Day 2: Scat, Tater, and Moonpie

Moonpie


Tater


Princess Scat


Tater is wide loose zooming around the apartment. Moonpie follows along but at a slower pace.

Scat is busy snitting and swanning around the apartment because of the urchins I have let into her castle. As we say in the South, she thinks they are tacky.

She has expressed her displeasure by hissing and growling from her bed. She refuses to do anything as gauche as swat at them or chase them.
Scat did come face to face with Tater on one excursion. She left immediately as if she had seen Jabba the Hutt.

It hasn't even been 24 hours. Time will tell. When they begin to plot together against me then the circle will be complete.

PS I am going to get one of those beanbag chairs in my gif when they are older.

BREAKING ON CNN:

The Search for Judge Crater

Another in depth study of a mystery crying out for a resolution using every technology known to man and some from the beyond.
Never mind real news. We are all just extras in a galactic version of "Lost."
I'll bet the aliens who created this are making a mint (or whatever is the corresponding unit in their terms).

Meet my 2 new buddies: Tater and Moonpie:

Tater


Moonpie


Tater and Moonpie


They are 3 month old sisters. They are sweeties who explored every inch of the vet's office including the counters they jumped on from the examination table.
Scat claims they are spawn of Satan. She may take a while to convince.
(I will post better pics)

Animation Shows How Chile's Tsunami Took Over The Entire Pacific Ocean


This time-lapse animation simulates how waves caused by the magnitude 8.2 earthquake in Chile on April 1 spread across the Pacific Ocean over 30 hours. The animation really highlights the reach of a dangerous tsunami. Though this earthquake wasn’t large enough to send destructive waves across the entire ocean, a quake closer to magnitude 9 certainly could.

Here’s the really scary part: The largest earthquake ever recorded was a magnitude 9.5 in 1960 that occurred in nearly the same spot on Chile’s coast as the quake this week. The resulting tsunami killed 61 people in Hawaii and 138 in Japan. The quake and tsunami combined caused 1,655 deaths.

Both of these quakes occurred in what is called a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate is being pushed beneath a continental plate and back into the Earth’s mantle. A continuous subduction zone runs along South America’s Pacific border. Subduction zones are capable of bigger quakes than any other type of plate boundary, and are also responsible for the active volcanoes that ring the Pacific Ocean.

The second largest earthquake ever recorded was a magnitude 9.2 in a subduction zone near Anchorage Alaska in 1964, which resulted in a tsunami that killed 11 people nearly 2,000 miles away in Crescent City, California and 128 people total with waves that reached up to 220 feet high in places. A tsunami caused by another subduction zone event in the Pacific Northwest in 1700 damaged boats, fields and houses in Japan. And of course, the tragic 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami caused by a magnitude 9.1 earthquake in a subduction zone by Sumatra killed more than 200,000 people.

Calling all South Carolinians: Need help in Superintendent of Education election

Sheila Gallagher has entered the Dem race. She has the backing of Representative Gilda Cobb-Hunter.
She has taught for over 30 years and served in various NEA posts in and for SC. That is a godforsaken job in many ways here.
I can promise that she will raise holy hell with the PTB. She will also try to form a consensus for as many issues she can among Dems to move things forward. If that proves futile, she will do her best to stop and/or slow the regressive measures that will certainly be running around.

I can tell you that she keeps an eye on the money. Unlike others who supposedly serve the citizens, she takes a dim view of misspent or misplaced funds. If nothing else, that will be refreshing.

These are my views after knowing her for 40 years. You want her in your foxhole.
Once more into the breach.....

My Scat. (Mousie's sister)



Unbeknownst to her, she's waiting on 2 little kittehs to liven up her life.
Posted by Are_grits_groceries | Thu Apr 3, 2014, 06:28 AM (23 replies)

I am just looking at kitteh pics.

I'm just want to take more time.
I think everything happened so fast with Mousie that I was in shock and probably am to some extent. I did what I thought was best, but I always wondered. I still do but it's slowly getting easier. I wanted to what was right.

I think Mousie would want me to get a tart little kitteh to keep Scat on her toes. Mousie gloried in giving Scat the business.




"And Iiiiiiiii...will always love you..... "
Kittney Houston




Thanks for all the kind thoughts. I still need them.
