C’Ville Tote December 2017

Recommended Posts

It kind of seems fitting that the last bag (for now) was delivered in such a suspenseful manner for both me and all of you! I don't think you could have written a better suspense plot for a dime store paperback (remember dime stores?) 

We had planned to be kitten-free this Christmas as our last foster was adopted last week, but tonight I got a call from the shelter director saying that one of her fosters had pan-leuk and she needed two healthy ones out of her house stat! So now we have two "littles" in the master bathroom. We have a very strict 2 week quarantine in this house. No contact with our cats until the two weeks is up. 

Since we haven't actually owned a tree in about a decade, it was no big deal. The bad thing is that I have a few nostalgic ornaments. I probably need to think of a way to display them out of paw's reach.

I told Tampa Guy that is was a funny ending.  Every time one left the house I worried till it got delivered.  There was one that was not passed on to the new address.  There was one (for Canada) that rattled around in Miami for a couple of days, till it moved on out of the country.

I have to laugh at the stories about the cats.  One person who got a tote said she had to hide it from her cat, as it would throw everything out of the tote and curl up inside to take a nap.  Another tote was almost stolen by ducks at a pond.

I enjoyed the stories of the totes and I was glad I could make all your days when you got them.

The funny thing, was that Tampa Guy was ready to put out a BOLO on the tote.:rofl  You think he watches Live PD and Cops to much?

Enjoy your day.

Here we call them ATL (attempt to locate). It replaced the old expression of APB.

I work at a city police department. I watch Live PD and I'm glad to know that we don't have ALL of the crazy people here even though there are days that it sure feels like it!

Here I am! Oh goodness what a surprise!!  First, I must tell you that I jammed my Dad's mailbox key into our box and it got stuck there. We finally got into the box three days later. Because the mailman could still open the box even when we couldn't, we had 4 days of mail when we finally got it out. I dumped it on the counter and "clank" out came the key. It was too late to go back to the box in the dark (it's at the end of our street) so I went the next morning, found two boxes in the locker and tossed them both in the back seat of my car. Assuming they both belonged to my husband (because I did not order anything) I dumped them on the kitchen counter after a late night doing animal rescue stuff. So now we are at something like day FIVE after the box was delivered that I opened it.  So I *finally* realized what a bag lady was and could not believe I was chosen! So I snap a picture and go to log on to the Ville. The freekin' Internet was down! My husband would call the company during the day (he's retired) and they would get it running and by the time I came home for work, it would be down again. Today I decided that if the cable still wasn't working I was going to send the picture from my phone to my work email, damn be the no-personal-use-of-Internet rules at work, I was going to sneak in a post tomorrow. 

So without further ado...THANK YOU TAMPA DOLL for the wonderful gift. I have to decide what to do with the pickle. It has been about 12 years since we've had a Christmas tree because we always seem to have foster kittens at Christmas and kittens+Christmas trees=nightmare. And if that tree potholder is a pattern you can share, I would really appreciate it.  And I don't know if you did some clever spying to decide on the colors of green and gold but they are my Packers colors!!
