My bigger dog is upset because she usually gets a walk now but DH is working and he took them after lunch instead. But she is a creature of habit and so she is litterally sulking with her head in the corner and her back to me. It is giving me quite the chuckle, specially when she kind sighs to make sure I know she is there!

Cold as crap here and the family room is, let's say "chilly." It would be warmer but my children won't let me use the woodstove to heat since Buck died, so I'm having to rely on alternative heat sources. Minimal at best.

At any rate, at the moment I'm being "warmed" by 4 of our inside kitties, Ashley(my avatar), Sally, Chessie, and Miss Augie. all soundly asleep on my lap on top of the afghan I draped over.

Better for me than a "three-dog night!" My kitties have been taking good care of me.

Awww, Katie, that is so sweet. Much better than my Violet giving me the cold shoulder!

I am glad you have your kitties to keep you warm and to keep you company. Fur babies are so special, they know just what you need.

An email from my grandson Sammy (7 y.o.)

A 200 word run-on sentence extolling the virtues of particular "Pokemon" characters (his current passion)

Even in written form, he could not hide his enthusiasm, and if I'm not mistaken, he planted some sort of Christmas hint in my subconcious!!

I'll print it out and save it. I'll show it to him, and maybe one of his girlfriends, when he's older!

Bob, that is so precious! I am sure you now know more than you ever wanted to about Pokemon!

Yep-and before that it was "Mortal Kombat" (video game) and before that, the "littlest pet shop", and before that "Finding Nemo".....I can only guess what it will be next.

It doesn't matter what it is-I just consider myself fortunate to be able to see things through his eyes. Makes all the bad in the world a little less so-even if only for a moment.

Aren't they wonderful, I have picture all over my refrigerator and even one I had framed ..Cade painted a tropical fish for me when I was in the hospital and it hangs in my computer room now where I can see it at all times..They are so trusting and bright they make you feel as if you are the only person in the world.

nothing like a warm fat cat or dog to heat you up on a cold night......Zoe slept with me this morning........I'm now in a long robe with a pair of woolie socks and a warm jacket............
