I brought her inside, nothing broken, etc. She's eating and drinking, but she still isn't walking or standing, much. But she is perched about 8 inches off the ground, so that is definitely a sign she's getting better...wondering if one of the older girls pushed her off her perch at night...I really need a webcam out there...
Sounds like she is getting strength in her legs if she is hold onto a perch.

They're based on a series of books by Robert B. Parker who's best known for the Spenser series (Spenser For Hire on TV).

Right now she's on my lap...she'd like it if I'd let her get a bit closer to the keyboard...

I'll bet what happened is because of the winter, you stopped throwing biscuits out on the lawn. I'll bet you she is faking so she could spend some time with Big Chicken. LOL

Yes, it's a very good series of movies. I've never been a TS fan, but he fits this part to a T.
There was one on yesterday I hadn't seen before. And there are two I just put in my Netflix DVD queue. That should wrap it up. Unless he makes more.

Fixin' to call my mechanic to get a good recommendation from him for an auto body shop. Ugh. Someone backed into me in the Taco Bell parking lot over the weekend. I saw it coming and was laying on the horn - she never heard me. She also never heard the witness who saw the whole thing and was honking his horn to get her attention. Sheesh....

Minimal damage, thank goodness.

Wow. That stinks, Cheryl.
I was sitting in a parking lot before when someone backed right into me. Same thing, laying on the horn because I saw it coming. Some drivers are oblivious.

Bummer Cheryl. I'm glad it was only minimal damage and you weren't injured. Was the dingbat listening to the radio or head phones too loud?

That's a real pain in the butt of your car Cheryl. Hope the repair causes you as little inconvenience as possible.
