    Big storm coming tonight. 2-4 or if it moves more up to 6. No one is working tomorrow so no one has to drive anywhere. Mom took this of me tonight. Have a nice evening.

    12/8 Dingoes are cathemeral animals, meaning they are awake for a few hours, sleep a few, and then wake again around the clock. They may scrounge and forage in the dark of night in urban areas and around farms, but can also be observed hunting kangaroos at midday.

  • I am still working on my tree. I wanted it painted so yesterday dad spray painted it for me. It is still slightly sticky. Mom and I have some good ideas for decorations and we can hardly wait to decorate it.

    Things are good here. Mom and Dad are finished shopping – tree is up – decorations done – my spot for napping is still available UNDER the Christmas tree…….things are good here. I\’m sure Santa has been impressed with my behavior this last year so I\’m hoping he does NOT bring me coal!

    • There is so much to do at Christmas, I am glad that your pawrents got so much done. Santa knows that you have been good this year. You feed all of us breakfast (the most important meal of the day) every single day. It will be fun to visit Santa again. Enjoy your warm cozy spot under the tree.

      Mom’s been wondering why I’ve been a bit distant lately. Not wanting much lap time. I’m not a cat to fuss and complain, but she forgot! Dad never remembers…that’s just Dad. But Mom forgot. The best day ever of my life! 😿. Six days ago on December 6, 2011. I came to my furever home. She FORGOT my GOTCHA DAY. She suddenly remembered a few minutes…[Read more]

      Mom woke up very early with a lot of pain in the shoulder she fell on. She has PT this am. She’s dreading it. If she feels like doing it, after PT, Mom has promised to put up a couple of our small Christmas trees. She has decided that since she and did will be in Athens for Christmas..not to do the big tree. Chip and I don’t mind. We like the sma…[Read more]

      • Well if your Mom’s doc says P.T. will fix it then she just has to MAKE herself go! My Dad was having bad back problems with his compressed vertebrae and our doc sent him to P.T. and it’s TONS better. Good luck!!
        • Awww that picture of your dad and Chip is adorable. Tell your mom to hang in there, P.T. helps.

          Factoid for 12/8: Mushrooms are a lot like plants, but they lack chlorophyll and have to take nutrients from other materials. Mushrooms are neither plants nor animals. They constitute their own kingdom—Fungi. These include the familiar mushroom-forming species, as well as yeasts, molds, smuts and rusts.

          Sea-Monkeys breathe through their feet.
          And that’s not the only weird thing about their anatomy: They’re born with just one eye, but grow two more upon reaching maturity.

          Dust mites have a pair of creepy, pincer-like claws near their mouth, so they look a little threatening under a microscope. But fear not: These little guys aren’t parasites like lice and bed bugs. They don’t feed on blood, and they don’t bite humans.
          That doesn’t mean dust mites are harmless, though. The problem with dust mites is actually that th…[Read more]

          Dust mites feed on the human skin cells found in dust. (They don’t care so much about the dirt, soot, and pollen that ends up in dust as well.) You shed about 1.5 grams of skin every day, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). That may not sound like much, but it’s enough to feed a million dust mites. Yes—you read that…[Read more]

          Dust mites look like microscopic spiders.. Dust mites are teensy, tiny things: They only grow to about one-quarter to one-third of a millimeter, and you can’t see them with your eyes. Under a microscope, you’d see that dust mites look like white spiders. They have eight legs, so they’re arthropods (not insects).
