Bubba the Mental Genius

Unlike some people (Hi Brandy) I don't always have a camera on hand when the cats do something cute, so you're going to have to use your imagination.

You know when Snoopy sits on the roof-edge of his dog house and pretends to be an eagle (or vulture, or whatever)? Substitute a bathroom counter for the dog house, and Bubba the red-necked kitty for Snoopy. I glanced towards the bathroom the other day and there was Bubba sitting next to the sink staring intently at the faucets as if with the power of his mind he could get them to turn on. You see, he has suddenly taken a liking to drinking water from the sink no matter how fresh the water in the dish is. I haven't the heart to tell him he's no mental genius.

I have the laptop going - yeah!!!!!!!!

Memorial Day

Bebo and I went to the Memorial Cemetery on Sunday to visit mom and dad’s grave. The flags were out, fluttering in the breeze from the rain that sprinkled the area. There’s something about being at a cemetery in the rain, umbrellas opened against the weeping sky. Yes, it’s as if the sky were crying too. This cemetery affects me more than any other, brings a lump to my throat as I read the names of the men and women buried there. WWII, Korea, Vietnam – the list continues up to our present war. Even though a majority of these people did not die in war, they gave their all for our security, the freedoms that we take for granted every day. Monday, in the United States, is Memorial Day. A day set aside to honor those who gave their lives in time of war. Take a moment to think about those men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us.

Daddy and Uncle Bill - I miss you.

I'm Baaaaaack - sort of

At least on the PC, but we can't get the router to work so the laptop is still down. I hate this - the study gets too hot in the Summer so I don't spend a lot of time in here, but we'll work with it. For some reason my favorites list is messed up, so I'll have to add everything again. *sigh* Anyway, that's all I have to say - missed y'all and thanks for hanging in there.

It's Been a Week

I'm not talking about the internet - it'll just upset me again. I'm over at Bebo's now, paying bills and checking email. We've had quite a week, the two of us, well Bebo mainly. *gg* First she got a ticket going a wee bit fast in a school zone, and then her water pump went out on the car. That's a lot of moola to put out for someone without a job. Yep, Bebo is among the unemployed. She'd already had to put out $300 at the vet's for her cat Jack (who's fine now) and then this. That's three - right?

The new medication they put me on seems to be doing it's job - I'm not as anxious all of the time, settled down a bit. I'm still not reading a lot - found out it wasn't only the bi-polar stuff, but my eyesight. I can read for a little bit and then I have to stop because my eyes start to hurt. Yes folks, you can say it - Bailey has "over-40" eyes. It's time for bi-focals. I'm not happy about it. Shhh, I heard that. Just wait until you get old.

On Friday and Saturday we had a garage sale at the house. Got rid of a lot of junk, er, stuff. Thankfully, the weather held and we had a couple of pleasant days.

Not much more going on except for "you know what" and I ain't talking about it. Marty honey, come out of the corner. That's a good girl.

Take care and I hope to be back to you soon.

Still Off-Line

And I'm pissed! Royally. Internet withdrawal has been sheer hell. I feel so cut-off and lonely without y'all, but we're working on ways to get me back on-line. For some reason the computer will not pull up something called an ISP, or IPS something or other. They're blaming the computer which I say is balderdash since it was working fine up until THEY disconnected my internet. Anyway, we are working on the problem. I can access my email every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday - but I can't go to any blogs, myspace or open any attachments. I can also check my stuff at Bebo's (where I am today) probably about once a week.

That's it for right now - keep checking in, you never know when I'll show up.

Offline Update from Bebo

ATT sucks! They have messed up Bailey's internet access and she is down indefinitely. We're working on the problem, but have no idea how long this will take.

She can access the blog & email from other sources, so you can still chat with her, but only on a limited basis.

Will update again as necessary.

You might remember me mentioning last year that I would eventually have to switch my AT&T account from my mother's name to mine? Well, it's happening. And in order to just switch the accounts they have to disconnect my internet and re-connect it?! I have been informed that I will be off-line from Monday, May 7 through Wednesday, May 9. No.internet. no.IMing. I will be able to check my mail from work on Tuesday, but that's the only thing I can do. So it looks like you'll only be getting this post and then Spam on Friday. Here's hoping it'll only be for those three days. Sheesh.

No point wasting time. (You’re right, let’s get started)
Coffee’s on! What are u waiting for? (Is it decaf?)
Won’t forget last night. (Believe me, I won’t either.)
I’m available tonight, are you? (Nope, last night was enough, thank you.)
Prepare yourself for this. (With spam, I’m prepared for anything.)
What was that? (I don’t hear anything.)
He must have been following me when I came in here. (Who? What?)
Perian grabbed him by the shoulders just as the monster reared. (Spamzilla)
Deep calming breath now. (I’m calm, you’re the one with the monster)
The size of your dick is about a small mobile phone. (You need a visit from the big dick fairy)
The easy way to hang just about anything. (Unless you have a dick the size of a mobile phone.)
Engrossing ad lib. (Thank you, I try)
Same Time next week? (Gotcha.)

Just a little note - Wednesday night we were hit by a storm with 80 - 100 mph winds. I lost my electricity at about 7:00 p.m. and it did not come back on until around 4:00 Thursday afternoon. Yes, I had an exciting night.

Just checking In

Thought I'd give you a little update on my condition. They are going to up my anti-depressants and see if that helps with my fatigue and general ennui. I don't have the get up and go I used to have, and I could sleep all the time. I'm sleeping well at night, so that's not the problem - ergo, it's the depression. And I still don't have any interest in doing anything, even reading. If this doesn't work, they will try another prescription as this will be the highest dose of this medication that I can take. I'm tired of feeling exhausted; tired of not being able to read and my writing time has sucked. At least I think about the book - that's something, right?
