Noxgear products are awesome and worth every penny.

Wouldn't they be only for noxers? ;-)

Maude; I like the way you think.
my nightmare
Board: Yakking It Up
Jan 20, 2019 11:19am
So, last night I had a nightmare that someone else did the exact same event we are planning. Needless to say, I woke up very upset and in distress. I realize that we have not posted the event yet and while by this time of the year it normally is, it probably won't be posted until late February, assuming all goes well with a very serious situation. Sorry to be Facebook vague about it but it's upsetting to go into further details. Anyhoo, fingers crossed and hopes and prayers, all will be fine.

Just know that our event crew is very excited about this one! For those who are potentially interested, we are looking at the last weekend of September or the first weekend in October. I can never remember which. Lol!

Well, at least I know it’s in the house.

Last night I finished up carving a new stamp. I left it on the coffee table where I carve. The plan was to get up this morning and do the first printing. Ok, let’s get going... wait, what!? Where’s my stamp?

Over in the corner my cat is looking at me coyly. Grrr. Now the search begins... I just hope it’s still in one piece.

Cats.

Our dog, Taz, has been known to hide my stamps too.....I'd prepped a ton of them for the event in Australia and carefully placed them in a lock n' lock for going into my luggage. Woke up and box was GONE.....panic search revealed it was carefully buried in the backyard......sigh.

We tried that......Taz was awesome at locating new boxes (we think he can smell the new plastic) BUT......he couldn't tell us where he got it so putting it back became a serious issue.

You need a spotter, someone who watches where Taz goes so that you can put it back. Or maybe you need a leash so that he doesn't get very far away.

The option can't be to not take Taz. Dogs so much like running in new places; all of the new sights and sounds are wonderful.

Sorry to hear about Taz. 🐶 sending hugs!

On a lighter note, after a prolonged search we found the stamp. He had squirreled it away but luckily it wasn’t any worse for wear. Just a few pointy bite marks. Texture right?

Thank you! We think so. We love ginger cats too. We adopted two abandoned kitties (both orange) and became converts! One passed and the other one was despondent so we adopted another gingerboy to keep him company - Logan (pictured), the scamp. Ha ha, we love him... but he is precocious.

I remember reading about the one you lost. We lost Karate at 19 years but a week later, Tony was found by my son and his dog.

Tony weighed 14 oz (10 without all the fleas) and was an abandoned runt feral. Took him to our vet and told her to test for FELV and FIP and I didn't want to see "it" until I knew I could fall in love. 10 minutes later her tech came out with Tony in her breast pocket and put him in my lap explaining they couldn't put an unvaccinated kitten in the back. He hunkered down and started purring and all I could think was "BI%$H!!"

He's 18 pounds now and the love of my life AND even more amazing, the spitting image of Karate.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons.
All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only
two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside
the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters ' dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them.
