And Elliott makes sure she doesn't go anywhere else! He growls and hisses at her whenever she gets near me.
It sure doesn't seem to phase her one bit! She rolls around on the floor teasing Elliott. Punkin just sits on the chair in the background letting them make fools of themselves.
Elliott makes sure he is right next to me or on my keyboard!! It makes me feel kinda good having a man fight over me again!
Such is life on Whidbey today.

When I brought her in I put the carrier on the floor and Elliott & Punkin come up and sniffed. Punkin turned and left, but Elliott made a fool of himself! He cried and screamed like a little girl!
Elliott stayed most of the night sitting on top of the covered cat litter box to be sure she didn't go in there and make a mess! I had to make her a small one just for her. I also had to give her food by herself as Elliott does not want her near the food either! That will change!!

I can't believe how time flies. I was 18 years old when she was born, and at my peak of youth, beauty and wild times. I went to the dances at the Enlisted Men's Club on the base three times a week. I took Donna to the cafeteria where my sister worked and everyone thought she was mine! I was (still am) blonde, and so was Donna. Mary Lou has Auburn hair.
It seems a lifetime ago. I got her a birthday card that says the earth stopped 41 years ago and she got on. That about explains Donna. She is unique in every way! I am very proud of her and hope she knows it. I love her like she is my own daughter. She gets raw wool and makes her own yarn then knits things. I crochet small things with store bought yarn. She is a very self sufficient gal and I have no worries about her survival! None whatsoever!
Happy Birthday Donna!!
I saw a huge lightning strike today about 2pm over the mountains. It was bright orange and poerful! I never heard the thunder so I figured it was a long ways away. About 20 minutes later I noticed a heavy plume of white smoke in the mountains where the strike hit. I called 911 and they transfered me to the Jeffereson County office and I told them what I saw and they said about 4 other people saw the same thing and it is a forest fire in the Olympic National Forest caused by the lightning strike I saw.
Stay safe everyone!

This is Sherry blowing out her candles on the melted cake. My sister bought the cake and put it in the car and stopped at another store and came home. Just in that short time the heat of the day melted the cake!! HAHAHAHA
My sister took this picture of my brother. They left right after. He was tired. They went to the Island County Fair and he was worn out. He is starting to hurt in different places now and that worries me.
We take it one day at a time here. Pray for mercy and comfort for him please. Thanks.
