Happy uncharted territory Friday, GN!

On the plus side, at least for us, we spent three hours yesterday with our insurance agent and got our homeowner’s insurance squared away. The $ hit was less than anticipated -- overall about a 10% increase over what we paid for the same coverage last year. It’s incredibly more convoluted than anything we’ve had to do in the past, but at least it is done. I imagine that if there is a fire and we have to use it, it will be a real clusterfark.

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

Sven -- I’m glad you were able to get insurance without taking a major hit in the wallet. In fact, I’m glad you were able to find insurance, period.

All the pre-op checks went well and both sending and receiving teams agree that the lungs look good. Surgery is running an hour late. He was just wheeled into the OR. Thanks for asking, Mac.

Bah. You’re a good man and a good gerbil except for the cat thing.

We just got word that the surgery went well and his wife will be able to see him in about an hour. Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers.

As my uncle was fond of saying, that’s a bit of alright.

Next month or so, there will be some type of “incident” targeting some dem somewhere and it will be blamed on Trump/MAGA rhetoric to show how dangerous he and his followers are.

Big day for our squirrel ward. We bought him a regular cage last weekend and he’s been inside and outside in it. Today we opened the door and let him roam around the patio and yard on his own. He got to interact with other squirrels -- the ones that hang out under the bird feeder -- and investigate the outdoors. He spent 2-3 hours more or less unwatched, but now climbed into Mrs Sven’s lap for some snacks and a nap. He’s still the smallest one out there, but they mostly ignored him. We’ll keep him inside tonight and repeat again tomorrow. I think in a few days he’ll mostly acclimate to the “wild” and our job will be done.
