    Re: 05 November

    Mae all -
    A hard day for me today? it occurred to me that I should make sure my apartment complex would allow me to take a senior pittie. The answer is NO. On the website is says ?Pets Welcome!? No disclaimer or asterisk or anything. But I kept clicking through the pages (I don?t care to talk to the office people in person, as you recall), and sure enough buried in some other part is a list of about 6 breeds they won?t accept? pitties being one. And the guardian has to have a Vet-written confirmation of the DNA? not even a smidge of a mixed-breed.
    My heart was utterly broken? i spent the whole weekend going through all the questions with the Rescue, talking to the foster, photographing my space and everything? i had no idea how I had fallen in love with this sweet senior (out of TX, Pie - had been used for breeding?) all I wanted to do was give her the gift of love for her remaining years. But I will reach out to my MN friends? this dog is senior, and lowkey; doesn?t like to walk far, just wants to potty and come back in, loves her crate, can be left for hours, loves snuggling. There has to be someone else out there? she has been in foster for 9 months? time for her forever home.
    Good thing I had to go to work, or I would have cried all day?
    So that?s me. It was not meant to be, I guess.
    Sending love to all -

    hiya all,how are we doing today then? hope all is good with everyone ,despite the fact that the site went down ,Dont know what happened .It hasn't stopped raining over here at all..the fields at the back are pretty flooded.Almost finished the front room ,1 job left to do but I cant do any sanding down in this weather

    hiya teegee,wow I m really sorry to hear about the rescue ,hidden in the small print eh?I know its probably not what you want to hear..but are there any other rescues available?or was it a one off.I do hope you manage to sort something out .

    hiya Slo...sounds like you had a bit of a circus with the golden locks being shorn!!did you get the dryer fixed?and the shelves up?Julies dad was ok the day after ..thanks for asking .Yes Im playing with all different settings ..there is a lady in Ottowa who has the same camera who takes fantastic pics of birds that I am in contact with .

    hiya pie ...hows you then today? well done on the pilots and paws rescue ...that sounds brilliant.glad the foster has settled down.hope the new glasses work well for you .

    hiya ppqp..how are you feeling?hope all is good .Dehydration is a belter ..you dont actually realise you are dehydrated till things start to go a bit pear shaped.Keep up the fluids .I aint that keen on drinking water,so I always put some flavouring in it .even really dilute is better than no taste .

    hiya Lav ,how are you doing?hope all is well with you.best of luck with the cataracts ,I remember my mum having them done .Nope I certainly wouldnt have been much good at home decorating ..its funny the turns life takes you ..in life I have always been outdoorsy etc ,engineer ,soldier prison officer /governor , but the creative side of me likes making things,cleaning things ,and polishing them ,writing poetry , making flower arrangements and hanging baskets ..strange isnt it ..Its just stopped raining so Im going to let the rabbits out .

    Re: 05 November

    Greetings friends,

    Overcast here but still dry. we just ran out for a quick bite to eat, wasn't in the mood for leftovers & cooking every day has gotten tiresome, Lol
    I haven't seen 3 of the kittens all day, I think they moved out without telling me. I feel sorry for the one guy left alone in the garage, might consider putting Bob out there with him overnight for company.

    PQ, glad to hear the new glasses are helpful. It's amazing what we can accomplish when we can actually see well. Keep up the hydration kick, I'm pushing myself to take in more as well.

    Slo, you had quite an exciting day with Huxley! That reminded me of the first time I took my son to the barbershop & I had to sit in the barber chair with him on my lap & try to hold his head still so he didn't have an ear cut off, geez. glad it turned into a busy but fun day for you

    Cyn, I'm sorry about the pittie, that's sad. I've known some very sweet pitbulls, they all get such a bad rap.
    sometimes work can be a good distraction when we need one. Take care

    Mick, still raining huh? hope you get a real break soon.
    Thankfully we don't have to get into the cataract thing until after the holidays. I only have two hands so I can't do all the holiday work AND nurse YB, haha. at least he's walking a good bit better at this point.

    Pie, good to see you & hope all is well with you!

    to anyone else, hello & wishing everyone a nice night!

    Re: 05 November

    MAE ALL...a very busy day with few distractions until the accountant got into an argument with me and about wanting to change an invoice. She came out with a load of blah, blah, blah and it was an outright lie. I was going to call her on it until the phone rang so I answered that instead. LOL She wasn't impressed. Aw. The call turned out to be a client changing a class booking to accommodate me. What a surprise, that put me in a good mood. When the accountant came back I said do what you want to, whatever makes it easier for you. She didn't know what to say. Haha

    Slo...nice to have Huxley at your place for a change but what a busy day you had yesterday. I just laughed at your haircut adventure, I'd forgotten about those visits. The Halloween event was a huge success according to the feedback childcare got so I was happy to do it while they dealt with the memorial. Sorry for the scare, I'll be more mindful of my wording. LOL

    Aw TG...what a hard day. I'm so sorry things turned out the way they did. I'm glad you were able to be distracted with work.

    Mick...I hope the rain lets up soon. I remember seeing some of those flooded field pictures before. I'm feeling pretty good today, actually thought to myself my energy is improving. I don't mind drinking water just have to consciously remember to do it, time goes by so fast.

    Pi...I had to look up what Pitties are. Now I know, makes sense.

    Lav...putting Bob outside for company is a great idea, wonder what he'll think about it. LOL It's funny, my co-workers have all told me they are making themselves drink more too. Maybe this was a wake up call for everyone. Glad you don't have to deal with the cataracts till the new year.

    Waves to anyone I missed. Have a good night all...PPQP

    MAE all,

    I'm fighting off a cold so gonna keep this quick for this eve so I can get my work done and head to bed early.

    TG - I'm so sorry to hear about the pittie. They definitely don't deserve the stigma or stereotype that has been given to the breed. I will cross all fingers and toes that a suitable loving forever home is found for her soon. Thank you for trying so hard.

    Hellos and waves to everyone else and catch you tomorrow (hopefully feeling better!)

    big hiya to pie sam slo and anyone else looking in ..


    I’ve just bought Pavarotti’s old camper van.
    It's a Nissan dormer.

    Started my new job at Carpetright this morning.
    Apparently, "Fancy a shag?" Isn't the best way to welcome in potential customers...

    My girlfriend just asked, "What was Jesus' full name?"
    So I dropped a bowling ball on her foot.

    So one large oil company has announced that they are going to start producing fuel from insect urine.
    I think it's BP!

    So a baby's laughter is the most beautiful sound you will ever hear.
    Unless it's 3am, you're home alone & you don't have a baby.

    Re: 05 November

    Tuesday was exhilarating watching the rescue transport unfold! There?s a flight tracking app that allows you to follow a plane in real time along its path. Pic is of pup at her destination with flight crew and new foster mom.

    PQ, this one?s for you. This insulated cup is a hydration assist; every time you empty the tumbler, you move a colorful band upward. Adds a bit of fun to the simple task of drinking water. Got mine on Amazon, but see they?re also on eBay for less.

    Re: 05 November

    Hey kids, Happy Humpday for those counting work days still

    We had a bit more sun today &it warmed up to 55 degrees, pretty nice. Nothing new happening just trying to catch up with normal stuff. had a chat with my daughter re upcoming holiday (Thanksgiving). Looks like I'm having them out here the day after so Thanksgiving will be on a Friday this year. not a big deal to me, did that often when we were both working shiftwork. Haven't figured out the son & his family situation yet, don't know what to do with them. honestly I'm beginning to hate holidays because of all the family dysfunction, ugh. Getting some stitching time in each day too to be ready for Dec.2.

    PQ, sounds like yo handled the accountant well, Lol. I was going to put Bob in the garage with the lonely kitten last night until I found that the kitten had also disappeared. they vanish in a poof, I swear it's a mystery to me. So they're all out in the big world by themselves now, hope they survive. The trap has been baited & I've stopped feeding Penny the mama cat so I hope we can relocate her soon. I've had enough with all these kittens this year.

    Wags, hope you're feeling better today, I hate colds.

    Mick, can't you pay someone to make the rain stop? Geez, that's a lot of water.
    Nice that you talked to JC, hope she is well I've never heard of the rose cuttings in a potato trick, interesting. Be sure to let us know how that works.

    Pie, that's so sweet the pup made her destination safely!! great pic too!

    Cyn, hope you're OK today, thinking of you

    Slo, was this a day off from childcare today? Hope it was a good day either way.

    Hello to anyone else popping in & wishing a nice night for all.

    Re: 05 November

    MAE ALL...it was a strange day today. I swear this time change effected everyone this time. I wanted to move some articles around in the upcoming newsletter and the publisher wouldn't allow it. I think he's still p'oed at the boss. LOL Emailed the delivery gal and asked her when we'd get our Nov newsletter since it's now the 8th and I don't have them. She emailed back and said she couldn't deliver during working hours so left them outside the front door on Saturday. What! Boss replied, at what time? He had staff in from 8:45am - 4:00pm and the building was open. Of course the publisher was cc'd on all these emails and he called me asking if he emailed me a full printable pdf version would that help. So I can print off 40 copies, I don't think so. He said oh, I thought they just didn't come early enough, didn't realize we didn't get any. He's been out of the office all morning and can't get ahold of the delivery gal. He said he would find out what's going on and I said and when you do you can call the boss.

    Wags...hope you're feeling better. I think I'm finally over mine.

    Mick...I hope the rain let's up soon, you're probably going stir crazy. Despite the newsletter mix up things were fairly calm. So glad tomorrow is my last day before the weekend, I've had enough of this week.

    Pi...wow, I bet it was exhilarating. How cool to be able to watch the flight in real time and what a great pic at the destination. You must be so pleased. Thanks for the pic of the hydration assist, I think it's a great idea. Anything that motivates me to actually drink the water will help. I'll investigate and let you know what I come up with.

    Lav...I totally get the dysfunctional family and the holidays. I felt the same way. With any luck DIL will have to work on Friday and your son and the kids can join you. I was looking forward to another "Bob" story getting him to the garage. At least the kitten isn't all alone anymore. Good luck with catching and relocating Penny, you don't need another winter of surprise visitors.

    TG...also thinking of you and hope you had a better day.

    Slo...if I remember correctly, you're babysitting Huxley on Monday's until the new year but no more of the 3 grandkids? Whatever you ended up doing today, hope you had a good one.

    Hey Sam...wondering how everything is going in your world. Hope you're getting lots of tunes in before winter settles in for good.

    Wishing all a good night....PPQP
