Good morning!!

OM!   Marco reminds me of a dog I had when I was a kid.  That dog was totally devoted to me and never left my side. 

And yellow tiger striped cats are one of my favorites along with tortoise shells.

They are beautiful, and they all match, like a coordinated set!  Are the cats' owners still taking care of them as to vet bills, etc.?  Or have they essentially become "your" cats?  :-)     ,  >^,,^<

Your dog has such a sweet, sweet little face.  So cute.

Good morning,

It is a beautiful day out here today, back to seasonal temperatures.  We were stuck on 90 degrees with humidity over the weekend.  Whew , too hot for me!

Thank you Linda, EllaCat, Dianne, and Lad on tour, Marcia, Em, and everyone else who pick up my day when I get tired.  REALLY MEAN IT, THANK YOU.

mrs Path Finder.. How are the apple pies coming. I just pulled a dozen muffins out of my oven.  New recipe, pineapple with sour cream and cream cheese in the mix.   Hey, this does not need to be in bold print. I could not wait any longer, barely cool enough to eat, I can tell you that they taste good. 

My neighbour  couple just dropped off a nice big potted mum. they are so nice,  He was my school principal for grade 7 and 8. The 6 oclock news is full of nasty things but there are a lot of wonderful people in the world.

I better get going outside.  Two new cats are in the barn and I am sure that they await for me and the cat food that will follow.

Have a good day everyone. jb

 

 

Ellaangel, if you are here, did you see what jb just renamed you here?!??!!   EllaCat.  I love it!  LOL!!

We have an orange cat and he is psychotic-truly crazy! He's cool looking though.

England was cool but I liked Italy so much more. Those are the only two places I've visited.

Nice cat LAD.  He is cool looking. 

I love the looks on you and your son's faces on a few posts back.  Funny.

Wow, lots of beautiful pics to see!  LAD, such nice pics of your trip to Europe, I've never been........always wanted to go to Ireland.

Love your kitty pics too, such a pretty belly on that kitty, I just want to tickle it, although, I know that would be a "no-no."

Jb - I just love Marco, I am sorry he gets no respect from those kitties, but he must understand, they mean no harm, they are just being "kitties."

and born without much human contact makes them even more adverse to doggies, I believe.  You know, I must defend those kitties or "Ella-cat" would be cross with me......

Yes, I do love the name "Ellacat!"  :-D

Marcia:  Yes, doesn't it often help immensely when learning even one new little bit of information about something that can make a big difference.     Also, your kitty sounds so funny--and cute  Sounds like this kitty took a tip from the kitty you used to have who you said had trained you well.  >^,,^<

Hi, Em. It's always so nice when you stop by with your cheery Irish greetings.  -)  It would be  fun to see any pictures you may have that can be sent electronically of where you live in Ireland.  Did you ever watch the series on public television that took place in Ireland?  It kind of centered around the pub in town. I loved watching it and hearing the accent and seeing the lovely countryside in which it was filmed.  Can't remember the name of it...

Ginger Muffet, I'm so glad that you and Frederick Edward and your son made it okay to our mother country.  How long will you be there?  Be sure to keep us up on the things you see and do!  I dream of being able to visit England and go to one of the little country tearooms and walk down some country lanes and stop and talk with the folks who live in the small towns... So quaint.

Good morning everyone.

Hi Em, yes, all is well here. VV busy. Weekend activities, getting ready for winter, family stuff, cleaning up the garden,  dogs and cats  ah. the list goes on my friend.

Hello Dianne. Yes. Marco has many looks in his eyes. He is a character.  

I am happy to report that he is pushing back against the cats.  He has a new voice, a very excited bark. That means he has the cats holed up under the car and he is running circles around the car keeping them penned in.  He also gets very excited when a cat finds itself inside of the chicken run.

I saw the fox running through the horse field yesterday.  The Sly Red  Fox is not welcome around the chickens.

I am very sorry about the shooting in Vegas. It is beyond my little mind how anyone could do that in such a cold manner with no respect to the  laws of society and the morals of human civilization. 

I want to thank each and everyone who post or read this thread.  You have been good friends to me over the years. 

Have good days today, be brave, be safe, and enjoy your day.

All the best to you all ...jb. , group hug!

That's so cute about Marco finding himself as to the kitties!  :-)   That was fast, too!

We sometimes hear foxes here, jb.  It's a blood-chilling sound.  But I just love foxes other than that.  Have you heard of or seen the very little ones that have a strange name?  They apparently make nice little pets.  I just remembered the name: "Fennec" foxes.  Adorable.

jb, so glad to hear Marco found his voice and has the cats cornered. I hope he lets them out long enough to get to the barn so they can get back to the business of killing mice.

I am dealing with a second UTI in three weeks. I am allergic to so many antibiotics. I'm being referred to an Infectious Disease Specialist. I'm still happy though.

Hello Everyone.  I'm just here for the group hug. :)

 

Dianne-I hope the specialist has a solution for your UTI's.   I love your positive personality.   Even in trying times you have a grateful heart and I'm trying to learn from you.  

Jb-I found a Canadian penny in my purse.  It makes me think of you every time I see it. It's not perfectly round though.  I'm sure I've seen them before but I didn't remember that feature.

Speaking of hugs...

So my fingers got "stuck "'today while typing and I just started crying. My youngest son came over hugged me and kissed me on the head and just held me until I said I was ok. Hugs all around today!

I love that LAD.  You're a very lucky Mom.

My fingers get stuck too. 

Thanks. I do hate when my boys see PD getting to me. I did have my sister who is. Physical therapist tell me to dangle my hands down my sides to release my fingers ... It works!

Good morning everyone, 

Nobody makes lemonade out of lemons like Dianne does.  Bless you Dianne and I hope you are feeling better. 

LAD, your family loves you well.  Your sons sound wonderful and it must be a very nice feeling to have them attentive to your moments when you need a hug.

Peace, that is nice that you can look at that less than perfect un round Canadian  penny and think of me!!  What did you do to that poor penny?.You didn't put it on the train tracks and saw it get squarshed did you?  I'm just joking of course.  That is a cute story you shared.  I am sure that it was in good shape when it left the mint and Canada. It is still worth one cent Peace but in Canada, pennies are out of circulation and transactions involving cash are rounded up or down to the nearest nickel.  It isn't a 1958 penny is it?  Probably it has maple leaves on the one side and the queen on the other..   The bank still takes them back at face value but they have to be rolled up.       Oh Unround Penny, what roads have you travelled?  It may of fallen from a pocket of a Canadian tourist who travelled to Nashville to see Reba in concert.  Some kid picked it up and had enough to buy some penny candy.  When the clerk counted the change that night and made up the days deposit, he realized that he didn't have enough money to pay the wholesaler next day as promised. In despair and needing dental work done on his aging and sometimes achy teeth, he saw that there was an odd Canadian penny in his hand and he threw it in disgust out the door where it rolled to the gutter.,  I shouldn't have done that he sighed, every penny counts these days. Out the door he walked to pick up that strange Canadian penny .  Why do I bother he wondered as he searched the dirt for that coin. Just then a blast erupted and the ancient gas fired gum drop candy oven blew up. Wow, I had been sitting right beside that  old machine before I came looking for you and he picked up the coin from the dust as the sound of fire engines came to his ears.  That strange Canadian penny was all that was left of that days receipts he realized.  But the next day the insurance agent appeared and gave him a huge cheque to cover the loss of his business which in fact was over insured for some reason for three times what it should of been worth. Also it had been a money losing venture everyone of the 15 years he operated it.  As fate would have it, the burnt out site was now vacant and two months later he put another huge cheque,  signed by a Canadian lady named Twain,  in his pocket for the sale of the property.  Now, with a lighter step, he packed up his car with his wife and two kids,  and said goodbye to Nashville.  He was going back to Texas,  bankrolled with his insurance settlement, the property sale money and deep in his pocket, a funny looking Canadian penny. His lucky penny! Yes, he was going to go back to Amarillo to take over his Uncles piano tuning business.  

 

I hope you all have a lucky day.

Thanks Peace, happy trails to you

jb

Hahaha what a fabulous journey that penny has taken! And now it is my turn to start a journey, not nearly as exciting but heading from Ontario to Florida so I get two thanksgivings! Be well and find a little joy in each day and keep on smiling!

How touching, LAD...  So very, very sweet.  It's so nice to see you have such a close and loving family.

I couldn't agree more, EllaCat.  :-) 

jb, perhaps one reason you've been blessed with such a creative mind is for writing to become of more importance and enjoyment in your life in the years ahead   You could probably become a best seller, and I don't say that lightly. 

Right, group?!?!!??  

Group hug to jb from all of us.
