Caturday Confessions

Hello Effurybody and Effurykitty! 

It's Caturday, and Mummy has a confession to make, don't you Mummy?

"Oh, I don't think so Gracie, what are you talking about?"

You know, about you bein' an addik.......  Tell the people what you are addikted to.....   Like something that is keeping you from telling our stories, because you are busy doing your addiktion thing on the computer...

"Oh, you mean shopping on  That's not an addiktion, that's a necessity"

No, I mean when you say, "OK, just one more game and then I'll go to bed"  ....Admit it Mummy, you are addikted to (here it is folks - she is telling my secrets)  Computer Solitaire...........

Yup, plain old computer Solitaire has got me in it's grips - you know, the one at the top of the list when you click on the "Start" menu on your PC- not online or anything - just plain old Solitaire...I can sure see how people can get into trouble with gambling.  You think, just one more game and I'll win the next one. 

Holy cow!

Who'd a thought?

So, at some point last summer, our water started to taste like dirt, or mold, or something icky to me - and since I asked The Shepherd and he didn't notice anything, and the pipes in our house are the same ones that came with the house, I was perplexed.

But I mentioned it at work and one of the ladies that I work with said, "Oh, that's because of the algae blooms on Lake Whatcom (our water source) and they have been putting lots of extra chlorine in the water to get rid of it."  Well, makes sense, I guess - but in the meantime - what to do. 

Then, one day I was walking through the local drugstore and wandered down the small appliance aisle - and what did I find, but a Britta water filter pitcher.  It was under $30 - what could I lose and if it really worked, I would gain - good tasting water.  Who'd a thought that it would be so easy...

I was truly stunned that this little pitcher with it's charcoal filter would deliver what it says - Great tasting water -

So I found myself some BPA free bottles and keep a filled one in the bathroom for teeth washing and taking pills.  And those swigs of water that you need to drink in the middle of the night...

Who'd a thought that it would be so easy.  Britta's got my vote. (well so do the new Lay's Bacon Mac & Cheese flavored potato chips but that's a whole 'nuther story)

Happy Birthday to the "Kittens"

Hey Mummy, we're not Kittens any more, in fact, in people years we are 4, but in Cat years, we are the ripe old age of 32!

And you are very Handsome too (I can say that, I'm their Mummy)

They have grown so much.  

When we got George and Gracie in July 2011, I was told they were born in the "middle of October 2010" but the lady I got them from did not know the exact date.

I decided that 10-10-10 would be a very auspicious date for the birthday of my kitties.  Don't you think that was a good date to pick? 

Happy birthday my babies.
