Our upper porch had 2 inches of ice on it when it started to rain last Saturday. Three hard working souls(Prince, Puppy and I) and five hour later we had it clear. It had formed an ice dam and water was running down the basement walls, therefore it had to go no matter what. I can honestly say it has been a REALLY LONG TIME IF EVER that I was that cold and wet. Those who have had it worse well I feel your pain but this southern gal does not wish to be where there is so much cold and snow. This episode was enough to cure me for wishing for snow. Alas, it was not the snow but the ice which is so very horrible. Our neighbors to the east in our state, have trees etc down and no power yet and some might not get it for 3 weeks. It is beyond my wisdom as to why Mother Nature has been so cruel to us southerners.
The Kitty Justice is that Tennessee weather is like a woman's mood, wait and it will change. As for this Kat it can change any time now.

At first Maggie refused to squat on that sheet of ice but after much sniffing she resigned herself to finding no uncovered earth to do her daily business. Now she seems use to it and runs out does her thing and heads back to the house. You know it is cold when a Lab rather be inside than outside.
As for me, I have run up and down steps to keep the fire burning so it will be warmer in the house. After chores are done, I cover up with a warm red blanket downstairs by the fire and read .
The Kitty Justice is I know how to act like a house cat when it is COLD and ICE covers the earth.

In the meantime, I put a rooted piece of sage that I had had in the kitchen window in the pot that the pencil plant had occupied. Sage on the hill is very hardy, therefore if it starts to wilt, I will know the pot is diseased.
The Kitty Justice is the pot will be thrown away if the hardy sage does not survive.

FIRST YOU HAVE ONLY ONE CHOICE. Think carefully before you speak or type, etc. Your sense of smell will be gone forever, however, the twist is you can chose one smell . Now what would you like to smell forever? I asked Prince and he quickly replied the smell of diesel fuel burning. WHAT????
Now you think about it. Would you want to smell the sent of your loved one forever or perhaps you would prefer something baking.
THE KITTY JUSTICE IS I MAY TELL YOU IF YOU TELL ME YOURS.

Patience is a virtue and it also give the retail guys time to come off their price.
The beauty now resides at the end of one of the cherry benches and lights the end of the living room and part of the dining room.
The Kitty Justice is it was a "Deal".

Prince came home with the FLU last Monday. Yes, he did get the flu shot. Finally with my nagging, he got the Doctor to prescribe him some Tami flu. Might be spelled wrong. Anyway, by Friday night he no longer had a fever and was feeling better but weak and no appetite. He said when he ate, he felt like his stomach had a brick in it. Between taking care of him and trying to keep places germ free and taking care of Mimi it was a blur of a week. Mimi's leg which she injured back on 6-1-14 is beginning to look like a leg instead of a misplaced alligator. I work on her leg twice a day and with my massaging the area there is better blood flow so it is looking good and soon will be better.
After the fever broke, I stripped the bed clothes and washed everything in HOT water. I do not wish anyone else in the family to get sick especially Mimi. She is not physically strong so that would be a very very bad thing to happen to her.
I cannot believe we have worked our self into the second month of the year. Each year, I am can hear my Mother say "The years get faster as you age." The year may get faster but I am slowing down. Back when Mother was saying such things to me, I never thought I would get to be this age. Surprise, surprise. Those young people out there will get a wake up call someday when they reach a ripe old age.
Now everyone is talking about the Super Bowl. There will be no party on the hill but I do plan to enjoy the game. I only want it to be close and not a run away. If it is a run away, I will just enjoy the commercials. I hate the fact that some are now being aired before the game. Why pay all that money if your gonna show them in advance. Sounds dumb to me but I am not in advertisement. I do have a favorite team. Reason, back when Tom Brady was a Senior in college at Michigan, our family were fortunate to see him play against Michigan State. It was a wonderful trip to see friends and a bonus to be there at the game and before hand. The drum core program before the game was so exciting. Besides we have a Tennessee boy, Dante Hightower, which my son's high school football team played against playing for New England, so yes I will be routing for them.
The Kitty Justice is I hope yawl enjoy the Super Bowl 49 and stay well.
