I tried to find the Family Photos thread...the advanced search engine is broken!
 
Leah may only have a few months left, as long as she can walk, to go outside to do her business, we are not compelled to kill our old dog.
 
I made her sleep in the garage when she was a pup until she was housebroken, she tore that sofa to shreds. LOL
 
 
From a couple years ago when she could still get on the bed.

I'm only kidding! DRS  I kid because I care!
 
We both know you are right, too.
 
 
Mama is back to normal sleeping hours again, we think it was some new medicine that was causing the problem.  She did a major clean up of what is her room, where her desk is, the 3rd bedroom. I moved my desk to the living room.
 
She found some great old pics of Leah when she was a pup.  I can scan them to the computer but she thinks she can take a picture of the picture.  We'll see how that turns out.
 
Scanning something is a PITA because I have a TV and other things sitting on the all-in-one printer.
I've been busy too! I took down the cloth valences that cover the top of the blinds in the living and dining room.  Washed them and reinstalled, these things are dust magnets.

Great price, though.  Order a carton and let us know how it goes.

    You have to go to service desk at our local grocery store to get cigarettes. Yes, we are still smoking! Embarrassed
     
    I should pay closer attention to what the person on the other side of the counter gives me.
    We smoke Marlboro Lights Gold, they are not allowed to call them light anymore. LOL
     
    I've heard of 100's, the length of a standard King Size cigarette is...
     
    84mm cigarettes are also known as King size cigarettes and are typically 3 - 3 1/4 inches in length. These are the most popular size cigarettes and are the size right below 100mm. The overall length of the cigarette is longer than the 70mm due to a filter that is attached on one end of the cigarette.
     
    This is what she gave me, Marlboro Gold 72's. They look like a mini Bic lighter or a 7 oz. can of beer! LOL

    How dare you not remember the details of how I acquired my pets???



    He's pretty feisty alright. Nearly took my hand off with those fangs.

    But the only cat fights I ever hear at night are outside.

    I always have a male and a female together.

    No real "fighting" with that arrangement. Maybe some playful "rasslin", but nothing serious.

    Only when you get two males together does the fur fly.

    Typical male territorialism.
    LOLLOL
    I'm almost as old as you and Thor and PaW and Sarge!
    Not only is this place my word association game...it's a good memory exercise as well.
    Much to Cranathan's chagrin. Tongue
     
    Sh*t, the list of things this site helps me with is endless.
    I hope that there wasn't (too much butt) showing in the UPMS video. I am on double secret probation.

    It's been a slow 24 hours on the forum when I have a post from yesterday still showing in  'latest posts'.
     
    We lost Escape TV (it slipped away) completely earlier today, I went over to Ion and found a pretty good show.  Burn Notice, this was the scene I saw today. LOL
     
     
    Reminds me of another movie that I ilke.

    I don't think I'd feel too good about telling everyone that "I PMS" either.

    The funniest part of the story was watching that prissy Martha Sugalski have to say it over and over again.



    I can't stand her!!!

    Ah, I get it now.  It's the "I Pee", not the "PMS" part that's upsetting them.  Buncha crybabies...  LOL

    Just saw a funny report on the news. Parents and students of a new middle school that is under construction want the proposed name and intials changed.

    The students of Innovation Park Middle School and their parents, are afraid that they will find it embarrassing to tell people that they go to IPMS.

    And you can bet the guys on the football team REALLY wouldn't want to wear jerseys with IPMS across the back!!!!

    My cat makes all kinds of strange noises, but he almost never purrs.

    I've heard him purr very faintly a handful of times, but it's rare and doesn't last very long.

    I had a flashback the other day.  I came home and Mallory, as usual, had a lot to say.  Thing is, he was "talking" in his previous voice.  Up until he was about two, he had this nice, pretty, smooth meow...and then, one day, it changed into a creakier, less pleasant "rowr".  It'd been that way for the last 13 years, so it was a bit of a shock to suddenly hear him with his earlier "childhood" voice back.  This lasted about a minute.  Then he let out a big yawn and his voice changed back to normal. 
     
    Anyway, it was nice while it lasted.  Weird, too, to hear him sound like that again.

    This guy I work with took in a stray that appeared at his girlfriends' father's sliding glass doors during Thanksgiving dinner.  It was cold and rainy and miserable out, and they were all feasting on turkey when they noticed the cat looking in longingly.  They put food and some sorta shelter outside, and when they went out later to check on him, he came right up to them.  It was like right outta that commercial (I think for cat food).  They brought him inside, and Steve (the guy I work with) took him home.
     
    Same day, one of the truckers I deal with did the same thing.  He heard us talking about the incident, and said "Hey, the same thing happened to me!"

    I have to bring my front porch cat inside when it gets too cold at night.

    She does not like it. Because she doesn't like the male cat, I have to put her in the utility room so she doesn't go hide herself away up underneath something where I can't get to her or feed her, etc.

    She brings it all on herself.
