I don’t usually watch intense stuff on television but I’ve started watching that new show - Combat Hospital on ABC on Tues. nights. I think this past Tues. was the 2nd or 3rd  episode. It is kind of like a modern day Mash. It takes place in Kandahar, Afghanistan. It’s pretty interesting and probably not too far from what it’s like over there right now. Hopefully, soon we will be out of Afghanistan.
On to other topics. My cats are driving me crazy. The way I have them in my house, you can’t get them out of their “area” while you clean. You can move some of them but not all of them. So, as I am cleaning one mess, there is someone else making another one right behind me, beside me, and sometimes on me. It is maddening but they can’t help it - I keep telling myself.  It is obviously not the ideal confinement area but it is nice - for them. It’s just hard for me. Maybe someday Extreme Home Makeover will come and grant me my wish to have a cat shelter with all the latest stuff. Somehow - I don’t think my story would measure up to the most needy of their applicants. Oh, well. One can hope.
I am also dealing with some -what I think - is behavioural problems with my cats in my bedroom. I have thought about getting Dr. Gary to give me a pill with colored dye in it so I can tell which cat is being bad. But then, I quickly thought, “Yes, dye. That’s what I need on my couch.” I guess a surveillance camera would work better. I have one cat that I accused of relieving himself on my couch in my bedroom and he looked so guilty that I put him in a cage for the day. Sure enough, someone else came along and “signed” the couch. Now, I don’t know if there are two of them doing it or my “guilty” kitty just admitted to doing it because he is so sweet and just wanted to help me find the culprit. So - for now, I’m thinking about Preemie diapers on all of them. Just kidding. Those would last about 10 seconds - if I could get it on them. But I am putting one of those puppy pads down on my couch. It’s very frustrating. I think maybe I need an exorcist.  If you have any ideas - I’m open to all suggestions.
I hope you have a great 4th of July! Come out to the city’s event of that night - beginning at 7:30 with music and 9:00 p.m. with fireworks. It will be fun and there will be lots of free food for everyone! Come on out and see your neighbors!

Go to your happy place!
See you next week!
