I have 2 Guinea Pigs,both girls and they just love to make me laugh at the silly things they do. I had 4 others before them and they were all family. I miss them but they are in heaven watching over me.

Hi 10k we also took our rottie and min- pins to the vet school up in Madison. It was the best place and they all loved our rotti they wanted to keep her for their school maskott lol. But we chose to keep her she was so loved by all, and the min-pins were always at her side. I know how you and your Mom must be feeling they are our best friends but we are praying here and I have said a special one for Otis. Well I have to admit it is nice to look at how mom's beautiful yard has turned out and it was fun watching them run for cover lol. Have to wait for the rain to stop and then more dead-heading and leave blowing out front, the pine burns and smells so good! I hope all 2's and 4's have a great weekend, little Haley is having fun chasing that goofy red squirrel and picking up leaves and small branches( very small)lol.

howdy mags..

mom's dog, Otis, had surgery this morning for a sarcoma tumor..the vet was gonna keep him overnight, but he said Otis was doing well enough to come home..the internet is a bad place to read about stuff like this, so i went to the NC State University Veterinary School site to see what they said abut it-our vet graduated from the NCSU Vet School..basically it comes down to how long it was there before mom found it-early detection has a 90% survival rate, but he will not know anytime til the biopsy comes back..

congrats on finishing mom's side of the yard-lol..i need to dead head some of my stuff too-i gotta make the time to do it..there is a differnce in "boys will be boys", and thugs..those thugs can't boss y'all around-just continue to smoke 'em out ; )

have a great Friday 2s and 4s..

Hello all 2's and 4's, hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. 10k any news about your Mom's dog we are saying prayers for her and the dog! Well i finally finished the side of Mom's yard now all i have to do is the front and the other side. Started Dead heading most of the garden around the shed and the house Haley had ground patrol. Even she doesn't like the neighbors in back, their boys like to tease and tend to be very loud from 7a.m. to when ever. If they are not yelling they are fighting and crying, very different but they say boys will be boys. I just wear ear plugs and smile, they like to try and boos Mom and I around and they don't like it when I burn. Besides I like to garden and the vegetables were so good this year, I just try to get along and do my thing I do love to be outside feel the sun and just relax, do a lot of reading out on the swing if I'm not working. Well I hope you all have a lovely Friday!:)

LOL, yes the neighbors are a little upset with me wait til the weekend! Time to put in the old manure stuff so that the garden continues to grow good things to eat and look at. So StArrow sounds like you are enjoying your selfs with the the new babies I bet they are beauties with all the energy tons of love! 10k those laser pointers are so funny to use and then watch them chase the lite and its good exercise for them.

howdy y'all..

St Arrow: puppy land sounds kewl..as long as you are enjoying, that's all that counts..

mags: any day raking and burning leaves is a tough day-lol..we got a city ordinance against burning, so the town picks 'em up-sometimes they even get to them before the wind scatters them again..so the neighbors and the red squirrel are mad at ya, eh ??..as long as Haley is not, you're good to go..

Sneakers: gotta love those red laser pointers-it's funny watching them drive cats nuts..i have one, and for a while, DJ would chase it, but i think she's outgrown it now..the last few times i tried it on her, she just looked at it..i think Rocky is wise ; )

have a great Wednesday 2s and 4s..

My roommate got a red laser pointer and he decided to see how the critters react to it.

Rocky watches the spot of light dance around but he doesn't try to chase it.

We haven't been able to try it on Tiger because he's a baby cat and babies spend a lot of time sleeping. We'll wait for him to wake up, then he's usually running around wild and crazy.

Sneakers:

when my inspector was eyeballing my house as we were building it, he never liked anything, and we even had a round or two from time to time, but when he came for the final inspection, he shook my hand, told me i had a great house, and gave me a final inspection of 99..i found out a coupla years later from his brother that my house was the only 99 he had ever graded-everything else was 98 or below-true or false, i dunno, but i was happy..

if your inspector is harping about the breaker box, i would definitely upgrade to the highest type i could afford-one big enough to add extra breakers in the future..my house is 28 years old now, and i still have enough space for one large breaker or two smaller ones..

poor Rocky-has to hide under the bed now ; (

that's funny - Tiger taking over your keyboard-lol..at least you could fix the damage ; )

have a great Tuesday 2s & 4s..

Latest on the house:

The home inspector sent his report early Sunday afternoon.

He found little nits nearly everywhere, but he had nothing good to say about the breaker box. Figure it's going to take a replacement and we will need an electrician to do it. I guess that's what we get for buying a house where they say "priced low, needs improvements." It was a good bit below my maximum price range.

Rocky is hiding somewhere like usual. He used to chill behind the sofa but he's taken to under the bed in the guest bedroom now that there's one.

Tiger recently spent his time meowing at the guest bedroom door. I'd say "Come here, Tiger!" and he'd do just that. He wanted to get on my computer. Last night, he changed the name of "Macintosh HD" to gibberish. It took me a bit to figure out what was wrong. It was easy to fix: all I had to do was rename it back to what it was.

Beautiful evening and nothing better to do than sit on opposite sides of the kennel with the wife and two 13 week old Malamute puppies going about 25 lbs each and having them run back and forth jumping on each of us for about a half hour. Incoming, so much fun.

Hello penske so nice to hear from you! Try looking on ebay in the pet section they have all kinds of outfits for cats and dogs. We had to buy little Haley a new snowsuit as our winters get so cold here and she still wants to goo out . I have a friend that trained her little dog to go in a cat litter container for such cold days but Haley did not like it. Hope you have a good day on Monday, don't work too hard!:)...Hi 10k good to hear that your pup is feeling his oats and running you a little ragged! All Haley likes to do lately is run full out in a wide circle all I have to do is stand still with her leash in air above my head and she gets wild I tell, maybe she's trying to stay warm snicker snicker! She does snuggle good at night perfect back warmer but she does tend to hog the bed, if i'm not careful I could end up on the floor snicker.LOL! I have a queen size bed and I always end up on the edge, if I move she moves over until there's no place for me to go! I tell ya the things we do for our 4 legged kids lol! Stay well all of my 2 and 4 legged friends Haley is now going arf murf and then a belated arf what a hoot!:)

Good evening magpie and 10k! I would love it if I could dress up my kitties! I think they would look cute. So far it's limited to just hats.

I think Quincy would like me to leave the windows open year round. Not going to happen. They are mostly all shut.
, for the season now. Frost warning tonight. The cats both really like to lay in the open windows. I'm sure it makes for better smells. They will just have to wait until winters over unless we get some unseasonably warm weather.

Woof woof DJ and Haley! Everybody sit and behave!

howdy maggs..this wiley pup is gonna drive me nuts this winter, i fear-lol..she really luvvvvzzz cool weather-mebbe in a month or so when it gets really cold, she will huddle up to stay warm ??..i hope y'all keep the rain, cuz we sure don't need it..drowned rat eh ??-ain't it funny how our pets seem to delight in putting us out in miserable weather..49 in Milwaukee and 72 in Chi-town eh ??-i bet the peeps in Chicago laughed over that..i think we only hit 70, but we had some really nice sunshine..okies-edit is ovah ; )

DJ is still doing fine, however, tonight she insists on doing the "out and back in routine" to the limit-mebbe the only way to get her in bed is for me to go to bed also ??..hehe..

have a great Sunday 2s & 4s ; )

DJ is pounding on the door now, so i gotta go get her..

Hello 10k, well little Haley's snow suit finally showed up, and it fits like a glove. Of course she looks 10 pounds heavier with the insulation but it will keep her warm this winter. So I will take pictures and post them so you can see her in her jogging suitand her snow suit! DJ must be liking the cooler weather now, Haley is back to fighting this red squirrel that keeps coming to visit. I think that they are secretly friends and putting up a brave front snicker snicker. Hope that you all are doing well and that you all have a fantastic weekend!:)

Hello 10k, big haley won her baseball game and little Haley sends her best Murf&Arf to to DJ. It is cool and wet not good for older bones, but inside jobs needed to get finished too! So did my housework, put on 2 new door knobs and was cleaning the garage and then Haley and I laid down and took a little nap! Hello Penske nice to hear from you, at least you have a job but I hear you on extra hours you must be pooped! Hello sneakers I hope that you hear about the house soon, its always fun to plan out what you would like to change and then see it transpire! Everyone have a great evening and stay well!:)

late again, another hit and run..

Sneakers: good luck with buying your house..having pets is almost like having kids-and the vet bills can be as high or higher..i have yet to add how much i spent on Duke's last 3 years, and i'm not going to-just having him with me for 30 months after he was given 12 months, at the most, is priceless..

mags: ugh-the neighbor's leaves come into your yard ??-dang..good luck on granddaughter's baseball game..may Haley bring them good luck..DJ says "murf" back at her ; )

It's down to the surveyors, the title company, and the home inspectors now. I'm going in with another guy (AJ) who is going to live in my house in return for maintaining it. AJ says he can deal with almost anything that may be wrong except for termites, for those we'll need a professional. We went out to lunch together, we discussed the white wood cabinets in the kitchen. We're deciding what we're going to do with them, stripping and staining them to bring out the natural wood grain seems to be the frontrunner.

You have never heard Rocky when somebody comes to the door. He makes a LOT of noise, then he runs off and hides!

No loud music, that's true... Tiger plays MEOWZAK!

I don't have any human kids, but I looked up the prices for a visit to the pediatrician and it's as bad as a trip to the veterinarian. My BFF made the veterinarian appointment, I didn't. I'm going to get Rocky and Tiger going to the same vet. When I was a kid, I read something about a "wounded vet." I wanted to know if that was one that got bit by a doggie. My Mom told me that was a wounded veteran... not a wounded veterinarian! I was somewhat perplexed about the term "vet" because I knew my father was a veteran and Doc Sebolt was a veterinarian! (I don't know if Doc Sebolt was also a veteran.)

Hi 10k I really like that about the leaves blowing across the street LOL. What we need is one of those big wind machines so I can blow the neighbors on three sides leaves back at them. But then they would not have anything to complain about! So today we are not burning we have my grand-daughters baseball game to go watch. Radio tuned to the packers and eyeballs on the grand-daughter Haley! She called this morning and asked if we would bring little Haley their Mascot to the game! So we will bundle up and go and cheer the girls on haley will do her usual murf and now a barkLOL. Sneakers good luck on the house and yes Tiger and Rockey are considered your kids. Anyone who says no send them to me LOL even better they make a little noise, no allowance, no loud music some times better!

howdy Sneakers and mags..this is a definite fly-through, cuz it's after 2am, and one of us is almost aak..

sneaker: i remember those old Kansas City Athletics' days-i'm an old geezer, ya know..i also remember American League owners complaining that Kansas City was nothing more than a farm team for the Yankees-lol, especially when the Yankees traded KC for Roger Maris..and KC and the Washington Senators always fought for the cellar-lol..i even have some baseball cards with players in KC Athletics' uniforms..i thought i had one of Maris in a KC uni, but i can't find it..

mags: ye ole cut and snip eh ??..those are words you don't use around guys-hehe..just let the wind blow and see where the leaves go-we had a mini-hurricane tonight, with north wind, so i'm sure every leaf that was on her grass is now on her neighbor's grass-hehe..

have a great Sunday 2s & 4s..it's homecoming at my church-and a ton of rain is predicted-wahhhh ;(

Tiger had to go to the vet this morning. He was one congested kitty and he sounded terrible! And the poor thing started meowing terribly when the vet went to examine him.

And the latest thing on the critter front is that I'm one day into the ten-day option period on a house. It's mine unless the site survey, the title company, or the home inspection causes a problem. Four bedrooms (three finished), two full bathrooms, 2010 square feet. They say "large yard for the kids" but don't Rocky and Tiger qualify as kids?

mags: today was even better-81°, but it's about to crash again..wtg Haley-tell your mommie she needs to post a pic of you in your cute little winter outfits ; )

my mom never rakes her leaves-the NW wind always blows them across the street into the neighbors yard-snicker..and pretty much all i have is pine straw-some of it has fallen, but it's generally mid-November before it starts falling hard and fast..

DJ says "bark and murf" back to Haley..

yeah, ya kinda screamed in my ear the first time-lol..

have a great Thursday 2s and 4s..

Whoops wrong button im bad, anyways how are you and DJ doing, 73 eh right about now I'd trade places with you. The wind is just blowing the leaves all over, now we can find Haley as she prances around with a leaf in her mouth big catch of the day. snicker snicker she really ran for that leaf, once she caught it she had to do her spin around like look at me look what I got. She has her pink and grey jogging suit and its looks so funny but she gets so cold out there! Winter is definitely on the way! Well i have all the leaves on the side of the property to try and get today, even a few branches are down from these strong winds. Haley says a bark and murf to DJ! Take care my friend and don't do anything I would not do snicker ha!

Hello to all you 2 and 4 legged friends, 10k it was actually nice today 64 with a slight breeze but the sun was shinning all day long! I raked the leaves in back, mowed the grass so I can see what Haley is doing out there! Burn't leaves and then the pine, it smell ed so great out in the back yard it is green so every one in the neighborhood that walked by said how great it smelled here! I'm a little sore and Mom says I smell like smoke so I have to go get cleaned up. Haley says bark and murf to you all May god keep you All Safe have a great Wednesday!:)

mags: woohoo-congrats to Haley for at least one bark-lol..yeah, it got cool down here, so i figured y'all were at least 10-20 degrees cooler than we were..my centipede was not cut Saturday, and after the 9th uncut day-today, it's definitely time to park the mower for the season ; ) i will agree with ya on the pine, it may burn too fast to heat with, but it burns hot, and when it's green, it has that sweet pine tar smell to it..

rick: ugh dude-oral surgery is never fun..good luck on that rough road-i wish you well..DJ says "woof, arf, woof" back to Jennie (she's trying to show off)..hope Jennie is still doing well..

have a great Tuesday 2s & 4s..

Hi Gang, sorry but this is one of 10k's blow bys! lol Sorry for not being around for awhile. I had to have some oral surgery and its been a rough road.
So sorry for your loss BluWahoo! I know the pain you feel. Nice that you take care of the cats the way you and your neighbor have.

HI 10k, magpie, Penske, sneakers, and all the 4 legged buddies! Take care!

Jennie says arf, arf, to DJ, Q and Chex, Rocky, and murf to Haley! :)

mags: i think one of the best hidden secrets is that pine tree sap makes the world's strongest glue-lol..we almost had some Milwaukee weather today-it was 63° with a strong northwest wind around 20mph-it wasn't so bad out in the sun, but it was rather cool in the shade..

penske: howdy, howdy..we had a very good feeling 63° cool day today ; )

have a great Monday 2s and 4s..

Howdy to all of my 2's and 4's hope you are doing well. Okay 10k no sap on me at all its am iracle as I know its a bummer to get out. This wood will be burn't in back by the burning pit we have on at nite when its nice outside. Can't use it in the house as you are right about gumming up the chimney. Kept Haley in till I was finished and then brought her out to play in the leaf pile later. No pine sap except on my gloves, and they stuck together pretty good snicker snicker. BluWahoo I'am so sorry to hear of your loss but you are right no more pain and he's up there with the best! How good of you to help out those cats, a lot of people would just call the humane society and have them put down. A shame that some people don't take care of their animals. Ours are so very lucky but then they rescued us didn't they? Hello Penske how are you and the babies doing after your trip? Wow I bet they were happy to have mom back!May GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR BEING SUCH GOOD PARENTS!:)

That's nice oF you Blu to feed feral cats. The thing is to trap, spay and release them. Many organizations do that for a nominal cost.

Hi tiger, Rocky, DJ, and Haley. Hope you're having a nice chill afternoon like Checkers and Q. This cool weather has put everyone in a very sleepy mood. I love it!

Magpie, Sneakers, and 10k - Howdy!!

BluWahoo: so sorry to hear Spike has crossed the Rainbow Bridge..just know he is like Duke, my black lab..he is no longer in pain, and he's playing with all the other dogs, until you get there ; )

if you can tame those feral cats, you will have instant friends for life again-good for you feeding them, and for your neighbor building a tall house for them ; )

have a great Sunday 2s & 4s..

Hello Everyone !

Just a short note to let all of you know that my dog Spike left us on September 12. He is resting peacefully now without pain and hinderance from walking and standing to eat. Several feral cats have appeared since Spike is no longer in the backyard. I picked up some Friskies tonight to give them. My neighbor built a tall house for them. I'm looking forward to spending some time with those that want the attention.

Have a great weekend everybuddy. Have fun with your pets and enjoy them as much as possible.
