Pots are on as I can't sleep anyway!

Looks like March is coming in like a sedate lion ( only going to have winds up to 20 mph).

Happy "Ides Month", Saint Pat's month, Easter month, don't know what else right off the top of my head.  I'm gonna pass on the beverages, gonna hit the hay in a few minutes.  S'posed to be 80 degrees F here tomorrow, calm; allergies are in full high gear, driving me nuts.

Thanks for the coffee...it is month end closing at work.  You'd think that after a few years of balancing and closing out the energy consumption, I'd have it down packed.  But, every few months I seem to find another way to make a mistake that slips past my checks....It is hard to find your own mistakes when you are perfect and humble as I am....I could use an extra cup.

Blue sky with scattered fluffy cumulus.  52 right now but could break 70 later.  We’ll see what the winds do, so the cats can have a backyard excursion this afternoon.  I’m already getting the “open, open, open” looks from in front of the patio door.

Weather looks like a carbon copy of yesterday, except high thin cirrus are replacing yesterday’s cumulus, and lower wind speeds.

Jake got about an hour outside yesterday, but Samantha doesn’t do wind well, so she just sat in the doorway.

Tonight’s menu is grilled pork steaks and roasted taters.  So Jake should get some more outside time tonight while I'm cooking.

Same here; mostly clear with a few high clouds, warm, supposed to go seventy five or eighty today, light breezes. 

Theo, (the Other Cat, I just call him "OC", or just "Cat"; (long story there - when we got him, he was going on his third time returned to the county shelter, and would have been automatically put down; the guy we got him from was in the Air Force,  rotated home and thought he would settle for a while, and he wanted a cat.  So he went to an adoption event at PetCo, and got "Bill", renamed him "Theo", and then got re-deployed, so he put him on Craig's List.  I just tripped over the ad by accident, but Sammy, the cat we had was short of companionship for the first time in his life, so we went and got "Theo".  He woudn't respond to any name, though (who can blame him?), so I just started referring to him as "The Other Cat"  thus "OC") and Ellie, the lap dog who I just call "Dog" ('nuther long story, same general idea)), have a pet door through the wall so they go in and out at their pleasure.  OC won't climb or jump up on stuff too often because he was de-clawed as a kitten and it seems he has real tender front feet, so I don't worry about them getting out too much.  Besides, OC is a consummate "fraidy cat", and Dog thinks she is a lot bigger than her ten pounds until she gets challenged, and they are softies, as well; something they don't know comes into the yard, they head inside, pronto.  When they do that, it raises a flag to me, so I go check what's going on.

Got some sort of holey red meat in the fridge, yams in the veggie bowl, and salad fixin's to use up, so I might make some sort of "fried" steak.  Time for another cuppajoe.

Later.

EP

I started naming my male cats after John Wayne characters (I’ve always kept a male and a female).  Capt. Jake Cutter was scarfed from a litter of stray kittens just before we left our apartment and moved into our house.  His predecessor was J. B. Books who was a shelter rescue kitten.  Samantha (our current female) was also a shelter rescue kitten.  Jake is a very pale yellow tabby and Sam is all most solid black.  I refer to them as Ebony and Ivory when they sit next to each around the house.

Samantha is a roly-poly shaped cat that doesn’t like to move out of the way, in the dark she is sometimes referred to as the football.

All my cats have been spayed/neutered and chipped.  They have all their claws, but Jake is the only one that goes over the 6 foot fence.  That’s why they only go out with human supervision.  I’m trying to get our neighborhood quail population back up to the 50 or so that used to run up and down the street in the front of the house.  Rental property neighbor’s cats have reduce the quail population drastically!   They are also the main reason Jake goes over the fence if not watched (he likes defending his back yard from alien cats).

Ours have been declawed on the fronts,Russ-T. So, they don't go outside at all. Snowy is a fairly heavy girl, but not as big as a Maine Coon. When she jumps off something she makes a pretty good thud. She does play with our new addition pup. They're a riot to watch having a sparring match with their paws. The pup has bob and weave down pretty good. Speaking of the pup, we found out that the pound was a little off as to breed. They stated she was a peek mix, turns out she's a Tibetan Spaniel. If not pure, she's darn close to it. Somebody didn't know what they had Roll Eyes Shocked Wink

Like I said Samantha is rather plump and she does make it clear when she jumps off the cat tree.  She also lends no credence to Robert Frost's "THE fog comes on little cat feet."  Roll Eyes  She sounds more like a pony running around on the hardwood floors.  Grin

Going to a church fish fry here. Only I get the baked fish, it's really good,too. The guy that does the baked taters is an absolute master with them. Best I've ever had. In the 30's here,cloudy. We had light snow over night, just covered the grassy areas and some walks and drives. The streets were basically just wet Roll Eyes

Once a month I get to get the deep fryer out and create something to clog up the arteries.   Roll Eyes It helps get approval from the wife if it’s fish ‘cause I use her late father’s beer batter recipe for the fish and onions.  So it reminds her of when he used to make it.
