Remorseful Illya

An apology to kit10notk9

I didn't mean to ban you. There is a drop down menu and the reply button is nearly on the ban button, if that makes any sense. If I click replay and am not right on the mark, yeah, banned. Sorry. Thankfully, missdiane brought my attention to it. So, if this happens to anyone else, just find a mutual friend and let me know. There is very little that will get you banned from my journal, unless you are a spammer or you decide I don't have the right to my own opinion in my journal. I'm up for some health debate, but don't confuse my sanguine nature for complacency.

Totoro - rain

T'ain't a fit night out for man or beast.

How to describe the weather last night… I’d often heard the phrase, like a runaway locomotive, when describing the wind and thought I’d heard it, but nothing could have prepared me for last night. It was beyond anything imaginable.

Between that and the three inches of rain, we are a mess this morning. Of course, that didn’t stop the outside cats from being ready to eat between rainstorms. I took advantage of it and did a bit of recon at the same time. There was a branch down from the avocado tree and one of the pine trees lost its top. Tons of crap everywhere.

The winds are supposed to subside this morning, but not the rain. It’s on and off now until Friday. That’s good news, but it would have been better if it hadn’t hit both at the same time. The rain returns on Saturday through Wednesday. It looks like the storm gate has finally opened for California.

Please keep good thoughts for the folks in the fire damaged areas – they are looking at massive land/mudslides now.

Just Wondering

When was the last time you spent an entire day in bed, just because you felt like it?


Do you find 'reveal candle (they have something hidden inside) fun or a little freaky?


What are your views on service animals?  Do you think people are taking advantage of the situation?
