Tater and Moonpie sitting quietly together(for once):

In Scat's bed.
(Tater is on the right getting ready to do something, anything)

44 years ago today a famous phrase was coined and

the most compelling reality show ever 'made' was set in motion.
Swigert: 'Okay, Houston, we've had a problem here.'
Houston: 'This is Houston. Say again please.'
Lovell: 'Houston, we've had a problem. We've had a main B bus undervolt.'

The thought of them never coming back was sobering beyond comprehension.

I woke up in the middle of a road rally.

At 3am there was a kerfuffle on the bed. I could feel big feet, little feet, and hear hissing and 'chirps'. By the time I was awake enough to see what was going on, I saw Scat hauling butt down the hall with Tater in hot pursuit. Then I saw Tater reappear with Scat right behind her.

They roared around the bed for a couple of laps and then settled in neutral corners. They fell asleep but now I was wide awke. So was Moonpie. She is feelng a lot better, but I don't think track meets are her thing. She sleeps on my head.

Tater explores everything. She has two 'gears' that she uses. Wide open and stop. At times she roars directly to some predetermined spot. At others, she appears to take off with no destination in mind. She stops whenever the mood strikes. If it looks like an interesting place to be, she looks around briefly. If nothing catches her interest, zoooooooooom!

They know their names for all the good that does. At least I won't forget them.

Jesse Winchester has passed at 69.

A little backstory:
Jesse Winchester is an American musician and songwriter who was born and raised in Louisiana. To avoid the Vietnam War draft he moved to Canada in 1967, which is where and when he began his career as a solo artist.

A favorite of mine:

Fair winds and following seas be with you Jesse.
You can rest now.

A bride and groom in Ireland got quite a surprise at their wedding:

I liked this because it broke up the staid ritual of weddings that can make them seem so joyless. I had some hesitation because I wondered if he took the focus from the marriage.
All in all, I decided that it made the occasion much more memorable and priceless.

"Oh frabjous day!"

Tater and Moonpie have been introduced to the laser pointer.
I don't think Tater's paws touch the carpet chasing it down the hall.

My refrigerator died.

Luckily I have little in it that can spoil.
It is almost old enough to require those huge ice blocks carried with tongs.

The conversation with the landlord may be interesting. I think it's time for a new one. He may not.

Governor Haley hasn't expanded Medicat so that's out.
