Hey Deb! The LOLs were by Catsuberalles, I found them on JeffCatsBookClub. I have one or two of his books, and have read several. I discovered LG just a few years before he died. I think his books and humor are timeless. He was a story-teller. It was about the message, not the context (Sorta like Mark Twain). He was very good at drawing you in, and making you feel comfortable. I loved the stories about his dog (Catfish?) and his cat. (My favorite was his telling the story about feeding his cat. The cat would get too close to the fridge door and get hit in the head by door, and then stand looking into the bowl as LG was trying to put the food in it. The food would roll off the cats head and into the bowl. Too funny!!!) I'm jealous about the postcard! That would be awesome to have! TTYL! Gary

Hello Georgette, we are going to have to communicate more. Seems like everything that can happen will happen. I haven't been on here quite as much the past few days. One of my niece's cats has been in the hospital for the past four days with kidney problems due to ingesting something toxic and she is really worried. Pussums will not eat her diabetic food, Ollie's blood glucose jumped way up and the little feral we couldn't catch is missing. My new avatar is Boo Boo Diesel, Greta's niece. Greta is doing great, her bad leg is still smaller than the other one but it doesn't slow her down. I will be glad when I get a pet stroller, your Millie seems like she is really enjoying hers. I will shoot you an email before long and I have a Georgette lol in mind for my Georgette:D. Hugs Y.O.M.

Hmmm. If I am given an opinion that is leaning too far to one side it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up and I automatically argue the opposite. I have never argued that Hitler had some good ideas but I have argued for other things I don't believe just because the person made me grumpy. I think it has to do with having Asperger's and a warped sense of right and wrong. I also don't always get when I am supposed to answer a question or not, like on the Internet, on LOL captioning websites for example :-)

Becky has a fuzzy toy that she plays with on occasion but a good stick makes her really happy. She'd bring one back and i'd be futzing with the camera and she's continue to paw at it and move back and forth until she compelled me to throw it for her. The tune in that video was from Man from Snowy River...Clancy's Theme. I love that soundtrack. I can imagine that it was interesting to be involved in an accident when you're part of the emergency response community. My brother was training to be a public safety officer out here where they rotate as police and firemen. He had an accident in his garage where he stepped off a ladder while barefoot and directly onto the catcher portion of his lawnmower. He impaled his foot on a chunk of metal. He had the presence of mind not to immediately jerk his foot up. That made a huge difference as it was a crooked piece of metal and he would have torn out a mess of tendons and stuff. In any case, he called out to his neighbor who called 911 and kinds of folks he knew showed up to help him...and to give him a bad time. I love that your cop buddy spun his vehicle, too. As far as Becky not being allowed to be in the lake...actually they can't be off paved trails or roads in a national park. It's to protect the wildlife.

Not sure how serious I am supposed to be with my response. The easy answer is that about three-quarters of Canada's population lives within 100 miles of the US border. We end up being heavily influenced by American politics. In case you are wondering not all Canadians would vote for Obama. Me personally, I find that the Republican and Canadian Conservative party agenda can sometimes be mean spirited, but that is just me.

High heels, black ice and a long walk are a bad combination. Losing control of the car on the ice and going into a ditch would be scary as hell. It sure makes you feel alive with how fast your heart pounds after, though. Thank god you were okay. The trip was good but sure started out cold. It was only 28 when we hit the lake that morning. You said you saw pictures...did you see the video? http://cheezburger.com/43053313 As usual it's good to go full screen and high def. I put in lots of miles getting to all the places I wanted to visit and take pictures at. It was almost 500 miles by the time I got home. The conditions weren't great for photography but it was okay. Poor Becky wanted to get out and hit every bit of water she saw but you just can't do that in a National Park. In fact, we weren't supposed to be in the lake either.

Lilly still cries at the time of her brother's death, but not as much. She just seems so lonely, no matter what we do. They were inseparable. You rarely saw one without the other. She spends most of her time on their spot on the bed. I have to leave a newspaper there for her (we had one for him due to the accidents he had every so often). She got used to it and if there is no paper, she starts pacing and crying. Thank you for asking :)

Without knowing about Patblo's until a minute ago, I did one of my own. Hope it makes you smile in spite of the uh, langwidge. I told Chris 10a earlier, they told me six weeks. Right now, it is mad and is punishing me for being stupid. http://cheezburger.com/6659528192

I would say nineties in March is too warm and too early. It sure would be good if you got enough cold to kill off all the bugs. They sure can be annoying. It gets dark out here about 6:45 these days. You asked when it get cold here and I'm not convinced it ever does. I just looked it up and our average high in December and January is 59 and the average low in those months is about 41. We do get morning when it's in the thirties but I don't think we hit freezing at all last Winter. It really is pretty mild here. I'll bet that two hour nap helped. With any luck you'll get caught up tonight. I'll bet that heat does make things easier on the back and legs. I'm going to go to bed an hour early or so tonight since I'm going to get up at two and drive to Yosemite tomorrow. I want to be at Tenaya Lake at sunrise. Then I'll move down into the valley to his some of my other favorite picture taking spots. I doubt I'll stay to the end of the day even though there are some lighting situations I wouldn't mind taking advantage of at dusk. That would just make getting home later than I'd like and it would be a very long day at that point.
