a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yeay.apple01 If Apple Jack is an outdoor cat he will go barmy indoors, i would suggest keeping him in for a day or so and then let it outside. You don't know why he disappeared after all. But that's just me and i don't know where you live or the cat.

Glad the cat came back, SH. I agree with MMM, if feasible, maybe in October you could keep the cat inside due to the potential for theft.

I keep strictly indoor cats, it's just too much stress otherwise.

I hate Firefox, I always use Chrome.

Something odd happened to me on Friday. First I went to a clothing store. The woman who helped us was named Linda. I knew her because she was the mother of a guy who I used to be in a class with. Nothing odd about that. Then I went to another store. The cashier's name was also Linda. Then an hour later, I had to go to work myself. A little girl and her mom came to my cash register and the girl said: ''Hey your name is Linde. If you'd replace the E with an A your name would be Linda!'' I asked her ''Why? Is your or your mom's name Linda?'' and she just replied with ''no it's not''

What's with that name? So weird.

^^Wonderful new, SatanHimself! Here's a picture to celebrate the occasion:

On a side note, Paul has that same open mouth like he is going to take a bite just like in the picture of him and Linda and him and the Queen (pictures are on the LOL tread)

What a great pic…

 

My cat is a bit of a free spirit, and I live in the suburbs close to busy traffic areas.  He has had some wanderlust lately, but he needs to be kept inside for his own safety.  Here in the lowest (hence the most temperate parts) of Canada, our Summer is still in full force in mid-October, so I have to be extra vigilante about his outdoor habits.  We're normally dealing with overnight snow and frost this time of year.  The high today was 22 degrees Celsius, or 74 degrees Fahrenheit.  That is NOT anything remotely near what it should be…

The speculation over Paul having dentures reminds me of a story my mom tells about me.

One time at the grocery store when I was 2, she let me put a coin in one of those machines that dispense little toys in those little clear plastic bubbles. I got a little set of dentures on a string that you would wear like a necklace. I wandered off and got about 2 rows away from her. All of a sudden she hears me screaming, "Mama, mama, I lost my false teeth." She said people from all the rows around came to see the little girl with dentures.

On the subject of cats, was jumping about online and read that if you hit a cat with your car you don't have to report it to the police (tho you do need to take it for treatment if its injured) but you do have to inform the police if you hit a dog.

@Satan I wish it was like that over here. It has been around 6 degrees Celsius with a lot of rain for a while now. Horrible. Usually around this time it's not THAT cold yet and it doesn't rain THAT much. And then to think two weeks ago it was 25 degrees and next week it will be 14. Seems like the weather is all confused.

@Girl That story is priceless lmfao.

Probably relates to how you had to license the ownership of a dog until 1987 (this relates to UK).

Good to hear your cat's back, Satan.

I just feel very irresponsible for letting my cat outside at night…  :(  

@Linde…  It's normally around 9 degrees Celsius during the day this time of year in Southern Ontario.  We've had a few years of very unusual weather with much higher temperatures than normal.  I don't even think we've had overnight frost yet.

No frost here yet. The leaves and grass are still summery green. It's hard to try to wear fall like clothes. Dang it Amy V. and Emily P. I still want to wear white shoes when it looks like this even though it is October.

@Linde, glad you got a kick out of the story. My mom loves to tell it.

Auctioning on ebay is so stressful, I just go straight to the buy-it-now icon. Makes it more expensive but I can't be doing with it. blue-meanie

My labrador retriever must think I'm a sorry excuse for a human. He trees little critters, but I never follow through with the human side of the hunt. He is so obsessive. Kind of like one of his owners *points finger at self*

What does the emboldened part mean?

For example, he chases a squirrel up a tree and through breeding he expects me to shoot it. Once he has has squirrel treed, he will sit under that tree for hours if we don't go pull him away.

How could anyone shoot a squirrel, they are so cute? Currently there is a badger cull ongoing in a part of the UK, i am not in favour.

The city where I work did a culling of prairie dogs not too long ago.

The badger cull is not going very well; targets are being missed for how many should be dead which has resulted in the MP in charge blaming the badgers. 

I know it's not a humourous story animals being killed but if you want to have a laugh at the stupidity of man and it being outwitted by a badger. 

Second, he admitted that shooting nocturnal badgers as they ran around in the dark was actually pretty hard, meaning that his marksmen had not been able to kill enough to ensure the cull’s effectiveness.

All power to the badgers.

I agree – I saw a "Pipes of Peace" I wanted to bid on and put an entry in my diary to remind me.  But then on the day I got caught up watching "Anthology" and forgot about it until the last few minutes.  Then my Mum rang from interstate and while I was chatting to her the time expired.  Luckily another CD came up the next day and it wasn't too much more than I was going to bid so I snapped it up.

When I first began ebay-ing I would stay up bidding like mad 'till it ended, which could be at any time in the early morning (GMT) if the thing wasn't from Europe. All the pressure of not taking your eyes off the screen and having to type really quickly to get your 1p more than the other bidder (s) in…. blue-meanie

This is a fun story so I'll tell it here. We didn't set out to get a hunting breed dog. This little black lab was running the neighborhood. He would go to my mother-in-law's house and turn on the charm. He took to sleeping in the dog house on our porch. Our elderly dog had become an indoor dog so he wasn't using the dog house. We had a big discussion and decided to take the lab in to be our own. Subsequently, we found out who his first "owner" in the neighborhood was. Everyone says the little guy is a lot better off with us than with that other family.
