|PBS series "Pie in the Sky"|
Almost finished watching the "Pie in the Sky" PBS series on DVD. Love Henry Crabbe - the chef/detective!
These DVD's (previous to this was the Downton Abbey series) have kept me sane when there's nothing but re-runs (for the most part) on TV lately. Of course it has given me more time to work on my de-cluttering the computer room. I've actually gotten past the desk, bed, and small shelf and cleared 3 of the 4 high shelves on the back wall. Once this is done, I will "ENTER THE OMINOUS CLOSET" where there are probably 20 + years of paperwork and junk to go through. (I'm not a hoarder, but this closet probably comes close)
And I'm trying to be lean and mean... throwing away or giving to charity stuff that just doesn't need to be kept anymore.
|old mama coon at the kitchen door...|
This is the old mama coon (who must have babies somewhere close by as she is obviously nursing) who comes by every night to our kitchen door looking for hand-outs. There is dry catfood out in the yard which she does help herself to, but she likes to get a little extra treat and will stand by the french doors with both hands on the window, cock her head to the side, and wait. Usually we give her a cookie or what-ever is available. This night I only had a slice of bread...
There are some that say "don't feed the wild-life" and I understand their reasoning, but to be honest we've learned (after being here for 30 years) that if we feed them, they don't cause any trouble. They eat, they leave, and they don't cause any trouble or do any damage. At least this has been our experience.
|Tux in window|
Tux likes to sit in the window seat and watch the front outside cats and kittens. We laugh as the inside ones watch the outside ones and vice-versa - kind of double reality TV. I'd call it, "Windows to another world".
|2 kittens playing on branch in back... see black one behind b&w?|
That about sums up my week so far. Quick update on Rose and her stitches (staples), She's been really good. We haven't had to put that awful collar on her again... so far. She has an appointment tomorrow with the Vet to check the wound and see if the staples can come out. I'm of the opinion that they probably should remain a bit longer, but we'll see.
