Forecast and Faery Finder
By Janice Scott-Reeder and the Bitwit
Due to Cancer surgery on my forehead, I will off indefinitely until I can heal completely, have at least one more operation to remove more cancer, heal…move to Hawaii and say the H with it! Having just gotten the bill for my co-payments, the only one going anywhere is the hospital and doctors. I don’t have bus fare left.
Message from the Microwits: Our stupid aunt, Poley, thought Skin Mommy was drowning. We laughed so hard we almost split a gut. She shouldn’t do that after big dinner. Our tummies hurt! Napoleon caught us a beetle but it wouldn’t stay on the ground and he refused to hit it harder, until it landed on Boogaboo. OUCH! Mommy let us lick the scrambled egg pan! Yummy!

COMMENTARIES BY JANICE SCOTT-REEDER
Stolen pets are when a human is doing something else and a cat takes it as an opportunity to get a rub. Last night I was washing my hands. I am a little fanatical about it because I worked in medicine. So, I tend to put a bit of elbow grease into it. And the elbow is exactly where old Bat the Cat got a good rub. Then he crawled under my forearm for a stroke. All of this with water running and soap lathering so there was nothing I could do. The Microwits like to catch you seated and crawl in your lap. They have cute down pat. About the only thing you can do privately around here is bathe. So far, no one likes water.
Speaking of water, you really should introduce your feral cats to water very slowly. I am peacefully sitting on my shower chair having a relaxing shower when I hear a cat screaming in utter panic. I looked down and here is poor Poley with her head stuck in the shower, no color showing in her eyes -complete black, in a total panic, screaming, “Mommy, get out of there before you drown! Help! Drag her out!” I had to turn off the shower and let her see everything was alright to shut her up. I tell you, every night around here is an adventure in Cat Land.
All night I had Napoleon and Josephina blocking my way out of the bed, unconscious. Moving Napoleon when he is this deep sleep state is like trying to move a twenty pound sack of jello. With Josephina it is a forty pound sack of wet concrete! This morning I found her with her head laying over the edge of the bed. All the blood had be rushing to her head, but she was totally out. Now that breakfast has been fixed, I have five huge cats in here with me, all enjoying the air conditioning and the soft surfaces. Considering I bottle fed some of these cats and even held the whole litter in my hands at once, it is amazing to look at the huge cats they have grown into. Purrbie would give a bobcat a run for its size. Napoleon is all muscle and really heavy. And as for Josephina, she is a large round wrecking ball.
According to the book buzz…Magician is supposed to be way better than Harry Potter! Look for it.
Florida Power and Light is seeking a 31% rate hike next year. They don’t the benefits package, salaries and bonuses their executives make is relevant information and refuse to release them to the public service commission. I think it is really relevant information and their refusal tells me we are getting screwed, big time.
