From Seven To Three

We used to have seven outdoor cats, Now we have three.  Over the years, they’ve disappeared one by one. Most recently, Little One went missing last Saturday morning.

I was in the shower, Sheba started barking then my wife started yelling from the back deck. Dogs were in the back yard, attacking our cats. I got out of the shower and she ran outside. I grabbed a pair of pants, and my baseball bat and followed her out.

No dogs, no cats in the yard. Wife said she looked over the side and saw three dogs surrounding Little One, our smallest cat. Little One jumped up on the fence and my wife saw dogs jaws reach up, grab her, and pull her down.

We found no blood on the ground, but we found where the dogs came under the fence, wrecking some banana plants.

Little One hasn’t been seen since and we fear the worst.

We used to have: BTK,  LeeLee, Shadow, LT, Albie, Goldie and Little One. Now just BTK (pronounced Bee TeeKee), Goldie and LeeLee were at breakfast. Shadow went missing while we were in Italy. From 7 cats to 3.

Saturday I went and got aluminum fencing wire and secured steel all along the bottom of the fence, to make it more secure.

I can’t imagine the horror of seeing what my wife saw.

Now it’s a cloudy Monday, time to go to work

Wouldn’t it be spooky to climb this tree? Scurry on up there and get me a coconut!

Yesterday two police, three dogcatchers and I went and captured the dog that bit me. The lady at the house said it wasn’t her dog, but she was going to go back and get the dog, then it will be hers. The owners have been warned about controlling their animals.

Tomorrow’s FRIDAY! Bring it!

Wednesday Feels Like Monday

Monday was a holiday, yesterday I took a sick day because of my leg, and supposedly going back to the dogs house with the dogcatcher. Now we’re supposed to go back today…

I’m going to be on TV tonight, because of the dog attack. I was interviewed. Also an online news service asked if they could use the picture of my bloody leg that I posted on Facebook.

It’s not bad today, just a couple of scabs.

Anyway, maybe tomorrow I’ll post the video of me in TV, if it happens and if I can extract it.

Have a good day!

What A Weekend.

It was, overall, a good weekend. Went to the beach, got a lot of rest, went out to nice restaurants and had some nice meals. Got attacked by dogs…

Since I got my Fitbit, I’ve been doing a lot more walking and running.
Yesterday, (Monday the Easter holiday) I went for a walk from Cobalt Coast Resort west towards some apartments I lived in years ago. On my waay west, I passed a group of quite aggressive dogs. I walked by, mostly by ignoring them just keeping moving. One large dog, a black mastiff looking big dog came closest and butted my leg with his nose.

So I got by the dogs unscathed, and continued down the ironshore (jagged rock beach) to the sandy beach. I hung out for a while, picking up a few shells and poing around. I had pretty much decided to take the long way home, to avoid walking past the dogs again, when I saw a woman, raking the sand where the dogs were. I figured that since it was her house, they must be her dogs, and I decided to head home the way I came.

As I approached, she apparently got done raking and headed toward her house, about the same time, here come the dogs., much more aggressive this time.

things get pretty blurry after that, I was surrounded on three sides, five dogs, very close, barking and showing teeth and nipping at me. One was a very evil looking grey german shepard type with a very skinny nose. There was the mastiff looking dog again, probably the least scary, a white dog, and I can’t really remember the others. Three more dogs came from the house next door, two doberman looking dogs and I think the third was yellow.

I started calling the lady for help, and the dogs got more aggressive because of my yelling. I was reversing out onto the sharp rock and lost a shoe. At some point I got bit on the shin pretty good, but I don’t really even know which dog it was that bit me.

The lady arrived and got two of the dogs, I remember her saying that all these dogs weren’t hers. At some point, she said “GO!” and I replied that I had to get my shoe.

Somehow I got my shoe, and was headed down the beach.  I wasn’t that shook up, the whole thing seemed unreal. I ran into two people down a ways, and told them about the dog attack, they already had been warned. Apparently these dogs have a reputation.

My leg was bleeding pretty good, and I called my wife, then the police. The police came and we went looking for the house with the dog. We found the house with the three, but these dogs really only came to look because of the ruckus mde by the other five attacking me. We couldn’t find the front of the house with the five dogs, or if we did, the dogs were inside and the lady wouldn’t come out. The policeman wouldn’t walk out on the beach where I was attacked, and I don’t blame him, as he had no weapon to defend against dog attack.

Today, the policeman and I are supposed to go back, out to the beach, with the dog catcher.

We’ll see what happens..

Fast Runner

I realized today what a fast runner I am. i spilled coffee grounds this morning, and apparently, it takes me the same amount of time to clean up spilled coffee grounds as it takes me to run my 1.8 mile course, because by the time I got it cleaned up, It was the same time on the clock as when I get into the shower.

i didn’t run today, spilled coffee, didn’t have time.

If Ditto was still alive, it`d be his birthday. Also, on this day in 1979, I left Silver Spring, MD for boot camp.

Yesterday at work, I ha annual safety training, all day. Got it again this afternoon, and tomorrow morning.

There’s your daily randomness. Havva goodun! 

Internet Down Mostly

It’s been frustrating around here lately. The internet has, for all intents and purposes, been down for days. It was up briefly last night, at about three quarter speed, but mostly it”s been what I call down. Even an email message takes an eternity to load.
image
I’m paying for 10 Meg per second download speed, and lately it’s been about 300 or 700K. Every six months, I have to call the company, and it’s a nuisance.

The weatherman has been calling for rain every day for the past few weeks or so, but we haven’t been getting much rain. Now the weatherman is saying sunny today, and rain tommorrow, so I’m riding the scooter today. It will be the first time since week before last.

Sheba went to the vet yesterday, she won”t put her right rear foot down. The doctor found liquid on her hip, an infection, apparently. Sheba has to take a whole pile of pills three times a day, and you can tell she doesn’t feel good.

Ad that”ll do me for today! Have a good day!

Rebel Without A Cause

Yesterday I took this pic of Sheba, defiantly sitting on this bench on the back porch. Look on her face said she knew she wasn’t supposed to be there. She was so cute. From now on, she can sit there any time she wants.

FRIDAY! We get off early today because of the work Christmas party. I’m not going because I didn’t RSVP in time because I was in Mexico. I don’t mind not going.

It’s going to be another great day! Have a good weekend!

Twas a nice weekend

Ready to go!

It was a good weekend. Sunday I took Sheba to the beach. She absolutely loved it.
Sunday afternoon, The Wife went to a Costa Rica bar be cue at a friends house. I stayed home and watched American football. Tje Redskins MUST win tonight. They must, or else there is a three way tie for first in the division. What a mess.

Here’s another pic.

Wonder what’s the difference between these two? Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, they say. Cheerieos must loooooove Fruit Loops!

Hava good week!

Wet Wednesday

image

It’s Wednesday morning. I’m sitting out on the back porch and it’s raining trying to stay dry.

I did an image search for wet Wednesday, it must be a big day for all the strip clubs, because I got tons of sexy pictures on google images. For example:

It was raining yesterday when I went to work, but then it got sunny and I went to the beach for lunch, that was nice. Hopefully it will do the same thing today.

Yesterday I went to grocery shopping and today I have to start cleaning the house for the cat / dog sitter.

I guess that’ll do’er for today.
Havva goodun.
