Thoughts on life, tape measurers, man in a hat, & vaccum cleaners from a spoiled rotten kitty cat. Oh, & animals....lots of animals!!!
really great idea having a birthday party online. love the way oreo expresses himself so well. you must be a great mommy to teach him to use the computer. hope oreo likes the dried fish shavings yuki and kimiko gave to him. i think they hid it behind a pillow for him to find later. they like to play hide n seek. they love fish shavings and thought he might like some too.
Thank you very much . Oreo is suh a good kitty! I won't tell him about the present, he'll find it I am sure!
Hey H! Finally got here. Got stuck in rush hour traffic coming home from bead class. Beau hid some packets of tempations in the cabinet for Oreo. He was going to hide them under the sofa but was afraid someone else would get them. Great party! You're very organized! So how are YOU doing???
Doing good. How about you! I won't tell Oreo where they are! I'll just let him sniff them out!! Are you enjoying the bead class? And making the jewelry?
I'm fine. Glad you're doing well. Yes, for the most part. Some of the tedious part can be stressful. So what have you been doing lately (besides getting ready for this)?
That's pretty much all! The kids are out of school now so they are here driving me crazy all day!! No, they're good kids. They have been helping out some around the house so that has freed me up to....guess...do this party!!! :)
Sounds like your kids are growing up fast! So, you glad/not to have them out for the summer? Are you going on a vacation anywhere?
:) Yeah! I'm not sure yet. Their dad usually gets them some & we never know when he's gonna get them sssoooo. It's hard to make plans.
Hey! If I were you, I would say this is when and for how long we're going on vacation. Now make YOUR plans. You have custody of the kids so you shouldn't have to work around him, it should be the other way. Have you heard from #3 lately?
Not really. He's getting money now on my disability claim & I got a thank you for that but.....
OOOOH...How in the heck does HE get money now on YOUR disability??? That doesn't even make sense! Oh, that burns me!
Christopher gets the money. All the kids do.
Hi ladies! Heather you look great in this picture. It's so cold here (55) I'm in jeans & a sweatshirt! But you can imagine me in a skirt & nice top if you want to!!! Cathy I got the bracelet today and I'm so happy with it! You do lovely work. Those beads are just so unique. And the boys thank you for the toys!!!!
Hi S, S, & S mom!! How are you? Thank you!
Hi, all! How are you all doing?Jeans for me today, too.
Oh, well that makes sense IF he truly spends it just on the kids. Hey L! I'm in the process of responding to your email and also trying to comment here in 2 different places, so it may take a few minutes! It's 89 degress here...and humid. It's miserable!
Hi everyone! This is a great way to do the party. I almost feel like I could go for a swim but it's only about 60+ here in CT also.
Oh, sorry, I'm Bonnie & Victor's mom. Too many identities to juggle! Cool and humid in Madison, WI today, with a little rain at lunchtime.
Ahhhh the ocean breeze. Was that wrong of me? ;0)Hi everyone - still working here. Hope everyone is doing well. Have a great weekend!
Cathy I'll trade your 89degrees with humidity for our dreary Ct weather! It's been yucky for so long and now its supposed to get windy tomorrow.
Geez, it sounds like we are all either burning up or freezing. Crazy weather everywhere this year. So..................ummmmmm............read any good books lately?!
My parents live at the beach in Los Angeles, where the "June Gloom" is setting in. DKM, still at work? YUCK! I've been working way too much lately, including two Saturdays. Now I get to travel to exciting (not) Iowa next week. Joy!
Just finished Life of Pi by Yann Martel.
Hi Heather! Finally made it. It has been a hot humid day here. I didn't get alot done outside but have been decluttering the kitchen. Dimples and Whiskers are here.They brought Oreo a ham cake decorated with chicken bite treats. He is going to have one tummy ache if he eats everything here.
B&V's mom, I know how you feel! I'm trying to blog the humans, the cats, and answer emails all at the same time! I'm getting confused! LOL L, you have email now! DKM, is it okay if I send a couple of things to you to forward to someone other than Edsel's mom? E-me and let me know.Br., that's okay I'm used to our weather. I have the clothes for it! L., sounds like that temperature thing has to do with our age! LOL! I haven't had time to read ANYTHING other that emails and Catoympic stuff since I'm the one coordinating it! :-) Hopefully when it's over..! By the way, as soon as it's over my computer IS going to be fixed so I will be temporarily without a computer.
Sure - what ever you send I'll forwarding onward to Susan. I sent the first huge care package out today. It's only 6:20 in CA - so yep I'm still at work.
Multi-tasking these days is the norm. "They" say it's not as good a thing as it used to be. I still can't get around it though. If I didn't I'd really be lost in work more than I am now.
"Only" 6:20. Yea, I'm supposed to be off at 4:30, but that's a laugh. I've been seeing 7 too often. But there's a light at the end of the tunnel... and I was off today. "Off" is relative - School got out at 9:15 with no daycare. Last day.
Oh MY GOSH!! I stepped out for 20 minutes to gotot the store & I came home to 43 emails!!!
The last couple of years I worked they were giving more and more of the "supervisers" work to us "underlings" to do and not paying us more for doing it. It had gotten to the point we were doing 3 different jobs for the same amount of time and pay. Then they would yell at us for not getting everything done! It was crazy!
I work with a lot of people who make loads of money yet the ones they cut back on are always the admins so we have to do three times as much. If we have time to breath it means we don't have enough to do. Ok - enough of that, I want to go swimming (or something fun like that)! Need to take a break from reading after that last book. Whew.
Oreo - your Mom is very pretty. i wish i could come to your party, but i have to stay home to take care of my Mom, she's pretty scared. Happy Birthday and thanks for mentionin' me in the birthday list, mine is tomorrow.
Hello all. Oreo, you have sucha purrrty beanmom!
I know it is Edsel! It is so good to see you, if only for a minute! Give your Mom lots of hugs & kisses from me & Mom.
Fank you Mia!
Have fun Br! Edsel, how's your mom? I bet she IS scared! She is in our thoughts and prayers. If you need me to teleport to help snuggle with her let me know. Hey Princess Mia! I hear you had a wonderful relay picture!
Off to catch the boat home. Have a great weekend all. Oreo - DK and the buns will be hanging out the entire weekend. Please make sure Orlando doots outside and no one eats my fluffles.Ciao
Hate to leave now when it seems the partys just starting but I can't keep my eyes open any more. G'night to all and happy birthday to all. You are all so nice. Sweet dreams.
I'm leaving too. Heading out for 2 for 1's and appetizers at our favorite eating establishment. Heather, keep an eye on Scout. He gets rather rambunctous and puffs up his tail & runs around like a wild man! I'll check in later. bye. Lynne
Will do Lynne!
So, are you confused yet with going back and forth within the comments like I am!
Looks like the party is going great..Maggie is having fun..Wheeeee
HAHAHA You should be getting all the emails from the comments! Talk about hard to keep up with!
ROFLH!! I'll bet it is!! It would crash MY computer right now!I'm just amazed my computer is lasting through all this going back and forth, and especially how well you're doing!! I commend you!!
Don't worry about all the caterwauling, they are just singing happy birthday in the tent!
Oh, my gosh, I am lost!!! Thats what I get for showing up late......Just stopped by to wish Oreo a very Happy Birthday. The girls told me what to get for a gift, they were very excited.Toni Momma
Some of those cats have a good voice! Hey Toni!
Hey Toni!!I am headed to bed ladies! Enjoy the party, find a place to sleep if you want.
The host cat and hostess human are both going to bed. I think we should gather up our cats and or make sure they're in the nap pile and go to bed ourselves, then pick up again tomorrow. I'm going to go look for Beau.
hey girl! I'm here as promised! Looks like the party is going well! Fun times!
I'm sorry that i got here late! Maybe I'll be able to catch up with everyone tomorrow. The girls will be coming back for the party then too.~LSP Momma Becca
that's a pretty human.
Back from 2 for 1's but it looks like we humans are tiring out. It's nearly midnite here. Good night. See ya all in the morning! Lynne
Goodnight I found a spot to sleep so going to catch a few winks while things are kinda quiet... Now where is Dimples hiding???
Nice human area, good looking hostess!
Thanks for coming, all you who came after I petered out!! I can't believe how many comments I got last night! I'll be around pretty much all day today, so leave a comment!!
Hello Oreo's Momma! I can't stay, but I wanted to stop in for the party at least briefly. We're taking a road trip today to see our new family member - a 4 week old black lab puppy. Sshhh. It's a secret. I haven't announced her on my blog yet, but hopefully soon. I'll be snapping photos today.Enjoy the party! I hope you get a TON of visitors!
Thanks for stopping by, Oreo loves his card! I won't tell about the puppy!! We HAVE!! It's been crazy trying to keep up with all the emails!
Whew! I'm back from the bad place now. Any humans left?
I'm hanging around. Getting a new post ready for the blog. Glad you survived. Any goodies? Lynne
I'll have to go look at it then! I haven't been much of anywhere today! None for me, I was Father's Day shopping!
Hi Oreo, sweetie! I hope you are having a lovely birthday with lots of purrs and nuzzles.
It was nice of you, Oreo, to provide a place for us humans to hang. Happy Purrday!
Hi Puff's Mom! Fanks you!Fanks you Princess!
I'm back finally! How's everybody doing? Lynne, did you get my "crazed and confused" email last night?
Hey Cathy! Good to see you back!
The girls are back at the party, so I thought that I'd stop by and say heelo to everyone!~becca
Hi Oroe's Momma. It's me Scooby. Can you rub my belly please????
Thanks! Hey Becca! How you doing Heather? Holding up okay?! Beau and I decided last night this is the best party EVER!!
This is Fat Eric's mum, Kate. Eric is just stopping by for a few minutes but I'm afraid he won't be stopping long. I need the computer to write school reports!
Forgot to say, you have a lovely place, Oreo's mum! It is so hot here tonight I could just jump into that pool right now!
Fanks you Kate.Cathy, it am CRAZY at my house!!
I managed to find a Zoom Groom on eBay.uk (they don't sell them in the UK) - I was just trying it out on Eric - could you hear the loud purring from where you are? He so loves being groomed, it is hard to tell if he likes the Zoom Groom or the comb better as he purrs just as much for both!
LOL!! What's in a Shirmptini besides Shrimp? But you're SURVIVING!! You should have set up 4 computer in your house and have everyone manning one! LOL
Looks like everyone is having a nice time. Dimples went off to the pool with Oreo. Love your place Heather and you are sure going to have alot of cleaning to do after this party! Never seen so many people and furry friends
Thanks for the heads-up! I wouldn't miss this party for anything. Sammi and Annie will join me. Even though they are dogs, they are very well behaved and promise not to chase any birthday kitties.Happy Birthday to you,Happy Birthday to you,Happy Birthday, dear OreoHappy Birthday to you!
Well, I'm very hot and tired so I'm going home now. I've already sent Beau a catogram to teleport home. Hopefully, I'll be able to check in for a few minutes tomorrow. If not, it was lovely and you are a very gracious hostess! Take care!
Hey, all. Had to run off for some errands. Did Victor, Oreo, Beau Beau, and Scout find the snake?
They were trying really hard but I think Mr. Sanke got away. He will live another day to terrorize poor Oreo's mom! Lynne
Hi Derby's mom Janet here. Figured I might check in on the adult section. I have been giving myself an online education this afternoon on how to bet horse races. With the Belmont I could have that and a few other races to work with. I did well considering I don't have a clue about betting. I like horse racing, but not into betting. The site I used you have play money. So that works. I want to learn a little about this as the boss at work has organized an outing to Arlington Park. So I can go an socialize and place a few minor bets. So between making bets and monitoring the races, I could post to the party.
I had to leave just after that poor horse fell and got trapped under the gate. How did it turn out? The other horses were spooked & the announcers asaid there was going to be a delay for the race. Lynne
There was a short delay. I don't think that horse was seriously injured, but that horse and one other that was next to it were not raced. Actually the race stewards err on the side of caution to keep the horses safe.
They are such beautiful creatures. My dad & oldest sister were/are into showing horses. Dad showed all over the upper midwest and my sister is president of the Quarter Horse Assn. or some such thing. I never got into it, partly because I loved cats so much as a child but also 'cause the dust they kicked up really aggrivated my asthma. So did the cat hair, but I chose to live with that!!!!! I do love to watch the races on tv, so that much trickled down to me! Lynne
Yes, I am one who on these days when there are races all day long just love it. I watch the race, then with the 30 or so minutes between races, go around and get my housework done. I didn't grow up around horses but my Dad did, but they were work horses who they used on the farm. No fancy racing or show horses. But I love them anyway.
HOCKEY IS STARTING>>>>>GOTTA GO! Lynne
Bye, I might watch a bit of hockey myself tonight
Nice party... hope Oreo enjoys his birthday.
Whoops... the girls are letting me use their login... should be signing them as me!Jen
Good Morning! I'm Jan, and Flumpy and Meowmepurr(aka Meepsie) are my cats. Their woofie brother is Shep the Dog, who loves kitties! We hang out at Kat's Cat, where we first saw Oreo, and started reading his bloggie. We don't have any of our own yet.May we crash the party for a little while? I was reading some of the party posts to my husband, Paul, last night; we were both ROFL!!
Nice to meet you Jan! Of course!! Feel free, let everyone wander! I don't think many of the kitties have rolled over yet, but they will be here soon!
Thank you! We live up in the country about 30 miles NE of Portland, OR; so we sat down before we left so I could explain the difference between wabbits and buns! Meepsie understood right away, Flumpy got it, and they are both going to keep an eye on Shep. Try explaining ANYTHING to a 13 year old Aussie! Where Shep is concerned, Flumpy is the Iron Paw(never mind the Velvet Glove).
You are very welcome! The more kitties the better! Although I did have a heck of a time keeping up with all the comments yesterday!
Hey, Derby is looking for your kitties in the refreshment tent & Oreo left a message for Indy to meet Shep in the woofie playpen, but he's not here yet. I'll let you know when he gets here.
I'm not surprised! I think I would have had to spend the afternoon at The Bad Place to recover. You are putting on one hell of a party!
Thanks, though I could NEVER recover at the bad place! I abhor the bad place!!
OOPS! sorry.I just got out my trusty Road Atlas to look up Hardy--and couldn't find it! We lived in NO. VA from '76 to '86-and my parents retired to VA BCH about the same time. My Sainted Stepmother still lives there, and we still have friends scattered all over the state. I still think Virginia is one of the most beautiful places on earth!
HAHAHA, somehow that doesn't surprise me!! Hardy is about 20 min before Roanoke if you're coming from Martinsville. Va is VERY beautiful. I lived in Ohio for about 6 months & other than that I've lived here my whole life.
I found it! What a lovely area! My dad had a little place at Fancy Gap(summer in VA BCH was too hot and crowded for him), but he died before I got to go there.I'm a NASCAR nut, so living there would be Little Pig Heaven for me! Even though I know about the crowds and all, I still want to go to Bristol one of these days. I've driven through on 81, but I would trade my husband(of 36 years!) for a Bristol night race.I think my kids have joined nap piles, so I'm going to sneak out and do a little work here. Thanks for the GREAT hospitality.--Jan
HAHAHA! We went to Bristol when it snowed! I posted about that. It's on here somewhere. This will be going on till 6 this evening so stop back in if you can. Thanks for coming.
Yawn!!!!!! Hi Heather & All! Went to a neighbors bonfire last night and stayed a bit long. It's nearly noon & I just getting going. Lynne
Hey! We just dropped by for a few minutes in between our busy schedule. We wanted to leave each birthday and Gotcha day cat a can of Stinky Goodness and a bag of temptations. Tell everyone about the prayer vigils tomorrow for Edsel's mom. -- C
Hey Lynne! We stayed up late watching movies & didn't get up until about 9, which around this place is VERY odd!!Hey Cathy, glad to see you back again! Thanks for the food & treats, I'm sure they will LOVE it!
Be sure that Edsel gets his. I know he couldn't be here today. I'm amazed you had a chance to email me back a minute ago! Are you crazy yet?! Lynne, got the info..thanks!
I will, I'll send it out right now. That makes two of us. At last count there had been 758 comments from the guests!!
WOW!!! Incredible!! I've got to go get ready for a bead class now, and we won't be back until around 7:30pm. We'll check in when we get back even though the party will officially be over. Thank you for a lovley time...uh, just got an email from you. Will go read it.
Just stopped by to say hi......The girls and I have spent the day working on the olympics; I left them home, they are napping..... time is getting close for the opening ceremony!! Patches had to polish her speech. What a great party! Amazing!Toni Momma
Nice Mom! My Mom is pretty too! =^^=
