She does want another cat. It took her a little time to mourn the loss of Gabby (the cat she had to put down) - Gabby was always my brother Mikes cat. My SIL feels Gabby got sick b/c she missed Mike so much. Anyway - she wants a cat before fall to snuggle with when the weather is getting cooler. We took her to Sicsa last Friday - which is a shelter for cats & dogs. She found one she liked - her name is Boo - so hopefully she will decide soon to go get Boo or find one to bring home! I hope you find one too as soon as your remodeling is done!!!

And here is Boo:

This made me SMILE!! So glad to hear you are feeling better!!!

Okay, now for "The Rest of the Story" that I discovered in Reno regarding Carl:

Have you ever had the feeling that you were being watched? Sort of like the hairs on the back of your neck standing out? Well, when we went to our first meeting at the Reno Convention Center, I had that feeling. I looked around and didn't see anyone or anything suspicious. The feeling continued. I looked around again, and then finally looked up. There on a marquee was a picture of Carl, almost as if he were looking over my shoulder. The photo rotated throughout the day--no words, no explanation, just the picture.

When we got back to the hotel, there was a Reno magazine; and I read all about Carl and his double life. On page 20 of the Summer 2013 edition of the Reno/Tahoe magazine, there is a picture of Carl, his family, and his friends with the following information: "Virginia City Camel Races, September 6-September 8. Who would have thought that camels actually race? Come see for yourself in Virginia City where these amazing animals really do race across the desert sand! Take a ride yourself around the track for a small fee, or view the ostriches that also make an appearance. Make a day of it and experience everything this special town has to offer with great food and drink and specialty shops along Main Street. (Web Site) visitvirginiacitynv.com"

I did not see any mention of fired Twinkies so I am unsure what the "great food and drink" consists of. Maybe Carl uses the leftovers from the Pines. Someone needs to question Carl at the next Pines Day. I am wondering if Carl uses us as his guinea pigs on what to serve on "Race Day," or does he use the refreshments from Race Day to determine what to serve at the Pines. Pretty eerie!
I want to go!!!!!! That Carl! We are definately the guinea pigs!!! Won't he be surprised when we all show up there!! HA!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be an okay day here with a high near 80 and some rain moving in this evening. I've already been to the grocery store, walmart, and hobby lobby. So I'm doing good today. I went to take some pictures at hobby lobby but my phone was dead. That's the bad thing about never using it. I never think about plugging it in to charge either. Now I need to get a few things done around the apartment before my sister drops my niece's off after school for me to babysit for a few hours. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

It looks like Iím heading out west this weekend. For my birthday, my wife bought be a DVD set of Universal Westerns from the 1950s (the artwork inside the case is amazing and I would love to have it as a standalone piece!). One of my favorites, Backlash, is on the set. It was previously not available on DVD, so I am very excited to have it. I think I will try Dawn at Socorro as I have not seen that one.
I also received a set of Monogram B-Westerns (released by the Warner Brothers Vault). Several have Johnny Mack Brown and I might watch one of those, too. If need be, I also have an old Tim Holt B-picture on my DVR waiting.
Are you and Mr. going to watch anything this weekend?
