    I don’t know how long my droopy eyes will stay open, but the lights are on here in the lounge, comfy chairs await, and the fountains are flowing. I just took a walk to get my mail and it’s not overly hot but ultra humid.

    Kittehs are grilling and the fireworks are starting.

    Welcome!

    Joan, I’m here for a bit…………. love the fireworks!…………. Abby is SO mad at me ’cause I’ve totally transitioned her and Cuddles to ‘totally’ wet food…………… Cuddles doesn’t mind (she loves her wet), but my Abbs is a ‘kibble addict’….. *hangs head in shame*……… and she’s having a hard time of it!…………..

    …… this Holiday weekend is my do/die Mexican standoff with Abby for a totally wet diet, so it’s not gonna be fun, but we’ll get thru it!……….

    ….. hope everyone is having a good holdiay……….. prayers and white lights for those that need them!

    Hang in there, AV! Boy do I hear you on this one. We took Georgie off a mixed wet/dry diet and now we had to cut off his treats cold turkey, he is one unhappy meowser. But better that than another $$$$$ surgery.

    Hi ladies, I don’t envy the dietary changes for your babies. My duo gets their crunches and during the week they share a packet of Wiskas for dinner and on the weekends they share a can of Fancy Feast. Leela likes her Wiskas but Comet goes gaga for Fancy Feast!

    I’ve been reliving my glory days on youtube. Yes, I’m on it – in a good way. I spent my teenage years in a drum corps.

    Joan, do Leemet like kitty treats? I had just stocked up when the vet said “no more” πŸ™ They’re Temptations brand, which I think someone on the board once described as having the nutritional value of Cheetos πŸ™‚ but Georgie loves them.

    Hehe, they love treats – perhaps because they don’t get them too often!

    It may take me a while to get to it, but you’ll probably be getting a package from me & Georgie πŸ™‚

    Awww, thank you in advance! I’m sorry Georgie must be deprived of them, but I will make sure they know where they came from every time!

    Girls got a new “toy” since I got a new vacuum, they have the wonderful ong box to play in. The hubs has just come down with a cold and is harking up a lung currently πŸ™ I thought we had cough medicine but the only bottle we have has codine in it! Stupid infirmary on campus knows neither of us can take codine *Sigh* so in the bin that one went. Had some muxinex, I have some honey too if I can get him to down it. I have a feeling it’s going to be a long night.

    Oooh, good luck Kit, and hang in there. Nice of you to get the girls a new toy πŸ™‚

    It’s late. I’m gonna take some virtual milk and cookies and go to bed. See you on the flip side.

    Evening all, wheeeeeeeeeee fireworks ! Thanks for opening and getting the fountains flowing Joan.

    AV, try not to pull your hair out this weekend on the meat changeover, Abby will eat when she gets hungry enough. Try an ignore the pleading looks from her though.

    Hi Kilroy and Kit. So with you on the cold thing Kit, I’m just getting over a nasty head/neck cold and had a bark like a seal. We have a ‘no codeine’ taker in the house too. I found advil settled my cough for the night before I bought cough mixture. Hope you get some sleep.

    Evening everyone, about to head out the door for that place once again.

    The crew would have hissy fits if they couldn’t get their Temptation treats (which Red absolutely loves) and their Kitten Chow crunchies besides their 1/4 can each am/pm of wet food. I know that the dry food isn’t that good for them, but with two being seniors and knowing how they love going in the carriers…the vet told me they could have it if their heart desires.

    Glad to see everyone here πŸ™‚ Will be back after the witching hour, ta ta for now πŸ˜›

    ………. morning everyone!………… Thanks for the support on the dietary changeover……….. Cuddles was a sinch, since she LOVES wet to begin with!………… it’s Abby who is so very stubborn…………. for a while, I tried just giving her wet food in the morning, and then not giving her crunchies until she had finished her wet……………. well, she started ‘leaving’ it for hours, knowing crunchies would come later………… so, I had to cut out the crunchies totally…………… it’s been 4 days now, and she’s beginning to ‘get’ it, but I’m getting the ‘stink eye’ now when I go to feed her, and it’s not from the ‘crunchie’ tub…………

    WhatÒ€ℒs the Matter with Henry?

    Meet Henry

    When Henry was found, his left leg was seriously injured. This could have been the end for this kitten. Instead, it was the beginning of an incredible adventure. His is a story of triumph over bias and barriers as he was rescued by two people who didn’t even like cats. Henry taught his rescuers the power of love to overcome all. He teaches us that you can only hate what you don’t understand and always, you must be true to yourself. This gift book is for children of all ages, 6 to 96. His is a message of healing so needed in the world. ALL his profits go to help animals anywhere in the world. Hardcover, 84 pages.

    AV, those castles are amazing! Plans, nope being here and @ home mostly….I did go visit with my friend in the city I used to live in (Wednesday/Thursday) so that was nice to be able to just talk with her and visit.

    …… that’s nice to catch up with an old friend, I need to do more of that myself!…………..

    …… sometimes my best B’days are those with no special plans ………. I like just doing ‘me’ stuff …………….

    ….. Mr. AV and I are going over to MIL’s today to help her with a neighborhood picnic (why would they dump this duty on one of the most elderly residents, I don’t know), then to Brother’s for dinner ………….. tommorrw, I’ve promised myself I will do some minor cleaning, but generally nothing too much, cause I want to relax and read…………………..

    ……… I’ve promised not to pull the ‘tutu’ out this weekend, because ‘THEY’ keep saying it will rain starting tomorrow, and thru Monday……..

    AV, LOL I wanted the rain, rain, and yet more rain but guess it might not come to pass. I need to do some cleaning myself, I have two weeks of working only 4 days so might actually get that done πŸ™‚

    Nice!………. work 4 days……….. off 3………….. I WANT THAT SCHEDULE!

    ……….. here’s something to try for your Birthday….. I made these to take to the party today, and they are AWESOME!!!! (I’m also taking ‘the coleslaw’)

    Mexican Eggs

    8 hardboiled eggs – halfed, put yolks in a bowl

    1/3 cup mayo

    1 tsp fresh lemon juice

    2 tsp spicy brown mustard

    1/4 tsp salt

    1/4 tsp pepper

    1/2 tsp cumin

    1/2 tsp chilli powder

    mix all up and whip into creamy yumminess

    stuff eggs with mixture

    sprinkle tops of stuffed eggs with more chilli powder

    adorn each with a pickled jalopena slice on top

    ………….. they are SO good, really kicks ‘deviled’ eggs up a notch!

    AV, oh that does sound good! Actually I am working two 4 day weeks πŸ™‚ I took off the last day of the first week and the first day of the next week, so end up with four days off.

    nice Deb, enjoy your ‘me’ time!……….. I have to say, I made the eggs stuff in my cuisenart for the first time…………. usually just mash them with a fork, but always have a hard time getting all the lumps out………. so yesterday, I dug my cuisenart out of the cubbard, and it worked like magic!…….. I had forgotten how much I like that thingy………..

    AV, never had a cuisenart but always did admire them πŸ™‚ Thought about buying a rice maker this week, it would be a smaller one since its only me.

    Participant

    …………. have seen those rice makers, but don’t have one…………. I don’t have a lot of storage in my kitchen (since we moved from ‘the big’ house in ’08), so I have to pic & choose my machines carefully………….. I got rid of my blender, huge mix master, and some other things, cause the cuisenart does the same thing those do – mixes well, can chop/blend/puree – really whatever I need…………… the only other ‘machine’ I kept was my little electric chopper – that’s my small ‘go to’ for most tasks…………

    …………. speaking of rice makers, I saw them at Sam’s Club not too long ago…………. and speaking of rice – Sam’s Club’s yellow rice is the BEST ever!!……. seriously, you’ll never buy Vigo again, once you’ve tried this!………. it’s perfectly seasoned, never gets mushy, totally fool proof!…….. comes in a nice plastic container that keeps it fresh – it’s my favorite, I use it all the time!!!

    AV, Don’t have many machines myself anymore, the crockpot and blender are about it. Haven’t tried the SC’s yellow rice yet but may have to do that.
