    Describing Burdock's color

    I know that Burdock isn't any special breed- he started out as a feral that we adopted. What I would like to know is how to describe his coloration, as he has stripes, swirls, and a few spots, so I thought to ask those who would be better versed in the terminology than I.

    Question of the Day, Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    My greatest on the hit parade also entailed a trip to the ER. I was at work, removing a 1,000 lb.-plus hydraulic cylinder from a crane-mounted shear. I was using a steel shaft, about 3ft long and 3in in diameter, to drive the large pin that secured the fixed end to the shear body. I stopped to...

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    Cat fur? Michele was combing Miss Eleanor last night, only a couple of days after I did. She got enough fur to make a fair start on a blanket. There was a ball of fur the size of a cantaloupe.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    After my back surgery, I had demerol prescribed, but never asked for it. The only med I took was Darvocet N100, and little of that. On the other hand, when they tried to get me out of bed the morning after, it hurt so bad that in clenching my jaw, I split a tooth and never realized it- until it...

    I will, assuming I can ever find it- and it isn't on a slide.

    Somewhere in my dusty archives, I have a similar shot, taken from the summit of Whiteface Mountain in NY's Adirondacks. It was of what is called the High Peaks region, which includes Mt. Marcy- at over 5,300 feet, the highest point in the state.

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    You really have to be careful of pain meds. Michele had to have surgery to remove a ganglion cyst, and they gave her Valium as a post-op. She lost a week- simply no memory of anything that happened. I told her that I was going to tie a string around her ankle to keep her from floating away.

    Post your sleeping beauties!!!

    I think I know now why they call them catnaps. Stretch will sleep for 20 or 30 minutes, get up and stretch, and then go back to sleep.

    Gardening 2020

    Our problem isn't sand, but instead red clay, with it's attendant lack of drainage. I have one of those mini tiller attachments for my string trimmer, but even with that, and various soil amendments over the years, it still is a battle. Even mulching doesn't seem to stop the formation of a hard...

    Gardening 2020

    Sometimes, I think that I should construct a bunch of raised planting beds with flagstone or crushed stone walkways between them. Raised, because of the poor quality of the local soil, and stone so I can get rid of my lawn mower. Our back yard is too small for anything really extensive, so it is...
