Or rather, Beatrix has it all figured out and has a whole bowl to herself. grin.
We know there are more because the other week we had Elvis(?) trying to horn in the other bowls. Or was it Lupin?
Or rather poking at folks that always want to change something after projects are finished
It was a massive project that went through a lot of changes during construction, wildly inflating the cost. I think it is a reference along the lines of “too late to change it again.”
Nod! I hate bridges in general and have had to drive over some doozies in my life. The Mich-Mac in Michigan, the Coronado in CA and one time a tall SUV over the Hudson River in high winds, while it was being repaired. I swear they used popsicle sticks for the temporary guardrail. eek!
If she was in heat while at the shelter she would have loved everyone and everything. If she was spayed there that can also trigger a last gasp hormonal cycle. But she will probably come around again. Related note, we had a neighbor who adopted someone’s “barn cat” for their barn, and they could not get over how loving and people oriented it was. (I don’t think it started life as a barn cat, frankly.) Anyway, that spring and summer the dear thing began periodically showing up over here across the road, and boy howdy was she friendly! Oh the rolling! the cuddling! The bumping! Even lap sitting outside through a thunderstorm on our porch. Adorable cat. The first thing I asked the young man once we found it was his, is was she spayed? His answer: “must be, we’ve had her since January and she hasn’t gotten pregnant yet.” (our education dollars at work here.) He kept protesting it was impossible as I patiently explained “this is a cat in heat.” You know where this story is going… Some weeks later I got a call asking if I knew anything about cats giving birth. Banging head on table face palm.
For those who care about the details, this appears to be featuring the George Washington Bridge which had just opened Oct 1931. It was a massive new type of suspension bridge, connecting the city with farm fields in New Jersey. It was a huge project as the Depression was getting underway. The inflow of jobs and cash helped stave off the effects of the worsening economy for the area.
Burt. The AV cat.
It’s supposed to be leprechaun gold, that’s why it is green. Just an artistic mash-up.
Yeah, I’ve mostly given up as well. I usually just comment on fb now. I’m glad all the folks have found a home but I am just not into wading through all the side chatter. Waving a friendly reminiscing hello.
