Thank you!

Teak, " THANK YOU for all your birthday wishes yesterday! I turned 5 and ICE turned 4 years old."
ICE, " I got a new poodle collar and matching leash and Teak got a share toy as all of us do on our Birthdays. We got a new flingString....Mom will try to get photos." 

Holly, "Finally this week I get to see the doctor that will do the procedure. It will be at a different hospital than my main doctor is associated with so my insurance has to OK it."

This has been one crappy year, actually it started last fall with the leaking of our oil tank and us finding out that the contract we had paid on our tank was discontinued a month after we paid over 300.00!  Our oil company pocketed our money.  We sued and got our contract money back but they took part of our prepaid oil money to pay for them helping(very little) to dry the oil up and take the oil out of the tank. We ended up buying 2 new tanks from a tank company we trusted where we used to live and they also installed them for almost the same price as the oil company was going to charge us to replace the same exact tank that only lasted us ten years!  Our new tanks have double bottoms, special coating and are numbered for a 25 year warranty.

They got away with not replacing the tank because of wording in the oil contract. after that we have reread our other contracts and do not like what we found in our home insurance company. It says that any property that they replace becomes their property! Scary! CHECK YOUR CONTRACTS and READ them word for word......believe what you are reading!!!!!!

This year started with my kitchen TV quitting, then the ice maker, the dishwasher door spring broke, then the printer...BTW, were you aware that your printer has a built in ink reservoir to catch the ink cleaned off the heads and when it is full your printer is finished, kaput! It's not bad enough how much ink we have to buy but now we must replace our printer in a little over a year(depending on how often you use it) oh, that's comforting...should we buy it for it's looks!!!! We bought a new ...older model Ebson with a trap door in the back, my son took out one end of the tube inside and placed it in a small plastic bottle so the ink gets collected in the bottle now. We also bought a continuous ink set-up so now we can print....print......drip....drip....print.....print...print!!!!!!

Now that we are in July, we hope the second half of the year will be better............Fingers & pawz crossed

Oh, we missed your birthdays, we're sorry! We hope you both had a terrific celebration, though.

Purrs to your human for her procedure, and for the latter half of 2013 to be fantastic.

We missed your birthdays too. Happy Belated Birthday. We hope the second half of your year is better. And we thought having to replace our heat/ac unit was bad...
