I disgarded 5 cats one time. I mixed up my words and when I said I disgarded cats, I meant disgruntled cats. When we moved here, we had 5 cats who weren't exactly happy about being shoved into crates and physically moved into a new home.

I had some very interesting days in our new home with them at first.

Ah, I-81, I presume. One of the two stretches from MA to OH that I'm not fond of because of both weather and the road itself. The other is I-80 west of I-81, roughly 70 miles between Clearfield and Clarion. Seems to be fog or icy roads most of the time we drive it around Christmas. Can't wait for the day we don't have to make that trip again when (and if ) we move back to OH.

One of my favorite stretches of highway in our country. Were you able to drive along Skyline Drive with the truck? Or did you stick strictly to the interstate?

Glad to hear your Mom's house turned out so nice! I hope she has many happy years and makes lots of great memories and friends living there.

I stuck to the interstate, I wanted to make good time.

I've never driven I-81 during bad weather, it's always been clear, just not this time! I usually prefer this route because of the lack of tolls and city drivers, especially in a truck!

That section of I-84 between Port Jervis and Scranton was terrible, like a cow pasture, not sure how something in the truck didn't break, it was so rough!

They were quite well behaved so they all made it. Not a one pooped, peed or barfed in their cage! It's the small miracles

The two brothers are not thrilled with the disruption of their lives, while not nasty, they just want nothing to do with people at the moment. I put them in the same large crate together, problem is that they are two HUGE Maine Coon cats and that crate was HEAVY!

No wonder! Two males together? And Maine Coons at that. They do tend to grow big. I pointed out to Pirate once the big M on the top of their heads. Now he looks for it all the time when he spots one.

Most tabbies have the M too.

I am sitting here in amazement at The Pirate. He has always said, if he ever got his hands on a skinner (child molester) he would kill him after he ripped his nuts off. Well, tonight he caught one in the act. He was going into the men's room in the supermarket when he heard a little girl crying and screaming in the ladies room. Instinct told him something was wrong. He opened the door and saw a man molesting a little six year old. The man stood up real fast and my son broke his knuckles hitting him real hard. The man went down. He was on the floor and my son tried to choke him to death. "All I could see Ma was red. I wanted to rip out his Adam's Apple. I was willing to go to prison."

Gah! This sickens me, Addie. Thank goodness the Pirate was there at the right place and time. Hope his knuckles heal well, and that the creep gets what he deserves.

Addie, your son is a hero to that little girl and her parents. Good thing he was in the right place at the right time.

********************

I am enjoying the act of sitting. Now that the weather is warming up (60 today!) my motor is humming a bit faster. Not only did I work outside, but I re-potted three plants, two indoor varieties and a cute little pansy plant that is on my kitchen windowsill for now. Between that, a load of laundry, a bit of cleaning, and making breakfast and dinner, I can't feel the least bit guilty about relaxing. I just hope I can move tomorrow!
