myobrainial infarction

Laughing my way to the funny farm.

 Yesterday I sent my husband on a wild goose chase.

 I forgot what day of the week it was.

Which really shouldn’t be so surprising as I didn’t know what month it was until the other day.

 Yep, Mr. C took off from work so he could take me to my doctor’s appointment.

 Only to discover once I arrived at the doctor’s office,  that the appointment is today.

Mr. Cottage re-arrange his day so we can try again today.

It is bad enough when I make mistakes like that – that screw up my day, but to mess up his too.

As usual he took it like a champ.

We got  a nice lunch out of it.

Afterwords, we went to the grocery store, so that I could pick up a few things including

 the ingredients for the one thing that the family has asked me to make for Thanksgiving.

I forgot to get the ingredients.

And that my friends is what is called a brain fart.

I hope your week is going well.

See you later, Bye!


masked intruder

Early this morning, my eyes opened, Tripod cat sat up in the bed beside me and let out a loud bellow.  EEEWWW skunk!

 My first thought was OMG a skunk has gotten in the house and sprayed.  It brought back horrible memories of years past when that very  incident occurred.

Fortunately, the skunk sprayed outside the house this time.

Present day –  we have been having midnight house raids.  I became suspicious when the cat food levels were decreasing at excessive speed.  Then there were the funny little hand prints that were smudged on the outside of the window.  Someone was looking in the window in the night.

Rocky raccoon has been coming in the cat door at night and eating all the cat food.  I think he might have been making himself at home in the recliner, and watching a little tv too.

  I set up the night camera in the house and caught the daring masked intruder in action.  However. I accidentally deleted the photos with the proof.

Or perhaps Rocky, came in and did it himself.

Now the house has to go on lock down for the night and I have to say that doesn’t go over so well with the cats that come 52 times during the night.  If you have cats you know, they always wish to be on the opposite side of the door that they are currently on.


This is the cat’s tiki porch with cat door in center.


That is Rocky up on the porch discovering the door is locked and he can’t get in.

Night after night he keeps trying.


Handsome fellow, isn’t he.

See you later, Bye!
