Grey one is going to be 15 this year, tortoise shell will be 12 or 13...can't remember exactly when she joined the family.



Scratchy would love to have another cat in the house. He lived with other cats when he was young.

I think, two cats, two dogs and two rats would be perfect.

Hubby thinks one cat and a dog are more than enough.

Daughters cat was just getting to the point that we would leave the door open for her to see our cat and dog.
Looked like the cats were ready to mix.
Didn't look like daughters cat was ready to mix with Rusty.
That cat never grew up with other animals.

It wasn't very human friendly. I would like a cuddly cat.

Well...Maggie is cuddly, with me. Puck is cuddly, with me.

With anyone else...results may vary.

Both like dougall. Neither cat fully trusts the kids, but both have decided the eldest is less offensive.

Both grew up with other pets--Puck's first best friend was a puppy, a mutt named Jasper. They played chase, and she learned to swat like a cat. Then I got another dog, and she dumped him. He liked the 2nd cat, Stanley, but he died at 18 months--kidney failure. Puck spent a lot of time trying to get the other dogs to play chase. He never liked Maggie, from the day she arrived. He thinks she is the rudest possible companion, and he's likely right.

I'm the only one in my neighborhood that shovels my driveway. But son saw the difference the next day when ours was dry and others were thick ice. And ours has a slight incline.



Please remember husband is 69 years old. Ask any doctor. He should not be shoveling heavy snow. I just told him I'd be out in a few minutes to help. I definitely should not be shoveling snow. So if you don't hear from me, I'm the one that had the heart attack.

We have robotic vacuums, mops, and lawn mowers. We should have robotic snow blowers.

You can have heaters installed in concrete that will melt it off. Does that count?

Agree, neither poofdude nor pooflady should be shoveling. find someone else to do it!

We know people that had the heated driveway. The first time it snowed and they turned it on their electric bill was so high they never did it again.

I don't know how much it costs to run. The people I 'know' that have it live in Vail, CO, so the cost of snow removal might be high enough that this is roughly close to the same or cheaper.

The lawn service does it, but they may take a day or more to get to you.

Hubby did the next door neighbors, who's kids own the lawn service.
I guess they are finally too old.
This time the lawn service truck just came. He didn't do my apron. Matter of fact, he left his parents snow where the snow plow will plow it back into my driveway.

Those guys ran that business out of their parents house for 20 years. For 20 years their employees cars were in front of my house. The employees sat under the tree on my lawn, waiting to get paid, which became a problem when my daughter got older. Other neighbor who speaks spanish, yelled at them for comments they were making about daughter and her friends.

None of this matters, except I think I am entitled to get my apron plowed for free because of it!
It takes less than a minute with the plow.

That looked like an inch of snow.
You need something that will do wet, heavy snow. Like what the snow plough leaves in your driveway.

Rusty insisted on a walk.

The neighbors plow have the snow so I can only get into my driveway from one direction.

They have been doing plowing since they were in high school. (They had a real lawn service when we moved in. They got to customers dragging mowers behind on their bikes.)

He didn't realize he blocked my driveway and the city plow will totally block me in??????

That looks like something LB would have built. MamaChev and I purchased a snow blower 2 years before LB passed. He loved machinery. Since then, we have been too wimpy to fire it up. If it's too much for us to shovel, we pay the guy down the street to plow. MamaChev is 67, so I have concern about her out there shoveling, too. We should put the snowblower on Craigslist, I doubt we'll ever man-up and run it.

P.S. Mavyn - lovely kittehs!

I think I'd try the snow blower if someone would show me how to use it. Looks kind of fun.

I know we could do it if we just tried! We are more mechanically inclined than some ladies. MamaChev does the lawn mowing at our house. What is a snowblower, but a stand-up lawn mower? She's just afraid it'll get away from her and she'll ram into my car!

Jeopardy currently is the Battle of the Decades, this one is the '80s. But when introducing some of the contestants, they won in the '90s. Any clues?

wikipedia says the decades aren't divided at the 10s. it's the first 10 years of jeopardy, starting at 1984, followed by the second and third groups of 10 years.

45 contestants who had all competed in past Tournaments of Champions are divided into decades of Jeopardy! (1984-1993, 1994-2003, 2004-2013)

Because of both parents being out of town today and tomorrow, we will have granddaughters. However, no one expected a snow day. (Ice) Trying to decide what to do with them. Possibly a movie, Nut Job or Lego seems to be the choices. Don't think I can talk them into Monuments Men. Perhaps make some kind of dessert. Cookies? Has to be something two can work on.

Lego movie might be crowded. I can't wait to see it though. It's getting great ratings from the Europe release.

It's snowing here today too. Not much but its sticking right away to the streets so working from home. Not worth the risk of the long drive.

If they haven't seen Frozen, it's really good. Son & I both liked it.

When we had snow days, you couldn't go anywhere because there was too much snow.
If the car could be on the road, there was school.

Now it seems if it snows overnight, there is a snow day.
Thank you Mayor Lindsay for our snow week!
You should have run again. There may have been enough 18 year olds voting for you to get back in!

Found out they've seen Frozen, one of them twice. Odd - two theaters and the only showing of Lego is 10:00 p.m.

This one's because of ice. The back roads are probably a mess. Husband's out chipping away on the driveway. He managed to get the passenger side door open on his truck so he could start it. It's covered in ice.
