Back In Business

The power came back on late yesterday. The first thing I had to do was deal with the refrigerator and freezer. We lost about half of what was in the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen. When I went to check on the freezer in the basement, there was a little red puddle leaking out of the bottom panel. If this had been an episode of CSI, that eternally pissed looking red-head would have dipped a swab into the puddle, and held it up, watching it turn purple, and glaring at me. Then one of her flunkies would open the freezer door, to reveal my husband, with icicles hanging off his eyebrows, despite the fact that I had been telling the neighbors that he had run away to some South Sea Island with a blonde co-ed. Luckily for all of us, it was just a blackberry pie on the top shelf that had tipped, thawed, and poured its contents over everything below. What a mess. We are having our revenge, though. There is pie for dessert tonight!

Time to get back to the real business of this blog. Weasley. I wanted to get his  help drawing the name of the winner of the Moose-tacular Giveaway. He was sleeping in the sun. My first mistake was waking him up.

I tried adding some papaya to the bowl, hoping to get him to show a little more interest.

He barely moved the paper while extracting the treats. How can bunny lips be this dexterous? He went back to sleep after munching, so I had to do the job myself.

I closed my eyes, stirred the papers, and picked one out.

Congratulations to our friends over at Fab Furs! Fargo is going to be a very happy Kitty! Please e-mail me with mailing information, so I can get the package out to you. And a big Thank you to everyone who participated. This has been a lot of fun. I think we'll have to do it again. Maybe if I rub banana on the slips of paper, I can get Weasley to pick the name next time!

Thank you so much Karen M and Weasley! Now I'll just have to get my human to get busy and make me felt balls and probably a catnip toy or two with the Moose-tacular Giveaway loot! Then when she's done making me things, she can make herself something.(Glad you got some papaya out of the deal, don't fall for the banana-scented paper next time, hold out for the real banana chip.)

Yay for having power back, too! Somehow I have the idea that the refrigerator and freezers must have been crammed with delectable edibles, such a pity to lose so much. Glad that there was pie for dessert, though.

Congrats to Fab Furs Fargo for winning the giveaway!

That Weasley is a crafty rascal--he got you to give him papaya without any real effort on his part. (Rabbit lips are amazing things; Mick can pick out every single bit of oats that I put in his pellet dish without touching the pellets.)

Sorry to hear about the loss of your freezer and fridge contents--I've already told hubby that we need a generator for our fridge and sump-pump in case we lose power again. We were lucky not to lose food this time; I don't want to press my luck.

Sorry to hear about your pie. It sounds like it would have been amazing.

I think it's the bunny tongue that it dexterous, not the lips. But what do I know.

Congrats to TFF and Fargo!
