Tuedsay LOSTday

Still not feeling Tom Terrific and His Mighty Dog, Manfred! (It was a cartoon shown on the original Captain Kangaroo Show.) I went to bed last night at 8:30pm and woke about 2:30am when Scott got up to let the dogs out. I spent an hour trying not to be nauseous. I woke at 6:30am and got up.

Got to tell you, it was 11am before I got bathed. I went to the store to get the doggies a new water bowl. Rocky can drain the current bowl all at once. I found this cute dog water-cooler-like combo.

It holds almost 3 gallons. That should make keeping Rocky hydrated a little easier.

By the way, this is the one Selene and Nate gave us for the cats. These’s supposed to be a feeding bowl where the green pot sleeve is. I use the pot sleeve for dryer lint. Yes, we feed the cats on top of the dryer to keep the dogs out of their food.

Grover doing what he loves!

Cute cat food story: Between the deaths of Artemis & Rosemary and the arrival of Duke; we had two cats, Tabitha and Abraham. We fed them in the kitchen. One hot summer night, Scott and Selene were asleep and I was watching TV. I heard noise in the kitchen and got up to investigate. A mama raccoon had brought her brood in through the open garage to sample the cat food buffet. As I approached, she ‘told’ her little ones to leave and she suddenly started making a ‘hoohoohoo’ sound while hopping up and down. I backed off; I wasn’t going to fight over a few pieces of cat food. She backed off; she wanted to get back to the kids. I sat down and let my heart rate slow down. Just another night in our mad-cap household.

My goals, except for dinner are nearly complete. I just have to do a couple more loads of laundry and makeup the bed, fresh. I have gotten the water bowl, bathed, brushed my teeth, played with the pets, done a load of dishes, and a couple of loads of laundry, took a nap, and wrote this. All is well.

PS  I forgot the potting mix!  When I went to the back room for the one I had stored there, I found one of the cats used it for a litter box. :(  I put the used mix on a flower bed next to the back door.  Tomorrow, potting mix!
