  • The hummers are almost dangerous out there right now. I went out to re-fill one and don't know how they missed me.

    We have some old feeders we retired over the years and I am tempted to fill them to see if I can relieve some of the pressure and improve air traffic control.

    There is a portion of my garden that will be in dire need of amendments this year. I literally bent my spade trying to dig up some carrots. Yikes! I am not following my own advice! After I finish using the jackhammer I will put half the soil on top of a huge compost bin and use it for a garden.

    Where I took the soil out will be filled with wood chips and mixed in. This area will sit all winter but the first one may get planted with some bok choy and other winter greens.

    I missed a good window of opportunity this past weekend but cooler days will be back. Of course, they may need to be used on repairing the tractor or getting the woodpile restocked, but.... the good intentions are there.

  • I would like the cream kitten, if you still have it...please and thank you! :)

  • Simon, as we call the cream kitten, seems to have quite a fan base. HE is not only distinctive looking, but also a people cat. BJ and the mousekateers all have endearing personalities too.

    The mouskateers are really hard to tell apart. One is still a mama's baby, preferring to nurse, stays out of the original rush for treats and often hides for the first few minutes, but once all three are together, I can't tell one from the other.

    Our daughter says there are subtle differences and I think I can see them but my eyes will have to wait for them to grow before I can readily identify them.

  • cats4me, we are about to offer the kittens. It has been a small family issue to let Simon go but we will do it to someone who takes one of the other siblings. There are three orange and one black.

    Let me know as soon as possible. We plan to offer them to all tomorrow. (Thursday the 16th)
