Ollie was diagnosed a year ago with diabetes, was on insulin for 2 days. A lot of people including his Vet were praying for him, he was in remission. I check his blood sugar every week with a FreeeStyle Lite on his toe. I noticed he was drinking and sleeping more than usual. He is only 4 yrs. old, thank you for your prayers. I still have 14 cats here, the little kittens are staying at my sisters because she put some large cages in her basement for them. She has 11 cats, we haven't had them tested yet therefore can't let them around our cats. I help her with them every day, hopefully we can find them good homes. The little male doesn't have a tail, I think he was in some type accident. Will talk to you tomorrow, goodnight Luv Y.O.M.

I've been known to partake at McDs...there's no shame in that at all. Particularly when you just hit that tired and hungry and I want it now. I just happen to really enjoy cooking so it's a form of personal entertainment. Blame my mom. She got me started cooking when I was just a lad. Don't be too jealous of my horseback riding. It wasn't gorgeous stallions running on the beach. There was a baseball field there at camp that was ringed with pine trees. The stables were nearby and they had a mix of horses and ponies. The horses were big and gentle and there were always lines waiting to ride them. There often weren't any lines for the ponies...hmmm wonder why. When it was your turn to ride you'd ride around the perimeter of the baseball field and then let the next little guy have his turn. If you were impatient you took your chances with the ponies. They were not fans of anyone riding them and they had a simple strategy. Once a kid was on their back they would take off at high speed directly for the pine trees and try to scrape you off their back with the lower branches. I remember one little gray one who was particularly nasty. His name was Thunderbucket. I matched up with him a few times and more than once I found myself sitting on my butt on the ground with a sap covered bump on my head. Venus sounds precious. What a privilege to share 18 years with her. You'd think that having a wonderful dog like Becky would only make me even more of a dog person. Actually, having Becky has made me appreciate cat ownership much more. They are far less maintenance. As much as I love our dawn walks...it's every day, rain or shine. If one is fortunate enough to get a sweet lovable cat you can have many great years together. I've watched some episodes of Too Cute on Animal Planet and they show litters of a few cat breeds from birth until they get adopted out. They really are adorable. I think it would be impossible to not fall in love with a litter of kitties. The chicken was good and I'll enjoy the leftovers, too. After I make a meal of a chicken I shred the remaining meat. For a few nights after I saute up some onions and then throw some chicken in the pan and season it all up with cumin, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder and some paprika . I scoop some of that mixture out into a warmed flour tortilla, add some cheese and there you have it...noms! It's a simple and tasty way to deal with leftover chicken. IAP rocks...what a fun theme.

We have been trying to trap the Mama cat to have her fixed but she is a sly one. We had her daughter "mother to Lil Mercy and Boo Boo Diesel" spayed along with two more females. There is a woman in a neighboring town that works for Peta, she picked them up, took them to a vet to be spayed and returned them the next day. They do that a lot around here. My sister and I both have so many of our own to take care of we can't afford the spay and neuter for the ferals. I checked Ollie's sugar this morning and it was 290, called the vet, took him in and they drew blood and drew urine from his bladder. He will have to start insulin tomorrow. Wanted to take some pics of the kittens but Ollie took most of my day. Please pray for him. Luv U, Y.O.M.

Sweetcheeks, when I am angry with my sister you better bet your boopies she knows it. She's the same way. We are very similar in humor and likes. Except for the fact that she tries to keep trying to get vests over that 50DD chest she has. Mine go below the 30's...more like a 22A

Ohai. They might not be able to transport until after the holiday weekend. I understand that. I wouldn't want to be traveling this weekend either, too much stress. The man cat has a health issue. He has feline leukemia, but the vet said he was okay to travel. He has an abscess on his chin and will have to have antibiotics for a while. I've taken care of those before so that's no problem. The lady who is coordinating this said that he probably wouldn't have been adopted if I hadn't asked for him. I thought of spelling Sofie with an "f" for sofa would be okay. What do you think? Too cutesy? Linda

That's too bad that it's such a long trek to the beach for you. I do like being close enough that on a whim I can pop over(though I so rarely do). When I was a kid I went to camp for a week for quite a few summers. It was on a bluff right above the beach. We rode horses and played baseball in the morning and every afternoon we swam in the ocean. I body-surfed from the moment we got down there until it was time to go. I love your joie de vivre with your dash into the surf. I have great respect for those who don't let pesky canes and such slow them down from enjoying life. Still, I can appreciate your son's position as well. He's just looking out for you. Yeah, that whole if you don't play you can't win thing does tend to get in the way of winning the lottery. I was never a cat fan growing up but I lived with a gal for three years during my early twenties who had cats. "Spooks" was a great cat that I learned to enjoy. Many mornings I woke up to a white cat on my chest either kneading away or nuzzling at my chin. So what was for dinner? I've got a chicken roasting out on the bbq right now.

hey, I noticed the talk going around about someone stealing LOLs. Don't recall who it was but I saw a steal on violetD's "turtle recall" about a week ago and left a FB comment on it being a blatant steal. I notice it is gone now. Lots of people don't like me cuz I call them like I see them. Violet does good stuff and I was not gonna let that one stand without comment. I'm not so much mean as I am tactless.I never saw the point in beating around the bush. the storm is over here, curfew is lifted already. no flooding here. It was pretty much a nonevent here but I know other places north and east of here are having problems. My prayers go out to them.
