So Buddy, the cat, turns 6 years of age on May 27th.

Normally I wouldn't announce our cat's BD but he's a special cat for Wayne. We bought him at the SPCA in Nov. 03 as company for Wayne during the long days.

He has been so special I've wondered if he's an angel in disguise - a big, fat, black, hairy angel but an angel nevertheless:)

Anyway, on his BD, I'm making him a "cupcake" out of cat food and buying 2 cupcakes for us. We'll lite a candle on our cc's and make a wish in "cat speak".

A smile - - -

Girls' Night Out - - -

So my sister and I attended Stars on Ice last Tuesday.

She's the real fan but I loved watching the skaters in person. Naturally, got lost trying to find our seats after intermission - asked an usher who pointed us in the wrong direction - nice.

Anyway, if the show comes your way, I think it's great value for the buck!
(Yes, that is me in the picture:)

Remembering You, Mom.

We once had a German Shepherd - why obedience train a dog - this is so much more helpful.

"Good Boy."

So, just reading about the lady who had $800,000. tucked away in a bank safety deposit box.

The bank calls the home and "releases" this information to her husband. Now, she is suing the bank.

Good grief, I hope so. (There are a lot of issues in this case re: their marriage, her secrecy, etc.)

What I find ironic is the bank's employee even dealing with the issue by phone and also, his releasing it like, "Oh, by the way, your wife has a dental appt. Monday at 2:30 pm"

Yesterday, I called our gas company to change the name on the account to my name. "Do you have Power of Attorney?" I do.

"Ok, send it to us and we'll change the name."

"I can't risk mailing the original."

After much discussion, they agreed to a photocopy. I understand they need proof but think of the difference on the handling of these two situations. BTW, they have no local office and I'm paying a bill and have been their customer since January 1974 - but, I also understand their need to protect Wayne who set the account up.
