- Momma is going in to learn Petfinders at the new shelter. A nice lady by the name of Helen, who does it now, is going to help her get started.
- She is also going to help with the new look of the website, which is being redesigned. She has a new design all ready, but so has someone else. She says it doesn't matter, she just wants to be involved and on the committee.
- She is shopping for a new camera. So far, she likes the Canon 10 MB, 20X Zoom. That means more pichers of us!
- It is so cold in the Big Piney Woods, it reminds her of Minnesota. ( I think that is a bad thing.) Snow snow snow, cold cold cold, wind wind, wind. She hooked up Mistrie's electric heated water bowl she got from MomRobyn. Thanks MomRobyn.
- Her tummy is being bad again (she thinks it was some matoes she ate) and she might have to go have some tests done.

Minding My Own Bizniss
Important information: Momma heard on TV this morning that Outlook Express is compromised by a Trojan virus and you shouldn't use it until a patch is developed (they are working on one.) I guess it can steal your passwords and get into your bank accounts.

I Can Hear
the chimes ringing outside. That means the wind is out of the north. I know, from what Momma and Daddy have said, it is an arctic blast. Momma said Mistrie is fine, she is hunkered down in her bed in the woodshed and only comes out to eat and drink.

You can tickle my belly if you like. I like to lay on Momma's clothes cuz it smells like her, so, even when she is gone, it is like she is here. I luvs my Momma. I am a Momma's gurl, however I sit on Daddy's lap efurry night. ( I don't want him to feel neglected.)

Our New Shelter
Yes, volunteering again is a big possibility!!! I did volunteer work 8 years ago (that is how I found Mittens) but couldn't stand to see the cats in cages and knowing so many were being put down. They went to a "no kill" facility in 2002, but the building was small and in need of repairs.

Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.
Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture.
Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their bloggy tellin' them 'bout it. We don't know who all has played so anybody go ahead if you want.
Momma has folders and sub folders. This was the 6th folder but there were only three pictures in it. (They are filed according to the day they are taken.) She also has a folder called My Photos, a sub folder of My Pictures. She is folder nuts. Anyway, the picture below was taken back in 2003 and is some purrty miniature red roses the Meezer Dad gave her for Mom's Day.

I am waiting for you to help me blog.
Oh, bother, where is she? I am getting sleepy.

Pee Ess: Momma changed the picher in the sidebar, so that means it is official. Yup, there is snow on the ski hill.

Reply To David Konne
Dear David Konne:
After much thought, and comments from my true furriends, I have decided, rather than gold, I would like 300 kilos of nip, primo, please.
Also, I can't, at this time, send you any green papers but I do have a ton of Monopoly monies that I am sending. I will need your correct address. The last address you gave me must have had an error in it, it came back undeliverable, address unknow.

"DEAREST RESPECTFUL ONE,I know my message will come to you as a surprise. Don't worry I was totally convinced to write you in reference of cash money and 300 kilos of gold, i want you to help me receive it and to help me investment in your country. i promise you that your% is sure for your ssistance,I will wait to hear from you so that i will give you more details on how we can get this done with out any delay.Have a nice day.Thank yours sincery,David, "
I know it is legitimate because he called me respectful one (which I am, except maybe to Squirt, who doesn't deserve it.) I am waiting until Momma leaves the room before I answer. She gets all crabilated about this sort of thing. She doesn't understand what a windfall this could be. I guess word is out about my financial expertise.

Roman Nose Lake
Momma and Daddy took a drive into the mountains in the metal monster a few days ago.. On their way up, they saw this sign. Yes, that is snow!!!
They went to this pretty mountain lake. We can see it from the Big Piney Woods (look in our sidebar on the right with me and Mitten's silhouettes, just under our double picture ~About The Calicos~, and you will see the white peak with snow on it; that is what you see in the picture above, but the snow is mostly gone now.) She also said, with the rain we are getting today, it is probably really snowing up there now. It took them 2 hours to drive to it. Momma said they went back and forth, up higher and higher. She didn't see any vishus bears.

Investing In Tough Times
1. Invest in my nip farm. ( I haven't started it yet, but maybe next spring.)
2. Invest in my bottled water business. I use nothing but recycled, old, mostly non smelly, milk cartons, using Big Piney Woods cool clear water. I am still collecting milk cartons before I get the business started.
3. Invest in a high yield CD (Cat Deposit.) These are fresh deposits from the three litter boxes we have, scooped twice daily. FDIC insured (Fecal Dropping Insurance for Cats. )
My office hours are 9 to 5, Monday through Friday, unless I am napping.

Leave Me Alone!!!
See what I mean? It is rude to smell of my furrs and she won't leave me alone! I was helping Momma make up the big sleeping place and she had to poke her nose into the fun.

Ode To The Fairies
On a full moon night
I can really see them
With the moon so bright
In a circle on the ground
Spreading golden fairy dust
And dancing round and round
As they slowly waltz on by
They sprinkle me with fairy dust
And fly into the sky
Note from CalicoMom Toni: We had an inch of snow on the ski hill yesterday morning!

I Learned Something New!
I also think her Momma might be a fairy. She looks like one in the picher on Daisy's blog. I know they wear fowlers in their hair. Patches told me she looks like one of them she saw in the woods at the purrday party we had.

This was taken last year. It shows the porch, the way it was before my husband built the new one out of logs from the Big Piney Woods. He made it bigger, also, and now I have a wonderful place to hang my plants.
Fall is now upon us, the only thing left is the hanging baskets under the eaves, saved from the frosts.

Purrday Party/Gotcha Day
What: Purrday/gotcha day party for Patches, Mittens, Mistrie
Where: Big Piney Woods, by the fairy stump
When: 1:00 PST (Precious is going to be waiting by the woodshed at noon PST if you want to follow her to the fairy stump, in case you haven't been here before.)
The fairies are hosting the party. They are going to sing and dance and then sprinkle all of us with fairy dust and teach everycat how to fly! Mistrie and her bestest furriend Gree and Precious and her bestest bud Pepi already have tried it. Mittens is too scairt, so the scairty cats can hang with her (she said she will take anycat that wants to go, on a walk.) We will also play pin the tail on the mousie. (Mistrie has a real live dead mouse we can use.) Tuna cake, ice cream and milk will be served, followed by visitng. Hope you can come!!
~Patches (turning 11,) Mittens (turning 14,) Mistrie (we don't know)~

See You In September
Thanks so much for all your helpful comments on GERD and acid reflux. I switched from Prevacid to Prilosec OTC. The Prevacid, strangely, gave me heartburn, the Prilosec has seemed to cure the problem, well maybe not cured, but I have no more symptoms of nausea and I feel great.
I am going to continue on a break, until September. I have been blogging steady for 2 1/2 years, and need to take the rest of the summer off.
Here is a picture of a few of my 60 pots of flowers.

Momma just told me Sue is a long way away in the mitten state. I miss her. Maybe Edsel could teleport ofurr and we could talk and purr.
