And the hits just keep on coming....

As if cabins on fire and cats with face cancer weren't enough, the smiting of the ranch continues.

First, some damn feral kids in the neighborhood pitched a rock through the back window of Steve & Johanna's VW bug. Then a dead tree from the park behind our house snapped in half and  crashed into the back yard. At least we can use the half a tree to fire up the sauna - or roast those punk-ass kids at the stake if we ever catch 'em.

And now for something completely different:

WE GOT MOOSE POOP!

A recent unscientific survey of Rancho Spenardo turned up 29 individual piles of moose poop in the yard. As the snow continues to melt, new samples will surely be found. While this is the first (and probably last) year that records will be kept about the ranch's spring moose poop count, everyone (in the room) agrees that this is some kind of record.

Aw, hell. Just because Marley seems to be doing better doesn't mean she is doing better. Her biopsy came back and, unfortunately, it's cancer. The vet gives her anywhere from 2 to 8 months. Sadly, I'll be making the move to Alabama solo.

 

It's been a tough week for another of Rancho Spenardo's feline residents. Sara, one of Steve & Johanna's cats, needs to have her tail amputated.

Ado, on the other hand, is as fat & happy as he ever was.

THE RANCH

THE RANCH

THE RANCH IS ON FIRE!

 

April 7, 2006

Steve came home yesterday afternoon to find his cabin full of thick smoke. A small fire had been smoldering between the desk and wall. Had he not come home when he did, it would've certainly been disastrous.

The temperature in the cabin was hot enough that CD cases across the room started to melt. We're all just relieved that no one was hurt.

 

Speaking of hurting...

Poor Marley is recovering from surgery she had yesterday to treat a nasty infection that had ravaged her jaw down to the bone. She's doing much better now. 

Unfortunately, my wallet is now much lighter than I'd anticipated. Gotta get that internet yard sale going so I can replenish my reserves. I've been spending a lot of time cataloging my record collection, so some of those should be online in the next week or so.

And yes, even though it's April, it's still snowing.
