I live in a small town in southern Wisconsin (population around 1600). I love animals, especially cats and dogs. I like gardening (both vegetables and flowers) and I like to read. I work in the garden center at a Walmart in Madison, WI. In the off season, I work in back-to-school, Halloween, Christmas, etc. AKA - "Seasonal". But garden season is by far my favorite.

    I agree. I like how they say in those ads “Ask your doctor if (this drug) is right for you”. Well, DUH! If the drug is right for you, wouldn’t your doctor already know about that drug and wouldn’t your doctor prescribe that drug without having to have you ask for it? And when they list possible side effects, including that this drug “may cause death”. Oh yeah, I REALLY want to use a drug like THAT, right? I wish they were not allowed to advertise prescription drugs. Maybe that would lower the cost of them, too.

    We were getting some wild weather over the past couple hours – lots of weather warnings. Our tornado siren went off, but I think they did it for the whole county, even though the threat had already passed us. We did have some wind and rain, but nothing scary here. A couple other areas had radar indicated tornados, but no confirmed touchdowns. Some wind damage in other towns and power outages, but, again, that wasn’t around here – thank goodness. The storms have all moved out of our area now.

    My little Oliver has discovered we have an upstairs in this house.

    He’s still being a little pest, trying to make friends with all the other cats. I just might have to get another kitten for him to play with.

    My little Oliver" kissed" me this morning. He was having such fun last night running loose and doing that little sideways “dance” at all the other cats, challenging them to try to get him, and the other cats were backing off rather than attacking and being mean, so I decided he was safe running loose. I woke up early this morning (about 3 hours before it was time to get up) and I decided to check on him and see how he was. I’ve never seen that little guy sleep yet. When he came out of wherever he was hiding, he was ready to play again. I was easily able to pick him up for some cuddles and was surprised when he started to lick my nose and my chin. So he is all settled down and the rabbit cage is going back out to the garage. He hasn’t come upstairs yet, so I was able to sleep (and the other cats had a way to escape from him). It’s time to go downstairs now and play with him.

    If Oliver is talking about 3:00 in the morning, Annie would be home in bed then, not doling out cat food.

    I let my new kitten (working name is Oliver, but it’s not quite definite) out of his cage when I got home from work tonight and he’s been having a blast chasing all the other cats. They have mostly jumped back away from him and none have shown serious aggression – just a little hiss here and a little growl there. Cassie almost started playing with him. But the way he’s been jumping at one cat, then another, none of them have had much chance to take a swipe at him. The first time I let him out of the cage, he disappeared briefly and I couldn’t find him. But he’s staying in sight now, so I decided he’s over his fear (I see mischief in h is eyes now, not fear) and I’m not going to put him back in the cage unless he jumps on my bed tonight and starts playing with my feet. I hope he stays downstairs tonight. The cage door is open so he can go in there if he wants to.

    We’re getting lightning and thunder right now. No rain yet. We could use some rain. I hope the thunder doesn’t scare my new kid.
