Slow Morning Wake-up, Because

Relatively quiet early yesterday evening. Went over to S & K's for dinner, as Ruthie remained in Deltona for business. Left not right away but shortly after dinner when the rain started, as I'd left windows open at the house. Mama Munch was to be found in her Safe Place when I got back to the Ranch, where the Sky Grumbler's couldn't get at her.

Three of the Four Kittens of the Apocalypse spent the night inside because of the weather; their older brother RasMewSon and their sib, Three of Four both wanted out despite the weather. No worries, they are pretty good at finding their shelter as needed.

'Round oh-four-dark-hundred, Mama Munch woke me up, and the Border Collie Bros were barking away. I let her out to go supervise, listened for a while but couldn't see a durn thing through the very dark and rain. When I headed back to bed, One, Two, and Four KoftheA were waiting for me in the bed... somewhat unusual.

Coffee and some web surfing this AM when I woke up again around eight. But RasMewSon and Three didn't show up for breakfast. 'Round ten or so I went out to call them, no response. And some odd tracks just outside the side door, obviously made during the night but between some of the showers here (there were raindrop marks inside them, but they weren't wiped out probaby because they're under the oak outside the side door). We don't have any ducks anymore, I'm wondering about the webbing mark I see.

Well, time to get moving and feed the critters.

OK, Not Qute Yet Out to Feed

So, whatcha think, folks as may have opinions?

Your Birthdate: September 13

Being born on the 13th day of the month should help make you a better manager and organizer, but it may also give you a tendency to dominate people a bit.

You may be more responsible and self-disciplined than you realize.

Sincere and honest, you are a serious, hard working individual.

Your feeling are likely to seem somewhat repressed at times.

You are apt to be much more practical, rational, and conscious of details.

Your intolerance and insistence on complete accuracy can be irritating to some.

Curiouser and Curiouser...

said Alice.

Well, Three of Four bolted into the house when I opened the door to go feed the ranch critters. He looked rather... disheveled. Quite unusual for our Three, the Beau Brummel of felinedom. He's the only feline I've met who knew exactly what a mirror was the very first time he saw one. In fact, he strutted back and forth singing "I'm too sexy for my tail..." that whole time.

Today, though, quite unusually discheveled and initially not terribly eager to go back outside later, though he did venture forth with Mama Munch. But I get a bit ahead of myself.

Those tracks I mentioned? All over under the oak at the side door and throughout the chicken condo yard. And, there's a hen missing... And, those same tracks are by not one but both water troughs in the goat paddock and the cow paddock. Houdini spent rather a long time sniffing, and marking, around the water trough in the goat paddock.

Something Is Definitely Up.
