Sorry I didn't make myself more understandable when I first posted that we were loosing the private Forums. Not the Blog.
Seems things on the forum scene are settling down, and it is very possible that all the members of the old sites are settling into a much better place. Oh there's going to be complaining and whining and whimpering about it not being just like the old one, and this is missing, and that is not working, and we can't find this and that. Can't decorate like we could over there.
Heh! I complain with the best of them, but with a little help from your friends, and the surprisingly humongous amount of volunteered help from the folks already at the new site, things are shaping up, the complaining is going down, and we're down to catching up with the stragglers and getting them registered and settled in.
Plenty of things to talk about around my place tonight. The Lady of the house is into knitting yet another sweater/vest/something or the other for me so she won't be contributing anything. Don't read me wrong. That little lady is a whiz with the needles (she's watching TV, holding the spoiled one, Tegar, and steadily knitting away) Multitasking I think its called. I've an armful of boxes of baby stuff to mail out this coming payday that she's knitted (and some crocheted as well.) All just for friends and for the family, and (horrors) ME too. Like I don't have a lifetime supply. I guess I'm going to have to start going out more often just so I can wear all these gorgeous things she makes for me. You know, I'm thinking if little Mitzy, the little Rat Terrier we had for so many years way back when, was still with us, she would be the best dressed little barkie in the great state of Mississippi.
Since this is the kitties' place I'm considering what I'll do. Can't quite get into the '7 things you don't know about us' that I'm still owing for the gifted site award. It's 2 down and 5 to go. It will be a while, but we'll try to make it good. And I have two more pages to build and add to the Index on the upper left of the side column.
Before I forget, I have one extra note of thanks, and it goes to KC, the lady that has one of the most beautifully designed and run Web Site I've had the pleasure to read and enjoy over the years. Gentleannie 2 is the title.
There you'll find verse, story and picture of her cats and too, of life. What can I say but "give her a visit, and, while you are there, drop a line in her guest book at the least." It's a good place for all to visit. I do often.
One more for the fun of it
Buddy taken at one of the many Cat Nip parties
we have here at Five Oaks
He left early but came back as the others were leaving
Talk about being 'High as a Georgia Pine'
I think if he had a pine tree he would have climbed it
Y'all come when you can.
As always, I feel loved.
