Hello!
Is you mom there now? How goes everything? All is quiet around here, kids are either working or moving out and wow, do I enjoy my days! Fish are great, family is too. Summer has been pretty mild and hopefully we'll be getting some rains today and tomorrow. My bf is from a small town in ND that is only about 30 miles from where the big Minot flooding is going on. He likes over here just fine, we get 4 seasons and it's rare there's anything too extreme though we do flood periodically. Never where I've lived in this valley though, always been pretty lucky in choosing a domicile. Guess thats about it, this day is moving along and I've got tanks to clean, plants to water and chores to do so that I can enjoy some project and some reading time later. Hope you aren't working too hard, after all you did for the fathers rights campaign, you deserve a bit of down time! Oh, when do you think you'll hear about that?

Hanging tough
Perhaps you could tell Rita it would be easier if once in awhile you had remote control...hehe, can't hurt (much) to ask, can it? hehe. Still chilly here, hoping our summer will pretty much stay like this, I'm not interested in temps over 90, ever. Been keeping busy lately, chores, reading and some movie time. This weekend will be a busy one though, have a bunch of painting to do which means moving furniture. Almost feel sorry for my troops, almost. Hope you have a very nice weekend, after the week you've just been through, you deserve it!

Hello!
forgot to ask how the non-smoking campaign going? Have a good friend who as of today is 8 days of no chew. He's finally past the kill them all stage and is starting to realize life without it is already making him feel better. guess that's it for now, hope you are enjoying your hard candies!

Hi
Did you manage to give away any platys. My female is as big as a house again and I suppose there will be lots and lots of fry to come. I gave some away but still have about 8 more of the last batch. I love all your pictures and your avatars are cool. Good luck with the quitting and have a great day, bye

lemon drops
Nice you are toughing it out, and your breath will be so lemony fresh! Got all my tanks cleaned and polished yesterday, inside and out. Forgot how much I like them now that I can see in them again HAHA. Amazing how fast an overcrowded tank needs to be dealt with. You'd think I'd learn after 40+ years, but noooo, gotta have those fish! My old dog is asleep on the couch (in ninja mode so I won't see him) and is dreaming away, barking and running. I wonder if he'll fall off the couch if he keeps it up, that would be hilarious! Well, he is really old so guess I should feel sorrier but he's always been one big goober of a dog. Perfect boys dog his whole life indeed. Used to pull them on their skateboards and pretend he was a real boy right along with them for whatever adventure they could dream up. Well, the day is getting on and I've got several things to finish before I can enjoy it. Hope your day goes tolerably well!

quick back'atcha`
well, I'm not leaving the house but am anxious to get back to projects after doing some chores. Looks like we may get those storms which will make for a perfect day for me. Guess I had better get my outdoor ones done first (why I ever thought I needed 2 big dogs is sometimes beyond me!) Congrats to that grad, what a wonderful day indeed!

Papa is a trooper
the cat story only enforces my respect for him! My cat was found under a school with 2 other siblings, no one knows what happened to the mama kitty. I got her in Feb, and we lived at Lake Tahoe at the time so there was snow and cold and the usual Feb weather. My friends' son brought her to me as I had recently lost a kitty and wanted another but hadn't found the right one until the little black ball of fire came to my house. The Goose (aka El Gato Diablo) is hilarious and we all love her. Even bf who told me he did not like cats any way shape or form. So now she has him trained and he decided this cat would be his exception to the rule haha. I think it started when she first helped him do a tune up. I got my delivery date yesterday, arrives the 10th, which is a lot faster than the original quote and WooHoo am I excited! Except this means I'll be spending Mom Day working in the garage. Not a bad way to spend the hallmark holiday actually, didn't have any other plans anyway. A wish for a good day to you and yours!

Hi
Thanks so much. How is all the fish and family doing? I find a few platy fry in the tank now and then, no big batches like the last time. Have to work on the pond for the goldfish but there is still ice in there. Take care and have a nice day, bye

busy life
got so busy yesterday didn't have time to blog! Jeesh! So, catching up quick today. Nice you have a retreat home, what a wonderful thing to look forward to even if things are chaotic at times. All fish are doing great, did massive water changes Monday. Been going over with my dad my 'kiln' needs and we'll be ordering this coming Mon. The company I'm doing this through is fantastic. I called them and told then when I'd be ordering and if I could get the sale prices that will end on the 30th, the lady was more than happy to accommodate that request and gave me her info so I can call her direct. Great customer service is such a wonderful commodity! Well, that and the total of my order is quite large so she said she's more than happy to see to it my dad gets his moneys worth. I'm hoping she'll get a commission or something, not sure how it works there since most orders I've done are internet only. At least send her a super thankyou card so she can show her boss how great she is. Anyway, onto other things. My crushes are many, Michael Franti is a big music one, and uh, Crispin Glover and Ralph Fiennes are my biggie movie guys. Well, gotta get my clear coating going on, my last big piece is almost done, WooHoo!

pain in the ?
hehe, yup, I'm a fan of the fun and pun. Nothing like laughing at yourself to keep spirits up and attitudes in the right altitude hahaha. Rain! Enjoying a very rainy weekend so far! And we get to have a quiet one with no company which is what we wanted to begin with. Have many projects going on and don't feel like having to pack them away for a day just to haul them all out again. I'll never let PaPa know he's got some replacement fish! But fry! That's fantastic! Sounds like you're in for a nice weekend. And yes, you need to watch Hatari again, too funny that one. And so incredibly sexist too! Gotta love those old 50's attitudes! After I get my 'puter rebuilt, I'll get my site up again and then you can see some of my projects. I'm currently getting up a wish list then narrowing it down to reality for a kiln set up from my dad, he told me figure out what I really need and then we'll get it ordered. Oh MY! I'm like a kid in a candy store! I can see where having unlimited money would come in handy. Oh, and time! Here's to a safe and worthwhile trip and hope the food is wonderful too!

Happy Spring!
It rained most of the night, and now is a nicer day out, some bright blue sky, fluffy white clouds, cool breeze and my much required moisture! Spaz, that's been me since I was a kid, never sleep, always moving, and even my pets are hyper. My bf is a very mellow guy, he's a good balance for me, my rock in the whitewater river of my life. My neck, C1 and C2 vertabrae are twisted, likely from years of working low paying office jobs and not having a headset, phone on shoulder while working is a very bad thing it turns out. And the base of my neck has a torn muscle bulge thingy. Some days hurt more than others and I do have to remind myself I'm no longer young and can lift heavy things. My sons and bf are all good about doing things for me when I remember to ask. Having been independent and enjoy doing things myself, this is harder than I thought. So, how is PaPa and his fish? Your mom? Any Easter plans? We might have a rather large family gathering and my sister is going to cook, so even if it's small I'm off the cook list for a change. And we'll most likely watch Hatari! as that is mine and my sis' favorite movie together. We can quote the whole thing from start to finish and drive everyone nuts hehe. Well, I need to get my chores caught up so I can enjoy my new glass tools. Oh, I am learning oxy/acetylene and a size 0 tip, and can make a puddle and a weld joint like I was born for it. Very thin and deceivingly strong. Never touched a torch or knew anything about welding, just always wanted to do it and I am loving it!

summer fun
I think it's great you're able to enjoy visits and help both parental units from each side. There are sure to be some good laughs along with the added work at least. I'm really pleased to hear your case is moving along so well, what a fantastic turn to have the lawyer on your side. Not much to tell, had to take my mom to a not so fun doc appt yesterday, her upper and lower GI tests had to be done. she's happy they've really improved over the years though and came through with flying colors and no trauma. I told her I was glad cuz then I didn't have to waste my ziploc baggies on her for the ride home hehe. She's happy to not have to do it again for another 5 years though. Can't say as I blame her there! Not much else to tell, need to catch up on my chores. Groundhog Day, Bill Murray is too funny!

Hi
Can't help but to stop by and say something. You made a very noble, responsible, and more than all a tough/complicated descision. I know not knowing you does not hold much weight when I say I feel for you, but we all care! Wish only the best in these hard times as some of us might be learning these very important moral lessons. Keep spirits high and please keep us posted.

Compassion Rick.
Howdy Rick,
I just passed by Tamara's blog ( Spaz ). I'm So so sorry to hear about your Dad. As hard as it is. I think you're right. Your Mom's health comes forst now. In time I think she'll forgive you? You have to remember, your parents have probably been together for Decades? Your Mom is on the defensive because the Man she's spent most of her life with, is losing his. She is fighting to defend that life against all comers, Even Death itself. Right now...NO ONE can tell her that she shouldn't fight because your Dad can't anymore. It's the Human Spirit to survive, the love of all the years they've had. In a way, it's giving her strength to Fight Fight Fight for him. She probably realizes that she's losing her Husband, Your Father, Your kids Grandfather but her Heart tells her to defend him, protect him with every fiber of her being. You're right too, it's time to take care of her needs now.She'll realize that too one day I think? Losing a mate can be unbearable but Humankind has that survival instinct built in. I can tell that you Love your Mom and Dad just by what you've said. Patience, Compassion and of course Empathy. My Heart goes out to your entire Family.
Take care Rick,

Chris

Thank you for the Congrats :)
It was such a pleasant way to wake up this morning LOL. Are you still raising platy fry? Do you trade them in at LFS? My Angelfish pair are spawning again (they are young - will be a year old in April) and the most successful so far for parent raised is 9 days. This spawn is large with hardly any white eggs (I see 5?) and the parents haven't fought as they have sometimes with the female chasing the male away. Crossing my fingers :)

Take Care,

Kathy
