Sorry, I escaped to a shower only to come out in the middle of kid drama. Now I really need to get to the fabric store and then off to my cousin's daughter's birthday party.

Somebody was looking out for me today. It started raining just as we left the house to pick up the grandkids. Still raining a half an hour later. Gave them a choice of waiting to see if the rain would stop (I knew it would) or going to see Ice Age instead of going to the festival. They ended up choosing Ice Age. (They had been to the festival Fri and Sat night so they didn't miss much.) Thoroughly enjoyed Ice Age.

I found what might have been a lost cat in front of the restaurant tonight.

Hubby went as far as driving home and getting the crate. But he made it clear we couldn't keep it.

We made a phone call to the largest rescue around here (maybe the largest in the country).
They had a wait list to take a cat.

Hubby is allergic to most cats. Somehow not Scratchy, but he has long fur, not short.

The cat would have to have stayed in Rusty's crate in the garage until someone could take it in.

Rusty's crate is larger than the cages in the rescue. Big enough for a litter box and stuff.

In the end we fed the cat and left it. I hope it knows where it lives and went home. It is raining now.

I've done a tiny bit of research...it looks like there would have been a wait list to give the cat to a rescue if he didn't have a chip.

Definitely not ferrel.

I am a bad person. But it is true, hubby would have been allergic. But the cat liked me.

It is going to rain here enough to shut off the sprinkler system, but not enough to water the grass.

I'm talking about the cat in the rain that may or may not be lost.

Besides we never did go on vacation yet.

At least one.

I always liked fall the best. Not Hubby. He likes summer.

It is suppose to be hot. I went into the yard and it was ok.
Maybe I better get out with Rusty soon.

Ugh, the sprinkler is going off. That is wrong. Hope the water district guys don't pass by. Don't need a ticket

Hi, thanks for thinking about me Poof. We live a little North of central Poland, most of the tornado activity here happens in the mountains in the South. We have had some hellacious thunderstorms and high winds but no problems. We have been busy, busy, busy, things are finally slowing down a little.

My wife is done with school for the summer but as she is the principal, she needs to go to work a few hours a day.

We went a couple of weeks ago to an international choir festival in a Polish town on the Baltic Sea. There were about 25 choirs from Poland, Russia, the Ukraine, Moldavia and Korea among other places. My wife's choir won 3rd place, we were quite happy. The Moldavian choir won the top prize. I'll have to look and see where Moldavia is! The weather was terrible, cold, rain and wind but it was still nice to be on the sea, reminds me of home.

Our little Lab, Bella went to have a hysterectomy last Thursday, the next day she was running around, now she is completely normal and active. Funny, my wife took a couple of weeks to recover from hers and it was laproscopic unlike the dog! I guess dogs just don't feel what we do. Of course the dog was a little younger than my wife when she had the operation.

We have had a non-summer here, a few nice days and then rain, some cold, nice again, rinse and repeat. Send some of that hot weather here please. We are going to Tenerife in the Canary Islands in January for a week, it is never very cold there so that will be our summer holiday. Went to Grand Canaria for Christmas in '05 and it was in the 80s every day.

KT, I haven't forgot about you, now that things are a little more normal I should get your stuff soon.

AZ, sorry to hear about your ex FIL. Happy B'day Lynn. Greets to everyone.

Oh yeah, my 29 year old nephew is coming to visit in August, we will have a party for him, all PWs are invited too, 18 August at 6 p.m. Polish parties are quite good, at least ours are.

My dogs like me, that is important.

You should have been here the last two weeks. The World Choir Games were here. All kinds of choirs from all over the world. The 2014 games will be in Riga. You should make plans now. Felt sorry for them, though, temps in the hundreds some of the days.

It would be great to go to the US with my wife's choir, do you know anybody that would like to buy 35 coach class airline tickets for us? I guess Riga is a little closer. We will be going to Spain, near Barcelona for a choir festival next May. Thank goodness for Easy Jet, cheap air fare! We were talking to the folks from Korea at the festival, they invited us to a choir festival there next year. Again, money is a little problem. Besides, Polish food is a little bland, I'm not sure what Korean food would do to their digestive systems. I spent 2 1/2 years in Korea and I do miss the pleasure/pain of the hot food. I was in Warsaw this winter and ate at a Korean restaurant, it hurt so good!

Ed, glad everything is ok.

Just about caught up on my travel laundry and the front lawn is mowed. It's about 97 out so the back can wait. The question is, do I finish laundry or do I have a nap?

I'm thinking nap.

Hi Ice, thanks. I recommend the nap. I spent the afternoon prying up concrete pavers, about 18" hexagons 6" thick. There was a small parking area (800 sq feet) behind my wife's school and they want to turn it into a small playground. The pavers were just set in sand but for many years. Pry, move, pry, move. I came home and took a nap. Much better, but a little sore.

No worries Ed! I'm glad you are alright. We've actually been traveling so less mail wasn't so bad

Went through the "poster box" Orc and I have been hauling around since we got married. Outdoor Mulch For Gardening does that boy have a LOT of cat posters!!! I forgot how many he had. Going to try to find enough kid friendly interesting stuff to collage for the LEGO room. World map will take up most of one wall. We also have a box of video game posters somewhere, hmmmm...

Finally convinced him there was no way poster putty is going to work. Now I have to find some other non-damaging (although honestly a few pin holes would barely be noticeable even with the fresh coat of paint)... There is barely any texture to the wall so there are some concern that if I use a starch mixture removing with water will ruin the walls. Thoughts?

Talking about food that's hot (Ed was, at least), I'm wondering about something. My periodontist insists I have to rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash for 30 seconds twice a day. I haven't made it to 30 seconds yet. Husband and I are both alike, he can't do it either. Too hot. And neither of us can handle spicy food (zesty, southwest, buffalo, chipolte, tangy, chirozo, chimichurri). Was wondering if there was a correlation.
