We interrupt this vacation blog (that is taking a month to produce) bring you these important messages..

Ok, it's been a few weeks since my return from Europe and all one of you have been waiting patiently for my stories and pictures. I JUST got the pictures off of Rebekahs computer last week and I have been very busy going through them, sorting them and I'm just now starting to edit them. Hopefully next week I will start my vacation stories...

But for are a few things I've seen and done since I came back from London...(in no particular order..)

A while back I mentioned "Stella" on Facebook and my reader asked me who she was....I have been remiss in introducing my newest feline room mate, so lo and behold...this is Stella.
She was born to Ashleigh on March 30, 2009. I think her daddy is a Maine Coon or at least part Maine Coon because she is huge. In this picture she is only about 5 months old and she is already much bigger than Nort and Matilda. She is actually bigger than Ashleigh. Below is a picture of her playing with her Uncle Lorenzo. He took very good care of her when she was a tiny baby and they still have a very strong bond. I have seen Stella bite his ears and yank on his tail and he just sits there and takes it.

Yes, I know Ashleigh is far too prolific and I do have plans to get her spayed. I'm embarassed to say that on my first day of vacation...I hadn't even left LAX when my pet sitter called to tell me that Ashleigh had just given birth to 5 more kittens. The instant she is done nursing this litter she is going in to get fixed. I have done everything short of nailing her tail to the floor in order to keep her in the house. (11 cats in a single wide mobile home is just insane.)

In other news...At the Huntington Beach street fair that is held every Tuesday night I saw this:


He was wearing shoes on all 4 paws and he was just prancing around looking fabulous. He was far too busy to pose for a picture so I had to take this on the run with my cell phone.

And lastly, Rebekah and I take pictures of cute guys...on the sly... and then send them to each other. This was the last one I took:

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm going to win a Pulitzer for that one....

Anyway...stay tuned...Europe pics and stories are right around the corner.
