Yeah! We definitely got them--me maybe a little more than John since I'm a little more to the SE of central Portland and the pattern was headed SE into the mountains.

The kind of weather patterns that create these summer storms is exceedingly rare for west coasts, I've heard and read the explanation so many times I should be able to repeat it but it turns out to be fairly complex and as a result I can only remember that ALL west coasts on ALL continents is basically the same. In the north--the areas that are our Pacific Nortwest it means mild winters and relatively coolish summers with big winter storms rolling in from the West. In the south--for this continent it's most of the state of California it creates climate that is always described as "Mediterranian"--clear, dry summers with brief torrential rain in the winter months.

Big electrical storms accompanied by rain (or sometimes not) are common to the central areas of the continent. But really uncommon on the west coast.

We're supposed to get some more of the same for the next two or three days--it started out clear this morning with big clouds (probably cumulous but too far away to really see shape on all of the horizon that was visible. Now there is a fairly light cloud cover which will probably burn off by this afternoon. Another late afternoon of thunder, lightning and short periods of heavy rain.

This is cool by me (sorry McCoy--you must take after the paternal side of your breeding--the maternal side seem to be pretty sound tolerant)--I like this kind of weather--saw lots of it all those summers with my grandmother spent in central South Dakota. I like the way the grass smells when it gets rained on after several very hot dry days. I like the electrical storms--big thunder makes me duck and cringe (I'm the noise sensitive one in this family).

My memories include a lot of swearing (or what passed as swearing for my grandmother who didn't really swear) about the static and general interference of baseball games broadcast in Minnesota by the electrical storms. But the mornings after the storms were wonderful--cool (South Dakota didn't have much humidity but there was none after a big storm rolled through and picked up as much water as it laid down.

But it's true--these Midwest type summer storms are really rare--sometimes years between them so getting two or three days is pretty exciting.

We looked at a lot of breeds - I love Siberians, but realistically I just don't want to keep up with that kind of grooming. My agility trainer has an Aby - I love her, but just a TOUCH too much for me, activity-wise. Same with OSH...I love them, have a friend who is showing hers, but man, he's kind of nuts! He's probably more active than the Dobes! Just not sure I want that level of activity in a cat Devons aren't couch potatoes, that's for sure, but they aren't *quite* the nutty level of some breeds. I'm actually hoping we might end up with a really outgoing, social butterfly type of cat that might just be interested in being out in the world and going on hospice visits, but that's certainly not a deal-breaker. It's a rare thing to find that in a cat, but it might happen.
I like Rex's--they are all pretty cool. One of the members here who hasn't been active in a long time had a Rex--she thought she wouldn't like it--her husband and his family were the cat fanciers--turned out she was wrong. When she'd had it a few months she commented that when she got her first Dobe she thought it was great because it meant no grooming (then they started to show the bitch and found out just how much hair you can take off a short haired dog to make them look "seamless" in the show ring) and shortly after that her comment was that when they got the Rex she thought--NO GROOMING--YAY!--then reality hit--the breeder explained that to keep the skin in good shape their kitten should be bathed at least monthly--and also trained to accept frequent bathing without a fight.

I prefer short hairs--but one of the 'rescues' a long hair who had clearly been abandoned since I found her living in my back yard, wearing a little red collar and eating snails (ick--evidently the only thing she could catch) was about as long haired as they come--looked like a Himalayan--Persian in body type--heavy boned, cobby body but her head type was rather more Siamese than Person. She was somewhere between a chocolate and seal point. However--she was nervous and when upset tended to yank out her hair--occasionly she took out big patches and then her secret was out--under that creamy Himalayan coat lay a very ordinary light brown tabby.

When I had her spayed the vet thought she was probably around two--she lived with me for nearly 21 years--and for most of that time she took care of her own coat (and that of any other cats and sometimes a dog) but the last two years were sad--she quit grooming and I tried to keep the coat in shape but often ended up shaving big patches. In many ways she was a lovely cat without much personality--she had lovely big blue eyes (for which she got her call name "Sweet Judy Blue Eyes"--and for the first 10 years she lived with me she never got on furniture--but if there was paper on the floor (a newspaper or a magazine) she would go and sit on that. And I could have given her away to friends who had little kids--they could carry her around, get her sticky with popcicle drippings or cake frosting and she'd smile, purr and wash the kids and herself.

Very unlike the shorthaired idiots who liked to ricochete off walls and furniture. She lived to be old enough to demonstrate exactly what age related dementia meant--she'd get lost in familiar places and if I didn't hear her the dogs would come and tell me Judy was crying. I'd go in the kitchen (at the other end of a very small house) and find her stuck in a corner that she couldn't find her way out of--I'd pick her up and the three dogs would walk us back to the bedroom where I'd put Judy on the end of the bed. She'd heave a big sigh and go to sleep.

I've had some great cats from the ones in my childhood that were actually my mothers cats to the ones that were really mine as an adult. I like 'em..I'd probably be categorized as a cat person. I love my dogs but I can and have lived without dogs at times--I don't do well without a cat in the house.

OK the good old sciatica seems to be reasonably handled by the meds this morning so I'll go see if I can plant the rest of the bulbs (planting directions recommended planting several batches two weeks apart so you get a long season of bloom on these summer bulbs--it's not that I was following planting instruction but I guess the sciatic did it for me...)

We were lucky that the two long hairs we've had didn't have the type of coats that required a ton of grooming. We brushed them every once in a while but they just didn't mat...I don't know what it was, but somehow we got REALLY lucky. I tend to prefer short hairs to own, but a lovely long hair is just SOOO stunning. If you ever want to take a peek, look at https://www.azsiberiancats.com/. She's a great breeder of Siberians down in Arizona - I'm in love with her cats, particularly Adalind. We were SOOOO close to getting on her list, but I just don't think I can keep up with that type of coat. She breeds lovely cats, though - I follow her on Facebook just to admire her kitties. I love what she does for the breed, too - tons of health testing, really seems to be the type of breeder I like. Maybe some day if I don't have dogs I'd be more up for it.

I'm pretty excited about potential Devon...they seem to be fun cats! The coat is super soft and personality for days. You know I'm at heart a cat person, too. Adore my dogs, but I don't think I could live without a cat...preferably several!

I looked at it Mel and also wondered if it was intentional or just a Kennyism.

DoK, Kenny--have you leaned use that tablet yet? Did you figure out how to back up and correct stuff? of were you being "humorously indecent?"

TN, the more I look at that picture, the more I like it. I'd be tempted to frame it or sell posters of it, if it were mine.

(Notice my careful use of the word "were" in the sentence above. That's the subjunctive form..."were" instead of "was", because the thing I was talking about is contrary to fact. I will never be able to take a picture that good, therefore I will never have one to sell or frame.)

Was JJ a true no show or did he at least call and say he couldn't make it?

Thank you so much for the compliments. I love when people see (through my pics) what I see, or saw, in person. I've always loved nature and enjoy being able to get photos like this. Haha, the first time I saw a 10-point buck and had my camera in hand, I was shaking so bad that I was afraid none of the pics would come out ok but luckily, he stood there and posed for me...that's a moment I'll never forget.

Just something that sprang into my mind when I read your post, SP--sort of a flight of ideas kind of thing. Funny how that works.

Thanks Ma!

Okay Peeps!

I am going to spill my guts here.

Mister was out on the Ztrak and I was out on the porch watching him mow. I was trying to learn by watching.

He called me off the porch and gave me my first Ztrak lesson. INSIDE the yard! Scared the **** out of me and I relinquished the mower!



That thing is super duper touchy with no brakes? What? No brakes?

Guess I will hand this to Mister. He was right, I need lessons.

I am so ashamed of myself.

@ LD...

"pedant | ˈpednt |
noun
a person who is excessively concerned with minor details and rules or with displaying academic learning."

Pedant... Mel and I are classic examples! (Not to be confused with intellectual or academic snobbery). Its just what it is ....

We compete regularly here on DT.

I think that I am in the lead! LOL

It means I'm too erudite. Reading between the lines, I think he is implying I tend to flaunt my superiority.

Or perhaps that my pedagogism is incorrigible.
