Nicknames: Reddy Freddy, Baby Boy and Purr Baby

Age: 18 years old

How We Met

Red came to us in October of 2003. I started feeding him outside. He would usually run, but this particular time, he only went down to the bottom of the steps. I put food out for him and he came back up and started eating. I was able to pet him and we became friends. I sat out there with him for a long time and he just started purring and rubbing all over me and giving me headbonks. The next day we invited him in and he spent the night. He didn't go back outside until the following March. He was never afraid of the dogs and he just sort of moved in. He is the most loving of any kitty we have ever had the pleasure of sharing our home with. We took him to the vet a week later and had him vaccinated and neutered. At that time, we were told he was 5-7 years old, so we made him 6.
He developed a heart problem in Nov. '10, but we managed it with medication. Then his heart finally gave out. He was our baby and we miss him so much. We will love you forever, sweet boy!

sports day!
still isn't to great as rain is supposed to move in shortly and janet has to get mommy up in 15 minutes so they will be able to leave here on time for the doctors for 8:15 which means leaving the house by 8. more lower 50s coming in seems we're stuck of like a broken record. april is out in the living room somewhere for right now with her sisters watching her as ab is the chicken of the bunch a big fat sissy!!! haley was already in here before janet walked the big block as she got out and did it before the rain moves on in and is doing a bit of blogging before getting mommy up to selected friends as we'd not leave you and a few others out of course not! break fast is going strong and the games are underway outside as well as inside seeing the sleeping bags and blankets are now being put away for the late risers.
april had a good check in/shot yesterday and they said she more matched our lifestyle laid back and easy going and a good choice. janet fell asleep then woke up and turned her tv off and didn't wake up till nature called after 3 this morning going on 4 and and asleep again till almost 5:15 when tv went on to see what was going on. it's haley's turn for a check in later on this morning as well as a shot too and then she will be good to go till this time next year. april goes back later on this month for her next booster shot and recheck and should be good to go till later this year or whatever. not many er-rands yesterday just wally world as janet had to get a few things and natty had to get milk and turned out more pokemon stuff what would a trip out be without him getting something to sell for his business online???? well that's it the broken record continues and lawns don't get mowed due to it being to wet and with continued threats of rain no way of things really drying out all the reset of this week. common what games do you want to do outside before the showers move on in or board games in the garage your choice or more breakfast??? angels,ab haley,april

HEY BIG RED & FUR SIBS!
WELL, TO CONTINUE ON WITH MY BACK STORY...I HAD 8 WONDERFUL YEARS AS AN INSIDE KITTY. ONE DAY I GUESS MY FIV JUST CAUGHT UP WITH ME CUZ MY
FACE LOOKED THIN, I LOOKED LIKE I HAS LOST WEIGHT AND IN THE MORNING MOM HAD A FEELING. I CURLED UP ON MOMS LAP AND IN THE MORNING WHEN
I WAS SURE SHE WOKE UP, I LICKED HER NOSE, TOLD HER I LOVED HER, THEN PEACEFULLY WENT TO SLEEP. I WOKE UP IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE! THE
RAINBOW BRIDGE! MOM SAYS THAT EVERY NEW BEGINNING COMES FROM SOME OTHER BEGINNINGS END. WE DON'T LIKE TO BE SAD WHEN ONE OF US PASSES,
AS WE HAD THE BEST LIFE EVER AND OUR LIVES SHOULD BE CELEBRATED FOR THE MANY YEARS, NOT MOURNED FOR ONE FINAL DAY. I WILL TELL YOU A LITTLE
ABOUT MY PINTO ISLAND AND HOW IT CAME ABOUT. Y'SEE, WHEN WE JOINED CC IN 2009, I FELL MADLY IN LOVE WITH POUNCER. THAT WAS MAX'S SISTER AND
GRACIE WAS SMITTEN WITH MAX. SHE CHASED HIM LIKE MAD FOR A MONTH BEFORE HE GAVE IN, BUT POUNCER FELT THE SAME ABOUT ME AS I FELT ABOUT HER.
WE GOT MARRIED IN DEC.2010. SHE BECAME AN ANGEL KITTY NOT LONG AFTER I DID, SO WE ARE TOGETHER IN ETERNITY. JUST LIKE THE BLUE OYSTER CULT SONG
"DON'T FEAR THE REAPER"....ROMEO AND JULIET....TOGETHER FOR ETERNITY! THAT'S US! ANYHOO, FOR VALENTINES DAY, 2011, SHE FOUND THIS HEARTSHAPED
ISLAND IN THE BLUE CARIBBEAN AND GAVE IT TO ME! I NAMED IT "PINTO ISLAND". AND WHY PINTO ISLAND YOU MIGHT ASK?

VERY SIMPLE! IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT MY PHOTO, YOU'LL SEE THAT I WAS HALF ORANGE, HALF WHITE, NOT REALLY A "COW" KITTY, BUT A PINTO KITTY! I WAS,
AM...WILL ALWAYS BE MY POUNCIES "PINTO BOY". AND HERE'S A FUN LITTLE FACT. WE WENT TO THE GREAT GOOGLEMEISTER AND FOUND OUT THERE REALLY IS
A REAL LIVE PINTO ISLAND! IT'S IN MOBILE ALABAMA AND IT'S A SHIPYARD AND PART OF THE ALABAMA PORT AUTHORITY. IT'S NOT NEARLY AS NICE AS OUR PINTO
ISLAND, WHICH IS LUSH, GREEN AND TROPICAL. WE HOLD OUR MONTHLY FULL MOON PAWTIES DOWN THERE. WHEN GRACIE WAS QUEEN IN JULY 2012, SHE CHOSE
TO BE QUEEN ON PINTO ISLAND RATHER THAN IN THE CASTLE. I WILL DO THE SAME, AND HAVE A SAND CASTLE. WE HAVE ALL OUR PAWTIES HERE ON THE PINTO,
AND FRIDAY NIGHTS AFTER MHL HOCKEY, WE HAVE "POKER ON THE PINTO". I WILL BE SHIPPING IN A BIG BOATLOAD OF PINTO PONIES FOR OUR RIDING PLEASURE! SOME WILL BE SHETLAND PINTO PONIES, FOR THE KITTENS, FROM SHETLAND ISLAND, SCOTLAND. AND WE WILL BE LEARNING MORE FUN FACTS ABOUT ALL THINGS
PINTO....SUCH AS PINTO PONIES, PINTO BEANS (WHICH ARE A FAVORITE OF OURS), PINTO KITTIES, PINTO MUSIC & DANCES AND THAT FAMOUS INDIAN ACTRESS
FROM "SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRES", THE BEAUTIFUL FREIDA PINTO! THESE FUN FACTS WILL BE COMING IN THE DAYS TO COME.

SO TODAY WE ARE HAVING A FUN FIESTA HERE ON PINTO ISLAND. OUR MOONPIE OF THE DAY IS PINTO BEAN MOONPIES WITH PINTO MILKSHAKES. AND THE MOON
TOON IS "MOON OVER MIAMI". THE CELEBRATIONS ARE......COTD JAZPYR KNIGHT #10428H

BIRTHDAY......HOPE #260912

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY! LUVYA A.ELMIE ♥

HEY BIG RED!
HEY THERE MY GOOD BUDDY! GOSH THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TODAY. THAT'S FINE IF YOUR LATE. I WAS GETTING THE EARLY BIRD JUMP ON PASSING OUT MY FIRST DAY BLOGS TO MY FRIENDS TODAY. NOTHING AT ALL LIKE HOW GRACIE DID IT. SHE'D JUST WAIT AND WHOMEVER BLOGGED HER SHE'D BLOG BACK WITH HER DAILY. BUT NOW WE KNOW HOW TO HAVE OPEN TABS, AND CP AND ARE MUCH SMARTER. SO WHAT I DID WAS GO OVER TO THE CATVENTION CENTRE AND WHOMEVER WAS THERE YESTERDAY I WENT AND DROPPED OFF MY VERY FIRST BLOG!

NO HURRY WHEN YOU COME BY, BUT I MIGHT BEAT YOU TO THE PUNCH AGAIN TOMORROW. WE'LL SEE. I ALWAYS HAVE TIME FOR YOU, BIG RED! WE'VE BEEN FRIENDS FOR SUCH A LONG TIME. YOU CAN HAVE A BEACH HUT RIGHT HERE ON MY PINTO ISLAND AND BRING DUCHESS AND THE GIRLS ALONG TOO! IM SORRY YOUR MOM DIDNT GET SOME GOOD SLEEP. MY MOM NAPS DURING THE DAY, AND BOY DOES SHE NAP! AND THEN SHE CONKS OUT ABOUT 1AM AND GETS UP AT 7-ISH IN THE MORNING.

TOMORROW IS WALMART DAY AND PAY THE ELECTRIC BILL. WELL BUDDY, I BROUGHT YOU ALL SOME RAINBOW CREME MOONPIES AND RAINBOW SHERBERT SHAKES! IT'S ALWAYS SO GREAT TO SEE YOU!! SWEET DREAMS BIG RED! LUVYA A.ELMIE ♥

HEY A.BIG RED & FAMILY!
HEY EVERYBODY! TAKING A LINE FROM ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS....THE ROLLING STONES "SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL".....PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE
MYSELF.....I'M A MAN OF WEALTH AND TASTE. PLEASED TO MEET YOU! HOPE YOU GUESS MY NAME!!! FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVEN'T GUESSED MY NAME,
IT'S ANGEL ELMIE!! OR ELMER IF YOU WANNA GO FORMAL. NOW I'D FIRST LIKE TO TELL YOU MY STORY FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT MET ME BEFORE.
I ARRIVED HERE AT MY HOME IN 2007, A RATTY & RAGGED ORANGE & WHITE PINTO KITTY. LOST AND WITHOUT A HOME TO CALL MY OWN. I WAS SKINNY AND
HAD A DULL COAT. BUT I WAS QUITE THE LOVEABLE FELLA AND WHEN MOM SAT ON THE FRONT PORCH, I JUST JUMPED RIGHT INTO HER LAP, AND PURRED AND
PURRED. HOW COULD SHE RESIST ME WHAT THAT ACTION? SHORT ANSWER: SHE COULDN'T! SHE TOOK ME RIGHT TO THE VET AND HAD MY BIG BOY SURGERY
AND SHOTS. WHILE THE VET SAID I WAS FIV PAWSITIVE THAT WASN'T A BIG CAUSE FOR CONCERN. A KITTY CAN LIVE A LONG AND PROPSERATIVE LIFE WITH
FIV. BESIDES WE ALREADY HAD A FEW THAT WERE PAWSITIVE WITH NO PROBLEM. SO MOM JUST GAVE ME THE BEST LIFE EVER!

ONCE SHE GOT ME FIXED UP AND FATTENED UP AT ABOUT 15 LB. AND BROUGHT ME INDOORS, I FOUND MY SELF IN THE LAP OF LUXERY WITH A BUNCH OF
OTHER KITTIES. SEE, MOM IS A SUCKER FOR THE LOST AND DOWNTRODDEN KITTIES AND WOULD JUST HAVE TO ADOPT THEM. AT THE TIME THERE WAS OUR
LONG TIME QUEEN OF THE PACK....AQ GRACIE AND HER SIS, A.PAWPAW. ALSO SUGAR WAS INDOORS SINCE HE LOST A LEG THE PREVIOUS YEAR AND HIS
ROOMIE, MRS.LILLY. WHEN I WAS AN OUTDOOR "FULLY LOADED" TOM CAT, I WAS DADDY TO NAPPERS (GINGERSNAPS) WHO WAS BORN IN JUNE 2008. SADLY
SHE CROSSED THE BRIDGE IN JULY OF 2015. AND ALSO DADDY TO HER SISTER LACI WHO WAS BORN JUST 3 MONTHS AFTER NAPPERS. I LOVED BEING DADDY
TO MY GIRLS WHO WERE ALSO INSIDE KITTIES. YOU SEE, THEIR MOM....MAMA SHORT, WHO'M I HAD A TRYST WITH, GOT FIXED AFTER HER LAST LITTER AND
AND SHE, TOO, BECAME AN INDOOR KITTY. WE NOW HAVE 17 INDOOR KITTIES. THAT IS MY STORY AND IM STICKING TO IT! I WILL ADD MORE OF MY STORY
EACH DAY TIL I CATCH UP!

I WILL BE BLOGGING ABOUT FUN KITTY INTEREST STORIES ALL MONTH. THERE ARE TONS OF THEM AND I WILL PUT MY OWN "ELMIE" SPIN ON THEM. ALSO WILL HAVE THE DAILY MOONPIE AND MOON TOON OF THE DAY, ALONG WITH THE DAILY CELEBRATIONS AND COTD. I'LL BE POSTING ON CMR LATE AT NIGHT FOR YOU EARLY BIRDS IN THE EAST AND AGAIN IN THE MORNING FOR THE LATER RISERS IN THE EAST. I AM JUST SO TICKLED TO BE YOUR NEXT COTM CATDIDATE AND HOPE TO KEEP YOU ALL ENTERTAINED. IF ANYBODY HAS ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO DO OR ADD.....PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TELL ME! I'M OPEN TO ALL SUGGESTIONS!!

TODAY WE ARE HAVING RAINBOW CREME MOONPIES WITH RAINBOW SHERBERT SHAKES! THE MOON TOON OF THE DAY IS "MOONDANCE".
OUR CELEBRATIONS ARE: COTD..ANGEL SMOKEY..#163461

janet's ankle is giving her the what for
this morning as she's sitting here and it's stiff, so she's mas-saged it quite a few times, stretched it a little and moved it some by walking and taking pepper out when it was 30. we might hit the upper 20s by the time janet leaves in an hour and a half from now for work. oh well, she will be doing sink work like she did yesterday getting to some of the stuff on the cart as well as some of which just came in yesterday on the load from the warehouse in southeastern mass.. we had clouds to sunshine and some pop up storms one with sleet to rain which came down pretty good this end of town before moving towards the pelham hills as there was snow in some of the storms we heard on fb. janet felt great her foot wasn't bothering her like it is this morning as it could've used a good icing down before she went to work which meant sitting in her recliner with it and doing stuff online. after work she's got chicken stew or pot pie to make for supper tonight or just use the rotissiere chicken she got last night and have boiled baby potatoes and a veggie. also sticks to be picked up or fertilizer to be put down either today or tomorrow before the showers move in on monday and rain on tuesday! first weekend without a storm and it's good to know too that next weekend will be into the 60s as that starts on friday!! :) janet's al so got plans for a little each day to do it seeing she can't get it done all at once, clean out that fence, take it up/roll it up, move the fence posts, put up the new fence, rake some leaves out of the old herb garden, and weed the garden as well as plant some herbs lavender she got for mommy for mother's day as she wants a few other herbs and so far janet's gotten 2 rosemary, lavendar and 2 things of leeks which haley ate half of already. lunatic she is!!! :( as we said weather improv-ing next week after 50 today/upper 40s tomorrow, 50s all week through thursday, 60s after that through next weekend and dry from wed-sunday!!! angels,ab,haley

guess what it's doing outside again???
and as of tomorrow morning yet/still!!! heavy wet slop a coating to 2" so locals are saying here in the valley but that remains to be seen since we have more of the same due in tomorrow during the daytime hours and not at night. this slop is due to move out sometime between 8-10 this morning so janet like anybody else who has to work, go to church early or shopping early to beat the crowds will be out in it too! janet's not very happy either having to clean the slop off her car and get all icky wet in the process! believe it or not more coming tomorrow and everybody will likely be out in it sometime or other! janet's kind of hoping it doesn't come till she's finished and home from work. nat has already said if it's coming down hard that errands can wait till tuesday or if necessary combined with them on thursday. trouble with that is it's grocery shopping day seeing the sale at janet's store is what nat wants some of the stuff anyways unless friday's is better? been nice not to have to run out and do things the past two days and today shes hoping the samething, other than going to/from work.
yesterday she got in from work and was going to do her wash, but mommy had another load in the washer and one in the dryer with another waiting to be loaded into the dryer. anyways no walk as it was windier than heck and well janet just had to much inside stuff to do, although she did get out and do more new tree pulling out of the grass. did she tell you she put lime on half of the lawn and the other half south/back are going to wait till they get another bag or two of it? nat for some reason was there waiting to do it and suddenly just walk-ed into the house and didn't come back outside claiming he didn't have the right shoes for it! a likely story which is what hes giving her for helping her to take the poles out of the ground and take the old fence up and put new fencing in! with her outer right ankle swollen from she doesn't know how/what/when it happened/caused it as it's not affecting the rest of the ankle/foot/leg just the outer side swollen from something or other and hurts or twinges and throbs at times. with that and a sinus infection you an imagine she's not feel-ing her best, but keeps right on plugging along, can't afford not to work due to only 24 hours now.
she only has tues/wed sat/sun to get anything outside done here this week as those are the days no storms! warming to the 40s and 50s with rain thurs/fri and again mon/tues of next week, so things are looking pretty damp around here. beats what's falling out there now or tomorrow during the daytime hours!!! janet did come home from work yesterday and finally did get 2 loads of wash going, did scalloped potatoes, later did the lima beans and warmed up the last of the ham she saved out from easter as the rest was frozen in 2 bags to be used at another time. they'll have scalloped potatoes/limas either to night or tomorrow night depends if it's pizza/popcorn for sup-per tonight and

more added on!
looking at twc on here they're calling for snow sunday 1", tuesday a sinker with 3-5", and snow/rain mixed and lower 50s otherwise mid to upper 30s for highs till thursday when the 40s are back. mommy had a good check in at the doctors and doesn't go back till she was next scheduled around the 20th of april at 10:15 as janet goes for 10 and natty 10:30! nice day lower 60s out there and janet's still not gotten outside is going through the angels side of cc and gone back to facebook and posted on there too. nat had cooled down and went with janet around 9:30 and they got 6 bags filled to the brims for $126 as around here no way would you be able to do that! once home and things sorted out she made a turkey broccoli bake as its still cooking now after she precooked it on the stove to get a crust on top of the turkey breast, that's for supper tomorrow night and is having rotisierre chicken tonight with baked potato and either broccoli or string beans. she froze 2 bags of the easter ham for another time and left some out to make scalloped potatoes with for thursday or friday night. she is going to head out to rip out the black plastic and put down new after she tosses the pine needles outside of the fence. sunny lower 60s here as it was 28 to start. showers tomorrow afternoon or night to boomers/showers on friday but lower 70s! then the bottom will fall through just like it always does when we get 1-2 nice warm spring days, old man winter isn't through with us yet by the looks usual spiel of first full week winter like the past 2 years! stinks that's what!!! :( angels,ab,haley

not everybody will be getting blogs
as there just won't be time. janet was up after 5 first changing her bed, then out the door with pepper after she filled the wash ing machine and walking with pepper around the big block. going to be a pretty day and looks like janet is going by herself up to athol now seeing nat's in a #%$#% mood and won't move out of bed!!! janet told him to be ready by 9-10 time frame that would give him plenty of time to get up and do what he has to but know ing him he won't get out of bed till after 8:30 or more! lazy #$@# so and so!!!! grrrr, just makes janet's blood boil, but that's all she's saying otherwise she could and would go on and on and on about him! typical lazy men in this family it's not funny, janet's ex, master near the last 5 years of his life as well as cindy's ex and some of nat's cousins like jeff and andy!
after getting in from the walk, the clothes were ready and janet hung them outside on the lines and are frozen right now, as it's only into the upper 20s and going to be near 60 here today! a lovely day to be outside and getting stuff done which janet again asked nat to help her with stuff and knows he won't, so that's nothing new either. that's why the yard takes her so long to get things done but once she does it by herself it's gonna look all that much better too! another nice day to showers tomorrow near 70, then on sunday listen to this....1" snow and high of 38, then tuesday 3-5" of snow and 42!!!! won't last long but seems old man winter has a few more tricks up his sleeve and won't give up seeing we were just about snowless all winter long! oh well gotta stop here for now and will let ya know things via fb later if janet man-ages to get back online that is. angel poppy aka furryrear is the featured angel of this month janet's only and only who lived till she was 28!!! anagels,ab,haley

week to get pictures change either poppy or puffy goes up this month as the angel of the month on this page and the other one one of her newest pictures of ab/haley or daffies of which her's right now are the only ones out and in full bloom. the others are just getting going and crocuses are out while her's have al-ready gone by! she was off just in the nick of time to get up to sunrise service with 5-10 minutes to spare so good timing on her part for not taking her time in walking up to the church's small memorial park in back where it's held each year. stayed cloudy like sat morning till early afternoon although the sun broke through earlier on sat. and we hit the lower 60s here and not yesterday till 1 or after so only hit the lower 50s and felt more like the lower 40s due to a southeasterly wind off the ocean. janet's breakfast was some-thing else from scratch all but the cinnamon rolls and there's enough for leftovers this morning too! easter baskets were well liked as well as the lunch she got as she did most of the prep work in advance and burned the peas as they just were doing it, but no matter still tasted good to her. clean up was less due to paper plates and plastic cups thus saving a lot of headaches! nat took off for 2 hours with his cousin after lunch for northampton and hadley shopping for a few things and came home with bags of pokemon stuff seeing his on line store has been doing booming business lately! janet walk-ed up the street with mommy and pepper then finished the on-line stuff and had like the others a light supper followed by a walk around the big block. oh yes a little block walk before lunch delivering some easter goodies to some friends who were at church for the morning 3 services they went to! angels,ab, haley

we did have warm temps only needing
lighter jackets/shirts for the morning and very early afternoon, but by mid afternoon the darker booming clouds moved on in hear-alding the change in the air masses and the wind came up as well. wasn't to bad, but you could fee a decided nip in the air for sure and janet felt it this morning when she had pepper out around 2;45 as the wind is roaring out there again and likely will throughout this weekend as we have another cold front mov-ing on through to get even colder for sunday only upper 30s then then lower 40s for mon/tues. got a nor'easter too with heavy wet slop likely for sun night into monday to make the commute into work and back to college very messy indeed! janet's NOT looking forwards to welcoming it with spring this year for sure. old man winter should know enough not to wait till early spring to "DUMP" everything on us, but the past two years we did get cold the first week of spring and then an inch of sleet both last and the year before and this year it's heavy white stuff and then a sinker to rain on wednesday as we warm up from the lower 40s to the lower 50s when janet has to take nat for his 6 month cleaning/check at his dentist. she says they will go if it's only 1-2" but if it's sleet or ice forget it! he'll have to call to change it.
janet picked up a $200 winter jacket for $28 at jcp yesterday and mommy is paying her $30 she paid for the other winter jack et she got late last month which didn't fit her at all and mommy liked it as it had a hood and the color matched her pants! she's also paying janet $20 for gas for all the run-ning around for doctor's appts. late last and all of this month which have been so it seems endless. we did have corned beef potatoes and a few veggies, not cabbage nobody likes it here for supper last night and the rest for supper tonight which will finish it off. she picked up another roasting chicken for .99 a pound as well as pork chops and some baby carrots as the ones mommy used were kind of drying out, but still good to use. the rest of the shopping gets done today. angels,ab,haley

with the rest of the shopping
done in record time at least for janet/nat as it takes janet a month of sundays between couponed/sale items or things which she is out of or wants to get! once home an hour later she and nat were bundled up against the cold northeasterly wind from the gulf of maine and walked the big block, janet then spent the rest of the afternoon getting the online stuff done which took till 3 as she wanted to start eletters, but her shoulder was tel ling her otherwise!
today warming to the lower to mid 40s and last janet knew it was still 22 might have gone down since then, but she doesn't think past 20 at least. she's got plans to pick up branches and sticks breaking them into big boxes and using them later when grilling season starts, will sure help out at the time we think! then some raking along the edge of the street where the town plows have hit the edge of the lawn and put soil onto the lawn so has to be cleaned up one thing which can be done! she wanted to do the flower gardens, but realizes a bit early for that yet, seeing threats of white/frozen stuff still abound between now and the first week in april. she's got tacos for tonight and then will buy grinders while mommy is in her skin dr's appt. uptown and pizza for nat quicker than having nat put something into the oven or them heating some-thing up once they got home. also an added stop on the way home on thursday to ocean state job lot to get some wool socks if they still have them out that is for nat's birthday gift from mommy for his birthday in 2 weeks time first day of day-light savings time. angels,ab,haley

It’s almost Beer Can Regatta time!

As one by one the finishing touches are put on our fine array of watercraft (snicker) and they are loaded onto transports, I wanna introduce you to my Mystery Destination, the place where we will be sailin’ our fine vessels. This is an absolutely for truly real place. It’s on the Potomac in Charles County, Maryland and it is called .. Mallows Bay!

And even better, as if bein’ named after ME ain’t great enough, let me introduce the wonder that is …. Are ya ready for this one …. The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay!

Here’s how it came to be: During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hittin; the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1. Well, YOU are, I’m a Canadian).

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a picture of the bay with its Ghost Fleet in my gallery.

There’s a Mallows Bay Park there now, with boat ramps and everything, and that’s where the Beer Can Regatta will start tomorrow. Tonight, Prince O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Hello Dahlings!

Just getting’ myself in the mood because here in Mallowwood on Pinto Island not only is it a pawty to celebrate the Full Snow Moon, tonight we have an extra special Full Snow Moon, it’s also … hey wait a minute. I was all set to announce that it’s Academy Award night but it turns out that <ahem> SOMEone who shall be nameless was lookin’ at out of date info. Oscar night is NEXT week!

Well, we’re here THIS week so I think we can still get dressed up like our favourite movie stars and honour the Oscars on this Full Moon pawty night. Q. Lily has been decoratin’ like crazy, K. Spongie is shinnyin’ up the palm trees to string fairy lights shaped like snowflakes and a replica Academy Award sits in the middle of each table.

As a very special treat, we have A K. Pushkin the Royal Maestro conductin’ the Mallowwood Bowl Orchestra playin’ Great Movie Themes. Didn’t know we had an orchestra, didja? Why, I didn’t even know we had a bowl!

And speakin’ of bowls, OH the food that Chefs Angels Elmie & Pouncer have prepared! It wouldn’t even fit in my blog so the menu posted only on the CMR page!

By the way, Prince Oscar Jon is all pumped about the “Oscars” because he is convinced that the whole thing is named after him. I just hope this ain’t gonna be like that time he commandeered the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile on its national tour! Um, my Prince, that statue you just set down as the centrepiece of the head table IS a replica, ain’t it? Um … AIN’T it?

Be at the ready, Quincy, I think there just may be a slight chance that we might be needin’ that bail fund you’re holdin’ … then again, Pinto Island has no extradition treaties with anyone, I think we might be alright.

Let the celebration begin! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

janet says never mind for the older blogs
they're history now and oldies! lol!! we had a grand weekend as mommy and all got out to walk both days and janet even got in her late afternoon walk which she would've loved to have taken yesterday, but got tied up making pasta/tomato soup/hot dogs which they will maybe have tonight unless she does the med chicken with grape tomatoes as she's got everything she thinks or makes swiss rosti potatoes as that's posted up on the cup-board door for her to make now for 2 weeks. she finally got some cheese too to do it and might do it when she's not going to have a fancy meat dish as they might not go with each other and well nat won't touch it anyways.
he got all his homework just about done for the week did the reading, 2 quizes and a chapter culmative tests for 5 chapters done yesterday and leaves him to clean up a paper and submit it today and start another due on friday. they all got out to walk both days too and believe this mommy in just a sweatshirt in february???? unheard of but she said it was warm enough with 65 as regular/80 in the sun. no matter all the snow melt-ed as yesterday she wore a winter jacket as it only hit 50! janet even got in her first late afternoon walk as supper was going on saturday. trouble is if you make pasta you can't go off like that somebody has to be around to stir it or add water to it. just praying that the ice to rain coming in tomor row night into wed., goes to rain early on so janet can safely get mommy uptown and back again so it won't have to be changed which she says if it's icy she will have to do just that. they are calling for upper 30s fri-sun and then gradually getting colder and colder. snow showers on wednesday next week, NOOO!! didn't want to hear the s word but there ya have it for the first few days in march. janet's hours were restored as well as that of another girl who does the melon bar and she's back to 32-35 a week and janet 30 as usual. store/dept. manager finally got on the same page and with permission of the higher upper got the hours restored back to normal. angels,ab,haley

Thanks for sharin' about FoundAnimals! I was impressed! I got lotsa good info from the kitties, and while everyone who doesn't come from a shelter DOES hafta pay for a microchip, (our vet charges 15 - 20 bucks for it too) I'm glad there are places that don't charge a yearly fee!

From across the country the responses to my question yesterday about affordable microchippin’ have been rollin’ in. Here’s some of what we’re hearin’:

Q. A. Sakura in Illinois says “I was chipped, as are my sisters. Like at your shelter, Mom was told to just keep her address and phone current with ours. No cost at all, we guess it was included in the adopty fee.”
~~~~~
Q. Lily in Indiana reports: “We got microchipped from the shelter and there are no yearly fees; but with Rika our pooch, who wasn't a rescue, she is registered with Home Again and it costs mom about $18 a year to keep her registered with them.”
~~~~~
K. Whiskers in California expands on this: “All of us kitties are registered with HomeAgain.com and it does costs $17.99 (each) for the annual membership. We think it might cost because they have other perks; like help with lost pet alerts and posters, and found pet travel assistance.”
~~~~~
But maybe the annual membership and perks are options? Q. Mimi in Virginia says “Our chip company is Home Again. Our vet says we pay once for implant and registration.”
~~~~~
Hedley in California tells us “The Animals and I got our chips through our vet clinic, and the outside clowder got all theirs through the city shelter. Mom remembers paying initially for the chips and entering the data into a computer database, but she doesn't get charged to maintain it.”
~~~~~
Q.A. Misty in Pennsylvania shares: “My sisters are all micro-chipped. Mom registered them at Avid. It was free. Mom just needs to update the info if she moves or when my sisters cross The Bridge. They sent plastic collar tags with the info on it too. Mom later got the girls silver tags from Avid with the info and she did have to pay for those.”
~~~~~
Q. A. Duchess in Tennessee tells us: “Three of us are chipped with FoundAnimals.org. They are a non-profit registry that was founded in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. There is no registration fee and no annual fee, either. It's a great place and they register several brands of microchips. You can check out their site and see if it might be of value to you or any CC members. We were chipped at our local Tractor Supply and it only cost $15.”
**********
After hearin’ from A. Q. Duchess I just hadda check out FoundAnimals.org, it’s a very cute site and packed with info! Along with the microchip registry, the site also helps you find a chip clinic in your area, and has sections devoted to S/N, Adoption & Foster too. They’ve been around for 10 years, check it out!

So it looks like there are some different options out there. Hope some of this is helpful! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Wow, I don’t know about you, but I am STILL seein’ those Chinese New Years fireworks every time I close my eyes!

Can ya believe we’re almost halfway through what my brother Mikey insists on callin’ “The Reign of Terror”. No respect, I tell ya! He claims it serves me right for how durin’ HIS stint in the Castle I usedta refer to him as “The Royal Pain”

Well, it’s Caturday the 13th, and since Mom has an appointment today to donate blood (which she calls “visitin’ the vampires”), I have decided to embrace the “Reign of Terror” label and host a scary movie night. Anyone who wants to come early can spend some time with K. Sams, who is leadin’ an expedition to see if any of those Irish ghosts hitched a ride when we had Mallow Castle shipped over. I sure hope the Black Cat of Killakee ain’t somewhere down the basement, I hear he is one mean dude!

Okay now, let’s grab our blankies and trays of Ghost ‘Mallows, and see what we have to put in the old DVD player for ya ….. “When a Stranger Comes” … “Revenge of the Birds” … “Invasion of the Kibble Snatchers” ….. “It Came From the Vet’s Office” … or tell me what your own favourite thriller is. This is a great excuse to get a start on that Valentine’s Day cuddling!

*********
Speakin’ of Valentine’s Day, didja know that Feb 14th is also International Quirkyalone Day? International Quirkyalone Day is a feel-good alternative to the all the hype of Valentine’s Day, a celebration of ALL kindsa love: romantic, platonic, familial, friendship and of course, lovin’ and valuin’ the uniqueness that is each of us. Now if you don’t know that’s right up my alley, you ain’t been payin’ attention so far!

sorry we took so long in getting back to you,
but janet shoveled from 2;30-3:30 and then only had time to get to around 15 on the other side and that was it for the day! she did try getting back on in the afternoon, but only had time to keep the two emails/fb pages cleaned up and wow it's a big mess as usual this morning. she got up around 5:30 and was online till it was light enough to get outside around 6:40 this morning as it's light enough around that time to walk and just did the big block as it's 25 around what the high for the next few days is going to be here before the brutal cold invades here on friday night and lows sat/sun -15 to -5 in the mornings and daytime highs around 10-15 above 0! only for those two days then mid to upper 20s monday and lows into the lower 20s so much better. the warm up next week will come at a price a 3 day sinker stinker which means tues/wed/ thurs between 2-4" heavy wet slop like last friday and mixed with everything but the kitchen sink! mommy has an appt. in northampton late wed am for a hearing aide adjustment and fix-ing as it's not been working the way it should. then the fol-lowing wed uptown for removal of that cancerous mole which will take around 45 mins. and will allow janet to walk uptown and look around. she says if the trip to hamp is a go, then they will get grinders there as janet can preorder them online and that's the closest they are to us either there or green-field which they are going to try to get to sometime maybe if lucky next month. the week after the cancerous removal down to springfield to her eye surgeon so are praying that there's no snow or sinker weather for that one otherwise reschedule for another wed that month as the 24th is out due to nat's dentist appointment. nat's done all the shoveling the past two storms as this one except yesterday when janet was out from 2;30-3:30 shoveling as it had stopped and started before she went to work so had to go out and clean things off as nat said he had to do more shoveling. janet also asked him to clean off the roof before the next storm which might give us something like it's snowing out there at a pretty good clip this morning too so likely we'll get more than the dusting to 2" they were say-ing last night and the last storm gave us 7" totaled from the last one which settled/melted down to closer to 4-5" on the ground which was nice. more melting today as well as more light snow which stinks as it'll be sticky at that time and well janet's got to go up on the ladder today and clean the gutters out and bash ice as well more than likely. nat did all the rest the last 2 storms while janet was at work or here inside the house. she's going to get out some frozen soup she made last fall leek and potato more than likely seeing it's in there somewhere and they're working to get the stuff eaten up to make room when janet starts freezing stuff this coming summer and fall.
she and nat were out running errands as she stayed home sick thinking the storm was gonna hit when she was at wo

Oh, I ain't complainin' too much, we do get Animal Planet Canada. They have a little different lineup than the Animal Planet in the States, but they do show My Cat From Hell, Too Cute, Treetop Cat Rescue, all that good stuff. Big Bro Will tapes some of it, he is a big softy for kitties!

Happy Mardi Gras! As you can see by my profile picture, my handsome Mardi Gras King & I are ready to celebrate. We’re gonna dress up in our feathers & beads and take in the parade from the best vantage point there is, and then we’ll have an sumptuous banquet prepared by today’s Guest Chef, Prince Oscar Jon himself! As some of you already know, Prince O.J. is an accomplished chef who has served many of our CC Royals over the years. I’ll let him set the stage for today’s banquet:

~~~~~

Oscar Jon can't help remembering the journey to this pawty...the supreme pawty; the one he's cooking for his Queen Angel Mallow. It all began with a slide down the castle stairway. Little did O.J. know when the then, Miss Mallow, landed in a flop on his tummy that love would bloom between he, the tubby Maine Coon from Missouri, and she, the beautiful and adventurous Siberian from British Columbia. Now, he gets to help with the Mardi Gras meal for all the cats and kitties that can crowd into the Castle Hall (& believe O.J., it's a huge place for a Cajun spread). Shipped in by special barge and a tug boat, only the freshest of ingredients will do. Steve, Tucker, Spanky Jack, Casper & Hedley are wearing their "chef" aprons and soon the meal will commence.

Shrimp Creole
Buffalo Shrimp
Alligator Meatballs
Collard Greens
Fried Okra
Oven Baked Jambalaya
Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potatoes
Dirty Rice
Red Beans & Rice

For dessert; A Mardi Gras Colorful King Cake and Sweet Powdered Beignets

Drinks on the House: Southern Sweet Tea, Fresh Lemonade, Sparkling Water or Hot Steaming Coffee

Ah, but what about those cats hanging around back in the "still" area where the nights are cool and the band plays on...use your imagination my friends. They also will enjoy a tasty banquet more to their rowdy palate. A thick rich roux of swamp rat and crawfish, finger bites of liver rolled in (oops better keep that a secret) a rich shrimp pasta dish and Dunkin Donuts for all. Drinks come from a spigot or barrel -- with the band playing "When the Saints Go Marching In."

~~~~~

Oh boy, I hear that Dixieland Jazz band startin’ up already! I am grabbin’ my beads and headin’ over to liberate my Maine Man from the kitchen for a dance or two .. or three …

Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Are ya ready for some football??!

After that exciting shoppin’ cart race, I am ready to relax & chill out with my pals in front of the big screen. The thrills, the action, the excitement of cheerin’ my team on. So whaddaya think, can Boomers Bobcats beat the Northshore Bengals?

Oh yeah … there are some human teams playin’ today too, aren’t there?

You’re all invited to Mallow Castle for Superbowl 50! We’re puttin’ the finishing touches on a big Snack Stadium, prominently featurin’ blue corn chips and sweet potato dip for those Broncos fans out there, Carolina Pulled Pork Frito Bites for the Panthers fans, and lotsa football shaped ‘mallows from the Evie & Mallow Bakery. There’s also Orange Crush Cream Pie and our trusty bartender will be makin’ delicious blue Panther-itas.

And of course what would Super Bowl Sunday be without pizza? Today’s Guest Chef is K. Winston of the famous Winston’s Pizzeria, and the delivery truck should be showin’ up any minute with lotsa that special Winstons magic for us! I of course have ordered my favourite double onion, double garlic feta special, and there’s an assortment of Philly Cheesesteak, Buffalo Wing and Seafood pizzas too. Not to mention lotsa Winston bread with assorted dips.

And of course we have beer! Please save your empties for a top-secret project that’s comin’ up soon. We’re gonna need lots, so after the game a bunch of us Angels are gonna head over to the stadium and collect all the cans we can get our paws on. That should be a good start, mol.

Now let’s get started! It’s almost time for the pre-pre-PRE-game show! ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

Before I forget (like I did yesterday!) I have been getting’ a whole lotta compliments on my Queenly profile picture. K. Whiskers’ talented Mom made that awesome picture for me, ain’t it awesome? I think she really managed to capture the essence of Angel Mallow, Beneficent Ruler of the Universe! Um .. I mean, CC Queen of February. Getting’ ahead of myself there, mol.

I have some cool info for ya today ~~ Mom was flippin’ through the latest Catster magazine the other day when she saw somethin’ that goes paw in paw with my Lost & Found campaign. So today I thought I’d share with ya about somethin’ called the Kitty Convict Program.

Put the Royal Bail Fund away, Quincy, we don’t need it. Not for this one anyway. See, the Kitty Convict Program recognizes a problem, bein’ that of the over 7 million pets who go missin’ every year. 26% of dogs get back home, and not even 5% of cats.

Some of the reasons for this: Number One, more dogs wear collars with ID of some kind

Number Two: We felines are better at hidin’ than dogs are and for most of us, hidin’ is our first line of defense – by the way, statistics say that 2/3 of missin’ kitties who are found are found within 4 – 5 houses of where they live. Kitties in my campaign stories are the rare exceptions!

And now, the third reason kitties have a lower return rate: Think about it, when humans see a canine runnin’ around outside, first thing they do is look for a human nearby and if they don’t see one they say “Hey! That doggie must be lost!” But when people see a feline outside, they just say “oh look, a kitty” and don’t think much more of it. They just figure a kitty outside is .. well, a kitty outside! So the ones who do have someone lookin’ for them can miss an important chance to get help getting’ back home!

The Kitty Convict Project humans thought about all this and came up with a bright idea. Literally. They are encouragin’ all indoor kitties to wear orange collars with their ID tag. Why orange? Well for one thing, it’s bright and easy to notice. AND most importantly, because convicts wear orange their mission is to make the colour of “convict orange” an easily recognizable symbol of indoor cats. It lets people know that if they see a kitty outside who is wearin’ an orange collar, that kitty might actually be an “escapee” who needs help getting’ home.

Whether you like it or don’t, we gotta give these humans credit for creative thinkin’! To find out more, you can visit explodingkittens.com/kittyconvict. Just thought I’d pass it on ~~ ♕ Queen MJ

well the rain
moved on in earlier than predicted, so janet got a bit damp as it was raining lightly and she only had her windbreaker on and that was it besides a baseball cap which kept her dry to a point and then she was a bit on the damp side. originally the rain wasn't supposed to get here till 9, but moved in a few hours be fore that and surprised many like her who were out walking to en joy the warmth while it lasts which after tomorrow with 50 we likely won't see for a little while since all of next week we'll be into the 30s and a week from now either a sinker or white stuff on the ground. another near miss of a big ocean storm which will clip the cape on friday and we'll have night/morning clouds, but that's it. a nice weekend but lower 40s so all in all not to bad either still warm for this time of the year.
she and nat did go over to the dr's yesterday to get some brio samples for mommy and will likely have to go again next month or later on this one depends when she runs out again, the to mommy's bank to transfer money to another one just to get 4 pesky bills paid while the others get paid via the regular local bank. nothing on tap today, she wants to cook, but looks like angels sandy/puffy and haley have all made it through to the next phase in the bachelor type of contest so she's got to prepare a short write up for 3 dates whenever they come up. janet thinks one for the town/colleges/emily dickenson house will be the first and the next either downtown northampton or historic deerfield village north of here and the other the quabbin resevoir to the east famous for hiking/walks and bird or animal watching from lookouts along the roads going through there. that should be interesting for sure as he'll be staying at a local bed and breakfast called the harvey house outside of town and within walking distance of the emily dickenson house as well as downtown and amherst college as umass is a little north of town and hampshire you have to take a car or bus to get to it as it's here in south amherst. maybe we'll ditch the quabbin for that as well as atkins and hiking on the range as there's the eric carlise museum of picturebook art which that and the national yiddish center she's never been to. just to the parking lots there to learn how to park, drive and what not. only thing on tap to-morrow as janet's hours at the store were restored yesterday-saturday and the tussle of fighting for them back next week starts on monday once again. after getting in from work back out bank, target, wally world and aldi's have to get home like pronto as mommy's appt. is for 3pm uptown. for a rash on her back as well as some moles or molehills as she calls them. angels,ab,haley

we're late
but that's due to cc being down. janet found out at work she was unable to make up anymore of the missed hours, but is happy she made up 21/2 hours out of the 5 she's missing this week. she punched out as she finished cleaning up and told the melon bar girl that she'd have to finish chopping up the melons as she had half a container filled with cantelopes. once home and chanaged she walked pepper around the big block, then was off on errands first the bank, down to her store where she picked up some marked down stuff and some oj which was on sale, then back up to aldi's for some stuff, from there to wally world for little more and finally atkins for burgers, sausages and some kilbasa from their deli barbecued style. she's been online all afternoon and is shy of finishing, but is going down the list and knows that there's still a few more to get to on here, so we're cutting things a little short. angels,ab,haley

~ A. Mallow's Lost & Found - Jan 27th ~
If you think this story sounds familiar, it’s because Queens Maggie & Angel Ginger told it in their campaign a few months back. But it is so good I just hafta tell it too!

In 1949 the Smith family were getting’ ready to move from St. Petersburg, Florida all the way out to California! They were worried how their kitty Tom would handle such a long trip and because they’d once read that cats often get more attached to a place than to people, they were delighted when they saw that Tom seemed to like the man who bought their house, Robert Hanson.

The Smiths thought that it would be best for Tom to not have his normal routines interrupted and made the decision to leave him with Mr. Hanson. They were sad to leave Tom behind, but relieved that he would have a good home. Over and over they told themselves that done the right thing.

Two weeks later after they moved into their new home in San Gabriel, the Smiths got a letter from Robert Hanson with the news that Tom had run away. They felt awful that because they had done what they thought was best for Tom, now he had run off and would probably come to a sad end.

Then, on an August afternoon on 1951, two years and six weeks after their move to California, Mrs. Smith heard a cat wailing in her yard. The noise was drivin’ them up the wall, and Mr. Smith went outside to chase the intruder out of the yard. Imagine his amazement when the cat ran toward him and leaped into his arms! It took him only a moment to recognize their old friend Tom.

Mrs. Smith was more skeptical. After all, Tom was a sleek, well-fed handsome feline while THIS kitty was scraggly, skinny, worn, frazzled and so weak that it collapsed on the kitchen floor when Mr. Smith brought it into the house. Its fur was bleached by the sun and had come out in handfuls. Its paws were bloody and covered in scabs.

Then Mrs. Smith thought of a sure test. They had raised their Tom on baby food, and he had a real “thing” for Pablum. She went to the store and bought some, then put a saucer of it on the floor. Well, battered and beaten though he was, the cat got to his feet and dived into the baby food right up to his whiskers. The Smiths were now convinced that their old Tom had found his way to their home in San Gabriel, California, all the way from St. Petersburg, Florida-way across the continent and across 2,500 miles of unfamiliar terrain!

Guess Tom had been more attached to his people than they could have ever imagined!

your mom did mention
that you might not make it back here due to running around and getting things done! janet stayed 11/2 hours after yesterday as there was nobody scheduled for the melon bar so she just cut the fruit and the two managers slapped things together and got them out. janet's whatever she caught 2 weeks ago has relapsed and now her nose is like a freaking faucet this morning and she's got a headache brewing as well. not looking good, but is hoping she gets asked to stay beyond the 10 she's scheduled till the rest of this week. whatever it was bothering nat's teeth likely pressure built up from infected sinuses was fine yesterday. janet has felt that many a time and says it's doing that to her upper teeth today as it has on/off during whatever it is she's got sinus on/off again flu bug! he started his online courses and has just one more thin to do this week as he's finished the reading and like janet asked him to get it done ahead of time sees the good in doing it ahead of time and getting it done/out of the way. they ran errands one to get milk at target and the other to see some-body at another game store so he could give a card to the guy ad was due to go back later to get the $$ for it, but the loopy cousin chose his time instead to go to a friend's house and was well nat gave him pure #$%#^ for it as they were plan-ning on doing something together in the afternoon, but nat told him to forget it and another time and was mad, but let it go! they walked around 2 the usual time except when it's hot, cold or storming out with pepper around the big block. janet says she's walking early tomorrow as there's a variety of blocks open to her to do after 6 as it starts to get light at that time now. we're at 32 here going to 46 today and then cooling slightly the next 4 days to the lower 40s and up again sun-wed but with showers mon and wed then a reverse sinker on thursday. angels,ab,haley

it's looking more and more
like nat's going to see his dentist this week just when janet thought that there would be a week free of running around. trouble is if it has to come out it's likely janet will have to pay and even though nat doesn't want her to due to saving for if she has to pay income tax or towards the brakes, well it's got to be done as if the tooth has to come out it's gotta come out and stop the trouble it's causing. he starts online stuff and got the reading done already for them yesterday ahead of time as it only makes sense to do so which will leave the end of the week free. just when everybody south of here is digging out janet has heard mention of another nor'easter coming up the coast either the end of this week or start of next and is already praying/asking that since the temps have warmed up between the upper 30s to mid 40s that we get all rain or a sinker to rain or nothing at all, but knows it's more than likely we will get hit this time out as it's unlike-ly that you go without storms for a long period only to get zapped and ba good too once it's your turn, but can't help to pray for nothing or all rain, right?
her hours were cut at the store again and since there's no-body for the melon bar will likely get asked to stay to cut fruit so that her bosses like last friday can put the stuff to gether as a bunch of it they made last week is out of code as of today and janet will have to bring it back and likely put it up in spots in her cooler as she shares it with the melon bar leaving not much room for her stuff at all! oh well, not much more going on here right now, we'll let ya know about nat's dentist appt. likely this week and what happens when she blogs for us again mid to later on depends when he can get in. angels,ab,haley
