Good thing?

I finally decided to join Facebook. Figured what the hell and I could look for someone I've been looking for for years. Found him on the first search. Wow. I was nervous about contacting him and turns out he had some issues with how we split too. Go figure huh? He's still as handsome as ever and has the most adorable daughter. And Facebook keeps coming up with people it thinks I should know... so weird! So long as no one from work shows up I'm good. That's why I didn't use my actual name... only two or three people at work have my email so I should be pretty safe. I know the Major has an account and I do not want to feel like he's looking over my shoulder. Thinking I'll look for people from work and start blocking them... just in case... lol!!

Vamp Still in Progress

Well, I found a design I like, but just found an issue... the bar at the top that gives me access to the dashboard isn't there... lmao! I have to go to blogger.com to get to the link to make a post... don't know if I'll bother to find a way to fix it or just leave it like it is... not like I'm in here that much...

Still tending the outdoor kitties. Got an email in to my vet to see if they know of anyone who does trap neuter release in the area. Also if they do or know of anyone who does spays/neuters for ferals. I don't have the means to keep them confined after surgery... that's a bigger issue for me than the cost really. I don't want to trap them and have it done only to release them and have something go wrong and there be nothing I can do about it. It would be a girl that took up here and she would have a daughter... ~sigh~ Spot is a gorgeous little girl. She's getting braver about not running when I come out, but still no way to get hold of her. I've taken one of the girls wands out and tried to play with her a bit, but she isn't interested. They play with the stuffed mice I put outside, but only when I'm not looking... lol!! Her brother Tabb is still extremely skittish. They see me petting Gremlin when he comes by but don't seem interested in getting any pets themselves.

Nothing much else going around here. Getting ready for the cook-out in September. It's a community/friend/family thing we have every year. We used to cook a whole pig, but one year we got a bad one. After that disaster we started just getting big hams and cooking those. It starts on Friday afternoon and goes all night with the BBQ ready around noon that Saturday. The fun part is that night and hanging out. That Saturday is the only time I see a lot of my relatives. I've got a couple of friends I invite from work who show sometimes. No Catster families live that close to me so none of them to come.

Off to be bored I guess. Kind of sucks that school has started back...

In Progress

It's not very pretty right now, but I'm working on vamping this place up just a bit. I'm not in often, but as I like playing with graphics, it'll be a fun thing to come in once in a while and goof. Trying to get it to three columns... that part isn't going well at the moment... lol! But I've gotten a couple of graphics changed out. Got a new little pawprint background on the right and I've changed that plain little arrow by each post title to a cute little pointing finger I made. :)

And I don't see a post on this... guess I never got around to getting in here. My sister made an etsy site! http://catcessities.etsy.com. She's made four sales so far. She's sold two beds on ebay and two in Catster auctions to raise money. Three of the four went to the family of Taz, Ko, etc... they recently lost a member, Boots. I do hope Taz, Ko and Marvel Ann shared their nap mats with him and he liked. Hazel Lucy got the other as a gift from another kitty for all she and her mom do on Catster. So far the reviews are good. The kitties are enjoying the nap mats/toys. Still trying to get the word out so maybe she'll sell more. Smudge is loving it though... he really enjoys Debbie crocheting... he gets to play with the yarn and snatches the occasional toy for himself... lol!
