Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
Hi there! Wow! I'm glad your Mom got the computer figured out and straightened out. That can be so scary!

It's nice to hear that Abarna has some relatives that came in to see her. And I know she just loves your Mom's "kitty report".

How nice that Pepper's Mom called your Mom. I'm glad Pepper has found a little house to sleep in and that the yappy little dog is calming down some.

Did you all hit triple-digits today? We had 104* today. Same expected tomorrow. But don't worry. We're staying cool.

I'll pass around the hugs, my dear BFF, and know that you are all surrounded by prayers.

Thank you for the poem "My Cat Friends" and for my vote. I am enclosing a vote for you and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed night and sweet dreams.

Purrs & kitty kisses,
Angel Malachi

Hi Whiskers and Family!
What a horrible thing to happen to your Mom's computer! I so glad that she had a program that would clean up the infected file and make things okay, again. Glad, too that she didn't lose all the CC blogs. Backing up data is a good idea.

We have gotten behind, again. I think Mom spends too much time reading things on FB and on CC, too! Then she runs out of time and can't finish helping us visit our furiends! That's what happened yesterday. Today she and Dad were busy trying to finish up the laundry room, at least for now. Dad put the little fan under the tub and put the pegboard up to allow circulation without allowing any of us to get behind them and cause a problem. There is a very tiny leak from one of the hoses that Dad replaced some time ago, but it's not bad enough to do immediately. So, when he's ready to finish up, he'll fix that, again and then close everything up properly. This weekend, he plans on laying out all the pipes and fittings to start the re-plumbing job. He still has to put the baseboards back down in the bathroom, but otherwise, it's all done!

How wonderful that Abarna has family here to visit with her and raise her spirits. I know she's wanting to go home and that helps make things a little more tolerable at the hospital. So, glad that Sugar Bear and Ebony are doing well. I know that makes her happy! I'm also happy that Pepper is getting along better at her home and is enjoying her cat tree. Being able to get up high helps her avoid the yappy doggy. So, now she has a safe place to go. I'm thrilled that the doggy is finally settling down. Maybe, it will even become a good friend to Pepper.

Did you actually get up to the triple digits? I've been praying that it doesn't get too hot for your family. You kitties can stay nice and cool in the A/C, but your Mom and Dad have to go out in that heat sometimes. Mom would hate that! But if you're gonna cool down, again, maybe it won't be too bad. We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for your prayers for us, too!

We got up to 89 yesterday and today, but no rain. We may get some rain tonight, later. Right now, it's 81 with a heat index of 87 and humidity at 77%. Very sticky!

Thanks for the cute poem, "My Cat Friends". We really loved that one!

Well, dear furiends, I have to go for now, cuz it's getting late and we haven't even done our voting, yet! So, I'm leaving you a vote and wishes for a peaceful and blessed evening, sweet dreams and a cooler day tomorrow! Take care and I'll catch ya, later. Love ya!

Lots of hugs and headbonks,
Mischief

Hi Whiskers
We're so glad to hear that your mom found the problem with the computer and was easily able to remove it. Sometimes those infected files can spell major trouble!
It is wonderful mews to hear that Abarna is doing well and I'm sure the family coming to see her is a big pick-me-up. :)
That's great that Pepper is feeling better about things and has her own private home to escape to, and the little yapper is quieting down.
They put in an offer on the house they saw a few weeks ago. They should hear whether it's accepted sometime tomorrow. Mom hopes the call doesn't take too long to come because she will go crazy till it does, MOL.
That was a sweet poem today.
Love,
Q. Angel Sakura

Hey Whiskers!
We're getting ready for the return of the HOT weather too. Only supposed to be about 95 today, but after today we're looking at 10 straight days of at or above 100 temps. Ugh. The last week has been SO nice! And now look what it went and did. :-)

That's nice of your mom to spend some time with Abarna's kitties. Abarna is a really unusual name. Where is it from, do you know?

Hope you are able to stay out of the heat! We're gonna do our best! Purrs

Great news, Whiskers!
No, we don't have an update from Lady Dolly, though hopefully one will come soon. I meant great news from Pepper, the formerly missing kitty! I'm glad she likes her little hidey-house at the top of the cat tree and that the yappy dog is settling down. I'll bet she is sure happy to be back with her Mom! And her Mom will surely still be thrilled to have her back. Your Mom did really good on that one! And I'll bet your Dad is relieved and the ladies at the rescue, too, that the lost kitty won't be needing a new home.

Great news that Abarna is still doing well, too. Purrs to all of you! -- Mike

Hi K Whiskers
What’s purring with you today? It’s Wine Down Wednesday (that’s what Mommy calls it) so you know what that means - our cleaning lady Mrs. Maryann is here. As usual, I am “supervising” and Hissy Sissy is hiding upstairs in her hammock in the scrapbook room. That girl is very unfuriendly!

Pete had been in his room typing away on his
old typewriter. He was working on an idea for a Mystery dinner party. The dinner would begin, and then an event would occur, that would require solving. Each diner would play a character and they would all discover clues and use their powers of deduction to uncover what had happened. He was working on the scripts and character descriptions. He had decided that Flower would be playing the part of a famous detective, assisted by the other kids. He’d worked on it since he had finished breakfast and though the idea was far from complete, he decided to solicit input from Whiskers and Talley.
He went down stairs to discuss his idea. He thought it might be something that Talley would like to do as one of her Castle events during her reign as Queen. He arrived on the pool deck, just as Paulie and Opal were leaving.
Talley wasted no time telling Pete what Paulie and Opal were planning. Pete was elated. He was completely charmed by the baby opossums and he had tremendous respect for Paulie and Opal. He said, “This is just wonderful, we’ll need to get them very special Christening presents, I’ll call Chloe and see if she can make Christening Gowns for them.”
Talley smiled at the image that came to her of the tiny opossums in traditional christening gowns. Whiskers said, “This is wonderful, I know that Flower was disappointed not to become Pepper’s Godfather, but he realized that being reunited with her family was the best of all possible outcomes for her.”
They discussed the Christening for some time. Pearl and Annabella came out to join them. They wore happy smiles. Pearl said, “The most wonderful thing is happening! Paulie and Opal are asking Flower and the kids to be Godparents to their babies. They’re asking them right now.”
Annabella said, “The kids are going to be so excited, I know that they’ll take their responsibility very seriously.”
Pete nodded, “Our kids take every responsibility very seriously. They really do give me a feeling of optimism for the future of our community.”
Annabella asked Pete if he had talked to his dad this morning.
Pete replied, I spoke to him briefly as he was heading out the door to his PT session. He plans on working in his workshop this afternoon. Mom’s birthday is coming up on the 16th of August and he wants to make her a little lap desk. He saw one when he and mom visited Monticello. Thomas Jefferson had designed it. It had compartments for stationery, pens, and

ink wells. It had been beautifully crafted from figured maple with dovetail corners that were so tight that they appeared to be a single piece of wood. He started it before he had his shoulder fixed and all of the pieces are cut, he just needs to put it together. He’s updated it to hold the power supply for mom’s laptop so that when she wants to sit on the sofa she can use it for her laptop. It doesn’t have an ink well, but it will have a Mont Blanc pen in it for her.”
Annabella said, “I can see where you get your ability to be good at so many different things, you learned it from your dad.”
There was a commotion coming from in the house, and then all of the kids ran out onto the pool deck. All of the kids were talking at once. Daisy said, “You’ll never guess, Uncle Paulie and Auntie Opal asked us! They want us all to be Godparents to, Paulie Jr, Celeste and Mary!”
All of the kids were hopping up and down in excitement. Pearl asked, “What did you say, are you willing to accept that responsibility?”
Flower spoke up, saying, “We accepted and said that we’d be honored. The babies are so cute. We know we can be good examples to them and we can teach them lots of things and help them to grow up to be good, honorable members of our community.”
Pete smiled; Flower had a very good grasp of the role of a Godparent.
Talley smiled happily and said, “That’s wonderful news, you’ll all be wonderful help to the babies. For now though, I have to get back to work. After I finish my catpaign blogs, I need to start planning some activities for the CC community. If any of you have ideas, feel free to share them with me.”
With that said Talley returned her attention to her computer and resumed typing.
Whiskers asked the kids what they had planned for the day and Flower said that he and the rest of the kids were going down to the airfield and help load donated supplies onto pallets for shipment to the various shelters. “Then,” He added, “I thought we’d take the Cessna Caravan over to Excalibur and see our fishermen friends.”
Tabitha said, “It’s very nice having a brother with his pilot’s license.”
Pete said, “That’s a good idea, Flower. Would you mind if I rode along, I need to talk with Edward about the new fish plant on the West Coast. He was saying that he wanted to go out there and spend some time showing the cats who work there how to handle the pocket ship fishing boats. Maybe you’d like to be their pilot, and take them in the Lear 85?”

Flower beamed, “You mean it, Uncle Pete?”
Ralph quickly asked, “Could I go along to help Flower?”
Pete said, “Definitely, Ralph. I’ve been thinking that we need more young pilots. Your Uncle Whiskers and I aren’t getting any younger. Would you like to take flying lessons? I’m thinking that you could be Flower’s first student.”
Ralph was speechless. Daisy asked, “What about me Uncle Pete? Could I take lessons as well?”
Pete nodded and said to Whiskers, “Before long brother, you and I can sit back and relax while a new generation takes the lead in our skies!
Whiskers smiled, and said, “I think we both have a lot of life left, but it will be nice to have these kids to step up when we need to retire”
Talley looked up. She said, the two of you have many more years of flying in front of you, so don’t think you’re going to sit back and let the kids do all of the work.”
Pete laughed and said, “Well okay, but I thought maybe I devote my golden years to woodworking and sailing.”
Talley smiled, “I’m sure we’ll find time for our hobbies, but meantime we have our responsibilities to our community.”
Pete bent down and hugged his sister, “I know, I was kidding, but not about teaching these kids to fly. Now, let’s get out of here, so Aunt Talley can get on with her work.
Whiskers sat down by Talley, while Pete and the kids headed off to the airfield.

hi Whiskers
We are so happy to hear that Abarna and Pepper are doing well. We like the temptations and Pudding loves party mix treats. Mom decided not to adopt the kitty at pet smart. Mom is still missing Finster and Nosey so much. It's very warm and sticky here. Mom has the air conditioning on but it is set at 74 so it will not be too expensive. Ling and the other cats are doing well and staying in the air conditioning. We cats are not dumb. Have a great day and stay cool. Sending hugs and love. Purrs A.Rhuby

Hi K. Whiskers,

Hi Whiskers!
I know, they've turned up the heat here too starting today, it's only supposed to be a week this time, and not as hot as last time. So they SAY anyway. We will see. I'm just glad we have the a/c in Mom's room at least, right now the windows are open and we have our sniffy screens. Sniffy screens are my favourite part of the summer!

Oh, weren't those Sharknado movies cheesy good fun? Totally stupid, but sometimes totally stupid is just what you want. If Mallow were here she would make a crack at ME right about now, I am feeling the sisterly love from across the Bridge.

I haven't seen an update on Dolly's Mom, I know this week is her week of chemo and tomorrow she's having her lung biopsy. Mom talked to her on Saturday & she couldn't talk very long because she had a sore throat & was coughing. So we're sending lots of purrs for her, and we're just thrilled that she's doing so much better than she was a few days ago. She can feel the CC community supporting her and she really appreciates all of it. -- Mike

Hi Whiskers
Wow..we are hot hot HOT! Today is the hottest day of the week so far..we hit 96* early in the afternoon. Too hot for beasts, bugs or birds outside.

We are due rain tomorrow {a 40% chance}, so hopefully we get a little of it, and after tomorrow we are cooling of to the mid 80's for the rest of the week.

Mom went out for awhile on the bus to cool off..she stopped off at Dollar General and picked up a few things, got herself a big jug of cold water and caught the bus back home.

We are bored...mom opened the back door for us now that the sun is gone, so we finally get to go in the yard til 11 or so...mom brings us in when she goes to bed!!

I can't tell you that I had fun today, it was too hot for fun..nothing to do but lay about and sleep...who wants to run around like a KRAYZEE KAT in this heat...see I can't even spell, the sun has melted my brain! {MOL}

Tomorrow mom is going in for her CT Scan of her abdomen to see what they can see..mom hopes it shows something so they can start her on a cure! She is so tired of being unable to keep anything down it isn't funny anymore.

Stay cool & have a pawsome evening!

Hey Whiskers!
Thanks very much for the hugs & healing vibes for Mom. She is doing okay. Today was a little tough as she had to go all day without icing or removing the boot. But she is fine. Got the ice on now. Glad Abarna is okay & sorry she scared everyone! I'm sure Ebony & Sugar Bear are very happy to see your Mom! It was 91* when Mom left work. Stopped at Walgreen's for a new tower fan as one of hers died this morning while she was in the shower! Brought it home & set it up! Darn thing doesn't work! It oscilates but no air comes out! Lovely! She will need to box it up & stop after work tomorrow to exchange it. Very upsetting! Mom just picked another 50 grape tomatoes & watered the garden. She got bitten 4 times on the back of her left thigh! Itches. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Angel Anderson

Hi Whiskers!
Haha! MY mom made that same mistake about 100 years ago or so. She had a big fluffy black cat named Merlin, and when she took him to the vet to be neutered, she left him there, and came back to get him that afternoon. They then informed her that "Merlin" was a female, and would be needing a new name! They DID spay "him" and mom had to pay the additional cost. And changed 'his' name to Merle!

So glad the gray kitty was reunited with its family. That's even better than finding it a new home! Bet the family was happy too. And I'll bet Pepper is grateful for the cat tree! Our small dog is part chihuahua and does have a really irritating yappy kind of bark. Mom never lets him bark in the house, but when he's outside sometimes she can't always be there to shut him up. It drives the neighbors nuts and mom sympathizes. We have an anti-bark collar but so far mom hasn't been able to make herself use it on him. She has to suck it up and do it! It's best for all concerned.

Glad your neighbor is feeling better too. All in all, lots of great mews!

Wonderful!!
Conclusion to the lost grey cat story... who turned out to be a girl. She will have her loving mom to take care of now too.
Did your mom get her the big girl surgery... or who knows if she needed it?
That was a LONG time to be lost. Good thing those poster went up too.
Well done, mom!!

Dear K. Whiskers & Family,
Greetings! My goodness, your weather is getting on up there! We have 108* predicted for today. It's only 89* right now, but it's only 6:36 AM. I want you kitties to stay in the house when it gets so hot.

Sorry to hear that Abarna gave you all a scare with her heart rhythms, but glad to hear she is stabilised. It's so cool that your Mom plays with and reads to Ebony and Sugar Bear! I'm sure they appreciate it a lot.

I will give my family big Angel kitty hugs from you all. We love you all, too, my gentle BFF.

Hi Kitties! It's Hedley. Hi Orangie!
Stopping by late tonight, but wanted to touch bases. Mom and Dad did have a nice time today.
Mom got to meet her cousin and his daughter, and got to hear lots of stories about that side of the family that she never heard before. Mostly history and stuff, but pretty interesting.
Seems that mom's maternal great grandfather was a Barbary Coast smuggler and pirate as a young man. Mol! Mom never heard about that! Other interesting stuff, too, but mom is pretty tired to go into it. Maybe she will email your mom about it in the coming days.

Hope Abarna continues to recover without any complications. Mom will say a prayer for her recovery.

It's gonna get hot up here, too, Orangie. But WE don't have any central AC, so we have to make do with fans and open, screened windows. It's supposed to get into the 80's in the City.
We get higher humidity here because of water on three sides of the city.

Have a pawsome evening, kitties! Goodnight, sweet Orangie.

Hi Whiskers
We are keeping Abarna in our prayers for a steady recovery so she can get back to her fur babies. I'll be by to sprinkle some angel dust on her.
I'm sure that Ebony and Sugar Bear love the extra attention from your mom. How wonderful of all of you to share. :)
Yeah, it was a pathetic turnout for GGM. GGM was hurt by it, even though she's not saying much about it. GM and Mom are angry. They say from now on, they will take her out themselves.
We have a hot week ahead. There are chances for rain/storms but not too great. Welcome to the dog days of summer.
We are still very happy for little Pepper being reunited with her mom. :)

Talley and Whiskers insisted on doing the kitchen
cleanup after breakfast. Talley rinsed the dishes and Whiskers loaded the washer.
Flower and the rest of the kids were getting ready for a day on the lake. Whiskers had promised that he would teach them to water ski today, and they were super excited. Pete had even had water skis custom made for Bumper Lisa and their kids. Thomas and Mitch were helping Pete load the boat and were getting all of the floatation devices and skis ready. Annabella and Pearl handed Pete tools as he worked on attaching the floating platform to the end of the boat house dock.
They would begin teaching the kids to ski, by letting them sit on the platform with their skis in the proper position and then when they were ready, Whiskers would apply power and they should have no trouble standing up on their skis. Once they had mastered that, they would work on starting out from deeper water.
Pete finished securing the platform and climbed back up on to the dock and said, “Well, the platform is ready now all we need is for Whiskers to bring the boat around and for the kids to get here. I’ll let everyone know we’re ready, can I bring drinks back for anyone?” Annabella pointed to the big cooler and said, “Thomas brought drinks for everyone. There are some snacks in there too.”
Pete hurried up to the house and found Talley and Whiskers getting ready to bring the kids down to the dock. Talley said, “I was just going to call you. Do you know what time dad has PT today?”
Pete nodded, “He’s got his session at noon and then he has an evaluation with Aunt Barbara after that. He said he was going to take mom out to a late lunch and thought that they’d be home around three.”
Talley looked at here watch and said, “It’s not quite eleven yet, so we can call after the skiing lessons. I hope dad has a good evaluation.”
Pete smiled, “I hope so too, so far, so good. He’s really motivated to get things back to normal. At dinner on Friday, Aunt Barbara told him that he was doing very well, but that he shouldn’t push too hard.”
Whiskers checked his day bag one last time and said, “Okay kids let’s go skiing!” Flower, Timothy and Ralph picked up their sisters day bags and hurried outside. Pete, Talley, Whiskers, Angel Maggie and Callie hurried after them. Whiskers quickly checked his Riva Powerboat and then started the powerful turbo charged diesel engines. He backed out of

the boat house and pulled neatly along the side the docks boarding platform. Talley was busy making sure that all of the kids had put their sunscreen on and Mitch got the kids settled. He said, “Whiskers and I have decided that the best way to show you what you need to do is to have your Aunt Talley demonstrate the take off for you. She’ll make one pass around the lake and then we’ll start working with all of you. I have numbers for all of you here in my hat so each of you pick a number and then line up. That’s the order that we’ll go in.”
Thomas got into the boat with Whiskers to handle the towline and Pete climbed in to be the spotter. Talley took off her cover-up and Whisker smiled proudly. His beautiful wife was in her emerald green bikini. Pete smiled and said, “Whiskers if you want I can pilot the boat and you can be spotter for Talley.”
Whiskers laughed, “It’s okay Pete, every time I see Talley in her bikini I just feel like the luckiest tom in the whole world.”
Pete said, “Talley is pretty lucky too. You two are perfect for one another.”
Thomas tossed the tow line to Mitch who took it onto the start platform, where he handed it to Talley. Whiskers maneuvered the boat and took up the slack in the tow line. Talley sat on the platform with the tips of her skis pointing up and explained to the watching kids that this was the position that they would start from, “When you’re ready yell go and Uncle Whiskers will take off. You’ll come up out of the water and you steer by leaning in the direction you want to go. When you come back, just let go of the rope and you’ll slow down. Then swim back to the dock.”
Everyone said they understood, and Talley yelled, “Go!”
Pete repeated the command to Whiskers who brought the throttles to full power. Talley was up and skiing in less than ten feet. Whiskers entered a gentle turn along the shore of the lake and Talley leaned to cut across the wake of the boat and jumped several feet in the air. She landed gracefully and continued cutting back and forth across the wake. As Whiskers circled the lake Talley swung across the wake, released the towline and glided gently across the water and settled several feet from the launching platform. She slipped out of her skis and pushed the gently toward Mitch who grabbed them and placed them on the dock. Talley climbed out of the water and said. “Does anyone have any questions?”
Tabitha asked, “Aunt Talley what if we fall off of our skis? What do we do?”

Talley said, Uncle Pete will be watching the whole time. If you fall, he’ll tell Whiskers to come back and pick you up. You have you flotation vest on and you just have to wait a minute or two and them Thomas and Pete will lift you out of the water and put you and your skis in the boat.”
Tabitha nodded and said, “I’m ready.”
Tabitha got into her skis and Talley sat by her on the platform. Whiskers Maneuvered the boat into position and Thomas tossed the tow line to Mitch who took it to Tabitha. Talley noted that Tabitha was in exactly the right position and said, “When you’re ready yell, go.”
Tabitha yelled, “Go!” and off she went. She was up and skiing, a little shaky at first but she straightened up and began enjoying herself. She made some gentle turns and was laughing happily as they circled the lake. She let go of the rope and she slid to a gentle stop just feet from the platform. Flower and all of the kids were cheering loudly and hugging her as she climbed out of the water.
The kids each took their turn and as Ralph, who was the last of the kids to take a turn returned to the dock, Storm, Inky and Bobby came putting up to the dock with their little yellow fishing boat. They had been fishing at the far end of the lake, and had caught all the fish they needed to prepare dinner for their girlfriends, Chloe and Esmeralda. Inky told the kids, “We were watching you and just wanted to say that was some mighty fine skiing.”
The kids all hugged their friends. Flower told Inky, “It was lots of fun; I hope we didn’t scare the fish away.”
Storm opened the cooler and showed them their catch. “We caught all we needed, and then some. We’ll probably freeze some of these to have for another meal.”
Whitey said, “We have some Tuna salad up at the house would you like to join us for a late lunch?”
The boys thanked her but said they need to get their fish cleaned and start dinner for their guests. They bid a fond farewell and started the small outboard to head back to the boat landing.
The girls and the kids went up to the house to get showered and changed, while the guys raised the boat onto the lift and cleaned it and the gear. When they were done they walked up to the house. On the way, he suggested a cookout dinner, featuring his slow smoked ribs. They guys approved.

Pete waited until everyone was showered and changed, and then he placed a Skype call to his dad and mom. He had put it up on the big screen in the living room.
His mom answered and smiled when she saw him and the family. “Let me get you dad, Pete. I’ll be right back. She disappeared from the screen and a moment later she and dad were back.
Pete asked, “How did it go dad?”
Dad Mike smiled, “It went very well. My therapist says I’m the best patient he’s ever had. Aunt Barbara even approved me for seven pounds. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it’s good progress. I cut the grass this afternoon. The new lawnmower is a dream. I did the whole yard using just my left arm.”
Talley said, “So, Aunt Barbara didn’t think you were pushing too hard?”
Dad Mike said, “She told me that I was doing okay so far, but not to push any harder. She says another month or so and I’ll be good to go. Oh, I wanted to tell Whiskers and his sisters how happy we both were to hear that little Pepper was reunited with his family. It must have been great to see that reunion. I also wanted to ask how Whiskers dad is coming with his implants.”
At one point during the call, Flower disappeared and came back with a big card that he and the other kids had made. It was a full sheet of poster board with intricately drawn flowers, butterflies and birds as a background for a big ‘get well soon’. It brought tears to Mike’s eyes and he told the kids that he loved it and he loved them. Daisy said, “I sure wish we could hug you, grampa Mike.”
It was a good call and the whole family felt happy and relieved when they disconnected.
It had been a great day and was going to a really nice family evening!
