  1. My goodness this is early to be sitting in the airport waiting to board!
  2. Linus was totally easy to get into his carrier. I got it zipped up with no trouble at all. ๐Ÿฅฐ. When we got there the gal behind the counter says "ooh! It's Linus" ith a big beaming smile.
  3. Miss RE Carol, I'll admit that the constant cancellations had me wondering if that surgeon drinks and some days isn't able to operate. That'd explain the short/no notice. Pretty much all packed. I get to insert Linus into his carrier by myself ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ tomorrow. Now that I could probably sell tickets to!
  4. Oh look! A real toilet--how clever. What's behind the white gauze curtains in the kitchen? I'm guessing pantry shelves. Amirite?
  5. Yes, Mr Patsy and I are both visiting. Since the guest room is now the former guest room we will be staying in a hotel and have a rental car. Very different but life goes on. I'm getting excited. Meetup will be Friday evening. Wot to wear? Wot to wear? Linus will have The Window Suite again at his resort/sleep away camp. They love having him since "he's so friendly".
  6. You never know when you might need a bathroom with only a urinal. OMG!!!!!
  7. Happy Anniversary to Kathy and Jim! I have always loved the story of how you met. Linus is about to become suspicious since the boggs on wheels are about to come down from the attic for the trip to Maryland and Kestralyn & family that begins 5:44 am on Monday ๐Ÿ™€
  8. Nice article, Ducky. Sorry the migrations are running up against folks proudly holding their sign. That house! I went back to check out the stairs and realized once again not only is it stuffed with kitsch but everything is spotty/busy. The carpets. The drapes. Even the floor of the kinda deck. AARGH
  9. Not a rash but the screaming meemies!!! OMG all the kitsch. Talk about an attack of the cutesies. ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿคฎ. Aarghhh Miss Jennie, how was your ceremonial first (small) bowl of pockkorn on Sunday?
  10. Oops. That's May's knot Ray's. I'm sure the crabs are great but I'm all about the fried clams. Congrats Laila--we have a "media personality" in our midst.
  11. Outside windows done! Giving myself a little crash before washing the combos so they can go back in before condensation can ruin my beautiful clean windows. Warning to anyone reading Dune before this version comes out on the screen. The history of adaptations of Dune is somewhere between excrable and miserable. If you enjoyed the book I'd suggest running far far away. Yes, there will be a dinner at Isabella's with Kathy and Jim and Guest and Dr David. Week from this coming Friday but who's counting right? ๐Ÿฅณ. Hoping there will be a lunch at Rays with Guest and Kestralyn if Guest is available in town and can get away from those nasty folks who seem to work her 24/7. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™„
  12. Molly you are out and out gorgeous! The Brush Pile from Hell is gone! Thanks mostly to the invaluable help of a young able bodied friend all the hauls to the disposal station have been made, brush cut to appropriate size of course. I may never move again but oh well. I'm thinking that today will be our last 71 degrees day in months and months (tomorrow's high will be 49) and therefore it is wash the outside windows day. ๐Ÿฅบ First however I'm off to give blood. I'm getting ready for next week's trip to Maryland. Haven't seen the grandkids in the fur in 29 months and have never seen the two month old. Should be fun tho. Very different since DH and I are going together and we'll be staying in a motel since the guest room is no longer. Rays crab shack here I come! ๐Ÿคช
  13. Flizzie, Linus (aka The Toothless Wonder) sez toofers are a vastly overrated commodity. Milk it for all it's worth.
  14. Something about wanting to avoid the unemployment line I suspect! ๐ŸฅบHolding all good thots for Flizzie and being in awe of Merc's ability to lie in precisely the most trafficked spots.
  15. Oh that's funny. Bet elebenty hounds can make quite the ruckus.
  16. Well the initial hacking and slaying is done and we're flattened and a hey so the remaining work will happen tomorrow. Work with electric saw and clippers and hedgemtrimmers finally morphed into chain saw with DH muttering about why didn't he think of that in the beginning. A foot or six inches, wot to do, wot to do??? Speaking of wot to do, we now have a HOOGE ginormous brush pile and what's going to happen to that we haven't decided yet.
  17. Good morning all. It's going to be sunny and a high of 81 today. ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿฅฐ. Amazing. Project today is to follow thru on my decision to whack the forsythia down to about 1' and see what happens. Planted 1989, a northern version, had 12 blooms the first year and none since. It makes a marvelous visual barrier for the alley but there's lots of dead wood andandand. So I'm going to take a deep breath and whack it and sees what happens. Worse comes to worse I can always have the nursery replant. Any suggestions for a different whack-to height? Guest, did I miss what's going on with your eyes? Oops--just found it. Of course you were out of state and it was a long holiday weekend. These things never happen on a Tuesday morning for instance. Never! I can't imagine the horror of flying without being able to read let alone 7.5 hours! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
  18. Those are sandhill cranes, Nate. Hunters have to be very very careful that they are murdering a sandhill crane and not one of the very few Whooping cranes left (who often migrate with the Sandhills). Thanks for the explanation of migrating systems. Sounds as horrific as I had pictured. Sorta cosmic whack a mole?
  19. I remember a reference to the Father Al story here years ago that said two nuns were very helpful to the project. ๐Ÿฅฐ So glad Guest is back! I for one was worrying (had forgotten about the trip). WHAT is going on with your eyes? ๐Ÿ™€ Five in the afternoon on October 4th and it is 79 degrees and gorgeous out. In North Dakota!!! Rest of the week until Friday is meant to be similarly lovely and I'm savoring every moment. Happy house hunting/migrating/storage unit removing/etc etc to all.
  20. Enjoy your hamburgler, AndiPants. We blood donors are special no matter our species and we deserve our reward.
  21. Homemade sauerkraut is the bestest. My Germans from Russia mil made the world's best sauerkraut. Flu shot and booster all done. Now for lunch at the new Indian place in town. It's been a long time since the Flood of 97 when we lost our only Indian restaurant.
  22. Once again the weirdness quote fairy has been busy. Oh well. Hugs to Halise as she walks this path. I am glad Merc' loyal fans will have an opportunity to worship his wonderfulness tomorrow after a sad drought. Miss Chris, North Dakota would surely benefit from cornings too. ๐Ÿ˜‹
