Some cats commit murder on mice and birds. ;-)
No, that's NOT murder. That's just natural instinct. BIG difference.

Of course...I was just kidding. I'm sure that cats have no malice aforethought. Mine always bring theirs to me as "presents."

Awww, how nice. Happy Valentine's Day! Any plans?

My hubby and I refuse to go out on amateure's nights like New Year's eve, or today. We're going to just stay in and have dinner, made by me, and a nice bottle of wine and watch last Sunday's 'Downton Abbey'. Another WILD night of us crazy gays in our round the clock action packed lives.

PS, a hint...I don't ordinarily eat much candy, too many hours on the treadmill to make up for it, but it is fun to go to Walgreen's or CVS or any other place like that on Feb. 15 to load up on the marked down stock left over, and there is usually plenty. They are in a fever to tool up for Easter, in fact, I saw some Easter jelly beans in the supermarket last night. You have to get there early or you will be left with heart shaped 'Circus marshmallow' "peanuts" or 'almond cluster aluminum' or something oddball like that!

A domestic cat will usually NEVER, or rarely, eat its kills. They aren't hungry, they just go out and slaughter mice and birds because it is fun for them. They act as if the mouse is another play toy.

One morning, in my old house, I woke up walked by the living room entry and saw a huge dead rat on the floor. I found out later it had gotten in by pipe under the bathroom sink. THAT was sealed up quickly. Anyway, my dear white Siamese had taken care of that disgusting beast and had not taken one bite of it. Do you blame him? He got EXTRA treats all day.

Crazy gays -- LOL!! Such a sick and twisted lifestyle -- eating dinner, drinking wine and watching Downton Abbey. You're going to hell for sure. ;-)

Will for sure stock up on some high-end candy tomorrow if there's any left. My sister is the only one I know who actually likes circus peanuts. I find them cloyingly sweet.

When I lived in New York, my cats went out to play every day, and were outside an average of 12 hours a day.

But since moving to southern Arizona, I have been advised by EVERYONE, inclduing my vet, NOT to let my cats go outside here because of the wildlife here, such as javelina, coyotes, bobcats, and other animals which people say will attack and kill domestic cats. So teh 3 of them are now strictly inside cats. They would probably be ok if Ilet them outside, but I don't want to take a chance. And they seem content to stay in the house, and just stare out the sliding glass door.

Circus peanuts are HORRIBLE, that's why I joked about them being a consolation prize. I hope you urge your sister for counseling!!

The Russel Stover are usually good. The Whitman's Sampler ones go FAST. Don't think me GAY or anything, but I got a pink heart box last year with a big photo of a kitten on it. I still have that box. It is SO cute.

The left over pretty candy boxes make me sort of sad. They remind me of missed opportunities in life, they represent lost chances, like the sad Christmas trees in abandoned lots on December 26. I get so sad for those under appreciated candy boxes that I adopt them to give them one last chance of being enjoyed!

Good. Do NOT let them out! They will be fast food for some coyote and I can't think of a more dreadful ending for a loved pet. You shouldn't let your cats out anyway. Too easy to pick up parasites or illnesses or ticks or to get hit by a car, or eaten by some predator.

Coyotes can jump HIGH fences.

Yes, better to keep them inside; if you let them out once, they'll drive you crazy wanting to go out again.

I know! I like the big, corny candy boxes too -- the frillier the better. And whatever happened to Christmas corsages -- the kind your mom & aunts wore at Christmas on their coats? I used to love those and I guess they've gone by the wayside. Sad. I guess I have a little "Auntie Mame" in me.

God for you! Auntie Mame..."buy it at Gimble's!"

When my mom and her sisters and cousins "went into the City" downtown Pittsburgh, they would put on nylons and dresses and high heels and hats and the whole 9 yards. g I recall asking them why and they said "We can't go into the city not dressed up!" As if they were going to some big event.

When my parents went to other people's homes for parties, or vice versa, the men wore ties and the ladies dresses and high heels, ala the "Dick Van Dyke show".

When my parents went out in Las Vegas they dressed to kill, including my mother's mink stole.

On planes the folks dressed as if going to church.

The more genteel days are over. I have loads of BEAUTIFUL ties from work and still slap on a white shirt over blue jeans and don one of my heavy silk ties. It pisses everyone off at the casual gatherings we have, but they all admit it looks good. I don't care. I find a tie on a white shirt INCREDIBLY masculine and attractive.

I have a collection of old Christmas pins and wear them on lapels or shirts, like Christmas trees or wreathes of whatever. Why not? They are FUN!

And it still bugs you that blacks and the Gay equality movement have a lot in common.

Which is why you always want to silence the truth.

But I'm hoping before that time they catch him with a "baggage handler" he hired off of rentboy dot com. He's so fixated on gay men, you know he's a closet case.
I hope he's not one of us. Oh wait, he's not. We have pride and fight for equal treatment. All he has is bigotry, hate and arrogance.

I think we may be cut from the same cloth, and we're definitely from the same era because I had the same experiences, and I even remember it being a big deal to "go down to Pittsburgh" esp. for Christmas shopping. I was born in western PA.

I remember my parents getting dressed up for church in te early & mid sixties. And they insisted me and my brother wear a suit and tie to go to church. My mother wore a hat, and veil, white gloves, the whole bit.

And despite me asking my father many times WHY a woman MUST wear a hat in church, and a man NEVER wear a hat in church, unless he was a Catholic priest, the only answer I ever got: "was just shut up and put on that tie !"

I haven't worn a suit and tie in at least 3 decades and after the last time I SWORE I never would do so again. Ties are just friggin stupid !(And a HUGE germ collector).

Yea but you can always use a tie for other things, like wiping your snot or food off your face. Hell, you can use them as a tourniquet in an emergency, or as a makeshift belt to hold your pants up.
