RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

It's so funny watching Lily chase the red leaser dot across the floor. She will chase it until you drop. She doesn't quit no matter how tired she gets.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is raining and cold here this morning. The fur gang is doing fine. Izzie and Lily are keeping their distance while Peaches and Hobo skirt the edges of their premature trying to stay out of harm's way. Last night I had a hard time with the fire as the wood didn't want to burn. So after a while of burning the starter kindling I got the blow dryer and blew on the hot coals and wasn't noticing that I was blowing smoke into the room. The fire alarms went off, all of them.... The fur gang was looking for somewhere to hide and get away from the loud noise. I opened all the windows I could and the sliding glass doors and waited for the smoke to clear. Finally the alarms shut down and everything returned to normal whatever that is.... This morning the girls got chicken broth in the breakfast, they loved it. Lily will have a hard time adjusting to life back at home when her family gets back. She has been spoiled rotten with special food that our girls get. I mix it with her regular food so she doesn't lose a taste for that. Sue makes a special blend of food for Suzie that has chicken, rice, beans, carrots and some other things that is supposed to be a healthy diet. Suzie loves it and so does the others when they get a chance to eat it. Hobo and Peaches have a very special diet from the vet that keeps them fit. Okay I need to get ready to face the day so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day. Talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Congratulations to Wilson. Dan and Patty I know you will enjoy your new addition. We will be looking forward to meeting Wilson at the Old Fella Rally next year. Boy the weather is a mixed bag. Monday we will be back in the 70's. Sunday will be a wash out with heavy rain and winds up to 45 MPH. At night we have been using the fire place to heat the house enjoying the fire side glow that comes from the wood as it burns. The girls are doing fine this morning. Lily is the life of the party. This morning she had Suzie chasing her in the bedroom. Lily would run under the bed, which Suzie can no longer get under and playfully attack Suzie as she got near and then run back under the bed. Of course Suzie was trying to catch the rocket, but Lily is too fast. Last night Izzie attacked Lily for no reason and got me on the leg with his claws as Lily made a dive for my lap. This was bad news for Izzie as he then got my attention, which he did not want, not in that way. Today will be a peaceful day enjoying the sunshine and the mild temperatures. It was 32* this morning but it is suppose to warm up by midday. Dan, what is going on with your camper? Hope it is nothing too serious. Our camper is sitting in the back yard looking lonely. We haven't been any where since September. We plan to go to Hilton Head Island December 27th for a week, but that is it for us right now. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now. Have a blessed day, hug the fur babies and I will talk with you later,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is a lot warmer this morning at fifty-two degrees and a high expected of the lower sixties today. Yesterday a life was ended that had lived a very long time, two hundred and forty nine years. At church there was a very large White Oak tree that was determined to be a danger to the buildings as it was hollow inside and large limbs were falling off of it. That means this tree was a small seedling in 1749. Can you imagine the changes in this country in 267 years? First we weren't a nation only a handful of people compared to today's population. When that seed took life and began to grow out of the ground there was nothing but forest and animals and a few Native Indians. No one had walked on the moon, no probe sent to Mars, no automobiles and the list goes on. If only that tree could talk and tell us exactly what it had seen. Okay enough of that. The girls are fine this morning. Lily followed me into the laundry room as I prepared the bowls with dry dog food. When I walked out Izzie was blocking the door and refused to let Lily out. There was a lot of whining going on before I asked Izzie to let Lily pass by. Today will be a nice day with plans to take daughter Ava out to lunch, She hasn't ridden in the 72 Lincoln yet so today she will get her chance. I have to replace the tires because there are broken belts in one or two of them and at eight years old it is about time. I have the name of the company that replaced them before so I can get the exact match I need to keep it looking original. Gary, yes I do have an attraction to dogs and they seem to accept me no matter what. It is a gift that has come in handy many times. When I was active in the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue there were dogs that I was able to rescue that no one else could have done. The only time I was ever bitten was when I rescued Suzie and I went about it all wrong. There are three kinds of dogs that will bite you, one that is hurt, one that is scared and one that is just down right bad and mean. You have to know which one you are dealing with and take the appropriate action. Having a love for animals seems to ease a lot of stress with them. Lily responds to me just as if she were mine. What a love sponge she is and just so social. If asked to keep her as our own I would do it in a heart beat with Sue's permission of course. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day and ask that you give your fur babies a hug for me.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It was thirty four degrees this morning and today will be in the mid fifties, not bad. With Lily we have a house full of fur babies. Yesterday Lily followed me around the house and when I went outside she went with me. When I would sit down she would jump into my lap. Last night she went to bed and slept the whole night. This morning she was eager to go outside and get back in to eat. She sat and watched me prepare the food for all the gang and waited her turn to be served. She is such a sweetheart and so much energy. Hobo, Peaches and Suzie are doing fine and well behaved. Izzie hasn't stalked Lily since she has been here and they give each other a wide berth when the pass each other in the house. It's nice to have so much love in the house. Mike Nichols died and Sue said he was close to eighty. I replied that young! The closer I get to that magical age the younger it looks to me. Okay I need to get moving so I will wish everyone a blessed day, give the fur babies a hug for me and I will talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The low here this morning was twenty-two degrees, not the nineteen that was predicted, but that's okay. The fur gang is fine, staying inside as much as possible. Lily will come to visit us for ten days while our neighbors go to Florida to visit family. I know she will enjoy her stay with us as she always does. I really like the little dog as she is so much fun and so full of energy. Sue's party with the Career Baptist Women went well last night. There were just breaking up when I got home at nine. The yard was full of cars so that I couldn't get into the driveway so I drove across the yard to get to the back where the camper is and was able to park the truck. Suzie, Peaches and Hobo were waiting for me, locked in the bedroom when I came in the back part of the house. They had been waiting for someone to free them from lock up since six thirty. Suzie told me all about it, how there were strange people in the house and food was being served and why should they be locked up when Izzie was free to socialize with the guest. Such is a dog's life I guess. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now. Have a blessed day and give the fur babies a hug for me, talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is twenty-six here with bright skies filled with sunshine. The high today will be thirty-eight and the low tonight will be fifteen. I guess winter is here and it is going to be a cold one. Sue is busy getting ready for the Baptist women's meeting tonight. She was cooking and cleaning all day yesterday and she will be doing the same today. The fur gang is well, warm with full tummies. They didn't stay outside very long this morning, out and in very quickly. I have to run to the church and borrow some folding chairs for tonight so the ladies will have somewhere to sit. I don't look forward to being booted out of the house tonight in the cold, but I have a place to go with a Baptist men's meeting across town. I always have the camper as a retreat and it will be nice and warm inside, but no water, no big deal. I hope everyone has a blessed day. I am going to get ready to face the day, so I will close for now, talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. No ice, no snow, but plenty of rain and forty-two degrees this morning. The girls were quick to go out and come back in as they don't care for the rain. I was lazy this morning and didn't get up until 7:20. The flannel covers feel so good on a cold winter's morning. I have no plans today except to watch the new blinds being hung by some guy Sue found to do the job. The blinds in the front are ones you can see through from the inside but not from the outside. I think they will be a nice addition. The bedroom is getting the old fashion wooden blinds. Anyway I am glad she decided to get someone to hang them as I am not too steady on a ladder anymore and with one eye it is hard to do anything that requires exact measurements. My excuse and I am sticking to it. Okay have a blessed day and I will talk with you later. Give the fur babies a hung and tell them Santa Claus is coming soon so they had better be nice.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Last night was a huge success with the "Daughters of the King" dinner. Sue, Allison, Ava and Holly looked beautiful last night. I was proud to be their server. The miracle last night was I didn't spill anything on anyone. The fur gang is fine this morning. It's not as cold predicted however we are supposed to have record cold Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain moves in tonight and with it warm temperatures then the clouds move out and the cold moves in. Monday morning will be a good one to stay in bed a little longer. I hope all is well with everyone and you are having a blessed weekend. I need to get moving so I can walk the girls before we go to church, so I will close for now and talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is twenty-six degrees here this morning. The girls didn't stay outside very long taking care of business. Yesterday it never got above forty-six degrees so the fireplace with the log fire felt good. Izzie slept on the dog bed in front of the fireplace all night. He loves the heat from the fire and is very content when he is there. Sue was busy yesterday getting chairs and tables back from Allison's house after the Thursday night Bunco party. Then she had to take things over to the church for tonight's "Daughters of the King" dinner. I am to be a server tonight, God help me that I don't spill food or drink all over someone. I have ten days before I get the results from the biopsy. I hope all is well so that I don't have to face the holidays with a cloud hanging over my head. Wednesday night brother Tom led the Wednesday night prayer meeting service and he said. "Don't tell God how big the storm is, just tell the storm how big your God is". As we enter the Thanksgiving and Christmas season I am grateful for the many blessings God has given Sue and I along with our family blessings. Our grandson Joshua now has his new bride in Germany with him. As they start their new life together I wish them well and God speed through out the years ahead. Speaking of dogs and blankets, Lily has her favorite blanket she has to have when she visits us. She also has a Lion King bed that is the cutest thing you ever saw. When she goes to bed at night she will drag her blanket to bed with her and fix it just right and then she will lay on it all night. Suzie, Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are not allowed near it as she is very protective of it. I have to put it in a kennel crate and close the door before she is satisfied that no one will touch it. Often during the day she will go check on it just to make sure it is okay. Sue and I love that little dog as if she were our own. Every morning she is let out when we come by walking the girls so she can join us. Then there are times during the day she will come visit and wants to come inside for a while then she is off to her house to check on things there. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now, have a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is cold this morning but not as cold as predicted. It is very overcast and dark outside, looks just like winter. The girls are fine, just laying around waiting for me to say "Let's go." However it has to warm up before I go outside. I am thinking about building a fire in the fireplace this morning to warm the great room up so we can turn the thermostat down on the heat pump. It is going to be a nice day to sit by the fire, read or just watch TV. Izzie is still asleep this morning. That cat is sleeping his life away. Last night he was wanting to climb into somebody's lap, but I wouldn't sit still long enough and Sue was at Allison's house at a Bunco party. Ava's mother in law is in the hospital and they don't know exactly what happed to her. At first the doctors thought she had suffered a stroke but have now ruled that out. Her speech is slurred and she doesn't know where she is nor what is going on. Pray for her recovery as she is till a young woman. Anyone below my age is young. I hope all is well with everyone this morning and you are looking forward to a blessed day. Keep the fur babies warm and give them a hug for me. I have to go so I will close for now and will talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. All is well here in the Deep South as we get ready for a winter blast of cold air that is headed our way. There is plenty of fire wood so we will stay nice and cozy inside the house while the cold has it way outside. This time of year as you ride through the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and see the quaint cottages with smoke coming out the chimney it looks almost like a land of magical enchantment. This is such a beautiful part of the country with all of nature at its best. There is a stretch of highway up towards Pickens and Table Rock that is so beautiful with the mountain streams and Laurel along the way. The fur gang is well this morning. Hobo still the sweet humble, shy girl that warms the heart with her quiet ways. Always the one who wants to have things in a fashion of quiet order. She is so funny when Izzie goes to her bed and sleeps. Hobo will come to us and let us know something is amiss. Then she will go and lay next to her bed waiting for Izzie to leave. However Izzie will talk long naps and sometimes it is hours before he will leave Hobo's bed. So after a while Hobo will give up and come into the living room, I don't know what to call this room of ours as sometimes it is referred to as the great room. But it is not a great big room however it is the gathering point of focal room of the house. In this room is the kitchen, the two sofas and lounge chair and a large TV located above the stone covered fireplace. Also it has the sun room with the large glass sliding doors that go out to the back yard which gives you a view of the patio deck and the back yard with all the fall colors this time of year. Anyway back to Hobo and the rest of the fur gang. Suzie and Peaches are two that are such friends yet so different in nature. They will sometime break out in a dance and a game of chase while in the yard. Peaches does so well to be thirteen years old. This Christmas will be one of joy and sadness as we celebrate this year without Mama. She really took a piece of my heart when she left. She was my buddy and the one that I loved to snuggle with. Her fur coat was so soft and full and such a beautiful blonde color. We have the memories and that is a comfort to me, however I still miss her greatly. Okay it is time for me to go. Have a blessed day and give the fur kids a hug for me.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. What a beautiful day yesterday. It was 75* and so nice outside. I went and got another load of fire wood so now we are set for winter. Starting tomorrow we will get some of the cold arctic blast that has been coming our way. So I will just throw another log on the fire, sit back and enjoy being inside. The fur gang is doing well this morning. Suzie went out and came back in with a whole lot of energy. She has adopted the green toy Mama got last Christmas and she really enjoys it. Hobo is acting funny this morning. I don't know what get into her but she acts as if someone is going to beat her. For as long as she has been with us no one and I mean no one has raised a hand against her. She has been chastised for different things, but never has she been hit. Go figure..... Today is November 12th. The month is flying by and soon it will be December. Got your Christmas list ready? Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day. Talk with you later.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The fur gang is fine this morning. They have eaten their breakfast and now waiting on me and Sue to take them for a walk. Yesterday was busy as I went on a mission to visit a young man who has terminal cancer and is in his last stages with only days to live. His wife is so distraught and blames herself for his illness in that she believes she hasn't given him the care he needs at home. She has done all she could and there isn't anymore she could have done. I guess it comes with the territory when you love someone so much and you see them slipping away. There is anger that God would allow this to happen and confusion as to the suffering that comes to a child of God. I tried to be a comfort to them as best I could but I felt that when I left I had done nothing to change their point of view. All I could do was to let them know they were loved by family and friends and they would receive any help we could give. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is a cool morning here in the Deep South at 42*. The day will be mild and pleasant, a nice day to be outside. The fur gang is fine, looking frisky and wanting to play. I guess with the cool weather they feel more like playing. Lily was back and forth yesterday looking for company while her folks were away. She is such a loving little dog, such a joy to have around. Izzie spent the day sleeping and then came alive in the evening going outside with Sue for some time in the backyard. I am feeling better since last Wednesday and looking forward to the Thanksgiving season. Joshua is back in Germany and his new bride will be leaving next weekend to join him. Austin is doing well in his first year in college and really enjoying it. Holly has accepted a scholarship to Clemson and is excited about starting college next year. Today Sue and I will go to church and then eat lunch and spend the day taking it easy. I got up feeling tires but I feel okay now. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and wish you a blessed day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with the FOOFS and you plan to have a great weekend. The fur gang is doing well, happy, well fed and waiting for their walk. Holly and I had a good time last night with dinner and a movie. We went to see the movie Interstellar. It has a weird ending but it was entertaining, When I got home everyone was in bed asleep. You would have thought the girls would have met me at the door, but nooooo! They were in bed and nothing was going move them. Today is supposed to be a beautiful day with mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine. It will be a good day to be outside. We have had a busy week with church. People in the hospital and we had one death which keeps the deacons busy with visiting and taking care of those who have lost loved ones. Okay I need to get moving and face the day so I will close for now. Have a blessed day and give the fur babies a hug for me
