Breakfast

... thanks to Auntie Laura's rescue hens , and now she has two new Rhode Island chicks brought home from school in a shoe box after some negotiation between herself and Mr Porteous who one assumes manages the school farm . I haven't yet seen the new babies but have heard delightful descriptions of them backing away in horror from a butterfly and cheeping happily in the old guinea pig quarters where they will stay until they reach sufficient majority to withstand the pressures of life with the Big Girls , and can be moved in with Joan and Co .

Meanwhile life continue here . The washing machine started smoking last night , as Pearl sat contentedly in front of it breathing in the smoke and ignoring the vibrations . Her deafness must be an asset at times .

I continue to email my friend on an hourly basis as we compare the merits of the various little green cars , with nothing much happening on that front . I feel sad saying goodbye to my old car is the problem . It has seen me through five years with many changes . The end of an era . I need to move on , but .... while that orange light is not flashing I am hanging on .

Try putting a nicotine patch on the washer, smoking is not good for anyone, and 2nd hand smoke is bad for you also. At least it's putting out good (from a feline perspective) vibes. Maybe a good stiff belt will help.

I had a car for 12 years, and I loved it. When it was time to finally move on I had a really hard time doing it!

In former times an old car looked and felt awful to drive . Mine , at eight years old still feels good as new . Then there are those AA moments to consider ?
