I do not expect anyone to drop anyone else because I have unfriended them, if that is what your quandy is, sweetie. Also if anyone needs to drop me because of loyalties or something of that nature, I completely understand. I am not here to hurt anyone. Hugs & lubs bak

Ohai Georgette...you are still Georgette? :) The kitten in this profile is Greta, the one that had the bad leg but is fine now. The other kitten was Boz, the one that has cat flu and is still sick. Read my kitten lool again.. this time let it sink in. I got an email from you last week and answered it. I will look in spam, sometimes my good stuff somehow goes there. I think I will wake myself up with a cold watermelon, the season is almost over, gonna miss them. Oh well sweet tater season is next, my mouth is already watering for them. Lubs and big hugs Y.O.M.

Goodnight, Dave. I know...too easy. I would guess that Millie reacted that way because the dog was right in her face AND the fact that she had no escape route available to her. We both know that she was protected there but they think in terms of fight or flight and flight was not available to her. If we're out on a walk, Becky will not bother cats. We've walked within 18 inches of a cat sunning itself while I had the leash draped behind my neck. Becky cruised right past the cat. I guess the cat knew by energy that Becky meant her no harm. Now if they come into our backyard it's another matter entirely. Becky chases everything out of our yard. Actually that photo of the seeing eye dog I grabbed off the net. Here's a picture of Jeannie and Becky. http://cheezburger.com/4379370496 My friend LeeAnn was stricken with polio during infancy and has been in a wheelchair all her life. This is her webpage http://home.comcast.net/~leeannlaraway/ If you click on the Jeannie tab you'll find videos of her and her amazing capabilities. There's also a very fun one of her on an easter egg hunt. Watch those and you'll fall for Jeannie. I think I would find the Amtrak trip to see the whole country too confining. There are too many side trips I'd want to take. There are some amazing train rides that I'd be up for though. They travel through some amazing country. Now the RV trip has real appeal. I could definitely do that. As for my activities recently. Yesterday was a school day so I worked with the kids at school. Today I did some grocery shopping, got my haircut, mowed the lawns and baked some killer cinnamon raisin bread. I uploaded a photo in case you wanted to peek. It's way yummy. I'm going to use a couple thick slices tomorrow morning to make french toast. I hope the video helps you settle in for the night again.

What do you mean "Write Back!!"? I always write back. Yeah, if you don't like driving cliffside then you'd have trouble with much of the stretch along Big Sur. You'd have some of that getting into Yosemite as well. Both are totally worth it. Isn't it funny how at one time in our lives we would have been horrified at turning into our elders. Once we get some life experience and a bit more wisdom and they don't seem nearly so bad. I'd imagine that Millie gets excited at both outside and bye-bye. Both make the world so much bigger. That's too bad that Millie isn't more anxious for cuddling on the couch. I know I wish Becky was more affectionate. I often have to pair the affection with a wrestling match to get her enthusiastic about it. That pedal style Singer is a treasure. My grandmother had one as well and it was the most notable of her belongings. Even as a guy I could appreciate the appeal. I've never used a sewing machine. I do all mine by hand. I hem pants, mend things and replace buttons with no trouble. It sounds like you have some great memories of your grandmother that you can treasure.

NO!! Thank YOU!!! I LOVE your stuff!! I hesitate to accept new friends cuz I don't even have enough time to get back to my existing peeps! I try tho...so know that if you leave a message, I will get back to you AS SOON as I can! Gardening/Canning/Preserving season is so busy for me...but that should be done in about a month!! I notice you have owned a LOT of pets! I can definitely relate to owning TOO many hamsters at one point! We had 29 several weeks after buying a boy and girl! Had to put'em in a box in the bathtub til we could find homes for them...they kept chewing out of the box but were too tiny to get out of the tub! Every 3 weeks a new litter! Now we have two Cats, both fixed and no little surprises!

Dinger left us a little over two weeks ago. We jokingly called him our prodigal son because he would come inside, eat, want some attention, nap and then get up and then go back outside for a few hours. But he always came back to recharge. I wasn't thrilled with him being an indoor/outdoor kitty, but it was what he was used to and I didn't feel it was fair to take that away. Mittens was a foster that was only supposed to be for a few days while her human mama was moving. She told me that Mittens was pregnant and due soon, but I don't think she realized how soon as Mittens had her babies the first night here. My Harley is one of Mittens' kittens from a previous litter. I was a little concerned at first that she might reject the kittens being in a new strange environment and with my cats around, but we kept her separated in my daughters room and she turned out to be a phenominal mama kitty and adjusted really well. But now it's time to return to her human mama whose all settled in their new home.

Mittens was a foster that was only supposed to be for a few days and ended up staying for four weeks. I met her human mama in front of Walmart about five months ago when she was looking for homes for Mittens previous litter, that was how we ended up withwith H

Thanks, Deb. I miss Annie so very much and just wish she'd had a chance to know Sadie - but hey, I get to have them both in my heart along with Jerry and Lolly and Ric and Jenn (my older daughter) and so very many other folks, including the incredible cheez folks (like you!) from here. Jerry's hanging in there. He'll go, I know that, but not until he's ready - he's made that very clear:). Hugs, dear Deb. Your messages mean a lot to me.

I took Orinch to the Door County Humane Society. He will be vetted, neutered, and have the chance for a forever home. DCHS is low kill ~ an honest statement that they kill only for medical imperative. I know that is true since I volunteered there for a year and half. Thak you for your caring, too.
