    What a sweet (no pun intended!) story, tt, of the swapping of Hoodsie halves.

    Re: August 2011

    My docile little Cheerio showed her feisty side this afternoon - pretty baby hadn't been out there this morning, but this afternoon I was talking on the kitchen phone and pacing back and forth by the door, as I'm apt to do, and out he comes from under the shrub, crying.  When I finished the call (well, actually, I excused myself and said I would call her back in a few minutes), I went out to pet him and talk to him.  You should have seen and heard Cheerio - it was like it was the first time she had gotten a look at him, and when I tried to get back in the door, she practically knocked me down trying to get at him!  He sat right down on the walk and just looked at her, but she was all for jumping through the screen to let him know in no uncertain terms that this was HER house!  Guess any ideas I get from time to time of bringing another cat into the house had better be scrapped.

    Well she told you tt!!  Cheerio does not want to share you and her jealous side came out for sure.  Kinda sweet though : )  And if pretty baby was smart, he wouldn't be so calm.  Cheerio can hold her own, after all she is a grand dame : )

    tt, I've had to do that with my son regarding the Hoodsies. Anyone remember when they gave you wooded spoons to use with those?? Or when you used the lid as a spoon :)
    Cheerio was just letting that the other cat know who was the at in charge there.

    Welllll, when I was a kid, we not only got a wooden spoon to eat it with, but on the underside of the cover was a picture of a movie star!  How is this for unsanitary - we used to lick them off, collect them and then swap with each other!  Wish I had kept my collection.

    Nothing wrong with that tt and my friends I would share everything too but I don't recall getting sick hardly at all as a kid.  Germs are healthy in some aspect so you build an immunity to them.  People are too crazy with the hand sanizers today IMO..

    That sounds delicious tt.  I love cheese omlets so I have one with bacon or sausage a couple of times a month, especially if i don't feel like cooking.  mm..........  now I want that tonight instead of the pork!  LOL!

    People are very germaphobic now.  People also don't let kids be kids. 

    I know some people that are helicopter parents and it makes me want to scream.  Let little Johnny fall, he will be ok, kids fall. Why can't you take your baby to a mall? Germs? Germs are everywhere.

    Hope DH finds it is something he is able to take care of.  Pingo makes it sound easy, I hope it is.

    Oh, wait, I seem to remember there was a thin wax paper-like sheet over the lid, so that would have been what we licked off, then peeled it.  Yeah, must have been, they wouldn't have put the inked picture right against the ice cream.  Well now, that's not so bad, is it.

    Kar, bless that guy of yours! Truly. I can imagine how much it would have cost you ----- a lot.
    Guess that hoe of his is paying you back. It is like my sewing machine, it has paid it self back many times over. - Pingo

    I'm now inside following some of allready's advice with a glass of wine.  We don't have any chocolate cake. :(

    You chicken, you! The wine is good, but chocolate cake would not be so appealing to me in this case - just saying. - Pingo

    tt, that sounds so good to me. Real homey.
    I picked up a tuna steak, which is marinating right now. Will grill it on my grill pan, when DH comes home. Will serve it with some sauteed green and red pepper strips and some Wasabi mayo. DH hd a difficult day today, so I thought I would make him  something, I know he really likes, and it is easy enough to do. - Pingo

    I'll send over one of the last pieces of the lemon meringue pie I made.

    (to kargiver, in place of chocolate cake!)

    When I reread some of my own posts sometimes, I wonder, "How can my cholesterol be down?" !!  Actually, I came off the statins and went on a natural substance that has a statin in it - don't know how long it will last with none of the side effects I usually get from the others, but right now, I'm very happy.  Who wouldn't be if you could eat lemon meringue pie and Hoodsies?

    Please keep that in mind. Just like raising a child. No means "NO"! In your case, you needed to for reasons. But many parents give in. That is why we have so many uncontrolled children today. So many parents are ambiguous. What is the kid to believe in? One day yes - the next, no.
    My niece is raising a couple of completely uncontrollable children.  Cute as buttons. But they are whiners and tantrum children to a point, that it makes everyone uncomfortable.
    How is the project coming long?

    That's great you found something that does the trick and with no side effects. Gracie has finally settled down having figured out that all the crying in the world isn't getting us to let her out.   DH has covered the sewage pit, but it's not Gracie-proof.  Goodness, what a mess she could make.
