Happy Leap Day!
There's not a lot going on today, but DH and I walked this morning, then stopped by Chuy's for lunch. After that, we headed to Pet's Mart to try to find something to cut Rose's mats out. Yes, Rose is still with us. She has her good days and bad days, but in general seems to be content. But she does have mats. Normally we would take her to the Vet and have them shave her, but they have to anesthetize her to do that, and at her age, we're not willing to do this. I have tried using a scissors, but they are so close to her skin that I can't get all of them out... and even at this stage... she isn't very co-operative. Well, we bought this weird comb/razor type thing that we will try. Here's a picture of it.
We will give it a try when she's in a sleepy mood. Tried when we first got home and she would have none of it.
The other thing that was going on today was my 3 year old grand daughter sewed a catnip toy for our cats. Her mom sews very well and also quilts beautifully and she likes to sit on her mom's lap and sew herself. Anyway, she had given me the toy a few days ago and I had put it in my pocket and forgotten about it. I remembered this morning and took it out - throwing it on the floor to our cats. Julie got to it first and wouldn't let it go.

Then Tux took it away from Julie... and finally Ghost got hold of it.

That's when things got interesting. Tux tried to take it from Ghost, but she refused to give it up... growled and kept him at a stand-off. Finally we took it away from all of them until grand daughter can make a few more.
Nothing much new otherwise. Visited at both our sons' houses this week and enjoyed it very much. Love being with all of them. Grandkids are growing up way too fast. Hope we get to visit daughter's place in the Hill Country this Spring. Love going there also.
Made a few more clay critters ... more chickens... these are a little larger than the other ones, and a blue bunny? I'm working on another fox, but he's still in the creative process of becoming a fox.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday. Voting for the Primaries in here in Texas. DH and I did the early voting, so nothing for us to do but wait and see.
It will be what it will be... (and heaven help us all)
