50 degrees F/11 C this morning and no wonder I woke up chilled after leaving the fan on all night. The lower temps, of course, have both of the cats spasticating all over the place...acting like a pair of three month old kittens. Emoci caught two more frogs yesterday...Leopard frogs this time. I think they might be moving a bit slower because of cooler temps, which is giving her an advantage. Cardiologist appointment is a few hours, trying to straighten out the mess that got started back in March when this Doctor was waiting on tests that Doctor had ordered and this Doctor sent lab work over there but they weren't doing any so they sent it over there and they weren't doing it either and no one knew anything about nothing. *sips coughee* Meanwhile back at the ranch...

Good morning JJ, pretty cold here too in the morning, but now it's warm and sticky. The cat of my neighbor brought me a little snake as a gift yesterday. I wonder why cats always have to offer you something disgusting. Good luck with your cardiologist appointment.

@myklj999 I was going to remove and store the fan, but I waited. I am glad because this afternoon is too warm.

It's in the seventies here. All of the added fun of a category two hurricane as well. Good luck at your appointment.

@myklj999 It's not even a real hurricane. I mean it is. But its nothing compared to what they were trying to make it out to be. Michael in 2018 was a cat 4, although they decided afterwards that it was more like a cat 5 when it hit. This was a cat 2. But Covid has nothing to do with the hurricane.

@thislittlepennyearns Of course it does. Hurricanes breed COVID viruses. Didn't you know? Then the 5G tower radiation makes it mutate into murder hornets. You must not have paid much attention in Biology.

May I improve your title ? "La casa del caballero Ratcliffe". Caballero is gentleman, you can replace it by senor which is Mr if gentleman seems too aristocratic for you. Or "la casa Ratcliffe", but del followed directly by a name is not correct, you need a qualifier before the name. It can be an adjective, what about "La casa del Gran Ratcliffe", the Great Ratcliffe's house ? This said I wish to the Great Ratcliffe to have a great and healthy heart.

@myklj999 That isn't terrible news. That reminds me that I have to call my dr to book my next appointment. Given the fact that they get paid when they see us, shouldn't they be calling us? I hate calling and waiting in que.
