Now Tonight Was Some Rock!
Well, now, tonight was much more the thing! I am much happier after tonight show than I was last night. It wasn't the best show ever, but it was a Paul and Lorraine show with OUR sort of crowd, people there for music and fun, who wanted to be a part of the show.
Amy came down again, which also made me happy, as I thought she got the short end of the stick having last nights show be her first. She brought me the coolest cat toys she had made too, I will let you know if they prove Bengal tough....
I don't think I am sick, which is also good. I got up early today and went to tend Dog, and after we had been for a bit of a walk said in an excited voice "Guess what we are going to do now?" WHAT, says he????? "We are going back to bed and sleep for another four hours!!!!!!!!!!!" GREAT!!!! He says, how cool is that??I can lie on the floor beside the bed, yes???????
Dogs are so cool with what ever, as long as they are with you.
Rock. Right. A fine show, much fun, made lots of people happy.
In the morning I have lots of people coming over to help me get this Spooky House into some sort of shape again. EVERYTHING is going to be done. It will feel good again by evening. It was funny, Merry housekeeper (one of the people I have bribed) said "Don't worry we have lots going on Saturday we are going to sleep IN on Sunday we won't be there early.." Which I thought a fine plan, until she added "We'll see you at 10:00"
Hmmmmm...Not MY idea of sleeping in....But my house will be clean and I will have a closet.
And onto the Leopard report...
Still hiding, but he is eating all his food, then putting his three toys in the food dish. Marilyn, or my F1 friends, what does this mean exactly? He is doing serious playing in his water dish, with water making into both his wet and dry food dishes, as well as the floor. Tonight I lobbed his piece of steak to him and it didn't make it, so I reached in to re-lob, and he hissed, but made no move to me, I re-tossed and talked nicely, and left.
I think his name may be Bela. It all seems to fit. Marilyn told me pets will often take on personalities of the names and Bela Fleck is certainly one of the nicest, coolest friendly people I have ever met. And he is in a class of his own, music wise, no one can touch him there. And his latest cd is all over the place with mystery and magic, can't stop playing it and hear something new every time I do.
And then we have Bela Lugosi, Mr Vampire, which fits with the Spooky House, and there is that great Bauhaus song ("The bats have left the bell tower" certainly fits this Kitty...) And there is something about Hungary this past year that has utterly enchanted me. I am in love with Budapest, need to get there.
So it may well be Bela.
One final thing, before I go off to bed, if you haven't been keeping up on the comments, I know, no easy task some days, I am doing a promotion, fundraiser for Great Lakes Bengal Rescue. I call it "Any Amount, Any cd's"
Make a donation via paypal, to firstname.lastname@example.org and send me an e-mail telling me what cd's you want. It really is that easy. I don't care how much you give, none of us has much these days.. This is a group that is doing amazing work finding homes for Bengals that need them, and we need the help.
Last week, we had to close to taking in fosters as we are full and have no room, we have had to turn away 12 since then. The deal applies if you adopt a Bengal or sign up as a foster home. We need fosters in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky most, but other states as well.
Fostering is a wonderful experience and a great way to get to know Bengals, and I will tell you , there is nothing like the feeling of placing a foster in a home with a family that will love it forever.
CD's available are, Flash Girls Maurice and I and Wild Queen, Folk Underground, Buried Things and Booty, and Lorraine a Malena, Mirror Mirror. Also Lorraine a Malena Tee shirts.
The offer will be open at least until Xams (GREAT stocking stufers!) Any amount, any cd's.
Donate. Then tell me. email@example.com
I know well that there is need everywhere, and I can't save the world, but I really want to do something for this part of it.
Love and magic,
