Follow Up Friday: Lots of Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Forever Fluffy:

We have been inundated with kindness!  Mom and I continue to dig out of our comment pile.  We deeply apologize for tardy replies; we’re up to 50 something… bear with us we will answer every thoughtful soul who so graciously stopped by to offer condolences.  Also, thanks to our bestest feline friend, Savvy, and Miss Linda for commissioning such a beautiful badge from Miss Ann @ Zoolatry. We smile every time we scroll past it.

Speaking of Miss Ann, check out the auction going on to help her family’s medical situation.  Mom donated a $150 Sessions with the Kitchen Counselor gift certificate. Also, Savvy and Miss Linda, are looking for three good K9s!  (couldn’t resist writing that…)  In case you’ve missed it, my sweet Savannah hosts a monthly series, Life Changing Interviews with Savannah: Real Cat and Dog Rescues Are Talking…“, and while her feline slots filled up swiftly, three K9 slots remain. 

Blustery Mr. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac:

Once again, the pet blogging community left Mom with her jaw hanging open.  The outpouring of genuine care, good wishes, concern, prayers, and support before AND after the storm passed us and deluged (vocab building project VBP) the Gulf Coast was extraordinary.  We passed on some preparation suggestions to Rumpy and family, who moved into the “H” zone the week before.  We tried to check on those blog families in the area as well.  Here’s what we know from our connections:

  • Miss Wendy, one of our bff’s from Golden Rescue S. Florida – everyone’s ok.
  • Miss Rebecca – our other bff from GRSF – took on water, wet vacced the inside of the house; waited for the water to drain and was planning to clean the debris in the backyard yesterday, before Jack did another drop and roll!
  • Miss Beverly and Neve’s daughter/human sister, husband and family – all ok, not sure if daughter’s house took on water yet, they’re still at another family member’s home.
  • My Grandma’s niece-in-law (she sent in name and now Mom cannot find it… darn) and Gus, the 120 lb K9 evacuated from their houseboat before the storm hit… so far, no further updates.
  • Miss Mary Ann’s friend, “Louisiana Lori” – everyone’s ok, (attending LSU game this weekend – good sign!) – fence down in parts, a few more house issues and some other family members yet to check in.

Avians:

Remember we worried about seeing only one blue macaw?  Miss Mary Ann first shared with us and then we saw for ourselves the duo flying magnificently overhead.  We hope they found cover during Mr. Blustery Tropical Storm Isaac.

Speaking of avians, we neglected to mention that during the few weeks of daily sightings, Miss Mary Ann named the arrogant persistent peacock! For those of you familiar with the TV show, M*A*S*H, Charles Winchester joined the unit after a few seasons.  He was a haughty (VBP) arrogant, know-it-all, who thought he was above everyone else, just like you know who!  So, may we present, Winchester the Peacock!

Another great catch up day.

Mischief Monday – Neve Does the Drop and Roll

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Well, it’s Sunday evening here at Casa Jet and WE HAVE ELECTRICITY! Tropical Storm Isaac is passing us with bands of downpours and wind gusts.  No complaints as breaks in the bands allowed Mom to take us out for afternoon potty.  We’re hoping to catch another break soon for our after dinner walk?

They expect this rain/wind rhythm to continue through tomorrow as we experience the “dirty side” of the storm.  We’ve had some tornado watches, cross your paws we get rid of those thingies really fast!  Our thoughts and prayers for safe passage go out to those next in Isaac’s path.

*Pawnote: Mom’s transcription was interrupted by a break in the weather.  We walked a FULL evening constitutional.  Mom told me how proud she was that I left the house.  The breeze felt great in my fur!  JJ and I “spoke” to our new golden neighbors, Winston and Dylan who chatted from the fence.

On the lighter side… last Thursday, Miss Beverly sent mom a text message thingie with the following picture:

It seems Neve (usually snowy white) performed her best drop and roll in thebackyard.  The only issue – Miss Beverly is having pool work done and there is a big mound of stuff.  Apparently, Neve rolled in a pile of stuff containing a DEAD POSSUM (Miss Beverly had a human manly man bury it in the yard, since, I, manly man Jetty could not be reached.)

Coincidentally, my Golden Rescue buddy, Jack, had a similar adventure the same evening. Jack had Miss Rebecca transcribe, “BTW I haven’t been on to comment, because I couldn’t resist the drop and roll the other night and lost my computer privileges.”  Dixie performs a carefully crafted drop and roll many evenings during our evening constitutionals.  Miss Mary Ann gives her the naughty speech, something about Dixie-middle name-last name, you are SO GOING TO GET A BATH!  Miss Beverly gave Neve a bath al fresco (on the patio) and Jack got a mini-spa with waterless bath solution.

Does this count for a MM hat trick? Or one giant drop and roll Mischief achievement?

Another great Drop and Roll day!
