Gonna need to pick up some overtime shifts at work to pay the vet bills. Claude survived his declaw (you know Claude, right?) - after me being on Augmentin three times this summer due to bites inflicted while attempting to trim his claws, which were getting so long that they were turning under into his toe pads, I decided on the surgery. I'm on the fence about declawing, but in this case, it was the right choice. He's recovering quite well better than I expected.

And Cricket - you know Cricket, right? She's the six-toed kitten I fell in love with. She's doing good, and will be speutered as soon as she finishes her vaccines and hits six months.

And then this week... little black fluffball noshing on my porch. So I went out two nights ago, but the kitten didn't let me pet him/her, even tho he/she came within a foot of me to eat. Last night I set up a cat trap and caught him (it's a boy!). The vet thinks he's about four months old, so he's getting vaccines and will also be speutered ASAP. So Toby and Claude are in the guest bedroom, because Frank and Marvin terrorize them. Little kitten is in the guest bathroom until he settles in (and after that, I need to keep him away from Cricket until they're fixed). Claire and JFTB are doing awesome. And I think that's it.

Got my passwords fixed for the web hosting, so I'm back!

Happy birthday, Dad! See you in January!

Of course, it being five or six years since I set up my last laptop, I have no clue what the password is for my web hosting provider. I'll have to get on them when I have time, and have it reset.

OK, new laptop! Let's do this!

Big thanks to Mom, who was out here for a short trip (it flew by), she took one look at my sad financial state (car needed new tires, loaned out some $ to a friend) and was awesome and bought the new laptop. We had such a great time when she was here, amd we got to do our favorite things - go up to Cave Creek, hit the LUSH store in Scottsdale, lounge poolside, see Chicago, go to a DBacks game, and take Eve to Haus Murphy's for gut-busting German food.

Tesse was out last month, too, and we spent time snuggling the kitties, watching Outlander, enjoying some fine monsoon rain, and we spent one night at the Fairmont Princess resort, a perk of her being a terrific writer. Next month, she has a few nights at the (cough cough) Beverly Wilshire in LA. She graciously asked if I wanted to take a quick trip to LA and enjoy the hotel. Uh, yes.

So as I was driving back home (after working 12 hours and then driving up to Anthem to drop stuff off at Tesse's aunt and uncle's), I got a flat. Just the week before, during my oil change, they told me that my tires were wearing out (after 108K, not shocking) and would need to be replaced soon. So I wound up buying four new tires. Hence, the laptop purchase had to wait til Mom came out.
