How We Met

We had just lost our blue-eyed, long-haired white kitty, Sugar to FELV and our neighbors cat had just had a litter of white kittens. They gave us Moki when she was just 5 weeks old. She was so small the vet called her a "pocket kitty". Moki crossed the Bridge on 10/28/09. And we really miss her a lot! RIP, sweet angel.
The picture at the bottom has 2 of her brothers, Red and Felix (now, both angels). Felix looks black in the picture, but he's really all gray.

HEY A.MOKI & FURSIBS!
GREETINGS ALL FELINES! IT WAS A FUNNY THING BUT THIS MORNING AS I WAS PASSING OUT MY DAILY BLOGS, COMIC-CON JUMPED INTO MY HEAD! SO I THOUGHT
HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO HAVE A CAT-CON? AND GUESS WHAT? THERE IS SUCH A THING! SO GET YOUR COMFY SHOES ON AS WE ARE HEADING
TO L.A. FOR THE CAT-CON! I GUESS YOU ALL KNOW ABOUT COMIC-CON? THE MOST FAMOUS ONE BEING IN SAN DIEGO? SARAH SHERMAN, WHO IS A CERAMIC ARTIST. SHE DESIGNS CAT URNS TO RESEMBLED THOSE OF THE CAT QUEEN, BAST. SAMMI WALLSCHLAEGER BROUGHT HER CAT L'IL ADOLPH. HE RESEMBLES HIM.
BUT HAS A BETTER CATITUDE. MOSTLY IT'S HIS MUSTACHE & GERMAN ACCNENT. MANY VENDORS HAND PICKED BY SUSAN MICHAELS, FOUNDER OF CAT-CON. THE FIRST CAT-CON WAS JUNE 2015. THOUSANDS OF CATS AND THEIR OWNER CELEBRITIES CONVERGED ON THE SCENE! I KNOW MOST OF YOU KNOW L'IL BUT, THE CUTIE WHO ALWAYS HAS HIS TONGUE OUT. HE REIGNED SURPREME AT THE INNAUGARAL CAT-CON. THERE WERE 12,501 ATTENDEES. WHILE COMIC-CON IS FOR NERDS & GEEKS,CAT-CON IS FOR CRAZY CAT PEOPLE! IT'S NO LONGER CONSIDERED TO BE A CRAZY CAT LADY, GREY GARDENS DEAL TO HAVE LOTS OF CATS AT THE CENTER OF OUR LIVES!

THERE ARE BOOTHS WITH BOXEX OF CAT FOOD, TOYS,GLASSES FOR KITTIES. I'M THINKING WINE GLASSES & BEER
STEINS. OH AND MARTINI GLASSES. DESIGNER SHIRTS FOR HAIRLESS CATS WHO MUST WEAR CLOTHES. AND THE KITTYO, A KICKSTART DEVICE THAT LETS YOU
PLAY REMOTELY WITH YOU CATISE! REMEMER HIM FROM CONAN O'BRIEN? THEY HAVE BOOTHS OF CAT ART, CAT THEMED CLOTHES, CAT EARS, FURNITURE, LIKE THE LEANING TOWER OF PIZZA! IT'S REALLY SUPER COOL TO SEE SO MANY KITTIES IN ONE PLACE, ALL GETTING ALONG WITH NO HISSY FITS. THEY HAVE LOTS OF KITTY SAMPLES AND COUPONS. THE HUMAN TYPE PEOPLE WILL HAVE LOTS OF OTHER CRAZY CAT PEOPLE TO TALK TO WHILE THEIR CATS GET ACQUAINTED AND SCOPE THE PLACE OUT! AFTERWARDS WE ARE GOING TO KATZ DELI FOR LUNCH! A FINE JEWISH DELI WITH SMOKED CATFISH ON BAGELS AND CREME CHEESE. LOX IF YOU PURFUR. MOGGEN DAVID WINE, OR MAD DOG AS MOM CALLED IT IN HER YOUTH. RUEBEN SAMMIES ON RYE WITH PICKLE SPEARS. MATZO BALLS, CHALLAH BREAD! BRING YOUR APPETITE. IM SURE THEY HAVE ALL THE CAT-SAFE EATING FOR US. ESPECIALLY THE FISH STUFF! THEY HAVE THEIR OWN FISH DEPARTMENT WITH HEADS-ON FISH! I DUNNO IF I LIKE A FISH STARING BACK AT ME AS I EAT HIM! KINDA CREEPY BUT A CATS GOTTA DO WHAT A CAT'S GOTTA DO. WHY, WE CAN EVEN GO TO GRIFFITH PARK ZOO AND THE OBSERVATORY IF WE WANNA BOOK A ROOM AT THE CHATEUA MARMONT! AND TAKE A SHOW IN AT THE MAGIC CASTLE IN THE HOLLYWOOD HILLS! HE EVEN HEARD THE STRAY CATS ART PLAYING AT THE TROUBADOR MY FAMILY, BEING FROM THE L.A. AREA KNOWS ALL THE COOL PLACES!!

things are
going okay, her arm is less painful as she didn't do to much blogging, but has only a limited time of 45 mins. for both pages and has gotten cotd done already, pepper is done and back in her kennel and well the two sisters april/haley are around in the living room and come and go as they please. had a shower, but not till last night although there was one not to far from here 6 mins onto shays street and then you can see where it stopped too. got up to the upper 70s yesterday in spots and mid for the most part, so warm enough to open up two windows in the living room the kitchen and both in janet's bedroom, and bathroom. it would've been to much for mommy if janet had opened up anymore, the sun came out by mid to late afternoon and cleared off till we got the shower last night not long before it got dark. warming up nicely and we'll see the 80s starting on wednesday onwards lower to upper as well as boomers, but tomorrow's highs slipping to just the upper 60s with boomers before the warm front comes in. she's been leaving her windows open a little crack at night to let in fresh air, but had nat close them down last night as she got cold, so woke up sweating as it was to warm in here, so had to open them up again and ah, back to sleep. a few errands after work and then she can sit out if the bugs aren't biting big time and do computer stuff outside instead of sitting here. she did get all of her fenced in garden done except a little room for extra tomato plants coming up from seed, another row of carrots as well as zucchini. the outside will get planted once she's weeded it with pumpkins and cucumbers or zucchini carrots and summer squash, who knows likely something which crawls so she won't have to take care of to much and where some other things were going to try something else like wild flowers to just let them grow although will have to weed it out and have nat take the weed wacker to where she weeded out where the grape vine was last year as it stayed cleaned out till near the fall and was so much easier and didn't take but a half hour to get clean. angels,ab,haley,april

HEY A.MOKI & FURSIBS!
GOOD MORNING ALL! NOW, WHO'S READY TO CONTINUE OUR FASCINATING JOURNEY DOWN KITTY MEMORY LANE TO VISIT THREE MORE KITTIES? I FIGURE THREE
KITTIES A DAY WITH BACK STORIES & PIX WILL WORK WELL. I HOPE TO KEEP THIS INTERESTING & BRING UP SOME FOND OLD MEMORIES! SO HERE WE GO!
FIRST, THANK YOU GIN GIN FOR THIS SUGGESTION....WE WILL HEAD BACK TO JAPAN TO VISIT TAMU THE TRAIN STATION KITTY! I HAD HEARD OF HER BEFORE BUT
HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR GIN GIN MIGHT HAVE OVERLOOKED HER! SHE LIVES IN KINOKAWA JAPAN & SHE IS....WAS...THE STATION MASTER AND OPERATING MANAGER
OF THE KISHIGAWA TRAIN LINE. SADLY SHE CAME OVER TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE IN JUNE 2015. SHE WAS BORN IN 1999 SO SHE HAD A WONDERFUL & INTERESTING
LONG LIFE! I MEAN, HOW MANY KITTIES CAN BE TRAIN STATION MANAGERS? THE TRAIN STATION WAS ABOUT TO SHUT DOWN BUT AFTER ADOPTING TAMU, IT
PROSPERED & STAYED OPEN! SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL CALICO AS YOU'LL SEE BY HER PIC.

NEXT STOP!!! WOOO WOO...WE ARE GOING TO VISIT RHUBARB THE CAT! HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN THE MOVIE "RHUBARB" WITH RAY MILLAND? IT'S THE BEST!
FUNNY THING BUT Q.LINGUINI MENTIONED JUST THIS MORNING IT'S ONE OF HER FAVORITES. MADE IN 1951 IT'S ABOUT A LONELY MILLIONAIRE WHO OWNS A
BASEBALL TEAM...THE BROOKLYN LOONS. THIS DOG-CHASING TABBY (PLAYED BY ORANGEY THE CAT) GETS ADOPTED INTO THE LAP OF LUXURY BY THE
RICH MAN, ONE THADDEUS J.BANNER AND GETS NAMED "RHUBARB". WHEN MR.BANNER PASSES AWAY, RHUBARB IS HIS SOLE BENEFICIARY. SO OF COURSE
HE IS NOW IN CHARGE OF THE LOONY LOONS. RAY MILLANDS CHARACTER IS NOW HIS CARETAKER. MR.BANNERS DAUGHTER IS MIFFED & CONTESTS THE WILL
ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT SHE IS NOW OWNED BY RHUBARB AS WELL! THE TEAM OF THE LOONY'S SOON DISCOVER THAT RHUBARB BRINGS THEM GOOD LUCK.
THEY ARE GOING TO PLAY IN THE BIG TIME FOR THE TITLE TIL THIS SHIFTY BOOKIE DECIDES TO KIDNAP RHUBARB. BUT WOOHOO! THE STREETWISE RHUBARB
ESCAPES HIS CAPTORS, GETS TO THE BALLPARK IN THE NICK OF TIME AND SAVES THE DAY!

OUR LAST VISIT FOR TODAY WILL BE TO THAT FINNICKY ORANGE 9-LIVES SPOKESCAT....MORRIS! THERE WERE SEVERAL MORRIS'S OVER THE YEARS. ALL OF
THEM RESCUES FROM THE SHELTERS! HIS FIRST INCARNATION WAS DISCOVERED IN 1968 & HIS FACE WAS PLASTERED ALL OVER THE CAT FOOD BRAND. THE FIRST
MORRIS PASSED IN 1978, & THE CURRENT MORRIS LIVES IN L.A. HE'S BEEN IN A FEW FILMS. THE LONG GOODBYE WITH ELLIOTT GOULD. AND SHAMUS WITH
BURT REYNOLDS. THE ORIGINAL MORRIS WAS BORN IN CHICAGO AND LEFT SOME PRETTY BIG PAWS TO FILL! I THINK HE'S TAKING US TO THE PURRINGTON
CAT CAFE, HIS TREAT, TODAY FOR TUNA WINGS (TUNA HAVE WINGS??) AND ANCHOVY PIZZA, CATBEER AND CATBURGERS. NO CATS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF
CATBURGERS.

BIRTHDAY TODAY IS PERCY #229924******DOPTY DAY....MAGIL #26605.....LIL #22606
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COTD K.BARNEY #74382

HEY A.MOKI & FURSIBS!
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE! AND WHO'S FEELING THE TINIEST BIT SQUIRRLY TODAY? AH, THAT'S GOOD CUZ I HAVE A TREAT FOR YOU! Y'SEE IN THE TOWN NEXT
DOOR, OUR SISTER CITY OF LONGVIEW WASHINGTON, IT IS ALSO KNOWN AS "SQUIRREL CITY". IT GOES BACK TO 1963 WHEN THE FOUNDING FATHERS
WERE GETTING TIRED OF SEEING THE FLUFFY TAILED LITTLE SQUIRRELS CROSSING THE BUSY ROUNDABOUT AT THE CIVIC CENTRE. SO SOMEBODY DESIGNED A
SQUIRREL BRIDGE SO THEY COULD CROSS OVER THE ROAD, THUS AVOIDING BEING ROAD KILL! I WAS SUCH A GREAT HIT AND EVEN MADE IT INTO THE GUINNESS
BOOK OF RECORDS! THE BRIDGE IS CALLED "THE NUTTY NARROWS". NOW THEY JUST UNVEILED THEIR 6TH NUTTY NARROW BRIDGE. THERE IS A LIVE SQUIRREL
CAM THAT WE HAVE SO WE CAN CHECK IN TO SEE IF ANY SQUIRRELS ARE CROSSING. THERES THE LAKE SACAJAWEA DOWN IN THAT NECK O'THE WOODS. THE LAKE IS CALLED THE JEWEL OF LONGVIEW AND REALLY COOL! JUST THIS PAST MONTH THEY HAVE MADE THE SQUIRREL THE OFFICIAL MASCOT OF LONGVIEW! AND EVERY AUGUST THEY HAVE THE ANNUAL SQUIRREL FEST. THE SANDBAGGERS, A GROUP OF BUSINESSMEN WHO SPORT RED/WHITE STRIPED JACKETS AND CRISP WHITE PANTS, ARE IN CHARGE OF ALL THE SQUIRRLY ACTIVITIES! IN THE CIVIC CENTER WHICH IS LIKE A SMALL PARK, THERE WAS A HAND CARVED GIANT WOODEN SQUIRREL. WHEN HE FINALLY GOT OLD AND DECONSTRUCTED, THE SANDBAGGERS HAD A NEW ONE MADE. THE CIVIC CENTRE IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE FIRST BUILDING IN LONGVIEW....THE MONTICELLO HOTEL BUILT IN 1925. CHEF GORDON RAMSEY CAME THERE LAST YEAR FOR HIS TV SHOW (ONE OF THEM) CALLED "HOTEL HELL". HE WASN'T THE LEAST BIT IMPRESSED BY THE CUISINE! HE WAS RUDE TO THE STAFF AND GAVE IT A TERRIBLE REVIEW! WHICH IS SAD CUZ IT ONCE WAS A GRAND OLD RED BRICK HOTEL.

BACK TO THE FUN EVENTS OF THE SQUIRREL FEST. THEY HAVE A MASCOT NAMED SANDY SQUIRREL WHO'S DRESSED UP AS A SANDBAGGER. THERE IS A KIDS
5K RUN, A "GO NUTTY" SQUIRREL FEST PARADE, ARTS & CRAFTS, FOOD VENDORS, KIDS GAMES & ACTIVITIES, KAREOKE, A BEER & WINE GARDEN AND LIVE
MUSIC. THIS YEAR EDGAR WINTER WILL PURFORM! OH IT'S SUCH A FUN EVENT! HOW ABOUT SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT OUR NUTTY SQUIRRELS? DID YOU KNOW
THEIR FRONT TEETH NEVER STOP GROWING? THEY PRETEND TO BURY NUTS IN ONE LOCATION TO THROW OFF THE NUT THIEVES! A NEWBORN SQUIRREL IS
ONLY ABOUT AN INCH LONG AND BALD? THEY BURY SO MANY NUTS THAT THEY FORGET WHERE THEY PUT THEM. SO THESE NUTS END UP GROWING MORE
TREES! THEY HAVE THEIR AMAZING COUSINS, THE FLYING SQUIRREL....A LA ROCKET J.SQUIRREL AKA ROCKY! SO HOWZABOUT WE ALL GRAB A BAG OF PEANUTS, HEAD TO THE CIVIC CENTRE AND FEED THOSE NUTTY SQUIRRELS? THEY'D LOVE THE COMPANY!

TODAY IS ANGEL JESSE'S BIRTHDAY #28989. HE'S HAVING A BIG BBQ BASH AT SUNSHINE MOUNTAIN. IM BRINGING SOME HOT AIR BALLOONS FOR A SCENIC RIDE!
ALSO IT'S A DOPTY DAY FOR PATCH GIRL KNIGHT #12767. CONGRATS TO OUR COTD CASHMERE #61835

OUR MOONPIE TODAY IS A PEANUT/ACORN CREME MOONPIE. OUR MOON TOON IS "NOT SO BRIGHT SIDE OF THE MOON" BY THE SQUIRRELS! HAVE A NUTTY DAY! LUVYA ELMIE

most of the action
happened wed-fri here this week, what with the outside work and things janet got done all before the doctor's appt. which was good just told to wear that wrist brace till she sees them again june first. no pain for most of last night as she kept it on for the first time in 3 nights! that's great janet, keep it up!
her back is killing her as well as her hip as we did get some rain which held off till very late afternoon for the middle to the tail end of rush hour and janet till that time was in shorts but grew a bit cool so changed into pants as the work ones she has on now are sticky feeling from it being humid here yesterday with the mid 70s. gonna do it again today as it's not her middle to lower back like wed-yesterday which was killing her as she iced it down and that's what it just needed to be iced and stopped hurting letting her sleep. she found a smaller one and put it up to her ankle too. the other day she got some basil plants from aldi's as well as petunias, dian-thus, for the memorial day pots she's gonna make which will be temporary as the potatoes which are coming up will get moved from their hanging pots to the ground ones once the holiday is over and she's going to take mommy up to sunderland soon if the place is open as the closer to memorial day we get and threats of frost the more people will come out to get plants for outside. mommy wants to go to a place over in hatfield so janet will have to do that after work either mon or tues as wed morning she and nat are going shopping at arnolds meats and ocean state job lot in chicopee. not to long from now janet's planning to take a day trip to the outlets in merri-mack,nh if nat wants to go along he's free to do so, as there might be just a trip up to keene/vermont combo planned as janet said they'd have to leave here around 6 as vermont coun-try store opens up early, trouble is the others don't open till 10 so they might do keene first or last she doesn't know as she might skip one christmas shop in vermont, but not the grocery store there wants to get some stuff at shaws as well as market basket and price chopper so the keene one might be a whole seperate trip and then there's the outlets in the southern berkshires as she now can't use the pike but instead go a longer way so will have to leave here earlier like 8 to get there on time and come home another way and do the christ mas shop in northern ct with it. and lastly llbean outside of hartford, ct which is now the closer store to us rather than central nh near the vt border. had some rain last night ad more coming in tonight with the stronger front. frost warnings are out for tues/wed mornings before the warm up starts on thurs-sunday later on this coming week. not much planned janet is going to do a chicken casserole this week as they just fini shed the one she did on wednesday last night. angels,ab,haley and april

sleepover tonight/sports day tomorrow
janet's been good about putting her feet up for the past few days but again keeps getting called into the living room to do something or other for mommy as nat took his first final and got an 82 and can't access the other one till friday so janet told him to do it while she's at work and not going out screwing off with is stupid cousin andy like andy keeps bothering him 2-3 times a day saying, "i'm bored, let's go out and do something." nat did so 3-4 times last week and so far this week once. trouble with andy is he is to lazy to get off his backside and get a steady job which everybody keeps after him to do seeing his girlfriend is due to have his baby at any time in the next month or so and well it is hard to sink into his cement brain to get a job and keep one. janet knows that there's a storm around her nose is dripping and eyes watering from the oak/birch pollen she's allergic to as sugar maples and red maples just don't bother her much at all, the pine still to come will knock her and mommy's socks off as there's not much anybody can do about that one! she's been icing her ankle the past 3 nights and it seems to help her to sleep bet-ter although she's waking up between midnight/1 thinking it's time to get up and going, only to roll over and go to sleep for another hour or so. her back is also telling her that the storm being pushed south of here is around and got rain fri afternoon/night into early sat morning coming in but with 70s till sun-tues with lower 60s. frost/freeze warnings abound around new england this morning too so she covered mommy's bleeding heart and forgot her coral bells but the other stuff will have to fend for itself. she got more broccoli yesterday at wally world while they were there and bought grinders for her and mommy and pizza for nat. had a great mother's day lots of outside plants but you already know that and topped off by take out from friendly's for lunch. nat got mommy a stuffed pickachoo since she collects them and janet a printer seeing it's been since before thanksgiving when hers died. angels,ab,haley,april

HEY ANGEL MOKI & FURSIBS!
HEY ALL YOU LITTLE MONKEYS NAUGHTY OR OTHERWISE! MOM ALWAYS CALLS US HER FLYING MONKEYS SO I THOUGHT WHAT FUN IT MIGHT BE TO EXPLORE
THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE FUNNY LITTLE CRITTERS. FIRST I THOUGHT OF THE SOCK MONKEY. I MEAN, IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO'S NEVER HAD
THEIR VERY OWN SOCK MONKEY AS A KID? MY MOM SURE DID AND ABOUT 15 YRS AGO SHE DECIDED IT WAS TIME FOR ANOTHER ONE. LUCKILY OUR SPORTING
GOOD STORE/TOY STORE HAD THEM. BOTH BIG ONES AND MINI'S. MOM GOT A COUPLE BIG ONES AND A MINI FOR HER CAR. SO HERE'S SOME FUN FACTS. I GUESS
YOU'VE NOTICED HOW MUCH I LOVE FUN FACTS? LEARNING SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY IS GOOD FOR THE OL' BRAIN. DID YA KNOW THAT UNDER EACH SNAPPLE
CAP IS A FUN FACT? OOPS, SORRY, I DIGRESS! SO ANYHOO, THE SOCK MONKEY IS A FOLK ART AND A KITCHY PIECE OF AMERICANA FROM DAYS GONE BY. THE MOST
DIRECT PREDACESSOR ORIGINATED IN VICTORIAN ENGLAND WHEN STUFFIES SWEPT EUROPE LIKE WILD FIRE. AS TALES OF EXOTIC ANIMALS FROM AFRICA
BECAME MORE WELL KNOWN, SO DID THE EXOTIC MONKEY! THE REST IS MONKEY HISTORY. JOHN NELSON, A SWEDISH IMMIGRANT WAS THE FIRST TO MAKE HIS
SOCK MONKEY FROM...YEP, YOU GUESS IT! THE RED HEELED SOCK! TODAY THEY ARE CALLED ROCKFORD RED HEELS. THE FIRST SOCK MONKEY WAS BORN IN
1932. YOU WILL SEE THE REASON FOR THE RED HEEL IN THE PHOTO I AM POSTING IN MY GALLERY. THEY ARE TO THIS DAY VERY POPULAR STILL AND AN AMERICAN
ICON!

THEY ARE EVEN FOUND IN BOOKS SUCH AS "MONKEY LOVE", "FRIENDS KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF" AND IN TONY MILLIONAIRES GRAPHIC NOVELS WHERE MR.
SOCK MONKEY IS THE MAIN CHARACTER. ALWAYS MONKEYING AROUND, THAT ONE...MOL! HE HAD A SERIES OF SOCK MONKEY COMICS AND PICTURE BOOKS
AS WELL. WOW, JUST NOW FOUND OUT TONY MILLIONAIRE IS THE BROTHER IN LAW OF ANDY RICHTER, CONAN O'BRIENS TRUSTY SIDEKICK! WHO KNEW? YET
ANOTHER FUN FACT. WHILE I'M ON THE SUBJECT OF ALL THINGS MONKEY, THIS BRINGS ME TO MY CHILDHOOD MEMORY OF HAVING HOMEMADE MONKEY BREAD!
ACTUALLY IT WAS MY MOMS MEMORY. AND NOW IT'S GONE ALL POPULAR AGAIN! THOSE SWEET LITTLE BUTTERY COATED NUBS OF DOUGH ROLLED IN CINNAMON
AND SUGAR, PILED ALL TOGETHER IN AN A BUNDT PAN AND BAKED. OH I CAN TASTE THEM NOW! YOU CAN MAKE HOMEMADE OR JUST GET THE POPPIN' FRESH
DOUGH FOR THE LAZY MANS RECIPE. BUT WHY IS THIS SCRUMPTOUS TREAT CALLED MONKEY BREAD? I HAVE NO IDEA BUT IT'S ALSO CALLED MONKEY BRAINS.
MONKEYS HAVE BRAINS? WHY AYUP, THEY DO! I LIKE THE NAME MONKEY BREAD BETTER. IT COMES FROM GERMANY ORIGINALLY. IT IS ALSO SAID TO RESEMBLE
THE MONKEY PUZZLE TREE. THERE IS ALSO A FRUIT CALLED MONKEY BREAD FROM THE BAOBAB TREE OF AFRICA. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COTD SISSEE KNIGHT #11531

OUR MOONPIE OF THE DAY IS MONKEY BREAD MOONPIE WITH A SIDE OF BANANA SMOOTHIE. AND THE MOON TOON? WELL, NONE OTHER THAN "MONKEYS
ON THE MOON" BY SOPWITH CAMEL! I KID YOU NOT! IT'S A REAL SONG! HAVE A GREAT MONKEYSHINE DAY! LUVYA ELMIE

HEY ANGEL MOKI...PART UNO!
HEY GIRL! AHHHHH...JUST GOT ALL MY BLOGS DELIVERED SO NOW I CAN COME OVER AND HAVE A NICE CHIT CHAT WITH YA. CAT CHATTIN' IS THE BEST. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE NICE THINGS YOU SAID ABOUT MY BLOGS. I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I MIGHT BE WRITING ABOUT DAY BY DAY. I JUST LET IT COME! IM SURE ALL OF YOUR FAMILY HAS BEEN TO PINTO ISLAND AND THE FULL MOON PAWTIES. WE INSIST ON ALL FAMILY MEMBERS COMING OVER. AND YOU KNOW YOU HAVE YOUR BEACH HUTS WAITING FOR YOU. YOU CAN DECORATE IN ANY STYLE YOU LIKE! HAVE FUN WITH DECORATING. I SAY YOUR HOME REFLECTS EACH OF OUR PURSONALITIES. MINE IS PINTO CHIC AND GRACIES IS MOONPIE CHIC. MOM HAS OUR HOUSE DECORATED IN THRIFT STORE CHIC.

IM GLAD TO HEAR YOUR PAWRENTS ARE DOING REASONABLY WELL, BUT GOSH A'MIGHTY! YOUR DAD SOUNDS JUST LIKE MY MOM, WHAT WITH THE NECK ISSUE. SINCE MOM FELL ABOUT 5 TIMES ON HER HEAD LAST FALL, SHE HAD A BRAIN BLEED AND HAS LOST HER SENSE OF BALANCE. AND HER ALWAYS STIFF NECK JUST GOT MORE SO, DAY BY DAY. IT'S BEEN 7 MONTHS NOW. SHE'S SEEN 2 NEUROLOGISTS, HER OWN DOC, A RADIOLOGIST, HAD X-RAYS, MRI'S. SHE THOUGHT THEY COULD DO STEROID INJECTIONS BUT THE DOCS POO-POO'D THAT SAYING THERE IS NO ROOM IN THERE AND THE RISK OF PARALYSIS IS TOO GREAT.

SO HE REFERED HER TO A PLACE THAT ELECTROCUTES THE NERVES. ALAS! THEY WOULDN'T DO IT EITHER! SEEMS MOMS L1 THRY L7 ARE ALL PANCAKED ON EACH OTHER AND IN PLACES THERE ISN'T EVEN ANY SPINAL FLUID! AND SHE HAS BONE SPURS, ARTHRITIS AND BULGING DISK. WHATTA BASKET CASE! DOES YOUR DAD HAVE ALL THOSE THINGS? WHILE MOM DOESNT GET PAIN, PER SE, SHE DOES GET THE ACHES AND STIFFNESS GALORE. SO SHE CAN'T DO THE CHIROPRACTOR CUZ THEY MIGHT SQUISH A NERVE AND PARLYZE HER. AND NO EXERCISE FOR THE SAME REASON. SO THE DOCS TELL HER BLUNTLY TO "SUCK IT UP". ZOO CREW MOM KAT SUGGESTED THE ARNICA GEL. MOM GOT IT BUT IT REALLY DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. IT WAS A GOOD IDEA AND WORTH A TRY.

MOM HAS MUSCLE RELAXERS AND VALIUM SO SHE'LL JUST HAVE TO KEEP UP WITH THOSE FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE. SHE MIGHT STILL HAVE 35 YRS LEFT! MOL...THE OL BABE IS NOW 66 YR AND HER GMA WENT TO 98! MOMS JUST LIKE GMA. MOM GETS THE TINGLY HANDS AND FEET NOW AND THEN, TOO. SHE WENT TO PORTLAND FOR A 4TH OPINION LAST WEEK AND THAT DOC, WHO TREATS THE PORTLAND TRAILBLAZER BASKETBALL TEAM, HAD THE SAME OPINION. NOTHING TO BE DONE SHORT OF SPINE SURGERY, WHICH THEY DON'T WANNA DO RIGHT YET AND MOM DOESN'T WANT EITHER.

HEY ANGEL MOKI....PART DOS!
WELL, YA CAN'T SAY MOM DIDN'T TRY EVERYTHING SHE COULD THINK OF. LILY'S MOM SEND MY MOM A GOOSE DOWN FEATHER PILLOW WHICH MAKES MOM MORE COMFY WHEN SHE'S ON HER SOFA BED WATCHING TV, WHICH IS MOST OF THE TIME! AND SHE SUGGESTED A NECK PILLOW WHICH MOM WILL LOOK FOR AT WALMART NEXT WEEK. MOM LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT AND IS GETTING A SORE BUTT SO SHE MIGHT NEED A BUTT PILLOW LIKE THE HEMMERHOID PEOPLE USE. IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING, AINT IT?

SO WHAT DOES YOUR DADS PT CONSIST OF? MOMS NECK IS TOO FAR GONE TO EVEN DO ANY EXERCISE FOR THAT. SINCE SHE DOESN'T HAVE GOOD BALANCE THET SUGGESTED PT FOR HER BALANCE ISSUE BUT SHE DOESN'T WANNA. MEDICARE WONT PAY FOR IT AND WE ARE POOR. SHE JUST WALKS SLOWER AND WATCHES HER STEP. IF SHE FALLS ON HER HEAD AGAIN, THAT COULD BE CURTAINS FOR MOM! THEN WHO'S FEED US? CAN YOUR DAD TURN HIS HEAD VERY FAR? MY MOM CAN'T, SHE HAS TO TURN HER WHOLE BODY AROUND AND HER NECK CLICKS AND CLACKS AND MAKES THESE RICE KRISPY SOUNDS.

THAT'S AWFUL THAT YOUR DADS INSURANCE WONT PAY FOR HIS MRI. THEY SURE AIN'T CHEAP. WE HAVE MEDICARE AND THEY PAY 80%. OH WAIT! I SEE THEY DID GET THINGS FIGURED OUT SO AS NOT TO BREAK THE BANK! YAY! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY TO YOUR SWEET MOM! SHE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE A DAY OVER 40! ONE IS ONLY AS YOUNG AS YOU FEEL. I GUESS MOM IS 100 IF YOU PUT IT THAT WAY BUT MENTALLY, SHE'S STUCK IN HER TEENS.

WELL, MY SPECIAL FRIEND IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE TO HAVE A NICE LONG CAT CHAT WITH YA. I CAN TELL YOU WE ARE TWO FURS OF A FEATHER IN THAT WE BOTH LIKE TO RAMBLE ON. JUST LIKE OUR MOMS! I GUESS I BEST BE TODDLING OFF AND GET BACK ON THE CATPAIGN TRAIL! HAVE A GREAT DAY! SEE YA MANANA! LUVYA A.ELMIE ♥

HEY ANGEL MOKI & FURSIBS!
THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR DAILY SUPPORT! TODAY WE ARE GONNA VISIT OTHER THINGS "PINTO". FOR EXAMPLE, WHO REMEMBERS THAT FUNKY LITTLE CAR, THE
FORD PINTO? IT WAS DEEMED THE ONE OF THE WORST CARS OF ALL TIMES. NOT CUZ OF IT'S LOOKS BUT CUZ IT WOULD SPONTANEOUSLY ERUPT IN FLAMES DURING
REAR END COLLISIONS! IT WAS ONLY IN EXISTANCE FROM 1971-1980. THE POOR PUT-UPON FORD PINTO HAD THE BIGGEST RECALL AT THE TIME IN AUTOMOTIVE
HISTORY. I SAY I AM PROUD TO BE IN THE PINTO FAMILY, FAULTY CAR OR NOT! I THINK I SHOULD GO VISIT THE SCRAPYARDS AND FETCH OUT ALL TOSSED ASIDE
FORD PINTOS, HAVE THE KITTY MECHANICS SPRUCE THEM UP AND BRING THEM DOWN TO PINTO ISLAND! CAN YOU IMAGINE ALL US KITTIES CRUSING AROUND
THE ISLAND IN OUR COLORFUL COMPACT FORD PINTOS? OF COURSE WE'LL HAVE OUR PINTO HORSES FOR THOSE WHO LIKE TO HORSEBACK RIDE. AND FOR THE
THE "KITTY" SET I WILL MAKE SURE THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF MINI PINTO PONIES!

I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY A LITTLE HISTORY ON THE PINTO HORSE. IT'S SOMETIMES CALLED A PAINTED HORSE. YOU KNOW LIKE IN THE WESTERNS HOW
SOME HORSES ARE CALLED "OLD PAINT". PINTO HORSES ARE ALSO CALLED SPOTTED, BUT WE PREFER "PINTO". WE AREN'T FOUND MUCH IN THE WILD AND WE
GO BACK FAR FAR BACK TO ANCIENT EGYPT WHERE WE WERE QUITE FASHIONABLE. OH, BUT WE ARE STILL VERY FASHIONABLE! OUR PINTO PATTERN COMES
FROM THE WORD "LEUCISM" WHICH MEANS PARTIAL ALBINISM BY PIGMENT RESEARCHERS. THE LARGEST PINTO POPULATION IS RIGHT HERE AND WE ARE VERY
POPULAR AMONGST THE NATIVE AMERICAN NATION. WE ARE ALSO CALLED BY THESE NAMES.......PIEBALD, SKEWBALD AND BI-COLORED BUT I STILL LOVE "PINTO"
THE BEST!

AND DID YOU KNOW THERE IS A BEAUTIFUL BRILLIANT PINK FLOWER CALLED.....WHAT ELSE? THE PINTO FLOWER! I PUT A PHOTO OF IT IN MY GALLERY FOR YOUR
VIEWING PLEASURE! IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE A HYDRANGAE. I HAVE ALSO FOUND A STORE CALLED "ISLAND SURF PINTO CASUAL CANVAS SHOES" SO I HAVE
STARTED THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN OUTLET ON PINTO ISLAND. SEE, WE ALL DO A LOT OF SURFIN' DOWN HERE, SO IT MAKES PURFECT SENSE, DONTCHA
THINK? THE SURF SHOP WILL CARRY WETSUITS, LEASHES (SURFBOARD LEASHES), SURFBOARD WAX IN MANY SCENTS, BOARD SHORTS, ALOHA SHIRTS, COOL
CAT SUN GLASSES, SUN VISORS, SUN SCREEN, BEACH CHAIR, LOUNGING CHAIRS AND OF COURSE MY FAVORITE......A VAST ARRAY OF FLIP FLOPS! AND THE BEST
THING IS, THIS STUFF IS ALL FREE! IT'S ON ME! JUST PICK AND CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANT WHILE YOU'RE HERE AS MY GUEST FOR THE NEXT TWO
MONTHS! GOSH, I FEEL LIKE DADDY CATBUCKS!

DID YOU KNOW THAT I FOUND A PAGE OF OFFBEAT HOLIDAYS? TODAY IS HUG YOUR CAT DAY, SO EVERYONE GET YOUR PAWRENTS TO GIVE YOU ALL PLENTY
OF GOOD HUGS TODAY. AND EXTRA FOOD WHILE THEY'RE AT IT!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR COTD COKIE #280165

TODAYS MOONPIE O'THE DAY IS THE EVER POPULAR S'MORES MOONPIE WITH A COLD GLASS OF BOSCO MIXED WITH MILK! AND OUR MOON TOON OF THE DAY
WILL BE OZZY OSBOURNE....."BARKING AT THE MOON". I GUESS WE COULD CHANGE IT TO MEOWING AT THE MOON? HAVE A SPLENDID DAY! LUVYA ELMIE

she's just gettting started on
all the blogging, first did both email/fb pages which by the time she goes to leave for the dentist around 8 will be all most filled up for sure! froggier than anything, but seems it's tarting to lift a bit as it's supposed to be gone by 8 this mor-ning when she leaves. she's still got some pain in both arms, but nothing like it was and hopes that she won't have to cut fruit as she thinks one of the students who'll be leaving in a week or two to go back to her home and store on the cape for the summer will be working tomorrow only day this week as it's finals so somebody told her and nat's is coming up soon too as she's got just chapter tests for the last part as the big work is all done. he's signed up for 3 courses this coming fall and 2 next spring to get his certificate in entre-peneurship and be done for a while to get his business really hopping on ebay more than it has been. janet's still got to do a good job brushing her eeeth ad flossing them before she goes as well as make another stinky pit stop. after she's home it's breakfast and wait till this afternoon to start weed ing out the old herb bed to ready it for flower seeds and plants which can't go in yet due to still danger of frosts and freezes. our next door neighbors leave florida next friday the 6th and should be home by the 8th as they're rushing things so it seems or maybe have appointments here early that week, don't know as nat's gotta get gas and mow their lawn needs it bad as ours was done before the rain and needs it again. looks like a wet week coming in but warmer mid to upper 60s each day starting into the 30s and 40s so beats the lower 40s highs of yesterday here and it was cold, but felt a bit warmer when janet walked around 7:30 last night usually she's gotten ready for bed and is about ready to jump in, but with it lighter later she will be able to walk just before going to bed now. can you believe mommy's stupid dentist office made the appt. for the same morning as her doctor's appt.??? well nat's gotta call as we have arrangements for a ride for that other day it was what we thought and try to get her in for that morning if possible otherwise that ride might be in jeopardy! if she doesn't weed, then will put some herb seeds on the south side and also plant the leeks which have to go out some of them and the others she doesn't know as they were just thrown into a planter tons of seeds and she got it at wally world and well doesn't know if she'll be able to plant those or not, but will have to go and get broccoli and sage as well as more leeks. oh some good news she and another got hours have been restored, but doesn't know like her dept. boss if the "slasher" store manager will cut them or not, but he said to plan on being back to 6-11 once again and 30 hours. angels ab,haley

we were off wednesday
and you guys yesterday. by the way the sleepover/sports days return tues/wed of the first week in may. got a humid front lift ing through right now and a cold front later tonight with boomers and the works more than likely. temps ranging from the 60s most of next week starting tomorrow through thurs. to the upper 50s on tues with rain and 70s again by a week from today next friday. showers again monday and wed night into thurs am. finally going to get some badly needed rain, with brush fires all around now we can use what we can get! janet's been good about keeping her feet up the past 3 afternoons sitting half in/out of the sun/shade working online till the battery in this stupid thing needed recharging. janet's going to weed this weekend as well as get the peas, lettuce and carrots in and hopes to turn over some of mommy's garden to get that started as well with some lettuce and carrots. she's cancel-ling her planned vacation, will email them this afternoon or call them to let them know and in it's place is booking a bus day trip so will hit the bank on errands on monday to get out the $$$ needed for that one then two shopping trips, one to ct to return some jeans to llbean and get 2 more pairs, then to southern nh, merrimack to outlets to return some track shoes there. she's running late again and wants to get out to walk and thus have time to get stuff finished up after she gets in time permitting of course. see ya tomorrow we hope! angels,ab, haley

there's a lot going on here as well!
janet sat out supervising them and slept that night straight through till 2:30 yesterday when she woke up and got going pronto since she had to be in for 6! after work she got online stuff done later than she liked, but that was due to the stupid clothes line breaking and all the clothes on it falling to the ground in two spots, so she had to rush to get all the stuff in to the basket and pins into their pail as nat came out and helped her to put two pieces of line into two different spots and then clothes back up on the lines which won't come down till later on this morning once she's in from work and after errands have been run more likely early this afternoon as she's going to sit outside like she did yesterday soaking up the golden rays while they last as tomorrow back to the 60s for the next few days as a cool front comes in with showers we hope as we need it bad tonight. she's planning on sitting out afer she gets in as we'll be near 80 and were 75 yesterday, so were matching temps like down your way. 44 here this morning warmest since the last time it rained here a few weeks back!
with all but the weeding done janet would like to get out there early after she's in from work tomorrow as it'll be just right to do that sort of thing, as well as plant some peas, lettuce, carrots, lettuce and a few other early things. still has to get broccoli as even wally world hasn't gotten that yet and usually does have them. birds are singing away outside right now as a mocker was singing likely most of the night for the first time in ages around here as he usually hangs about down the road and around southeast street!
we'll likely be offline wednesday due to early morning blood work followed by late morning check ins for all 3 of them and once home janet's got a chicken casserole to make in the oven or crockpot depends what she wants to do at the time to use up the roast chicken from supper last night. angels,ab,haley

it's feeling more like march outside
but the temps aren't they're almost 60!!! janet says with the wind chill it's more like it's into the lower 50s or upper 40s. we have a cool front going through sometime this morning and rain is supposed to move on in dropping us to the lower 50s for the high the rest of the day and being around freezing or upper 20s at night for the next few mornings.
janet finally got a brace of sorts for her ankle and won't find out till wed next week if it's the right sort or not, as all 3 of them have check ins for various things between 10-10:30 as nat is the last one so likely they won't be home from there till 11;15-30 or there abouts, and janet will be getting mommy up bright and early for 6 to make the blood work for 7am or just around that uptown as janet has to go there seeing her insurance won't cover it at her doctor's office strange that one as the last would and this one won't! got warmer temps coming on in after tomorrow's highs near 60 of the 60s through wed of next week and a slight chance of showers on sunday when we hit the lower to mid 70s. :) janet's hoping on getting out side to sit in her chaise lounger to read or do online stuff in the shade out front from the spruce tree as leaves are just starting to come out, but the cold/frosts/freezes have slowed things way down. most of the daffies got frosted and died which were in full bloom while others got all bent over and didn't come back up so it's just the later ones which will be a big delight to get pictures of when janet takes her car when ordinarilly she would've been out walking. tomorrow she takes mommy to get her hearing aide serviced in northampton for 9 so is getting her car's oil changed at her dealership at the same time so nat is going to keep mommy company. don't know if they will do any other errands over that way or not as janet wanted to do 2 other stops, but now that she's saving for her vacat-ion that's going to have to wait. she cancelled her erie canal bus day trip and they won't refund her $$ she paid, but she told them to resell that seat to somebody else. cheapskates that outfit is and found another going out in early august to long island for lighthouse cruise so is wanting to book that, but again doesn't think the $$$ is going to be there to do that seeing she wants to renew her license/registration through AAA in hadley saving her a trip to greenfield which she still has to make as mommy needs her id and nat has to renew his too! got errands to do after work thursday bank run, wally world and don't know if they'll do aldi's too or not. she is hoping nat will help her tomorrow afternoon while it's cool with the fence as well taking down half/rolling it up and moving poles as well as putting the new piece up, but thinks that is likely to wait seeing he's in the middle of doing a long paper for one online course and doing a fb page for his ebay business for the other online course. he figures after next spring he'll be done with everything get his cer-tificate

yes, the weather here
stinks here this week! got 1/2" snow yesterday which all melted by afternoon and more coming down right now for most of the day and should make it very interesting for the ride into work for janet this morning. if they usually say more than 3" of snow she stays home, but is getting braver and is going into work despite her outer right ankle. she says it appeared out of the blue, as she doesn't know if it was the shoes she wore on the long walk up/back to the church or from something else. she says it throbs some on and off and well she sits here and puts it in the up position and it helps some, but can't afford to take time off from work due to only 24 hours for the entire year! they finished up the last of the scal-loped potatoes and had the ham she was going to put in it as well as finishing the lima beans so tonight it's hamburger helper or pasta/tomato soup/hamburg as a change of pace. well she has to stop so she can get to other entries here finish up and get onto fb to do as much on both pages there she can be-fore breakfast which is at 6 this morning so she can leave here and warm up the car before 6:15 when she leaves 45 mins early to take her sweet time getting into work safe and sound. angels,ab,haley

happy april fools day!
that's a big nope for the garden work, only the pine needles and black plastic got done, the wind punched a big hole in janet's sails yesterday and now she's not feeling good at all as the bank teller asked her yesterday if she felt okay, janet said yes, when she meant to say no! she's not been able to sleep good for around a week now and with night sweats on/off as well as being just stuffed up and icky feeling the sinus infection or sinus flu which nat started in jan and mommy in feb finally caught up with her and she's got it again. likely with the lousy weather and cold to warm and back and forth isn't helping her and neither are the allergies which right now aren't quite as bad as they were a few weeks back when the first of the poplar trees were in bloom. that's past and the next ones should be birch/late poplar then near the last oak and pine which really take the wind out of her sails. but this punched it and instead of getting outside yesterday to clean out around the fence she was in here doing online stuff till near 4 and in her recliner waiting for the turkey-broccoli bake to finish warming up she made it on wednesday with the broccoli she did for easter, but saved it instead for this. she's headachy/stuffed up and hurts around her eyes but right now not to bad like it was when she was trying to get back to sleep but just kept moving around! she'll work with it like she has to due to a cut in hours from 30 to 24 and time change too from 6-10 to 7-11 which in some ways is easier for her as she will be able to walk soon before leaving for work/break-fast and then delete the other late morning walk which usually doesn't get taken, but might today if it's not booming as we're near our high for the day already mid 60s!! going down to the 50s and morning rain tomorrow, mid 30s snow showers on sunday to a sinker and lower 40s on monday, colder upper 30s on tuesday partly sunny and sunny with mid 40s on wednesday. it's also the ONLY wed free of no appts. running around all month for janet as the other 3 are booked solid and a few days into may already! the garden work she might try to do a lit-tle on wednesday, as she's also planted pansies out front and has rosemary ready to go in as well as lavender seeing she lost her big one and got another one at wally world those will go in one out front and the others on the south side, but we have a carpenter coming soon to put stuff on the roof to kill the fungus and crap growing on it as he did it last late spring and killed some of janet's flowers, the others came back but not like they should've. angels,ab,haley

janet's way behind too this morning
as she's now doing weekend hours on weekdays sleeping in till 2;30 just about getting up and rushing to get online by 3 and do ing as much as she can between that time and breakfast and has gotten some entries into fb done at least one and responded to some email as well. haley is sure playing her typical in/out this morning and well janet's had to leave her door open as it's cooled down more and was at 44 cloudy outside when she took pep-per out around 2:50 this morning. supposed to be around upper 40s to lower 50s and damp at times then dry the rest of the day till the rain moves in tonight and some say ending tomorrow morning while others are saying rain all day. we get what we get and like it if it's rain it's okay and well as long as it doesn't fall on easter morning to early mid afternoon that's fine. we'll be mostly 50s and 60s from tomorrow through the end of next week with rain sunday night into monday, showers/rain on fri/sat and dry and sunny the other times.
nat had a good 6 month cleaning/check yesterday and doens't go back till late in october just before halloween. janet almost finished blogging but had to stop shy of the last 2-3 which she finished up when she got back and ALL online stuff was done by 2 when nat wanted to walk the big block as they took pepper so she got in 2 walks yesterday too! then janet went to him when supper was baking in the oven almost done to walk again and he said now not later, so did the little block and quite a bit of traffic too going home.
she's got minor changes to the menus for easter toast to cin-namon buns for breakfast and then broccoli/string beans from peas and succotash, otherwise they're gonna spoil. she'll do those on sat late morning afternoon and the cherry cheesecake as well. otherwise it's anglo-american shepherd's pie tonight through saturday with irish soda bread. angels,ab,haley

we're happy too that
we didn't get more than 1/2" snow here and it melted all fast so that it's called poor mans fertilizer by farmers going way back as janet remembers being told that by both grandparents when they were alive. didn't last longer than a few hours as it was already gone by 9 and traces lingered through till mid afternoon in shadier or protected spots and janet got a few pictures of what was left as well as the first of her daffies opened up and blossoming. we got to the lower 50s yesterday and didn't feel like it as that wind was something else! felt more like the 30s and you felt it too when outside or walking which janet was waiting for nat as he said he would go with her and never did so she ended up going mid afternoon by her-self and that was it for the day! was to cold by after supper as nat just was out of it with his new pokemon stuff and then had bought more when out with his loopy cousin for a few hours as well. we'll see the sunrise this morning, but won't see the sun set or going down clouds coming in this afternoon with a series of fronts/storms coming in 2 this week and then a series of bunches of them next week but temps into the 50s and 60s not the 40s like they were saying! with the showers com-ing in tonight snow up north as they totally missed out on the last storm we got yesterday. was 34 when janet took pepper out and might have gone down a bit more, but going to the mid to upper 50s today and lower 60s with morning showers tomorrow and then drying out through thursday and rain on friday. janet and nat ran a few errands over to target/her store yes-terday as they had to get a few things and janet hopes to do some baking soda bread which was to have been done for st. pat rick's day, but didn't get the raisins for it so a week later but beats nothing might be for easter. then made goulash which will last for supper tonight and tomorrow night maybe into thursday and she wants to do a shepherd's pie as well but might wait till sometime next week to do that after the easter leftovers are done and gone. looks like most of next week will be wet everyday and 50s/60s so not to bad. hoping nothing running around wise today! angels,ab,haley

guess what?
mommy is doing a whole lot better thanks to the new new inhalers, nebulizer, meds which she's taking. she's slowly being weaned off of the prenisone gradually and starts taking 1/2 as of tomorrow, then next wenesday down to 1/4 through till when she sees her again on the 30th. kate said, "finally i can hear your voice clearer than it was last week when there wasn't hard-ly a sound but coughing/wheezing! we're so happy that she's a lot better and doesn't go back now till early morning on the 30th which makes it easier for janet and just has to take nat out mid morning on wednesday to see his dentist for a 6 month cleaning/check at 9;45. she's booking into a motel in north conway, nh for june and it;s all set booked in june 25-29 as i really need it bad after the 3 deaths and stress of that and the holidays have to have time to recover and recharge! finally warming up to the lower 60s today and tomorrow, with rain tonight and boomers before the cold front moves on through tomorrow late afternoon/night and only 40s from friday-tues., then 50 on wed and 60s after that. hoping easter won't be a bugger either, but a good one so janet can walk to sunrise service in the dark then home in the light to do her famous breakfast inside cookout in the oven instead of outside. she's got more blogs and online stuff to try and get done asap if she can so she can either sit outside this afternoon while it lasts or get the other garden fence down and some new "old"chicken wire fencing back up and the poles with it. angels,ab,haley

errands tomorrow plus some shopping for things which are on sale and get them before they go off and then she's doing online food shopping for friday instead of going out.

march is in like a lamb,
but feels more like a lion thanks to the roaring winds ever since the cool front moved through when janet and nat were on their last of 3 errands yesterday. the angel in the picture is maitai who lived to be 18 and was blind at 14 and did just fine around the house as her full name was mollie-maui-molokai! janet tacked the extra names onto it as it sounded better. we were warm till the front did go through then you had to wear something as the wind makes it feel 10 degrees colder than it actually is which was 40 this morning and feels more like 30! we did get a few showers/light rain when janet and nat were out, but stopped in time as the sun was coming out around 2 when they walked the big block with pepper.
nobody scheduled for melon bar and it's her guess that they are wanting janet to do as much as she can before she leaves today at 10 which isn't much seeing she was to have gone up-stairs to do the computer work which has to be finished before the end of the day on friday and with the cut hours, no way by the looks are all going to get it done too. she will see about going up today before she leaves and the melon bar work just won't get filled so if upper management visits her and other stores they're gonna find empty spaces as they will on thurs-day as there's nobody scheduled for that or salad bar since janet now has it off and is working tomorrow instead!
she's taking mommy uptown late this afternoon to have the mole removed and will walk around town while it's being done and drop off an order at a sub/pizza spot on her way up and pick it up when she has to go back to get mommy and then come home or get it after she gets mommy and picks it up on their way home. doesn't matter either way to her. we'll be offline on thursday due to mommy's early morning appt. down in spring-field and stopping at ocean state job lot on their way home to see about some wool socks nat loves and needs to wear with the way the weather is up and down. we'll hit the 60s wed/thurs next week with showers on thursday. also 30s thurs/fri and like today/tomorrow this coming weekend and monday 40s! angels,ab,haley

It seems that when I had that “talk” with the fleas and gremlins about how they’d better quit messin’ around with our beloved CC or else, I musta thrown a scare into all you kitties too. Looks like we’re goin’ into our 4th day where NO one’s brave enough to climb up into the COTD window! Why, I musta even scared ‘em over at the other channels … Dog and Horse Channels’ Windows of Fame are also empty, while Bird and Small Animal Channels have had the same member in theirs since Saturday! And we won’t even talk about how long that Tank of the Week has been in the window over on Fish Channel!

Yeah, weird events are happenin’, but really, what would you expect with me in the Castle? None of it stops the kitties workin’ on their beer can boats. K. Bennie is doin’ a great job tendin’ the beer can shed and Angel Misty & her sisters have commandeered their Dad’s lawn tractor to help shuttle the cans to the various buildin’ projects.

Angels Gracie & Max have dibs on the Fosters, Bud Lite and Dad’s Root Beer empties for their vessel “Ol’ Rootie Tootie”. K. Tuck’s project is still under wraps, but he just took delivery of a coupla kegs and some beer taps? What IS that boy up to?

Spanky Jack is collectin’ Pepsi cans to put together a patriotic lookin’entry. He’s lookin’ for paint now to stencil the name on with. And that begs the question, when ya christen a beer can boat, just what DO ya use?

Angels Red, Moki, Duchess and Frosty’s creation is comin’ along so well that they are considerin helpin’ their Earthling sisters Mischief & Dayzee. MOST Angelic of ya, but remember we wanna keep Dayzee very very busy so she will stick close to home. Gin Gin has gotten together with Maggie Meme and her niece Spike and they are hard at work. Sebs & Timothy have gone for Labatts Blue and Strohs empties to create their masterpiece.

The mystery of Mimi’s missin’ Old Rats Breath empties has been solved. Turns out that her brothers Blackstone & Grayson ran off with ‘em and were playin’ a rousing game of Kick the Can. Psst … I think Mimi mighta kicked THEIR cans, know what I mean?

Close call at MY house, Mom almost found all the cans that Puzzle brought over and stuffed under Mom’s bed! Why, Mom mighta sent my little sis Moji Blackbear to Rehab if Evie hadn’t found the stash first! She’s cleared ‘em out and she & A. Shai and his sibs are all puttin’ ‘em to good use.

Throughout the grounds of Mallow Castle we hear the sounds of kitties at work with staplers, scissors, hammers and of course that miracle substance, duct tape. K. Steve had a little trouble with his glue gun, though. (whisper) I don’t think anyone will notice that patch of missin’ fur! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Good morning, loyal subjects! If anyone ain’t heard yet, Dayzee is HOME!!

And in that celebratory spirit, have I got a treat for ya today! My Royal Greenskeeper Q. Mimi has been workin’ hard and the climbin’ orchids look really great on the walls of Mallow Castle. Now that we found out who’s been markin’ his territory on ‘em and dealt with the problem in a timely fashion, that is. But Mimi wanted to have this appointment in the first place so that she could do a very special project for us.

Some of ya might remember that when Mimi was Queen CC had some ginormous issues and went down for a whole week! That is one entire week of Mimi’s time in the Castle just gone poof! And because of this outrage, my pal Mimi got Gremlin’d right outta some plans she had to build us a rockin’ Royal Extreme Adventure golf course! Well, that will never do! I told Mimi that durin’ my time as Queen we are gonna see if we can make her vision happen.

So without further ado, let’s grab our clubs, sign our waivers and try our luck. Circulatin’ around the course for our convenience will be Guest Chef Engine in her mobile Weiner Wagon, purveyin’ her finest cuisine. She has Crispy Canaries on sticks, Flash-Fried Filet of Frog and Buttered Bat Biscuits. And that’s just for starters, wait’ll we get to the clubhouse! Saucy Mouse Ribs with a side of Crispy Crouton and Catnip Casserole, anyone?

So, did I hear someone poo-pooh-in’ that golf is a boring game for old dudes? Not around HERE it ain’t! We are talkin’ Extreme Adventure after all! This means that OUR water hazard is not just a pretty pond, a big guy we affectionately call “Ol’ Toothy” has taken up residence and ya never know when he or his pals will show up to try & carry your clubs! I’d advise ya to tip’ em well! And remember, those large patches of sand are part of the golf course, NOT the emergency facilities.

There are some pictures down in my gallery, enjoy! Oh … and watch out for the last hole, it’s a doozie! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

we're trying to make our blogs
shorter due that janet is going to try and go into work, but if it's really slippery, then she has to wait till after 6 to call into produce to make sure that they get the message seeing the night crew writes it down, but leaves it at the front desk in-stead of giving it to the right departments so that the managers of those depts, or others working there don't get the messages. not fair janet says and she didn't get sick pay for the last time she did call in last monday when we got the 5-6" of snow which didn't come till late morning.
we did get 2" of snow/sleet mix and it was mixing with freezing rain when she was getting ready to come in from shov-eling and had finished it from 2-3 after also taking off what she could of her car and tarp which is being left over till she goes to leave for work otherwise it would be all icy and a mess to clean up again. as it is she's planning on leaving earlier to get there on time a half hour early should do just the right thing, but if she's late well better late than not at all. supposed to stop sometime this morning too and not go over to the plain rain till later on once temps have risen above freezing. she stayed till noon yesterday cutting all the fruits so the other girl who was doing veggies and things was just putting them together to get the bar all filled up if janet misses work today, then she has to go in tomorrow on her day off and work 6-11 or 7-12 doesn't matter as long as she is covering the day off somehow, but she'd rather have tomorrow off so will likely go in despite the crap this morning. angels,ab,haley

We had a blast yesterday pawtyin’ our whiskers off at Mallow Castle!

Now let’s tote up the Valentine’s Day carnage, shall we? First of all, at the MHL Arena we had a surprise weddin’ between Angel Shilo and Angel Q. Snuggles! Then our pal K. Pete announced his engagement to his sweetie Neekah Boo! My fellow Hairballz rider CoCo also got engaged to a nice kitty named Sunshine who’s a housemate of another of my fellow Hairballz riders, Maggie Meme. Congratulations, all you lovebirds!

I think the little guy with the arrows has packed ‘em away for another year and all you confirmed singles out there, the coast is clear.

Now that I’ve got a chance to read the weekend newspaper the Hairballz dropped off for me, what should I find but another brand-new lost & found story! It’s about a human named Robert Connell and his special friend, a gray kitty named Hemi.

The Connells were livin’ in North Carolina in 2009 when they found Hemi as a kitten on the engine of their car. Robert was in the Marines, and Hemi was more than just a cat to him. He was like a person, who could listen to some of Robert’s deepest thoughts as he struggled with PTSD.

In 2011, Robert was deployed for a year and after he left, Hemi went missin’.

“He went looking for Robert when he was deployed. I was heartbroken when he got out and we couldn’t find him,” Jennifer Connell told Love Meow. After months of searching, the Connells hadda make a move to North Dakota without their beloved pet.

Then, about two weeks ago Hemi was found by Craven Pamlico Animal Services at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. Staffers found a microchip on him which led them to Robert & Jennifer Connell, who were stunned to get the good news all the way from North Carolina!

This cool story don’t end there, either. See, Hemi was scheduled to fly to his new home in Bismarck North Dakota, but the bad snow storms they’ve just had out that way meant that thousands of flights were cancelled, including Hemi’s. Did that stop Robert? No it did not! He decided to drive the close to 2,000 miles to bring home the beloved friend he hadn’t seen in four years.

Trinity Smith, Craven County animal control supervisor, tried to talk Connell out of the drive because of the bad weather he was certain to encounter along the way. A weekend blizzard walloped much of the eastern U.S., including parts of the Carolinas.

"But he's a Marine," she said.

Connell left home Saturday and arrived Monday afternoon at the shelter.

“Geez, you look a little older and wiser,” Connell told Hemi when he first saw him.

Craven Pamlico Animal Services took the opportunity to urge all pet owners to microchip their furry friends just in case they go missing, like Hemi. But we knew that already, didn’t we? ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Kitties are still relaxing around Mallow Castle, and after Queen MJ finishes sharing her last two Lost & Found stories kitties start to speak up about their own families’ experiences. Kelsee says:

“Mom told me that her Grandma moved away from Detroit up North to Oscoda and couldn't find her cat on the day she left, so they moved without it and came back several times to look for it at the house and never found it. But one day they heard a meow at the back door of the new house and lo and behold..that darn cat found her way to the new home all by herself...they knew it was her cause she still had her collar on”

Furry heads nod in agreement and Rhoamin adds:

“Mom and dad had a gray tabby named Spunky who hitched a ride one day and ended up in another town about 30 miles away!!!!

When he was about a year old, he had gotten hit by a log truck and amazingly survived with only having to amputate his tail as he had no control of it and a fractured pelvis. He looked like a Bobcat after his tail gone as he had the black fur tufts on both ears like a Bobcat.

One day, there was a Lin Care van at the neighbors and Spunky was a curious guy and got in the van. By time the driver got to his next destination he had been surprised by a cat! He asked the people if they could keep him till he could find the owners, as he had an idea the kitty was Mom & Dad’s. A week later when the man came back to the neighborhood he asked Mom if they were missing a kitty. He told Mom & Dad where Spunky was, so they called the people who were keeping him & made arrangements to go get him the next day. Turned out that they knew each other!!!!”

KC and the Zoo Crew have a story to tell too:

“Our Mom has had three cats go missing, and two of them were eventually reunited with her. The first cat got lost when the family moved. Mars came with them but apparently got lost the first time she was let out and ended up back in the old neighborhood. For months people would call saying they'd seen her and Mom would go looking, only to be disappointed. Then, after a full year, Mars showed up at the new house! There were identifying features that proved it was actually Mars come home. Mom was a teenager then and was so happy to have her cat back!”

Everyone smiles as Kelsee has the last word “...and people say dogs are smarter then us...NO WAY!!!!”

I’ve got no argument with THAT! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

♥ Mom~Lillian here to Thank You for Honoring TC on his Forever Sleep Anniversary of One Year on 2/09/2016 and also for the sweet gifts left for him.

♥ TC was about 1-1/2 to 2 years old when he showed up in our back yard. He wouldn't let us get close to him as he would swat with his polydactyl paws. After awhile he got to where he liked being petted, but only for a few seconds then the swatting would start. That boy was so full of life!

♥ I always called TC our "Free-Souled" boy! He originated two streets over from us, but ran away from his home cuz of the teenage son abused TC terribly. The dad felt really bad for TC, but tried to keep tabs on him to make sure he had food. He seen TC was cared for by us and told us why TC left and he was happy we took TC in.

♥ TC lived with us for a few years then xplored other places, but would come back to visit. He finally came back to live with us after going without food and had lost a lot of weight. He finally ended up getting sick so I had him stay in the back room where he loved being and lived out his time. TC was loved and knew it!

this is the last blog
for the day on cc as janet's gone through another page to get to a few others who disappeared off and are on our list of regulars to write to! might have to do that for one more we still want to say happy superbowl sunday even though we don't like or watch football at all! oh well at least the snow is down to 2" out there having melted/settled that much in the past few days and with more due in tomorrow afternoon before the first cold front janet's not walking when she gets in, but instead will be raking the crap off the roof or trying to get to what she can as we'll be near 46 today and that's prime melting stuff. she says likely the sides of the streets will be slushy and water running down the sides. just very happy that the storms coming as of right now won't amount to much, but aren't going to say more than that or jinx things like the last time when we got 5"! highs next two days only lower 30s then rising to 40 on wednesday and more melting just ahead of the coldest outbreak so far this year/season with highs only into the teens to 20 sat/sun and near 30 on friday all with below/above 0 for starts! not looking forwards to that, but once past it we'll be back near 40 and a sinker as of right now for tuesday next week. no appt.s this week in store, but one on wednesday next week when mommy has to have her hearing aide serviced, adjusted which shouldn't take to long. just happy the grocery shopping was done even though it was totally nuts at her and other stores yesterday due to all being out with nothing better to do as natty always says, their all loonies to which janet replied we're one of them today! she also had to get gas since there was only 1/3 left in her tank as she's been letting it go down that much. she's going up on the ladder to check gutters as well as rake the roof since nat shoveled twice on friday, this excuses him from doing this as he says it doesn't need it as it's melting, but master was like that back in '05 and that's when it leaked into janet's bedroom. no doubting things anymore like he's doing now! not much more has gone on so we'll go and see ya soon! angels,ab, haley

we're really short on time this morning
so will tell you highlights if you don't mind? janet found it was snowing when she left/got to work and was already starting to pile up, and when she got out took her 20 mins to get all the snow off as we had a lot more than predicted and 2" more after she got home too as it took a 40 mins to crawl home seeing the stupid town didn't plow till after the snow had stopped here around 2. nat was also put out that he ended up shoveling twice when janet said she would help, she didn't get out till he was almost done with the next door neighbors house her with pepper and then walking up the street and over to a relatively new conservation area off of bay road taking pict-ures. she stayed at work till 11:45 and took 40 mins to get home as it usually takes her 15 getting to/from there as the roads were in bad condition. got up to 45 yesterday so it was melting which was nice and will through wed. as temps will re-main for the most part a bit warmer than usual above freezing in the daytime and below it at night. really cold stuff holds off till thurs and next weekend when it'll go below to just above 0 for the first time this year and chances at snow will be minor so they say tues/wed/sat and the bigger one on the 15th. janet says since grocery shopping was put off from yes-terday till today that she will not work past her 11 today, but will stay tomorrow as late as they want her. angels,ab, haley

WELCOME TO THE CAT CHANNEL URBAN IDITEROD!!

Actually, so many kitties wanted to involve their canine pals that I’m invitin’ the NICE Kitties’ brother King Angel Spike from Dog Channel for a cross-Channels event. The race starts at King Spike’s Castle and runs through four checkpoints with the finish line at Mallow Castle.

Guest Chefs Colt, Winchester and Kimber are on hand as the kitties start to arrive, they have trays of their famous fudge, shaped into crowns and stars for the occasion. Very artisitic, ladies! No gobblin’, you doggies!

At the starting line waits Puzzle, curled up in his cozy cat bed with the green flag in his paw. When King Angel Spike announces the start of the race, Adorkable smacks Puzzle hard. He wakes up, waves the flag and …. THE RACE IS ON!!

An early lead is taken by Team Zoo Crew, with their big doggies Lokje and Jada dressed like cats and pullin’ hard while Sasha, Pique, KC and the kitties mush ‘em on! With an actual Malamute and Husky to pull ‘em, this team is gonna be hard to beat but Team NICE might just be able to pull it off! Trixie and Patches are mushin’ their sibs and the family dogs like experts!

Reachin’ the first checkpoint at the MHL Arena, Team Whiskers has surged ahead. Lookin’sharp in their Russian fur hats K. Whiskers, Callie, Orangie & Whitey have recruited some doggy friends they met on their stroller walks, promisin’ them gumbo and fudge for pullin’ the cart. Winchester & Angel Chyna are ready to make good on that promise. As the teams pass the checkpoint they receive mugs of Jambalaya Gumbo with mild or hot sauce to keep ‘em goin’ along the course.

For a while, Team Whiskers is neck in neck with Team Royal Squadron, where K. Pete is helpin’ Ms. Murphy & Raven pull a shoppin’ cart decorated to look like a plane, while Q. Talley hollers “mush!” and waves to her hubby as her team manages to pass his. “For now!” calls K. Whiskers with determination and promises the doggies more fudge.

Next checkpoint is the DC Dog Park where Commere and Tank are dishin’ out gumbo as fast as their paws can go! Here comes Team Georgia Peach, where Q. Gin Gin has decorated her cart with camellia blossoms and catnip sprigs and VI Kitties Crush, Cashmere and Cisco are pullin’ like mad, with some help from Gin Gin’s neighbour doggie.

Team Screamin’ Mimi was ready to start this mornin’ at first light, and they have been holdin’ their own ever since! Q. Mimi is dressed as a hula dancer complete with grass skirt as she mushes her brothers JC, Maxwell, Blackstone and Greyson along.

Ooops! I ran outta room … the race continues tomorrow! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

as you can see
yes, we did change the pictures which nat chose another of the angels and next moth it'll either be poppy, puffy, or maitai. this one was his favorite mouthie or ralph mouth and a very hand some maine coon we had till he was 12 then renial failure claim-ed his life as his kidneys stopped working much similar to sandy but she had kidney disease and failure as well as rapid onset demensia. well both are in the picture so janet has her fav-orite and so does natty! the other is ab who thinks she belongs to natty and stays with him all the time, unlike haley who spends more of her time with janet than natty or mommy now, but still is his kitty.
they did get out after she got in to the bank, then staples where mommy got a tablet which they are sending to her as there wasn't any in stock and then target where janet and nat picked up a few food items as well as milk as it's good and is cheaper there than aldi's or the local gas stations. we did hit 60 late morning then the cool front moved through and temps started to tumble into the lower 50s for the afternoon and upper 40s by late afternoon. we had 38 yesterday morning and are back down to 26 here this morning going to the upper 40s to near 50. tomorrow rain showers in the morning to heavy rain 1/2-1" coming in totaled with the heavier rain and 60! then down we go to the lower 40s through next wednesday. also a sinker 1-3" slop before to rain and then into reverse mode for wed ending as 1" white stuff as it moves away and temps dropping to the lower 30s for daytime highs. knew that the arctic cold would be back and there you have it 6 weeks away till spring! nothing today janet's hoping on getting the walk and outside to pick up sticks/branches and put them into boxes in the garage to stay dry for using for the grill in the summertime. haley,ab,haley

January 31 ~ Angel Mallow's last word ~
Wow, the last day of my campaign is here! It looked for a while there like the CC Gremlins were gonna try and keep me off the Throne, not to mention from postin’ my final campaign blog, but we pulled it off! Whew! I was gonna do a wrap-up speech today, but then I realized I just might have one last Lost & Found story to tell. It’s about our Angel Smokey and the second time Big Bro Joe saved his life.

One day when Smokey was about 10, he didn’t come in for supper. Which was unusual. And he wasn’t there in the mornin’, either. OR when the kids got home from school.

The kids and the pawrents looked all over, Mom dismantled the woodpile in the back yard, they checked the shed to make sure he didn’t get locked in and checked every hidin’ place they could think of. They walked around the neighbourhood but no sign of Smokey. Everyone was worried, but Big Bro Joe was a young man on a mission! As soon as he came home from school, never mind playin’ or watchin’ TV, he was out lookin’ for his Smokey!

The third day, Joe came runnin’ into the house “I found Smokey!” Mom went out and sure enough there he was, tucked into a little cubby that the humans didn’t even realize existed, where two sections of fence overlapped right at the end of the neighbours’ hedge. Smokey wasn’t stuck, he could come out
by himself but wouldn’t. When Mom reached to touch him, he growled at her! So Dad came out with his big coat and leather gloves, Mom held a baby quilt while Dad reached into the cubby & pulled out Smokey, who still had some fight in him but not very much. Dad plopped Smokey into the blanket, Mom wrapped him up tight and they were off to the vet.

Turned out that Smokey had a really nasty abscess and needed surgery right away. Poor guy had crawled into that little hidey spot to be safe while he sat at the foot of the Rainbow Bridge and waited for the Angels. But thanks to Big Bro Joe it wasn’t time for that yet.

After Smokey did cross and I came to live with the family, one of the things he came back to teach me was that if ya don’t feel right, stick close to the humans. And I listened.

========================
I wanna take this time to say thanks to all of you who have come along on my campaign with me. Thanks for the comments, the support, the laughs, the goodies and of course the votes. I have some fun things planned for my time in the Castle in February, and I hope you’ll enjoy ‘em.

Let’s all give a round of thanks to King Miles for his great reign as King of January!

Come tomorrow: It’s a Marshmallow World!!

❀ Your January COTM Candidate, Angel Mallow ❀

PS from A. Mallow
One very cool thing about yesterday's story, I got a blog this mornin' from the Pawty Animals, and their Mom knows the part of Petaluma and the creek where Dallas woulda been livin' those 13 years. She says it's quite a wilderness area with lotsa small critters and fish in the creek, and feral colonies too. Still, 13 years is a LONG time, especially in feral years!
