ECIN He certainly doesn't LOOK like he's a handful like someone here has been saying.

I was thinking the same thing Mel - lol Wonder if she's been in the sauce when she has been posting

melbrod Joey is a handsome young man. And now I have a face to attach to the stories. He certainly doesn't LOOK like he's a handful like someone here has been saying.
Won the working breed group in the baby puppy show? Surely not in this last one given his current tender age...

Mr. B is dapper in his new duds...and a handsome in his prime fellow too. Looks like he may be getting a little tired of the picture taking in that last one.

Joey pic

From Aunt Bug:

From a baby puppy show when he was just under 6 months. He won the Working Breed group. He's Foxfire's Ready to Rumble a Toad grandson through his sire Ch Foxfire's Hudson Bay.

I am woefully deficient.

So you were the inspiration for the "Blinker Fluid" prank on YouTube?

melbrod I interrupt this love-your-cat fest to say that they get what they deserve. LOL Yesterday I had to fish Trip out of the drawer where I keep my ziploc baggies/aluminum foil/wax paper/saran wrap (no parchment paper yet) just as he was working at sliding back behind it, and the day before I had to remove him from the refrigerator AND the dishwasher. He was around to "help" me pack the Christmas ornaments and put them in the attic too.

He is fortunate that he always announces himself when he squeezes past me into some verboten place, otherwise he would be locked up and lost for hours. Actually, he has been a few times--I guess he doesn't ALWAYS say where he's going.

(And what is it about attics? Our last cat got stuck between the attic floor and the ceiling of the room below it once. I'm not sure she admitted that she was stuck, but we had to cut a hole in the attic floor to get her out. And then she did that little lick-herself thing to prove she had actually MEANT to spend half a day exploring the hidden regions of the house.)

I have a lot of pillows on my bed, including a body pillow. Sometimes my Fenris curls up so close to the body pillow that I can't see he's under the covers, and when I sit down on the bed to put my socks on, I end up sitting on him! He'll shoot out from under the covers and then give me the most indignant look, as if I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN. And of course I feel terrible (although it's not like I *really* sit on him, because I barely touch him before he's gone, but still...). Poor, abused kitties....

Now the cold blooded cat (old age for him and me--he's 17 now and I'm a lot older)--so there is a heating pad that I leave on the end of my bed--under the top blanket makes a warm spot I can stick my feet in when I go to bed--the cat (Leon) then sleeps on the heating pad (and my feet) and I can unplug the heating pad (which can't be left on all the time) and the cat sticks around on the warm spot and continues to keep my feet warm.

I can't believe I'm telling this story--it's embarrassing to both Leon and me.

LDi - The battery drill & driver market, usually goes 2 ways...DeWalt (Yellow) or Milwaukee (Red), both have pros & cons.
- if Scott has not started his 18 or 20volt collection already ?
- I would stick to Ridgid (orange case), with a Life Time guarantee (once registered on-line)
- and go with the HD ones, with a 4.0 or 5.0 Ah battery / higher end unit

If you go the DeWalt route, get the premium XR series.

And then there are all of those special little clips and connecters that you need special little tools to remove. I wanted to change a light bulb on the gear shift console so that the display that showed what gear I was in would light up (nothing like guessing in the dark whether you are shifting into reverse, neutral or drive.) Had to take apart an awful lot of the console just to get to it, using brute force in some places...a one minute job once I was there. And then I had to reassemble the thing...though not quite in the same way because of the brute force I had used to get in (it still looks fine; you'd never know the repair was done )

It's a conspiracy to make sure you have to go to the dealer and pay their trumped-up prices for repairs. And then you lose the use of your car for a couple of days--the Toyota dealer I went to (once...for a recall repair) had to have the car all day to just diagnose the problem (because their queue was so long) and then keep it all day again after the part came in so they could install it. I think the actual work was maybe 1/2 hour both days combined.

Ah, back in those good old days...not only could you see the part you wanted to work on, you actually had room to fit a tool down in there to do your work.

Yeah....that's how we're all going to be plowing roads, if the wacko "Green New Deal" is implemented which elimnates all fossil fuel usage. However for plowing, donkeys will be used, as they want to eliminate cows, also!

Your going to "ASK " her ??? Here's what you do TN -- Just walk in and say ---HEY ! Mocha and I are taking your Truck !

For you - No charge !

TN, while you're using the wife's Explorer, take Mocha to the mud puddle to let her have some fun, while you get some good pics of her for the future Dirty Dobes theme DT calendar!
You did state Mocha is attracted to mud...
(Mel will need some competition for her "Capri Wallowing in Slop" picture entry!)
