Kitten Vs Degu

kittens, degu, cage

We have these 2 kittens that like to wrestle on the degu cages. In case you were wondering what a degu is… they are little furry hamster/gerbil/chinchilla like animals.

I'm not sure if the degus are worried about the kittens. They don't appear to be. The degus are afraid of the dog. Their cage sits about 4 feet off the ground and each time the dog walks by it, they squeek. Porky doesn't seem to care about them.

The two kittens are Earl and Randy. Randy has the long tail, and Earl has a short stubby tail. They were name after the show "My name is Earl".

I think they are all getting along pretty well.

Cloudy Days & Friday’s Always Get Me Down


                                                                    Too cute!  Baby Degus.. Any body want one or two?

I thought I’d start this entry off with something cute.  We have 8 of these little buggers at our house.  Many of you are saying; "Why on God’s green earth would you have 1 of those things in your house, let alone 8?"  I can only say that I am a complete sucker. My mother would only let us have a dog as a kid, so I pretty much say yes to everything but spiders and snakes when my kids want something.

It’s a very dreary day here in Kansas… we are expecting 8"-12" of snow.. (according to Gary Lezak)  My stairs are a bit icy which makes me not want to go to the store. I sent a long list to The Man, in hopes he would go to the store for me.  Something you should know about The Man.. he would go to the store for me no matter how long he’s been at work. He’s nice like that.

I’ve written up ALL of these jeans today..

It doesn’t look like much, but there were about 25 pairs of jeans in there.  Don’t ask me if I think they will sell… Because I have NO IDEA in today’s current econonmy.

I also have this stuff to write up:


This picture doesn’t reveal much of what I have does it?  There’s that Read with me DVD, the pink ribbon which is attached to some shoes.. I’m not going to share the shoes with you. You all appear to be gentle, kind readers. I don’t think you are ready for those shoes…  But see all the plastic bags?  Those are FULL of flatware.

Back in the days when eBay was king, I would buy every piece of silverware or flatware I could get my hands on. Rachel, the shipping manager also doubles as the guru of flatware patterns… she can name a silverware pattern from 100ft.  Ok.. she can’t do that, because she has the vision of a 55 year old man.  But if you put a piece of silverware in her hands she can name the pattern.

Anyone want to see a photo of the shipping manager?
                                                                                    What is wrong with her?

Someone needs to snap a real photo of her. I’ll get her brothers right on it.  Watch out Rachel, you have a bounty on your head.. I’m paying a Nutty Bar to anyone that get’s a photo of the elusive shipping manager.  Photos to come…
