For openers, check this out. Theson has been in Egypt waaaay too long now. Luckily he had his camera with him and got a pic of this business sign in Alexandria. Scary, huh??? I can see all the child porn/pedophiles heading there now!
About 1 am this morning, I was awakened by very loud noises on my front porch (my bedroom faces this porch), my dog and cat both darted out of the bedroom, my heart is racing - having no idea what the hell is going on. I'm not sure how to explain that "fear" that goes through your body - but I trudge straight to the living room door and open it to see WTF is going on. Never thinking that someone could have a hammer or weapon to "do me in" at any time. As I get ready to open the storm door, I hear a cat's WAILING, and now figure it is the neighbor's tom cat Oreo. As soon as I opened the door - I see a black and white flash go off the porch and across the street - yep, that would be Oreo. I never even gave another thought as to what the cat was carrying on about.
I get up this morning to water my plants and this is what I see behind my glider:
Cat hair everywhere. Behind the glider, in front of the glider, all over the porch. I tried to sweep the hairs off and since the deck is newly stained - the hair does NOT want to be picked up and swept away. I'm going to have to get the hose out later.
Oreo is, as I stated a tom cat and the neighbors living behind us, recently found and adopted a female cat (Kit Kat) which is not allowed indoors and now roams the neighborhood. That is one thing we have never really had a problem with here - dogs running loose, yes - but not cats. By the looks of all the hair - I would say Oreo managed to get Kit Kat pretty good - in one way or another, if you catch my drift.
I'm surprised I didn't hear the cat screams sooner than I did - but I know my pets knew everything long before me.
I hate when I am startled awake such as this - because it takes forever for my heart to settle down, and I started having chest pains shortly after. It seemed like it took forever for the pain to subside. Since I had the triple bypass years ago (6 or 7 - can't remember) I was never given anymore nitro pills...so I just do some deep breathing to get as much oxygen flowing as possible. I was very close to calling 911 or getting thedaughter awake. I won't even begin to start on falling through the cracks of health care. I am feeling better now, that is what counts.
Yesterdays temps may have broken records for being the coolest in a long while. The high was 67* and cloudy. Today is supposed to be mid 70's and rain - lovely. I am hoping to start washing the walls in the bathroom here in short time. I've been putting it off, as it involves a lot of stooping and up and down off the step stool - but I have to get this chore completed. Again with my OCD I guess.
Till something more newsworthy happens....I shall return...later..........
