A Cat Was Involved

Coming August 14, an e-short story about the day Chet and Bernie met. You don’t necessarily have to have an e-reader. More on that when Spence and Admin get back together. Meanwhile, here’s what the cover looks like.

    Good morning all. I was pretending I was a cat this morning and caught a baby bird, a sparrow I think. I dropped it right away when Barb yelled “Leave It!”, but I think it died of shock. Barb put it down outside the fence, but it didn’t recover. I feel bad.

    Those are great pictures. Scary as all get out, but excellent.

    Tummies were the beginning of the day. Zoë let Patsy in my room after her breakfast (complete with garlic). When she heard me waking up, she climbed on the bed and it was kisses and tummies. Nothing like garlic!

    Have not been feeling tip top. Turns out my ulcer is back. Hmmm, stress? What stress? Upped the meds. That should work.

    Riö, take care! You might consider weighing down your friend’s mom by putting Beau on her!

    Of COURSE a Kat was involved. Kats are involved in everything. Kats run the world. Kats are ubiquitous and all powerful and all knowing.

    12:45 pm on June 27th, 2012

    I can’t remember what Masquers or Bear said.

    Why did I write “your” when it should be “you’re”……..Banned Error!!

    Rio, yes your state is on fire and I agree with you about why be a tourist there right now. The same is true of parts of NM. Why be a tourist when you will be gassed by wildfire smoke and won’t be able to see any of the Rocky Mountains because they are enveloped in smoke from the fires.
    Our Governor does the same thing.

    Huge tents that sell fireworks have sprouted up all over our state. The governor wants the power to ban firworks state wide when we have drought conditions, but the legislature won’t pass that bill. I would say that our legislature has the collective IQ of a goldfish, and they do, but they have been bought off by the fireworks lobby.

    Fire!…The whole City is going to burn up….groan!

  25. OleyHowlers
    1:25 pm on June 27th, 2012

    We cannot even imagine the thought of fireworks in such dry conditions with such high winds. That is ludicrous.

  26. B.Stover
    1:55 pm on June 27th, 2012

    That’s terrible about the fire. I think fireworks are banned by law in Michigan except that local governments can put on a display on July 4.

    Thank you for the info Melanie.

    Staff: Can you bake pies?

  27. Staff

    Oh, and BSD said they would be back by Friday evening.

    I have been working on moving the host for YSAS website for the past 3 days. Finally got it done when I discover that Yahoo has to change ONE thing. Except they won’t let me change that information because they don’t think he exists. Even though he’s been paying them for over 2 years. I am 8 minutes into a 25 minute phone hold.

    I am NOT pleased.

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    2:16 pm on June 27th, 2012

    Staff!…What exactly did you change in your “corrected” entry?…sniff!…It still has the same mistakes…heh!heh!

  32. Macy the Min-Pin
    2:35 pm on June 27th, 2012

    Mom and I can make any kind of “virtual” pie you want. Cranberry pecan with gluten free crust? No problem. Canadian gooseberry with fresh cream? Got it. Pug lip Crumble? If you want it we can do it.

    The parents are about to leave Houston about now. Happy trails to them.

  33. Melanie
    2:45 pm on June 27th, 2012

    Happy Trails to Yoouuuuuu . .

    I hope those horses are okay. Anyhoo, Yahoo now realizes that YSAS does exist and we fixed the problem. Now just have to wait 24 to 72 hours before his site can be seen again.


    B.Stover: Ditto back at ya!

    3:29 pm on June 27th, 2012

    Rio and Siber – be safe! We are very worried about you and many of our other friends out there.

    Macy – Pug Lip Crumble? Ick!

    Bee – the Wrotten Kats are Shocked! Shocked, I tell you, that you would agree with Rio in that “sniff”
    (we thought it was funnier that a pie in the face pratfall)

    Melanie – your patience will be rewarded someday – think of all the Karma points you are earning.

    So – in less than 24 hours – SNOWBELLA WILL BE HERE!!!
    Wooo Wooo Hoooooo Hoooooooo!!!!!

    4:08 pm on June 27th, 2012

    I do not have on my Kromer. I repeat: no Kromer. What if she doesn’t know it’s me and we end up bashing around Atlanta with strangers?

  39. Melanie
    4:20 pm on June 27th, 2012

    AWESOME! GO SNOWHOOK! GO GAMECOCKS! Oh, wait, I’m I allowed to say that on the Blog?

    Let’s find out.

  40. Melanie
    4:23 pm on June 27th, 2012

    Yup! Bella, do you have any of your winter gear on?

    Next thing on list done. Our go-to guy for house repairs, Steve, came by and figured out what is going to be needed to fix our 200 year old house so that he can paint it.

    Not as bad as we thought. Several windows have to be replaced but that’s okay. Some boards and fixing an area where two roof lines meet and we get ice dams. They are going to fix on and off for the next month and then paint. Should be done by the middle of September.

    Rio – Kirby’s mom said something about trying to go to Atlanta a lot of posts ago. It’s very cool that she was able to get there to meet Bella. Safe journey to both of them as they move on as well as safe journey to all the east coasters. (that’s you, Little Sammie…)

    It’s supposed to be over 100 here tomorrow. I’m glad I’m an indoor kat.

    Internet Reading Group: you might check out the Tyrus Books site. They offer free kindle and nook books each week. There’s also an interesting article in the June 25 New Yorker, by Ken Auletta. “Paper Trail” – did publishers and Apple collude against Amazon? PSQA might have an opinion on the e-book issues.

    I bought a 1/2 gallon of liquid blood today. YSAS needs it for his Zombies on Sunday.

    MollyPop’s Mom has mentioned she is going to Princess Sam’s tomorrow and spending the night before she heads southeast.

    I’m going to bed so I can get up early and do all those things I usually do so I can get out of here before 8:30 so I can get to the Royals’ by 9:15 so we can go pick up a certain SOMEONE! Safe Travels Every One!

    We have been busy and off the blog most of the day.

    Good news! We have a good solid offer on the house, from a good buyer who loves Barb’s decorating and everything about the place. We were presented with the offer this afternoon, and will be countering tomorrow morning. Ww are very close price wise, and everything should be fine. She wants to close first of August, but we are requesting mid August. We are excited to say the least!

    Update from Atlanta: After a secret ballot, we have determined that both of us stopped being witty and clever early this afternoon and therefore have nothi funny to say.

    We toured the Coca Cola plant, walked through te Olympic park, spent an hour chit chatting in the hotel lobby and lost track of time and are now sitting down to dinner.

    KirbyT did not make the trip, but I can report his mom has the most beautiful skin.

    Rio: We made a brief mention about the great Atlanta Summit, but plans were not able to be solidified until Monday. Can you believe she drove all that way..?

    9:27 am on June 28th, 2012

    I don’t know how many times KirbyT’s mom and I said good-bye. I think it was more than two, but why bother counting any higher. We would bid farewell and anther fifteen minutes would pass. Again and again we repeated the routine, but there was much to say and learn about her and KTP and so little time. It was after midnight when the good-bye finally stuck. I am so glad she made the drive. It was a treat spending time with her. Once we started talking it was hard to stop.

    We read the blog a couple of times during our visit and saw Barb’s good news! Excellent!

    You would think when my wake up time rang a couple hours after we said good-bye I would have a hard time getting out of bed. Not so. Today brings with it another treat of the meeting Spence and KTP’s mom variety. At the thought of meeting even more Plunderers and the extended Plundering family, I sprang out of bed eager to ready myself for the day. In just a couple of hours I will be picke up at the airport by Stinky Mama and Melanie. Woohoo!

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
