Thanks, tinlizzie! He had a very rough start to his life. The shelter said when they came to unlock and open the place one day, Dinky came staggering out of the treeline, almost starved and terrified of anything that moved. When I first saw him, he was in a cage in the front room of the shelter, standing on his toes, hissing at everything with his hair standing straight up. He looked like a grey cottonball with legs. I fell in love with him in about two seconds. That was 14 years ago. Wow!

Love the pet stories! All sorts of digressing and fun going on in the weather thread, Babe!

42 here now, and getting dark. Temp was up and down today, but still unseasonably warm along the Mighty Mississip.

Our day started out 21F. Got up to 41F. Wednesday will be in the 50's. No white Christmas for us this year. And I am not complaining. We seem to be setting all kinds of records for temps in the high numbers.

Widely scattered light today, followed by darkness, with a high of 55F, low 50's expected tonight. No wind.

Nice...windows open, fans on, pulling nice fresh air into the house.

You know those fake fireplaces they are offering these days? I look at those longingly - how nice that would be in my living room - for those 2 weeks or so a year. But I'd have to chuck the loveseat (already not room for a full sofa) and sit in the floor. Hmmm. Wonder if I could convert it to a "water feature" for the rest of the year.

It's 56F this morning, heading for the low 80's.
