OH these past weeks  I’ve been dealing with allergies and how to NOT sneeze, not blow and not wheeze because of this here critter.. her name is least that is what the vet report said when she got (fixed) this past summer. She belongs to my sister and I am staying with her temporarily so we become house mates. I always thought the name was spelled MiMi, but no matter the spelling she comes when called.
 I found out that some of the newer medicines and pills on the market are NOT for me.
So I am back to taking the old fashion Benedryl only in liquid form so I can manage the dosage. Having asthma all my life, I pretty much stay away from what things I am allergic to and trigger attacks. Right now I don’t have that luxury, so I am dealing with new territory here. Some days are pretty good and others I am pretty fuzzy. Sis Carole is right though, when taking a close up picture of a cat or dog it is a very tricky thing..(eyes-wise) especially if you don’t have the fancy lenses etc. They have no idea what is going on except..”LET’S PLAY!”

This cat is about a year old so it is still in the exploring stage and loves to run through the house and search out things. She will be a very good watchful kitty for those critters that might find themselves in her path. I have been, and always will be a DOG person. It’s just me..the way I am, so dealing with MEME has been a real challenge.
I am taking it one day at a time and working around it. Who knows, maybe I will get used to her..or… maybe not.. We will see…
Until later..hope this finds you all staying well and warm this winter




I went out in search of some neat lights on Christmas eve night. There were plenty to see but when I took the pictures they all came out weird. (I thought..Great.. the camera is broken.. that’s all I need!) Well no it wasn’t broken, but I had forgotten that it was very windy that night and so this is what came out instead of clear photos..


     They all looked fuzzy or completely weird. I did manage to get one or two but most all you could not tell what the heck they were. I must have taken 6 or 7 of this window in a house near here. If you look closely you can just barely make out the LEG LAMP in the windowthere was a man standing in the dining room so it was hard to get a clear shot of it. The leg lamp is from the famous movie..A CHRISTMAS ran on TBS all day and night on Christmas. In the movie the father of the family won this lamp in a contest. It was his pride and joy and he was so proud of it he placed it in his front window. His wife thought it hideous and it got broken. There was no “glue” to fix it so he ended up burying it in the back yard. When I saw the lamp I laughed and was surprised, I went back in a day or so and they had taken it down. It really looked like this..Not small it took up the whole window. The ads I found says 45-50 inches..costing $250.00. Now that is some lamp!





Made some changes here and at Blogspot. It’s green here now and I am going to make sure I keep this blog page fresh and different in 2012. I am pretty tired of the same old thing all the time. WordPress does not make it as easy as blogspot to change, but there are ways to do it. SO…WELCOME 2012!!  Hope this publishes to Facebook  too. I got a note from WordPress saying things may be a little bit strange for awhile because of all FB changes lately. 2012 is starting out to be a whole world of changes for everyone.   In keeping with the routine here I will be posting photos and updates as much as I can. Here is today’s photo

and here is another one.. 

                                                 I DO NOT WISH TO OFFEND ANYONE ..but these labels are bizaare to say the least. The cans were for sale at $2.49 each and the labels taped onto the cans. The description of ingredients on the first can led me to believe that it was clam chowder (manhattan style) and the second one pork and beans. I purchased neither one but got a big laugh out of the cans. The clerk said they had sold some cans as joke presents at Christmas time. NOW.. not knowing what (REALLY) was in the can or who made it would really turn me off. I wondered how many cans they really sold. All I can tell you is, there was a whole case of FISH %%%holes left that no one wanted to buy. LOL
