Updates: Painting & the kitties

Friday, April 27, 2012

It took me a total of 3 hours, but I got the porch painted yesterday (after blowing to remove any new dust, painting around posts & edges with brush finishing the rest of the floor with a roller). This morning I will go out & put coat #2 on it & should be done. It looks better already.

The kitties were doing so well. I cut a hole in the side of the box a few days ago so they could get out & walk around the patio. They were so cute with their little faces peeking out & I planned to take more pictures. After I finished painting yesterday I noticed they were all gone! Miss Kitty had decided to move them. Don't know where or why.....thought she was happy with them there. I will have to watch her leave after eating & see where she goes. I just want them to be in a safe place.

Kitties pictures

Sunday, April 22, 2012

The babies are 17 days old today (were born the day before Good Friday). Their eyes are open & they love mama's milk!

I know Matt Dillion was the daddy of the dark grey one (Matt is solid black), but it seems she had other "visitors" to father the other 3. emoticon

The Trooper & The Senior Citizen

Tuesday, April 17, 2012


A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little gray hair he had left. "Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-94, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch, and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The old gentleman paused. Then he said, "Years ago, my wife
ran off with a State trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."

"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper

My Mother hit a Texas State Trouper in the back end. She didn't get hurt or hurt anyone but we always warned her that they were still looking for her.

JUST STAY

Monday, April 16, 2012

Just Stay


A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.

"Your son is here," she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.

He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.

Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.

"Who was that man?" he asked.

The nurse was startled, "He was your father," she answered.

"No, he wasn't," the Marine replied. "I never saw him before in my life."

"Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?"

"I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his

son just wasn't here.

When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed."

I came here tonight to find a Mr. William Grey. His Son was Killed in Iraq today, and I was sent to inform him. What was this Gentleman's Name?

The Nurse with Tears in Her Eyes Answered, Mr. William Grey.............


The next time someone needs you ... just be there. Stay.

    When one of my dear friends was in a hospital he was in the HIV/AIDS ward because he is HIV positive, but he was in for a minor issue not related to HIV at all. At one point I was going down the hall and overheard a young man who was obviously dying crying on the phone begging his mother to come see him (apparently she'd disowned him). I have always regretted not going into his room and just hugging him. I don't think I could ever pass it up again knowing the regret that I feel not having done it then. That is so touching.

Kitties, doctor report, etc.

Monday, April 16, 2012

I checked the kitties yesterday & their eyes are open so decided to move them today (they are in a cat/dog carrier on the 2nd floor porch...this is where Miss Kitty had them 10 days ago). This morning I took the flashlight (because it is dark when I get up) to check them & feed the 3 cats (Miss Kitty, Doc & Festus). They are gone!! She moved them last night. Now I will have to find them as I wanted to take a picture & post it for you to see all 4 of them.

I saw the doctor last week for blood work (it was good). Cholesterol was down since she put me on medication in Jan., lost 1 pound, & everything else was okay. Will go back in 6 months to be checked again. She says I am prediabetic & it would help if I lost more weight & stayed away from "concentrated sweets".

I have joined the Diabetes 8 week Challenge & would appreciate any help. Still do not know how to change My Nutrition Tracker to diabetes.

Have a great day everyone!!

    I wonder why the mother cat moves the kittens. We had a cat give birth in the garage. Scared the living daylights out of me when I went into the garage to get something from my flea market inventory and this thing darted out. Then I heard mew mew. Found 6 tiny fluffs. I wouldn't have know what it was as they were so tiny. My friend said she must have had them within the last day or so. I took care of them and Mama for 7 weeks. My niece came and got them then. My landlord wanted me to take them to the park and drown them. Can you imagine. I called a friend who loves animals and asked her what to do because I am allergic. No one could take them. Her friend called the police and said I was going to drown them. I had the police knocking at my door 1 hr. later. I told them it was the landlord. They told her if they found kittens in the park they would arrest her. I got to keep them for 7 weeks. My niece kept Mama, which she named Sunny and one of the kittens, Jack. I loved them all and cried when I had to give them up. Especially Pumpkin and orange cat with black in it. She was beautiful.

Good that your test came back okay. You are doing emoticon I don't know anything about diabetes. My Mom is diabetic and I still don't understand it. Thank God my sister in law is an ER nurse. Let us know if you post the pictures.
