The topic: Woohoo!


Woohoo!  Look!


Guess who that is?  It’s LONEE!  She’s in the house!  I guess bringing the food in the house did it.  It’s nice to have her inside.  Last time I looked, she was snoozing in one of the beds on the entertainment center.

I was worried about OC.  I didn’t see him yesterday morning or last night.  I was really getting concerned.  I guess I was used to seeing him here during the afternoon.  Then when KittyMeeze was the only one who showed up this morning, I got really worried.  But when Brian and I got back from our walk, we saw him under the neighbor’s van.  Whew.

I had a little adventure yesterday.  Me and the Bronco.  I had to go to Costco and about a quarter of a mile from the exit, the Bronco started sounding really bad.  I looked at the dashboard and the oil lamp was on.  I pulled off to the side and killed the motor.  I would have paged Brian, but I didn’t know the number of the cell phone in the Bronco.  So I called my mom and told her I was going to page him with her phone number, I told her where I was and for her to let him know.  As I sat there trying to find out how to get the phone to tell me what the number was, I thought “maybe he’s at his shop” and tried him there.  Luckily, he was.  I told him where I was and he and Mark came to help me out.  Brian told me to pop the hood and start the car and I did.  It sounded really bad, but it got better.  He told me to rev it up to 2000 rpm and hold it there.  As I did, the sound got better, no warning lights. We went back to the shop and I took the Ranger and got my shopping done.  The oil lamp on the Bronco never lit up again.  *sigh*  Brian will be driving the Bronco for a few days just to make sure it’s okay, though.  It was really strange.  I’m glad it was making that horrible noise for him, otherwise I’d think I was going crazy.

DeeJay has been eating more.  And he’s been eating his kidney food.  AND he’s been extra special affectionate.  He wants to be held constantly.  It seems to be even worse when some other kitty is on the heating pad.  Right now, he’s on the office cam.  I already gave him his fluids, he had a little to eat and now he’s all content.

Amazingly, most of the cats stayed indoors today.  I think Pete was the only one who stayed outside.  Even Benny slept in the bed all day, Opie and Richie curled up together on the side opposite Benny.  It was pretty nice to have them all in and sleeping.  Now that the sun’s gone down, they’re wanting back outside.  They had to come in early last night when the rain started. I didn’t want to be looking for them in the pouring rain.

The weather station wasn’t working right, either.  It showed almost a half inch of rain, when the plain old plastic gauge that is hung on the fence showed .91 inches.  I changed the batteries in the weather station, hopefully that was the problem (you need both batteries and A/C to get it to work correctly, don’t ask me why) but since we’re expecting more storms, I’d really like it to be working properly.

That’s it for today.
