Sharing....

This is Mike and Meg....
We have worked very hard on teaching them about sharing, mainly because of the size difference. 
After all he is 45 pounds heavier than she is....
BUT
There was no need to share the gastrointestinal bug with each other....
My house now looks like a pharmacy and smells like a kennel.....!!
After $450, one trip to the ER Vet and one trip to the CuteVet, they are on the mend.
Now....say a little prayer that they don't share with Max.

Strange Happenings

 The Culprit

Sunday night as I was getting ready for bed the house began to vibrate….now we’ve had small earth quakes in the surrounding area but this was different. It was a vibration with a beat..! A very unusual sound and feel for my neck of the woods…after all we live on the side of a mountain in a county that has less than 27,000 people…

It was sort ‘a like an inner city hip-hop car with a heavy base….

I quickly asked City Boy if he could hear or feel it and of course being almost deaf and half asleep he said..”What sound?”

Well I began to search the house – fearing that it was the HVAC system failing on a night that was already 11* and falling fast. Nope, the system was hard at work and making the normal sounds. By this time City Boy had joined me in the search and we headed back upstairs. We searched each room and found nothing but the vibration.

Finally…..the wall between the sewing room and the great room seemed to be vibrating the most….but….Why?

As we walked away shrugging our shoulders…City Boy yelled…”Wait! What’s this.” Then he picked up the control for his automatic reclining chair and turned off the massage option.

Hallelujah! It stopped…!!

Seems as he was getting up to get a bedtime snack he hit the wrong button…

Hummmmm…..

Happy Birthday...

to Misskitty...!!!

We have no idea when her birthday really is or how old she is..
but
since we refer to her as "the Cat from Hell" on occasion..
Halloween seemed like a good birthday choice and we've had her eleven years...
you can do the math..we're saying thirteen...but...she could be older.

Well here's the high country update...

  • The leaves changed late this year.
  • CityBoys sister came for a quick visit.
  • The parental units are doing well.
  • CityBoy is doing well.
  • The Malechild will be receiving his master's degree in Autism Spectrum Disabilities this time next year.
  • Mickey is now up to 50 lbs and still growing.
  • Max and Meg are tolerating Mickey and are liking the new peanut butter snacks..
  • We had our first snow....!!
  • And I'm hanging in there....
