Hello My Minions!
Sorry for the delay in posting much lately. Between my father, this ongoing cold (which FINALLY seems to be going away!) and work, I just haven’t had much time to go online for the past week, never mind forming thoughts to put a coherent post together!
My father is getting better day by day. They started him on solid foods yesterday, and they may transfer him back to the rehab hospital either today or tomorrow to build up his strength yet again.
Once again, I can’t thank everyone enough for their comments and emails. They mean the world to me!
In other news:
We had Tiamat’s 784th 76th birthday celebration this past weekend.
She was as irritating as ever.
Besides her usual screeching, shouting orders and her altogether being just a general pain in the ass, she practically disabled my poor Teddyji by pulling him up on her fat lap by his front paws!!
His yelp of pain had me rushing over to them to see if he was alright. He jumped off of her lap after that and was walking around without any problem, so it is for that reason, and that reason alone that I am not in jail for murder and that her fat, cold, lifeless body isn’t lying in the city morgue!!
And the Darling Nephew isn’t exactly “darling” in my eyes right now.
After being told numerous times by myself, his mother and his father not to touch my Steiff tigers, which perch on the back of an overstuffed chair in our spare bedroom, I discovered during the evening that he knocked them off of the chair not once, but TWICE!!!!
I realize that he is only a child, but, after being scolded for doing it the first time, you would think that he would know better than to tempt my wrath again!
Fortunately the tigers weren’t damaged, and I told Husbandji that the next time that he comes over that I am putting the tigers in the Barbie Room, since that room is always shut and locked when his family comes to visit. (He’s out to them as a Gay man, but not as a Barbie collector!).
I know that I’m over-reacting just a tad. It didn’t help matters that I discovered the tigers on the floor right after the Teddyji incident, so I was stilled wired from that, but, these aren’t just toys, and the Darling Nephew has to learn that.
If he asks me where they are the next time he comes over, I’ll tell him that they didn’t like him “manhandling” them, and they went back to India!!
I guess that that’s all for now. Now that my father is on the mend, I hope to have more time to blog. Talk to you all soon!
