Thank you. xo

*nods* they do. On the plus - you know to "brace yourself" since it seems to be a universal law lol

Yes, they are the reason I don't move - or ever want to.

I was looking out the front window watching what I thought was a big rainstorm and high winds. I didn't see much. I saw a a big storm, rain hit the ground, went up about 6 feet in the air, then everything outside started to spin and I thought "Oh that doesn't look good" and then I saw my shed roof travel all the way up the street like it grew wings and land on a neighbors front yard. Next thing I know shingles took flight and I heard what sounded like a super loud electrical explosion - and no power. Wind storms like that / Tornados are not a thing here normally.

Looking out the window I see like 5 neighbors heading to my house waving frantically freaking out. They all came to make sure I was okay and then told me what they saw. YIKES.

They are totally great! I'm very vey lucky / blessed to have them.
You do, don't you? :lol: Not fair, but it was it is.

Neighbours are important, you probably see them every day after all.

My parents have put down a deposit on a female Sheepadoodle puppy for sometime next year. Mom wants an old-fashioned name for her, so I'm combing every Victorian name list I can find to help :compsurfing:
I really wish people would stop buying into designer breeds. Make sure they keep it trimmed super short. A sheepadoodle doesn't have hair like a poodle or like a sheep dog, it is impossible to brush out, ties up every tiny piece of dirt imaginable, and causes horrible and painful mats that cause the dogs to suffer for their entire lives. The fact that anyone breeds them is outrageous to me. We have one that comes to my work that is constantly struggling to just be a dog because this mix of dogs was never meant to exist. I have groomed all kinds of dogs, and none have coats as horrible as this one. It takes me an hour to groom this dog when a well bred poodle can be groomed in 15 minutes. People need to learn they can't breed things just cause they are cute.

Sorry, I am very passionate about dogs. No mix that didn't happen by accident should exist. No purebred without health testing should exist. People need to think about the consequences of their actions and do their research!

Believe me, my parents are very responsible pet owners. They are aware of the grooming requirements.

So this morning I was watching the cats on the cam and this time it looked like Treasure was testing Tourmaline. Tourmaline was eating and Treasure slowly crept past like he was the one being chased off. He slinked across the street and stopped, turned around to see if Tourmaline was coming. But Tourmaline just sat there staring at him like "What should I do now?" They probably would have stayed that way if my neighbor across the street didn't come outside which sent Treasure back across the street into the back yard. Tourmaline just sat there and watched and then walked off. I have never seen such behavior before. It almost looks like Treasure is teaching Tourmaline how to survive. And I say that because 99% of the time when they aren't engaging in such manner they'll just be sitting within eyesight of each other distracted by birds. Sopdet is also warming up a bit to Tourmaline.

Looking at a new apartment tomorrow, wish me luck.

(The guy said it was fine for me to bring the cat, I hope he doesn't expect me to bring the cat to the viewing 🤔. I know it's a stupid question, but some people are weird).

I tried it on myself. Necklace with a locket held over my right wrist.

My friend said her sister's friend did it and it was accurate and then she tried it on herself and her sister and they got different answers. Last night, I figured, "What the heck... I'll give it a shot." I'm usually very skeptical of these things. But I used an old locket... was perfectly still... and the necklace started swinging violently without me doing anything. I thought it was just me so I removed my wrist from underneath it and it wouldn't swing until my wrist was directly under the locket. I actually dropped it and was freaking out. I always had a feeling I'd have a boy in the future... not sure why. But I tried it 4 times and I got boy each time. I panicked for hours. Put the locket away and tried it again later. Got the same results only this time, I tried it more than 4 times but the necklace didn't swing. It moved around as if it was confused and just stopped. I even pivoted my arm slightly and it continued to follow the direction of my arm. Up and down and up and down violently as if someone was moving it. I found this funny because I also have always wanted to have 4 kids.
