Awake at 8:45 when Don the Lawn Mower Man showed up and was mowing under my bedroom window. Staggered out of bed--the last two days worth of parties have tired me.
Started laundry, dusted, vacuumed bedroom--remade bed, put away clean clothes.
Paid Don the Lawn Mower Man and asked him to put me on the same schedule as Jackie and Dar--every 10-12 days. There were 5 Mondays this month--at $20.00 a mow--well--I can't afford that!!
I don't know what happened, but suddenly it was noon and time for some food and then my Soap and then walked up to Merle and Pearl's. Took them their photos from yesterday and we chatted for awhile. Or, Pearl and I chatted and Merle tried to read his paper and ignore us.
Their cat, Tiger, is a big orange, fluffy cat. He is NOT friendly, but he usually runs to greet me when I walk in and let's me give me a small pet. Today, for some reason, he growled and hissed at me and hid under the dining room table. When I got ready to leave and walked past the table on my way out, he jumped out and bit my ankle. Apparently, Pearl is the only one who can touch him now. He hisses at Merle and their daughter and grand daughter's. I don't know what's wrong with him, but he has turned into Grumpy Cat.
As I came back onto the front porch, I noticed something. My succulents:
May 30, 2014
Now look like this:
Rotten rodents!! Either squirrels or chipmunks have dug them out and--see those teeth marks on the leaves? These succulents are not cheap and they have killed them off. I am so angry and discouraged!!
Maggie The Cat has mats in the fur on her back. I have brushed and brushed and brushed her and can't get them out, so today...I figured I'd cut them out and then brush her every dang day.
She was all cozy on my lap, half asleep--I was petting her on her matted area. Then when she dozed off, I reached over and got the scissors and gently started cutting. She reached around and bit me!
So I got the brush and started trying to brush them out and she jumped down and starting running around the living room. I'd catch her and pet her and then brush her and then she'd run some more--it was quite a sight.
I finally wore out from bending over trying to brush her. Meanwhile, Buddy was everywhere we were, trying to get me to brush him. When I sat down, he jumped up on my lap and I brushed him for the next half hour.
I am quite done with the Our Time dating site and any other dating site. It has been interesting to see what is "out there" and I truly feel sorry for women who are looking for a man because......there sure isn't much to choose from! For instance:
This one says his daughter is helping him because
he isn't very "computer swavy".
I think she also needs to dress him a bit better
and take another photo for his profile.
Yes--he is looking for marriage.
One thing I have noticed--not just on the dating sites, but out in public--all I see are old geezers with beards! Grey, scraggly beards! What's up with that?
