Lenny, I don't want to be young again. I'm enjoying my new life, retirement way too much. Not to pat myself on the back, but I'm still in excellent health and shape. What's weird is I don't know who the hell the old fart is that is starring back at me every time I look in the mirror. 😂

Dave,it is great that you are in excellent health and shape.I would not mind what I looked like in the mirror if I was healthy.

Tonight’s dinner was Chicken Enchiladas with a Avocado Margarita like the ones at Sabor. Delicious

We had steak street tocos with avocado.  They include various stuff to add to the tacos 🌮 like onions, lime juice, etc but one item they throw in is sliced up radishes. Only place I know that includes radishes with tacos.

My short term memory is shot.My long term memory is great.

Short term memory includes COVID, lockdowns, divided country. 
Long term includes happy days and good friends. 
Maybe there’s a reason we retain the long ago memories!

For everyone who was so helpful in making me feel better about poisoning my cats 🙀😢 I’m happy to report that around 7 pm they started to act like their usual selves.  Diana started playing with her ball/scratcher pad toy and Minnie started trotting around nudging everything.  I think there may be midair leaping and batting Temptations down with one paw later. 😊🥰

 

Thanks again for all the support.  It really really helped me.

Ok those of you who know how to do all the technosavy set up answer me this.  

 

Is it possible to start a thread on your iPhone. And 

If so how?   
 

I want to do one on RCI.

Go to the main page of the board you want to start a thread on. Just above the list of threads you should see a blue banner that says "Start New Topic". Tap on it.

My dear friend Ms. Swift is having a party tonight. I forgot to check the mailbox today. I know my invitation is in there.

Just show up at the door with an empty measuring cup say "hi neighbor" and say you just wanted to introduce yourself and borrow a cup of sugar.  LOL

I took both our cats to the vet yesterday for their annuals.  Both are so sweet and let you put them in the carriers.  Nothing more than mild squirming at the vet when being examined.  They had a rabies and another vaccine and a dose of very expensive flea topical drugs.  (Not going to use that pricey product again $62 per cat for a dose that lasts 3 months!  They are totally inside cats so I’m not sure why I’m even doing flea meds…no evidence of fleas on them.)

 

But in the way home poor Minnie threw up in her carrier…then again at home and was breathing very heavy…I called the vet and they said to bring her back.  I did and everything looked fine…they chalked it up to a bad car ride experience.  But both cats are not their normal selves.  Both are lethargic.  Minnie slept on my pillow all night whereas she normally comes and goes.  Diana didn’t come upstairs at all during the night, extremely unusual…and didn’t come up when she heard me get up.  She also didn’t eat breakfast.

 

I wouldn’t think a topical flea med would have such an effect…but nor do I think a rabies shot would either!!  Here I thought I was doing the best for them as I love them so much for getting me through covid and several deaths of friends and family…and instead I feel I poisoned them!

 

I’m sure they’ll be over whatever it is in a day or so but I feel terrible!

Helen I’m so sorry to hear about your kitties. That must be awful. Hope they are feeling better. We have used Revolution in the past and have had good results with it. If you just see one or two fleas comb them with a flea comb several times a day and see if that works first. We will get the prescription from the vet and then get it online. It’s much cheaper thIs way.

Thanks for asking Dani.

The distance reading lens is equal with the other eye.

This is the first time in 50 years the eyes have been equal without glasses.

So far I am delighted with the result.

Graham.

 

Really happy to hear your surgery worked so well.

Avocado margarita? 🤔 I love avocados, but I’m not so sure about it in a drink. Does it have much of an avocado taste?

Like @Ocean Boysaid.  Also CC has a section where you can test out posting.  If you try it out before cruisin, you can make sure your phone has your password saved and if you need any help after trying you can ask.  Sometimes when posting from a phone, CC can be a bit more glitchy.

Thank you.

 

Also one more question.

 

Is there anyway to pre-write a post and save it for later.

 

I have something in the works that involves a little lets say background information.

 

TY

We are heading up to JH early Monday morning for a few days. We'll be there NLT 11:00 AM. At 1:00 PM we'll be sitting in the Cowboy Bar having a couple of drinks. Then about 4:00 PM we'll be heading over to Merry Piglets for dinner. Good food, drinks and atmosphere. 🍻🍹🌮 

 

Ready to get on a plane and join you...sound fantabulous!  Have a great time...but don't need to tell you that...I already know you will!   Cheers!  🥂

Sigh...me too.  Don't want to go back to "that age" again and lose what I know now.  Though going back to the body of youth I had...now that could be a dangerous combination.  😄

Yep.... Though some experts say that the 3rd shot will keep longer....

 

Huge disappointment that the 2 first shots kept only 5-6 months. Yes, it seems that Moderna "lasts" longer than Pfizer.

 

In the end, if 1-2 shots per year will enable us to get our lives back, I'm all IN.

 

 

+1 on that!!  Just waiting another couple of weeks to get my Moderna booster.

I would write it to a document on your phone. When you are ready to post it to CC simply copy and paste the text.

That is such a relief they are doing better!!  Thanks for update and posting this precious picture.  I was about to post a question to you as to how they are doing.  Happy they are doing well now.  

 

You are a good cat Momma!  Purrrrr......

She had her first scolding today.  Plants are off limits.  I just love her so much it is hard to be stern.  LOL

 

Katie was so funny, she would actually go for the plants just to get attention.  So I got rid of all my house plants inside.  Went to plastic plants.  

 

So what did she do?  The year before she passed...she started chewing on the tips of the plastic plants!!  Again...wanting attention.  How do you scold a 16 year old cat that has been doing that all her life.  😉   

 

Soooo, I painted the tips of the plastic plants with Dawn dish detergent.  Problem solved. Yuck Momma!  Patooie!!  🙀
