I come from cheese country, which makes me a Hell of a snob about it - even baked with eggs & suggar & plenty of vanilla, reisins, etc. (now I have to make some, sure enough)AV ... It was not baked cheesecake though so neither of us liked it very well.
So today I feel older than my normal old years. ... Marty has been napping.
You do make this sound easy ,( I do not know any better, sure enough.... As it should be. I’m okay for now, focusing on the practical stuff and what I can do. ... we will not know anything more for two months.
I am crudely envious on whoever can do with less than nine hours of keeping eyes & what's behind them shut down each day.Aww thank you @AV_ , we are doing what anyone would do. And sleep is overrated anyway right? We used to have a town here that was closed Sundays. I think it was called the Blue laws. I am glad that is not the case anymore. I like things open 24/7 just in case. LOL can you blame me? I am thankful the animal hospital only half an hour away from us is open 24/7 just in case.
No @Scandinavian, When needed, I’ll help out a charity checking out prospective owners to ensure they have a secure garden and a good hope ready and waiting. Dottie wouldn’t like having 2 puppies in the house
I would I would I would
OHMIGOD POOCHES! I need them and I am sure they need me!Hello lovelies
Oh my goodness @missy, isn’t he the cutest little puss ever His eye is already starting to look better, everything crossed for a complete recovery for him. I’m glad to hear it’s not just the furry boys who are eating again, you can’t afford to lose weight, there’s nothing of you as it is! Do you know, it’s a year ago today we boarded the ship in NY for our cruise? How did the time go by so quickly? Glad you’re still able to get out for some cycling and ice cream.
Sorry you’ve had to cancel your holiday @Scandanavian but totally understandable that you want to be there to help your Mum through her chemo and on the road back to health. Sending good thoughts for good news.
Argh, one of my pet peeves @marcy, people letting their kids behave like total brats. Sets them up to be bratty adults like Moaning Minnie who go through life thinking they’re ‘owed’. Glad you managed to enjoy the visit regardless. You’re making me feel really old knowing that Marty’s parents have only been married 10 years more than us
What a lovely view @Slick1 hope you’re enjoying every moment and relaxing and resting up.
Autie’s always smiling @Tekate, must make you so happy to see that little face beaming back at you. Not too long now till you can get back and cuddle her again.
Sounds like you had fun @junebug17 , Colin actually likes shopping too, just as well really Holiday food calories don’t count!
Hi @Mamabean, how’re things with you?
Did you have a good weekend @AV_? It sure is hot in Europe at the moment.
We’ve had a busy weekend, caught up with the laundry on Saturday, and had to do a home check yesterday for these 2 little cuties, everything checked out fine, so they’ll hopefully be coming over soon.
Must get out in the garden this afternoon, lots of weeding and deadheading to do. I can’t say I feel like it, I’m soooo tired, but hey ho, it has to be done.
Have a great Monday NIRDIS
Dear Kate the Great, I get it about Salley and I feel your love for her and for everyone in the family and for us here too. Animals make our lives better I agree. My first animal was Apache and my parents got him when they were pregnant with me. I grew up with that dog. He was the best dog. Sweet, loving and so wonderful. He died when I was 9. It was the first time I saw my dad cry and come to think of it so far the last time. I have not seen him cry since. But in those days men didn't cry like they do today. It wasn't as acceptable. But yes when Apache died everyone cried. My parents spent thousands on an experimental operation in the early 70s to try saving him but it failed. We loved that dog.@missy Thank you Missy, thank you very much. lucky Kate to know Missy and Greg and the furkiddos!
I love the scratch pad things, my son has one for his Luna, that cat LOVES it.. secretative Luna, when I get to Austin a few weeks I'll get some pix of this minx!
I hope Oliver is feeling well and I'm so glad the other kids are doing so much better. Sheesh you have had a bitch of a time.
Have you opened your mail thing yet from the idiot doctor?
Salley makes me world go round in life Missy, yes my kids and grandchild do of course, but I want them to continue to grow up and be independent, Salley, she's my baby, she really is John's dog though, she adores him. Animals make my life better and it didn't start when I was older it started when we had a sheepdog Shep when I was 2, I remember Shep, my sister adored that dog. Our cat ringo once eat our whole Thanksgiving turkey! my mom was beyond, we had chicken! animals love you.
So I went to a shoe store today because I have recently bought a new pair of sneaks (I put the pix a while back). well they started really hurting and John said he's had enough and that we are going to a real shoe store not the mail where you pick it out and try it on. Sooo, the kid (who was sweet as all heck) measured my feet, so it turns out my left foot is a size 10! I know your ears and nose continue to grow your whole life but feet? last I looked I was a 9, my right foot is a size 9, so he said I needed size 10 sneaks, so we bought a pair of size 10 sneaks and they feel delicious! and I paid 3x what I usually pay for a mall pair of sneakers, I choked but John didn't give a hoot, John loves me and I him.
So I appear to be on an extemporaneous writing binge here Missy, please do excuse me!
Life is a Seinfeld episode with a good measure of Shakespearean tragedy thrown in to the mix.
OMG it's GORGEOUS @MamabeanI should be sleeping but so excited I had to tell you my ring is done! It should be on IG soon because he sent me the video! It was just a reflection in the first pic he sent me...so there wasn’t anything wrong with it! I’m excited because I missed Lentil! I told him I was leaving for Maryland on Friday so to mail it then. I should have it on Monday! I took snapshots of a moving video so they are not the best!
