Closed For Repair...

I love cats.
I love their grace and their elegance.
I love their independence and their arrogance,
and the way they lie and look at you,
summing you up,
surely to your detriment,
with that unnerving,
appraising stare.
Joyce Stranger, from "Kym"
Cats may not be our servants
or out defenders,
but give us life.
Lying softly in laps,
tuning their heartbeats to our own,
singing away sorrow,
easing the mind,
unravelling the day.
Sharing the empty dark,
Like flowers,
inexhaustible in beauty,
Like flowers,
most necessary,
in ways
we scarcely understand.
~ Pam Brown~
You all know I need to go away for awhile.
However, I've decided to let you speak
because not doing so just killed me.
You know me.
I just can't do that to all of us.
Not after what we've all been through.
Just enjoy yourselves here.
I'll be back eventually.
My greatest joy will be to see
all of you enjoy this space.
I love each and every one of you.
You know that.

Hi Blottie!!!

I don't want to leave a short comment here and disappoint you, so I'm going to ramble on a bit. It rained all day here, from a little mist to a heavy downpour. There's going to be snow in the mountains tonight, maybe up to 4-6 inches in some of the higher peaks in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The snow topped mountains always remind me of living in Colorado... such happier and peaceful times. I also got my new tire today. Not really too exciting, but not having to worry about a blowout on the way home from work is a lot less stressful.

I hope you're feeling some more peace in your life too. I'm sure Ohno and the rest of feline festival at Rose Cottage are helping you along. Take care Blottie... jb

just bob said...

Oh yeah, Leah discovered she's got a huge rack today. Maybe she can pick up some extra cash for all of her knitting supplies by working at Hooters. Good luck with that Leah ;)

Suzanne said...


What about the kitties? While you where here, I was over there. Too damn funny. I'll be back damit. I have to go look at Leah's tits.

This is exactly why I closed shop. You guys kills me!!!

Gig said...

Hi Suze!!
I love the pic of OhNo and the beautiful words...I am also glad you decided to let us have our say...*rings doorbell..."hey let us in"*. Yea, I know we both are laughing!!!

It's been raining here too, melting all that snow, but more snow and wind is on its way tomorrow. Looks like Ed is all cleared for his surgery. I will keep everyone updated.

Ok, I am going to go lurking,uhm I mean visiting and commenting...

love you,
giggie, xoxo

Suzanne said...

Gig, damit, this is my problem! How am I going to shut up when all of you don't? Do me a favor and go to Bob's to read what happened to Cece on the freeway. Oh my God it's insane. And Bob thinks he has a tire problem!!!??? Oh trust me, I'd love to be a fly on the wall when that guy tries to explain it to his wife and kids!

Amen. ;)

kylie said...

well if you arent on vacation and if you are talking with everyone else you should see my wonderful post

Leah said...

It's true, we're a talkative bunch!

Gig said...

Yes, we all do love to talk!! Nothing wrong with that...we will just take over Blottie's Blog while she vacations. We did it over at CSI's...

Ok Suze I have just got home and am going to find out what happened to Cece, then to check out Kylies, then Leah and the list goes on...I will be back later.
gig, xoxo

just bob said...

"we will just take over Blottie's Blog while she vacations."

... lounges in boxer shorts, puts feet up on the coffee table, and wipes Doritos cheese off his fingers on the sofa. Yep... we're taking over!

Karen ^..^ said...

Hi Suzanne... What's going on with Leah's boobs?

You know... Boobs get bigger when you're knocked up...

Anyway, glad to see you here, please don't answer this, you are on VACATION. I'm just having my say... LOL

Love ya, kiddo, and give the kitties a smooch on the lips for me. That's what I do to mine... Is that molestation? I hope not. I don't care if they lick their butts. I love my kitties. They hate being kissed on the lips but it is either that or I squeeze them till they poop...

I'm rambling now. Thanks a lot Bob... See what you taught me to do???

Bye, Suze.

just bob said...

OK, who farted? And Goob... don't try blaming it on the cats.

Suzanne said...

Hi Bob!
Hi Gig!
Hi Kylie!
Hi Leah!
Hi Karen!

Insomnia. What a bitch. My new best friend and I think my biggest problem since discovering menopause!!! What a bitch. Oh...I already said that. Ugh. Here, let me say it again. What a bitch! I've never understood this crap till now. I've always slept so well. What went wrong?

Unlike CSI I'll show up once every so often. Why? Because I'm a lair and a cheat. Oh and because I have insomnia and can't find a room to read or write without disturbing a kitty (it's true, I won't disturb a kitty). I put lavender oil all around in an effort to control fleas economically and I'll be damned, not a single kitty in my office! So I'm here!!! Lavender makes me feel so Zen.

Bob ~ Thanks. I love you baby. Love hearing about your day and your memories. I love stories. Unfortunately not much peace today. I worked my ass off, then nearly slice the top of my finger off. Life in la-la land!!! There's still hope. Right?

Love you so much and thanks,


*Rings doorbell.* "You still up girlie?!" Oh Gig, I love you so much. You make me laugh. Baby, I'm going to be okay, right? I'm so exhausted I don't know the answer!


You applied to Hooter's yet. Bob thinks you're a shoe in. Oh, and if your shoe doesn't get you in, your HUGE boobs should.

Of course I love you. Good luck explaining it all to Heggie.


Kylie! I did see your wonderful post and am about to do what you requested!!! I love you and forever I'll be sorry. You know that. Thanks for your friendship and thanks most for your forgiveness. I love you.


Leah said...

Hi guys!

Can we eat Cheetos in here too? If we promise not to get your couch all orangey. That would make it virtual heaven.

Suzy, I've been waking up at 4:30 a.m. every morning, if that's any comfort.

And Karen, nope, not knocked up yet, just big boobs for no particular reason--LOL!

Anonymous said...

I heard there's a ransacking party over here...

suzanne, are you okay? Do you need a hug and some wine? I sure do. Can I come over???

just bob said...

Party at Blotties!!!!

wv: blati (seriously)

kylie said...

let me know when the naked table dancing begins

Suzanne said...

I wrote a whole hell of alot in response, didn't finish, then walked back in to finish, but instead deleted it all. Why? Because I want you to have a great time here. Relax. Enjoy yourselves. I'm always here and I love every single one of you. Every comment is precious and so much fun.

With a ton of love,
Me! XO

Frick lives to chew on my hand

MARIA said...

I am so happy you visited me, dear Suzanne.
I love your beautiful, lovely home-site.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Barbara said...

Thanks for visiting and commenting Suzanne. Very encouraging.

I love cats too but do not have any since my 2 Siamese died. so a fellow cat lover, garden lover, rose lover.

Have scrolled through your posts and your type pad posts. Interesting.

Suzanne said...

I had to look at my bank account before leaving for the park so stopped by. God I love you all. Barbara, my new friend from England cracked me up. She called my blog "interesting." That's an interesting word!!! Gotta go. I'll try to come back later and say hello.

Love to all XO

CIELO said...

Hi Beautiful! What a delight it was to see your pretty face last evening at the house in the roses.... is always such a joy! knowing that you're around, and doing well, although we don't get to see (or write) each other too often, makes me happy. You are so special, and I love you....

Blessings to you and yours, my dear..


Cece said...

Someone forgot to send me the memo about a party going on here at Suze's blog while she was Out of her mind. I cannot you guys started the party without me. And no I AM NOT TOTALLY SELF ABSORBED. No matter what MRS. SuZANNA says.

Who brought drinks?
I guess I'll have to bring a keg over from The Onion. Has anyone seen Suzanne's blender? I think I could whip us up some fruity drinks. I found some berries in her fridge, and ice in the freezer, and I got some rum in my coat pocket. The gangs all here, so let's get this party started!

david mcmahon said...

Thanks for the visit and the generous comment. Yes, I do check out kyliesonja as often as I can. From memory, the post you told me about last week got a mention on Post Of The Day.

Yes, she's a lovely writer.

Suzanne said...

Hey baby...I think it's just you an me for the moment. Put that bottle back in your coat and go sit over on the REAL Macy's sofa (comfy isn't it!!!). I'll bring you some tea. You hungry? I have some really tasty shortbread cookies with raspberry centers. Interested? Try to keep the volume down, okay? I just got this FREAKIN' WACKY HOUSEHOLD to go to sleep. Trust me, you don't want to know what it's like when everyone's awake. No really. You don't.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what an exhauting day. I'll have a cup of tea and a cookie too. I spent most of the day washing Dorito cheese off slipcovers. Bob's gonna have to get a new hobbie. That or I'll kick his ass clear out the door. I told him "You mess it up, you clean it up," and what did he do? He left without doing one load of laundry. Okay...Bob's out!!!

Tea's on!


Leah said...

I'll have a cup with you! I'll even help out with the laundry.

just bob said...

** puts on coffee pot, and Krispy Kreme's for a Sunday morning.

Suzanne said...

God I'm laughing. I always arrive at my blog last. Bob, I was just at yours. Leah sweetie, you load the washer and then we'll all sit and have coffee and donuts. I don't eat donuts, so if I pass out from a sugar high, please call 911. No, really.

Love you guys!!!


Suzanne said...


Honey, I can't comment on Google. I don't know why, but I just can't. I hope you read this. I'm so sorry for your son. He's a great guy and so brave. And you're a great mom. He'll heal and I hope remain the remarkable young man he is. He did the right thing. I'm so proud of kids who do. You raised such an amazing kid. Kids like him change the world because they see the bigger picture. They really do.

I love you darling and I want you to know my heart just breaks for you and your son. You're such a wonderful woman and mom. He'll be okay honey because he's brave and smart. The young guys who did this to him will probably never find their way. And that's sad. But your son will.

I love you dear.
XO Happy Valtine's Day to you too.

just bob said...

Hi Blottie... pass the nachos

Suzanne said...

Sofa slipcover's all clean and waiting for you! Love you baby and thanks for checking in.


just bob said...

Blottie... please pass the salsa this way for the nachos.

Debbie in CA : ) said...

Just popped in to see what was going on during your vacation. this doesn't sound much like a vacation, dear one. I'm laughing (and cringing about the doritos -- ick, and double ick on the sofa . . . shame on you Bob, mind your manners in a lady's house).

You will always blog . . . even on vacation. EnJOY! : D I'll come back to check on you later.

I LOOOOOOOOOVE Lavender. Just bought some "mood mist" packed with lavender -- spray it in the air, inhale, feel uplifted. Sounds great! (Hope I didn't waste $8.) I'm off! XO

Skeeter said...
