I decided to delete my tumblr account, so it’s gone. I’d been thinking of it for a while now and just hadn’t gotten around to it. I really don’t get anything from it anymore and those I used to like to see on there are gone themselves, so…it’s history. I had like 280 follows on there but most of them were inactive themselves. I am actually surprised it hasn’t shut down.
Going to sister’s later for a BBQ. Well, we intend to spend the day inside instead of out as we normally would. It’s going to be another 100 degree day. Think we are supposed to have 8 days in a row, which is not normal for us. By next weekend it’s back in the 80s, thankfully.
I’ve gotten Monday’s and Wednesday’s flashes up but still need to do Friday’s. Have no fear, I will get it done.
After posting chapter two of A Heart Needs a Second Chance (cheating Jim story) I had several requests to post again soon to it so for now I intend to keep going with that story. Expect chapter 3 up later this week.
Went to a Fleetwood Mac tribute concert last night. It was fun.
Don’t know if I mentioned this but Luna has jump anxiety. She seriously does. Anyway, I am sure I have told the story of having bought for the brat this luxurious soft cat bed some years back. She refused to go anywhere near it and kept her flat not luxurious cat bed. The nice one sits in the garage.
But recently I got her this scratching post thing that has a top part for the cat to make themselves comfortable (see picture with Luna in it)
She loves it. But cannot or will not jump into it because of that jump anxiety. So she has figured out how to ask us to pick her up and put her in it. Yes, she is incredibly spoiled. But I am thrilled she actually likes it!

Awwww! What a cute kitty photo! She looks so comfy. Now you need to create steps or a ramp for her highness to get into her throne unassisted!
I have a Tumblr account but rarely go on it. Usually go on Tumblr following a link.
Enjoy the visit today and the rest of your weekend.
I worked Friday night and I was so exhausted when I got out Saturday morning, that I did nothing all day yesterday. We were supposed to go to the beach today. But would have to leave kinda early because I have work tonight. But it was so exhausted that I couldn’t wake up. Trying to think of something local that we can do. Sigh!!!
Looking forward to reading more of your flashes and updates.

Get some rest!

Luna is baby. She deserves all of that. Of course I would have rigged up something that she could climb so she didn’t have to jump. Heh. She’s too precious for words. I love her.
I’m looking forward to more second chance too. I’m super intrigued on how you’re gonna work it all out.
Enjoy the inside BBQ! Definitely stay out of that heat. That’s nuts. But hopefully it doesn’t last any longer than it’s supposed to and you can go back to regularly scheduled weather.

Yeah M might lower the legs of the contraption so it might be easier for her to reach

OMG OMG OMG!!! You’re going to give us chapter 3 early. TY TY TY!!!! I am SO HAPPY. Cause it’s at a heart-wrenching point right now. (Though I suspect pretty much EVERY chapter for a long time will also be there).
I know your friends will miss your tumblr. You have so many many fans. They’re out there even if not vocal.
You know I for one absolutely get it though. And you give us this amazing blog to communicate with you on. I’d be much harder if we didn’t have this.
Cat. Mine had 2 flat levels AND one of those to lie in.
He never EVER paid it any attention at all. I even put a few cat treats in it to lure him. He pawed them out without ever touching it. My cat, however, had a million anxieties, none of which were jumping. He jumped from my highest point all the way down, as often as possible, it seemed to me.
Thus being wakened with both calves bleeding 2 years ago. After jumping down onto my legs,, he SLID off my legs, down the side of the bed. I told my family, when they send me to be cremated and the person there asks how I got these huge scars there – well, make up some really great story. Because that one was NOT. Painful as heck, shocking as heck, not great.
You have tomorrow off, right?
Yes, 100’s demand inside.
And I’ll never forget my PMD story – what, 3 years ago? – where Pinto decided to marry at noon on Robert/Gwynne’s 50th wedding anniversary, September 5, in their backyard. And I had written it as though it would be a perfect temp day, but asked you to let me know how it really turned out. And you did – it was upper 90s and miserable. So the guys in tuxes and their guests would all be miserable too!
So I rewrote the part about it being perfect temps. I can’t seem to do a totally AU…uh, AU. I’m ridiculous.
Since I left tumblr, now I have no one to beg to post special things for me! What SHALL I do? Seriously, I don’t miss it AT ALL. And I wasted so many hours a day on it. But when SNW took over, it took over tumblr postings too. I wasn’t there for that. I WOULD have been, but not how they did it.
So have a great rest (NPI) of the Labor Day weekend. And I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow to a new installment for cadet month! TY.

(btw – on my cat condo/tree there were LOTS of ways for the cat to climb up there. He NEVER did. It sounded like the end of the world every time he got on it – because he ALWAYS leapt one giant leap for cat-kind to get to the top or to dismount. No other way!)

Yes I do have tomorrow off
Yes your cat was a strange strange cat I know!
More angst to come for Jim and Spock in that story for sure

Aw, Luna. She is so loved and spoiled. Does she jump down out of it or do you help her?
I’ve thought about deleting tumblr too. The most active person I follow is currently a supernatural blog right now. I’m sure once she gets a new obsession it’ll be a new type of blog lol Tumblr has become just one more thing I mindlessly scroll through to pass the time.
Hope you had a great time at the BBQ and can’t wait for the flashes this month!

She jumps out on her own
