Austina what drops are you using? Itchy sounds like allergies maybe...hope you feel better very soon. Let me know if I can help with advice or anything.Hello lovelies
Sorry this is going to be a short post, I’m having a bit of a problem with my eyes. The last couple of days they’ve been so itchy, painful and streaming, so I’ve not been online much.
They’re feeling a bit better today, I’ve been putting in lots of eye drops, don’t know whether it was all the dust and heat the other day,
Oliver is a complete snuggle bug @missy, he’s just gorgeous
Sorry not to respond individually, hopefully my eyes will be back to normal tomorrow.
Hope all you lovely NIRDIS are doing well
Thank you Stracci. That is very kind of you. Honestly it helps to save the ones who are more difficult to adopt and we are doing it in honor of Francesca just like we did when Billy died. We adopted Francesca and Bobby and then Tommy. All special needs kitties but for Francesca. She was our purrrfect little girl. Thank you for all your good wishes. I so appreciate them. So much. (((Hugs))).
Well I thought so originally but after talking with people and looking for an album to buy (they are nowhere lol) I think we are the odd ones out Callie. Where do you buy your photo albums? We found exactly one at Target and none in the other stores we went to in search of the photo albums. I like having them on the computer too but sometimes only a real physical photo scratches that itch for me if you kwim. I regret taking no photos on our honeymoon save one.

Good morning! We lost power yesterday so I’m going to pack everyone up and head to Maryland. David will be thrilled he’s playing hooky from work for two days. Thank you for liking my ring...I’m leaving for Chicago Friday of next week and Libby will hopefully come with me! Talk to you all from Maryland!
I can’t stop laughing over Oliver’s tiger face! @missy He is tooooooo cute!
Are you thinking of buying it @AV_ ?@junebug17 I am klinging to this place for dear life, to be sure! I keep working remotely on beyond exotic stuff - which is not something I have expected to last this long (it all sounds so ridiculeous, I do not kno what am I to do!)
The pin - I am taken aback to see that old name discounted to half shelf price! The house is famous for surprising engraving & other texturing of their gold work; this piece is very simple for them, I had not expected any signature on it at first sight.
Thanks Junie. We tried 4 stores yesterday lol and none had them. Those are great suggestions but what I did when we got back home was to order two on Amazon. What doesn't Amazon have lol. Costco might have something too but we didn't feel like going there yesterday as we have been there twice already this week. I also did find a photo album in Target the other day that I bought but don't love. I will keep you posted re the Amazon purchase when it arrives here tomorrow. It would be great for you to take your Zoe pics and make a beautiful album of her life with you. It is so hard missing our little babies. It brings me comfort knowing how much you and I adored and cherished them and maybe just maybe they are together playing happily at Rainbow Bridge. That is one fantasy I will allow myself. Sending you hugs and love dear Junie. (((Hugs))).@missy, what a lovely idea to put Francesca's pictures into photo albums. I wonder if a craft store like Joannes or AC Moore might carry them. I have pictures of Zoe on my phone and I want to make prints of them, I feel like I've lost pictures over the years from my phone and computer and I would hate to lose her pics. DS took a lot of pics of her, and I want to make prints of those too. I know you are still grieving for your sweet girl very much. (((Hugs))) Thank you for thinking of me - yes, still hard being without Zoe.
Great suggestions Kate the Great. We went to BB&B but guess what? No albums. Crazy right? I ordered two (one in pink and one in blue) from Amazon and I hope they are nice. I also bought one at Target the other day that I filled with her photos but I want another for Brooklyn. Two homes makes everything twice as complicated. But I do want to be able to look at the album of her no matter if we are at the beach or in Brooklyn. What can I say?@missy My most marvelous Missy, wow on Ollie's teeth, pretty danged cool! I so agree with you Missy, our furkids give us MORE, no doubt about it.. Missy, the morning pictures is truly breathtaking, it's gorgeous, thank you for posting it, I felt lifted just looking at it, truly.
I agree about getting a photo album, who would think in our lifetimes that we would store pix on a stupid computer, not me. Frankie is beautiful, Frankie made your heart sing, she gave and gave, now you give back that love to Oliver, TRULY, I cannot think of anything more wonderful to do Missy..love you girl. xoxoxoxo added: Maybe bed,bath,beyond has albums? or the dollar store? xo
Yummy! Glad you enjoyed the food but oh no to AC being broken. That is a concern for me right now as the next few days the heat index will be over 100 degrees F. And air quality very poor so praying the AC holds. Which brings me to @MamabeanEmpire food was great, I ordered Mongolian beef and I wanted beef and noodles, but it was VERY good, John had bowel of noodles and it was HOT and HOT there at Empire because the A/C was broken.. it was to be a 45 minute wait but they got us in but we had to sit RIGHT next to the kitchen, but we being oldsters enjoyed it!
Oh no @Mamabean to your power going out and thank goodness you were able to get away to your home with power. Whew. Sweet relief.Good morning! We lost power yesterday so I’m going to pack everyone up and head to Maryland. David will be thrilled he’s playing hooky from work for two days. Thank you for liking my ring...I’m leaving for Chicago Friday of next week and Libby will hopefully come with me! Talk to you all from Maryland!

You are a great wife Marcy. Lucky Marty as I bet Montana is cool now. Yes I guess you did have enough fun being on vacation last week but well if it is as hot by you as by us I would probably join Marty. But perhaps your weather is (most likely) better than ours this weekend. Hope Marty has good strength training session. And a nice drive. Yes it was bittersweet putting together that photo album. Greg didn't even want to look at it but I asked him to and so he did and we reminisced about her but it is too painful for us still. She was such a special soul. I don't like to use past tense when talking about her. She is a special soul. We love her still and will always love her.I am so glad it’s almost Friday. Marty is heading out early for northwest Montana. He is going to a session for a certification for strength training coaching. He picked this spot because he could drive and it probably wouldn’t cost that much. Wrong; it’s near Glacier National Park so the cheapest room he could find was over $200. I thought of going along for the ride since it’s so pretty up there but I had enough fun being on vacation last week.
We had the most fabulous tenderloins for supper; I ordered them from Kansas City Steaks. They were 10 oz and triple trim; I’m ordering more of those. Marty grilled the steaks and make rice pilaf in the microwave; he didn’t put in enough water so the rice was boiled down to hard rocks. He added the rest of the water, stirred and cooked it longer and surprisingly it came back okay. I was a good wife and didn’t say a word.
It can be best to worry about that kind of thing vs issues that are more challenging and concerning. Allow yourself some frivolity. We all need it dear AV.This might not belong on this thread (since I haven't done it!) ... but this is not the kind of thing talked about much & I'm going to be impolite about the subject:
WWW - what would you pay for this over the price of gold (that is about 1K - off the cuff) ?
I am finding myself some object to non-worry about!
Dreams make life worthwhile.Every once in a while dreams like this turn up on my way, ripe for the picking.
