Rock: I'm so very, very sorry to read this about Zippy. You cared for and nurtured him and I know you're going to miss him a lot. I know how he insisted on being outdoors. You tried to make him sleep indoors but what were you to do? Animals like us people get stubborn in our old age. Coyotes have become so aggressive over years of being around humans and other animals. When my big cat Abby hides at night when I'm calling her (yes, I know she does that) I get mad and turn off the light.......that's when she knows I've won and comes to the door wanting in. It's a nightmare having to work your way thru insurance stuff. My prayers go out to both you and Gordon, you guys have been hit very hard this past week. Mikie: I figured you were down and out again. I hope now it's all gone out of your poor, rundown body. BAD cats! Don't they know mama is sick! I got my new chairs delivered on Monday evening, thought I knew where they would look good, but by around 10 PM I just didn't like the feel of the arrangement. So, I started moving things around. Went to bed around midnight, didn't sleep more than 3 hrs. with stuff going around my head, so yesterday was a total wasted day aside from moving more furniture around! Mikie, I know you understand this! LOL I did make some new throw pillows, took some pics. of some furniture I want to sell, and headed to a nice resale shop. Bad news, Victorian furniture is dead, so today I'll try to list it on craig's list and hope someone wants exactly what I have. I need to go to a special lightbulb store, looking to replace a megabulb for an old 40s standing lamp. If not I'll just have to put the burnt out one back in or some how cover the opening. Oh yes, the pool pump was throwing water all around, had the pool repair man out. He has to order a new part for it which will run $140. Everything is so expensive! And he makes $90 an hr. WHAT! My systems analyst husband doesn't even make that! Julie: Great idea to pull the PU truck to where you can use it to pick apples.
