You must stop drinking your bathwater.

I've had three cats. One brought a small bird in the door once. Another, chased and killed a chipmunk. That was about it.

Who's he racing for? Stradalli "got robbed" twice and closed their Boulder store.

If the mods keep a list of troublemakers, I get a fresh start. Seedsbelize is/was assuredly on that list. I'm sure there are other advantages.

I could register a complaint about you, if it would make you feel better.

Mainly his company. There are still a few holdouts with him, which is cool, but it's not the team it once was.

Jackie is not normal.

We started seeing a big fox in our backyard and then Dusty the Merciless was gone.

Everyone loves an underdog. Overcat, however, demands your worship...

Speaking of dogs, Mrs. GeneJockey's best friend's Mom just died, and BFF is off to AZ for the funeral - which isn't till Friday, apparently - and we are taking care of her dogs. One's not much problem, a little poodle mix about the size of Dory (12#), but the other is a DIFFERENT poodle mix of about 40-50#. He's a real sweetheart, BUT he has some neurodegenerative condition that has made his leg muscles so weak he totters around, can't do stairs AT ALL, and really can't manage a tile or hardwood floor. As a result, he has to be carried up or down the 3 steps to the yard when he wants in or out.

SO, Mrs. GeneJockey slept in the garage (which doubles as a guest bedroom) with Dory and the two visiting dogs, since the garage is at ground level and Ollie could just walk out to the side yard. But we could already tell this morning that if everyone else is up in the living area, Ollie wouldn't be happy waiting in the garage. So we gotta figure out something else...

I have an appointment this afternoon to go check out/acquire that 1985 Centurion Ironman I wasn't going to buy.

Y'all should feel free to make fun of me. This makes NINE.

Love cats.

Retina scans show no improvement since last month. This makes 12 or 13 injections, so far. Try one more injection next month and reevaluate.

Anyway, hurts like I have a rock in my eye and burns more than the Avastin does. Dark room for the rest of the day…

All of our cats have been kept indoors, 'cause I don't need em killing little critters and I don't want em getting killed by bigger critters (or autos).

Ugh. Good luck.

Ha ha! /Nelson
I'd like to get a fat bike for the winter, but I think that I'm going to get a new trainer, instead. I feel like I'm finally getting back to the fitness level that I had last year, and I'd like to stay a little more on top of it through the winter this year. Not that I've felt bad this year, but... well, better is better.

RIP Norm Macdonald.

Don't know how you can do that. I don't like anything near my eyes. I'm an ophthalmologist's worst patient.

Ours, too. My 'hood is thick with coyotes. Outdoor cats don't last very long.

We do what we have to do.

There is a ride called the “Savage Century” in a few weeks. It’s 7500 feet of climbing, which is not that much imo but probably as hilly as it gets around here. My friends want me to sign up. Hmm….

That sounds much worse than an infusion, though presumably much quicker (than two hours).
