What’s on your mind?
happy thursday pups!
How lovely! Hey Suzanne!
hey ce — i find it very soothing :) how’s cleveland tonight?
MrCE and I are totally avoiding all news and tv hell. Spent hours on the deck, and then when mosquitos chased us away, back inside watching Anthony Bourdain.
i’ve been doing news avoidance myself ce. too bad about the mosquitoes — tis the time of year that i wish my covered front porch was screened… am thankful that i have a front screen door this summer :) its been wonderful being able to keep that door open without all the little (and not so little) fly-ins
hey hey coach! how’s houston tonight?
Houston is hot. So what else is new.
WE have been warned to take extra precautions against mosquitoes; west nile is in town.
yuck — nasty bug for sure
Jake caught a squirrel today. Left it in the garage for me to find when I got home
oh double yuck! bailey cat used to leave me little presents like that at the coast house. token would love to catch a squirrel but he’s more interested in trying to catch one of the little birds at the bird feeder.
Jake is an Australian Shepard mix. He is still a pup, 7 – 8 months. He is a rescue dog, rescued from the middle of the highway by a workmate.
Family dog is Moby. He is about 9. Yellow lab /cocker spaniel mix. He barks and chases but I have never known him to actually catch anything.
he’s a lot bigger than token who is maintaining his 12lb trim figure thanks to weight maintenance dog food this past year. he thinks he could get a bird yanno — since they are little like him. he also thinks he is part cat.
token gets in trouble if he tries to chase cats. i know that he’s only wanting to go up to them and say hi via nose bump but they don’t know that and take off lickity split. he gets all upset when he gets a b-a-d-d-o-g
Moby is about 40 #’s, maybe a little bigger with his middle aged spread. supposed to be on lo-cal dog food. Jake was about 30 #’s when we got him but passed 40 a couple of weeks ago.
Moby will chase anything small and furry. Took a long time to accept Jake.
i’ll bet! token is 8 now and would have a hard time accepting another pet. he gives me a harsh look and sniffs me when i come home from jen’s, smelling ‘like another dog’….
On another note, my electric co tells me I used 100kwh less than the previous week.
Good evening, Suz..! Hiya, Christine, Coach Bill & lln pups..!
Are you still having some cooler weather, Suz? Tied a record at 104 here yesterday but rained today, everything is now cooled off to the low 70′s, a welcome relief.
yay! you get weekly notices? that’s gotta help with budget planning when it is so hot
hey past — yup, still nice 70′s in the day and currently 61 outside. hope it gets down into the 50′s — prime sleeping temps. how long will your cooler temp last?
We know from experience that electric bills go up as much as $100 per month in July, August and September.
We won’t see a temp below 70 until September.
mom in az has horrible electric bills. had bad ones when they lived in palm springs too. i’ll get the past month’s electric bill next week or so and will find out how expensive it was when i was running the a/c when it was hot. hopefully not to expensive. i’ve been real pleased with my elec rates up here.
i’m the outcast in the family living up here where its cooler. mom and sister live in az and bro lives in san jose but wants to retire in lousianna because he loves their weather.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! I just put the munchkin to sleep and I’m a free agent for the nite…! ;-)
aloha tut — got new video of the munchkin?
looks like only 1 day. Forecast is 88 for tomorrow, then rising to 95 by Sunday. But scattered showers throughout the valley both Sat & Sun, so could be relatively nice in the places it rains.
Molly Ivins once said that the only reason people don’t realize how bad things are in Texas is because we are right next to our very own third world state…Louisiana!
fingers and toes crossed — unless of course, you plan on enjoying outdoor activities this weekend
and they have mississippi next door on the other side
I will have some when my eldest finally downloads them and sends’em to me…! Right now, her and her sister are headed back from Hilo town and the reason why I’m babysitting tonite…! ;-)
sweet — looking forward to seeing how big he’s gotten… jules is still quite petite – always has been and your little guy has been big from the get go.
*heh* Which subsequently borders the worst state in the Union… Mississippi…! ;-)
Dangnabbit, I owe ya another Latte, eh…? ;-)
yup :) a vanilla latte, double, with dense foam if you don’t mind
Incoming… Btw, it’s been gorgeous down here with a steady sea breeze keeping it nice and comfy…! My daughters told me it was hot and sultry in Hilo town…! ;-)
*laughing* thanks dood. i love sea breezes in the summertime….. there’s just something special about an afternoon breeze that comes up right when ya want it too and keeping it just the way ya like it. so you are not in hilo town??? are ya still down at the vacation place?
tis about time for me to head out pups. thank you for letting me hang out here with ya tonight.
I tell ya I’m gonna need a vacay after this vacation…! Sweet dreams, Suz…! *g*
Hey, that’s Lisa Hannigan singing harmony on the vid. She’s got some great songs including one I discovered here at Late Late I think:
I Don’t Know
Sleep well, Suz.!
hey pun — wow, i missed that! thanks dood
