RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Dealing with some weird rash/itch on the scratched/bitten hand. If the germ-killing cream I already have doesn't help by tomorrow, off to the dermatologist. Sheesh. Cold front hit Saturday night. We had four hours of below freezing temps, but with 25-30 mph winds all day, so it was a sunny and very cold day. Last night, we had below freezing temps for nearly 10 hours, but no wind. Sunny now, no wind, and will be back into the normal range by tomorrow. Weather is making Czarny very unhappy. Wind was too much for his ears yesterday, and today isn't quite warm enough as of his last trip outside. He's napping on his bedroom tower. Harley, meanwhile, has finally trained her humans as to when it's playtime and when it's her naptime. We got her a new baton and dangly string and she was all over it before Spousal Unit had it fully out of the package. Then we found out why she refused all the cat treats of late: they were not beef. Bought some beef treats and she's a happy girl again. As long as it's a particular brand, Czarny doesn't much care which flavor. Trombone Player and Clarinetist had a good time; they needed to relax and got just that here. We made plans for linking up at minimum in June, at our university band alumni tribute to our most esteemed director there. He was the marching band director for 30 years, and at 90 can still name every band member and tell stories about each of us. Almost time to apply the next dose of cream. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Mother Nature is thoroughly messing with the local meterologist. Sunday forecast was for dense fog until mid-morning, then sunny. It was dense fog until mid-afternoon and cloudy. Monday's forecast was for dense fog until mid-morning. I drove to the big city and back early in the morning, and not a speck of fog to be had. Today's forecast was warm and humid, but mostly clear. It's almost warm, definitely humid, and overcast, with a touch of fog. Supposed to be 80 degrees on Friday and sunny. We'll see... Christmas presents were well-received. No leftovers to eat up. All is quiet. Santa brought me a cowbell, painted white with "More Cowbell" written on it. I love it. Will add to my miscellaneous percussion instruments bag for the band. Tall and Short Friend will not be returning from Minnesota today. Weather and airline issues. Maybe tomorrow. They did sell the Fifth Wheel (well, she put down a deposit and is applying for the loan) the day before they flew up there, so today Spousal Unit broke down the ramp he built for when Mom was living in it. On the wildlife front, a couple of really nice looking bucks are doing the daily trek around our fence line, and sometimes coming into the meadow. We haven't gotten good photos of them yet; they insist on coming after the best light has faded. Harley got upset last night and scratched my hand. It's nothing, just a little stingy. But on top of the bite Nephew Two's cat gave me Christmas Day (cat hates me since I took him to the veterinarian when he was desperately ill as a kitten), hand is a mite sore. I keep scratches and bites open to drain a couple days, while spraying with hydrogen peroxide several times a day. When the red is mostly gone, I let them close up. It's been working for years, and I rarely even have a scar. Harley's scratch is already clear; Monty's bite is a touch red and warm, so another day with the hydrogen peroxide should do it. Not much else is happening around here until this weekend. Trombone Player and Clarinetist, two of my college buddies, will be here to celebrate the new year. That will be lively... Later, y'all.

DREAMS Are More Precious -- Enya

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Well, this year's Christmas glitch was our fault. The honey baked ham was delivered frozen. Spousal Unit took it out of the shipping container and left it on the countertop for a few hours, then put it into the refrigerator. Only he didn't put it in the refrigerator, but in the freezer. We noticed that this morning... Heated the oven to 350, turned it off, and put the ham in to thaw. It worked nicely. As usual, we overate excellent food, watched Christmas movies, and enjoyed company of family and friends. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas Day.

RE: Ever Notice?

Levi Strauss didn't put rear pockets on his denims until 1901, according to their history link. The two hours of online research I did didn't turn up anything specific about rear pockets until the turn of the 20th century.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Took me four tries, but I finally got the rhythm going on Sister's present. Finished one potholder, two to go. Think I'll give her the wonky ones, too, with a note that I did finally improve... Hot weather, warm weather, cold weather, not so cold weather, 2" of rain, wind, sunshine and short sleeves -- this is a very interesting December. Looks like Christmas Day will be shorts weather again. I like that. We harvested a good pile of sweet potatoes, and ordered a honeybaked ham. We'll roast the sweet potatoes (none of that gooey sweet marshmallow mess for us), then haul the lot to Sister's on Christmas Day, where Nephew One has taken over cooking all the rest. Definitely going to be good eats. Tall and Short Friends will fly to his sister's in Minnesota (brrrr) Wednesday, and be back in a week. Then two college buddies will join us for New Year's at Tall and Short Friends' place. We're definitely doing the party bit this year. I joined the local community band as second percussionist. That means I play everything except trap drums. Since the band doesn't actually have a glockenspiel, chimes, marimba, etc., I bought a 61-key electronic keyboard that makes about 600 different sounds. Took some practice to play glock, chimes or xylophone with one hand and jingle bells/maracas/shaker with the other, but it works. Just needed to get the muscle memory going. Last performance of the year was last Friday. Spousal Unit tried to record it, and neither his camera nor his cell phone picked up the audio. Oh, well, there will be more performances next year. In case I get distracted again (two cats who are still trying to get at each other can do that), y'all have a very Merry Christmas.

Fruitcake Makes ME Puke -- Bill Engvall

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

A friend left the door open. Harley sat next to the open door, but made no attempt to go outside. Whew. At our annual writers' group party last Friday, one guest said she would talk to her brother, who is looking for a cat. I hope she remembers to do so, and that her brother might be a good candidate to adopt Harley. She deserves so much better than we're able to provide. This character showed up this morning. I managed one photo before it noticed and dashed off. https://i.imgur.com/n1PoDTVl.jpg It's been very busy around here, but I finally have time to finish Sister's present of crocheted potholders in her preferred colors, and finish a short story for an anthology. We also will manage to get our tree up and stick all the presents under it this week, then I have a performance on Friday (joined the community band last month). In between all this, the cats get their fair share of attention (and then some). If I get too focused and forget to post here, may you all have a very Merry Christmas.

RE: Texas Fireballs

I made a batch. They were pretty good, but a bit mild, so if we do them again, I won't seed the jalapenos.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

We had kith and kin here for Thanksgiving. Harley would come out of her bedroom, look at us, and with a "Nope, not going there" look on her face would stroll back to her bedroom. Too many people, too much noise for her taste. We finally just let her be in her room, and opened the other bedroom door so Czarny could socialize. He decided he'd rather crawl under the bed covers and sleep. Harley's bounding around the house today, making up for the exercise she didn't get yesterday. Czarny's going in and out as usual. I'm trying to get Sister's Christmas present finished, and then we'll be totally done with Christmas shopping. She wants potholders in certain colors, which naturally are not the fashion. So I'm crocheting potholders in those colors for her. Had to learn a new stitch, since all I'd ever crocheted were granny squares. They may be a little wonky looking, but they'll get the job done. We won't do anything about finding a better home for Harley until after the holidays. She'll need a quiet home to get used to before she has to deal with company, like she did here. We had so hoped that each of us would have a lap cat, but they can't even be in the same room without a fight, and it's not fair to either cat. Sigh. Well, back to crocheting. Later, y'all.
