hiya chopper, how nice to see you here at the coffeehouse. do you need a cuppa? we have so many wonderful coffee blends here...oh, i see you know your cats, chopper, just look at that buttons, trying to make a nest for herself in your lap. she's usually not like that with strangers. or is it your sandwich she's so enamored with?:) oh well, don't worry, you'll be fast friends soon enough....

addie, i'm sorry you are in pain. i too had pleurisy in my adolescence. i will never forget the sharp knife-like pain that pleurisy brought with it. i hope you are seeing a doctor for it, and that treatments are better today than when i was sick with it....

Hi Vit! I hope you don't mind, I started the tea kettle for some tea since I don't drink coffee. I was pleased to see that you have several tea bags to choose from. The English Breakfast suits me just fine, thanks. Oh, I hear the tea kettle...good thing it has a whistle. You will have to move kitty.............

Hey vitauta and chopper. I went out with a friend for an unexpected catch up visit. She made all my grumpies disappear! The blonde roast at Starbucks helped too. ;)

I can't talk about my project in public as it is going to be a surprise for someone who lurks here periodically. I'll answer in PM if you really want to know. Its not all that exciting for anyone but me really.

Off to work soon. Feel better Addie. Hey chopper, lets send one of those kitties over to snuggle Addie.

I think Buttons realizes what an animal lover I really am. My lunch is finished, and she still wants to cuddle with me. I don't think my dogs will mind. They chase the neighbors cats back to their yard, but have not messed with my grand cats at my son's house too much.

Great idea Alix. Addie needs a kitten! It sounds like they have spent some time at her place before, so all should be well. Which one are you sending?

I know you're enjoying snuggle time with Buttons, but I think Buttons is Addie's special buddy. That's who I'd send over. Did we ever name the other little brat kitten? And will he be lonely without Buttons? We could make sock mice for him to play with.

I don't mind switching to the other cat. What?.. You have no name.....? Send Buttons to Addie. She needs a friend.

by all means, chopper, help yourself to the tea, and any fixings you like. alix is the tea connoisseur around here, she stocks quite a collection of different tea flavors and brands...i don't drink tea often myself, but i do like a cup of green tea now and again...chopper, have you checked out the gardens out back? there are some rows of vegetable plants that are threatening to take over, outpacing our feeble attempts to keep the growth and weeds in check....we are picking salad greens and veggies already last month. the green peas are coming along nicely, and god, have you seen the strawberries we began harvesting last week? god, they are small, but oh soo sweet, i can't seem to leave them alone....

oh alix, you always have to have that aura of mystic surrounding you, dontcha? oh okay then, i'll have to pm you 'cause now you have my curiosity piqued....:)

I layed down and fell asleep. The pain is much less. I took two Vicodin. My son recommended Tylenol. But the Vicodin has it in them. So why go out and buy them. I wish I had an old fashion girdle right now. When you put pressure on your back it helps the pain. So right now a tight girdle would do just fine. Considering that I am already feeling much better than I did several hours ago, I think this is going to be a short bout. (I hope!) At least I can breath a little easier.

I can't help it, but Buttons is my favorite cat. For Buttons.
