Tomorrow I'm going to go see my friends Gretchen and Steve for the first time since he got the sad news last week that he is losing his battle with cancer. 

That's going to be a difficult visit, but enjoy visiting while he still feels good.

I think it would be nice if someone adopted Jane along with one of her kittens.  Are there any two who are particularly attached?  When I wanted Bogie & Craig wanted Bacall (Bryan didn't really want either & kept rolling his eyes at us-lol) we took them both, more because they were so attached we didn't want to separate them.  That is why we ended up with 4 cats.

Fred and Skip play together a lot; Elmore and Cillaliz play together a lot; Antonia will play alone or with the others.

The pastor's wife brought the chirping toy, which they love.

Is it a bird or the toy we saw dangling for them?

It will be sad to split them up, but sadder would have been the alternative. That's what we remember.

Difficult as tomorrow will be, DR Cillaliz, I'm sure Gretchen and Steve will be glad to see you and will appreciate your visit.

So true.  Do you pass along little comments about them, like a good way to pair them up.  Antonia should go with Jane then ;)

The yellow thing I'm dangling at the beginning has a chirper in it. Then I think I tossed a mouse on a string to get Cillaliz to jump down and get in the picture.

Richard and I just had small servings of ice cream - Edy's Slow Churned.  He had Mint Chocolate Chip and I had Caramel Delight.

The visit tomorrow will be difficult.  I'm not so sure he is still feeling good, my call today didn't sound to positive.  Gretchen has been there for me through good and bad.  She's truly my best friend, so I plan to be there as much as I can.   I'll go back again on Friday and stay through Labor Day

DR Jane re: your bear comments last night (you asked what kind of bears were in the forrest).

As i mentioned there is a sign near the lake with a picture of a bear.

But (and i thought i had said this) there are no bears. I would never bike there if i thought there were bears.

I live in the suburbs. Where would the bear come from?

There is a picture of a rabbit and a fox and a bear. But like the little boy told his friend you're not gonna find a bear or a fox. It's just a little scary seeing the pic. I'm sure that pic has been there for years. But if anyone had ever seen a bear i'm sure it would be in the news and people would not be biking/walking there!


Silly me, I figured if there were photos of wild life then they really were there.  Bears have been seen in Ashland as have other large wildlife.

Everyone still walks, hike & bike the trails here, even with the sighting so why wouldn't they where you live. ;)

Cause we don't do bears in the suburbs!

At first when i saw the signs i was a bit concernced. But i would be shocked to see a bear.

Maybe in remote areas people are more used to hiking among bears. But in the big cities i don't think anyone would walk/bike if they knew there could be a bear. I know i wouldn't!

Thanks.  Tomorrow I am providing the comic relief.  Steve missed the mentos geyser when we did it the end of July so I have 10 packages of mentos and so far, 4- 2 liter bottles of diet coke.  I am going to put on a display for him, lol.   They are looking forward to it.   I'm also taking some fun gifts including 3 different "Go Fish for Art" card games (modern, renaissance and classics)  They love art, so I thought that may be fun.  You match up 4 works by the same artist - there's a cheat sheet if you need it

Now that Keith is skinny we pulled out t-shirts he hasn’t been able to wear in years and years that I couldn’t part with.  One shirt has a bear on the front and says “Support your right to arm bears”.  I always thought it was a great anti hunting shirt, now I’m thinking I would not want the bear on the trail armed.  ;D

I don't know exactly why but i have been starving lately. Every day.

I've been biking a lot every weekday. So maybe that has something to do with it. But i can't remember ever feeling so hungry all the time.

Btw, DR Cillaliz good luck with your diet. I have been trying to eat less bad stuff. And have been exercising a lot. I really want to get so that all my smallest clothes fit. I'm sick of not being able to wear them!

Jennifer, I didn't realize initially your biking path with the trail, and wildlife signs, was still the city.

Good Evening!

I went to a picnic. I had a massage. And then I had ice cream. Raspberry Chip, to be exact.  :)

How about you?

DR Jennifer, the part of WW that helped me the most was keeping track of every thing I eat, everything.

Just a few months ago there was a bear in the middle of Seattle.  And we had one in Tacoma last summer, so don't get overly relaxed, Jennifer.
