        Hello, Rocco. I am well, thanks. Others around me, not so much, but life goes on until it doesn't. :)

      I have to take my friend's Cat to the vet shortly. She has to have a blood test for her hyperthyroidism. She's 16 yo. She may need a dental.

        Thank you. She absolutely hates needles too. Luckily, she only has to have yearly exams now.

      Now it's 9:30am and 94F degrees. This does not bode well ...

        Triple digits here today. But much less wind. Looks like it may be this way all week long. Yikes.

        The worse part here is that it seems a bit humid too. Not Southern or East Coast humid, but bad enough ... and no breeze.

        Thinking cool thoughts for you even though it's hot and humid here, but that's typical Alabama weather.

        Thanks. Yes, fans + AC helps a bit, but always having to stay indoors is a bummer.

        I used to sorta sneak out and around the neighborhood at 4:30 a.m., just maintaining sanity + or -.

      I wish I were 10 people. Perhaps then I could get something accomplished.

        Do you still feel this way? I used to think two would be enough, but seems like three would be better.

        Yes, I do. I think maybe a dozen of me would be better though. I need several out working jobs to pay for all these cats! :)

      I need a vacation at home. Send my bf packing for two weeks, and just chill with the cats.

    I love cats. I seem to have a special way with them. There's a mutual understanding between cats and me. I don't think I can save them all, but I try my best to save the ones who come into my sphere of influence. I'm currently involved in trapping, spaying/neutering and returning (TNR) feral and stray cats in my friend's neighborhood where there is a great need for that sort of thing.

    My formal "job" is centered around real estate. I do a great deal of writing in my profession, and writing seems to be my only "artistic" talent. I love music, too, but I am not musically gifted. I like to listen to all kinds of music, but heavy metal is my favorite style.

    I used to be an avid book reader when I was young. Now, with the Internet and my eyesight deteriorating, I don't read books so much anymore. I read Internet articles mostly, usually those involving cats, politics or psychology. I used to read some fiction when I was younger, but mostly the classics and some contemporary horror novels (i.e. Diary of a Vampire, Vampire Lestat, etc.). I prefer non-fiction for reading. I get my fiction from television and movies.

    I'm a widow, and I lost my husband several years ago when I was in my mid 40's. We were together 20+ years. We had no children.

    After my husband's death, I spent a lot of time traveling. I visited England often and went on many road trips with a friend. We also visited Scotland, France and Spain while I was there. In the United States, I traveled to the east coast and saw the sights in New York City, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and some of Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. I finally saw the Grand Canyon about 4-5 years ago. I've spent time in Arkansas visiting relatives, and made it down to Memphis once. Most recently, I lived for six months in Oklahoma. My favorite city is San Francisco.

    I'm in a strange relationship with a complicated man, but I live alone. My tolerance for having someone around all the time is lessening as I grow older. I do enjoy my alone time, just me and my cats. I'm one of those Aspies who is indifferent to social interaction. I can take it or leave it. Mostly, I choose to leave it. Yet, I do enjoy socializing on the Internet.

    Signature

    Humor is the thread by which my sanity dangles.
