Ana, Sandy and family
Beautiful profile picture! Happy belated birthday to your family. Sorry that we're so behind on our blogs. The secretary is to blame! It's been a good week at the cathoue. No vetspital visits and while mom has had to work late a couple of evenings, none of those were due to us or our health. Mom is ready to fast forward the time until next spring or April, whichever comes first. She cannot seem to stay warm and she's had it with those furry winter coats. Hope you and your family are doing purrificatically. Forgot how to spell so please overlook my typos.

Hi Sandy & Fursibs
oh gosh, thanks very much for coming by to congratulate me on my COTD yesterday. I just loved the baked shiny round ornament filled with yummy seafood that you baked.
The board games were sure a big hit at my celebration since it was raining outside and cold here in Az. I sure had a wonderful time thanks to you and others coming over.

Hugs & Kisses,

Hi Ana, Sandy, Haley & Angels
Sure glad your Mommy had a great time on her special day. Hope the weather stays nice. Cold and dark is so depressing. The men came today and cleaned the yard for Winter. Mom had to go behind them and point out what they missed. She says she's going to have to do it herself to get it right. B & G

Dear Ana & Family,
I can certainly understand Janet's upset with her sister for the last few months. I always say, if you've got something to say to me, say it to my face. Don't go around behind my back. I think just because Ruth got a full-time job is no reason to start trying to dictate what Janet should do. She's been with that place nearly 22 years and there's no way *I'd* leave the job.

I hope the clouds let the sunshine come out for Janet. And the 50s by Christmas Eve? Even with a hard rain, that will be nice. My Mama just got through getting all her sweaters and jackets up to the front of the closet and she's wearing a sweater right now.

Well I just know I'd love the Anglo-American Shepherd's Pie if Sandy says it's good. And my Mama said Janet can vent with her any time she sees fit to. Mama is a good listener and even sometimes has something that will help the situation. But she doesn't want to be a buttinski.

Come on, I want you and Malachi to teach me catopoly. I love you and my furbro, too. Hope you and yours have a fine Friday.

Purrs & hugs,
Mason

My darling Ana,
So the you-know-what hit the proverbial fan today up there? I'll bet it was a relief to Janet to finally get this stuff out in the open. That takes a load off one's shoulders. It was great that Janet apologised to Mommy and Nat alone. Hopefully Ruth is smart enough to quit going behind Janet's back now. Mama and I are always here for Janet if she needs to blow off steam or talk something out.

So Janet decided to make the Anglo-American Shepherd's Pie? I'll bet that is so good, especially is Sandy likes it. Crock pots are great, my Mama says.

That's cool that Janet and Nat finished up the shopping *and* Janet got to meet with the company big wig. I think it's great that she is coming up on 22 years with her store! The man had some good advice -- every family has "one of those types" in it and if you can't get along, just ignore them. It does no good to fight and have strife. Janet could get ulcers from that type of stress! But sometimes one just has to take the high and mighty down a peg or two. It's happened in my Mama's family before, so she can really relate.

Did you, your sisfurs and the Angels enjoy having Mason visit us today? Isn't he a wonderful cat? I take a bit of pride in finding such a good kitty and then guiding him and my pawrents together. Of course I'm helping him learn the ropes and the likes and not-likes of our pawrents. He is very intelligent and a quick study. I like him a lot. Well, I better go now. Our computer has been acting weird, losing Internet connectivity and Mama had to go reset the brand new modem on Internet Explorer (we use Google Chrome). So if I disappear it is computer trouble, not a migraine this time. Hopefully we can stay connected. My Daddy is not here today. A friend of ours, Bert, came by and took him to work with him on a project today. It's good, right when we needed a little bit of extra money. The Lord will provide. Amen.

Love eternally,
Your Mali

12.19 Long Drive and Rush into the CH Day
Players have been collecting their evergreens, liver fruitcake blocks, whacking their best (*snicker) long drives, and then racing to the Club House for fun & refreshment. Ah, golf, there's nothing like it.
To get started Luvbug (40) was generously thinking of Ol'Toothy today and brought left over fruitcake to the water. Angel mallow (44) also complaining (of course) about rain, dragged a bunch of evergreens in here. Are we having Christmas/Holiday trees? While Yowling Steve (26) brought his very special 26 draped in icicles. Show off?
UBB (25) who is NOT in therapy-- his mom is in PT with a handsome man-- also dragged a sack of unwanted livercake to Ol' Toothy. You can smell him burping from here. No, mimi (37) you are not even near the barn... that would be UBB. Now that the barn is heated with a/c and that cute mew still... what's not to love?
Since everycat is running to the CH to keep warm Engine (39) is racing the food cart right behind them and through the door. We get a big pot of Spam stew and furless pink panther drinks. Thanks, I think... Tuck & Dot post a icy 28 and Yowl carols all the way into the Clubhouse, too.
Bee Gee (37) Voting for an Undercat Day. Although she thinks she's an overcoat, er, cat... uppercat?
No, Ana, you are only last not late.
Here's how we did today:
1st - Angel Evergreen mallow (44)
2nd - Luvbug (40)
3rd - N-Gin (39) Incredible food!!

We really hope that something DOES
come of the relationship between Janet and Rick. Janet has every right to be happy, and Rick sounds like the kind of person who would be good to her and for her. The idea of moving somewhere and getting remarried is probably scary, but it's worth the risk. As for wedding guests, Janet would be free to invite or not invite anyone she wanted. "Family" doesn't always mean "friendship" or even that you like someone. There are some in Mom's family that she hasn't spoken to in years, and won't speak to unless apologies are forthcoming. It used to bother her, but she's past that now. She says it's their loss, not hers. Hugs, Pique and the Zoo Crew

Hey Ana!
Janet shouldn't stress herself out! No need to do double blogs over the holidays. Lots of kitties are off & not blogging every day. They won't miss the blogs. Janet shouldn't make more work for herself than necessary. My Mom will be at Uncle's for the holiday. Hope Mommy enjoys her special dinners. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect day. Kitty Kisses. Legend

My dearest darling,
Good morning to you! I'm sending you a quick catmail while I'm fixing breakfast for all of us. Scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon strips and buttered toast. I'm also making a nice pot of hot catnip tea. I'll come and wake you up soon.

Today should be a fine day with a high of 63* and an overnight low of 43*. That's how cold it got last night, too. How do you like the new comforter? Keep you toasty last night?

Well, I'd better get back to the breakfast. My furbro Mason is going to come by for a visit this afternoon around 2:00 PM. We should all go do something fun. I'll let you decide. I love you so much, sweetie!

Love eternally,
Your Mali

Dear Ana & Family,
Oh, my! Yes, my Mama said that stuffed animals are just priced sky high and it's ridiculous. I don't blame Janet at all.

Please tell Mommy that Mama Jody, Angel K. Malachi and Mason all say a very happy birthday to her. A nice roast and Vermont maple syrup baked beans sounds wonderful. I'm sure Mommy will like it anyway.

So because of the storms it will feel cooler up there? Is that because of the wind? I'm so glad that you and your fur family winter down here with Angel Malachi. Very happy for you all.

I hope Janet had a good walk with Pepper this morning. Hoping that you and yours have a great Thursday.

Purrs & hugs,
Mason

Chocolate covered ANYthing? 12-16-14
Okay, you asked for it! Luvbug(40) arrives wearing chocolate covered slushy shoes and smelling like chocolate covered wet fur. Eeww! ... Oh, well, y'all had to KNOW this was coming. Mallow(37) brings in enough chocolate covered liver fruitcake for everyone! Oh, you shouldn't have. Really ... Oh no. Steve(40), Mr. Chocolate himself. He could have chocolate covered ANYthing, and what does he do? Chocolate covered Barney backlash. Ouch.

The Angels bounce down the chocolate covered temperature stairs to a low of 28 ... Yes! UBB(32) arrives at the links with bags of chocolate covered catnip chips! Woohoo! ... Engine(30) has a truckload of chocolate covered goodies. Crispy Crow, Parched(?) Penguin, and Cricket Calzones, all followed by a kick from Ole Yule Mule! Ow! ... Oohh, no liver fruitcake for Mimi(37), chocolate covered or not. She makes a beeline to Engine's Ratty Roadster.

Tucker(41), that dysfunctional duffer, is all a-quiver for fruitcake of liver, chocolate covered or not! You can have mine, Mimi's, AND Bee Gee's! ... Speaking of Bee Gee(32), she arrives with a sack full of chocolate covered Stupid Toys. Oh yeah, those Barbie heads we like to practice with.

Not many "long drives" in this bunch today. Let's see who came out on top:
1st - Tucker, 41. Getting full of liver fruitcake yet?
2nd - Tie. Luvbug & Steve, 40. Watch out for Mr.Chocolate, he seems a bit TOO happy today.
3rd - Tie. Mallow & Mimi, 37. Uh oh. Liver fruitcake meets "You know where you can shove that liver fruitcake". Should be interesting. Better than stupid toys!

Looks like the Angels are in the barn today! Careful not to slip on that chocolate covered staircase! Now let's all head to the lounge for chocolate covered something. Besides liver fruitcake.

Hi Ana, It’s Pete,
My poor dad can’t remember which recipe he sent, (he’s getting old and forgetful and has hundreds of recipes) but it doesn’t matter, because mom asked him to make some cookies for her office and he tried these.
These may be the best Christmas Cookies ever! Dad made two batches for her to take to work and they were a big hit. They are easy and only take about thirty minutes (not counting cooling time)

Ingredients
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1/4 tsp natural peppermint extract
• 1 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour (or whole wheat pastry)
• 1/3 cup cocoa powder
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp baking powder
• 1 candy cane, finely crushed
• 1/3 cup dark, bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together for about 1-2 minutes. Add egg, peppermint extract and beat until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as you go to ensure even mixing.
3. Add flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking soda and powder to a sifter and sift gradually over the wet ingredients mixing as you go. Mix until well combined.
4. Add chocolate chips and stir in with a mixing spoon and then chill in the freezer for 10 minutes while the oven finishes heating.
5. Form the dough into small balls (heaping 1 Tbsp) and place 1.5 inches apart on an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Press the tops down and then top with a few more chocolate chips (to indicate what's inside).
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes - the edges should start to dry but the tops will still be slightly soft looking. Let set on the cookie sheet for a few minutes more but sprinkle crushed candy cane on immediately.
7. Transfer to a cooling rack to rest until completely cooled. Store in an airtight container to keep fresh for up to a few days or freeze for several weeks.

Good luck and Merry Christmas
Your Pal, Pete

I cannot believe that we got mom's attention now twice in a week!! She's been a bit under the weather with a severe sinus infection but she really hasn't slowed down much. We like it when she goes to bed early 'cause we keep her warm. Hope you have a great weekend...it's supposed to be icky here tomorrow with rain and temperatures in the low 40ies.

I let mom pet me lots now. Dad thinks that I have been more distant since my boyfurrriend Sylvester #11567 is no longer here, but mom said it's just the opposite since I do let her pet me more.

I hope to visit lots of furrriends this morning! Mom does need to clean house before their purrrsonal Bible Study couple gets here.
