smelled divine after your yard work had something to do with it? Heh heh. Nah, you're just a dog lover and she could sense it. =)

Sorry to be answering late. I read just about anything, including the back of the cereal box! The last ones were Natchez Burning, I Am Malala, The Auschwitz Escape, and Unbroken. I haven't started a new book this week, but I have All The Light We Cannot See and The Invention of Wings next in the lineup. I have a book with me all the time. It's my comfort "blanky". We got by with one more day of low humidity today. I watched the news and weather at noon, and the weatherman said that we'll be having another fine stretch of weather in the coming weeks with no long periods of heat that July and August usually bring. That sounds very good to me. I just hope it doesn't foretell a winter like we had last year. That was miserable. I hope you and Miss Becky are having a good day. Hugs, Linda (wally01)

Yeah, I kept thinking he was was up to something fishy but no, he actually has a good side! Who knew? We thoroughly enjoyed that story about Rory's dad. And what a payoff! I really expected Syl to have made an appearance by now. I did see where she wrote you a little blurb. I know it's summer and there's lots to do with the yard and the house and the family and traveling and... Well, there ya go. We might just have to wait until this fall when the gkids are back in school and the weather has cooled off. I sure hope not!! Got to get to the grocery store myself today for a major run. I know the heat's coming back and I sure can't put it off any longer. *sigh*

Eh, you have to think Longmire is fine. Still, that was a "wow!" ending. Pizza Pizza! Nice that you have a backup, especially since they turned out so well. It's probably a good thing that I was out of the grape. I probably would have guzzled the whole bottle and ended up feeling even worse. Hah! Did you hear about the bet Rory Mcilroy's dad made? Paid off big time! Not as big as how much Rory made for winning the Open, of course, but still...
By Fauxpaws on Jul 20, 2014 at 4:21 PM
Ugly is a good word for it. Hope I don't have another one any time soon. Plus I'm out of fermented grape juice! Susan and I shared the last bottle the other night. Oh woe iz me. I do feel better now anyway. You really are getting caught on Longmire! How many more do you have before you're caught up and we can yak about the latest show? =) I'd imagine this season will be finished soon and then we can both have withdrawals. Two out of three wins for the Giants sounds good, considering some of their games lately. You finishing that pizza tonight?
