Let's see: so far today I've washed the cat and fed the dirty clothes. I've fetched the ducks down on the creek and listened to the pup quack. I've driven my car from under the quilts and smacked the bed down the driveway. What a life. Its all above the freezing level. Cool foggy rain delights my brain synapses. Just a few degrees lower and we'll be in the frozen soup. For now, today, I sit here maybe a few degrees above waking and smile. Cause the roads are easy. Hubby forced the living room clock to quit bonging at night and like I said, its all above freezing. Yee haw!!

Clocks that bong are a terrible thing at night. We have 51 degrees and sunny skies here. I have stripped beds and put sheets in the wash, and practiced some guitar chords but wait, no breakfast yet, gotta do that now.

@rebelann Truth: I used to wash cats as a way to make money. Sonny James needs his backside washed soon. He just cries but doesn't hurt me when I suds him down and that actually is worse than his clawing me. I fed the clothes lots of potatoes cause spuds have starch in them. I'm sorry I did not tape the quacking pup.

I wish I new how to wash kitties, Max could use a bath for certain @sallypup trouble is he may like me because he can smell that I am related to his human but I'm not so sure I'd get away with washing him.

@rebelann One day a lady called me to book a bath for her cat. I opened her apartment door and wow!! Cat threw him/her body off the apt. wall, straight at me. Good GAWD! I don't think I washed that cat. First ever that a cat used their body right off as a grenade aimed at me. Usually I have a little window in which I can talk down the cat but not that day.

When you can't sleep, a chiming clock can just about drive you crazy.

@JudyEv Good question. I wanted the clocks and I find them lovely. Hubby asked me once what I wanted for a birthday gift and I told him a curio clock even though we already had the other clock. He loves me so he bought it.

@andriaperry No can do on the coffee. It gives me heart burn. I did indulge in a little mollasses in almond milk. Good stuff.
