Hi David John And Peggy I am still here just not much to say I sleep during the day pretty good since I am working nights again but I get up and eat and shower and take care of the cats needs they are all fine Noah had a dentist appointment in January and lost all her teeth but she has done real good is putting on weight again since her mouth doesn't hurt anymore and it is time to go to work again but only for about 3 more months. I have been checking on Health insurance and Social security and my Union pension. So I will be retiring around June 1 I am looking forward to that I may find a light job but right now the plan is just enjoy time with the cats and walk my neighborhood for my health reasons I had heart issues in 2018 and had a stent placed but have done real good since changed diet and get more exercise. Anyway hope you and the cats and piggy are all well. Tim

Hey Tim!  Great to see you and really glad things are going so well.  Everybody's OK here.  The weather's been chilly and rainy here but that's a lot better than that zero degree stuff.

I still check in here first thing every morning but it's been mostly quiet lately.  I think David has been working a lot lately and my work has picked up a lot since Kansas City is starting to open back up.  I do wish I could just sit back and take it easy for a while, but I'd probably miss doing it.  John

Hi Tim,

Glad you are okay. I do not think I could sleep all day easily. The cats would be up and wake me all the time.

Poor Noah! I assume canned food only now?

I dropped health insurance a couple years ago in favor of a healthshare. It ended up costing me a LOT less and covers a lot more. Make sure you also check out some healthshares to factor against the insurance. :)

What kind of diet change dod you do? I am glad you are healthier now. :)

Hi John,

Yeah, Nova is taking up more of my free time for his 3 vet visits a week now and I have had a bunch of sales and trying to play with new toy ideas. That all takes my attention away. Sorry. :/

Taking care of the furkids does take precedence.  Since you take Nova to the vet 3 days a week, do you take him to work with you?  If it didn't bother him too much it would save you a lot of drive time.

Had to get out and get hay and bedding for Piggy yesterday.  He gets celery, strawberries, carrots, apple and occasionally part of a banana, but he goes through hay the most.  It still amazes me how much food he can eat.

Had to have work done on my guitar last week.  That's a little scary because I've had it now for 43 years and I'm used to it, and if they get it wrong I'll have trouble playing it.  Cost a lot less than I figured, it was back a lot quicker that I hoped, and it plays just the same.  I've got a spare I can use but it's harder to play and I'd probably make more mistakes with it.  Got to keep that money coming in.  John

No, Nova does not come to my office. I work across the road from our vet, so I drive home about 11:15am (30+ minutes), get him (and now he knows better and hides from me) and drive him to the vet, then go back to the office. I'll pick him up at the vet after work then go home.

Hope you get the guitar fixed soon. :)
