    Mot really…I’m to go back in a couple weeks. I still miss my old doctor – this doc is ok, but I’m not so comfortable as I was with her – but then, I’d been going to her nearlyy 30 years by the time she retired, and she got me through the near-fatal pneumonia, so I trusted her.

    Ah, well, the kittehs need attention,better go. I am trying to reset my sleep habits so I can get up before the crack of noon.
    Nice to see everybody tonight.
    I’m sorry to hear about Dearie’s dad, too. She had such great stories about visiting him with her grandsons. Sure hope they remember him.
    G’night, all.

    Oh, Dearie, did you break your arm? I’m sorry to hear that…glad you are back into work.
    I’d love to find a gig like yours–finding work part-time is tough.

    I’m hanging in – have been strangely tired all summer, with weird pain lately; finally saw doctor, and have a likely diagnosis of — arthritis! Not sure still why I’m so tired, unless it’s pure avoidance.

    The time has come to clear out my mother’s apartment and let the reetirement community have it back. But it’s very unclear what state my mother is really in; she just seems to be fading, very slowly. ;(
    I need to go to Maryland, but have been putting it off, blaming my delaying on not feeling well.
    Well, that’s cheery, isn’t it? About the only interesting thing I’ve been doing this summer is swimming often. Not a lot of stamina to swim long, but it feels good.

    Hey, I thought I’d pop by, after seeing the news about changes at MyFDL. I read all the explanations, but probably won’t understand them until/unless I need to do a diary. Has been quite awhile since I have. Perhaps it’s time for a Caturday soonish…

    I find I’m oddly disappointed with the results of the Scottish referendum, though I felt like I didn’t know enough to pick a side anyway.

    yellowsnapdragon – was just skimminng before bedtime and saw your Gracie news – I gather she’s already diagnosed with cancer? Or not, and has undiagnosed lump? Here’s hoping it’s benign. Amputation is tough. Crossing my fingers for good news for the elder kitteh.

  • Oh, yeah…I didn’t mean it didn’t exist, just that as a clueless liberal, I had no awareness of it. I used to belong to the segment of liberals who thought we had won decisively in the seventies….

  • Your description: couldn’t be persuaded to change his mind, read only what he agreed with – perfect for today’s conservatives. I guess he’s their model, as well as their idol.

  • Hayek? So early? I admit, although I was “eyewitness” to these events, never heard of Hayek until the nineties.
    Your three books really show how the right wing radicals planned and stuck to a really long-game plan.

  • Sadly,, as the only liberal in a family of conservative Republicans (though not in the Tea Party sense), I watched the Watergate hearings surrounded by people who were offended by the hard questions, and cheered the administration witnesses.
    That grassroots conservatism – I was surrounded by it. Even remember, after the ’68 R convention, my mother and father discussing how impressed they were by Reagan’s speech.
    I bit my tongue a lot, till I was out of the house. ;)

    Back from Monday Over Easy – adorable kittens, BT! They look very much like my Smokey – the basic gray, darker gray Siamese-ish points. Bet you’re having fun!

    In case anyone looks in, just gotta make two comments: one: this topic is very important, and I think people are starting to notice the patterns of police behavior, even in widely scattered locations. And yeah, the “surplus” military equipment given to small towns with no need for it since 9/11 – no small cause [...]

    So glad to see this. Just this very morning I was wondering how Lynne Stewart was doing, having heard no news since she was released. I am glad to know she’s well enough to travel cross-country. I really have no answer for your end of the column question. I am a baby boomer myself. I [...]

    Oh – yeah, supposedly “tomcat” means intact male. So technically, neutered is no longer a “tom.” What the heck. So neutering wasn’t enough to wean him from the wandering life. At least, he doesn’t wander far, right?

    Aw, I missed that post. Such a sweet word-picture of the little boycat, perched on the counter. I remember you were worried about his rejecting food – picky li’l guy. Love the picture, too. “Cat ladies make good neighbors.” Gotta put that aside to make a pillow when I have time to stitch again. Or [...]

    Hey, nonq–thanks for the encouragement. Remember Toby Wollin? She told me to be sure to exercise and lift weights for the strength needed to cope with this parent’s end-of-life stuff. Bet, as the close sibling,you were doing most of the tasks, right? It’s true, flying back and forth is not helping. I would stay there longer, [...]

    Hello, firedoggies. Just by chance I stopped by last night and saw that it was a Caturday! Mason’s story about Smith reminds me of a bunch of cases read in law school, known as “booby-trap cases.” A victim of break-ins, etc., sets up a gun to be triggered by the door opening or the window [...]

    Oh, glad you checked in! Give Nagi a scritch for me, too. (and close the door firmly! lol)

    Yeah, emotionally exhausting is about right. I really wish I had a couple of siblings right now. ;)
    G’night!

    Box Turtle – good luck with the Fox kit(s). I read of an experiment in Russia, I think, in breeding tame foxes. They selected for tameness, friendliness to people, etc., like dog breeding, and it didn’t take too many generations to get some very dog-like foxes. But, oh, I hate to think of hungry foxes [...]

    Oh, I’m so glad I looked in and found this Caturday, even late! But ysd, I’m glad you’re sanguine, but I can’t bear the thought of Nagi moving on from you! He’s our link to Southern Dragon, we need to hear that he’s well. Have you talked to the lady who cooked up the chicken [...]
