Holding pattern, the hideout
Tough Cars and tough people:
Dar, up in the north woods of Wisconsin said they got 7-8 inches of snow, I thought of a picture Woody of NY put on last year!
For today (Wednesday):
I stopped and talked to my neighbor Michelle who was looking after Stormy D before I was. She knows the kitties are here but didn’t know where. She was worried that Stormy was using the same trash pile as last time when dogs, coons or mean Toms got all but Zorro.
I told her where they were. They are no more than 15 feet (but up 4ft) from the trash pile which has grown some. I told her they were safe from dogs, that was for sure.
Stormy D and I are trespassing, but the house is in sad shape and the owner is seldom in the area. This is looking at the back porch area:
This is specific, you may can make out one of Stormy’s eyes. The little mother gets a cup of milk delivered to her palatial surroundings and a cup of Kitty-food. I just barely can reach the milk in without spilling it.
Bathroom: I have only to install the door-lock and also an entry lock and deadbolt on the entry door I cut in. I was planning to have the locks ‘keyed like the house keys’ but with the ‘social distant’ thing and the locksmith, I decided against it.
We have actually watched some TV to try to keep up to date, but it still drives me bonkers that most news folk are trained to get the most words in in 15 seconds that is possible. The only thing nice I have heard is folks are making masks for emergency & medical folk.
On that note our own blogger ‘Lisa’ http://www.lifeawayfromtheofficechair.com/2020/04/mask-extenders.html. has been making mask extenders for medical folk also. Immediately I understood. I have noticed that most of the masks hook behind the ears. I have only worn dust and paint masks and they go over the head. The ear hooks looked uncomfortable to me. I saw a lady the other day having someone help her get her hair untangled, completely throwing the ‘social distance’ thing away. These extenders allow the same masks to go behind the head.
