Happy Caturday, Everyone!

Been hectic in Fresno.

We went to Avila Beach for 4 days before Thanksgiving. We had a great time and good food. One day, we drove to Santa Barbara ... we hadn’t been there for years. We visited the Mission and let Marissa play on the beach. We got home late Wednesday so I didn’t get Thanksgiving dinner started until Thursday morning.

Now I have been working on trying to evict the people at my BIL’s place. What a mess. All laws seem to favor the non paying tenants. I talked to an attorney, since there are 3 houses to evict from, it would cost me $3300. I had my niece serve papers yesterday. Hope they move so I don’t have to continue with these people.

Hope everyone is well. I miss y’all. I’ll try to get back to posting more often.

Have a beautiful Caturday/Dogurday.

LOL (she’s a line butter). We’ve met, here’s what we talked about, Jason Statham and his charms.

I’ve seen every Jason Statham movie that’s been out since we freepmailed about him and your son said it was weird or hilarious or something that us “old ladies” have a crush on a movie star. Hee Hee. I rented “Safe” on Dish Net recently. Also watched an old low “one star” free movie of his on Dish last weekend. It was set in England at medival times. It was a fairly bad script but I watched anyway just to see and hear his lovely voice for 2 hours.

I assume you are still similarly afflicted?

HAPPY CATURDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!



Gus - The Theatre Cat
A Poem By T S Eliot


Gus is the Cat at the Theatre Door.
His name, as I ought to have told you before,
Is really Asparagus. That's such a fuss
To pronounce, that we usually call him just Gus.
His coat's very shabby, he's thin as a rake,
And he suffers from palsy that makes his paw shake.
Yet he was, in his youth, quite the smartest of Cats--
But no longer a terror to mice and to rats.
For he isn't the Cat that he was in his prime;
Though his name was quite famous, he says, in its time.
And whenever he joins his friends at their club
(Which takes place at the back of the neighbouring pub)
He loves to regale them, if someone else pays,
With anecdotes drawn from his palmiest days.
For he once was a Star of the highest degree--
He has acted with Irving, he's acted with Tree.
And he likes to relate his success on the Halls,
Where the Gallery once gave him seven cat-calls.
But his grandest creation, as he loves to tell,
Was Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell.

"I have played," so he says, "every possible part,
And I used to know seventy speeches by heart.
I'd extemporize back-chat, I knew how to gag,
And I knew how to let the cat out of the bag.
I knew how to act with my back and my tail;
With an hour of rehearsal, I never could fail.
I'd a voice that would soften the hardest of hearts,
Whether I took the lead, or in character parts.
I have sat by the bedside of poor Little Nell;
When the Curfew was rung, then I swung on the bell.
In the Pantomime season I never fell flat,
And I once understudied Dick Whittington's Cat.
But my grandest creation, as history will tell,
Was Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell."

Then, if someone will give him a toothful of gin,
He will tell how he once played a part in East Lynne.
At a Shakespeare performance he once walked on pat,
When some actor suggested the need for a cat.
He once played a Tiger--could do it again--
Which an Indian Colonel purused down a drain.
And he thinks that he still can, much better than most,
Produce blood-curdling noises to bring on the Ghost.
And he once crossed the stage on a telegraph wire,
To rescue a child when a house was on fire.
And he says: "Now then kittens, they do not get trained
As we did in the days when Victoria reigned.
They never get drilled in a regular troupe, And they think they are smart, just to jump through a hoop."
And he'll say, as he scratches himself with his claws,
"Well, the Theatre's certainly not what it was.
These modern productions are all very well,
But there's nothing to equal, from what I hear tell,
That moment of mystery
When I made history
As Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell."

Hi, Amy. So sorry to hear you are still having to deal with your BIL's estate. Isn't there someone else who can handle it? He didn't name you executrix, did he?

You are right about the law being in favor of the renter rather than the property owner. There was a movie about that I saw years ago. Took place in San Francisco, where this guy would intentionally rent a house and then take the owner to court for one reason or another and then end up owning the property. Can't remember the name of it.

Anyway, there is certainly no reason you should have to pay to evict people from his houses. I sure hope you get this resolved quickly.

I envy you getting to visit Santa Barbara. It's one of my favorite cities in the world. Not far away, but we never seem to get over there. We were married in the Methodist church just a mile or so down the hill from the Mission. :-)

Happy Caturday/Dogurday to you too!

Hi MEGs. What a sweet kitty in the snow! We aren't quite at 80 degrees here, but the only snow we are likely to see this winter is in these posts at AP.

Actually, it's raining here. Damp, grey and cold. Tomorrow I will be decorating the living room tree. It will be our only decorations, other than some wreaths on the garage and front door. We are going to our son's house this Christmas so no point in decking all the halls here.

Happy caturday backatcha!
