Good morning John! I hope you had a good Easter! Did you have an Egg hunt and baskets?

Easter was a work day for me (orders, stock) and tax work. But I did make Easter vigil mass Saturday evening. It was strange, they of course had none last year and this year it was not as big or long as they used to be.

Nova is still having to go to the vet 3 times a week and he is still not eating much. It is harder and harder to get him to eat. Of course we know this happens with kidney failure from past experience. Still just trying to keep him comfortable and hydrated. Andromeda is not eating well all the time now either. We are so focused on Nova we have not checked her kidney disease to see if it is entering failure too yet. *sigh*

We did have a big Easter egg hunt here.  Karly and her little brother came over and I hid eggs all over the yard, and had 2 baskets of goodies here in the house, and one "golden" egg was hidden in {iggy's cage.  Afterward we got Kentucky Fried Chicken and took everybody to play at the park.

Kansas City is slowly opening back up so I've played up there a couple of times now.  I really hate that drive.

Piggy and Van Gogh are still doing fine.  I'm a little surprised at how affectionate Van Gogh has been lately and still amazed at how much Piggy eats and how little he drinks.  I know he's getting enough from when I clean out the cage.  The experiment using a blanket instead of litter had mixed results.  I think it was actually better for Piggy but a big problem getting clean.  Piggy and Van Gogh both seem pretty content at the moment.

I'm sorry Nova and Andromeda are having such a rough time.  It must be especially hard for both to be having problems at once.

I looked at your webcam this morning at 11:20 and the fog was just crazy.  No fog here but the temperature has been up and down and up and down.  Great weather for potholes and getting sick.  John

Glad you had such a nice Easter!

As a kid, I never liked hard boiled eggs. As an adult I love them! I love soft boild eggs and egg salad too! Yummy!

Rather than a blanket, have you thought of newspaper shredded ontop of a whole newspaper? May be easier to clean?

Fog! Oh, mor ethan that. Snow. It was 76 this weekend and today we are at the low altitude of snow and it has been snowing/reaining all day and the passes are expecting fore by tonight. This is the closest pass to me: MacDonald Pass

  I was just the opposite.  I liked hard boiled eggs as a kid but don't like them now.  I'm strictly a fried or scrambled man.  As far as it goes, nobody had any real eggs this Easter.  They were all plastic and full of candy.

For Piggy's litter I've been using shredded, recycled paper.  It's not too bad but we use a lot of it and I was hoping to get away from buying it all the time.  I'm giving the blanket another shot tomorrow.  I'm cutting down the size of it so it may not be the problem it was.

I'm pretty sure we're done with snow.  I chased a bumble bee and a wasp out of the house a couple days ago.  I have no idea where they got in.  I don't get along well with wasps.  As the expression goes, "they drew first blood".

I was kicking butt in a chess game last night, then one move before winning, I stupidly stalemated him.  I didn't realize he had no legal moves.  That drives me crazy!  I couldn't leave it at that though, so I came back and won the next one.  John

It is funny how we can flip on a taste. When I was little I LOVED spanich, then I HATED it till I was about 22, then I loved it again, especially raw.

With Piggy, what about a small pan with real cat litter?

I suspect we are also done with the snow (I hope, my summer tires are now back on).

Don't remind me of the wasps! Last year there was always a bunch in the workshop where I do my orders. I never could figer where they were coming in from. The other day when it was in the 70's here, there was one in there again.
