Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Things have been nutty here.

Our hamster died yesterday. Who knew we could all get so attached to a rodent? Many tears, sad little girls (and big girl too!) I am now terrified one of the cats or the dog will be next. Yikes!

Do I have to have coffee? I am really more in the mood for a Mike's hard Lime....or maybe 6.

I think a little humour helps at these times.

A man brings his hamster to the vet's office and lays the hamster on the examining room table. The vet looks at the hamster and says: "I'm sorry sir, your hamster is dead."

Not at all happy with the vet's diagnosis, the man demands, "I want a second opinion!"

The vet whistles and in comes a Labrador Retriever. The lab sniffs the hamster for a minute, looks up, and shakes it's head. "The lab says your hamster is dead." replies the vet.

"I want a third opinion!" The man demands. So the vet opens the back door and in bounds a cat, who jumps on the table. The cat looks the hamster up and down for a few minutes before looking up and shaking it's head. The vet responds: "Your hamster is definitely dead, sir."

"All right what do I owe you?" The man asks, finally satisfied with the diagnosis.

"That will be $650, please." The vet replies.

"WHAT?? $650 just to tell me my hamster's dead????"

"Well sir, it would have only cost you 50 dollars for my diagnosis. However the other $600 was because you insisted on having the cat scan and the lab test."

Alix, we are so attached to my son's hamster, Bat Girl. She is so loveable - I am so sorry for your loss.

Jkath, thanks for the Mikes. I will sip these now, that vodka is going to my head. I am in for pie if there is any left?

There's about 3/4 of it left- check out the rec in the pie forum. It's really good!

Alix and Bang, have you seen the portrait? It's hanging over there in the atrium, next to the palm.
