Frozen,

Saw on the News today about the Maine lobster man who caught the candy lobster. The colors of that lobster are phenomenal. So glad it's not going to wind up on someone's dinner plate. Nature is so cool

66* and sunny. Will be having 70’s and 80’s days but, our saving feature for weather is 50* nights, good for sleeping.

 

@n566192l 

 

Will attempt a call perhaps on Monday, awaiting my talking voice to return. Only communications I’ve had for last 2-3 weeks have been texts or emails. Breathing has been a bugger, breathe ribs move😡.

 

If you could get past typing with thumbs🤣, it’s easier than speaking at times. Besides when  in spotty areas for cell reception (speaking) texts do generally go out.😇

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

For walks in the woods, if nervous buy a can of bear spray, and a whistle (legal in all 50 states and Canada) But, must be labeled as “Bear spray”.$40 or less.

 

I like the bears up here, they leave when they smell/ hear/see  you or dogs coming. Or vice versa. Unless they have cubs then it’s a whole nother ballgame.

 

When hunting season comes, suggest bright “Orange vests, gloves and hats for you. Vests for dogs” No pink only orange, not dressing for fashion but, survival.

 

Have had more than few people mistaken for deer, because they were wearing white mittens and hanging clothes on the line. Amazes me Everytime a flatlander or someone from away (out of stater) shoots a dog, cat, cow, horse or person because they saw movement and didn’t wait to see what moved.🤬

 

There’s a word that springs to mind when that happens.

@n566192l, thanks for the offer of cat goodies.  I sent you a PM for more info.  No prob with forgetting my name.  I forget names, even without meds!  Woman Very Happy

 

@LaDolceVita, are those black bear sightings?  They are generally not aggressive, except they get more wary with their kids in tow.  They don't like loud noises, so screaming may be a good thing.  I like to sing when hiking and I spot a bear, but then, I scare all wildlife and other hikers away.

Greetings,

I did send out the orange vests I have with boxes. I think I forget to give people tracking numbers. UPS said delivery should be there Tuesday. Frozen, just waiting to hear back from you about the different types of coffee.  Sorry, medication. But, I do keep my word.  Nancy

Doing penance here in the southeast for living in Camelot during much of the year.   This is the weather I love to hate, the HHH!   It simply does not feel good to go outside.  Six more days of it but the weather folks trick you this time of year and a heat wave usually lasts longer than they initially let on.

 

Two bear sightings reported near the homestead by our friendly neighbor.  I do not know the time frame.  Makes me rethink those walks in the wood with the dogs.  I do not think bears respect the orange & yellow vests that the dogs will be wearing or the bright pink one that I am planning to wear.    If I see a snake I usually scream & run.  I dont think that is a good idea with a bear.   Smiley Embarassed:  Smiley Embarassed   I like to think that I am a country girl but I guess I am just a wannabe. 

 

@n566192l  hopefully you will be your old self soon.

Hi, Everyone,

Oh, what a beautiful morning! It was 64 earlier with no sign of humidity, going to around 85 later. Went to sleep with bedroom windows wide open and a sheet and light blanket. Woke in the middle of the night to pull up the comforter! WOW! How refreshing!

The sun is shining brightly and the goldfinches are munching on the coneflower seeds. Wish I could snap a photo, but they are too fast for me and fly as soon as the door opens.

Tonight is dinner and game night for me so I’m looking forward to that. Hope everyone can enjoy a good weekend, N.

Yep, I would be the one with Kitty Kamp and the assorted kitty huts and igloos.  Was just out brushing two of the little darlings. 

 

Now I've got my little indoor compatriot proofreading as I type. 

lkjsef0329(*)Hdwoq)#**^%  (Doesn't alway work out too well.)

 

Maybe we'll have a little party later in honor of International Cat Day, complete with t-r-e-a-t-s.  Ah yes, they know that word.

@n566192l 

 

Best guess for feral cat igloos here, would be @MsStretch.

 

@catwoman500 

 

Best guess for AARP games working is you got an update for Java to your computer.

 

I generally leave mine off, but, sometimes allow it to run when needed for watching TV channels or some games, by internet.
