Well, they say you aren't really a Canadian unless you can design a Halloween costume that fits over a snow-suit. We've had freakishly warm weather today- 23 Celcius, which is something in the seventies for you. But at least snow doesn't catch fire. And if it does...
Thanks for your gratz too, Linda. I may be missing some days in the near future. Hurricane Sandy is going to get us--just don't know how bad things will be. We are expecting power outages though, and I hate, hate, hate losing the electricity. I hope it won't be out over a week as it was when Isabel hit us. Hugs, Brenda
She is! That is her photo taken by the shelter for Petfinder. Her name was Diamond then (uh . . . no. No dog of mine will be named Diamond!). She was about five or six months old then and we got her at six months old. I took her over the internet and phone. When we got to the shelter I was in shock. For some reason I was expecting a medium-sized dog of some sort. There was no size comparison in her photo. There she was, behind her circular fence thing, cute as heck and about the size of a smallish cat! At four years old she's still only about 15 pounds. Spoiled as all get out, sleeps between us, sleeps at my feet in the office all day between ball games, and we are totally owned! But she is so sweet-natured and tries so hard to be good! How can you beat that? Smart as Jack Russells are smart, but not obnoxious about it. And yes, I should have known she'd be that small. Pat knew. I just had never had a dog (other than a great beast back in the 70s/80s while growing up) and had something else in mind from her photo. So now we have nine cats and the one Weegee.
I had hoped you were getting to watch the game since you weren't responding to messages. I hope the opportunity comes through for you tonight, too. That was sure a fun game to watch last night. I hope they have Baumgartner's mechanics squared away. It could be lots of fun tonight, too. It's just fun to have them playing in the series. All too often it's two teams I couldn't care less about. Enjoy your snow, too!
Concats, comcats! U rock! I'm about to be clobbered soon by a hurricane. I hope it's not a Hugo or Katrina. I was working in a hospital in of Charleston SC when Hugo hit. We were 2 blocks from the bay. I watched the water rise up to the 2nd story window. My apartment had 5 feet of puff mud and 4 1/2 feet of water. I had to live in the old nun's apartments for 3 months because a huge tree crashed all the way down from the apartment above me to my floor. NOT FUN. The guy just walked into my sleeping room while I was asleep. He was looking for those of us who were staying there who would'nt be home so he could steal from us. He'd had keys made of all the rooms. He claimed he was a janitor but we all knew he was just a thief.
Well I told her I loved her this morning and I did not get the usual scowl and stomp response so I would say things are better. I do feel bad for her. She is absolutely miserable if she isn't given the proper meds. She really feels hopeless and it wounds my heart more than I can express. It kills me inwardly to hear her say she doesn't like life or think it's worth living. I have to draw a breath and remind myself it's the chemical imbalance talking not really her. Now that things are getting more balanced brain chemistry wise she is really fun to be around and really has such intelligence and insight. I want her to be happy and experience the good parts of herself. Thanks for the compliments. I owe my gift of humor to my uncles on my mom's side. They were the biggest cornballs ever and had lots of priceless one liners. They are all gone but one now and I think if the ones gone knew what I do here they would be very pleased. Especially my favorite one, the bachelor uncle who really was like my father. He was an ornery nut and I am proud to say I am just like him.
