    9/30 Does change in air pressure cause wind?

    Hey everybody. 66 and sunny. Garfield went to the vet in the am. They found an eye ulcer. He had this in both eyes many years ago and almost lost his eyes to the ulcers. I went and hid. I was not going to go. No way! Quiet so far today. Kind of nice. Hope everyone is safe. A FB friend of mom’s lost everything including her home to the storm in…[Read more]

    • I hope that Garfield’s eye is OK. It is sad that your friend lost everything. I am glad that she has her animals and that she is OK. I hope she can get some help from the government. Glad that your neighbors are quiet.
      • That is so sad about your mom’s friend, Jake, but thank goodness she and her pets are OK.
        I hope Garfield can get treated for his eye condition.

        9/30 – Flamingos are not pink. They are born grey, their diet of brine shrimp and blue green algae contains a natural pink dye called canthaxanthin that makes their feathers pink.
