Rescue group – Gracie (the new catkid) came from a rescue group I hadn’t dealt with before. It’s all volunteer (as many are) and full of cat lovers (just like me). After three weeks I’ve had two follow-up calls to see if things were working out. That’s great. It takes time but it’s best to work with an adoption at the beginning so you can intercede if things are go wrong. Otherwise the animal comes back, older and rejected. Nope, Gracie is not going anywhere (except the vet next year for annual shots). She’s home for good.
Speaking of the rescue – The call was in my voicemail. When I called back, the woman was on the phone with her mother. She said that she’d be right back because “my Mom knows the drill.” That doesn’t necessarily mean that cats come first but that she could call her mother later and it may be harder to catch up with me. I remember telling my Mom that “I had to go” when something was going on. Seemed natural at the time. Now I hope I didn’t make my Mom feel second best.
Really? – I know I’ve written about this before but I can’t help myself. This week two friends posted extremely touched up photos on Facebook. It didn’t look like them at all. There must be a new app out there and I’m not liking it. Lessening wrinkles is one thing. Making the face a flat plain is another. Don’t expect me to tell you how beautiful you are unless you post the real thing.
It happens – Yesterday I got the wrong drink at Starbucks. It was a quad (that means extra shots) latte. Not decaf either. I would have been bouncing off walls. Who drinks that stuff? It’s straight caffeine.
I ain’t listening! – Sometimes there is an interesting recipe posted on Facebook. (It’s what I like about FB.) There is one website that does slow cooker recipes. Every time I click on the link for the full recipe, they have an ad. That’s not the worst part. The ad is 30 seconds long (that’s long!), can’t be skipped and I can’t alter the volume which is ear-piercing. Consequently I shut down the site. I miss the recipe and don’t see the ad. What marketing brain thought of that idea and who does it work on?
So how was your week?
