A miracle that dissolved the very minute I got out the batting to cut more strips. Twice. I finally managed to get 3 cut before I had to put it away again.
I looked at the scratcher tree situation more closely and discovered they had just twisted it loose. I twisted was able to screw it back in and now it's far more stable and not wobbling at all. Whew. They have been trading places in it for a couple of hours - not gently.
I got a great shot of Biggie walking across a ruler so we have a record now of how big it was on August 8, 2019!
The Smalls was not nearly as cooperative.
But this gave me an idea. I got on the scales. And then I got on the scales with each of them individually.
Biggie was 5.44 pounds on July 17. Today he is 7.1 pounds.
The Smalls was 4.5 and now he is 4.8 but I think that is not right. I think my scientific weighing scheme hit a flaw there.
I walked up the street and got lunch and dipped into the little market. The little market is a kind of very upscale 7/11 without the drunks and homeless. They carry toothbrushes, sandwiches, bananas and toilet paper and pretty much everything in between. Their inventory has zero variety and their prices are sky high but, man, when you need an emergency onion, you are very glad they are there.
Also, they have phone pay so when I get a stupid message from Capital One, I always go there to test. I've been keeping them so I can say for sure that every six months, I get an email from Capital One saying that my credit cards have been successfully removed from Google Pay. If I did not initiate, I need to call them immediately. If I call them, they will cancel my cards and send me new ones and I'll have to redo every credit card everywhere and have about a week with no physical cards at all. If I do nothing, I've learned, my life is unchanged. But, I always do check and make sure Google Pay still works with the card.
Well, worth the $5 potato salad (which I know from past experience, is great potato salad).
My LED ceiling pot lights have been blinking and shutting off momentarily for the past two days. It's making me nervous. I do not want to hire an electrician.
I think I'll go and see if I can add one more quilt strip.
