People born in December and January get slighted.

I always buy and then decide what is for birthdays and what is for Christmas.

Marissa is much more a people person that the rest of my family. JustJr, MrJust and I are introverts. Marissa knows everyone and thinks they are her best friend. :)

I’m trying to convince her that this year is the last BD party. I’m sure she will start making plans next November.

I just love this talk about pie.
A slice of Jaycee’s coconut cream would do me fine:)
Then again, cherry pie was once my favorite, and that was with scoops of chocolate chip ice cream on top!!

Happy Pie Day..I like every kind of pie
My daughter makes a yummy chocolate chess pie..

I am busy providing a hideaway for my two kittens that are being
spayed tomorrow..I have a very clean closet floor now where I
will put fresh bedding for them..(I will be trying to keep them
isolated and quiet for awhile)I am washing everything they ever
lounge on..I must keep my adult cat away from them when they
get home..Animals are not nice to weakened animals I've been
warned..
Enjoying the poetry and graphics while I take a breather.

Oh Meg ... that chocolate pie look scrumptious. My favorite pie is chocolate cream but your pie might kick mine to second place.

Hope you are having a great day. Hugs for the kittens.

JustJr brought his kitten with him when he came for Thanksgiving. Cissy and Marissa had a great time. I spent lots of time, picking up what Cissy tossed off the desk. She is a nuisance! As I tried to hide stuff from her, she kept trying to grab it away from me. Kittens are fun!

Have a great day,

It takes awhile but I am gradually getting “NO” across ..most of the time..They are so curious. Making the bed requires closing them out..They LOVE grabbing the sheets as you try to put them on..My little one will put anything small in her mouth so I really have to watch it.
Your desk stuff is new and anything new is fair game..I laugh at trying to put Christmas decor out.

My daughter makes great desserts and biscuits..I gained weight when I stayed with her.

It makes me want to make a cream pie. That one looks especially delicious. I meant to add Happy Pie Day and the old brain flipped back to my work!!

....do I want chocolate pie or a two-crust fruit pie, or banana creme pie, or German Chocolate Cake, or Key Lime Pie..

Exactly the reason why we don't go to Furr's except for Thanksgiving dinner! LOL!

Isn’t it the truth? When December 1 hits, I know I can’t put off anything for a moment. Everyone is doing the same all over the world. After I get the house the way I want it, and the decorating done, and all the gifts wrapped, I can enjoy the (few hours) before Christmas~~LOL~~

Seriously, I like to have it all done the week before Christmas and enjoy for a while, then get ready for the Christmas Eve party.

It is my first experience with female kitties so I am a bit nervous..It takes them longer to recover..I had to cut out feeding at 6..Their bowls are empty..I am feeding Silky in the garage and I have some very confused kittens..and Silky is not happy either.. I feel like an ogre..but know it is necessary.
Wish them and me luck!(((HUGS)))

My guys come home and not too much later get all their energy back and run around for a few hours. Next day after everything's worn off they are sleepy and will sleep a lot that day. I had one cat sleep heavily for two days. Otherwise they get over it fast.

My favorite is apple pi ala mode.

Gotta keep it good tonight because it’s hanging out with Venus and wants to look good.

Look out the window. Mars is chaperoning. They won’t be any closer than tonight. Isn’t it romantic?

Thanks for the information..I can read all about it but like to hear it from someone I know..I am just trying to get through the withholding food period..I had no idea it was going to bother me.. Where did yours sleep it off and how were your adult cats with the ones who had surgery?

I LOVE Apple pie..especially Dutch apple..with cinnamon whipped cream.(another one my daughter does well..yummy.)

Unlike the how-to published writers, I'm not getting paid by the word and don't pad the facts into obscurity.

It all depend on the dose of anesthesia and their reaction to it, but that's the general rule of thumb.

Denying them food shouldn't bother you; you're preserving their health and their very lives. To stay leader of the pride you have to act like one.

I don't have any pie, will Pop Tarts do?

They seem fine now..and I realize the crowd in the kitchen got to me for a bit..It did not help that I was out feeding the raccoons. soon after..LOL
I like the vets at this hospital and trust they will do well..Little one will have a hernia fixed, too.They keep them there til late afternoon.

Pop tarts absolutely will not do!

Anything to do with the moon or stars is romantic, girl! That graphic though is so unique! You're good at finding them! When I found this one, there was a note beside it saying 'this belongs to Lady Jag' but I took it anyway.

This picture was taken in June '08.

Yes this is our grandson and foster daughter, now adopted daughter, who we have had since 6 months of age.

She is special needs but is a amazing girl, and hopefully will graduate from High School in June'09 and go on to college. We have adopted 4 others who are grown, one of whom is our grandson's mama. Along with them we have two bio adult children. Ten grandchildren and one on the way.

Mumbai

Black and cold the dawning morn
In silence the tattered heart is torn
In silence too, the soul so bruised at last
That it will not heal, as so oft in times past

Soft silent tears, track cheeks grown pale
Each drop, a separate and so terrible tale
Of real trust lost and hope stilled by wrath
As peace is now an image on another path

Evil is, and evil does, until its rage is run
And then a bitter time to come till done
As man recoils, and rebuilds his world
Once the flags of hate and evil be furled

Stones to tell the story, upon a pale green
Of hearts so vile, seeped in mindless mean
And cruelty we’ll overlook, not see it again
And we will with open eyes, see not their sin

Repeat our history, as if in a sad loop of pain
And so we’ll stand, as others are softly lain
What fools we are to let this be the only way
And sad as well the price the innocent will pay

What a wonderful family you all do have. Those children were lucky to have found you two and I imagine you feel the same way. Wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas and just the best of everything in life.
