In my last post I said I have a menagerie of unwanted animals. I guess i should explain that. My yorkie Binkey came from the local Yorkshire terrier rescue. He was there because his former owner had no time for him. My pug was from a gal at work who'd decided her family had lost interest in him. The Chocolate Lab was my roommate martin's mothers former seeing eye dog- she was fired, not a good seeing eye dog-she liked to go off and chase things like squirrels and other dogs- not good when you are working. My cats- Sammy found me the first Christmas I lived here - my neighbor and I figure the family down the street just left him when they moved- he had been feeding him for about a week when this little fluffy black kitty came up to me and Meowed and rubbed my legs and was purring like a demon... and Tuff, well originally I adopted him for my mom's neighbor lady on the proposal that if and when she passed on I would make sure Tuff had a home. She did and I kept my word. that is the short story of how I got my current animals. regular zoo going on here.
So that is how come I said unwanted animals. I urge anyone out there looking for a pet to adopt an unwanted pet from a shelter or rescue society. You will get lots of love in a great package!

Sooooooo I take him to the vet. Now remember, this is the man who one day saw my pug, who IS fat, and said that is normal for a pug to get big after neutering, then the next visit read me the riot act for letting my dog look like a bratwurst- the kind filled with cheese. Also this is the vet hospital that extracted all off my yorkies teeth and annually sends me a reminder that Binky is due for hie oral exam!
Back to the orange cat- turns out he has an enlarged heart (x-rays) but that is not the problem. At least the vet doesn't think it is. We won't know more until all the lab tests come back. I always knew tuffy had a big heart- he is such a lover boy. And free he ain't- cost me $430. Small price to pay for a perpetual purr machine

I mounted the mackis units in a group of three , reversed the drawers and put knobs on them. I also mounted a shelf below for added stability, yet high enough t clear the small baseboard heater safely. I used wooden drawer knobs from home depot for the feet
The Cabinet is two more IVAR cabinets mounted with 1X4's- provides mom more storage

Easy to make, I just cut four pieces of my left over door moulding out of scrap pieces that are to small to use, nail them together with wire brads, then the pop bottles come in to set inside the vases to hold water!

Another view of both dvd units
I like this pergula to the left, think it would be an easy build and look great in my front yard
This gives a new notion to an outdoor kitchen- a stove outdoors!
What home garden wouldn't have chickens? Hens anyway- Seattle allows you to have 3- Burien doesn't allow them so I have been told
