All of life seems to come down to cats, doesn’t it?

I was never a cat person until I met Mrs Sven. For the last 30+ years, we’ve had at least one cat for most of them. Or rather cats have adopted us for food, occasional purrs, wound repair, and shelter. They aren’t the worst creatures in the world.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Mac, and Sven!

Teh Older’s fiance and Teh Younger flew out yesterday for Mrs. Paddy’s birthday, which is Tuesday. It’s a big one, so we have lots planned. We’re going wine tasting in Temecula today, then my MiL rented a suite for tomorrow’s baseball game, where we’ll be joined by extended family and a few friends. Monday and Tuesday are Disneyland (yeah, I hate their politics, but we grew up with them and the days of Walt). Teh Younger leaves on Wednesday and Teh Older’s fiance will stay out for a couple of weeks.

I’m tired just typing all that out.

Mac -- excellent essay!

Grabbed some breakfast while my program runs -- watched part of a Tim Pool podcast where one of his guests was the 70-year old mother of one of the other guests. They were asking her about her younger days compared to today, and she made a great observation about her life as a young adult in the 60’s. I had to write it down.

On Tor again. I missed that one. Sounds like a good one. I don’t always catch them all.. i often listen to the IRL podcast live on my work days.

Drive-by:

¡Hola, GN!

Access is back…at least for now. Yay!

SackO’SugarK’s mostly hangin’ in there right now but is -- understandably -- anxious about a lof of stuff.

Talking to vehicles is essential if you want to keep them happy and running properly.

Agreed…we always try to make Harald (the Yukon) feel like a valued member of the household.

Had a Greenpeacenik stop by CasaK a few days ago; since I had a lot going on, I just told her I was not interested. (Else I might have played around and asked about stuff like nuclear power, etc. and had some mean-spirited fun.)

Got an email Friday; HH-A HOA seems as thought they’re trying to set JimCo up for some moar horseshit. Emailed lawbaw a few minutes ago to keep him apprised and ask how he thinks we should respond (if at all).

I’m not inclined to provide details at present ’cause it’s more typing than I feel like doing at 21:10 on a Saturday night.

Lousy rat bastards.

Glad this does not apply to Brenda:
