Sneakers: poor Rocky-he's been replaced as King by a puppy ;(
heyyyy, as long as Tiger grooms your beard, you don't hafta, right ??..let's get gross here-mebbe he's after the buggers in your nose ??-lol..i think all cats luv the toilet seat game..

mags: i guess at 12 below Haley does need a snowsuit and a sweatsuit-lol..speaking of the cold, our numbers are pitiful compared to yours, but Wednesday afternoon, we set a record for the coldest high temp-it was 37°, and the old record was 38° (our normal low for Wednesday was 38°), and Thursday morning, we set a record for the lowest temp at 19°, the old record was 20°, and both old records were set in the same year-1903..that was a longgggg time to hold a temp record-111 years..hope you and Haley stay warm and ride out this cold front..weatherdude here says there are signs that we may pull outta this beginning on Saturday, even though the temps will stay below the normals, which are 60/37 tomorrow..

have a great Friday 2s and 4s, and owners ; )

Tiger has been making a major nuisance of himself today. He keeps jumping on the toilet lid when I'm trying to lift it. But right now he's purring and grooming himself. He's also grooming me, he likes my beard. I don't know why he bites my nose but he does.

Hello fellow animal lovers, my best to you all! Well little Haley had to wear her snowsuit today makes her look like a line backer. It is now 12 below and the way it sounds like every one is getting their share of old man winter early. But any day we can put one foot in front of the other is still a good day! Happiness to all have a great night!:)

My BFF realized that "Blanca" means "white" in Spanish. Blanca had her name changed to "Rita."

Rita, Rocky, the BFF, and the BFF's BF are over at the house. Tiger and I are holding down the apartment.

Tiger is sunning himself. When I called Mom this morning, Tiger was biting me. Mom said "Not a very good pet." Tiger needed some more kitten food and he ate it with gusto.

Blanca was nuzzling my toes last night and kind of biting at them.

Tiger has been napping for a while now, He just got up and stretched himself, then he switched sides.

Haven't been over to see Blanca or Rocky today, they are staying over at the house. I'm not moving over until after the painting is done. Need to get some boxes to pack in, the only place it seems you can find free boxes anymore is at the liquor store and liquor stores are only open Monday-Saturday 10-9 in Texas.

Texas car dealers are only open six days a week, but the dealership gets to decide which day of the week they are closed. So, in Houston, about half of them are open Saturday and the other half is open Sunday. I like having the car dealers closed one day a week so you can visit the lot without the salesmen helping you. When I bought my Corolla a number of years ago, I wandered the lot Saturday and wrote down the stock numbers for a couple of vehicles I liked. IIRC, I went to the early service and then went car shopping. Got to drive home with a new Toyota for a late lunch.

Well what a rude awakening, about an 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches of snow! Well Little Haley had to go and I didn't do my duty to early, Boy did I get a look, even the whites of her eyes sigh im bad! LOL. So I snow plowed the driveway and the patio and the front porch while she watched, and made sure the car and truck were cleaned off too. And then we took a nap! Our big day was over by lunch time snicker snicker. We are now watching the packers, she does not care she just wants a warm lap, whoops I moved and yelled at the T.V. another dog look with the whites of her eyes. I think I'm in the dog house, its snowing again, I must have ticked some one off up there! Hello and have a great evening to all 2's and 4's!

AJ bought a German Shepherd puppy. My BFF proposed naming her "Blanca" and we agreed. Now, I look it up and discover she named a nearly totally black dog "white" in Spanish!

Bianca was hungry, she devoured two cans of dog food and then laid down for a nap.

She will lick you and she'll play, but she has sharp teeth.

Rocky growled when Bianca got a bit too close to his food.

Greetings all! Q and Chex are excited to see bird feeders up again. So nice of me to provide them with hours of entertainment watching birds and squirrels all day.

We had our first snow this past week. It is still lingering in spots.

Sneakers- I love to have my boys lick me. Quincy licks with the lightest touch across my face. But checkers' tounge is brutal. He obviously has no idea how coarse it is. Good luck with that poppa kitty!

I am not a Texas native, but I came as soon as I could. I figure that if women can run around wearing dresses and skirts in the cold, I can wear shorts. On the other hand, I do have a nice warm hoodie to keep my top half toasty.

I was busy taking blue painters' tape, scrubber sponges, and three cans of primer to the painters. The painters (AJ, his son, and whoever they can get in the coalition of the willing) have my room mostly done, we're painting it a blue that matches the Nikes I was wearing today. Rocky was ready to see me today, he was licking me. The painters are going to paint my home office in the same color. We're discussing where the TVs will go. I commented that I wanted mine in my home office instead of my bedroom.

Tiger has been in the apartment all day. I have to put him in the bathroom and close the door when I eat or he will climb up and help me. I left him in the bathroom for a while after supper, forgot about him because he wasn't meowing. Tiger can keep himself amused by chasing bottle caps around and when he's doing that he doesn't meow.

TIger was going nuts about thirty minutes ago, but now that he's gotten tired he's grooming himself.

mags: i ain't warm, but i'm dressed warm-lol..the cold front moved in last night, and tonight it's really settling in..we could have record lows both tomorrow and Saturday..DJ is loving it-running wild out there..i wore my shorts yesterday but as the temp fell, my knobby knees did too, so i think mine are packed away also..we will have a few renegade warm days, but not enough to keep winter and summer clothes out..lol on shoveling out Haley's bathroom-this morning i scooped the poop from all over the yard with my trusty pooper shovel-lol..some of that stuff did not come outta DJ's bowels-dang deer and other wild varmints..stay well and warm also..

Sneakers: ahhh yeahhhh, nuttin' like your own humble abode is there ??..well, on Dec 21st anyway..so Rocky, AJ, and your BFF have moved in and you're tying down the apartment with Tiger, eh..air mattress eh ??-my bones are too old for that..i presume you and Tiger have the bed ??..i bet that concrete patio felt better to Rocky than carpet burns-lol..hopefully things will fall into place day by day, so the Dec. 21st transition is as smooth as silk..

have a great Friday 2s & 4s..

I finally put away the shorts and broke down and took my winter coat out of storage sigh its not my favorite time of the year! But it does provide rest from yard work.

I've been a homeowner now for a week... seems like time flies!

Current status is that AJ and my BFF are sleeping in the house at night on an air mattress. Rocky is over there all the time.

Tiger and I are holding down things at the apartment, which we have until December 21st to get out.

One night, Rocky scratched his belly on the concrete patio. So he's not limited to carpet by any means.

The first night Rocky stayed over, we realized that we didn't have any dog food. So, AJ picked up some Kibbles 'n Bits. Rocky devoured them! We also had to improvise for a water dish, Rocky got to drink out of a plastic dish from delivery Italian food.

Hello to all my 2 and 4 legged friends!:) Haley did her best to cheer up some vets. We were out shopping and there were a couple of the guys out selling, One gentleman saluted her and cracked up. They were both kind and very gentle men, talked for a few minutes and we wished them a Happy Veterans Day. Haley gives her best b-murf and arf she gets confused, but she tries hard! Well 10k at least your not in South Dakota, wow 24 below that's a terrible thought. We had a very grey day with temps around low 30's, Haley wore her snowsuit on. The yard looks lonely npw everything picked up and put away, flower pots all gone and the vegi garden empty. Well I have plenty of time to plan for next spring and summer. Now I have a list of things to do inside, just when I thought that my work days were over! Snicker snicker first on the list is to dig up the tile in the main entrance by the front-door. And then a new hanging fan in the dinning area its dying. Sigh it never ends!

A big hello to Penske, sneakers and 10k and also ABCD always good to hear from you all. Well Haley and I had to much water and we were up at 3:30 and low and behold it was a blizzard out there! Poor Haley she was stunned for a few minutes, then she ran out to the middle of the yard and opened her mouth like she was catching the snow LOL she gave a few hops and did her thing and raced for the door. So sneakers you'll have to be a little quicker with your little tiger she sounds like she is very fast, ans a little bit of a little devil LOL Don't worry she will settle down as she gets a little older! Penske I had a little Pom she use to do the same thing she was our tiny dancer with a mess behind her, I always knew if it was quite she was in the kitchen playing in her water bowl( a good memory). Hi 10k hope this finds you in good form, glad that DJ likes the cooler weather that helps a lot when they need to go out. I always shovel out a circle for her so she can find a good spot! Of course then I have to go out and get her so she does not freeze up out there LOL. ABCD I hope you join us with stories of our little loved one's, I surely hope you all 2's & 4's have a peaceful Sunday!

Howdy!

>naughty Tiger..can he get into the street when he bails out ??

He seems to realize he's lost about the time he reaches the apartment-side edge of the parking lot with all the cars. Then, he turns tail and heads back up the stairs meowing. Last hime he got out, my BFF left the front door open and a couple of minutes later here comes Tiger. Fortunately, Rocky wasn't in the mood to go out (which he usually is when he needs to go to the bathroom).

Good morning my furry friends and their people! I must admit I have some peculiar cats! I don't get Checkers at all! He was upstairs in the bathroom just now and you can hear him in his water dish, "digging". Water slopping everywhere, making a huge mess, then he ran downstairs and did the same thing in the kitchen water dishes. Then he comes to me with his two wet feet and wants to touch the ipad! I think not!! His legs are soggy about an inch and a half up. He was probably standing in those dishes and digging , and slashing in there. Nutty cat!

Well at least our old Governor got voted out. I was pretty sure it would have happened. Hopefully we won't regret it.

Magpie, I bet Haley looks cute in her snow suit jacket. My kitties don't go out side but I have seen all the apparel you can get for pets. I really like the rain boots for dogs!

10k - Why are we awake? I think the boys have settled down now and I can get some more sleep.

Sneakers - all kittens are very naughty. It's what makes them cute! Thank goodness tiger comes back.once he gets fixed, the desire to take off should go away.

Hi ABCD! I will have to check out your pictures. Hang out with us for a whole! And welcome!

howdy mags..

it's 1:30am-sigh..

i guess if Haley has never seen a winter, she is traveling fast in that wind-lol..gotta be a funny sight just watching her..DJ doesn't seem to be affected by the cold, but our really cold air is probably 45 days away..the weatherdude does say by this Thursday, we will see a week's worth of 40s, and lows in the 20s-brrrr..

have a great Sunday 2s and 4s..

Howy10k, ABCD I love your pictures of your spoiled babies they are beautiful! So 10k sounds like DJ is smart. Goofy little haley runs to the door until she gets out there and its too cold or wet out then she races back to the door! I didn't think that the wind could carry her off but a good cold blast makes her move pretty fast. She hops up her hind legs and spins like she is thinking that someone or something is sneaking up on her! Camera is ready and at the back door so nothing will be missed LOL. Hi pensky I hope this finds you and the cats doing well if you have a chance on e-bay on the site for pets accessories you can find all kinds of outfits for cat and dogs. Even winter boots and coats. Stay well my friends and give hugs to all of your 4 legged buddies!

howdy ABCD1, Sneakers, mags..

ABCD1: i presume by your avatar that Miss "T" Marie and brother Dusty are doggies ??..of course they are spoiled-that's why we are here..lol..

Sneakers: naughty Tiger..can he get into the street when he bails out ??..i guess the last time he got out, he got lonely and scared, and came back home, mebbe ??..

mags: my camera is always ready for takeoff-as long as i have fresh batteries in it-lol..so poor little Haley nearly took off with the wind, eh ??..i bet she is a fun sight..the wind was roaring through here so hard last night that DJ heard it when i opened the door for her, and she refused to go out..it got cold fast after that wind started blowing..it did get to 59° today, but we had an awful wind blowing for most of the day..DJ doesn't care much for the wind, but she seems to like the cold, as long as the sun is shining-she always seems to find her a sunny spot to stay warm..

have a great Saturday 2s and 4s..

Tiger has been very naughty running out the front door when we open it. We have had to hunt him down at least three times. Although last time he came back up the stairs meowing.

Hi there 10k the camera is ready for take off, and poor little Haley almost did with the wind too snicker snicker. Every day is new to her and she is definitely a hoot to watch. It is cool in the 40's and drizzly today but I did see the sun out a few times. How is your black lab Duke liking the cooler weather? Well I have to run its getting late and the baby needs to go out, gosh it was just a long day out there today!

mags: lol on your governor..i thought he was one of the good guys ??..yup, the elections here were surprising, but great..

you best git that camera all charged and stuff, cuz we wanna see Haley in the snow, in her snowsuit..poor Haley-hit by the winter wind..it was 69° here early this afternoon, but once the sun went down, the rain hit, the wind hit, and it got cold fast..

it's not gonna be in the 40s, but by Saturday, it will be in the mid 50s..it looks as though a beach trip could be postponed again Saturday-wahhhhh-low 50s and gale winds down there ; (

have a great Friday 2s and 4s..

Its enough to make you wanna take up drinking I tell Ya, our governor got in again. What is wrong with this country when they keep voting the same crooks back in office? Well another 4 years maybe next time they will get it right! Hi there 10k you sound in great spirits so I'm guessing your voting day went well! I didn't have the camera out and charged up, I'am ready now and watching outside! Well Haley had to wear her snowsuit and the wind hit her the back end and boy did she jump and spun around like she was looking for someone to be behind her! It was in the low 40's but the wind made it feel like it was in the 30's! Hope this finds you and your 4 legged buddies well this evening.

Hello to all of the 2's and 4's! Sorry I have been gone for a while both om and I have been under the weather here. I think I just pushed myself too hard here trying to get the yard work finished. But the Yard does look beautiful and it looks like a park. Just have to fill in some sparse places. Well little Haley has encountered her first deer, not such a good reaction turns out that they are a lot bigger then her and all she could do is stare, especially when the buck came out. What a crack up she ran for the back door and growled then murf and arf and flew off of the back porch and growled at this little rabbit more her size I guess. The funny thing was the buck and the doe just stared at her like they couldn't believe their eyes either. It was a sight to see and yet it was beautiful to see the buck and doe in our yard! Penske I hear you on the work, I had over 20 years at Briggs and Stratton and we usually took all the over time that we could, they would ask for volunteers for Christmas but the rest of us always had off. I hope that it works out for you this way it makes it a nicer holiday!.. Did my duty besides the idiot we had wasn't doing anything for us Ladies here in WIS. so its time to get rid of him, every thing we have been fighting for has been taken away or now is limited so time to get him out I hope! May you all be doing well and staying warm its almost here we have hit the forties and have even had one morning of snow Yuck! God Bless you all!

Howdy all! I voted 10k. The current PA Gov hasn't done one thing, the four years he's been in. Time to get him out!! Still going full tilt at work. It's so nice to be saving money again! Some departments will be working 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. We don't even know if we'll be off at Christmas. Usually we have 10 days off. I think that's why the big push now, so we can still be off at Christmas.

Kitties are fine. Checkers has started to eat the dental kibble so maybe his stinky breath will improve.

I am going to start trying to get them to sit together for Christmas card pictures. That should be a using!

Everybody be good, Rick it's good to see you here again.

Hi, bus...I hate cold temps too, and I am originally from upstate NY. You had to love snow and cold there. It's a fact of life!

Magpie and Sneakers - Be good, enjoy life and love your 4 footed friends!
