hello AB!Happy Noon Bird threaders. I hope everyone is nice and warm since we woke up with 15 degrees temps. What???? It's suppose to be spring. lol
The birds are chirping like it is. I am enjoying this big fat robin that refuses to let the big black birds run it off from the bird feeder. Just too funny. The cats are in the window enjoying the fight.
Nope, I am glad you are going to get a new critter to fill the void of your loss. I have a big fat tom that adopted us when his owners left him while moving. I have had him for four years now although he really belongs to noone. I think he is the stud of the area. He roams, comes back to eat, drink fresh water and sleep it off in "his" cushioned chair or if it is freezing out he crawls into a pet carrier I put into a draw string garbage bag, wrapped in a moving blanket (keeps the cold from the holes in carrier) and then a nice fleece baby blanket to sleep on. He was wary of it at first, like I was trying to capture him or something. He eventually figured out it was there to keep him from the elements and uses it quite often. He is a pure joy. The two house cats (female) watch him from the window and sometimes goes to the door sniffing for him. Just too funny. I love him and if I haven't seen him for a couple days I worry.
Betty, your pet stories are hilarious. Thanks for the laugh. Plus the recipes for laundry day.
AW, I never pictured you a cat person. You and your dog just fit each other. He is adorable, floppy ear and all. lol
lala, hope you are feeling good and done with your taxes. I wish mine were done. I have to let someone else do them this year with extra funds incoming from retirement bonus and cash Mom left us. Ugh. I can't wait to see the grand total the IRS will want. My appointment is next week. I will be glad to get it over with.
I know the thread is slowing down. I don't think we have had the "hot flame" since UNA left. lol
Didn't see Blueminer posting, I hope he and his dad are doing okay. OJG? Hempburn? Hope everyone else is okay and getting ready for Spring/Summer.
Day two and in the 20's. Yuk It does give me time to work on the Spring cleaning concept so when it does get nice and warm again I won't be stuck indoors.
I hope everyone enjoys their day.
i went to sams this afternoon to stock up on off brand allergy pills.... i can feel spring coming.... i dread and long for it to be here. i know i wont be able to breath till summer but i also know that its just one month closer to amish strawberry time :) yummo!!!!!!! they set up on the south end of town in a few spots (mostly the lot where big t truck stop used to be and in glendale next to the highway) they sell a half gallon bucket for 6.50.
i went through rineyville the other day and noticed that the fruit stand guy (the one right before you get to bp) had put his tables back out...cant wait for him to be set up either. last year he had these tomatoes that were kinda orangy and not good looking at all but he gave me one free when i stopped to buy a couple watermelons and told me he swears by them and whos going to turn don a free tomato you know. he was not lying and they really do taste awesome, cut awesome, and keep longer than any of the ones i got from anywhere else, im hooked! i tried growing my own last year and they flopped. the only things i got out of everything i put down were blueberries and pole beans..... but a lot of that had to do with my down time and my knee. cant wait to get back in the garden this year and hopefully make it all the way to harvest injury free and get to can some things this year. i had asked everyone for canning supplies for my birthday last year and havent gotten to use any of it yet. think i may grow some peppers this year also.
i am d.o.n.e. with the weather flip flops! im sure in a month or so we will be back in the heat advisory days and i will be complaining about that but right now its "bring on the heat!"
