I'm listening to Disney's Peaceful Piano Melody - Kentaru Haneda

The topic: Potter’s new do

----------------------------------------------

Potter was a little freaked out by the entire ordeal.  He screamed on the way over, he screamed when he heard me in the front office, waiting to pick him up and he screamed all of the way home.  I asked if he was so noisy when he was in the back and I was told “no”.  I guess he just screams around me.

Anyway, he was still a little damp when I got him and I was warned that they’d gotten at least twenty fleas off of him, so I’d best readminister Advantage (I just did them all on the 4th of this month).  I guess mats are a great hiding place for fleas and their eggs.

When we got home, I let him out of the carrier and boy, was he weirded out. He didn't seem to know what was going on. I think maybe it was a little residual of the gas he'd gotten. But you can see by the first three images how nervous he looked.

As the night progressed, he became more relaxed. I think the barenaked thing felt a little odd, too. And the fact that his skin wasn't being continuously yanked on.

Sunday, he was back to normal. He's a lot more comfortable and happy now. And since the heat hasn't let up, I'm sure it helps him out there, too.

The topic: Late start on cams today

----------------------------------------------

The Gateway did not want to boot up.  It would start, then shut down.  I think it’s something with the video card or video adaptor.  I tried rebooting four or five times, then quit at that point because it was time for our walk.

When we got home, before pulling everything apart, I turned it on and the monitor was showing the boot process, which it hadn’t done previously this morning.  I’m thinking maybe the video card is going out. 

More computer annoyances, a friend of my emailed yesterday saying her work number had changed.  I figured I’d use the computer to change the information on my cell.  First I couldn’t find the cable (it was right by my head, if it was a snake, it could have easily bit me), then I realize the new computer doesn’t have a serial port.  Aha!  Remember when I first got the new computer and it didn’t have the advertised parallel port and I purchased an adapter?  I did the same thing for the serial port.  I found it quickly in the mess that my office storage closet has become and got everything up and working.

That was much easier than just changing the number on the cell, using the cell.

We found seven pennies, one nickel and a quarter on our walk this morning

Today we have Benny Da Kat showing off his tummy.  His fur is coming back in from his summer do and it’s wavy!  It won’t stay that way, though.
