Hi David John and Peggy I am still here just nothing going to talk about even though I did go glamping in Pigeon Forge June 6-9 and went to the Ripleys Aquarium in Gatlinburg and walked around there and ate breakfast 1 morning it is a tourist town at the entrance to Great Smoky mountains I hadn't been there for a few years last time I was there I went to a concert at Sugarlands Distillery by the Barefoot Movement I don't drink alcoholic beverages but they make moonshine there. I also went to a movie at a theatre first time since the 1990's but I am enjoying not having to go to work. John I was glad to read the Cheri was out shopping with the grandkids so at least she feels good enough to do so.But you need to be careful doing shows when it so hot. It has been pretty hot here too guess it is everywhere from what you and David say. David I hope you get your roof fixed up right and the the cats settle down to a routine again I would like to see them an camera again. Any way You all Take Care. Tim
Hey Tim, great to hear from you! Hope you had a great time on your "glamping" trip. I rarely drink but when I do, it's definitely not moonshine. That stuff hits me like a rock.
Cheri will be in the hospital all day today. I don't know what she'll feel like but she'll be home this afternoon.
I did tell Paul that after this year, I'm not playing out in the Sun anymore. I'd quit doing it now but we've still got a lot of bookings like that this Summer. 2 years ago I did get too hot playing the State Fair. We were in a huge tent but I went walking around the fairgrounds during a break and when I got back on stage I was feeling dizzy and thought I'd have to stop playing and sit down. But after 10 minutes I felt fine. I was very lucky. Last year they didn't have the fair because of the virus, but I'm booked there again this year, same place, same big tent. Believe me, I plan to take it very easy this time. John
Hi Tim and John (and Peggy if lurking),
The roof at home is being replaced (contractor is God awful slow) and the racket is terrifying Perseus. He spent the last coupld days hiding under my bed ALL day and threw up a bunch last night. I guess it will repeat for him today, poor guy. The heat passed (we hit over 106f Monday) and it was about 82 yesterday and Monday will be in the low 70's.
Tim, I am you had fun glamcamping. And like you, I do not drink. I have not had alcohol in something like 15 years I think, I have never been to the Smokey Mountains myself. So is it odd not going to work now?
John, yes, take it easy in the heat. You know we are not spry chickens any more. ;) How does Cheri feel today?
David and the CoolCyberCats
Hi David John and Peggy No I am not missing going to work and it doesn't seem odd not going. Both Your and John's temps are hotter than mine in tn but we will back up in 90's fri and sat. Sorry Perseus is so scared of the roof noise how is Apollo does he miss his sister when I lost Shailene her brother Poe didn't seem to notice she wasn't here. I love the mountains and Gatlinburg and will try to visit more and it is usually cooler there there is quite a lot of things to do there hiking and sightseeing and swimming but somewhat dangerous swimming when I was in high school we played hooky and went up there and a classmate drowned while tubing.I hope the roof will be done soon and Perseus can relax again and like David said be careful in the heat John and I hope Cheri is doing ok and not feeling bad. Take Care Tim
If I ever quit, I figure I'll be a relief for a while, but then I worry that I'll start missing it and it would be hard to start things back up again from scratch.
Piggy and Van Gogh are used to things getting a little crazy here because the grandkids are here a lot, and they do make things noisy. Not sure how they'd feel about a lot of banging and bumping going on on the roof though. I guess if the work is going slow, seems more likely they're doing it right.
Cheri feels much better than I was afraid she would. I heard her up making noise at 5:00 AM this morning and I was afraid she might be sick. Turns out she was just telling her grandson to get to bed! This is going to be a long year. John
Hi Tim, APollo is acting different. Removing the work being done outside, he has NOT been using the couch (where the cam is) and is opting for sleeping in the carrier on the floor (about 8 feed from the couch). He has always been a LOUD with a volume that just does not seem possible, but he is at it a lot more since the day after ^Nova^ and ^Andie^ left. I am making it a point to talk to him all the time when home now and try to get him to follow me in hopes of occupying him. He used to sleep in one of the cat beds on my bed at night and day, but now he does not. He sometimes would use the heated cup ^Andie^ loved so much but I have not seen him in it at all now. In the evening he wanders screaming in the volumous yowl voice and I try to get his attention and pet him. It scares me since he has lived with his litter mate sister since birth (17years - his bday is June 30th so really 16.9 years). *sigh*
Perseus is starting to seemingly get a little closer (location-wise not friendship fully) with him. SInce his best friend ^Nova^ is gone he has only Apollo now. They would NEVER be closer than a foot apart before (as Apollo did not like him much and Perseus was afraid of him), but now Perseus will walk past him and I have seen him pay about 2 feet from him. I am hoping they become closer before it is Apollo's time.
You should go on a vacation to Yellowstone!
