My friend, Greg, the "Pepper Master" was on the local news. I'm really pleased that CTV decided to do a story on him and his hot sauces.

My kitchen sink isn't leaking anymore! It took two calls to Kohler, and three shipments from them, to finally find all of the parts that needed replacing. I no longer have to have the spray head in the "dead swan" position (the faucet spout IS the sprayer, too) and I can take the drip-catching pan from under the sink. It took so long to get it fixed that even Himself was getting annoyed by it! Needless to say, he fixed it right after the last part showed up today.

Funny Story

I'm sitting at my little desk and DH is looking out the window,
eyes as big as saucers,
he grabs my arm and drags me over to the glass sliding door in the back ...
"Look! Look! A Bobcat! He's coming right up to our door!"
The animal was panting, very obviously hot, and he plops himself down
on the I'm sure, nice, cool concrete slab in front of our door to rest.
So I look, and I look and I look a little closer,
UMMMM
He whispers to me, "it's a young one!"
well, it doesn't have a bobbed tail,
it doesn't have the long tufts on his ears,
... he's got a long tail, he looks to be about 10 pounds or so,
and he has gray strips ...
"Dear, that's a CAT! It's called a gray tabby!"

Don't ever take him to live on a ranch or farm. I do hope he knows the difference between a horse and a cow.

A friend asked a young child, about five, if she knew could tell the difference between horses and cows. She said, "Sure, cows have corners."

K-Girl, maybe you should get your DH a pet "bobcat" after you move and are settled.

The mention here of a grey tabby cat reminded me of a friend whose cat was a tabby cross.... I once heard her describe it as a crabby toss!
