Thanks Pickie for your comment on my blog. Yes, I am chipping away at it. I have a feeling that I will still need to cull some areas again, specifically where crafts are involved.

Uber and Lyft are like personal chauffeurs (rather than taking a taxi--more expensive), and the drivers pick you up and take you to where you need to go. Tesla is an electric car--very sleek and nice!

Had a wonderful time in Portland.

Thanks Pickie for the comment on my blog and also for that recipe for getting rid of skunk spray from our critters. I will keep that one for sure! AWESOME emoticon

Of course, I gotta tell ya, you and King Slayer are just plain weird emoticon and totally in the dark when it comes to only liking dogs and NOT liking cats emoticon The thing is, I love cats and dogs alike emoticon emoticon and believe if a dog-only person ever actually owned a kitty and really got used to how they REALLY are, rather than how the bona-fide cat haters of this world so falsely describe them, they'd soon find out how absolutely loving and loyal a kitty is towards their family. Honestly, even when Molly was sprayed by that skunk, our biggest cat, Jerry, curled up around her in a protective manner and obviously tried to comfort the poor thing. And that is NOT his typical behavior when all things are running normally. I have found over the years of my own life's ups and downs that cats are just as sensitive to our moods as dogs are ......and will TRY as best they can to bring their human companions comfort, as well. I guess there's a lot we could learn from animals and their behaviors ... if we watch with open minds and open hearts. emoticon

Anyway, I am also allergic to cats (severely) .... and dogs .... and even horses, as well .......but what is a person to do? Go to Mars? Guess we just have choose to love whatever critters we have and do the best we can by them. Of course, getting off the pulpit for a little bit, I will admit to you that I HATE a few animals .... like, coyotes (hate em with a passion!) and I HATE skunks that visit my yard.

Hey, ain't none of us PURRRFECT emoticon
